Only eight more innings to go! Last time both teams scored at least five runs: 2005. So there's hope this game gets interesting. Especially if Tony La Russa brings in Tim Lincecum.
Just a joke there, Giants fans. Take it easy. Relax. Your guys did well. Be proud.
Matt Cain back out for a second inning of work. That's almost old school! The fear is the American League just packs it in and starts hacking early in the count. Which wouldn't necessarily be a bad approach, I suppose, as Cain is likely to fire a lot of fastballs with a 5-0 lead. Cain retires Prince Fielder on a fly to center, Adrian Beltre on a pop-up to shortstop and David Ortiz on a fly to the left-field corner. I think that half-inning took about 47 seconds. Or about as long it takes Josh Beckett to deliver one pitch.
