OK, so the Midwest heat got to the boys. If only the games were 4½ innings instead of 9. Seems our starters were hitting a wall about the bottom of the fifth. Then the bullpen had to work twice as hard as it should, and they’re mostly kids still finding their way around the mound. Only Belisario has been around the block (a really sketchy block) and he doesn’t have the appearance of caring one way or another if he gets us out of jams. But, looking to the future, we have 62 games left and the first three of them are in the Bay with our first-place rivals. This could be it. This could be a make-or-break series. And to start it, we’ve got (maybe) Barney Fife’s grandson, Stephen, matching wits with Matt “Perfect Game” Cain. Maybe David can slay Goliath, it happened once before.
