Best game of 2011

I didn't have to think twice about this one -- July 6, 2011 -- Giants 6, Padres 5 in 14.

Nate Schierholtz hit two of his nine homers that night. The first was a two-run shot in the 4th; 10 innings later, he hit a high high high fly to right that just made it onto the arcade.

With the Giants down 5-3 in the 8th, Sandoval hit a two-run double to tie it up for the next six innings. Wilson came on in the 9th and did his usual high-wire act, giving up two singles. Then he struck out the side in the 10th.

In fact, the Giants bullpen did not allow a baserunner in extras that night -- it was 15 up and 15 down. Romo took the 11th and 12th; Javier Lopez got them in the 13th and 14th.

And there was the 14th inning stretch that night. A few moments later, on a 1-2 pitch, Nate ended it.

Thanks and Happy New Year to everyone who read this blog this year.

LET'S GO GIANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was one of a few to last the entire game out up the "view reserve". I've alsways been a big Schierhiltz fan, and when he walked to the plate, I called it. BOOM. Best game of 2011, hands down.
