Giants 6, Cardinals 1: And we head to Game 7, as the Giants continue to only really want to turn it on this postseason once they’re facing elimination. And of course, as everyone predicted, it happened thanks to a great Ryan Vogelsong start,which followed a great Barry Zito start,which all came while people were hearing rumors that Tim Lincecum—who has been relegated to the bullpen—is on the trading block.
Baseball is one giant mindf**k sometimes.
In that Game 7, which is under a pretty hefty threat of rain right now, we’ll see Matt Cain take on Kyle Lohse in a rematch of Game Three. Lohse won that one and has been fantastic this postseason. Cain, less so, but the guy can pitch a little, and it’s definitely a strong matchup.
