  • HEIDI: OUTSIDE TO SAN FRANCISCO
  • FOR THE PHILLIES AND THE GIANTS.
  • >> THEY JUST KEEP ON DOING IT.
  • >> THEY HAVE GOTTEN BACK IN THE
  • RACE, THEY HAVE BEEN HOT.
  • >> HE HAS A CHANCE TO GET THEM
  • BACK TO THE POSTSEASON.
  • >> AARON NOLA, A GUY WITH GREAT
  • STUFF.
  • ONE OF THE TOP 10 PITCHERS IN MY
  • OPINION IN BASEBALL.
  • >> THIS WILL DO IT, THE PHILLIES
  • WIN IT.
  • HEIDI: YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE AT A
  • SHOT IN SAN FRANCISCO, THE
  • GIANTS WILL BE HOSTING THE
  • PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES COMING UP
  • IN 45 MINUTES.
  • WE ARE GETTING YOU SET FOR GAME
  • TIME IT HELLO, WELCOME TO THE
  • MLB GAME OF THE WEEK LIVE ON
  • YOUTUBE PREGAME SHOW.
  • I AM HEIDI WATNEY.
  • I WILL HAVE A COHOST AT SOME
  • POINT IF HAROLD REYNOLDS SHOWS
  • UP.
  • HAROLD: I'M HERE.
  • HEIDI: THERE YOU ARE.
  • WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR
  • HAROLD.
  • HAROLD: I AM ALWAYS DOING
  • THINGS.
  • HEIDI: HE IS GOING TO TEACH YOU
  • GUYS SOMETHING GREAT HERE TODAY
  • ON OUR LITTLE SHOW.
  • WE HAVE A LOT PLANNED FOR YOU
  • GUYS.
  • THE GIANTS AND PHILLIES, BIG
  • N.L. WILD-CARD MATCHUP.
  • BOTH TEAMS.
  • WE ARE GETTING YOU SET FOR FIRST
  • PITCH.
  • AND ONE THING WE HAVE TO HAVE IS
  • A CLOCK.
  • OTHERWISE HE WILL KEEP TALKING
  • AND GO RIGHT THROUGH THE FIRST
  • INNING.
  • HAROLD: THIS IS WHAT IT IS FOR,
  • SERIOUSLY?
  • HEIDI: RIGHT ABOUT THERE.
  • HAROLD: YOU ALREADY HEARD HER
  • SAY IT IS THE N.L. WEST
  • WILD-CARD MATTER.
  • NO, PHILLIES ARE IN THE RUN FOR
  • THE EAST.
  • I KNOW YOU ARE FROM CALIFORNIA,
  • FROM CHINATOWN, LET'S GET THAT
  • OUT THERE.
  • BOTH TEAMS HAVE A LOT AT STAKE.
  • THAT IS WHAT MAKES THIS FUN.
  • HEIDI: THE GIANTS HAVE
  • STRUGGLED.
  • THEY ARE 1-6 IN THEIR LAST SEVEN
  • GAMES.
  • THE PHILLIES CAME OFF WITH A BIG
  • SERIES AGAINST THE ARIZONA
  • DIAMONDBACKS.
  • THEY ARE ON A ROLL.
  • HAROLD: THEY HAVE BEEN
  • INCONSISTENT.
  • YOU WOULD THINK THEY WOULD BE
  • TOP OF THE EAST.
  • NOW THE METS ARE HOT.
  • THE BRAVES, RUNNING AWAY WITH
  • IT.
  • IT IS JUST WHO IS HOT LATELY.
  • I THINK IT WILL GO LIKE THAT
  • UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR, WHICH
  • TEAM ENDS ON A HOT STREAK AS
  • OPPOSED TO A COLD STREAK.
  • [INDISCERNIBLE]
  • HEIDI: NO OFFENSE TO MY GIANTS.
  • THIS IS A HOT MATCH UP, AARON
  • NOLA AND MADISON BUMGARNER.
  • NOLA HAS BEEN LIGHTS OUT, AN
  • E.R.A. UNDER 2.
  • THE GIANTS LOVE MADISON
  • BUMGARNER.
  • I KNOW WE SHOULD DO A REBUILD,
  • BUT WE DO NOT WANT TO LET GO OF
  • MADISON BUMGARNER.
  • HAROLD: HE HAS MEANT A LOT TO
  • THE FRANCHISE.
  • I AM EXCITED TO SEE HIM PITCH
  • TONIGHT.
  • HE IS A COMPETITOR.
  • WE CAN TALK ABOUT THE FASTBALL,
  • THE BREAKING BALL, BUT IT IS A
  • COMPETITIVENESS.
  • GIVES UP A HOME RUN, IS
  • SCREAMING AT HITTERS.
  • HE BRINGS FIRE AND PASSION.
  • I THINK THIS BALLPARK AND FAN
  • CAKE -- FAN BASE GETS
  • OVERLOOKED.
  • IT IS AN EAST COAST VIBE IN SAN
  • FRANCISCO AND BUMGARNER BRINGS
  • THAT TO THE MOUND.
  • IT IS THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE
  • NON-TRADE JULY 31, HE DID NOT
  • GET TRADED.
  • IT IS THE FIRST TIME HE IS
  • PITCHING AT HOME.
  • HEIDI: I AM EXCITED TO SEE
  • REACTION FROM SAN FRANCISCO
  • FANS.
  • THEY WILL GO CRAZY FOR HIM.
  • HE IS YOUR BOY.
  • HE ASKED NOT TO BE TRADED, THAT
  • WAS NICE OF YOU.
  • HAROLD: WE WILL SEE, DOES IT PAY
  • OFF OR NOT?
  • THEY ARE IN A TAILSPIN.
  • 15-18 THEY WON.
  • KIND OF CHANGED THE DIRECTION OF
  • THE ORGANIZATION.
  • THERE IS NO DOUBT SMITH WOULD
  • HAVE BEEN GONE, BUMGARNER.
  • HEIDI: THEY HAVE THE SECOND
  • WORST RECORD IN THE NATIONAL
  • LEAGUE AT THE END OF JUNE, AND A
  • RED HOT JULY WHICH MADE THEM
  • SAY, BRUCE BOCHY'S FINAL SEASON,
  • WE ARE GOING ALL IN.
  • HAROLD: THE OTHER SIDE OF THE
  • COIN, AARON NOLA.
  • HE HAS FOUND HIS STRIDE.
  • HE IS ONE OF THE TOP PITCHERS IN
  • THE GAME.
  • I LOVE THE FACT HE HAS BEEN ABLE
  • TO LOCATE UP AND DOWN ALL THE
  • QUADRANTS OF THE STRIKE ZONE.
  • I THINK REALMUTO HAS HELPED HIM.
  • A GREAT PITCHER.
  • SEE HOW LOW HE SETS THAT TARGET
  • DOWN ON THE KNEE?
  • FANS THAT GO WAY BACK.
  • THIS IS A GREAT BALLPARK
  • DEPICTION.
  • NOLA IS GOING TO BE GREAT IN
  • THIS PARK BECAUSE THE BALL DOES
  • NOT CARRY AS MUCH.
  • I THINK IT WILL BE GOOD FOR HIM.
  • HEIDI: LET'S LOOK AT WHAT THE
  • PHILLIES ARE ROLLING OUT
  • TONIGHT.
  • BRYCE HARPER, A GUY WHO HAS BEEN
  • UP AND DOWN THIS SEASON.
  • NOT HAVING AS BAD A SEASON AS
  • EVERYONE MAKES IT SOUND LIKE.
  • HAROLD: HE IS SWINGING THE BAT
  • -- A LOT OF R.B.I.'S, A GOOD
  • PACE.
  • HEIDI: RHYS HOSKINS, ANOTHER
  • GOOD SEASON.
  • YOU DO NOT HEAR A LOT ABOUT JEAN
  • SEGURA.
  • JAY BRUCE IS THE NEW
  • ACQUISITION.
  • HAROLD: THAT WAS A PICKUP FROM
  • SEATTLE.
  • I AM SURPRISED TO SEE RHYS
  • HOSKINS ON THE BOARD.
  • HE WAS NORMALLY BEHIND HARPER,
  • PROTECTING HIM.
  • WE WILL SEE HOW THE LINEUP WORKS
  • OUT.
  • HEIDI: SPEAKING OF HARPER, YOU
  • HAVE THOUGHTS.
  • HE HAS BEEN UP AND DOWN THIS
  • YEAR.
  • HE TOLD ME HE DOES NOT WATCH ANY
  • VIDEO OF HIMSELF, OR OPPOSING
  • PITCHER'S.
  • -- PITCHERS.
  • THAT IS STRANGE IN THIS DAY AND
  • AGE OF SO MUCH VIDEO.
  • HAROLD: I REMEMBER ONE YEAR I
  • WAS ON A HOT STREAK, SO MYSELF
  • ON VIDEO, I DO NOT HOLD MY HANDS
  • THERE.
  • NEXT THING I KNEW, STARTED
  • DIVING.
  • I WANT TO BREAK DOWN BRYCE.
  • THE THING THAT IS AMAZING, HE
  • CHANGES HOW HE IS APPROACHING AT
  • THE PLATE WITH HIS STANCE.
  • I WILL COME TO THE PLATE REAL
  • QUICK.
  • WE ARE USED TO SEEING THIS ONE.
  • HE STARTED DOING THAT LATER IN
  • HIS CAREER.
  • I WILL TAKE YOU THROUGH ROOKIE
  • YEAR TO WHAT HE DID AT THE
  • BEGINNING OF THE YEAR IN PHILLY
  • AND HOW HE HAS CHANGED HIMSELF.
  • I DO NOT KNOW IF IT HELPS OR
  • NOT.
  • THAT IS WHAT HE IS DOING WORK HE
  • YEAR.
  • LOOK AT THE POSITION THE BAT
  • ISN'T.
  • REAL SIMPLE, JUST LOAD AND LET
  • IT SWING.
  • THEN HE BECAME A STAR.
  • HE PUT IT ON THE SHOULDER.
  • THEN HE HAS TO MOVE IT THERE.
  • TO BRING IT TO WHERE HE WAS AS A
  • ROOKIE, THERE.
  • THAT CAME WITH TIME, GETTING TO
  • KNOW THE PITCHERS.
  • TIME AND TORQUE.
  • HE GOT HIMSELF IN A STRUGGLE
  • LAST YEAR.
