. fills are headed out west. this afternoon they went for the series split with the split with the mets. two-run homeowner and the mets go up quickly 2-0. this time curtis grandeurson with a shot to the right. the mets lead now 4-1. bottom of the fifth, phillies will try to rally here. the bases loaded, no outside, nick williams flies out to center. freddy galvis, looks like he's tagging but does not go. galvis holds but here comes odubel herrara. he didn't know that galvis didn't try to score he's out at third and the double play kills
the rally. another case of bad base running and the phillies will lose 6-2. talk about bad base running. >> mistake he made was he assumes that freddy was going to go. he saw him take off but then put his head down. the only thing did he he didn't keep his head up's he just put his head down and ran to third. that was the only mistake he made. if you look back on the last six, seven week, he has not made many mistakes. today was an innocent mistake. he didn't keep his head up. that's the own thing he did. i'll take him any day. >> jack mccaffery still with us, never a dull moment with odubel herrara. he looked like he couldn't believe it. i have to ask you. when you're at this level, how does that happen >> as often as it happens. more often than that, it's
herrara, everybody in the ballpark knows, he didn't pay attention, he saw the catcher having trouble. he doesn't see the runner there >> he said he had his head down >> he had his head down, it's -- you have to have your head in the game and be aware of what's going on. high on their coaching staff in general. i'd like to see larry boa go back to third base and they've had tough years >> what is it with him >> lack of focus >> absolutely. i would think it's a lack of focus. they've tried to bench him, move him, they've done everything they can do. he is not -- some guys are just not great baseball people. he just doesn't grasp the game. at some point you have to say, this is going to continue. that's what you do. you see what mackanin does. he's come to point where he is just going to dismiss that, put him in the lineup.
pete mackanin is convinced that odubel herrara will hit 290 and he may be right. 15 game hitting streak right now? >> he can hit. >> but then >> but he kills you on the base pass, almost killed the game last week on the base pass. there doesn't seem to be anything they do to correct that. so >> it's a problem >> maybe a change base coaches, maybe have a new voice >> we'll mackanin said final seven weeks of the season will determine who's going to be with the club. who are you going to keep right now >> on the phillies? you know, it's, yeah, at the trade deadline you heard mcfail say there are no untouchable. since then, aaron is an untouchable. he will be a number one ace level star pitcher. all star pitcher. he was kind of tilting towards the all-star last year.
seven and overall pick in the draft he should be good. he's one you defendant want to keep. you want to keep reese, he's got one hit overtime weekend. you liked what you see. great actions. more patience than hose kins, nick williams you'll want to keep around >> i like him >> and freddy galvis is becoming a star level player, favorite phillies coming back. i could see freddy galvis coming back. he make as great defensive play every night. he can -- make as clutch hit. very good player, there are guys you want to look at. eflin got talent. you don't want to bail on young starting pitching too soon. other than that, i would think that my ears got to be open, 30 games under 500. i'm not going to have have a whole lot of untouchables >> who would you say is your biggest disappointment >> franco. he got decent stats
>> he's in his head >> not going to be the hitter that you thought he was going to be. make as great play. but he gives it what he can. but he just -- he's not very selective at the plate. >> makes wrong decisions to plate, not producing the batting average. so if you were thinking that the phillies might be decent this year, you were thinking that franco is going to have a pretty big year and he's having ok year to below ok year. that would be a disappointment >> he thought it was his break-out year, i was on the record years ago. he's going to be a multi-time mvp he's got that kind of skill. doesn't do it on game day. a little disappointing, young enough if he bounces back >> do you think matt klentak got enough in return for knee shack, hellickson and >> i would have liked to have seen him do is at some point start the maybe move bigger pieces for other people's pieces
because you got to at some point readdress who your major league players are. we seen them get these minor league players time and time again. from what we're told, the players they got were a fair exchange. he got a enough for them. you're not going to get stanton for those guys. but so, yeah, but at some point, at some point, matt klentak will have to start to break this up, it's a losing nucleus and not getting better. >> some shifting gears now, it was alumni weekend and the mood obviously very down after the death of darren daulton. can you talk about some of your memories >> you know what? my best memory of darren daulton was not so much no, i didn't but how he handled what happened to him in recent years. and it was very public, everybody knew what was going on. couple times he's come back and i was -- i remember thinking to myself how impressed i was with how well he handled the tough
situation and to me that put him in perspective of why he must have been a pretty good leader. when things are tough. he stood up and took it pretty well, and that's the way he was as a leader, a baseball had player too. >> such a fighter. >> yes, he was. that's what i'll -- i'll remember his later days and how strong he was there as much as i'll remember him as baseball player. >> jack, thank you so much >> my pleasure, lesley >> you can read more if jack in the delaware county daily times and online as delco times.com. coming up next in the sports zone, the jordan spieth another young guns, and nascar is

at just over seven weeks old these golden retrievers and these chocolate black and yellow labs are already in training as future guide dogs for the blind. here they learn to interact with others, adapt to new surroundings, and remain calm while under stress, skills that researchers have linked to how these puppies were raised. the new study finds more intense mothering was associated with program failure and mothers whose nursing style required greater effort were more likely to produce successful offspring. >> one of the findings was pups who were perhaps overly mothered, their moms were overly attentive to them, spending a lot of time with them, licking them copiously, that those pups were not as likely to be selected as guide. >> reporter: for example, here the more attentive mom is lying down alongside her sleeping pup. while in this one the mom taking a more tough love approach gives her puppies space to move
around. the ability to overcome obstacles, whether it be to find food or navigate a street curb, is a key factor in the success of a seeing eye dog. >> good boy. >> reporter: instructor joan markey says dogs who exhibit a fear of the unknown don't make the cut. >> if they're afraid of the world, they're not going to be a good guide. if they get worried by loud traffic, people making loud noises, anything that makes them afraid to the point where they want to bolt and run, that would get them out of the program. >> around 70% of dogs who enter guide dog training programs are successful. and that number could go up should less attentive parenting styles be encouraged by the trainers and by the dogs themselves. that's the overnight news for this monday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back with us a little later for the morning news and "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new york city, i'm elaine quijano.
