mark gardner said stay here because you're going in the game. he did get locked in and came up with two big innings for the giants. the count is 2-1 on hamilton. now 3-1. >> tim: mark gardner, himself, a major league pitcher for san francisco giants. knowing full well what getting locked in means and conveying that to affeldt. >> joe: hamilton trying to reach for the first time tonight. >> joe: 3-1. chopped foul.

that belongs to ramirez. now at first and second. two down. >> tim: it's one of those odd situations in baseball, joe, where the san francisco giants just want an out. vladimir guerrero goes back in the dugout and they shake his hand for scores from third. it's an insignificant run. giants are one out closer to winning the game. >> joe: two outs. strike one. nelson cruz, 0-4. andrus and hamilton the runners. >> joe: a fly ball to right centerfield. well-hit. back at the track. this ball will drop. checks up in front of the warning track.
two runs score. and just like that, nelson cruz has turned this in to a three-run inning. 11-7 game. >> tim: tremendous power the other way. look at this, in the deepest part of the ballpark. schierholtz nor torres can get to it and when it hits, it just bites. like joe buck nine iron. >> joe: rolled off the green. two out. kinsler takes a strike. four-run game. ramirez goes to third, allows two runs on one hit. affeldt, a man he walked came around the score. and now wilson tries to end it. what a night.
strike two. >> tim: not a healthy night for pitchers. >> joe: in a game started by cliff lee and tim lincecum, in a nine-inning game. wilson is the last one on the mound. it will tie a record. 12 pitchers used here tonight between the two sides. 18 runs. it proves coming in we have no idea what we're talking about when you see us on camera before the game. pitching pitch, pitching. great match-up. enbelievable. 0-2 the count. unbelievable. wilson. high. ball one.

tried to get ahead of him early and i found holes. >> ken: down 2-nothing to cliff lee, how worried were you about the team's chances? >> player: we weren't worried. we got things going. that's the team. we battle and battle and fight. we know two runs isn't that much. obviously, cliff lee is one of the best pitchers in the game. unhittable in the post season. we felt like we had a chance. >> ken: not that you ever lack confidence, how much confidence does this give you? >> player: a lot of confidence, you know what i mean? we believe in ourselves but it helps more when we put runs on the board and take the pressure off the pitchers. >> ken: thank you. back to you. >> player: love you guys. >> joe: freddy sanchez, one of the many stars for the giants in an 11-7 win in game one. for tim mccarver, steve horn, editorial consultant and ken rosenthal. guys in the studio coming out in their spot in left center.
>> chris: welcome to the chevrolet post-game show on fox. juan uribe, he led game four of the nlcs with a sac fly. this one went deeper and gave the giants game one of the world series against the texas rangers. hi, everybody, welcome. i'm chris rose, joined by eric karros and the chicago white sox manager ozzie guillen. listen, when there is 18 combined runs scored you usually want to talk about the hitting. eric karros want you to talk about the glove work or lack thereof on one side.
>> eric: inability to make plays and ability to make plays was the difference in the ballgame. take a look at what happened early on. juan uribe with the bases loaded. ian kinsler hits a ball. he makes a nice play. double play here. now it's a one-run bamgame. difficult play. he made it look easy. now the rangers were ahead 2-nothing, lead-off. michael young, he boots it! now renteria at first base, they score two runs and it would have still been a 2-nothing ballgame, it's 2-2. game changer. >> chris: the game changed with the one swing by uribe. ozzie you had him for five years in chicago. five hits in the post season but they come up so big all the time. what makes him so special? >> ozzie: i think uribe is a big hit. he is always going to be a good at-bat when the game is on the line. he is special.
when you walk in the clubhouse and the game is on the line, you want him out there, no matter playing defense or a bat in his hands. >> chris: what is going to happen when he finds out you picked against him and picked the rangers to win this? >> ozzie: he is my friend. i have to pick somebody. i hope it goes to seven games. >> chris: so far, it's 1-nothing giants. tomorrow night, matt cain will be on the bump. all he's done the post season is not given up earned run yet. c.j. wilson was outstanding in game one for rangers against the yankees in alcs but lost game five to new york. if you are a ron washington, eric karros, what is he telling his team and is he worried? >> eric: i don't think he's worried. one of washington's strengths all year long is get the team to believe. in the alds, they had to go to tampa after a two-game lead. they played this game in tampa and they won. in the championship series, devastating loss to the yankees. in game one, what do they come
out in game two and just dominate? i expect tomorrow they'll be ready to play. >> chris: can you panic a little bit the if you are the rangers? your ace got lit up and you didn't score a lot until the ninth inning. can you panic? >> ozzie: not really. it's only one game. you have to take advantage of that. now, sit back, relax. go to the second game. the first game is always something happens on the field. but i don't think there will be any fear there. nothing is going to happen. they'll come back and play the game. >> chris: you tell me like you would in 2005 and take another 30-minute nap. >> ozzie: right. take a nap. >> eric: look at how he looks. he needs it. ! >> chris: congratulations to the giants who win game one of the best of seven world series. in doing so, score the most runs they scored in a game since september 23. coming up next, it's your late local news except on the west coast, who will be seen at the regularly scheduled time. remainder, join us tomorrow for game two of the world series, from the city by the
