What is this all about?


Here's every October 26 game that mattered in San Francisco Giants history.

1989 World Series Game 3 is Tomorrow 

2002 World Series Game 6...when Russ Ortiz got Garret Anderson to ground out to open the 7th inning we had a 5 run lead with 8 outs left to get, that's a 97% chance to win the game, meaning, a 97% chance to win the first World Championship in San Francisco Giants history.  So, just sit in that for a moment. Dunston hit a 2 run homer in the 5th, Barry homered in the 6th, when Jeff Kent singled home Kenny Lofton in the top of the 7th we had a 5-0 lead.  Ortiz got Anderson, then gave up back to back singles and got lifted.  On the 8th pitch of the next at bat Felix Rodriguez gave up a 3 run homer to Scott Spezio, but even with the lead cut to 5-3 at the end of the inning we still had an 86% chance to win the World Series. And then they got 3 more in the 8th to beat us.  Erstad homered off Worrell and Glaus hit a 2 run double off of Nen.  We went down in order in the 9th and the series was tied.  Game 7 is tomorrow. It's the worst loss in San Francisco history. 

2010 World Series Game 1 is Tomorrow

2012 World Series Game 3 is Tomorrow

2014 World Series Game 5 home vs. Royals, a dozen years after we failed to close out the Angels we were 2 games to 2 against the Royals, this is the last game in San Francisco of the series, Madison Bumgarner throws a complete game 4 hit shutout, striking out 8 and walking none, we win 5-0 to move within a game of the World Championship.  Brandon Crawford and Juan Perez both drove in two runs, the Royals only put one man in scoring position the entire game, we head back to Kansas City the same way we went back to Anaheim in '02, needing to win one of the final two games.

See you tomorrow.  Go Giants!
