Unbelievable that the Giants are going to force Game 5 after being absolutely dead in the water coming out of San Francisco. Only 4 runs in the first 3 games, and "explode" for 8 today.

Nats have got to find an answer, because they've been hammered in this series by the Cards. Good pitching only gets you so far. The Nats are somehow hitting .257 as a team, but only have scored 7 runs.

The Nats had a pretty good offense in the regular season; the Cardinals only outscored them by 34 total runs. Guess they've just gone cold at the wrong time, and/or Cardinal pitching has been surprisingly strong.

Cardinals were the worst matchup for a young, inexperienced Nats squad. You are seeing again why the Redbirds are a problem.

The Birds are looking good. Can they move ahead?

It's embarrassing for Oakland to not lift the tarp for a playoff game.

Yankees pinch hit Ibanez for A-Rod in the 9th, who promptly hits a game-tying homer. Baseball's awesome.

Fielder hits it deep to right to make it 2-0 Tigers.

And then he hits the GW homer in the 12th.

O's first and only walk-off loss this season.

Dammit.

That was one helluva baseball game in New York; excellent pitching, clutch hitting, high drama, and a walk off. Baltimore will have to climb up off the mat after the Yankee haymaker...

Stephen Drew made the first out at third in a one-run game. Big mistake.

Nice bench play for the Yankees. No Ray Olmedo's around. (Or is it Jose Lopez?????)

Even worse is that they're saying the third-base coach sent him.

Yes, the Yankees this season relied on such bench stars as Andruw Jones, Jayson Nix, Chris Stewart and Dewayne Wise.
Why can't we get players like that?

Hell, we GOT Wise back, and everyone was all up in arms. This despite filling in more than adequately for De Aza when he was hurt. He wasn't grossly overused like he was with Ozzie. Yet, from hearing the reaction of certain people on here, you'd think he was the sole reason we lost the division.
