5:25 pm
for junas. and then, tommy edmond will get his revenge. literally, one strike away. instead, edmonds ends his outing. two runs. and the story for the giants was, you know, the offense being ice cold in this one. swing and miss. he is out. 7th inning. bases loaded for brandon belt. only one out in the inning. this was a chance to get some back and they get nothing and will not like it. double play ball. later in the inning, giants down 3-nothing. deep shot to left. darren can't get it off the wall. paul goldschmidt. >> the giants lose 4-nothing. they snap their six-game winning streak. the golden state warriors are head back to the western conference finals. it will be the sixth time steph, clay, ask draymond reached this point. every time prior, they advance to the nba finals and this one
5:26 pm

5:27 pm
game since lair rrry smith in 1. aen earned himself a new nickname by clay. >> he was he was really just a freak out there, and kind of has elastic arms he can just stretch. >> i think what is more impressive than the 22 words is i think i ran him 17-straight minutes and i kept looking at him because after the efficient five, he looked like he was dying. then the next two, looked worse. and every minute after that, i was
