Greek Giant

Yeah, I love that line from Dave Fleming. That was his home run call on Patrick Bailey’s mammoth three-run home run in the top of the eighth inning that gave the Giants a 5-4 win in New York over the Mets. It was an extraordinary homer and an extraordinary win for the Giants.

Wilmer also went deep in his return to the Big Apple!

Alex Cobb returned from his stint on the IL and pitched well enough.

Bailey also threw out another runner trying to steal, only this was the tying run in the bottom of the ninth and it was Starling Marte. He now is tied in the Majors for Defensive Runs Saved! WOW. Don’t look now ladies and gents but Patrick Bailey is fast becoming a superstar right before our eyes.

As for the Mets? Well their plight is very predictable. Steve Cohen lost his mind spending so much money on Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, two future Hall-of-Famers who have almost completely used up all their bullets. The Metropolitans are in freefall.

The Giants are under-manned in the outfield but somehow still find ways to win. One more win in of the last two games of the series and I will be content. A sweep in this series will send me over the moon.

This is a short one today since it is my day off and Dr. Lefty is on assignment.

Today’s Game

Today’s game in New York against the Mets begins at 4:10 PM. It will be Desclafani against Verlander. I wish the Kung Fu Panda were in the line up!
