Cahill had been mowing down the Giants all night - 6 innings of 1 hit ball, just 83 pitches total.
so in the top of the 7th with 2 outs, runnner on 3rd (who got to 3rd on a "passed" ball only because home plate umpire John Tumpane is a freakin idiot who missed the clear foul ball that glanced off the bat AND HIT HIM IN THE LEG )Geren yanks Cahill for pinch hitter Matsui.

except theres a pitching change and Matsui is then pulled to be pinch hit for as well. soGeren sacrifices his best pitcher and most powerful hitter to bring up ....CONNOR JACKSON! who promptly grounds out to end the inning.

he did the Giants a huge favor bc we had no chance of hitting Cahill.
pure genius


and then he IBB huff to get to posey, wtf?

i was dyin when i saw this move!
intentially walk the guy who hasnt been able to hit a ball off a tee all year, to get to the best hitter on the team, whos been hitting over 400 for the past 2 weeks or so. :-?

its not even like Wuertz has shown a big platoon split - hes domintaed lefties this year!

Joe Paterson got his first Major league save, having to get 2 outs in a 8-7 game with the bases loaded. Hernandez walked 3 without getting a single out, in his best impression of a 2010 Diamondbacks reliever.
