The Giants’ Ryan Vogelsong’s the game winner, and struck out nine St. Louis Cardinals batters in route to a 6 to 1 win at AT&T Park. Chris Carpenter for the Cards was the losing pitcher. Now, in a rematch of Game 3, won by the Cardinals, San Francisco’s Matt Cain and St. Louis’ Kyle Lohse are set to pitch on Monday.
Seldom does a team and or a person get a second chance. Matt Cain’s got his.
But for San Francisco / Oakland Bay Area fans who saw the Oakland A’s force a final Game 5 at home, only to lose, there has to be a feeling of de ja vu.