>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the "overnight news." i'm elaine quijano. a federal civil rights investigation is under way after police say a young man rammed his car into a crowd of protesters in charlottesville, virginia. the deadly violence broke out at a white nationalists' rally on saturday. ku klux klansmen and neo-nazis were among those fighting counterprotesters in the streets. the white supremacists came from across the country to rally against plans to remove a confederate statue from a park. a 32-year-old woman was killed in the apparent car attack. two state troopers died when their helicopter crashed while patrolling the rally. president trump is being criticized by members of his own party for not specifically
denouncing white supremacists in the aftermath of the deadly clashes. today an organizer of the rally was jeered by a crowd. we have a team of reporters covering the chaos in charlottesville, beginning with david begnaud. >> reporter: with police lined up as a barricade, there was a sniper on the roof lining up for his shot just in case. as jason kessler walked out from behind that tree and walked up to a podium that was here and he looked out at about 50 or so cameras and people started shouting him down almost immediately. and it went south quickly. >> my name is jason kessler. i was the organizer of the unite the right rally. >> reporter: it was like adding fuel to a fire. jason kessler chose to hold this press conference in front of city hall one day after the violence. [ yelling ] >> what happened yesterday was a result of the charlottesville police officers refusing to do their job. >> reporter: immediately following his speech kessler started backing away from the microphone.
a mob of people surrounded him. police moved in, grabbed him. >> let him through. >> reporter: and hauled him off for his own safety. new video from saturday shows the driver racing down a side street and onto the crowded downtown mall, plowing into a crowd of people. 32-year-old heather heyer of charlottesville was killed. seconds after that impact the driver reverses. you see a red shoe fly out from underneath his car. police say 20-year-old james alex fields jr. of ohio was the man behind the wheel. this all follows tense protests that started friday night on the university of virginia campus. >> blood and soil! >> reporter: there white nationalists marched with tiki torches. saturday things got violent. protesters clashed with counterprotesters. police eventually declared the demonstration unlawful and told everyone to leave. >> this event has been declared an unlawful assembly. >> reporter: virginia governor terry mcauliffe said today police acted appropriately. >> not one single shot was
fired. not one bit of property damage. i'm proud of law enforcement. >> reporter: back here at charlottesville city hall, things have calmed down quite a bit. police are still on guard. you've still got a group of protesters that are here. but everyone is being peaceful. elaine, i want to update you on the victims. 19 were transported to a local hospital. nine of them have been discharged. ten are now listed in good condition. >> david begnaud, thank you. alex james fields jr., the 20-year-old accused of plowing into the protesters, is being held without bail. kris van cleave has been looking into the suspect's background. >> reporter: video from a drone overhead shows one of the vehicles police say 20-year-old james alex fields jr. smashed into as it pushed into a crowd of counterprotesters in the heart of historic charlottesville. at least 19 were hurt. so many more could have been. investigators believe fields was behind the wheel of his dodge when he slammed into the crowd and two cars before backing up and fleeing the scene.
