When the World Series is tied 1-1, one of the two teams has gone on to win 100% of the time.
It's going to be a great weekend at AT&T Park. Can Yost use Butler out of the bullpen?
Who would've thought that we'd be worried about a Lincecum injury? Hamstring?
There ya go, Timmy
The wait is over. Lincecum on mound to pitch the seventh.
"I'M MAD BECAUSE I GAVE UP MY FIFTH HR SO I'M GOING TO YELL AT YOU!! ARGGGGH!!!"
Sorry, Hunter Strickland shouldn't be concerned with Salvador Perez in the batters box waiting to celebrate with his teammate.
Hunter Strickland gives up another Homer. 5th of the postseason. The frustration takes over
Ok Strickland isn't ready for October.
Peavy has never made it out of sixth inning in postseason. This will be interesting. He very leisurely strolled to mound to start sixth.
Jake Peavy has overcome shaky start and retired 10 in a row ....
Welp. That was a waste
Don't want to get sidetracked on this again, but is Harold Reynolds listening to anything Joe Buck says? He's repeating him incessantly.
Nori Aoki having another wanna getaway moment in RF
Question in press box from local writers: How does Sandoval only get a double off his drive off cf wall? Cease with diet jokes
Blanco HR is already his third hit of the series. Was hitting .170 in postseason before Game 2. So much for "light-hitting" Gregor...
Malone, "I'm optimistic obviously. We're going to approach this last preseason game like it's a regular season game." Kings vs Lakers Friday
Giants don't fear velocity
The White Shark comes up big!
Royals icon throws out first pitch , riles up crowd.
Man Cal is hilarious! He knows they hate him and he enjoys every bit of it!
"We cannot continue to do what we're doing and expect to have the results we all want to start our season, " Malone on Kings TOs.
More Malone on Kings turnovers : "Can't beat yourself & opponent in same game, it's impossible." In practice today, "every 5th TO we ran."
Malone on Kings "We are 10th in scoring, 4th in FG%, 7th in 3fg%,Imagine how good we'd be offensively if we actually valued the basketball"
Michael Malone described today's practice as "chippy and emotional but I'm OK with that."
MLB Commissioner Bud Selig made his first official appearance of Series to dedicate Game 2 to fight against Lou Gehrig disease (ALS).
Practice did run longer than normal, because of all the running I presume.
"It was a man decision. It was something that I had to figure out on my own and make a decision for myself.” -Ben McLemore on agent change
Malone said the Kings have to treat Friday's like a regular season game. Won't wake up in a week and suddenly stop the turnovers.
Ben McLemore spoke on firing his agent, Rodney Blackstock. Said it was his decision alone, in no rush to hire a new agent.
Michael Malone said the Kings had to run for every 5 turnovers today in practice and there was a lot of running today, made for a chippy day
GMs can't vote for they're own players.
Omri Casspi is also out on the court after missing Monday's game in San Antonio with a stiff back.
Nik Stauskas (shoulder) and Omri Casspi (back) are on the practice floor shooting after sitting out Monday at San Antonio
Nik Stauskas is out on the floor shooting. Shoulder injury looks fine.
JT Snow tell us that he'd take Madison Bumgarner over Clayton Kershaw based on postseason success.
Sources have confirmed that Ben McLemore has parted ways with agent Rodney Blackstock.
Hunter Pence was asked if he noticed how quiet it got after his HR. He said it was loud in his head. When he plays, "There's an emptiness"
No fireworks when you're down 7-1
If this game was being played in L.A., fans would be rushing for the exits. Very quiet in here.
Madiso Bumgarner rolling now. Settled in and comfortable. Pitching another World Series gem.
And finally, there's the run that required no hit. Something rather odd finally happened...a walked in run.
Who woulda' thought the Giants would have been the first team to bunt in the series lol.
Boy, that is the kind of half-inning that kills teams dead.
Still a surprise when Brandon Crawford boots a ball, the numbers notwithstanding . His 21 errors second most among shortstops.
UFC says Cain Velasquez suffered knee injury and has withdrawn from title fight against Fabricio Werdum in Mexico City on November 15.
Gregor Blanco continues to patrol and cover center field impressively. Been a huge boost defensively. Nice to see his bat coming around too
66 degrees for first pitch. Feels like summer night in Sac, not autumn in Kansas City
Thinking about Curt Schilling's comment on ESPN last night. He sounded skeptical about James Shields, have clear nod to Bumgarner
Should be 4-0 though....
Giants fear no fastball! Hunter Pence dinger! 3-0 in 1st
That would be 24 straight postseason games that Pablo Sandoval has reached base safely in.
I believe that's 3 times this postseason Buster Posey has been out at the plate, yeah?
Not sure why Flannery sent Posey.
Pablo Sandoval fitting back into the World Series again, nicely. Buster Posey meet at the plate trying to score from 1st. Very aggressive
Giants showing to be the aggressors on the base paths early on.
I'm not all about that bass.
Bochy feels momentum is underrated. "Momentum is a beautiful thing."
ICYMI: Kings had today off. Fatigue is a concern with all the travel this preseason. Only two games in California during the preseason.
