replay, brandon crawford would have a chance to be a hero with a bat later and that wouldn't work out either. one little mistake for justin turner, from cueto, writes it over and lofting his 24th home run of the year, solo shot. 1-0 and it would hold up. brandon crawford, they couldn't touch rich hill, six scoreless but they threaten joe blanton, two on, two out, brandon crawford gets good wood on it, deep right-center, you are thinking finally. no. josh reddick another former a with the catch, 1-0 the final. they've lost four games in the standings in the last four days. the giants have lost 8 out of 10. you talk to most fans they will tell you one of the worst if not the worst trade ever made by the athletics, josh donaldson to toronto. not saying they are not kind of right but be fair, one of the guys they picked up is really coming on of late.
