3. It really doesn’t look like it.
4. Not from this angle either.
6. Nope. The Cardinals were held scoreless in the bottom half of the inning, so if Ellis had been ruled safe, the game would have been over. But home plate ump Gerry Davis’ out call stood, and the Cards went on to win in the bottom of the 13th.
That’s hero-of-the-playoffs-so-far Carlos Beltran driving in Daniel Descalso. FYI: The game started at 8:37 p.m. EST and finished somewhere around 1:30 a.m. for a brisk 290 minute running time.
7. These gals know they got away with one.
8. The upside for the Dodgers: they have an immediate chance for revenge. Game 2 starts at 4 p.m. Saturday, or, in other words, in about ten minutes.
