That’s what the bottom of the ninth was for the Giants in LA today. They had shut down the Dodgers for eight innings, leading 3–0. I watched it from the seventh on. And in the bottom of the ninth, the Giants: gave up a single, allowed a walk, struck out a batter (Alex Cora), allowed a walk, allowed a walk (3–1), gave up a single on an error (getting no outs from what could have been a double play) (3–2), gave up a single (3–3), gave up a home run (3–7). This in a game that they had to win to keep their postseason hopes alive—now they can only make it if the Astros lose tomorrow and the Giants win.
