What is this all about?

Here are all the October 29 games that mattered in San Francisco Giants history.

2010 World Series Game 3 is tomorrow

2014 World Series Game 7 at Kansas City 52 years ago we lost game 7 to the Yankees, a dozen years ago we lost game 7 to the Angels, the 2014 Giants look for a different outcome on a Wednesday night in Kansas City. Both clubs score 2 in the second.  We get one out singles from Pence/Belt off Jeremy Guthrie and a couple of sac flies turn them into runs.  The Royals come right back off Tim Hudson in their half, Alex Gordon's run scoring double was the big shot.  We go to the pen early, Jeremy Affeldt gets the last out in the second, coming in with 2 on and 2 out to get Nori Aoki, and then he's perfect in the third and fourth.  Our fourth broke the tie, Mike Morse singling home Pablo Sandoval off Kelvin Herrera.  Madison Bumgarner enters in the fifth - he threw 117 pitches in a complete game victory in Game 5 three days before and 106 five days before that in going 7 innings to win Game 1.  On his first pitch, Bumgarner gives up an Omar Infante single to right, he's sacrificed to second, but Bumgarner gets Aoki and Lorenzo Cain to end the inning.  We get a couple of hits in the 6th but can't plate a run.  Bumgarner throws a dozen pitches in a perfect sixth and we head to the 7th still up 3-2.  We go down in order.  The bottom of the 7th takes just 9 pitches for Bumgarner.  In our 8th, Pablo Sandoval doubles with 2 out off Wade Davis, but we can't get the insurance run.  Bumgarner continues - 16 pitches gets him through a perfect 8th and he's retired a dozen straight Royals.  We go down in order in the 9th - Bumgarner comes back to the mound, it's his 21st inning of the Series, he gets the first two men, but Gordon's line drive single is misplayed by Gregor Blanco into three bases - giving the Royals the tying run on third base with 2 out in Game 7 of the World Series. Just as Mays stood on third 52 years prior with 2 out and the Giants trailing by a run in the 9th inning of Game 7.  Salvador Perez is in the Willie McCovey spot - he pops up a 2-2 pitch into foul territory by third base, it's snapped out of the air by Pablo Sandoval, and for the 3rd time in 5 seasons, the San Francisco Giants are World Champions.

Here are your 2014 World Champion San Francisco Giants.  Flags Fly Forever.
