5:54 pm
the season alive. that's the big thing. i'm not as big into momentum. if we go back, they lost in 19 innings. i think it it was huge, obviously, because it kept this series alive for a game four and a pitching matchup where the nats have the advantage. >> holden, thank you so much. big game tonight. game four. coming up later in the 6:00 hour, geo gonzalez talks about returning home. he played for oakland. he played in this park several times and seeing if he can keep those emotions in check. i'm kristen berset live in san francisco. we'll send it back to you in the studio. >> thank you. coming your way at 6:00, packing heat behind bars. how in the world did a defendant manage to smuggle a gun into a holding cell in d.c. superior court? >> but first, a chicago teen is looking at a long prison sentence after federal agents caught him trying to hop a plane to go off
