>> 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.

>> joe: aerial coverage tonight brought to you by directv. for the most sports, period, call 1-800-directv. philadelphia eagles will be playing 14 hours from now on fox. the falcons will visit the eagles. this has to be the 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. >> 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 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 -- 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. >> 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. >> 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 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. 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. 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.
>> 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 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. 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 help you reach a healthy level.

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. >> joe: the 2-2. ball three. >> tim: five
>> 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 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. 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 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 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. 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. >> 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. 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 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. lincecum against halladay. we will give you our traveler's plays of the game. it's c
