Yes!! We are a SF-based company!  Yes!! We are SF Giants fans!

Yes!! They did it AGAIN!!!!bumgarner

The odds were against them… worst stats of any other team entering the play-off season… key veteran players out with injuries…. inexperienced  rookie players in their first world series….  It was going to take a few miracles…

Last night’s game had fans on edge throughout the night, but many were a lot more confident going into the fifth inning. Madison Bumgarner came back on just two days rest after Sunday’s 117 pitch complete game shutout. The 25-year-old relieved Jeremy Affedlt and got the final 15 outs throwing another 68 pitches.

“I’m amazed at what these guys did and the fact we won three times in five years, it’s not that easy, but, when you have a group of warriors like we have, they continue to just amaze you,” said Giants manager Bruce Bochy.

Bochy is now the 10th manager to win three World Series titles.
