>> joe: talking about the pitch with the home plate umpire derryl cousins, as you look at the breakdown this season. bases empty. it was a breakdown, .214 average for jimmy rollins. better with runners in scoring position. in this case, the runner at first, on the move, two outs. strikeout ends the inning. wilson comes in, gives up a hit. jimmy rollins strikes out for the third consecutive time. and we go to the ninth inning. game one, nlcs. 4-3, san francisco.

7:34 pm
best sports complex in the country with the facilities right here. sixers play down the street as well. and it doesn't get any better than these two venues. baseball and football. the count goes to 0-2. brad lidge takes over. he is a closer for the phillies. he has been on a roll since the 1st of august. up and down before that. that's high. ball one. 1-2. 18 of 19 in save opportunities. e.r.a. of 0.7. trying to keep it a one-run game, to play the ninth. juan uribe at the plate. he's 1-3. 1-4, as he strikes out to start the ninth.
7:35 pm
>> tim: that slider that made brad lidge so valuable to the phillies two years ago. right back with it. duane kuiper announcer nicknamed the giant osfence "torture." >> joe: fontenot with a line drive to center. gets with a base hit and one out in the ninth. his first hit. >> you can see what the san francisco giant fans have been going through all year think. played a lot of tight ballgame, one-run games. the phillies have the best record in baseball for one-run game. losing here tonight. >> joe: here is a guy tonight has become public enemy number one. cody ross. they boo him as he digs in. he has two home runs. that was against halladay. the two-out rbi by burrell and uribe. uribe, rbi base hit up the middle, the
7:36 pm
difference in the game right now. that made it 4-1. two-run shot in the bottom of the sixth by werth. made it 4-3 and that's where we are here in the ninth. fontenot, one out hit. there he goes. somehow that ball missed ross. stolen base for fontenot. he is at second with one out. i don't know "a," how the ball missed ross; or "b," how ruiz caught it. >> tim: we were just talking the last half inning when wilson was in the game how most short relievers don't have move to first base. fontenot knew that. had a tremendous jump to second base and stole a base easily. >> joe: fontenot, second steal all year. this is a giants team -- ross comes up, empty, strike two --
7:37 pm
last in the stolen base department in the regular season with only 55 steals. >> tim: one every three games. >> joe: they don't run. >> no. >> joe: they do here. and they hit. gives the giants alittle breathing room here in the ninth. what a night ross could have. if he comes through here. ball two. 2-2. duane kuiper does television for giants baseball. called their baseball "torture." it hasn't been easy but a fun rise for giants and their fans through september, winning the west on the last day. two games over the padres and beating the braves in four games in the division series. 2-2 pitch. i can't think of anybody who does a better job, by the way, than kuiper.
7:38 pm
>> tim: wonderful. wonderful. tremendously popular in the bay area. by the way, a wild pitch is not out of the realm of possibility here. lidge could be effective. the slider has to be down. and ruiz has to be good. >> joe: there it is. smothers it. ball three. a full count with ishikawa on deck. >> joe: bottom of the ninth inning. bottom part of the line-up. ibanez, ruiz. first two out. ross just throws the bat at it. that ball is out of play. as ruiz does all he can.
7:39 pm
>> tim: cody ross has thrown his bat at two sliders tonight. one from roy halladay, where the bat went all the way down first base and that slider from lidge. i think he is going to see another slider right here. >> joe: here is the 3-2. two on, with one out. ross is on base for the third time tonight. coming in to this series, charlie manuel made one switch to his roster. he took greg dobbs off the active list from years past. a very good left-handed pinch hitter and added kendrick as the long reliever to take the spot of blanton who is
7:40 pm
scheduled to start game four, as it is now. the giants toyed with adding a third left-hander in the bullpen. they did not do it. that pitch was inside. the crowd gets on the home plate umpire. ishikawa back for two on, one out. >> joe: out in front of that pitch. strike one on issue -- on ishikawa. phillies will need a pinch hitter for the third spot in the bottom of this ninth. the bench with schneider, valdez, francisco, sweeney. no dobbs.
