The walk-off was certainly a thrill but credit is due to Mike Krukow for bringing that moment to life.
It doesn’t get much better than listening to Krukow shout, “Ruf is on the move! Ruf is on the move! They’re gonna wave him in! Ruf is on the moooove and this game is over!”
San Francisco couldn’t have scripted a more exciting way for their first game of 2022 to end.
Brandon Belt had himself a game after entering the ballpark in a boat and captain’s hat then throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.
Belt hit a home run and went 2-for-4 with an RBI, walk and one strikeout.
Catcher Joey Bart hit his first major league home run to round out the festivities.
