Beauty and the Beast as Giants Beat Rockies

The Giants still in the race in September, a beautiful night at AT&T, and…

Eugenio Velez hits a monster shot to right-center, absolutely destroying the ball, Dexter Fowler on his horse, a young man in hopeless pursuit, too young to give up on it, then somehow making up ground, out-running the baseball and reaching out to 1954 for a ball that had no business being caught, or for that matter landing within the confines of a ballpark. The un-Vic Wertz like Eugenio already half-way to third throws his head back in disbelief, his dismay fleeting as he remembers the Giants still lead 10-2 in the 9th…

Bengie Molina’s bat flying in to the stands on a mighty strike three swing, the mad scurry of a few white people in the rich seats behind Larry Baer, a woman holding both hands on her head as if she’d been hit, a sigh of relief when its apparent she was only terrified and not decapitated….Bengie walking head down to the dugout, not even a peek at the near-death scene. I stare wide-eyed in disbelief at Tim Fin next to me, who’s watching the same surreal scene. “Bengie’s all about Bengie,” he says, and he’s right.

  1. Kudos to the Fantastic Fin……..Molina has shown his true colors during this stretch run (upset about calling up Posey for example)…….good riddance “oh speedy one”