7:41 pm
that hit ishikawa. that will load them up. hit-by-pitch follows a single and a walk. the bases are loaded with one out for andres torres. >> tim: had this ball not hit ishikawa, you could make a case that the ball would have gotten by ruiz. travis appears to be all right. hit him on the left foot instep. lidge can really be wild with that slider. that has been his history. >> joe: while they meet on the mound with rich dubes the pitching coach. look to tomorrow night. if you don't much about sanchez, he has the ability to shut down any line-up.
7:42 pm
he has been so good. struck out 11 in the division series. there is oswalt who had a hiccup in game two of the division series and will get the ball for philadelphia. >> joe: bases loaded. one out for andres torres. infield comes in. strike one. >> tim: the reason for that, torres, as we said, has 26 stolen bases. double play depth you won't double him up. the infield is forced to move in, halfway in the middle. rollins and utley. where they could get a double play. it would have to be a ball right over the bag for jimmy rollins. >> joe: strike two. torres who has a flare hit, one for four. trying to give brian wilson of the giants a little breathing room here in the ninth.
7:43 pm
>> joe: torres went around. that's a big strike-out for lidge. two away. >> tim: going back to the slider. fine play by ruiz to make the block. first base is occupied with less than two outs. the batter is automatically out. but had he not blocked it, a run would have scored. >> joe: now the bases are loaded with two outs. freddy sanchez, won the batting title in 2006. for the pirates stands
7:44 pm
in. pablo sandoval in the on deck circle. that slider misses. the interesting thing about sandoval being in the on-deck circle, is that is the pitcher's spot. >> tim: but if he has a chance to hit, they would have scored another run. >> joe: the pitcher is the closer wilson. strike on the inside corner. one ball, one strike. >> tim: you wouldn't trade a run for a closer? >> joe: no. >> tim: no? okay. >> joe: here is the 1-1. ball two.
7:45 pm
sanchez tonight 0-4. lidge in trouble. trying to keep it a one-run game. 2-1 pitch. flyball to center, sends victorino back. inning over. lidge made it interesting. now it's wilson back to the hill. ibanez 0-1 against him in his career. ruiz. then a pinch hitter for the phillies. down by one. ♪ if you have gout, high uric acid can lead to more attacks. ♪ to help reduce attacks, lower your uric acid. uloric lowers uric acid levels in adults with gout. it's not for the treatment of high uric acid without a history of gout. uloric reduces uric acid to

7:49 pm
one. >> tim: we asked charlie manuel how his team handled brian wilson. he says in the past, we've had good luck against him. one of those good luck games was back on april 28 with brian wilson blew a save. a game started by tim lincecum. >> joe: outside again. 2-1. staying away from ibanez. >> tim: if you make the mistake away, it's a single. if you make a mistake inside, it could be a home run. >> right through it. 2-2. jose contreras getting loose in case the phillies tie this game. lidge is due third, bottom of the ninth. so his night is finished.
7:50 pm
>> joe: the 2-2. ball three. >> tim: five fastballs, toward the outside corner. if you are ibanez, there is no reason to look inside. just look away. >> joe: still full.
7:51 pm
>> joe: got him looking, one away. 96-mile-per-hour fastball. one out. >> tim: eight straight pitches toward the outside corner. that hit. that misses. 2-1. 2-2. full count. full count. right there. >> joe: perfect pitch from wilson for out
7:52 pm
number one. ruiz. strike one. carlos has homered, he's 1-3. he has reached base now in 24 straight post-season games. thanks to his third inning home run which tied the game. ball one. >> joe: one out, nobody on. ruiz is grazed by the pitch. he will head down to first base. didn't get much of him.
