MLB Playoffs Day 18: NLCS 6 - Giants at Philles, 7:50 PM

Edit: Game starts at 7:57 PM ET since the ALCS has finished.

***

Phillies Elimination Day, Take Two!

Game 6 worked out for the Rangers, but the Giants are on the road where they split the first two games of the NLCS.

It's a rematch of Game 2's matchup between Jonathon Sanchez and Roy Oswalt. The Phillies won 6-1. Pitching lines:

Sanchez: 6 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 7 K
Oswalt: 8 IP, 3 H, ER, 3 BB, 9 K

Oswalt also pitched the bottom of the 9th inning in Game 4 (0.2-2-1-0-0), and lost the game for Philadelphia.

For today's game, I am predicting the Giants win 1-0 in 31 innings.

Go Giants!

Welp! Since there's no ALCS Game 7 they changed today's game to 7:57 PM. Stupid.

I'll be watching this in the Bar in rainy San Francisco. Got more stuff out of our apartment today -- it's beginning to look a little less hellish in there now.

Ish said...

Good thing Game 6 wasn't in SF then. Glad The Bar was able to re-open.

Ish said...

Giants start Game 6 with a base hit.

Ish said...

CRAP.

Ish said...

Tie game!!!

Zenslinger said...

Crazy inning. And hope to close this out on 6.

SancheZ's bĂȘte noire is the walk. His BAA does not match his WHIP.

Ish said...

Did he get ejected or just relieved?

I had it on mute. (Watching the Bruins on the big TV)

Zenslinger said...

Relieved, I believe.

Ish said...

Strange. Seemed early.

Zenslinger said...

Bochy has a short leash policy in effect.

Ish said...

Apparently so. Bruins lost, so hopefully the Giants can relieve me of my unsatisfactory mood.

Zenslinger said...

Werth: worth the money? Good in RF tonight.

Ish said...

He'd certainly be good in Boston. Then there's the impending bidding war for Cliff Lee.

Ish said...

Little comebacker! Giants escape.

redsock said...

Better not be 31 innings. I'm missing it. ... Let a weekday WS game go 31.

Zenslinger said...

I predict no more than 13.

Ish said...

Feels like the Giants are trailing in this game.

Ish said...

My prediction is already wrong since it won't be 1-0.

Ish said...

Hmm. Walking Huff to get to Posey.

Ish said...

Wow do the pipes run in the Kalas family!

Zenslinger said...

Voices in the Bar question singer's sexuality.

Ish said...

DOUBLE PLAY!!!!! #NLCS

Ish said...

Why did I do #NLCS?

I am Twittered.

Ish said...

Take Two:

DOUBLE PLAY!!!!

redsock said...

i am amazed at the huge amount of one-run games the Giants have played this month. i guess that is partially where the "torture" description comes from.

redsock said...

come on, wilson. one more.

redsock said...

CALLED K!

L-girl said...

Giants!!!!!!!! Yeah!

L-girl said...

Wow, that was some crazy tense baseball.

Yay San Francisco. One of my favourite places in the world vs Texas, that one's a no-brainer.

Zenslinger said...

Pandemonium here

Zenslinger said...

SF likes you too!

Was recording Giants radio during the 9th inning. It definitely was tense, even had my heart thumping! Jon Miller was doing the game which I totally forgot about. He's really good at play-by-play when he's doing a local broadcast and when Joe Morgan is nowhere to be found.
