Giants Win!

The San Francisco Giants made something of a hash of the second half of the regular season, but managed to squeak into the post-season, barely making it to the one-game wild card playoff with the New York Mets. Both teams trotted out their ace pitchers, and the game was a real pitchers' duel. Then in the top of the ninth inning, Conor Gillaspie (who he?) hit a 3-run home run to break the game open. Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner held the Mets scoreless in the bottom of the ninth for a complete-game shutout and their ticket to the main playoffs. After the celebrate tonight (probably not that hard), they go on to Chicago where they face the Cubs in the National League Division Series.

It's an even-numbered year. You gotta believe!