  • WHAT DID HE DO IN JULY?
  • WENT BACK TO HIS OLDEST STANCE.
  • FIRST DAY HE HAS THE BAT HERE
  • AGAIN.
  • ALL OF A SUDDEN BRYCE HARPER IS
  • HITTING HOME RUNS.
  • OFF THE RIGHTY.
  • BOOM, OFF THE LEFTY.
  • WENT BACK, HAD THE BAT ON HIS
  • SHOULDER.
  • HE SHOWS UP IN ARIZONA, LOOK AT
  • WHERE THE BAT IS.
  • IS THAT DALTON OR BRYCE HARPER?
  • ALMOST A HOME RUN.
  • HERE IS THE MYSTERY OF BRYCE.
  • NEXT DAY HE SAYS, LET ME GO TO
  • MY OLD ALL-STAR.
  • NOT ONLY IS IT ON THE SHOULDER,
  • HE HAD SOME MISSILE LINE DRIVE
  • TO LEFT FIELD.
  • WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT WE WILL SEE
  • FROM BRYCE.
  • HOPEFULLY CUTTING DOWN ON THE
  • STRIKEOUTS.
  • HEIDI: WHY DO YOU THINK HE DOES
  • THAT?
  • ONE DAY TO THE NEXT CHANGES HIS
  • SWING SO VASTLY.
  • HAROLD: IT IS ALL ABOUT COMFORT
  • AND CONFIDENCE.
  • ONE DAY CL -- CAL RIPKEN WAS
  • PLAYING LIKE THIS.
  • REALLY TRYING TO GET YOURSELF --
  • THE MAIN THING IS, YOU WANT TO
  • GET TO THIS POINT.
  • IN BRYCE'S CASE, LEFT-HANDED.
  • WHATEVER MAKES YOU COMFORTABLE
  • TO GET TO -- THE BAT TO THAT
  • POINT, IS WHAT YOU DO.
  • HEIDI: ISN'T BEING MORE
  • CONSISTENT WITH YOUR SWING
  • BETTER?
  • WHEN YOU CAN REPEAT YOUR
  • MECHANICS, THAT IS WHEN YOU HAVE
  • SUCCESS.
  • HAROLD: ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT
  • REPEATING A SWING?
  • WE ARE GOING TO TEACH HEIDY --
  • HEIDI.
  • WE THINK YOU HAVE TO HAVE A
  • SWING FOR EVERY PITCH.
  • HEIDI: STAY TUNED FOR THAT
  • BECAUSE I HAVE NOT PLAYED
  • BASEBALL OR SOFTBALL, I JUST
  • TALK ABOUT IT.
  • HAROLD: BUT YOU ARE A GOLFER.
  • HEIDI: I CAN GOLF.
  • LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE GUYS
  • WHO ARE GOING TO SWING THE BATS
  • FOR THE GIANTS.
  • WHERE IS MIKE YASTRZEMSKI IN THE
  • LINEUP?
  • HAROLD: COMING UP AND SECOND.
  • HEIDI: WE GOT THE BABY GIRAFFE
  • BRANDON BELT LEADING OFF.
  • BUSTER POSEY DOING THE CATCHING,
  • BATTING THIRD.
  • HAROLD: BRANDON BELT IS A
  • SURPRISE IN THE LEADOFF SPOT.
  • THAT IS NEW, MODERN SCHOOL.
  • TO SEE THE LEFT-HANDED HITTER IN
  • THE TWO SPOT, I CAN SEE THAT.
  • HEIDI: STEPHEN VOGT HAS BEEN
  • GOOD FOR THE GIANTS.
  • HAROLD: HE HAS BEEN PLAYING
  • WELL.
  • HE IS PLAYING LEFT FIELD
  • TONIGHT.
  • HEIDI: ONE OF THEIR ACQUISITIONS
  • AT THE TRADE DEADLINE, GENNETT.
  • HIS DEFENSE IN CENTER FIELD,
  • KEVIN PILLAR, EXCITING.
  • HAROLD: THIS GIANTS TEAM, IT IS
  • A MYSTERY THEY ARE BACK IN IT.
  • BRANDON CRAWFORD STRUGGLED ALL
  • YEAR.
  • SCOOTER GENNETT JUST ARRIVED
  • BECAUSE THEY WERE SCUFFLING AT
  • SECOND BASE.
  • BUSTER POSEY ONLY HAS 10, 11
  • HOME RUNS.
  • HEIDI: IT IS REALLY THEIR
  • OFFENSE THAT TOOK OFF.
  • HAROLD: YASTRZEMSKI WAS NOT A
  • GREAT PICKUP.
  • HE BROUGHT SOME ENTHUSIASM.
  • HEIDI: LIKE HIS GRANDPA, HUH?
  • HAROLD: I GOT SOME VIDEO OF HIS
  • GRANDPA.
  • CHECK IT OUT.
  • IF YOU DO NOT KNOW CARL
  • YASTRZEMSKI, YOU HAVE NOT BEEN
  • AROUND.
  • GRANDPA, CAN YOU HELP ME WITH MY
  • SWING A LITTLE BIT?
  • THIS DUDE COULD HIT.
  • CARL YASTRZEMSKI WON THE TRIPLE
  • CROWN, M.V.P. PLAYER.
  • I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL, HE IS
  • GOING FOR HIS 3000TH HIT.
  • FOUR YEARS LATER I AM COMING TO
  • FENWAY PARK, YOUR OLD STOMPING
  • GROUNDS WHERE YOU USED TO
  • REPORT.
  • HE IS STANDING THERE, EARLY
  • HITTING BY HIMSELF.
  • WALK-IN, BATTING PRACTICE VIDEO.
  • HE HELD HIS HANDS UP HIGH.
  • HE HAD WRISTBANDS TAPED UP HIS
  • WRISTS.
  • CARL YASTRZEMSKI WAS TAKING
  • BATTING PRACTICE AND I WAS LIKE,
  • THIS IS THE BIG LEAGUES.
  • IT WAS THE COOLEST THING HEIDI:
  • I THINK I SAW IN MY BIG-LEAGUE
  • TIME.
  • FENWAY PARK WATCHING THIS GUY,
  • AMAZING.
  • IT IS REALLY EXCITING TO SEE HIS
  • GRANDSON MIKE DO SO WELL.
  • YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME
  • YASTRZEMSKI ON YOUR BACK AND
  • THERE IS A LOT OF PRESSURE ON
  • YOU.
  • HAROLD: A HARD LIFE.
  • IMAGINE PLAYING LITTLE LEAGUE,
  • GROWING UP IN NEW ENGLAND AS
  • CARL YASTRZEMSKI'S GRANDSON.
  • HEIDI: WE WANT TO TAKE HIM.
  • HAROLD: READY?
  • LET'S GRAB A BATS.
  • IT WILL BE SIMPLE.
  • I WILL FIND SOMEBODY'S SWING
  • PATH.
  • TAKE A PRACTICE SWING FOR ME AS
  • A WARM UP.
  • YOU KNOW WHEN GUYS GET INTO THE
  • BOX AND DO THIS.
  • HEIDI: BACK WAGGLE.
  • HAROLD: YES.
  • I WILL TRY TO FLIP SOME BALLS
  • AND SEE IF YOU ARE ABLE TO HIT
  • THAT.
  • WE WILL THROW IT IN YOUR LOOP
  • ZONE.
  • RIGHT THERE IN THE LOOP ZONE.
  • PERFECT.
  • THAT IS YOUR NATURAL SWING.
  • GIVE ME YOUR BACK WAGGLE AGAIN.
  • ANY KID TRYING TO FIGURE OUT
  • WHERE TO SWING, THAT IS WHAT TO
  • DO.
  • IT IS NATURAL FOR YOU.
  • HAROLD: I THINK NATURAL FEELS
  • LIKE THIS.
  • HEIDI: I WANT A BALL DOWN HERE
  • SOMEWHERE.
  • OTHER GUYS GO LIKE THIS.
  • THAT MEANS THEY WANT THE BALL UP
  • HERE.
  • YOU LIKE THE BALL THERE.
  • HAROLD: HAVE THEM DO THAT AND
  • THROW IT TO THE ZONE.
  • THEY ARE ABLE TO FOLLOW THE
  • BALL.
  • HEIDI: I THOUGHT IT WAS A LITTLE
  • LOW.
  • HAROLD: THERE YOU GO.
  • HEIDI: -- THERE YOU GO.
  • START BUILDING FROM THERE.
  • YOU SHOCK THEM.
  • GIVE THEM THAT CONFIDENCE.
  • HEIDI: PROBABLY DO NOT TRY THIS
  • IN HEELS.
  • HAROLD: DOING GOOD, I WILL GIVE
  • YOU THAT.
  • THE KEY IS, GET SOMEBODY, DO THE
  • BACK WAGGLE, LET THEM HIT THE
  • BALL, BUILD CONFIDENCE.
  • BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, YOUR HITTING
  • ROCKETS.
  • HEIDI: IF I CAN HIT A ROCKET
  • WITH A WIFFLE BALL, YOU CAN DO
  • ANYTHING.
  • WE WILL SEND IT OUT TO THE PARK.
  • >> KEVIN, THIS HAD TO BE A
  • UNIQUE DEADLINE PERIOD.
  • WHAT WAS IT LIKE TO BE A PART OF
  • THIS TEAM AS THINGS CHANGED THE
  • WAY THAT THE WAY THEY DID?
  • KEVIN: IT IS WHAT I ANTICIPATED
  • WHEN I GOT TRADED HERE.
  • IT WAS EARLY IN THE YEAR.
  • LEAVING A PLACE LIKE TORONTO --
  • I HAD SUCCESS THERE INDIVIDUALLY
  • AND TEAM-WISE.
  • BEING A PART OF A TEAM KNOWN FOR
  • A LOT OF WINNERS, WE KEEP A LOT
  • OF THE SAME GUYS.
  • A LOT OF PRETTY GOOD TEAMS WITH
  • PRETTY GOOD PITCHING.
  • WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO SCORE
  • AS MANY RUNS AS WE LIKE, BUT WE
  • UNDERSTAND HOW BIG THE SERIES
  • IS.
  • GUY: BUMGARNER, CERTAINLY.
  • WHAT IS YOUR PERSPECTIVE
  • STANDING BEHIND HIM AND WATCHING
  • HIM PITCH?
  • KEVIN: A LOT DIFFERENT THAN I
  • ANTICIPATED.
