Kruk & Kuip: 'There was divine intervention all night long'
Kruk and Kuip break down the Game 7 victory, look back to Zito's start in Game 5, talk about Bruce Bochy's tactics, and the divine intervention throughout the game.
I've got a little excited there Buster Posey is okay. -- airborne is absolutely. Hillary enjoyed -- group or here it's such an amazing moments. The last couple earlier Bruins -- not things like this this is absolutely. The best we've seen. It -- lottery team. It really is extraordinary. Six elimination games did they go through it would do it. And a nine to nothing game. It starts -- have all her and made -- if we're not talking about little -- -- out there. Road I swear to god funeral and it popped club the way he was navigate. It looked like the first time I got off the ski blue. The Bob Hope it's good to I mean very it would -- -- -- I'm not gonna no so. Beloved. Now okay. -- about so there was extraordinary. Ways. How -- -- this game in the series I'll turn around loose. The Giants are down 31 they put the ball to Barry Zito -- Saint Louis one of the most remarkable things that I've ever seen him and I said after the game. It was my favorite game of all time. You guys. Saint Louis is a powerful. Powerful fan base and he turned back at tidal wave of emotion and expectation. And that great city of baseball. This game to be able to do what he did it and it depo was right there. The believe that they could come back and doing. The bell Brian the giants' clubhouse -- that game was let's get it back to San Francisco lets get it back to Ryan will also. Zito stood tall and he gave that. That it was running vocal song me six game losing money. There was big -- tonight -- relive anything outside of yards and a determination. And they win the best league. It's in super. But it's exactly what the quiet since the they are truly won't be good guys that love each other better to -- -- to there. -- a responsibility. For the those sensational event based on the planet and they -- didn't. As a veteran. Andre and there wasn't really any -- In any of the wins. The tour. They have to win it six elimination games. Every game in this in this series with the lopsided score with -- -- -- -- the Giants have a good. So -- that regard with the Georgia was they had to take the field didn't win that. And they had delayed after the fourth inning one every game in this series so. Obviously Marco Stuart Rose a richly deserving MVP could make the point for Zito you could make the point -- a song. I wanna talk about the manager for a moment and what he did there to get the last out of that. -- and you're ticketed if you would go to Romo to get this last -- they. If they bring out the TARP and have a long delay here but this undeterred by the way -- -- this -- -- get out Matt Holliday to get the last -- it's unbelievable really runs this team. Overall -- covenant in the ring -- the last. Well there's apparent just how the skipper was gonna try and win this game and they're being the point I'm with the score been nothing. He was good to go and use could use this formula of his bullpen the way to. Look this season. Javier Lopez closed. The one out that every close to a every relief pitcher wants to get -- didn't have. Mother nature. Never -- to have you -- back into the dugout Torre was protected from the rain he stood there zipped up that was -- So -- -- he goes signals of the bullpen -- that they -- closest thing out and Romo did did he didn't. Change his routine. Very deliberately hurt walking around the mound and got the first base side locked up delivered his pitch that you don't they acquired through. Hard going to be completely blistered. -- this thing is gonna be allowed to continue. I sit on the radio and I truly believe. Romo's gonna get one shot to close it out if they get past. Matt Holliday and he got on base that is not the game that Manuel doesn't fit the role of persevered. He gets -- pop out and there. San Francisco and all the Bay Area know the Giants fans around the country around the world for that matter. I'm so great result. What are you reasons we love this game -- the symbolism of this game is amazing how about the last out. That's Matt holiday at pops up DiMarco scooter row to win the Giants have been. You know the baseball gods. Have a way of just kind of make good things happen. And I here in the rain and did it sooner they need that you know the Giants for the that's going to Hawaii got to have some fun and have. Holliday popped up this scooter and that was terrific but not Mike made a good point but on defenses in -- point. What we thought there was divine intervention although I love resign or do you for the last out of the game but you go back to the big hit this game the -- back fifty years. What the seventh game of the World Series ended up a line drive right pat. Bobby Richardson -- the Giants fans would -- objectively beat by the Yankees tonight. A line drive that was you ride it deep post -- and we had no idea that the ball wouldn't go away. My dad what he put -- the -- that you can't explain that but that is prosecutor mention. -- -- The Giants rode for fifty years but. They just got even in the -- you. Looked incredible incredible with the baseball gods blew that ball away from the glove fifty years later.
