SAN FRANCISCO -- Remember all the times everyone said Rich Hill's curveball, at times, resembled that of Barry Zito?
Well, tonight the two curveballing lefthanders will face each other for the first time.
See below the pitcher box for more on Zito and Hill, but I wanted to point out that last night's game was the third time that the Cubs have come from behind and won a game in the ninth inning (the others: May 6 vs. Washington and the Aramis Ramirez walkoff HR on June 29.)
Most teams don't win very many such games -- three of them, with a little less than a quarter of the season left, seems to me to be a significant number, showing the resilience of this team. Keep up the good work!
Spent the afternoon taking the ferry to Sausalito, having lunch, then returning for tonight's game.

I neglected to mention yesterday our SB Nation friends over at McCovey Chronicles. Oddly, a lot of their threads don't seem to have to do with current Giants events. Can't imagine why.
Today's game is on WGN. If you don't have access to WGN, try the Mediacenter.