  • HE IS WHO HE IS.
  • ULTIMATE COMPETITOR, VERY
  • INTENSE WHEN HE PITCHES.
  • LOOK FORWARD TO EVERY FIVE DAYS
  • WHEN HE GOES OUT THERE, A VERY
  • GOOD CHANCE OF WINNING A
  • BASEBALL GAME.
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE TAKE FOR GRANTED
  • WHAT HE DOES EVERY TIME HE TAKES
  • THE MOUND.
  • GUY: YOU HAD SOME FUN WITH PABLO
  • SANDOVAL AND THE WAY HE DRESSED
  • THE OTHER DAY.
  • I WANT TO GO THROUGH THESE
  • PHOTOS AND GET YOUR BREAKDOWN.
  • FIRST UP, KEVIN PILLAR, THIS IS
  • YOU.
  • WHAT IS GOING ON?
  • KEVIN: I MADE MY BEST EFFORT.
  • I CANNOT SAY A LOT OF THAT STUFF
  • IS REAL.
  • I AM NOT AT A POINT IN MY CAREER
  • WHERE I CAN GO OUT AND BUY THIS
  • STUFF, BUT I WAS TRYING TO FIND
  • THE MOST EXPENSIVE THINGS YOU
  • COULD PUT ON YOUR BODY AND I
  • FELT THAT WAS GOOD ENOUGH FOR A
  • PABLO DAY.
  • I KIND OF SPEARHEADED THE IDEA
  • OF DOING IT.
  • IT STARTED WITH ASKING ONE GUY
  • AND ANOTHER GUY AND EVERYONE HAD
  • FUN WITH IT.
  • IT WAS FUN TO CHANGE OF THE WAY
  • WE TRAVEL ONCE IN A WHILE.
  • GUY: APPRECIATE THE TIME.
  • KEVIN: NO PROBLEM.
  • HEIDI: I LOVED THOSE OUTFITS.
  • LET'S GET UPDATES.
  • HAROLD: THIS CLUB IS ON FIRE.
  • ANOTHER HOME RUN, HIT TWO LAST
  • NIGHT.
  • HEIDI: TWO TONIGHT, TOO.
  • HAROLD: THAT IS THE FIRST ONE,
  • YOU CANNOT TELL.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • HEIDI: BUT HE HIT TWO IN THE
  • GAME.
  • I AM JUMPING THE SHARK.
  • HAROLD: IT WAS TWO.
  • NO, IT WAS ONE.
  • NOW IT IS TWO.
  • HEIDI: THE YANKEES DO NOT STOP
  • HITTING RUNS.
  • WE HAVE THE BRAVES AND THE
  • MARLINS.
  • HAROLD: KEUCHEL.
  • MOST PITCHERS, THIS IS ABOUT THE
  • SECOND MONTH OUT NOW, WHEN YOU
  • GET THE DEAD ARM.
  • THEY ARE TRYING TO PITCH THROUGH
  • IT.
  • HE IS PITCHING THROUGH IT IN
  • AUGUST.
  • EVERYBODY ELSE WILL BE GOING
  • THROUGH SIX WEEKS OF TRAINING
  • AND IN APRIL THEY MIGHT
  • STRUGGLE.
  • IF HE GETS THROUGH THE NEXT TWO
  • STARTS, I THINK WE WILL SEE
  • DALLAS KEUCHEL RETURN.
  • HEIDI: HE WILL BE MORE REFRESHED
  • THAN MOST GUYS.
  • WE HAVE ANGELS AND RED SOX HERE.
  • SOME ACTION IN BOSTON.
  • THAT IS A BALM TO CENTER FIELD.
  • -- BOMB TO CENTER FIELD.
  • HAROLD: RED SOX HAVE TO BE
  • DISAPPOINTED WHERE THEY ARE IN
  • THE STANDINGS.
  • HEIDI: A ROUGH STRETCH FOR THEM
  • FOR THE LAST 10 DAYS.
  • WHAT A CATCH.
  • HAROLD: CALHOUN.
  • THAT BALL GETS BY.
  • HEIDI: EVERYONE LOOKS AT LEFT
  • FIELD AT FENWAY PARK BECAUSE OF
  • THE GREAT MONSTER.
  • RIGHT FIELD IS ONE OF THE
  • TOUGHER FIELDS TO PLAY THERE.
  • HAROLD: CASTELLANOS HAS BEEN
  • GREAT FOR THE CUBS COMING FROM
  • DETROIT.
  • HE HIT TWO HOME RUNS.
  • HE WILL BE THE FIRST TO TELL
  • YOU, THOSE WERE CARRIED OUT IN
  • DETROIT.
  • HEIDI: HE WAS NOT TOO HAPPY WITH
  • IT.
  • HAROLD: JONATHAN LUCROY WITH
  • THIS R.B.I.
  • MARISNICK, THEN IT GOT BACK.
  • HE IS IN A GOOD SPOT.
  • HEIDI: SPEAKING OF TIGERS,
  • ROYALS HERE.
  • SECOND INNING NEVERTHELESS.
  • HAROLD: [INDISCERNIBLE]
  • IF YOU ARE THE TIGERS, AT LEAST.
  • HEIDI: THAT IS TRUE.
  • IT HAS BEEN A ROUGH SEASON FOR
  • THE ROYALS.
  • HAROLD: WE ARE IN BEAUTIFUL
  • STUDIO 42 WHERE WE DO DEMOS.
  • YOU CAN WATCH IS CATCHING GROUND
  • BALLS, FLY BALLS.
  • THIS IS AN ACTIVE, REAL STUDIO,
  • REAL BASEBALL.
  • IT IS AWESOME.
  • HEIDI: SPEAKING OF ACTIVE REAL
  • BALLPARK LET'S SEND IT BACK TO
  • ORACLE BALLPARK.
  • >> THANK YOU, SEAN ESTES
  • ALONGSIDE BEN DAVIS.
  • THE PHILLIES AND GIANTS, TWO
  • TEAMS SCUFFLING FROM AN
  • OFFENSIVE STANDPOINT.
  • IT WILL NOT GET EASIER WITH
  • MADISON BUMGARNER ON THE MOUND.
  • WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT BUMGARNER
  • ?
  • SHAWN: I THINK THE TEAM, BRUCE
  • BOCHY, AND THE FANS ARE HAPPY HE
  • IS STILL A GIANT.
  • THAT WAS BIG TALK AROUND THE
  • TRADE DEADLINE.
  • HE DID NOT GET TRADED.
  • THEY WERE DOING WELL AT THE
  • TIME, BUT SINCE THE TRADE
  • DEADLINE IT SEEMS THEY EXHALED
  • AND LOST THEIR EDGE A BIT.
  • THEIR OFFENSE HAS BEEN
  • STRUGGLING, STARTING PITCHING
  • HAS STRUGGLED.
  • WHEN YOU NEED ONE GAME TO GET
  • THINGS BACK ON TRACK YOU USUALLY
  • LEAN ON MADISON BUMGARNER.
  • HE WANTS TO BE A GIANT.
  • HE WANTS TO HELP THIS TEAM GET
  • BACK TO THE PLAYOFFS AND MAYBE
  • FINISH HIS CAREER HERE.
  • IT WILL BE A GOOD PITCHER'S
  • DUEL.
  • I LOVE SEEING THEM DUKE GET OUT.
  • BEN: IT WILL PLAY A MAJOR
  • FACTOR.
  • AARON NOLA HAS BEEN GREAT.
  • THE CURVEBALL SO MUCH BETTER FOR
  • HIM, BUT HE ALWAYS SAYS THAT IS
  • THE ONE PITCH HE CAN ALWAYS GO
  • TO.
  • I PERSONALLY THINK HIS FASTBALL
  • COMMAND HAS GOTTEN HIM BACK TO
  • WHERE HE WAS, FINISHING THIRD IN
  • THE CY YOUNG DEPARTMENT LAST
  • SEASON.
  • YOU LOOK AT THE BACK END OF
  • BULLPENS.
  • WE TALKED TO BRUCE BOCHY BEFORE
  • THE GAME ABOUT HOW HE HANDLES
  • THE BULLPEN.
  • I THINK YOU HAVE ONE OF THE BEST
  • PIECES IN WILL SMITH.
  • SHAWN: HE HAS BEEN TREMENDOUS
  • THIS YEAR, ANOTHER GUY TALKED
  • ABOUT BEING TRADED AT THE
  • DEADLINE BECAUSE OF HOW LOCKED
  • DOWN HE WAS IN THE NINTH INNING.
  • THOSE ARE THE TOUGHEST OUTS IN
  • BASEBALL.
  • HE HAS THE FASTBALL AND BREAKING
  • BALL TO GO WITH IT.
  • HE IS NOT AFRAID.
  • IF YOU CAN GET IT TO WILL SMITH,
  • AND THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO
  • DO THAT A LOT LATELY, HE HAS NOT
  • PITCHED IN FOUR OR FIVE DAYS,
  • BUT IF YOU CAN GET TO WILL
  • SMITH, THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE
  • YOU WILL WIN THAT GAME.
  • BEN: ALONGSIDE SHAWN ESTES I AM
  • BEN DAVIS.
  • BACK TO YOU.
  • HEIDI: THANK YOU, GENTLEMEN.
  • WE WILL PLAY A GAME CALLED LIKE
  • AND SUBSCRIBE OR NOT.
  • HAROLD: YOU ARE TEEING THE
  • QUESTIONS UP?
  • HEIDI: I AM THE GAME SHOW HOST,
  • THE BOB BARKER IN THIS
  • SITUATION.
  • MADISON BUMGARNER WILL RE-SIGN
  • WITH THE GIANTS?
  • THE SEASON?
  • HAROLD: I SAY NO.
  • HE IS 30.
  • I DO NOT SEE THE GIANTS GIVING
  • HIM WHAT HE IS LOOKING FOR, SIX
  • YEARS.
  • IT HAS BEEN A NICE RUN.
  • THEY FLIRTED WITH LETTING HIM GO
  • ON THE 31ST.
  • BUT HE WALKS AWAY ON HIS OWN,
  • THEY LOOK GOOD.
  • HEIDI: HE LOVES IT THERE AND
  • THEY LOVE HIM, THOUGH.
  • AARON NOLA WILL WIN A CY YOUNG
  • IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS.
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK?
  • HAROLD: I HAD TO THINK LONG AND
  • HARD, BUT I LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE
  • THAT.
