it was 8-0 milwaukee. the giants to their credit get back in it. tried to anyway. hector sanchez had a heck of a series. a homer to win it on monday, and then this three run double but it's not enough. the giants win the series, two out of three. 8-5 your final today. of course hitting a baseball, kind of a foreign concept for the a's. many of the fans were more entertaining than their offense. angels up 4-0, seth smith put a charge into it. a solo shot. we've got 1-1. in the 7th, the a's thought they might take the lead. mike trout has other ideas. we do go onto the 11th, even with that little tantrum. alberto for anaheim with a shot

down the left field line. good for a two run double. that held up, with the way the a's offense is going. bruising, low scoring, boston's rajon rondo kindnd of played like he thought he was fooling around in someone's backyard. completely out of control. the celtics fold around him and find themselves do or die even at 3-3. paul pierce on. he had 24 points, 10 rebounds. hitting the fade there, we're all even early on. but it is jrue holiday having himself a game. game 7, boston on saturday. and andy lee for the 49ers signs a six year $24 million extension. that's great money for a punter. great money for anybody.
