The San Francisco Giants battled back from what would've been a catastrophic loss at the hands of the Atlanta Braves on Sunday afternoon and now head into Game 4 of the National League Division Series with a two-games-to-one advantage.
Clutch at-bats from Travis Ishikawa, Freddy Sanchez, Aubrey Huff, Buster Posey and a major assist from Atlanta second baseman Brooks Conrad made up for another rough trip to the bump for Sergio Romo.
The increasingly suspect big-spot, late-inning option gave up a sickening home run to journeyman pinch-hitter Eric Hinske in the bottom of the eighth inning and almost blew a Giant starter's gem for the second consecutive NLDS game.
Thankfully, Conrad got the last crack at the postseason-goat pinata and broke that sucker wide open with his fourth "erruh" (to quote Dick Stockton) in three games. Yet another E-4 accounted for San Francisco's winning margin, which makes it 2-for-2 in the five-gamer thus far.
Consequently, you won't find this comeback on the list of greatest playoff moments in franchise history. The rebound from Hinske's crushing blow was another magical moment in 2010, but the fact that it required help keeps it off this illustrious list.
As I think you will agree...