  • YOU START LOOKING AT IS CONSTANT
  • -- COMPETITION.
  • SCHERZER, GIBRAN -- DEBRAUN,
  • STRASBURG.
  • HE IS THE UP-AND-COMING GUN.
  • HEIDI: NUMBER THREE, BUSTER
  • POSEY AS A HALL OF FAMER?
  • HAROLD: I SAY YES.
  • I LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE.
  • YOU LOOK AT WHAT HE IS GOING TO
  • PUT TOGETHER, THE BODYWORK BY
  • THE TIME HE IS DONE PLAYING, HE
  • WILL GO DOWN AS ONE OF THE GREAT
  • CATCHERS.
  • HEIDI: NUMBER FOUR, THE PHILLIES
  • WILL REACH THE POSTSEASON.
  • HAROLD: YES, I LIKE AND
  • SUBSCRIBE.
  • I DO.
  • HEIDI: THEY ARE CURRENTLY IN
  • CONTROL OF THE WILD-CARD SPOT.
  • HAROLD: THEY WILL GET IT.
  • I THINK TWO TEAMS WILL GET IT
  • FROM THE EAST.
  • HEIDI: YOU WERE DOWN ON THEM.
  • HAROLD: I WAS NOT.
  • I THINK THE METS ARE ON THEIR
  • HEELS, THOUGH.
  • HEIDI: YOU LIKED AND SUBSCRIBED
  • THREE OF THE FOUR.
  • I AM GOING TO SAY THERE IS A
  • CHANCE.
  • THE GIANTS LOVE HIM.
  • I KNOW THEY LOOK AT THINGS A
  • LITTLE DIFFERENTLY.
  • DON'T FORGET TO LIKE THE MLB
  • GAME OF THE WEEK LIVE ON YOUTUBE
  • AND SUBSCRIBE TO THE MLB
  • CHANNEL.
  • LET'S GO TO THE PARK.
  • >> ALL RIGHT, SCOOTER.
  • ARE YOU COMFORTABLE IN ORANGE
  • AND BLACK YET?
  • SCOOTER: YES, IN HIGH SCHOOL
  • THOSE WERE OUR COLORS.
  • I COULD GO BACK TO THE YEARBOOK
  • AND BRING UP HIGH SCHOOL.
  • THESE WERE OUR COLORS.
  • GUY: NINE DAYS AS A GIANT.
  • WHAT WAS THE EXPERIENCE OF BEING
  • TRADED ON JULY 31?
  • SCOOTER: IT WAS GREAT.
  • GOT TO KNOW THE GUYS.
  • FIRST PRIORITY FOR ME WAS TO GET
  • TO KNOW THE GUYS AND OPEN MYSELF
  • UP SO THEY COULD GET MOMENTUM.
  • NOW I FEEL LIKE I HAVE A GOOD
  • FEEL FOR EVERYBODY ON THE TEAM
  • AND NOW IT IS ABOUT BUSINESS AND
  • GOING OUT THERE, PREPARING
  • MYSELF TO BE READY TO PLAY.
  • SCOOTER: YOU CONTRIBUTED
  • IMMEDIATELY, THE HOME RUN
  • AGAINST THE ROCKIES.
  • A BIG ONE, YOU HAD BEEN BATTLING
  • INJURY.
  • DID THAT TAKE THE WEIGHT OFF
  • YOUR SHOULDERS?
  • GUY: A LITTLE BIT.
  • IT IS ALWAYS NICE TO GET THE
  • FIRST HOME RUN OUT OF THE WAY.
  • SEEING A ZERO IN THAT CATEGORY
  • CAN BE TOUGH.
  • ONCE YOU GET THE FIRST ONE OUT
  • OF THE WAY, THEY SEEM TO BE
  • PILING ON.
  • SCOOTER: LET'S LOOK AT THIS
  • GLOVE.
  • THIS WAS ALL RED AND NOW IT IS
  • BLACK.
  • GUY: ONE OF THE CLUBHOUSE GUYS
  • SHARPENED IT FOR ME, WHICH IS
  • NICE.
  • IT LOOKS A LOT BETTER.
  • THE RED WAS NOT FITTING IN.
  • I THINK NOW THERE IS STILL A
  • LITTLE RED, BUT WITH A BLACK IT

  • RICH: AARON NOLA HAS TAKEN THE
  • ROLE OF ACE THE HEART.
  • BEN: THIS YEAR EARLY ON IN THE
  • SEASON HE DID NOT HAVE A GOOD
  • FEEL FOR THE BASEBALL.
  • IT IS TURNED THE HEAT UP AND THE
  • CURVEBALL IS HEATING UP AS WELL.
  • HE IS MAKING A CONCERTED EFFORT
  • TO THROW THE PITCH SLOWER.
  • THE SLOWER HE THROWS A, THE
  • BETTER DEPTH HE GETS ON THE
  • CURVEBALL.
  • THE FASTBALL COMMAND HAS BEEN
  • EXCEPTIONAL.
  • RICH: WHILE THERE IS NOSTALGIA
  • FOR THE GIANTS FANS AND
  • BUMGARNER, THEY WANT TO WIN.
  • THIS IS A CRUCIAL SERIES.
  • SHAWN: IT IS CRUCIAL.
  • WHEN YOU JUST GOT SWEPT BY THE

  • WELL.
  • RICH: I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO
  • THE MATCHUP BETWEEN BUMGARNER
  • AND HARPER.
  • HARPER WILL SEE A STEADY DOSE OF
  • BREAKING BALLS.
  • BUMGARNER THROWS AT 70% BREAKING
  • BALLS.
  • HARPER HAS STRUGGLED WITH
  • BREAKING BALLS.
  • HIS AVERAGE AGAINST OFF-SPEED
  • PITCHES IS DOWN.
  • IF YOU WILL BEAT BUMGARNER, IT
  • WILL HAVE TO BE ON SOMETHING
  • OFFSPEED.
  • RICH: FAST PITCHING MATCHUP IN
  • THE MAJOR LEAGUES TONIGHT.
  • BRYCE HARPER IS GOING TO DIG IN
  • AGAINST MADISON BUMGARNER.
  • HARPER, THE PHILLIES, ON THE

  • STRAIGHTAWAY CENTER FIELD.
  • ALMOST OFF THAT BACK WALL.
  • MIDDLE IN.
  • HE CANNOT GET AWAY WITH MIDDLE
  • IN TO THOSE RIGHT-HANDED
  • HITTERS.
  • >> HE IS DRIVING AWAY AND HE
  • MISSED.
  • THE CROSS SEEMER IS PRETTY
  • STRAIGHT.
  • >> THE 0-2 TO BOGAERTS.
  • SOCKED INTO RIGHT FIELD.
  • CALHOUN ON THE MOVE.
  • HE DIVES, WHAT A PLAY.
  • HE CAUGHT THE BALL, HELD ON,
  • ROBS XANDER BOGAERTS OF EXTRA
  • BASES WITH A SUPERMAN DIVE.
  • >> YOU HIT IT ON THE BUTTON,

  • GUY: HEY TO EVERYBODY.
  • RHYS HOSKINS, ONE OF THE BEST
  • PLAYERS IN BASEBALL SINCE HE
  • DEBUTED ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO HAD
  • ONE COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP COMING
  • OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL IN
  • SACRAMENTO.
  • REGGIE CHRISTENSEN AT NEARBY SAC
  • STATE IS THE ONLY MAN THAT
  • OFFERED HIM THAT SCHOLARSHIP.
  • HIS FAMILY AND A BUS OF OTHER
  • SAC STATE PLAYERS ARE HERE
  • TONIGHT.
  • THEY TOLD ME RHYS WENT LARGELY
  • UNDISCOVERED BECAUSE HE PLAYED
  • THREE SPORTS.
  • ONCE I GOT HIM INTO SAN
  • FRANCISCO STATE HIS FRESHMAN
  • YEAR, THEY KNEW QUICKLY THEY HAD
  • A PRO.
  • RHYS GIVES HIS PHONE NUMBER TO
  • ANYONE DRAFTED OUT OF SACRAMENTO
  • STATE.
  • HE HAS BECOME CLOSE TO ONE OF
  • CHRISTENSEN'S SON, WHO IS
  • NAMEDRHYS.
  • HE IS A BIG GIANTS FANS.
  • HE HAS NOT HAD A LOT OF SUCCESS
  • AGAINST THE MAN ON THE MOUNTAIN
  • TODAY.
  • IT IS MADISON BUMGARNER WHO WAS
  • HIS FAVORITE PLAYER WHEN RHYS
  • WAS PLAYING SACRAMENTO STATE.
  • HE WILL TRY TO PLAY THAT AGAINST
  • HIS FAVORITE CHILDHOOD PLAYER
  • TONIGHT.
  • RICH: THAT IS PRETTY COOL.
  • I BET THAT BUMGARNER POSTER WAS
  • PROMINENT.
  • BUMGARNER FINISHING HIS WARM UP
  • PROCESS.
  • THE PHILLIES LINEUP LOOKS LIKE
  • THIS.
  • DROPPED TWO STRAIGHT, 4-6.
  • A TOUGH SPOT TO FILL SINCE THE
  • LOSS OF ANDREW MCCUTCHEN.
  • HARPER SLOTTED THIRD.
  • JEAN SEGURA BATTING CLEANUP.
  • JAY BRUCE IS BACK.
  • SCOTT KINGERY AT SECOND, SEAN
  • RODRIGUEZ AT THIRD.
  • ANDREW KNAPP GIVES REALMUTO A

  • SO, SHAWN ESTES, WHAT WILL WE
  • SEE TONIGHT FROM MADISON
  • BUMGARNER?
  • SHAWN: SLIDER, CURVEBALL,
  • CHANGEUP.
  • HE RELIES ON THE FASTBALL-SLIDER
  • COMBINATION.
  • HE WILL THROW A FASTBALL IF HE
  • IS FEELING GOOD ABOUT IT.
  • HE IS ALMOST A STRIKEOUT AN
  • INNING.
  • HE DOES NOT WALK GUYS.
  • HIS FASTBALL AROUND 90 MILES AN
  • HOUR.
  • HE WILL THROW STRIKES.
  • DOES NOT WALK A LOT OF GUYS.
  • RICH: IS THE PHILLIES LINEUP
  • GOING TO HAVE TO APPROACH HIM
  • WITH CAUTION, BUMGARNER IF, RHYS
  • HAS SEEN HIM, SOME SUCCESS.
