What is this all about?


Here are all the October 22 games that mattered in San Francisco Giants history.

1989 World Series Game 3 is 10-27

2002 World Series Game 3 it's the first World Series game in the new park, the first World Series game in San Francisco since '89, and the Angels just beat us to death, they got 4 in the third, 4 in the 4th, they got 16 hits and won 10-4 to take a 2-1 series lead.  Livan Hernandez gave up 5 earned, 6 Angels had multi-hit games. It's like the '89 series never ended.  Game 4 tomorrow.

2010 NLCS Game 6 is tomorrow

2012 NLCS Game 7 home vs. St Louis, well here is an improbable turn of events.  We killed two elimination games in Cincinnati in the NLDS and then beat them on the road in a winner take all game 5.  Here, in the NLCS, we went down 3-1, survived two more elimination games, and now face the Cards in a winner takes the pennant game, just as we did back in 1987, 25 years prior. It's over early.  We score 7 in the first 3, the big blow a Hunter Pence 3 run double off Joe Kelly in the third that gave us a 5-0 lead. Matt Cain and 4 relievers shut out the Cards 9-0 and for the 5th time in history, the San Francisco Giants win the pennant.

2014 World Series Game 2, we took the opener but lose this one, getting the split in Kansas City to open the series. We were 2-2 going to the bottom of the 6th, but the Royals got into our pen, Hunter Strickland was particularly ineffective, giving up a 2 run Salvador Perez double and a 2 run Omar Infante homer.  We lose 7-2 and head home for Game 3.

See you tomorrow.  Go Giants!
