In true Giants fashion, an unlikely hero stepped up to the plate to deliver an exhilarating win.
Miguel Tejada was that unlikely hero.
Stop laughing. I’m dead serious.
In the bottom of the ninth, Cardinals closer Ryan Franklin was in to save the game. The Giants were down by one. There were two out, Buster Posey and Brandon Belt (who came in to pinch run for Pat Burrell) were on base.
It was up to Miguel Tejada to be the hero.
Stop that. I can still hear laughter.
Tejada delivered on what was eventually ruled a double to Colby Rasmus.
What a fitting way to win on a night where they received their rings.
No, seriously. Stop laughing. Miguel Tejada won the game. With a little help from Colby Rasmus. But Tejada was the hero.
