Thursday, October 12, 2017


What is this all about?

Here are all the October 12 games that mattered in San Francisco Giants history.  Spoiler alert, this hasn't been a great day for us.

1962 World Series is still raining.  Game 6 on 10-15

1987 NLCS. Game 6 tomorrow. 

1989 National League Champions. Bay Bridge Series starts 10-14

2002 NLCS Game 3, we took the first 2 in St Louis but drop game 3 at home, 5-4. Matheny and Edmond homered off Russ Ortiz in the 4th and 5th to give the Cards a 4-1 lead, we got them all back on one swing of Barry Bonds' bat in the bottom of the 5th, he hit a 3 run bomb off of Chuck Finley. But Jay Witasick gave up a solo shot to Eli Marrero in the 6th for the final margin of victory. We're still up 2-1 and Game 4 is tomorrow.

2010 NLCS starts 10-16

2012 NLCS starts 10-14 

2014 NLCS Game 2 - we took game 1, but the Cards even things up here, beating us 5-4 just like they did a dozen years prior. We had a 3-2 lead when Gregor Blanco singled off Carlos Martinez in the 7th to score Brandon Crawford, but homers in the 7th and 8th (Oscar Tavares, Matt Adams) gave the Cards the 4-3 lead as we went to the 9th. With 2 outs Matt Duffy scored the tying run on a Trevor Rosenthal wild pitch, but Kolten Wong took Sergio Romo's second pitch out of the yard in the bottom of the 9th to even the series.  We head home in two days.

That's it?  That's it.  See you tomorrow for a couple of games against St Louis.  Go Giants!
