rollins fouls it away. >> 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.

10:34 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.
10:35 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
10:36 pm
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,
10:37 pm
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.
10:38 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.
10:39 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
10:40 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.
10:41 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.
10:42 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.
10:43 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.
10:44 pm
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.
10:45 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

10:49 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.

10:53 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
10:54 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

10:58 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
11:01 pm
you came to the giants on a 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. th.ou

>> 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
11:05 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
11:06 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 to cut 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.
11:07 pm
now the pressure shifts over 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

11:14 pm
quotes witnesses saying one of the five men held mohamad on the ground while the four others kicked and stomped the man. for now the dc9 bar remains closed by police order. our team coverage continues at fox 5 matt ackland. he talked with ali's brother and father today and they tell us they still have lots of questions. >> reporter: tonight we had a chance to talk to ali mohamed's family at their silver spring home. we asked about these charges being reduced against the five men accused of beating ali on friday morning. they say at this point they are being patient. they are waiting for the autopsy to be complete and for this police investigation to run its course. it was a day of grieving for ali mohamad's family but also a day of wanting to know exactly what happened at 2:30 friday morning outside the dc9 club. >> i just want to know how he died. and i know that, you know, he couldn't have just died there
11:15 pm
for no reason. he is perfectly healthy. >> reporter: he says he was with his brother the day before he died. his brother appeared healthy, he told us. although an autopsy is being conducted to determine exactly what caused ali's death, his brother says it seems clear. >> i had actually seen him before that thursday afternoon i was with him in the house. perfectly fine. healthy person. nothing happened to him until they put their hands on him. >> reporter: but ali's father is more patient and confident the truth will come out about how his son died when the autopsy is complete. and witnesses are interviewed by the authorities. >> i cannot be in a hurry. i have to just wait and see what the legal jurisdiction is doing. >> reporter: both family members are asking witnesses who may not yet have talked to police but saw what went on that morning to come forward so
11:16 pm
the truth can be known. >> that's why i'm asking people out there on yew street because that is busy, i'm asking that whoever it is can just, if you know, if you seen something just come out and let us know. because the family needs it, they deserve it. >> reporter: fox 5 news. >> the suspects released from custody today will all be forced to start waring devices in the next few days. >> the new tonight police say a man was the victim of a homicide. 18-year-old ryan campbell walked into the springfield health complex thursday looking for treatment. police say he had trauma to his body. he died shortly after 11:00. now detectives want to know campbell knew his attacker. a medical examiner will decide what killed him. investigators are trying to piece together clues in the deadly accident in arlington. a driver hit a motorcyclists on route 50 and irvington friday night. the driver stayed at the scene. his name has not been released

11:18 pm
>> reporter: the repair crews have been working around the clock but all of the water left a big mess. workers unsure what caused the break, but suspect it's a familiar theme aging infrastructure. >> this line was put in before the great depression. and it is still here on constitution avenue. so we never know why any particular break occurs but we do have older infrastructure. >> even when they get the pipe repaired there is still a bigger problem. all of the water undermined a portion of the roadway. >> that's a lot of water a 24- inch main. when it breaks underground it moves. it will move to anywhere if there is a way to get up to the surface and starts understood mining the under pinning of the road. so we have a lot of damage around here at 10th and constitution on both sides of the street. probably 100 yards. so this is going to be a significant restoration project. >> reporter: constitution is shut down from 9th to 12th street. the agency is bringing in special contractors. but the big question is whether they can finish by monday
11:19 pm
morning's rush hour. >> if this were a smaller break we would put a metal plate on it to get the traffic through to resurface. this is such a large area, it won't be able to be paved. we will have to re-do the road here. it is a big area. to be able to get that done that is now a challenge we are pushing for it. but it may not be done by monday morning. >> reporter: in northwest dc i'm ros slater, fox 5 news. >> a nice day across the reason. nice enough for some people to jump off a bridge without bungee courts. they celebrated in virginia today. bridge day is considered the largest extreme sports event in the world. i would not do that if you paid me $1 million. a little windy here. gwen tolbart in the weather center with a check on our weather. gwen, i don't think they could do that here today because i tell you, you had to hold on to everything the wind was so strong. >> yes, $1 million bucks doesn't get me jumping off that either. no way. a wonderful day today. take a look at our
11:20 pm
