Giants/Mets Notes

October 5, 2016

The following will illustrate a healthy respect for the game tonight as I will disperse some slightly offbeat notes, you are not likely to find any other place.

Certainly it is worth noting that the two incredible Giants’ wins in third games of unscheduled best of three playoffs for the N.L. pennant vs first the Brooklyn and then L.A. Dodgers occurred exactly 11 years apart on a Wednesday.

Additionally, the Giants victory in this level game vs the Pittsburgh Pirates en route to an eventual third straight even year title, also was on a Wednesday at Pittsburgh vs the Pirates in 2014. The Giants also staved off elimination in a win at Cincinnati in game 4 of the division series, en route to the 2012 title. I do recall the eventual 1971 World champion Pittsburgh Pirates “Wednesdaying” the Giants out of the 1971 NLCS in a Wednesday game four.

Meanwhile their opponent in tonight’s game, the New York Mets are in a post-season or extra game entity for the 20th time. None of the previous 19 entities, one an unscheduled one game playoff win at Cincinnati in 1999, resulted in the Mets not winning at least one game in that entity and/or series.
