Episode #226: Snatchin’ Walk-offs

The Giants’ season took a depressing turn when they were swept at home by the Dodgers. But, being #ResilientAF, they brushed themselves off and won 6 of their next 7 games, including 3 of 4 in Dodger Stadium. That weekend was highlighted by a gut-wrenching, classic torturous Giants game as the Dodgers tied it up with a pinch-hit, 2 out, 3-run bomb to tie the game at 5. The very next batter, Albert Pujols, sent what appeared to be the walk-off blast over the left field wall until Mike Tauchman put on his cape and lept over the fence to snatch defeat out of thin air. The Giants proceeded to put a 3 spot in the 10th and held on for the win. That propelled them to 3 straight over the Dodgers. Chad and Willie talk about the last two weeks of baseball, the shift, Gausman winning NL pitcher of the month, postseason predictions, the upcoming series vs the streaking Cubs (9-1 over 10…and swept the Padres) and more.

Join us for episode #225 as we chat about the 26-16 first-place Giants as they stay hot. Yes, they should be 6-0 on this road trip, but sh$# happens. Despite having the best record in all of baseball, the Giants have still been walked off 6 times on the road. That’s HALF of their 12 road losses. As Eric put it, they aren’t #ResilientSF, they are #ResilientAF. We chat about the Pittsburgh and Cincinnati series, and preview the BIG series against the Dodgers this weekend. (apologies for some audio level problems, they will be fixed for the next episode)

Join Chad and Eric’s discussion about the last week of Giants baseball and the surprising development that this team finds itself alone in first place for the first time since August 2016. Remarkable for a rag-tag team, eh? They review the series at home vs Colorado and three at San Diego. The starters continue to dominate while the hitting and bullpen still need to pick it up. But hey, we can’t complain much at this point. Then there were the infamous three straight balls called strikes in the 9th in San Diego (see tweet below). Ump had a dinner reservation, apparently. This and more in episode 223 of the TortureCast!
