Tina Turner in the postseason. Now 1-22 in his career with RISP. He’s been brutal tonight for the Dodgers
Hell of a game

Fantastic pitching.

Mookie is 4-0 though. Still only 1 run for the Dodgers though. Crazy.

Both teams are tied at 109 wins too.

What a year and a story for both teams.
A lot of crazy pitching wind ups too

Quite the career resurgence

for end of game. Got an early wake up call tomorrow around 6:30
GNewGiants : 10/15/2021 12:19 am : link
Bellinger couldn’t place the ball any better. Roped it between two defenders.
GNewGiants : 10/15/2021 12:22 am : link
Horrible bunt by Taylor. Free out.
Damn I wanna finish this game.  
Jalapeno : 10/15/2021 12:25 am : link
But that alarm clock is laughing at me right now.

Buckle up!
Got to hang with it tonight at this point.  
St. Jimmy : 10/15/2021 12:30 am : link
Extra innings is another story. Already invested the time.
Turner botches  
GNewGiants : 10/15/2021 12:32 am : link
Easy grounder . 1 on, 1 out.

Winning run up.
Man what a terrible call  
Dave in PA : 10/15/2021 12:37 am : link
Not even close to crossing the plate. Not like Scherzer is going to blow that game anyway but yikes

Won’t be doing any playoff games in the near future.

Holy shit, it wasn’t even close.

Yeah. That was some call there.

Well, either way it won't keep me awake.
The umpiring is so awful in the sport

107 win season ends on a check swing call that isn't even close.

Yeah, there is no words to describe how the SFG must feel right now.

There are some close checked swing calls.  
Mad Mike : 10/15/2021 12:53 am : link
That wasn't one of them. Tough way to go out.
That was brutal.  
bceagle05 : 10/15/2021 1:01 am : link
I wonder if the ump just zoned out for a minute - no alert human being could possibly botch that one so badly.
The SF Giants got

Wow just saw the highlight...

Poor Wilmer.

from the "shot heard 'round the world" to the "bad call that nobody

was awake for". way to promote the game MLB.

Dodgers brass lucky they won, because not starting Urias was really stupid.
and we miss a possible Bobby Thomson homer  
gtt350 : 10/15/2021 9:18 am : link
on a check swing. Brutal
Don’t make a big deal over one pitch  
5BowlsSoon : 10/15/2021 10:32 am : link
The ump did Flores a service by putting him out of his misery a minute earlier. None of those guys were going to hit Mad Max, just like they couldn’t hit Jansen, Treinen, Urias ( save Ruf), Graterol, and Knebel.

And I was rooting for the Dodgers, but WTH did he see there!?
Is he related to the guy that blew the call on the no hit attempt by the pitcher in the Detroit game or something?
To the umps credit  
GNewGiants : 10/15/2021 12:17 pm : link
he came out and said after he saw the replay, he did not go. Not going to satisfy the Giants I am sure, but he said - he thought he went in real life, and doesnt have the luxury to look at replays.

He isnt the first nor will he be the last to make a mistake on check swings, but time and situation mattered there. And he should not be given a playoff series for the rest of this postseason though.

Said the play is not reviewable. I understand for the regular season you can’t review every play. But, for the post season you have to get it right.
5BowlsSoon : 10/15/2021 4:04 pm : link
Anybody interested to know this?

Wilmer Flores lifetime stats against Scherzer is….

0-17 with 8 Ks

Are you really going to bitch about that called strike? The dude was probably going to K anyhow….

I’m not rooting for LA either but sometimes umps make the incorrect call. They are human too.