he was arrested a short time later. >> running his car into a crowd of people? >> yes. >> did it hurt anybody? >> yeah. >> reporter: his mother, samantha bloom, learned of his arrest from a reporter. >> i just knew he was going to a rally. i mean, you know, i try to stay out of his political views. he -- you know, we don't -- you know, you don't really get too involved. i moved him out to his own apartment. so we -- i'm watching his cat. >> reporter: fields grew up in kentucky but moved to ohio with his mother about a year ago. his facebook page carried white supremacist and racist messages. shortly before the attack that killed 32-year-old heather heyer this was fields, dressed in the unofficial uniform of a white supremist group and carrying a shield with racist symbols. >> he just looked off. he had that kind of thousand-yard stare. just kind of grabbed me and -- >> reporter: kyle petroza took the picture. a photographer from charlottesville, he went to the alt-right rally to capture faces of hate. >> knowing what he did it's kind
of haunting now. you know, at the time i thought i was photographing someone who might just be a follower or, you know, just along for the march. but obviously not. >> reporter: fields is facing a number of charges, including second-degree murder. he's expected to be in court on monday. elaine? >> kris van cleave, thank you. paula reid now with more on those who were killed and injured in charlottesville. >> reporter: across the country people rallied for peace in honor of the victims of the violence in charlottesville. they carried signs and lit candles. >> i'm shocked and appalled that someone lost their life today. when they came out to protest hate and lost their life protesting hate. it's just a real shame. >> reporter: this morning charlottesville resident mai shirtleff laid a balloon and flowers at a makeshift memorial. >> my heart bleeds for this community right now. this isn't normal. this isn't right. this happened a long time ago. so why bring it up now? >> reporter: 32-year-old heather heyer was killed when this dodge challenger rammed into a crowd
of counterprotesters saturday afternoon. a virginia native, she was a paralegal at miller law group in charlottesville. in 2016 heyer posted this on her facebook page, "if you're not outraged you're not paying attention." just hours after heyer was killed smoke billowed from a nearby helicopter crash. police flew surveillance over protests all day, but around 5:00 p.m. a virginia state police helicopter went down just miles from charlottesville. 48-year-old lieutenant h. jay cullen and trooper pilot berke m.m. bates were killed in the crash. >> i was close to both of those state troopers. >> reporter: governor terry mcauliffe remembered the fallen officers at a service this morning. >> but for this hatred and bigotry that occurred here yesterday, berke and jay would have been home with their families. heather would be getting up today enjoying life. >> reporter: the ntsb is investigating why the troopers' helicopter crashed in those
woods. today would have been pilot trooper bates's 43rd birthday. elaine? >> paula reid, thank you. the mayor of charlottesville, democrat mike signer, discussed the attack with john dickerson on "face the nation." >> i don't want to make this too much about donald trump. we have a lot of grieving, a lot of work to do as a city and as a country. but he should look in the mirror. he made a choice in his presidential campaign, the folks around with him, to go right to the gutter, to play on our worst prejudices. and i think you are seeing a direct line from what happened here this weekend to those choices. i mean, a lot of people were coming here this weekend saying this will be a shot heard round the world, this will be the alt-right's moment, this will be alt-right 2.0. you know, all that kind of rhetoric. and i think they were -- they're getting -- you know, they're getting okays for that because they were invited in to basically a presidential campaign.
that has to stop, and it can stop now. what i did not hear if the president's statement yesterday as well-intentioned as it may have been is i didn't hear the words "white supremacy." and i think it's important to call this for what it is and to say okay, this show has run its course, this shark has been jumped, let's move on. clearasil rapid action begins working fast for clearly visible results in as little as 12 hours. but will it stop this teen from chugging hot sauce? ...oh jeremy. so let's be clear: clearasil works fast on teen acne, not so much on other teen things.

>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." the nuclear standoff with north korea is at the top of the agenda as the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, general joseph dunford, begins a tour of asia. dunford will meet with military leaders in china, south korea, and japan. he'll stress the u.s. commitment to our allies and insist a military confrontation can be avoided. david martin reports from the pentagon. >> reporter: behind the fire and fury rhetoric there is one very hard fact captured in this picture of the secretary of defense visiting the ballistic missile submarine "uss kentucky." if the u.s. were to unleash its military power against north korea, it would result in secretary mattis's words in the end of its regime and the destruction of its people. >> compare u.s. nuclear forces to korean nuclear forces. >> well, there's just no comparison whatsoever. >> reporter: before he retired, admiral james winterfeld was the vice chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. the number two man in uniform during the obama administration. he knows that one submarine like the "kentucky" can by itself carry enough nuclear weapons to annhilate north korea. >> were kim jong un for whatever reason to launch a nuclear weapon at the united states, would he in essence be committing suicide? >> absolutely. i mean, there's just no question that we would undertake a proportional response, but in the case of a nuclear weapon that proportional response would be overwhelming and would probably mean the end of the kim regime.
