Giants 0, Dodgers 1 (10)

On August 13, 2006, in General, by Neil Stevens

What a great game. Greg Maddux: 8 innings, 0 runs, 2 hits, 68 pitches. Jason Schmidt: 8 innings, 0 runs, 5 hits, 115 pitches. On top of some classic pitching, the old guys brought some defense: Maddux and Barry Bonds each made an inning-saving catch that reminded us all of why they both won so many Gold Gloves.

The Dodgers got it all done late though. In the top of the 10th, Takashi Saito walked Bonds, but kept the pinch runner from making it to second before retiring the side. Then in the bottom the first batter, rookie catcher Russell Martin, parked a hanging curve right in the bleachers. Game over. Sweep.

I picked the right game to watch in its entirety.
