5:53 am
major league. check out this catch. one-handed. nats actually trailed in this one 2-1 in the seventh. here comes danny espinoza with two on and two out. i don't think this is the best effort by darnell mcdonnell at the wall. it was a good leap. couldn't get it. two runs in this one and the nat take a 3-# lead. we move to the ninth and we're tied at three. bryce harper was upset because he didn't start yesterday. they inserted him in as a pinch hitter. he got i awalk. look at harper go. look at him get around the bases. he is coming around. you can't stop bryce. that is the winning run right there. and roger bernardina for the triple. and bryce runs so hard. nats win again, 4-3. very impressive to go up to boston and get that sweep. we have to show some love to our neighbors in the north. baltimore, playing great baseball ads well. a walk-off win for the second

straight game. this is what happened yesterday at fenway park. taking on the phillies which also helps out our nationals. they were down three runs until this swing right here and we're all tied up at four. bottom of the 10th, the shot right and check out hunter pence. you think this is a good effort? that didn't do anything. adam jones will come all the way around and there we go. celebrate, boys. yeah, the orioles win again 5- 4. it is a hotbed for baseball all of a sudden in the beltway. orioles just one game out of first in the american league east so very impressive to watch. >> just show the phillies the door. this is the st. jude classic. the u.s. open is this week and here are a couple of big guns, dustin johnson, who almost won the u.s. open a couple of years

ago. rory won it last year. on 18, had to make birdie. not how you make birdie by putting if in the middle of creek. i wonder what is going on with young rory. couldn't get it done yesterday. we'll see if he can get it done this weekend. tiger woods, phil mickelson and bubba watson who won at the masters. they are teeing off for the first few days. >> now, can we get to manny. >> let's get to it. saturday into in las vegas. this was timothy bradley challenging manny pacquiao. >> say it better than that. >> manny pacquiao. i watched it after the fight was over, before the decision was made. i went outside to hang out with friend because of his it was a foregone conclusion that pacquiao had won this fight rather easily and then all of a sudden i hear 115-113 and my ears perk up and i go what. they give the decision to timothy bradley in a split decision. it is stunning. pacquiao, as you could see, was stunned. could not believe he had lost.
5:56 am
just a couple of numbers. pacquiao landed 253 punches. bradley, 159. in the compu box stats that they keep in boxing being back you outlanded bradley in 10 of the 12 rounds. i have no idea what the vegas judges were looking at. let's just say it reeks of impropriety and the fact that there is a rematch scheduled between the two fighters. all of the money stays in- house. >> something smells fishy. >> if it walks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it might be a duck. >> thank you, dave. gas prices keep on dropping. good news, right? but how low can they go? that is ahead in our business beat. >> they could go lower. >> don't stop now. >> go below three. >> time to say good morning to kim newman, our facebook fan of the day. she watches fox 5 morning news with her son kai. >> she says being the fan of
