So the Giants at Great American Ball Park for the duration, down 2 and facing elimination.
I’m hard put to find a happy face for that, so how about a fight song from 2010 instead?
On the positive side, pitchers very rarely throw 2 No Hitters 2 weeks apart and if you’re a Chicago School Whitewater Economist you have your rattles and dances and expectations that the Giants’ offense will revert to the mean after under performing the first two games.
Also the Reds’ Homer Bailey (13 – 10, 3.68 ERA) is not as good on paper as the Giants’ counter Ryan Vogelsong (14 – 9, 3.37 ERA). He’s good enough to win though he was better before the All-Star break than after.
And September 28th was so long ago.