  • BEN: JUST DON'T SWING AT A
  • STRIKE, YOU CANNOT SWING AT BOTH
  • SITES.
  • PICK ONE SIDE, WHETHER IN OR
  • OUTSIDE.
  • RICH: BOTH THESE TEAMS ARE
  • LOOKING FOR MOMENTUM.
  • GIANTS HAD IT THROUGHOUT JULY.
  • PHILLIES HAD IT GOING INTO
  • ARIZONA BUT DROPPED 2-3.
  • HERE TONIGHT ON A BEAUTIFUL SAN
  • FRANCISCO NIGHT, MADISON
  • BUMGARNER MISSES DOWN LOW AND WE
  • ARE UNDERWAY.
  • ROMAN QUINN, BRYCE HARPER.
  • HE CAN RUN.
  • ONE OF THREE OR FOUR GUYS THE
  • PHILLIES HAVE PLUGGED IN AND OUT
  • OF THAT LEADOFF SPOT.
  • KAPLER TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT
  • MIX.
  • COUNT A BALL AND A STRIKE.
  • RICH: IT HAS NOT BEEN EASY FOR
  • ANDREW MCCUTCHEN.
  • >> SINCE MCCUTCHEON WENT DOWN,
  • THE ON BASES .275.
  • IT IS TOUGH TO MAKE A LIVING IN
  • THE BIG LEAGUES WITH A .275 ON
  • BASE.
  • IN THE AIR, BRANDON BELT A LOOK.
  • >> NEXT WE CAN SEE EARLY,
  • BUMGARNER ATTACKING THE STRIKE
  • ZONE.
  • HE TRIES TO GET TWO STRIKES
  • WITHIN THE FIRST THREE PITCHES.
  • HE IS VERY EFFICIENT.
  • QUINN'S JOB IS TO SEE AS MANY
  • PITCHES AS HE CAN.
  • YOU MENTIONED MCCUTCHEON, THAT
  • IS WHAT HE DID SO WELL AS A
  • LEADOFF HITTER.
  • THEY ARE LOOKING FOR THAT GUY.
  • >> BUMGARNER HAS STUBBORNLY SAID
  • TO THOSE WHO SAY HE IS NOT THE
  • SAME GUY, POSTSEASON HERO, HE
  • FEELS HE IS AND SOME NUMBERS
  • BACK THAT UP.
  • HIS STRIKEOUT RATE IS HIS BEST
  • IN FOUR YEARS, HIS CHASE RATE IS
  • THE FOURTH BEST IN BASEBALL.
  • QUINN IN THE AIR.
  • THAT WOULD BE STEPHEN VOGT OUT
  • THERE TONIGHT.
  • HAD NOT BEEN OUT A WHOLE LOT.
  • HE MAKES THE CATCH.
  • >> BRUCE BOCHY TRYING TO GET HIS
  • BAT IN THE LINEUP BECAUSE HE HAS
  • BEEN SO SOLID.
  • HE DOES GET ANOTHER -- ANOTHER
  • START.
  • KEVIN PILLAR IS A HUMAN
  • HIGHLIGHT FILM.
  • MIKE YASTRZEMSKI HAS BEEN A NICE
  • ADDITION FOR THE GIANTS.
  • SCOOTER GENNETT, THE STAR AT
  • SECOND.
  • LONGORIA AT THIRD.
  • BUSTER POSEY AND MADISON
  • BUMGARNER.
  • HOSKINS' HERO GROWING UP WAS
  • THIS GUY.
  • A LOT OF FOLKS FROM SACRAMENTO
  • TO SEE HIM.
  • 92.
  • IT IS 0-1.
  • >> WE TALKED ABOUT THE OPEN,
  • BUMGARNER USING HIS ARM SIDE TO
  • RIGHT-HANDERS.
  • HE DOES LIKE TO GET GUYS OUT.
  • YOU CAN SEE HIM ESTABLISHING HIS
  • GLOVE SIDE.
  • >> HIS FASTBALL VELOCITY ON
  • AVERAGE SITS AT 91.5 MILES AN
  • HOUR, WHICH IS THE BEST IT HAS
  • BEEN IN FIVE YEARS.
  • HOSKINS CENTER FIELD.
  • PILLAR.
  • A LONG OUT NUMBER TWO.
  • HERE COMES HARPER.
  • SHAWN: HOME RUN AT CITIZENS
  • BANK, BEN?
  • BEN: NO.
  • THIS WIND BLOWING, MAYBE ON A
  • HOT SUMMER DAY THE BALL LEAVES
  • FROM PHILLY.
  • HARPER'S PERCEPTION HERE IN SAN
  • FRANCISCO, PRETTY TEPID, WITH
  • GOOD REASON.
  • HE HAS HURT THE GIANTS IN
  • POSTSEASONS.
  • ALTHOUGH HE IS NOT HERE, HUNTER
  • STRICKLAND.
  • THAT INFAMOUS BEATING WHICH
  • PRECIPITATED A BRAWL, WHICH WAS
  • MORE COSTLY TO THE GIANTS IN THE
  • AFTERMATH.
  • HARPER HOMERED TWICE AGAINST
  • STRICKLAND IN THE POSTSEASON,
  • WHEN HE WAS WASHINGTON NATIONAL.
  • SHAWN: COINCIDENTALLY HUNTER
  • STRICKLAND IS NOW A NATIONAL AND
  • HE WAS HERE JUST OVER THE
  • WEEKEND FACING THE GIANTS.
  • I AM SURE THE THAT MATCHUP WILL
  • HAPPEN AGAIN AT SOME POINT THIS
  • YEAR BASED ON THE AMOUNT OF
  • GAMES THEY PLAY AGAINST EACH
  • OTHER.
  • BEN: HARPER TAKES IT OUTSIDE.
  • HIS NUMBERS, AND SOME PEOPLE SAY
  • HE IS HAVING A DOWN YEAR, PRETTY
  • GOOD.
  • .371 ON BASE, .461 SLUG.
  • RICH: I SAW A STAT THAT HE SAW
  • THE LEAST AMOUNT OF STRIKES IN
  • THE STRIKE ZONE IN BASEBALL.
  • SHAWN: YOU THINK ABOUT WHO HE IS
  • SURROUNDED BY IN THE LINEUP.
  • >> DEFINITELY HE IS THAT GUY.
  • AND HE HAS A GOOD EYE.
  • WE SAW HIM ASKING ABOUT THE
  • FIRST PITCH WHICH WAS INDEED OFF
  • THE PLATE.
  • HE GOT THE CALL.
  • IF HE CONTINUES TO GET THE CALL,
  • IT WILL BE A LONG NIGHT FOR THE
  • PHILLIES HITTERS.
  • BEN: JAY BRUCE IS BACK IN THE
  • LINEUP.
  • J.T. REALMUTO GETTING THE NIGHT
  • OFF.
  • THE HOPE IS HARPER GETS HELP
  • AROUND HIM.
  • THE REST OF AUGUST AND INTO

  • THIS GUY AT THE TRADE DEADLINE
  • AND GIVE THE GIANTS WHATEVER
  • THEY WANT.
  • IF YOU ARE GOING TO GET INTO THE
  • PLAYOFFS, HE IS THE ONE YOU WANT
  • TO GIVE THE BALL TO IN GAME ONE,
  • GAME FIVE, OR WHATEVER IT TAKES.
  • HE IS THE GUY YOU WANT ON THE
  • MOUND.
  • HE SAID SOMETHING IN THAT GAME
  • SEVEN WHEN HE WENT DOWN TO THE
  • BULLPEN.
  • HE GOT UP TO WARM UP, THIRD,
  • FOURTH INNING.
  • HE LOOKED OVER TO THE RELIEVERS
  • AND HE SAID, KEEP YOUR JACKETS
  • ON.
  • PUT YOUR GLOVES AWAY.
  • YOU ARE NOT GOING TO PITCH
  • TODAY.
  • RICH: SEAN RODRIGUEZ AT THE
  • PLATE, BOTTOM THIRD OF THE ORDER
  • FOR THE PHILLIES.
  • THREE FLYBALL OUTS IN THE FIRST.
  • THREE GROUND BALL OUTS IN THE
  • SECOND.
  • ANDREW KNAPP AND AARON NOLA TO
  • HOLLOW.
  • -- TO FOLLOW.
  • OF COURSE, IN THIS FINAL MONTH
  • AND A HALF, GIANT FANS MAY BE
  • SEEING THE LAST OF HIM GARDNER
  • IN A GIANTS UNIFORM.
  • THEY ARE CERTAINLY SEEING THE
  • LAST OF BRUCE BOCHY.
  • THERE IS A TERRIFIC ARTICLE IN
  • "THE ATHLETIC" ABOUT THAT
  • CONVERSATION IN THE BULLPEN IN
  • KANSAS CITY BETWEEN BOCHY AND
  • BUMGARNER AND THEIR
  • RELATIONSHIP.
  • AS A MANAGER, AS A PITCHER, THEY
  • HAVE BEEN LINKED EVER SINCE
  • BUMGARNER WAS A ROOKIE AND
  • HELPED LEAD THE GIANTS TO THAT
  • 2010 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP.
  • ANOTHER STRIKEOUT, AND ANDREW
  • KNAPP COMES UP.
  • SHAWN: THERE IS NO HAPPIER
  • PERSON IN THE DUGOUT AFTER JULY
  • 31 WHEN HE WAS STILL A GIANT
  • THAN BRUCE BOCHY, WHO IS
  • RETIRING THIS YEAR.
  • REGARDLESS OF WHAT HAPPENS WITH
  • MADISON AFTER THIS SEASON, HE
  • WANTED TO FINISH THE SEASON WITH
  • MADISON AND MAKE A RUN.
  • I THINK EVERYBODY WOULD HAVE
  • FELT THEY WERE THROWING IN THE
  • TOWEL IF HE WOULD HAVE BEEN
  • TRADED.
  • BEN: IT IS HARD TO GO OUT AND
  • GET A STARTING PITCHER.
  • YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP THE FARM TO
  • GET HIM, AND HE IS ONLY GOING TO
  • HELP YOU EVERY FIFTH DAY.
  • FROM THAT ASPECT, I CAN
  • UNDERSTAND WHY A G.M. WOULD NOT
  • GO OUT AND MAKE THAT MOVE.
