Here come the Giants.
Cody Ross entered this NLCS Game 5 with an incredible .357/.438/.893 batting line, four home runs and eight RBI over 28 postseason at-bats. So you can probably guess what he did in his fourth-inning plate appearance against Phillies starter Roy Halladay. (Hint: it was, uh, pretty clutch).
Ross ripped a run-scoring double into right field, scoring fellow Giants outfielder Pat Burrell and pushing the Giants one run closer to the Phillies.
Tim Lincecum then retired the opposition in order in the top of the fifth, Halladay killed a threat in the bottom of the frame and Philadelphia is clinging to a 3-2 lead as this one heads to the sixth.
It’s raining again in San Francisco, a bit harder than before, but few fans have left their seats at AT&T Park.
Halladay is up to 82 pitches and there has been movement in the Phillies’ bullpen. If he doesn’t reach 100-plus pitches, though, it would go as a major shock.