7:53 pm
but just got enough of ruiz to put the tying run on. just off the bottom of the left-hand. >> tim: once the hitter makes a strike like that, there is no getting out of the way with the upper part of the body. as you can see, buster posey. buster closing his eyes when that ball made contact. bochy complaining about it, but he was definitely hit by the pitch. >> joe: now ross gload. gload is batting for lidge. pitched one scoreless inning. ball one. 15 out of 56 with
7:54 pm
three pinch-hit home runs for philadelphia. you saw the one walkoff in his career. that was regular season in 2009. 1-0. 2-0. >> tim: that is the tenth straight pitch outside for left-handed batters this inning. ibanez and the first two to gload. wilson has proven he is not going to come inside to left-handed batters. >> joe: the first nlcs at-bat for gload. sta takes a strike. 2-1. ibanez struck out. grazed by a pitch. tying one at first with one away. that's in to
7:55 pm
right-field, but foul. just got out in front. it's 2-2. >> tim: he got out front because the cutter from wilson cuts over the center of the plate. gload fouls it off. he wanted this one outside. but didn't get it there. middle of the plate. gload hit it hard. but a foul ball. >> joe: the 2-2. struck him out, two gone. 96 again. this time he got gload. >> tim: posey wanted it up. he got it up. >> joe: so the phillies in game one are down to their final out. shane victorino, who is hitless tonight.
7:56 pm
now a pimple runner comes in the game -- now a pinch runner will come to the game. >> tim: charlie manuel waited until there were two outs to make a pinch-runner but now you almost have to, to go to valdez who is a step or two ahead of ruiz. >> joe: that is the tying run. ball one, outside. victorino had 18 home runs in the regular season. >> joe: ball two.
7:57 pm
>> tim: once again, everything away to the left-hander. >> joe: the ball really jumps to right in this park. again, away. ball three. 3-0. wind is not a factor. it has died down, almost completely. the throw to first. he gets back. >> joe: victorino is taking. he takes strike one.
7:58 pm
just in case you're wondering, valdez stole seven. was not caught in the regular season. the runner at first. 3-1 pitch. full count. the runner, wilson valdez the tying run at first will go with the next pitch. >> joe: there he goes. and a strike-out ends tonight. game one belongs to the giants. brian wilson records four outs here tonight. all four were
7:59 pm
strike-out. >> tim: all four with fastballs. he did not deviate. trying to go away, away, away, get the ball up to victorino. perfect pitch to ibanez for the first out. what a job of pitching by brian wilson. >> joe: in a game that was started by a couple of big game pitchers, san francisco got the bigger game from their big guy. all 163 pounds, tim lincecum was good here tonight. he gets a win. >> tim: here are the six pitches to victorino. he misses with the first three outside. then a strike. then a foul ball. a payoff paid off. >> joe: so the underdog giants here on the road get the victory. final of 4-3.
8:00 pm
lincecum against halladay. we will give you our traveler's plays of the game. it's cody ross. out of the number eight spot. went deep in the third. went deep in the fifth. with that man, is ken rosenthal. ken? >> ken: thank you, joe. roy halladay pitched a no-hitter in his last start and retired the first seven tonight. what were you thinking when you stepped in the box in the third inning? >> player: just trying to get a pitch to square off and get good wood on it and get a base hit. luckily, i got a pitch i could handle and got some wood on it and got up in the air. >> ken: second home run? >> player: same thing. it's tough enough to get roy one time. going up there and trying to create something. got a pitch i could handle and same deal. >> ken: you spent most of the season with the marlins and you came to the giants on a
8:01 pm
waiver claim. now three post-season homers. what has the experience been like for you? >> player: i can't explain it with my words. it's just awesome to be in the situation right now, to be able to come here and help this team get where we wanted to be. and be here talking to you right now, i can't express it. >> ken: cody, thank you very much. joe, back to you. >> joe: thank you. cody ross who broke up the no-hitter in game four of the division series with derek lowe on the mound facing the atlanta braves. breaks one up here tonight, albeit earlier in the third inning. in every giant game that they have played so far in the post season has been a one-run game. if they call it "torture," they are enjoying it with a one game to nothing lead, the san francisco giants win game one. chris and the guys coming up after the break.