  • RICH: I SAW TWO TEAMS YESTERDAY,
  • THE CARDINALS AND THE DODGERS,
  • THAT MANY PEOPLE FELT SHOULD
  • HAVE MADE A MAJOR MOVE.
  • CERTAINLY FOR ROTATION HELP.
  • IN THE AIR OUT INTO SHALLOW
  • CENTER, AND GENNETT IS THERE.
  • BUT I HAVE HEARD GENERAL
  • MANAGERS TALK ABOUT THE
  • ENVIRONMENT IN BASEBALL, AND
  • THIS YEAR WAS ON -- WAS ODD
  • WITH THE ONE DEADLINE.
  • YOU CAN NORMALLY AT SOMEBODY IF
  • YOU PICK UP MONEY IN AUGUST.
  • THAT IS GONE NOW.
  • AND THE FACT THAT THERE ARE SO
  • MANY TEAMS THAT ARE REBUILDING,
  • RELOADING, OR HAVE A SYSTEM FULL
  • OF DEEP YOUNG PROSPECT.
  • -- YOUNG PROSPECTS.
  • THERE IS A HIGHER VALUE ON
  • CONTROLLING YOUNG TALENT IN
  • BASEBALL.
  • MAKING A TRADE LIKE THAT NO
  • LONGER IS JUST EASY.
  • BEN: IF YOU HAVE AN ORGANIZATION
  • LIKE THE PHILLIES -- I AM NOT
  • TAKING ANYTHING AWAY FROM THE
  • PHILLIES, BUT OBVIOUSLY THERE
  • FROM SYSTEM IS NOT WHERE THEY
  • NEEDED TO BE.
  • THE DODGERS KEEP REPLENISHING.
  • THE YANKEES REPLENISH.
  • IF THEY WERE TO GO OUT AND GET A
  • COUPLE OF GUYS THEY WOULD LOVE
  • TO GO OUT AND GET -- WHY NOT
  • GIVE THOSE CERTAIN GUYS UP?
  • IF YOU HAVE A HANDFUL OF THEM,
  • YOU DO IT.
  • WHY GET A RENTAL FOR A MONTH AND
  • A HALF THAT IS ONLY GOING TO
  • HELP YOU EVERY FIFTH DAY?
  • I REALLY GET IT.
  • THE PHILLIES, COULD THEY HAVE
  • USED MAD BUM?
  • OBVIOUSLY.
  • THAT IS A NO-BRAINER.
  • SHAWN: LIKE YOU SAID, BEN, WITH
  • ORGANIZATIONS THAT DO HAVE A LOT
  • OF PROSPECTS THAT THEY CAN KEEP
  • PUMPING OUT, I AM SURPRISED THAT
  • THE DODGERS OR THE YANKEES DID
  • NOT MAKE ANY MOVES AT ALL.
  • BEN: I AM REALLY SURPRISED THE
  • DODGERS.
  • SHAWN: NOT BUMGARNER, BUT
  • ANYBODY.
  • BEN: I AM REALLY SURPRISED THE
  • DODGERS DID NOT GET VAZQUEZ FROM
  • THE PIRATES.
  • THAT WOULD HAVE PUT THEM ALL
  • WHOLE DIFFERENT LEVEL.
  • SHAWN: KENLEY JANSEN IS NOT THE
  • SAME KENLEY JANSEN WE ARE USED
  • TO SEEING.
  • BEN: NO, HE IS NOT.
  • SHAWN: YOU GET ANOTHER CLOSER TO
  • SET UP KENLEY, OR IF THINGS GO
  • SOUTH, HE IS A GUY YOU COULD GO
  • TO.
  • RICH: BUMGARNER THROWS IT BY
  • AARON NOLA.
  • MADISON BUMGARNER HAS FACED
  • NINE.
  • HE HAS RETIRED NINE.
  • IN THE BOTTOM OF THE THIRD IN
  • SAN FRANCISCO, GREAT BALLPARK,
  • GREAT CROWD, AND A BIG, BIG FOUR
  • GAME SERIES, GIANTS AND
  • PHILLIES.
  • FINAL WEEKEND FOR BRUCE BOCHY IN
  • SAN DIEGO.
  • OF COURSE, THAT IS WHERE HE
  • STARTED.
  • HE WAS A TWO-TIME MANAGER OF THE
  • YEAR.
  • LET'S TAKE A WALK DOWN MEMORY
  • LANE WITH BOATS -- BOCHE.
  • >> BRUCE BOCHY IN HIS FINAL
  • SERIES AS THE GIANTS MANAGER,
  • COMING BACK TO PETCO PARK.
  • 951 WINS, THE MOST IN PADRES
  • HISTORY.
  • GOING TO THE GIANTS IN WINNING
  • OVER A THOUSAND GAMES IN THE
  • REGULAR SEASON.
  • 13 SEASONS WITH THE GIANTS.
  • >> THE GIANTS AND BOCHY -- HE IS
  • OUR FAVORITE MANAGER, YOU KNOW?
  • HE IS AWESOME, AND I HATE TO SEE
  • HIM GO.
  • >> IT IS POIGNANT.
  • IT IS BITTERSWEET.
  • I AM GLAD HE IS COMING BACK TO
  • SUCH A WARM WELCOME.
  • >> WE WISH HIM WELL, WISH HIM
  • OFF.
  • >> IT IS A CELEBRATION FOR THIS
  • SQUAD WE WATCHED.
  • THEY FEEL LIKE FAMILY.
  • AND BOCHY IS LIKE OUR DAD.
  • >> HE IS JUST A WONDERFUL
  • MANAGER AND I THINK IT IS GOING
  • TO BE VERY MISSED.
  • >> THANK YOU FOR THE MEMORIES.
  • THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU
  • HAVE DONE.
  • WE APPRECIATE IT AND WE'RE GOING
  • TO MISS YOU.
  • >> MANAGING HIS FINAL GAME AT
  • PETCO PARK, LET'S HEAR IT ONE
  • MORE TIME FOR BRUCE BOCHY.
  • >> AND HE GOT HIM.
  • THAT'S THE BALLGAME.
  • >> NICE WORK.
  • NICE WORK.
  • RICH: SHAWN ESTES AND BEN DAVIS,
  • BOTH OF YOU GUYS HAVE HAD
  • EXPERIENCE WITH BRUCE BOCHY.
  • WHAT MAKES HIM DIFFERENT FROM
  • OTHER MAJOR LEAGUE MANAGERS,
  • THAT HE WAS ABLE TO GO 25 YEARS,
  • HAVE SUCCESS IN BOTH SAN DIEGO
  • AND THREE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
  • HERE?
  • SHAWN: TO ME THE BIGGEST THING
  • IS HE IS A GREAT ON-FIELD
  • MANAGER.
  • I THINK THAT GOES WITHOUT
  • SAYING.
  • HE HAS BEEN TREMENDOUS AT
  • HANDLING A BULLPEN, JUST BEING
  • ABLE TO NAVIGATE A GAME ON THE
  • FIELD.
  • I THINK WHERE HIS VALUE COMES IS
  • HIS PRESENCE IN THE CLUBHOUSE,
  • THE FACT THAT I HAVE NEVER HEARD
  • A NEGATIVE RING SAID ABOUT HIM
  • FROM A PAST PLAYER OR A PRESENT
  • PLAYER.
  • HE NEVER THROWS HIS PLAYERS
  • UNDER THE BUS TO THE MEDIA, TO
  • THEIR FACE.
  • HE MAY BE HARD ON HIS COACHES,
  • BECAUSE HE DEMANDS A LOT OF
  • HIMSELF AND A MAN'S A LOT OF HIS
  • COACHES, BUT HE WILL NEVER THROW
  • A PLAYER UNDER THE BUS.
  • TO HAVE THE COMBINATION OF ON
  • FIELD AND OFF THE FIELD, THAT IS
  • WHAT MAKES HIM SO GOOD.
  • BEN: I THINK IT IS HIS HONESTY.
  • HE IS HONEST AND UPFRONT WITH
  • LAWYERS.
  • THERE IS A SITUATION A COUPLE
  • YEARS AGO -- ONE SUMMER, BARRY
  • BONDS HIT 12 HOME RUNS WHEN I
  • WAS CATCHING.
  • 12.
  • I WENT INTO HIS OFFICE HALFWAY
  • THROUGH ENDS -- AND I SAID, WE
  • CANNOT GIVE HIM A STRIKE.
  • HE SAID, I APPRECIATE YOUR
  • CONCERN.
  • I AM NOT PLAYING BASEBALL LIKE
  • THAT.
  • RICH: LINE DRIVE INTO RIGHT
  • FIELD OFF THE BAT OF CRAWFORD.
  • YOU LOVE TO SEE CRAWFORD BARREL
  • ONE UP.
  • HE HAS BEEN STRUGGLING OVER THE
  • LAST DOZEN GAMES.
  • LEADOFF HITTER.
  • HERE COMES BUMGARNER.
  • BEN: AND I LOOKED AT HIM AND
  • SAID, YOU ARE THE SKIPPER.
  • AND I JUST WALKED OUT OF HIS
  • OFFICE.
  • THAT IS THE WAY HE WAS.
  • YOU COULD CALL HIM OLD-SCHOOL.
  • YOU COULD CALL HIM WHATEVER YOU
  • WANT.
  • HOW HE HANDLED HIS PLAYERS AND
  • THE WAY HE WENT ABOUT THE GAME
  • OF BASEBALL, SECOND TO NONE.
  • AND I PLAYED FOR LOU PINIELLA.
  • I PLAYED FOR OZZIE GUILLEN.
  • THERE WAS SOMETHING ABOUT BRUCE
  • BOCHY THAT WAS VERY ENDEARING
  • FROM A PLAYER STANDPOINT.
  • ASK ME A QUESTION TODAY ABOUT
  • HOW HE HANDLED THE BULLPEN.
  • HALF-HOUR BEFORE THE GAME, I
  • STARTED TO GO THROUGH THE GAME
  • IN MY HEAD.
  • NO ONE HANDLES A BULLPEN BETTER
  • THAN THAT MAN, RIGHT THERE.
  • RICH: CRAWFORD AT FIRST.
  • IN MANY NATIONAL LEAGUE CITIES,
  • YOU GET THE NUMBER EIGHT HITTER
  • ON, THAT IS GOING TO BE A
  • PITCHER'S DUEL.
  • BUT THIS IS MADISON BUMGARNER.
