Barry Zito - Game 4 - Must Win

Wanna revisit "torture 2010"? The San Francisco Giants are playing the Reds in a must win game to stay alive in the best of five series.  The Reds lead the series two games to one.  The Giants are battling and showing more pop in their bats than last night.

The question on every Giants fan's tortured mind is can Giants pitcher Barry Zito be money on the mound today and wipe his underachieving slate clean? So far he's manning-up and leading the way. But the Reds have some leading men on their roster too, and their testing Zito every step of the way.

I'm trying to listen to my beloved baseball team pull out what many say would be a miracle; a three game sweep of the Reds in Cincinnati.  Oh boy, it's the bottom of the third and Zito has been pulled due to early command issues (2 earned runs). If you don't know the "Zito Story," then you just wouldn't understand. In comes Kontos.

It's almost to the point where I just can't bare to watch.  Sure we're leading, but, but, but..........Oh Hell, it ain't like it's our last day on earth. Is it?

It would be Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum to the rescue, coming in to get the final out in the fourth, then limiting the Reds to one run on two hits with six strikeouts. Santiago Casilla closed out the ninth as the San Francisco Giants pitched and batted their way to an 8-3 win. WOW!  Let Timmy Smoke Dammit!
