Ryan Vogelsong retired David Freese and Daniel Descalso to begin the top of the second inning, but he paid dearly for issuing a two-out walk to Pete Kozma.

Chris Carpenter — yes, Chris Carpenter — followed by doubling into the left-center field gap to score Kozma and tie the game at 1-1.

Carpenter went 2-for-3 with a double during his start in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Nationals, so he now has as many hits (three) as teammate Yadier Molina this postseason. Oh, and as long as we’re having fun here, he also has as many hits Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson. Robinson Cano only has two hits. Baseball is weird.

    A rib in a jar in the bathroom? Strange guy, that Chris Carpenter.

    Yeah!? Well, I’ll have you know that Alex, Curtis and Robbie were probably taking notes. They may even study the film and stuff.

      The Giants are ahead 7-1 going into the ninth. It looks like they’re holding onto their lead. Go Giants!
