Remember that year? The Giants had Jason Schmidt throw a complete game shutout (against Josh Beckett no less) and San Francisco was off to the races.
Then the Giants were up 4-1 in Game 2… and they fell apart.
Juan Encanarcion homered to tie the game and Marquis Grissom’s error opened up the flood gates.
They went back to Florida and lost game 3 in extra innings even though they had the lead with 2 outs and 2 strikes in the bottom of the 10th… and of course lost game 4 when J. T. Snow was thrown out at home trying to tie the game.
Why am I bringing this up?
Have your guard up, Giants fans… these scenarios don’t end well.
