NLCS Prediction Post

In my previous prediction post, I accurately called three of the four series, including the lengths of two of them.  The other one I called a toss-up and went with my heart instead of my head.  Sue me.  I stopped there because I wanted to play video games which I felt at the time was the correct choice.  I still feel it was the correct choice.  Anyway, I didn’t think the Braves were going to win the World Series so this post isn’t going to look a whole lot different than it would have if the umpire had accurately called Buster Posey out before he scored the only run of Game 1.  (Sour grapes?  Nawww, not me.)

Anyway, Sanchez’s no-hitter was the first since Carlos Zambrano’s neutral site gem against the Houston Astros in September of last year.  He struck out a career high 11 hitters in the win and had some impressive defensive help from Aaron Rowand in the 9th inning.

It was the first no-hitter for the Giants since 1976.
