It came from an unlikely source. The Giants were down, but not out, and light-hitting Edgar Renteria delivered the biggest home run for the Giants in years. Rafael Betancourt has been fantastic for the Rockies since coming over in a trade, but he tried to sneak a fastball by Renteria on the inside corner. It caught too much of the plate, and Renteria put the Giants into a lead they would not relinquish.
The Giants are now in a tie for the wild-card lead, and they have the momentum of a runaway freight train. Come on, rest of the league. Just try to stop us!
This team just might win the World Series. They just might. We're in this thing!
I can remain in my Norma Desmond-like fog for the rest of the night, replaying events from weeks ago in order to retain my sanity, or I can think about tonight's game for even a single minute longer and start throwing things out of my window. I'll start with the inanimate objects, but I won't make any promises as to what I'll do if I run out of inanimate objects. So I'll just ignore reality and drink. A lot. Great game, fellas.