  • HIS BATTING PRACTICE SHOWS ARE
  • LEGENDARY, AND MUST-CTV --
  • MUST-SEE T.V.
  • BEN: HE DOES NOT GET CHEATED,
  • THAT'S FOR SURE.
  • HE WILL LET IT RIP.
  • WHAT IS INTERESTING IS NOLA HAS
  • ALREADY THROWN TWO FASTBALLS,
  • WHICH IS USUALLY TO OUR
  • FASTBALLS THAN HE SEASON AND
  • AT-BAT.
  • HE GETS A LOT OF BREAKING BALLS
  • FROM AN OPPOSING PITCHER JUST
  • BASED ON HIS REPUTATION.
  • AND YOU ARE RIGHT, 99% OF THE
  • PITCHERS OUT HERE ARE GOING TO
  • BE BUMPING RIGHT HERE.
  • RICH: NOW HE SHORTENS.
  • THERE IS THE CURVEBALL.
  • BEN: I THINK A LOT HAS TO DO
  • WITH WHO IS ON THE MOUND.
  • RICH: IT LOOKS LIKE BOCHE GAVE
  • HIM A SWING.
  • ONCE HE GAVE HIM A SWING, IT WAS
  • TIME TO BUNT.
  • SHAWN: I AM NOT SURE WHAT IS
  • GOING ON.
  • HE STARTED A BUNT.
  • THEN HE WAS GOING TO SWING.
  • SWINGING AT TWO STRIKES, I AM
  • ASSUMING.
  • HE DOES NOT HAVE MANY SAC BUNTS
  • IN HIS CAREER.
  • BUCKHEAD HIM HIT IN A GAME HE
  • PITCHED, IN AN AMERICAN LEAGUE
  • GAME IN OAKLAND.
  • HE DID NOT USE THE D.H.
  • RICH: HOW DOES THAT MAKE THE
  • BENCH PLAYERS FEEL?
  • SHAWN: I REMEMBER AT THE TIME
  • TALKING ABOUT IT LIKE, HOW DO
  • YOU FEEL ON THE BENCH?
  • RICH: LAST FIVE YEARS, THREE
  • SACRIFICE BUNTS.
  • SHAWN: HE IS PROBABLY GOING TO
  • GET A CURVEBALL HERE.
  • HE GOT A PIECE OF IT.
  • MEDICINE'S BEST CHANCE WAS WHEN
  • HE WAS GOING TO SWING, 1-0
  • COUNT.
  • I DON'T THINK HE IS GOING TO GET
  • MANY PITCHES TO HIT NOW.
  • RICH: HE HAS 18 HOME RUNS.
  • IN THIS ERA, WHEN THE TOP HOME
  • RUN HITTING PITCHER IS CARLOS
  • ZAMBRANO, 24.
  • BEN: WHO IS A BETTER HITTER,
  • GREINKE OR BUMGARNER?
  • SHAWN: PURE HITTER, PROBABLY
  • GREINKE.
  • AS FAR AS POWER GOES, THIS GUY.
  • GREINKE WILL SHOOT IT THE OTHER
  • WAY.
  • RICH: ANOTHER BREAKING BALL, AND
  • IT IS IN.
  • THIS IS TURNING INTO A NICE
  • AT-BAT.
  • BUMGARNER, IT IS 2-2.
  • SHAWN: HE WILL GIVE YOU A TWO
  • STRIKE APPROACH AND SURF IF THE
  • OTHER WAY.
  • HE IS A GOOD HITTER.
  • BUMS IS MORE OF A POWER GUY,
  • LIKE A LOT OF THE HITTERS THESE
  • GAYS -- THESE DAYS.
  • TRIES TO HIT A HOME RUN OR HE
  • STRIKES OUT.
  • HE IS DEFINITELY THE DEFINITION
  • OF A PULL HITTER.
  • YOU WON'T SEE HIM GOING THE
  • OTHER WAY.
  • RICH: 2-2.
  • THAT BREAKING BALL HUNG A BIT.
  • SHAWN: I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF
  • AT-BATS FROM BUMGARNER.
  • HE WILL MAKE A PITCHER WORK.
  • HE WILL SEAL OF PITCHES.
  • HE WILL FOLLOW PITCHES.
  • HE MAY STRIKE OUT, BUT HE WILL
  • BATTLE.
  • RICH: IF YOU WERE AN AMERICAN
  • LEAGUE PITCHER, DO YOU THINK AN
  • AMERICAN LEAGUE MANAGER MIGHT
  • USE HIM AS A D.H.?
  • OBVIOUSLY THERE IS A GUY WITH
  • THE ANGELS THAT -- SHOHEI OHTANI
  • IS ABLE TO DO THAT.
  • BEN: I DON'T THINK SO, NOT AS A
  • D.H.
  • RICH: 2-2.
  • BEN: BUT SOMEONE LIKE LORENZEN
  • WITH THE REDS, HE HAS BEEN
  • PLAYING RIGHT FIELD.
  • HE HAS SOME THUMP AND HIS BAT AS
  • WELL.
  • RICH: NO SWING.
  • SHAWN: GOOD CALL.
  • I DON'T THINK HE D.H. IS IN THE
  • AMERICAN LEAGUE. SO MANY GOOD
  • HITTERS IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE
  • THAT JUST D.H..
  • RICH: I AM NOT SAYING ON A
  • REGULAR BASIS.
  • EVERY NOW AND THEN, WILL HIM IN
  • THERE.
  • SWING AND A FOUL TIP, I THINK.
  • HE DID GET A PIECE OF IT.
  • BEN: DID YOU LIKE PITCHING
  • INTERLEAGUE GAMES IN AN AMERICAN
  • LEAGUE CITY SAY YOU DID NOT HAVE
  • TO HIT?
  • SHAWN: I HATED IT.
  • I LOVED TO HIT.
  • IT KEPT ME IN THE GAME.
  • I LOVED TO BE ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE
  • AT THE PLATE.
  • I WORKED HARD AT IT.
  • I TOOK A LOT OF B.P..
  • I WORKED ON BUNTING AND I LIKE
  • TO BE PART OF THE GAME.
  • I WAS KIND OF BORED WHEN I
  • PITCHED IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE.
  • RICH: HOW MANY CAREER HOME RUNS?
  • SHAWN: FOUR.
  • BEN: THAT'S PRETTY GOOD!
  • SHAWN: YOU DON'T FORGET THOSE.
  • RICH: CRAWFORD AT FIRST.
  • NOBODY OUT.
  • NOLA, AS BEN DAVIS POINTED OUT,
  • IS QUICK TO GO OVER TO FIRST TO
  • SHUT DOWN THE RUNNING GAME.
  • THE GIANTS ARE NOT THE SPEEDIEST
  • OF TEAMS.
  • SHAWN: I THINK I HAD THE ONLY
  • GRAND SLAM IN SAN FRANCISCO
  • GIANTS HISTORY FOR A WHILE.
  • THIS GUY HIT TWO OF THEM IN ONE
  • YEAR.
  • HEY, THANKS.
  • CAN I HAVE MY NAME ON ANYTHING
  • ANYMORE?
  • RICH: CRAWFORD RUNNING.
  • BUMGARNER HITS IT INTO LEFT
  • FIELD.
  • A BASE HIT.
  • HOLD THERE.
  • WHAT A GREAT AT-BAT.
  • A NINE PITCH AT-BAT AGAINST ONE
  • OF THE BEST PITCHERS IN THE
  • NATIONAL LEAGUE, AND AARON NOLA.
  • -- IN AARON NOLA.
  • BEN: I AM 42 YEARS OLD AND I
  • HAVE BEEN ANTI-THE D.H. IN THE
  • NATIONAL LEAGUE FOREVER, AND
  • THIS YEAR I STARTED TO TURN A
  • LITTLE BIT.
  • WE ARE SEEING SOME AT-BATS WITH
  • THE PITCHER PUTS HIS BAT ON HIS
  • SHOULDER, TAKES THREE PITCHES,
  • AND WALKS BACK.
  • THAT IS NOT GOOD FOR THE GAME OF
  • BASEBALL.
  • THAT IS GOOD FOR THE GAME OF
  • BASEBALL.
  • HE PUTS PRIDE INTO HIS CRAFT.
  • RIGHT NOW I AM SAYING GOOD D.H.
  • IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE.
  • SHAWN: A GAME BY GAME BASIS?
  • BEN: HOW OFTEN DO YOU SEE A GUY
  • GO UP THERE AND BE LIKE, I WILL
  • TAKE THREE PITCHES AND MORE
  • BACK?
  • SHAWN: YOU HAVE SOME EFFECT ON
  • THE GAME IF YOU CAN GET IT DOWN
  • AT THE PLATE.
  • RICH: BRANDON BELT, WHO WALKED
  • BACK IN THE FIRST.
  • BEN: AND THAT WALK TIED AARON
  • NOLA'S WALK TOTAL LAST YEAR, AT
  • 58.
  • RICH: WHILE THE PHILLIES HAD
  • TROUBLE WITH RUNNERS IN SCORING
  • POSITION IN THE DESERT, THE
  • GIANTS WERE MISERABLE AS WELL,
  • THREE HAPPENED 21.
  • CRAWFORD IS AT SECOND, BUMGARNER
  • AND FIRST.
  • AND A FASTBALL IN.
  • IT IS 1-1.
  • SHAWN: WHEN I TALKED ABOUT
  • BUMGARNER IN THE OPENER, HE IS
  • THE GUY YOU WANT ON THE MOUND IN
  • A GAME LIKE THIS, WHEN YOU GET
  • SWEPT BY THE NATIONALS.
  • HE IS A GUY WITH BIG SHOULDERS
  • AND HE SAYS, HOP ON.
  • I WILL GET US A W.
  • YOU SAW THE BEST AT-BAT OF THE
  • NIGHT ON THE PLATE BY HIM.
  • HE WAS ABLE TO HELP HIS TEAM OUT
  • AND HELP HIS CAUSE.
  • HOPEFULLY GOES INTO A BIG INNING
  • FOR HIM.
  • RICH: 1-1 MISSES.
  • FELT HAS HAD SUCCESS, ALTHOUGH
  • IT IS NOT A BIG SAMPLE SIZE,
  • AGAINST NOLA.
  • HE IS 4-6 WITH A WALK, AND THAT
  • WALK CAME TODAY.
  • SHAWN: ONE THING BRANDON BELT
  • DOES DO IS HE WALKS.
