Today, the Giants and the Cubs played a game in which the atmosphere was, dare I say, a classic?
Amidst the organ churning and the vendors vending, the barbershop quartets were singing their tunes.
Matt Cain was spectacularly Matt Cain-y, going 8+ innings, striking out seven, giving up only one run. Good stuff.
And the socks — striped stirrup high socks for all. Now that was a glorious thing.
Sure, the Cubs were on the board first, but the Giants managed to score two runs in the 6th to prevent Cain from being Cained. With, uh, Aubrey Huff drawing a bases loaded walk to tie the game in the first place.
I don’t know, y’all, just roll with it and don’t complain, I guess.
And Cain gets base hits! And breaks up double plays! If there were any Giant more baseballier than Cain…nope. No one is baseballier than Cain.
Javier Lopez pitched 2/3 of an inning, entering the game after Cain walked Starlin Castro. Two pitches, double play. Bam. Sergio Romo in to close. Three pitches, Alfonso Soriano grounds out, ballgame.
And Matt Cain wasn’t Cained today.
