Bryce Harper Mad He Flied Out, Actually Hits Home Run

Yusmeiro Petit has a weird position on the Giants. He was passable as a spot starter, but couldn't earn a place in a strong San Francisco rotation. The Giants don't need him to close out games, either, and Petit is capable of pitching longer than only an inning. But last night, in the longest MLB postseason game… » 10/05/14 1:06pm 10/05/14 1:06pm
