Bam!! Giants take the double-header from the Mets, with some massive multi-run homers and a double play that was absolutely NUTS. Backhanded glove throw by Burriss to an open handed grab by Crawford at second, rifle to first....

AND Sandoval ties Willie Mays' record in games batted at 16.

*swoon*

Wow! And that is the reason Darvish is worth all that he got! 8 1/3 shut out innings his first time facing the spankees! It was a thing of beauty! 10 K's!! Some excerpts...

''You hear a lot of guys get hyped and he was everything that you'd heard,'' Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira said. ''We had a gameplan to make him throw strikes, and he definitely did that. If you tried to be patient you're down 0-1, 0-2. If you tried to be aggressive every pitch seemed like it started in the zone, then moved out of the zone.''

''He's good. You have to give credit to the way he pitched,'' Cano said. ''He didn't miss any pitch over the plate.''

"He has a lot of different pitches. We really didn't know what to expect," Jeter said. "He had the fastball, two-seamer, cutter, four-seamer, curveball, slider, change-up -- he's got pretty much everything."


Just awesome. And to make things even better, our rival, the Angels, lost again! Hot Damn. Let's go RANGERS!!

That was awesome. Then we got to see the effects of a late double-header last night. Oh well, looking good.

Mariano Rivera down. Knee injury, hopefully not bad.

Possibly career ending because he was gonna retire after this year anyway. So in this case year-ending=career ending. If it had happened to someone younger I doubt if it would have been "career ending". Even so, it's a sh!tty way to end it all.

Didn't know he was planning on retiring this year. But your right, either way, it sucks to end like that.