8:02 pm
8:03 pm
8:04 pm
>> chris: welcome to the chevrolet post game show. giants winner in game one of the nlcs. 4-3, the final. i'm chris rose. rejoined by eric karros and mlb network mitch williams. the hero of the day, cody ross, as he becomes the third player to hit home runs in his first two nlcs at-bats. >> eric: i don't know if he did it on purpose but as we talked at the top of the show, you have to look for location. he got two pitches on the inner half of the plate and he doesn't miss them. gives giants two home run. great job of hitting by cody ross. >> chris: great job by bruce bochy, manager of the san francisco giants. he pushed all the right
8:05 pm
buttons. >> mitch: before the game bruce bochy said he would not take pat burrell out that early in this ballpark. he made a great decision. pinch running with schierholtz in the sixth inning. that is the difference in the ballgame. pat burrell gets thrown out at home. schierholtz scored. >> eric: how about the other decision he made, moving sanchez to throw in the second game instead of matt cain. it will be interesting because it will rest on sanchez's shoulders. batting average against the lowest in major league baseball, but also walks per inning, gives up a lot of free passes. which guy shows up? we have to see. >> chris: so, of course, sanchez is the game two starter. can he duplicate what tim lincecum did tonight? the giants' ace is on the field with our ken rosenthal. >> ken: tim lincecum, you get the win. so much bilderbeuilbuild-up to . what did you think about your performance? >> player: it's not the numbers but giving us the chance to win. put home runs behind me and
8:06 pm
you can easily squash yourself on that and make more bad pitches. take the next batter after that, man. >> ken: two homers from cody. the 4-1 lead in the sixth. how much did it mean to you pitching to get those runs? >> player: it was big. i have been talking a lot about the shutdown innings. i had chances with two of them tout them down, but it wasn't enough. just enough to squeak by for us. >> ken: watching brian in the eighth and ninth, what did you think of him? >> player: pure intensity. that's the way wilson is. of course, the beard. man, he just spotting up. intense. >> ken: last thing, tim. you have beaten halladay as a team. what does it mean for you as a club, just for your confidence? >> player: tons of confidence. more or less just about game one, setting the pace. and getting ready for tomorrow. >> ken: tim, thank you very much. chris, back to you. >> chris: all right, kenny. thank you very much. now the pressure shifts over
8:07 pm
to the phillies; namely, oswalt tomorrow night. >> mitch: definitely. he was brought here to pitch big games. tomorrow is as big a game he will pitch in his career. he has to go out, give the phillies an opportunity to stay in the game, score some runs and they're not going to score a lot off sanchez. so oswalt has to be really good. >> chris: remember, with houston he was the nlcs mvp in 2005. giants baseball. it's torture, folks but they get it done. 4-3, winner in game one. well, coming up next, your late local news. except on the west coast, when it will be seen at the regularly scheduled time. and on fox, late night, it's "fringe" followed by "running wild." tomorrow, a huge day on fox sports. starts with n.f.l. double header. game one, the falcons-eagles, lions-giants, seahawks-bears, or saints-bucs. game two, the dallas cowboys and the minnesota vikings in

the air live. and i managed to find some fans -- and we have phillies fans, too. it's kind of loud here. i want to tell you earlier today we talked to some giants fans. let's hear what they had to say. >> let's just say it's not easy being a giants fan in an environment that is not exactly
8:14 pm
welcoming. those wearing black and orange stood out. but not all of the fans we spoke with were from the bay area. >> no, i'm actually from virginia. >> reporter: this giants fans lives in pennsylvania but could pass for a home town fan. >> i just started watching the giants because of b.j. and i have been in love with them ever since. >> reporter: they got a local tv host to wear a tim lincecum wig. >> we have other giants fans and police. and if you didn't put on that wig we would have one of the two get after him. >> reporter: some fans have been wearing their dark beards and orange and black after take some precautions. >> no doubt about it we had a lot of warnings. we had a friend back home say bring goggles and a raincoat. >> reporter: so we are back at citizens bank park here. we did find more giants fans. sir, you are from the bay area?
