Blame the pitching staff and the botched changes in the 8th for that 7-run romp. Putting in a replacement that had about 4 minutes to warm up (who then proceeded to walk in 2 runs with 12/13 pitches being balls), and by the time run #2 comes in, Texas finally decides to warm up another arm. If Texas wants any sort of chance at this series, they need to start acting like they actually give a crap. (Nolan Ryan was LIVID last night...can only imagine how pissed he was tonight!!!)
I was with my mother and father in law who have been waiting a loooong time for this. Very exciting. My father-in-law grew up a Giants fan in New York, and moved here in '56, only to have them follow him here. Hard to describe his emotions right now. Amazing.
3 generations of my family (including myself) have been born and raised in the city!!! i waited for 2010 my entire life....I never imagined 3 in 5!!! But hats off to the Royals on a great series. We beat the Rangers and swept the Tigers...but we battled the Royals. What a series!!! GO GIANTS!!!
