Giants upbeat despite brutal loss

Well, that's what Chris Haft of mlb.com says in his recap. I, for one, found it pretty brutal to watch all those Card HRs tonight. 

They are the ones that have to play the games, not me. This was a tough one, though -- so close.

here's the first few grafs --

The Giants appeared devoid of disappointment after their 5-4 loss Sunday night to the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series. And why not?
Certainly, they missed a chance to jump ahead 2-0 in the best-of-seven series when Kolten Wong led off the Cardinals' half of the ninth by lining Sergio Romo's 1-0 pitch over the right-field barrier to break a 4-4 tie. But the game was so tumultuous that they felt a tad exhilarated, as if they had just finished bungee-jumping or zip-lining. The Giants overcame a 2-0 deficit to inch ahead, 3-2, in the seventh inning and trailed, 4-3, after eight before pulling even in the ninth with a rally that Romo called "inexplicable."
