My old HS b-ball coach, an italian guy who played ball with Curt Flood and Frank Robinson back in the day in Oaktown, had a favorite expression: “When you got em by the balls, you gotta squeeze.”
This is the squeeze game. We beat Sanchez or their pen, Tigers are down 3-0 and basically done. If they can rebound, they’ll be fired up and pointing toward another Verlander start game 5 monday when (in their dreams) they could go ahead 3-2. Imo saturday is the pivotal game. SF had best squeeze the life out of them, now.
