We’ve got some bigger and better (read: non-baseball) posts in the works right now, but last night’s NLCS was won by the Giants in highly dramatic fashion. Namely, this sweet 3-R walk-off HR by Travis Ishikawa (video courtesy of MLB, obvs):
Yeah, Travis Ishikawa. He of 22 HRs in seven seasons and 881 ABs in the regular season. Baseball is a crazy game sometimes, and congrats to the Giants.
But that’s not what I’m here to talk about: Ishikawa hit his HR off of St. Louis’ Michael Wacha. And yet, as of 8:34 AM PST today, a quoted Google search of “Michael Wach-off” returns zero results.
Zero results. Zero. Not even from some drunk, depressed and sarcastic Cards fan on a message board. Missed opportunity, everyone. Missed opportunity.
