Re: Is anyone else nervous of a potential Game 5?
Game 3 will either be a quickly-forgotten bump in the road or a day that will live in infamy.
Brandon's baserunning gaffe followed by the low stirke call on Rolen in the first. Bailey gives up two free passes all night - that just happen to be to consecutive hitters leading off an inning. Two seeing eye singles. A passed ball. An error on Rolen....
I give the Giants pitching staff a lot of credit. Affeldt in particular - inducing six or seven weak ground balls (and almos as many broken bats) in two innings. But we let this one get away after being this close to burying them in the very first inning.
