(That would be a great SF trivia question - what is the name of the T.Rex at the Academy of Sciences? - because I don't think the name is on the sign anywhere.)
Tim Hudson is 55 years old. First pitch, KC leadoff hitter Alcides Escobar launches a double that looked like it was going out. Oh no. The only end up scoring 1 in that inning.

The Giants cannot hit baseballs. If the Giants were your phone it would have no bars. They had 4 hits in the whole game, which as a team is only 4 more than I had personally, and I'm not playing in the World Series.
Michael Morse got a hit. He's about the only one that gets any hits anymore. The Giants did get 2 runs in the sixth but it never seemed like they were in it.
This is the scariest thing I've read all day: "Bochy plans to start Juan Perez in left field in Game 4 against left-hander Jason Vargas, but did not eliminate the possibility of going with Morse even with his lack of defensive playing time since he got hurt." This is the scariest shit since The Ring. If you think "we need help on offense," you do not think "JUAN PEREZ IS THAT HELP." Juan Perez is batting .125 in the postseason. Tim Hudson is batting .250, and he's not supposed to be able to hit.
Meanwhile, we're all just Waiting for Bumgarner. If they lose tonight it may already be too late for the Angel of Hickory NC to save them. It's very hard to win 3 games out of 4. It's much harder to win 3 games in a row, all of them elimination games.
If I could only think of some time in the past that's ever happened.
