And That Happenedby Craig Calcaterra

What a ripoff. Instead of the 12 hours of baseball craziness we got on Wednesday, Thursday's games gave us only 11 1/2 hours. I want my money back.
Giants 6, Reds 4: Buster Posey with the big bomb. Dusty Baker with a bomb of his own. San Francisco moves on to face the winner of ...
Nationals 2, Cardinals 1: Jayson Werth with a bomb of his own, walkoff-style. Decisive Game 5 tonight.
Orioles 2, Yankees 1: Thirteen innings of offensive feebleness -- led by Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez --but J.J. Hardy's RBI double and the good Jim Johnson showing up forces yet another Game 5. Question: I know you pretty much have to play Granderson in center, but does A-Rod even start?
Tigers 6, Athletics 0: It was a nice run for Oakland, but there is no stopping the Verlander (CG SHO, 11K). In his two series starts, Verlander has 16 IP, 1 ER, 22K and 7 hits. Damn.
