RAMBLIN’ RECK: Diamond deliveries made many believers

TERRE HAUTE — As of midnight Sunday, the 2012 major league baseball season came to an end and the San Francisco Giants reign as World Series champs.

The Giants swept the Detroit Tigers in the Series but got off to a rough start in postseason action.

They lost twice to Cincinnati and had to beat the Reds three straight in their own park to advance to the National League Championship Series.

They then trailed St. Louis 3-1 but again rallied to win. By this time, they’d made believers of lots of folks and made many more when they beat Justin Verlander in the first game of the Series.

The Giants now have won six straight elimination games in postseason play and are one of three NL teams to win two Series in two or three years. Cincinnati did it in 1975-76 and the Los Angeles Dodgers prevailed in 1963-65.

The Giants also tied a Series mark of four games for a pitcher to drive in a run. And they now have won seven straight postseason games — that mark will carry over until next year when they figure to be in the postseason again.

As it were, TV ratings for the 2012 Series games were not very good with competition from pro and college football.

Warriors win again — Casey was the winner in the Class 2A volleyball regional played at Lawrenceville last week, winning its second regional title in three years.

The Warriors beat Robinson 2-0 and top seed Newton 2-1 to earn their trip to the Cumberland Sectional. They face Carlinville tonight, and Pana takes on Vandalia.

Casey’s football team also will go against Carlinville in the second round of the Class 2A playoffs. That game will be played at 2 p.m. Saturday at Casey.

Indiana teams will compete in state-championship action this week.

In Class A, it will be Loogootee vs. Cowan while Wapahani plays Providence in Class 2A.

In 3A, it’ll be Yorktown and Chatard and Carmel takes on Avon in Class 4A.

  • SPT-HB0731-ColtsCamp-Fleener-206.jpg Colts, Fleener focused on situational football

    One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes.
    The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field and the Colts’ 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
