Nine down, two to go

A typically close game at Mays Field turns into a blowout as the Giants put up 7 in the bottom of 8th -- all after two were out. Henry Schulman of the Chronicle notes that it's the first World Series shutout by the Orange and Black in 48 years.

I still remember vividly being at that game with my Dad. Jack Sanford closed down the Yanks 2-0 on three hits and Stretch homered to win Game 2 and even the Series. Unfortunately, that set the pattern for the rest of the Series with the Yanks and Giants alternating wins. This time around, the Giants look like they might make it to four wins first.

Does video exist of the McCovey liner to Richardson?

Yep, here's video, though you don't actually get to see Richardson catch the ball:

Note that the announcer calls him Willie Mc-"Cove"-ee, as in McCovey Cove. Prescient.
