His team comes home to Kansas City for game 6 of the World Series, he's so magic he can walk 5 and feel no damage.
The Royal bats come to relentless life and score again and again in a merciless 2nd inning that sends Jake Peavy to the showers and continues to batter Yusmeiro Petit until 7 runs have crossed the plate and it's all over.
All the Giants can do is watch Ventura pitch.
Which he does for 7 scoreless innings, bringing his career total to 198.1.
How amazing would that feel?
There's something going on this year that I haven't felt in a really long time.
Those guys in blue all shaking hands and high-fiving after the game could be another bunch of guys in blue doing the same thing.
Pretty soon, too.
What a Series.
Game 7 tonight.
