What is this all about?


Here's every October 24 game that mattered in San Francisco Giants history.

1989 World Series resumes 10-27

2002 World Series Game 5 home vs. Angels, the day before we won the first World Series game in San Francisco in 40 years to even the Series at 2 - here's the last game in San Francisco and it is a dream, we scored 3 in both the first and second and win the game 16-4. Kent had two homers and a double, Bonds two doubles and a single, Lofton tripled with two singles, Aurilia hit a 3 run homer, Bell and Snow had multiple hit games and Snow also saved little Darren Baker's life. A near century of Giant shortcoming and frustration just burst through in a torrent of thunderous hits.  We're a game from our first ever World Championship.

2010 World Series begins 10-27

2012 World Series Game 1 home vs. Tigers, we were down 2-0 in the NLDS and 3-1 in the NLCS, how does that portend for the World Series?  Pablo Sandoval doesn't give the Tigers a chance to find out, he homers off Justin Verlander in the first and the third, and homers off Al Alburquerque in the fifth, becoming just the 4th man to homer 3 times in one World Series game (Ruth twice, Reggie, Pujols) and the only one who did it in his first 3 at bats.  Barry Zito goes 5 2/3, giving up just one earned, and he's replaced by Tim Lincecum who strikes out 5 and doesn't allow a baseunner in 2 1/3. We win 8-3 and take a 1-0 lead in the World Series.

2014 World Series game 3, we split the first two in Kansas City, we come home and drop game 3. We only got 4 hits and never led, we scored two in the bottom of the 6th to cut our deficit to 3-2, but didn't threaten the rest of the way.  We go down 2 games to 1, game 4 is tomorrow.

See you tomorrow.  Go Giants!
