there. tiger woods said he was hot after his round, which ended with back-to-back bogeys. 1 over today, even for the tournament. but makes the cut. gary woodland would take over the lead with a 6-under 65. check out this brad putt on his final hole. this is a 50-footer and down it goes. woodland leading at 9 under. justin rose is along in second. then it's oosthuizen, rory. 2-1 athletics. that was the last lead they would enjoy. j.p. crawford ground ball. this takes a weird hop past olsen. couple runs are going to score. it's a 3-2 game. then the mariners were in last place, by the way, busted open. omar navarez a two-run bomb. and the mariners go on to win by a final of 9-2. giants and brewers. sandhya, they're playing this in the arctic or what's going on with weather out there? >> it's the fog. >> all the fog.
fifth inning. kevin pillar gone. his eighth of the year. panda, mike yastrzemski also homered. pillar is so strong he gets picked off here and then takes the base with him. there's a post at the bottom that's supposed to hold the base down. but not in this -- i've never seen that in a zillion years of watching baseball. giants win the game 5-3. i actually was going to try to work in a rawhide for dan but -- >> abc 7 sports sponsored by river rock are we tnot yet.? at crystal geyser we put our mountain source on our bottle...
