Ryan Vogelsong delivered another sterling effort and the Giants force Game Seven. One more win and they go to the World Series. The Vogelgong tolled for five of the first seven Cardinals, who whiffed helplessly against a fastball assault. It set the tone for the evening and the Giants pulled off a dramatic and convincing 6-1 win. Chris Carpenter got burned by both Pablo Sandoval and his infield defense, lasting only four innings and yielding five runs. Two St. Louis relievers kept the lid on things until the 8th when Ryan Theriot delivered a pinch-hit RBI single for a bit of insurance. The Giants 'pen got the last six outs on 21 pitches (seven batters). It was a crisp, efficient (2:55), cold-blooded evisceration of the defending champs. The magical 2012 season continues! Can you believe it?
Matt Cain takes the hill tomorrow with a chance at the National League pennant. I've got shpilkes!
p.s. Yes, we had chicken enchiladas for dinner.
