Live blogging the ninth, game 4
8:15 Holland vs. Ishikawa. Holland who didn't throw a strike in San Francisco, is the Rangers' pitcher in the top of the ninth down 4-0. He walks Ishikawa on a full count.
8:18 Holland vs. Renteria. First pitch strike. Swing and a miss, 0-2. Third pitch called strike three. First out.
8:19 Holland vs. Shierholtz. First pitch, ball, two strikes follow. Shierholtz hits it to center straight at Hamilton, two outs.
8:21 Holland vs. Torres. First pitch ball, 1-0. Another pitch high, 2-0. Swing and a foul, 2-1. Torres fouls off another, 2-2. Batter's advantage gone. 51,520 fans at the stadium. Let the all go hone with ashes in their mouths, especially the evil Bush family, Babs with her crossword problems. Torres hits into an out. the all important bottom of the ninth begins.
8:25 I hate predictions. The Giants ARE GOING TO WIN THIS GAME. THEY ARE BETTER THAN THE RANGERS.
8:26 Brian Wilson vs. Elvis Andrus. Fear the beard, Texas bitchez. First pitch strike. Second pitch ball. Andrus lines out to Shierholtz. One out.
8:28 Wilson vs. Michael Young. Strike then two balls, 1-2. Strike 2-2. Young hasn't swung yet. Now he has. SIT DOWN, MEAT!
8:29 Wilson vs. Josh Hamilton. First pitch, called strike. Second swing and a miss. Third, check swing strikeout. 21 year old Madison Baumgarner shuts out the Rangers in their home park for only the second time this year.
It's about to happen. Mark my words. I'm an old fart that waited since 19-fucking-62.
Let Timmy Smoke!
