Texas has won their last three games - each on a walk-off home run. ... The record for consecutive walk-off wins is five, set by the Astros (July 19-23, 1986).

So nice to see Papelbon blow a save for a different team. And it was to the Giants, who have been struggling.

That was amazing. God, I love this team.

Wow. I saw the score 7-1 on the crawl and thought it was a final. Then came home to see the W. Great team!

The M's manager called for the wrong pitcher out of the bullpen. He tried to correct it, but had to bring in the left-hander. That turned Victorino around for the 2rbi hit. It was interesting to watch. I guess the rule is that calling for the pitcher (raising your left hand) constitutes a change and that he has to pitch?
