Giants Receive Championship Rings - Win in 9th

Baseball season just keeps getting historic for the San Francisco Giants. Yesterday they pull out an opening day win in the bottom of the 12th. Today, after opening with a championship ring ceremony, they thwarted the St. Louis Cardinals again with a Miguel Tejada double in the bottom of the 9th.

Both winning hits came on two outs, but tonight's just seemed extra special. Trailing 2-1 with Miguel coming up to bat, who would've thought they'd pull another one out of their hat. Miguel managed to hit a double on the ninth pitch of Cardinal Ryan Franklin.

It seemed the outfielders may have misjudged the depth of the fly ball as Rasmus got his hands on it in an attempt to make a basket catch but dropped it before falling to the track. The ball rolled away and the Giants took the lead and ballgame 3-2. The call on KNBR with the crowd screaming in ecstasy was electrifying. Did I mention that Miguel Tejada does not have a ring......Yet?
