Last night’s game didn’t have any situation as tense as the Yastrzemski grand slam. It was just a standard blowout with the Giants leaping out in front by 11 in the fifth inning and winning by six. The point is that there wasn’t a single shred of data that pointed to the Giants winning that game on Tuesday. Sometimes you’re just destined to win or lose a game because that’s how the baseball gods want it to happen.


The Diamondbacks and Giants play the final game of their 4-game series this afternoon at 3:45 ET. A D-Backs defeat would be road loss number 23 in a row — the most all-time. Based on what we’ve seen thus far, I have no doubt history will be made.
