5. he and kim with a bomb off the very top of the fence in center field. ends up as double. one more inch and it would have been gone. 1 nothing texas. instead the rangers would not score. now in the bottom of the fifth if cj wilson leaves a fast ball off and edgar slams it out. aloha. and the giants take a 1 nothing lead. stayed tight for awhile. top of the sixth. cane gets out of a jam. 2 on. it's kim again and routine fly ball. cane would go 7 and two-thirds. scoreless innings. to the seventh. juan with a flare. scoring ross 2 nothing giants. fans on the way out tonight again chanting. bottom 8. the roof would cave in on the sex bullpen. 11 straight ballings. walked huff forcing the 3 nothing and another run walked in. strike again. scores 2 more. blow out
alert. follow was a blast to triple alley. 2 more score. 7 runs in the eighth for the giants as they roll 9 to nothing and take a two-o series lead. here's the skipper bruce. >> tight ball game.take you take all the runs you can get and these guys disa great job of finding a way to get on base either through walk or big hit. edgar got a huge hit in the rally. had a big night tonight and nice to have a cushion in the 9th. >> game 3 will be saturday night texas. jonathan sanchez against colby lewis and there's a chance this may be the final game at at&t park this season because the next 3 are in texas. there's no guarantee the rangers are going to prolong this series. the fans do in the want to go home. they want to stay at at&t park and keep partying all night long. we will have lots more. highlights in post
game. later on in sports. for now dan back to you. >> okay larry thanks very much. before you go larry pitching staff in the 8 after absolutely went cold for the rangers. now the giants have really tough pickle. 2 games up with 4 to play is very, not quite insurmountable but tough for the rangers. >> i think the rangers in a difficult situation. obviously 2-o. next 3 games at home but from a mental standpoint when you watch your bullpen completely implode that 8th inning it took them 27 minute to get the third and final out of that i think. that bullpen, the psyche of those young guys has to be very shakey at this point. so you wonder some people think that the magic of the giants have is just going to be insurmountable and might sweep the seevrments i thought that's kind of a reach but after watching what we saw ton tonight, i'm not sure. it might very well happen. we could be talking about a parade next week very shortly. >> let hope solar ri. see you later on in the hour. thanks
very much. >> all right. >> as suggested another huge night fun night for giants fans. amy is here with that part of the story. amy? >> dan it was so much fun. no torture in. unless you were at texas ranger fan. the crowd is jubilant. so excited. so proud of their team. listen to them chanting as they left the stadium tonight. about [ yelling] if chanting juan's name who was huge in the game and fans are proud. we heard the fans talking about how this team success is so unexpected. they feel like it kind of started coming out of nowhere and made for such an exciting ride. not only are they in the world series but they are up 2 to nothing. pichlt torture. it is fan takes ticket every game like this please, every game. so fantastic. i lost my voice.
>> and now they are heateded to texas and fans aren't even worried about it. they are so confident that they are going to go to texas and seal the deal. not even sad that they might not come back to san francisco. they would rather them go to texas, get the titles and bring it back home. fans tonight are partying as if this is the lasts game we'll see at at&t park this season. let's hope so. wouldn't that be great? reporting live from san franci francisco, amy abc 7 news. back to you. >> sure would, amy. thanks very much. >> come back to baseball a little later on in the hour but we'll move on to politics next. if the polls are accurate the race for governor is all but over. the california field poll shows 10 points now separate jerry brown from meg whitman. double digit lead analyst say is too much to overcome this close to the election. meg whitman was at republican headquarters in walnut creek tonight. latest in many campaign stops today. she was quite busy. mark tonight on this major shift in a race considered too close to call

did it tonight. i have gotten e-mails about it. he was nailed in. almost 21 straight scoreless innings in the post season. clubhouse very confident yet cautious as they pack for games 3, 4 and 5 in texas but the talk was about matt. >> we put our snevl a good situation. we are definitely going into their ballpark where they feel more comfortable. just like we are confident playing at home at the park. >> he watched the game. didn't you. pretty good. pretty dominant. he's a warrior. not a lot bothers him. he's our horse. >> always pitching. getting quality start and goes down and shuts the temperature down. done get much recognition obviously. but around here we all know. >> how about matt performance tonight. >> extraordinary. i was able to go out there and do exactly what we thought would he do. >> 20 runs in two games. craz
crazy, right? about anything happen especially in the post season and hopefully we can keep it going pichlt you have to wonder about the psyche of the rangers especially of the relief staff. here's washington on the bullpen woe in the eighth. >> i wanted to come in and get him but it didn't happen. then i brought in low to try to get ground ball to get out the inning. he come in and walk guys also. just couldn't find a strike zone. he got it done after giving up the triple to rowan. >> game 3. saturday. 3:57 p.m. jonathan against lewis. >> well i think the giants now have a da. they say how do they adjust to that. do a lot of things. sandoval, rowan and add as bat to the line up. warmer there. ball travel further so i it this is an
advantage going to the american league rules. >> last thing the rangers hear after going down 2. that's a wrap from at&t park. victorious giants. >> let me ask either of you. 2 games in going that game 3 with leading by 2 games. item not insurmountable lead but in the history of 7 game sears it's tough to overcome. >> it is very difficult when you drop the first 2 games. the advantage texas has is they have 3 in a row at home. so they have a chance to get some home cooking and get back on their feet and again recover mentally. >> take 2 out of 3 to bring the series back. so advantage giants but they are very cautious but they only need to win 1 game and then it's a series. >> mention at the top we may have seen the last game here at at&t park. could end in texas. >> thanks guys. mike and larry thanks so much. join us again in one hour on channel 7. thanks for