8:15 pm
>> yes, i am from san francisco. >> reporter: you obviously thought it was really important to come out here? >> of course, we had tim lincecum on the mound. we thought we would get a win. we did. people weren't too unfriend. >> reporter: we will win the fear seize in five, maybe six if we have to come back here. it's al under wraps. i think we got it taken care of. >> reporter: some of the phillies fans disagree, but it's kind of a hard environment to be a giants fan in. cody ross coming up big. two home runs tonight. we're live in philadelphia. i will send it back to you before i become accosted by more phillies fans. >> sal getting a full dose of fans in philly. they are definitely hard core. he had to search for giants fans back there. here in the bay area they are everywhere, of course, in orange and black and a happy lot they are. ktvu news spending the game

8:17 pm
medical call just as the game was started. but during a busy night these firefighters had some time to cheer on the team. >> i am hoping they go all the way. i -- but they are quick say no matter what they are doing, the job comes first. >> we leave everything hot on the table. we get that call and we take off. >> all of us are created equal. some of us grow up to be giants is the theme of the mural

8:26 pm
8:27 pm
, you know, playing this environment. and i'm quiet down a little bit. what is it about this team that has allowed you guys to be so successful with so many new guys coming in and playing roles like both of you? >> well, for me, you know, i think when i got here the situation was a little different. we had a lot of outfielders that were all really experienced. some guys on the bench that are used to playing every day. we all just came together and we had one thing in mind, and that was to win. we had to check our ego at the door and put the personal statistics aside and go out there and just, you know, play as a team. and i think it's one of the main reasons where we are at
8:28 pm
right now. obviously our pitching is outstanding. for us to come together and play well as a team, that says a lot. >> i agree. he nailed it. it's easy for guys to come together when everyone has the same goal. that's obviously to win. a lot of guys that didn't start the year here are a big part of this team. like i said, when everybody is going out there to win it makes a big difference. >> and again to the left. >> pat, given how your year started and being released by tampa bay -- >> thanks. >> what does it feel like to get a big hit at the end of the day in an alcs game? and what was the turn around here versus tampa bay? >> i don't want to dwell too much on that. but obviously getting a chance to come out here and play i think was a big thing for me.
8:29 pm
you know, after starting on a different team and having it turn out the way it did is not what you hope for, obviously. i got a chance. the giants gave me an opportunity to come and play. i just try to make the most of it. >> how close was that two- strike pitch? and describe that whole at-bat. >> it was a ball. i don't know. i haven't checked. i know that, you know, playing here and the home team and the crowd, it was close. he started me off with a fastball, i believe. i got behind 0-2 again. just really just trying to get something to put a good swing on it, keep the inning going. that was what our plan was at the end of the day, keep the line moving. we have a lot of guys that are capable of doing damage, you know, that are in the power stretch.
8:30 pm
a guy like had, we have to maybe a conscious effort to tone it down and get good pitches to hit, which still isn't easy. >> cody, bruce said you wanted to be a rodeo clown. what's that all about? >> it was just something that i -- i don't know. it was something that i had aspirations of doing when i was, you know, in my adolescence or younger years, from 5 to 10. my dad was in the rodeo and i used to dress up like him and go to the rodeos. i guess, you know, the reason i was drawn to them so much is because those guys have no fear. they would put their life on the line to save a cowboy. you know, i just thought that was pretty neat that they could do that. >> charlie talked before the game about how difficult an adjustment you had to trying to be a dh. what is it that makes that so difficult? why are you so much -- do you
8:31 pm
so f seem so much more comfortable when you are playing the field? >> i wish i knew the answer because it probably would have worked out differently down there. you know, for me it probably has to do with being in the game, playing in the field, being active in the game. that's a huge part of it for me. i am not saying that's right or wrong. i think for me it's an important part of it. >> all right. a couple of the heroes from the giants, pat burrell and cody ross. >> 4-3 giants win game 1 of the nlcs.
8:32 pm
8:33 pm
8:34 pm
all right. the san francisco giants winning game 1 back in philly. 4-3. timmy lincecum the victory. meantime, a full day tomorrow for sports fans. besides the giants playing in game 2 in the nlcs, the niners will be playing. the two teams have spearheaded in opposite directions. joe fonzi with a preview. >> we will not put too much on what happened in the preseason. what is going on this weekend this philadelphia, if it wasn't for that there would have been a lot more build up between the 49ers and raiders. olson will return to the quarterback. jason campbell lost his job to gradkowski in game 2. now he has it back after gradkowski got injured. the chargers have produced a
8:35 pm
