coast you happen to be on. and the giants are back east looking for another win in their series with the nationals. abe lincoln. good old, honest abe going to step this way. here's you can see him. he was on hand at nationals ballpark to greet some giants fans before the game. good way to start things off. last night the giants got going early and same thing today. 2 on 2 out for brandon crawford's going to look like the break. and crawford lake park has got a base to left field coming. that would send aaron rough homes. and so the giants get on the board in the first inning. we got to the 5th now big inning for the giants. this one was they added 3 runs before jock peterson comes to the plate. he hits one through the left-field gap. austin slater scores. and that kept 5 answered run. 5 unanswered runs skews me for the giants. but hey, let's give shout out to the pictures. starter alex wood pitched 5 solid innings. the bullpen held up their end and then come the look of all comes in for the sabres. 3 one ground gets the groundout to win it. final score. 5, 2,

giants, san francisco's bullpen. hey, it has the best and baseball. 1, 7, with some fans enjoying a beautiful day at the coliseum today as well as the a's hosting the rangers. now, this one that was scoreless through the 8th inning and that's where we'll start to on 2 out of ranger brad miller. he drives a single into left field. one hunter scores. now another comes in to score but is tagged out at home by sean murphy. looks like maybe pinch runner eli white got a hand on the base. so this was going under official review that and it ends up getting over turned they call white safe at home and they had a run for texas citing a legal block at the plate by murphy. you can see manager mark kotsay does not like it. he would end up getting ejected and is go on to lose 2. nothing. it's a controversial call. there is the is dropped their second game in a row to the rangers after the game said his
8:53 pm
frustration got the best of him. they still isn't sure about that. call. >> maybe i don't fully understand the rule. but i didn't feel murph was was completely blocking the plate. i thought it was set up for a throw from a left fielder. which is going to take him into the end of the plate. once he received the ball, he was the head of the runner. and for me, it's it's a big momentum. turning the game. even though they had scored. had it on a second >> and then continuing and >yet tough way for the news to lose that the lost anyway. it it was one. nothing regardless. yeah. when we're stuff like that happens, it's just a of a way for things to. and yeah, no one's ever happy when it's like controversial calls. i mean, it makes it exciting like you're out early or but liked. of really, really well. yes. so they're kind of over performing what we expected this season. so you got to be happy with that. all right. we'll take it. ok, thanks, guys. we're back.
