San Francisco Giants Almost Give Game Away In One Of The Worst Ways Imaginable

It's the bottom top of the ninth, and San Francisco is protecting a 2-1 lead over the Astros. Two out, 1-2 count, man on second. The Giants' Santiago Casilla gets Chris Snyder to swing and miss. Ballga—woops! The ball got away from Hector Sanchez and so he quickly airmails it to first base, pulling Brandon Belt off the bag. But what about Justin Maxwell on sec—oh shit! Here he comes. Safe. Fuck. Tie game.

While it did spoil a rare great start from the all-of-a-sudden terrible Tim Lincecum, Sanchez would redeem himself in the 12th inning with a walkoff single. It really is true what they say, you can't accurately forecast what will happen on a given day during a baseball game.
