[ music ] good evening, everyone. thanks for joining our saturday night edition of sports wrap. the old journey song "don't stop believing" kept blaring inside at&t park all day today. as soon as pitcher barry zito took the mound the words changed to don't stop booing. a lot of energy by the fans at
12:15 am
at&t parked. but everybody seemed sub dude after barry zito had a great inning. the next batter scott harrison near 3-2 pitch and another bases loaded walk. san diego takes the 2-0 lead. barry zito gave up three earned runs in three innings. you can add this unearned run from pablo sandoval throws a ball to second base. see it again. it looks like some of the giants had the focus of mr. magoo. the giants had one hit off san diego starter tim staffer through six innings. here he is striking out posey looking. and the manager gets ejected for arguing balls and strikes. maybe he is just wanting to wake his team up. and maybe it worked. 7th inning uribe don't stop believing the 21st homerun of the year makes it 4-1. giants had just three hits through 8 innings but get three more in the 9th.
12:16 am
pablo sandoval off closer heath bell. and a tying run on first base and just one out. enter pitch hitter jose guillon. a quick but deadly finish to the rally. padres win 4-2. san diego is now 7-1 this year at at&t park. but the giants can still clinch this first playoffs spot since 2003 with a victory tomorrow. jonathan sanchez starts the game and hopefully he won't get booed as much as barry zito. >> you know, you can't look at it like, you know, six months of baseball comes down to one game because i think that's going to be, you know, you just can't put it on your back. you just go out there and you play or lose. you let your talent come through. >> obviously there is tension. i mean, playing in front of, you know, one of the best crowds in the world. and, you know, i mean you are trying your hardest. i mean, obviously there is going to be tension. i mean it's not like it is the 57th game of the season.
12:17 am
it is the 161st. so you are going to have, you know, tension and you are going to feel pressure. but that's what it is supposed to feel like. >> it is going to be an exciting game tomorrow, put it that way. that's all i can basically say. and more than 74 coaches and players came to atlanta to honor braves manager bobby cox. the 69-year-old manage is retiring after this season. philadelphia beat the braves again today. 7-0. if the braves lose sunday, the giants clinch at least a wild card spot. really now there are three teams that are still alive for two playoffs spots. but if both san francisco and atlanta wins tomorrow, then san diego is eliminated. but if the giants win and the braves lose then the padres and braves meet monday for the wild card berth. following so far? but if san diego and the braves win, then the giants will play in san diego monday for the n-l west title. that loser of that game monday
12:18 am
plays at atlanta tuesday for the wild card spot. but if the padres win and the braves lose. and the padres win the west because of their head-to-head record with the giants. and the giants end up winning the wild card spot. very confusing. as pick up a win today and get an assist from seattle. seattle safeco field isn't a homerun friendly ball club. but tonight saunders gets the glove on the ball but it slips out and guess over the wall. the 13th homerun of the year for cust. carter can hit tape measure shots. he blasted his third homerun of the season. as win 5-3. home or not still carter gets that rookie treatment. the old bubble gum trick still works. as can finish and clinch second place in the a-l west with one more victory tomorrow. tonight the 9th ranked stanford tried to win in the state of oregon. 4th ranked oregon ducks came
