I had to go to a tax class tonight so couldn't watch the second game of the World Series. I kept sneaking peeks at my iPhone Sportacular ap to keep up with the scores. Finally, after several scoreless innings, the Giants led by 1 - 0, then 2 - 0 going into the 8th inning. The next time I looked at my iPhone the game was over and the score was 9 to Zip! I couldn't believe my eyes.
Apparently, Texas's pitching really fell apart in the 8th inning. The bases were loaded, mainly on walks, and two runners were walked home for scores. Then a single scored another two.
The Giants scored seven runs in the 8th inning, their greatest number in Giants post-season history. Their former record was six hits in one inning in the 1937 World Series against the Yankees, a record they tied only yesterday against the Rangers.
I am hoping for a Giants win, but I won't tie myself up in knots with anxiety. We've been here before and watched the dream crumble at the last minute.
I imagine the atmosphere will be different back in Rangers stadium and the Texans will be charged up for a win.
