San Diego 4, San Francisco 4 (top of the 11th)

I’ve waited patiently all season to see the Sultan Of Sloth face the Sultan Of Surly, and while the latter came out on top (shown hitting a first inning, 2-run HR), there’s still plenty of time for Manny Alexander to steal the spotlight.

All he has to do is lend his car to someone.

(UPDATE : Giants 5, Padres 4. After retiring Bonds, Rudy Seanz gave up a triple to Ray Durham. Two intentional walks later, Josh Barfield went to the plate with Mark Sweeney’s chopper, and Durham beat the throw).

The PCL semi-final between Round Rock and Nashville is headed for a deciding 5th game on Sunday. Earlier today, the Sounds won Game 4, 2-0, as Justin Lehr and Luther Hackman combined on a 4 hit shutout of the Astros’ Triple A affiliate. Nashville 2B Brent Abernathy was 3 for 4, and connected for a 2nd inning solo HR off Round Rock’s Phillip Barzilla.
