Take Me Out to the Ballgame
Bonds is coming up again.
After Bonds makes out, tons of people leave, assuming he won't bat again. Apparently they don't realize that the Giants need just one baserunner to guarantee him another AB. It was a completely dead crowd until half of it was gone and the Giants began their comeback.
On the bright side, the people in my row left.
Kevin Correia leaves the game.
In comes Steve Kline.
Mark Sweeney pinch hitting for SF.
Hudson is still carrying a shutout through 8.
And more people go home.
Next out of the bullpen: Brad Hennessey.
Meanwhile, Hudson's pitch count is finally getting up there.
Unlike most of the Giants fans, Lou Seal has not given up and gone home.
With Hudson struggling to start the 9th, Roger McDowell visited.
And then there's the cheater.
Backwards K. Very nice.
It's the bottom of the 9th, but the game is only 2:20 old.
They'll give Hudson one more chance.
After an Aurelia RBI single, that's it for Hudson.
Bob Wickman on to close. They actually played
but it really wasn't the same. No one seemed to care.

Bengie Molina on to pinch hit.
He got the job done! 4-4 tie in the 9th.
Only to have Fred Lewis take a called strike 3 to send us to extra innings.
