to help soften up the field and the balls. but now they are complaining and saying they are no longer having juiced balls. in the third inning andres torres who had an ependectomy hits it. and the pride and joy of sunnyvale takes the 15th homerun of the month. ross replaces torres in center- field gal down go boom. a triple and 32 hits and 19 runs in this game. but ross gets his revenge in the 6th. commander cody takes this one deep. a three run homerun to give the giants a lead. but things are just starting to get interesting. 9-7 in the 8th inning. brian wilson gives out a two run double to troy. it is tied again at 9. so let's go to the 10th inning where we see the very same matchup.
12:16 am
wilson a shot passed the shortstop. pat burrow is in left field. he is a train wreck there. carlos gonzalez races all the way from first base to score the game winner. 10-9 rockies knock the giants out of first place just like that. rockies also snapped the giants' 18 game streak of allowing three or fewer runs. giants play their final regular season road game tomorrow. juiced baseballs or no juiced baseballs. well, earlier today in san diego the padres and reds tied in the bottom of the 9th two out 3-3. and chaplain faces denorfia. that goes right into the glove of the third baseman. and races all the way home. padres beat the reds 4-3. san diego's 11 walkoff victory of the year. so that means san diego re- takes the lead by one-half game over the giants in the west. san francisco has just seven games left to play.
