Ummm…ouch. Rick Ankiel just did to AT & T Park, with a splashdown shot, what Albert Pujols did to Minute Maid Park and Brad Lidge’s mind back in 2006.
And silence befell them, as if God were about to tell them, but instead the unleashing of a full mayhem.
Now, I’m mos’ definitely rooting for the Giants to win this series, but I’m glad that the Braves are at least trying to make it interesting. Now, the free-swinging Juan Uribe did just get aboard with a base hit with one out in the bottom of the 11th, but Ishikawa just impatiently flied out on the first pitch he saw. Slim chances for that 11th-inning rally.
