surprisingly big game? >> i'm going to tell will you something. i think cody ross had the big hit last night. i think this guy is going to show us why brian saibian picked him up late to help this team out. i'm expecting that cody ross is going to be one of the surprise guys in this series. >> reporter: dwayne kieper brought to you by torture. >> torture is good sometimes. >> reporter: live weeshg going to sentd it now back to you tom and lisa. >> torture. >> he should patent that. >> he really should. raj brought up a good point. that's such a perfect word for the giants this year. i guess we should expect more of it in the playoffs for sure. >> another thing you should expect, more people in orange and black as the giants fever just sweeps the city. in fact, thousands are flooding into the city to cheer the team on to back-to-back playoff wins. >> we heard yesterday city hall is bathed in orange, on the way
home, i noticed coy tower all lit up in orange. kimberly terry is live at the 21st amendment brewery. you know what the 21st amendment is, right? congress should make no law restricting partying during giants play offs. >> he's good, isn't he? >> reporter: the game still an hour and a half away, but take a look at this crowd that is already gathering. some people here staking out the best seats to watch game two of the five-game series. others here just to grab a bite to eat and drink before the game starts. the energy really up after last night's win with. it's been seven long years since the giants have made it this far and these fans of course are crossing their fingers for another win tonight, giants fans both lifelong and those that have just jointed the bandwagon say they are loving every minute of these playoffs and are energized by the team made up of veterans and young stars both. >> i am so excited.
giants fan my whole life. >> spring training this year i liked the look of them and they've just improved and made it better. >> it's been a long time, and i believe. i think they'll go all the way. i think the team this year is full of very unique, interesting characters, and for some reason, somehow bochy has made them mesh and made magic out of it. >> reporter: 21st amendment like most bars around the park are really beefing up staff and supplies to accommodate these crowds. the manager tells us they are serving four times the amount of beer they normally do. they even opened up a beer garden to accommodate the overflow of giants fans tonight. will manager says he himself is a huge giants fan. he's also welcoming crowds and the business here. live in san francisco kimberly terry. >> that's how you deal with torture.

mode of transportation to the games for many fans. now, this year alone more than 400,000 people chose to ride the train to a giants game. the train leaves from gilroy and meanders its way up the peninsula and over to china basin. there is no special giants train, but they do offer an occasional express train with limited stops. drinking is allowed on the train so many of these fans take advantage of that opportunity. in fact, some would prefer the trains we s were not express, t they take their time, giving them more time to finish what they're bringing on board. >> five minutes to get on a train, ride ault way up there, take the slowest train. that way you can have enough drinks. >> enjoy the train, the scenery, the drink, food. relax and enjoy the game. >> reporter: and we may have found the reason why they call them the braves. one courageous fan out here wore an atlanta braves t-shirt. he was booed on the platform and
no doubt he's being booed all the way up to china basin. the next train leaves in about 20 minutes. live in san jose, damian trujillo. >> thanks, damian. he has to be grarave to do that >> indeed. what about tonight's weather? we can tell you unequivocally it's windier than last night looking here across mccovey cove, it's chillier and breezier tonight. >> but john still white hot. nbc bay area's meteorologist jeff ranieri once again joins us. jeff, last night you were tim lincecum. what's it tonight, buster posey? >> i'm not in costume form, but i can tell you the wind is probably from all of the fans racing towards giants stadium tonight. yes, the streets are packed out here and people are flooding towards the stadium. you turn on a camera around giants fans and they just go wild.
