Dodgers and Giants Pennant Playoff? Angels swept out of contention. But CA baseball looking good.

The San Francisco Giants won a marathon 18 inning game, the longest ever play-off game in Major League Baseball history, on Brandon Belt’s top-of-the-18th home run over this weekend off the Washington Nationals in the National League Playoff series, to take a 2-0 lead, with just one win in the three games left necessary to lift the Giants into the National League pennant battle and a chance for a birth in the World Series.  In the meantime, the Los Angeles Dodgers, who are split 1-1 with the St. Louis Cardinals, are moving to St. Louis for the next two games, and have a chance to get into the National League pennant play-off but only by beating the Cardinals at home, which will be a tall order.  California’s third team in the playoffs, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, honored their fans by making the playoffs but were swept out of contention this weekend by losing three games in a row to the Kansas City Royals.

Nevertheless, Ododgers-giants12ctober has been a pretty good baseball month for California and we all can agree that a Giants/Dodgers National league pennant series would be awesome!

    I’ve hated the Dodgers ever since the Giants moved to Seals’ Stadium! Just like the Rams and Lakers, don’t care if they EVER win a game again!

  2. Dodger’s 1-2; Giants 2-1.
    Angels fall to The Cleveland Curse (1954) – have best record in regular season, and get swept post-season.

    I should have mentioned that the Oakland A’s made it to the Wild Card game, but lost. That means 4 of California’s 5 MLB teams made it to the playoffs, only the San Diego Padres did not make the playoffs – the team whose Petco Park I visit most!
