fall classic game 3 preview

whodathunkit.  in game 3 of the 1953 world series, carl erskine struck out a record 14 batters (they happened to also be yankees, oh happy day) en route to a 3-2 victory.  the feat was immortalized here on a 1970 fleer world series card
in his other two starts that series, oisk struck out just a total of 2 batters in 5 innings of work.

here's hoping that a similar number of giants 'grab some bench' tonight.
