Painful moments in San Francisco, updated again: Brandon Crawford hits walk-off home run (Video)


The Colorado Rockies went to San Francisco this weekend to take on the Giants. They left with the usual close calls and fresh memories of heartbreaking losses.

The truth is, the Rockies played well this weekend. They took tough at-bats against the top three starting pitchers in San Francisco’s rotation and their bullpen was exemplary. To win a game 1-0 and have a legit shot to win the other two is not such a bad thing for this team, especially in the early stages of the season such as it is.

Of course the two losses had to come in heartbreaking fashion. We now have two more moments to add to the extensive archives of painful moments in San Francisco. On Friday it was Madison Bumgarner‘s grand slam off Jorge De La Rosa. On Sunday it was Brandon Crawford‘s walk-off home run in the 10th inning.

Please note the following about Crawford’s moment of glory:
