Post-game thread: Giants sweep Mets, lose one-game series against home plate umpire

New, 1248 comments

And that happened.

The Giants were about to lose. Then they won. Then they didn’t. And then they lost.

Phil Cuzzi had a dreadful game. If he were a shortstop, he would have had six errors. If he were a reliever, he would have given up nine earned runs. If he were an umpire, he’d be a disgrace. Oh, hey, I guess that last one fits. But there were other reasons fo the loss. Freddy Sanchez could have done anything other than hit a weak dribbler with the winning run in scoring position. Brian Wilson could have had a quiet tenth. Eli Whiteside could have called for a fastball instead of five sliders to Ike Davis.

No, just kidding. It was the umpire’s fault. The Giants won. The Giants swept the Mets after a dramatic ninth-inning comeback.
