Giants Beat Cardinals on Walk Off Throwing Error; Steve Perry Presumably Enjoyed It

By Mike Cardillo

The San Francisco Giants took a 2-1 lead in the NLCS vs. the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday thanks to small-ball powered 5-4 walk-off win in 10 innings. Cardinals reliever Randy Choate walked Brandon Crawford to start the bottom of the 10th. Juan Perez followed with a single. Gregor Blanco squared up to sacrifice bunt, however Choate threw the ball into right field allowing Crawford to score.

Somewhere in Kansas City, a man named Ned smiles.

Although the game went 10 innings, it only took about three hours and 10 minutes to finish — a welcome relief this postseason.

Also smiling? Former Journey frontman Steve Perry, who is apparently a big Giants fan. The 1980s icon attended the game at AT&T Park Tuesday and sang along lip synced the band’s famed power ballad, Don’t Stop Believin’ during the eighth inning. The song probably inspired the Giants during the decisive 10th inning as they presumably held on to that feeeeeeling.

That may or may not be true, but this photo is too good to pass up:
