The SF Giants came into Busch Stadium tonight and defeated the Cardinals 5 - 1 in 3:11. 8 innings of good baseball, the kind of baseball TV crews love to cover and 1/2 inning of bad baseball, the kind of baseball TV crews despise. In a 2 - 1 game at the start of the 9th inning a Cards reliever came in and walked the bases loaded. All 3 runners scored and the game was basically over. Let me amend that previous statement - all 3 runners scored and the great game was basically over. The feeling in the ballpark, the feeling in each dugout, and the feeling in the TV truck all changed directions in 3 batters. From good to bad, from best to worst, from happy to sad and on and on. At least I have 3 full days off to forget about this one. Next game/telecast for the St. Louis TV team - Tuesday. Good!!
