Tom Verducci: Zito delivers gem on big stage

ST. LOUIS -- When San Francisco reliever Santiago Casilla obtained the last out of the eighth inning in NLCS Game 5 last night -- officially closing the book on one of the most unexpected starting pitching lines in the postseason since Bob Wolcott for the 1995 Mariners, Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti walked over to Barry Zito in the dugout. Zito was busy writing in his notebook, taking time to jot down a few last observances to file away for the next time he might face St. Louis hitters. And then Righetti did not just shake his hand. He held him in a warm embrace.
