More "My Niche Sports" News
Nothing serious really...just a little Sports Talk. After a Travel Day, the San Francisco Giants hosted Game 3 of the National League Championship Series Tuesday at their Bayside Stadium, AT&T Park.
By the time the first pitch was thrown, 1:20PM, the fog had burned off at the Park, and a beautiful almost windless afternoon ensued. With no wind, AT&T Park plays even bigger than usual. It's a Pitcher's Ballpark, harder than most to hit homeruns from.
Brilliant pitching by Giants' starter Matt Cain, and some more MVP-Worthy batting from Cody Ross powered the Giants to a 3-0 victory, their second shut-out game in this Post Season.
A huge flotilla of watercraft from 2-man rafts, kayaks, up to yachts, Fire Boats and Ferry Boats covered McCovey Cove giving the game it's "Only in San Francisco" stamp...no splash hits though...it was after all a Pitching Duel!
