Hey, maybe Trevor Rosenthal should start in the World Series if the St. Louis Cardinals get there.
Because in the sixth inning, he looked like their best pitcher. Rosenthal routinely throws 98 miles an hour, and so here's how the top of the sixth went:
Brandon Belt struck out looking.
Gregor Blanco struck out swinging.
Brandon Crawford struck out looking.
It was the second time in Game 5 that three Giants struck out, and that made 10 K's in the game for the Giants in only six innings.
Fat lot of good it's done the Cardinals. Barry Zito's still got a shutout through six innings after zipping through the Cardinals with ease, for his second straight 1-2-3 frame. Zito's thrown only 80 pitches, and figures to come out for the seventh unless he's bumped for a pinch hitter in the top of the seventh.
After six innings, the Giants are still leading the Cardinals in this must-win game, 4-0.