and he knows it. >> people say this guy's different. young, brash, unpredictable. do you think the logic of overwhelming force really means much to him? >> i think it does. the people i've spoken to in the intelligence community and elsewhere and my own judgment is that even though he's young and he's brash he's not irrational. he's not suicidal. >> reporter: but kim knows one other thing. even in defeat he could cause horrendous destruction to his enemies in south korea. as defense secretary mattis made clear to john dickerson of "face the nation" in his only television interview. >> a conflict in north korea, john, would be probably the worst kind of fighting in most people's lifetimes. >> reporter: kim would take tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of innocent people down with him. >> the north korean regime has hundreds of artillery cannons and rocket launchers within range of one of the most densely populated cities on earth, which is the capital of south korea. >> reporter: kim, like his father and grandfather before him, has lived under what he believes to be the constant
threat of an attack from the south. that fear, some would call it paranoia, is what is driving his quest for a nuclear weapon. >> he wants to have what we would view as a credible nuclear threat so we won't attack him. which is sort of ludicrous because we don't have any intent to attack him in the first place. >> so this is his great equalizer against the great american superpower. >> it's his insurance policy. in his view. >> reporter: although kim has tested missiles with a range great enough to hit the united states and is credited with being able to produce a nuclear warhead small enough to go on top of those missiles, he is not yet insured. to have a reliable weapon his scientists still want to develop a nose cone that can shield that nose cone from the heat and vibration of entering the earth's atmosphere. the pentagon's defense intelligence agency estimates
that could happen as soon as next year. >> eventually they're going to get there. they constantly test their systems. >> so the day is coming? >> it is. >> reporter: the u.s. military has been preparing for that day for the past 15 years. spending $40 billion on radars and interceptor missiles to shoot down an incoming north korean warhead. earlier this year the ballistic missile defense system shot down a mock north korean icbm launched from an atoll in the pacific. >> no system's perfect to be sure but i've got a lot of faith in that system. >> no system is perfect, but when you're dealing with nuclear weapons one getting through is an absolute catastrophe. >> it is. >> reporter: but look at it from kim's point of view. he could not be certain the nuclear-armed missile could get through but he could be certain if he tried it would be the end of his regime. >> it's very unlikely that he will ever willingly give up his program, but it's also very, very unlikely that he will ever use it. as long as we don't try to overthrow his regime.
>> reporter: can the u.s. live with that? it's up to the commander in chief, who has said he will not allow north korea to threaten america or its allies. the tiny pacific island of guam finds itself in the crosshairs of the nuclear standoff. north korea has threatened to send missiles towards the u.s. territory as a show of force. the island is home to more than 6,000 american troops and a vast amount of military hardware. vladimir duthiers paid a visit to guam for our series "cbsn on assignment." >> we arrived here at anderson air force base in guam. this wing is considered a power projection platform. we're about 2,100 miles away from north korea. but that doesn't really matter because this base can accept assets from anywhere in the world and launch them and take the fight to our enemies. >> reporter: this base has the largest stockpile of fuel, ammunition in the air force, can respond to threats from the middle east, asia, and across the pacific. colonel sam white has spent his
career here among these bombers. in a worst case scenario how quickly can this air field get up to speed? >> so we stand ready to respond to a wide range of things at the president's call. that's the reason we have the continuous mission, is to give the president of the united states sovereign options against threats to the u.s. so we're ready today. >> reporter: and they've had to prove that multiple times in recent weeks. on july 29th, the day after north korea's latest successful icbm launch, two u.s. b-1 bombers took off from this airfield and flew over 2,000 miles to the north korean border in a show of force. the b-1, also known as the bone, is capable of carrying more arms than any other bomber in the air force. and as its air crews can attest, it's almost among the loudest. >> especially being out here you get to feel the rumble of them. >> wow.
>> when a b-1 goes into a particular region, it sends a very strong message that the united states means business. >> our first step is deterrence, obviously. however, if the combatant commander calls upon us, the b-1 is a very credible lethal force. >> you're looking at what airmen called hayes igloos stretching along this road for about half a mile. 15 million pounds of net explosive conventional munition they're built by the 36th munitions squadron. >> advanced penetrator often referred to as a bunker buster. it can actually penetrate concrete, reinforced even. >> what kind of force are we talking about? when we say 2,000 pounds, what kind of devastation are we looking at? >> if anything ever goes wrong for these, we always for safety evacuate 4,000 feet. >> 4,000 feet. >> yes, sir. >> reporter: due to north korea's difficult mountainous terrain and the bunkers these types of munitions could be of
vital importance in the event of a conflict. >> you can see vlad's full report tonight at 10:00 p.m. eastern. the "cbs overnight news" will be the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. re emical lysol. what it takes to protect. no, please, please, oh! ♪ (shrieks in terror) (heavy breathing and snorting) no, no. the running of the bulldogs? surprising. what's not surprising? how much money aleia saved by switching to geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more.
