Well, someone has to say it…

The game last night between the Dodgers, Giants, and the wind was amazing!

Consummate pinchers’ duel with a breezy chaser, I was impressed.

The wind denied the Dodgers at the end.

The wind certainly made it an adventure for both teams.

Have to say, Brandon Crawford saved that game for the Giants.

The Giants beat reporter for The Athletic, Andrew Baggarly, called it Candlestick South wind, sort of a karmic intervention by the weather Gods.

Winds gusted up to 50 mph. Hot dog wrappers did aerial acrobatics. A fine grit in the breeze made hitters back out of the box and rub their eyes. At one point, Dodgers right-hander Max Scherzer had a Stu Miller moment (if you’re a generation removed, Google it) and was nearly blown off the mound. There were fly balls that blew foul, fly balls that got knocked down and fly balls that wobbled in the wind. Even the pregame pyrotechnics that accompanied the National Anthem, which were shot off beyond the center field fence, appeared to shower sparks over second base.

No less an authority than Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrín, who began calling Dodgers games in 1959, said he had never witnessed windy conditions at Dodger Stadium that approached what the Dodgers and Giants played through Monday night. It was as if the breeze wrapped around Candlestick Point and whooshed straight across the state and funneled all the way down south into Chavez Ravine.

“Obviously, I was never on the field playing a game at Candlestick,” Crawford said. “So I’d imagine this is what it was like.”
