Giants waiver-wire pickup Cody Ross' magical run continued this afternoon, as he plated San Francisco's first run of NLCS Game 3 with a clutch, two-out single.

Certainly, many longtime baseball fans were reminded of little-known Atlanta infielder Mark Lemke's monster postseasons in 1991 and 1992 (though Ross is a better hitter than Lemke with far more power).

Another major difference between 1992 and today: Countless Twitter-users can now wax philosophically on all things Cody Ross in real time:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
