Well, I guess if players could pick when they got their hits, everyone would have 100 RBI. Of course, Hunter Pence did have 100 RBI during the regular season this year ... somehow. He sure wasn't hitting in the right spots in the playoffs so far -- he left five runners on base in Game 3 on Wednesday, and manager Bruce Bochy responded by moving him down to the #6 spot in the order.
In the second inning, there was success:
In the bottom of the second, Tim Lincecum got into a little trouble after a Pablo Sandoval error to open up the frame. Sandoval couldn't pick up a ball hit by Pete Kozma, setting up the sacrifice from Adam Wainwright. But Kozma was gunned down stealing, which was an important play because Wainwright ended up walking. After a Jon Jay fly ball, Lincecum walked Matt Carpenter as well, but Matt Holliday flied out to the warning track for the last out of the inning.
If you walk Adam Wainwright and Matt Carpenter to get to Holliday, it feels like the umpire should get to award a run to the other team just because. Instead, it's still 2-1 Cards through two innings.
