>> now that's the way to start of baseball season, right? oracle park. it was rocking today's. the giants ended up getting it the did they ever it was an up and down game that went into extra innings in a thrilling finish. >> and it up the way we like it. kylen mills live in a with
5:45 pm
some of the details. hey, kylen. >> hey, vicki and grant. this was a thriller to say the least. the sellout crowd here at oracle park got quite the show in today's home opener, the giants went down 5, 4, late in this game. they managed to come back and tied up 5, 5, with a home run in the bottom of the night. so we've got some free baseball here at oracle. what's to complain about that? the ending to this game ended up being thrilling in the bottom of the 10th outfielder tyro estrada hits a home run or rather that was the 9th inning home run. austin slater, the outfielders one hit a double in the bottom of the 10th darin ruf came around the bases. it you really couldn't tell if he is going to be throughout the plate. he just barely pulled it off. you guys, every single person in this, ballpark was on their feet. it was absolutely while people were going nuts, there pas so much energy here. so much fun. however, manager gabe kepler said after the game, he did not feel like the giants play their best baseball. he says he did feel like some guy stepped up when they needed to in certain
5:46 pm
situations like slater who were just talking about. but he wasn't happy with the team's overall play. he says they have a lot they can improve on. however, again, for fans, they got a show. and what else can you ask for in a w that's also important as well? >> yeah. last year's season kind of came out of nowhere. 107 wins for the giants and yeah ended in heartbreaking fashion. but the season as a whole was was certainly a success. does it feel like some of that same magic? some of that same energy may have carried over from last season to this season. watching the tv from afar kind of seems that way. >> jagr and it definitely feels that way. there is some extra excitement in build-up to the season. i think amongst the fans and amongst the players on this team because of how successful they were last season. however, manager gabe kepler also said before today's game that he doesn't want his team to focus on 108 winds or topping what they did last year. that's going to be very difficult to do. he wants his team just to focus on
5:47 pm
taking it one day at a time. one practice at a time, one game at a time. so i think mentor gabe kepler is having to try to keep his players living in the moment because of how successful they were last year. of course, they want to get back there. they want to get back to the playoffs in the postseason and hopefully go farther than they did last year, of course, and that heartbreaker losing to the dodgers in 5 games in the national league series of it. but, you know, i think there is a lot of excitement because of just how successful this team was last year. and they've kept a lot of the pieces in place, which i think it's huge for the fans, ok, speaking of pieces that are no longer in place right behind you. we see they're packing up everybody's con. >> when it was a sold out crowd, earlier. right? and it wasn't it just to to the rafters. >> yes, there was a sellout crowd here tonight. by the way, the giants have been selling out their home or their opening-day, their home opener, rather today happened full opening day. usually they're not hold on opening day, at least not in the last 10 years. however, they have been selling out their home opener since 1997. that's the
5:48 pm
last time the giants were able to get a sellout crowd. that was back at candlestick park in that he was coming off a 4th place finish. so that one may have been a tough one. however, this crowd hoy's comes out for opening date. such a special experience here at oracle park to kick off this game. first baseman brandon belt threw out the first pitch. he also made a lap of the ballpark boats with the captain sat on the pirates of the caribbean theme song playing in the background as he made his way around, saluting the crowd. so there was a lot of fun being had here at oracle park. opening day truly is special captain and the captain ha had the smell of garlic fries walking into the air to the that will appreciate that. you bring back some >> we'll let you go get a few for thanks, guys. all right. take it. meantime, the they kicked off the season in philly this afternoon, but things well, they didn't start out as 7th frankie. >> give up a home run to lead off batter. kyle schwarber to make it one nothing. the a's did pull within a run with an
5:49 pm
infield single from tony camp in the 7th inning to make it 65. but in the 8th inning, it was once again werber singling in bryson stott to help lead the phillies to a 95 victory. >> all right. well, they have many more games to go. it's a long season. so great for the giants and the ace can lift a battle. another day as we take a look outside here in san francisco. of course, the transamerica pyramid. a little more cloud cover, certainly cooler today as we turn our attention to the weekend cooler. but great baseball weather. we saw everybody festoon in all. walking down the embarcadero. what else are people going to go? and now i understand why you guys didn't want to talk about the a's game. but hey, there's another one coming tomorrow. >> they can win tomorrow as well. we're looking at a nice weekend. the winds are going to be the big story kind of whipping in spots out there, especially over the mountain tops lonoke county. yeah. very gusty out there looking toward the sfo right now. let's get you get away forecast. the
