Hector and Wednesdays

Not the greatest headline but it sums up how I felt about today's game in Colorado. Hector Sanchez delivered a walk-off single in the 12th a week ago (it was about 12:15 am) and then hit a grand slam in the 11th today late in the Denver afternoon. That's seriously clutch and shows that the guy is in pretty fine shape after catching all innings...

They had scored 11 runs in the last 6 games, then got 12 today. Michael Morse had 2 homers and said this after the game --  "Like I've said before, we have such a good offense," Morse said. "We needed something to ignite us. I think that was today."

Let's hope he's right. Some nice reporting by Henry Schulman of the SF Chron --

When Sanchez hit an 11th-inning grand slam to deliver the Giants a 12-10 victory in Wednesday's classic Coors Field slugfest - the Giants hit six home runs, two by Sanchez - his legs were cramping after catching a game that lasted 4 hours, 26 minutes.
Sanchez was running out of squats, Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval were out of the game and, well, "emergency catcher Yusmeiro Petit" does not have a great ring to it.
