Even better, St. Louis is up 3-1 on the Giants. I can live with a rematch of the '68 Series.

You can take some comfort from the fact that the Bummers did score a run or two. (Didn't they? Bwahaha!)
Let's not forget their bloated media-w***e twin in Boston also lost nearly 90 games this year. ESPN must be reeling with how to cover baseball with the Red Sox and Yankees now nearing non-factor status in the league.

Has any team won three consecutive elimination games twice in one post season? That is what the Giants must accomplish to stay in the chase.

I have no idea.

I just found this website. Haven't had time to fully peruse it. Maybe it has the answer.

I believe the 1985 Kansas City Royals did just that. I know that they were down to (ironically) St. Louis 3-1 before coming back out and shutting down the Cardinals offense, allowing only 2 runs in the remaining 27 innings of play. I think those same Royals also came back from 3-1 to beat the Toronto Blue Jays, who were then managed by Bobby Cox.

I'd love to see a Detroit/St. Louis World Series. The mainstream sports media would probably get lost on the way to either city.

I looked it up and you are correct....so history is on the Giants side....if this is a every 27 years cycle sort of thing.