  • HE IS TIED FOR EIGHTH IN THE
  • LEAGUE WITH WALKS, BUT HE HAS
  • STRUGGLED AS OF LATE.
  • RICH: .167 AVERAGE IN HIS LAST
  • 12 GAMES.
  • INTO RIGHT FIELD.
  • THAT IS A HIT.
  • CRAWFORD AT THIRD.
  • THAT WILL SEND HIM.
  • AND TO THIRD.
  • CRAWFORD SCORES, AND THE GIANTS
  • ARE ON THE BOARD.
  • BEN: THAT IS NUMBER THAT WAS SET
  • UP.
  • THEY WANTED THIS PITCH DOWN AND
  • AWAY.
  • AND SET BEING DOWN, BUT MORE IN
  • THE MIDDLE.
  • HOOKS IT INTO RIGHT FIELD.
  • REACHING BACK ACROSS HIS BODY.
  • SMART PLAY BY HARPER TO GO TO
  • THIRD BASE FOR THIS.
  • NO CHANCE TO GET CRAWFORD HERE
  • AT HOME PLATE.
  • SHAWN: YOU TALK ABOUT A MISS
  • LOCATION ON THE FASTBALL --
  • DON'T TAKE ANYTHING AWAY -- I
  • DON'T WANT TO HARP ON THE
  • AT-BAT, BUT AFTER A FIRST PITCH
  • SINGLE, IT WEARS A PITCHER DOWN.
  • BEN: ABSOLUTELY.
  • SHAWN: THAT IS WHY YOU MAKE
  • MISTAKES SOMETIMES AS A PITCHER.
  • DON'T THINK HE WASN'T THINKING
  • ABOUT THAT WITH BRANDON BELT AT
  • THE PLATE.
  • RICH: HERE IS YASTRZEMSKI NOW.
  • STRUCK OUT BACK IN THE FIRST.
  • HE HAS HIT A ROUGH PATCH, OF
  • LATE.
  • TWO FOR HIS LAST 18.
  • CERTAINLY HAS MADE AN IMPACT IN
  • WHAT WAS HIS ROOKIE SEASON.
  • 10 HOME RUNS.
  • DRIVES THAT BALL DEEP DOWN THE
  • LINE.
  • BRUCE AFTER IT.
  • OFF THE WALL.
  • BOUNCES BACK TOWARD THE FIELD.
  • BUMGARNER WILL SCORE.
  • BELT BEHIND HIM.
  • HE WILL SCORE.
  • YASTRZEMSKI CUT OFF THE BAG AT
  • SECOND AND TAGGED OUT.
  • THE GIANTS CASH IN WITH TWO MORE
  • RUNS.
  • SHAWN: THAT IS THE BIG HIT THE
  • GIANTS HAVE NOT GOTTEN RECENTLY.
  • RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITION.
  • HIS STRENGTH HE FASTBALL THE
  • OTHER WAY AND DRIVES IT THE
  • OTHER WAY.
  • HE HAS GOT A LOT OF POWER TO
  • LEFT FIELD.
  • HE HAD A GAME WIN WITH A
  • WALKOFF.
  • DOES IT AGAIN TONIGHT WITH
  • ANOTHER TO R.B.I.'S.
  • RICH: YASTRZEMSKI --
  • SHAWN: AND THEN GETS PUNCHED
  • OUT.
  • RICH: LITERALLY.
  • SHAWN: IN THE FACE.
  • THERE IS A BALL IN THERE, SO
  • THAT HAS TO HURT A LITTLE.
  • BEN: IT DOES.
  • RICH: NOT LIKE GETTING RUN OVER,
  • THOUGH.
  • HERE IS POSEY WITH ONE OUT.
  • THE GIANTS PUT THREE UP ON THE
  • BOARD.
  • FOR CONSECUTIVE HITS AGAINST
  • AARON NOLA.
  • SHAWN: THAT IS RIGHT.
  • YOU PLAYED IN THE DAY WHEN YOU
  • COULD GET CLOCKED.
  • RICH: I HEARD YOU MENTION J.T.
  • SNOW.
  • SHAWN: HE GOT YOU?
  • BEN: HE GOT ME REALLY GOOD IN
  • SAN DIEGO.
  • HIS DAD PLAYED IN THE NFL FOR
  • ALL THOSE YEARS AND MAYBE TAUGHT
  • HIM SOMETHING.
  • A THROW FROM RIGHT FIELD.
  • J.T. WAS A BIG MAN.
  • HE LAID ME OUT.
  • I GOT UP, I HAD NO IDEA WHERE I
  • WAS.
  • I HELD ONTO THE BALL.
  • I DON'T KNOW HOW.
  • BUT EVERY TIME I HEAR J.T. --
  • SHAWN: NOT PLEASANT THOUGHTS.
  • BEN: I WILL SAY J.T. REALMUTO
  • EVERY NOW AND AGAIN AND THINK OF
  • J.T. SNOW.
  • RICH: J.T. REALMUTO WAS A
  • TERRIFIC FOOTBALL PLAYER
  • HIMSELF.
  • HE WAS A QUARTERBACK.
  • LET HIS HIGH SCHOOL TO A LIVE A
  • -- TO A 5-A CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE
  • FOOTBALL-MAD STATE OF OKLAHOMA.
  • HE WAS PROBABLY THE TOUGHEST
  • CORNERBACK IN THE COUNTRY.
  • HE COMES FROM A WRESTLING
  • FAMILY.
  • THAT WAS A STRIKE ON THE OUTSIDE
  • CORNER.
  • ONE OF HIS UNCLES IS JOHN SMITH,
  • A TWO-TIME GOLD MEDALIST.
  • SHAWN: I REMEMBER JOHN SMITH.
  • THAT IS SOME VIN SCULLY
  • KNOWLEDGE.
  • RICH: I SPENT A LOT OF TIME WITH
  • J.T. DOWN IN MIAMI.
  • SHAWN: VIN WAS THE BEST AT THAT.
  • HE WOULD TELL YOU STUFF ABOUT
  • YOURSELF YOU DID NOT EVEN KNOW
  • THAT HAPPENED IN YOUR LIFE.
  • RICH: IF YOU ARE A GIANTS FAN,
  • THIS IS THE TYPE OF INNING THAT
  • GIVES YOU HOPE, BECAUSE JULY WAS
  • FUELED NOT NECESSARILY BY THE
  • CORE GROUP OF GIANTS.
  • IT WAS SOME OF THE PEACHES THAT
  • WERE NOT HERE WHEN THE SEASON
  • BEGAN.
  • BRUCE BOCHY EVEN PULL US TODAY
  • -- HE SAID THOSE GUYS ARE GREAT,
  • BUT WE NEED OUR CORE GUYS TO
  • START HITTING.
  • CRAWFORD, BASE HIT.
  • BUMGARNER, BASE HIT.
  • ELSE, BASE HIT.
  • ONE OF THE PIECES, YASTRZEMSKI,
  • DRIVES IN TWO.
  • THAT IS ONE OF THE COMPONENTS
  • THAT BUILT THIS LEAD.
  • SHAWN: BUSTER POSEY PUT TOGETHER
  • A NICE AT-BAT.
  • THEY NEED THE CORE GUYS TO STEP
  • UP IF THEY HAVE ANY CHANCE OF
  • MAKING A RUN HERE IN THE LAST
  • MONTH AND A HALF OF THE SEASON.
  • THEY HAVE REALLY HAD YEARS THAT
  • THEY HAVE UNDERPERFORMED AS FAR
  • AS THEIR CAREER NUMBERS GO.
  • IT HAS BEEN THE YOUNG GUYS IN
  • DICKERSON, SOLANO, WHO IS NOT
  • YOUNG, BUT HE IS QUALITY,
  • YASTRZEMSKI, AND SLATER.
  • RICH: LITTLE TAPPER BACK TO
  • NOLA.
  • CLICK TO FIRST.
  • AND THERE IS TWO OUTS.
  • BEFORE THE DEADLINE, GIANTS GOT
  • HOT.
  • JULY WAS TERRIFIC.
  • 20-6, INCLUDING A RUN IN THERE
  • WHERE THEY WON 18 OF 22.
  • BUT SINCE THE CALENDAR TURNED TO
  • AUGUST, RIGHT NOW ONE-.
  • -- RIGHT NOW 1-6.
  • SHAWN: YOU KNEW THEY WERE NOT
  • GOING TO SUSTAIN THAT TYPE OF
  • OFFENSE.
  • THEY WERE NOT GOING TO GO COLD,
  • BUT THE STARTERS E.R.A. KEPT
  • THEM IN GAMES DURING THAT
  • STRETCH.
  • RICH: VOGT INTO THE BAT.
  • HE MAKES THE PLAY.
  • FOR SAN FRANCISCO, THREE RUNS
  • AFTER SCORING JUST OR THE ENTIRE
  • SERIES AGAINST THE NATIONALS.
  • GIANTS GET THREE IN THE THIRD ON
  • CAREER HITS.
  • LUCILLE FEELING A LOT BETTER
  • ABOUT TONIGHT.
  • 3-0 START FOR SAN FRANCISCO, AND
  • A PITCHER'S DUEL TO OPEN THIS
  • FOUR-GAME SERIES.
  • BRUCE BOCHY'S RUN HERE, THREE
  • WORLD SERIES TITLES.
  • SINCE THEN, IT HAS BEEN A
  • STRUGGLE.
  • THAT IS WHY YOU HAVE FARHAN
  • ZAIDI HERE, RETOOLING,
  • REFURBISHING.
  • THE FINAL SEASON FOR BRUCE
  • BOCHY.
  • DOWN BELOW WITH GUY HABERMAN.
  • GUY: BRUCE, IS THAT ONE OF THE
  • BEST AT-BATS YOU HAVE SEEN
  • MADISON BUMGARNER HAVE IS TO
  • MARK -- BUMGARNER HAVE?
  • BRUCE: THE SWING AWAY AND THE
  • RUNNER GOING, WHAT A GREAT JOB.
  • HE FOULED OFF SOME TOUGH
  • PITCHES.
  • GUY: MEANWHILE, SCORING AFTER
  • WHAT HAS BEEN A SLOW OFFENSIVE
  • MONTH -- DOES THAT RELIEVE SOME
  • PRESSURE?
  • BRUCE: HOPEFULLY.
  • HITTING WITH RUNNERS IN SCORING
  • POSITION, THAT IS A BIG ONE.
  • GOT A LITTLE AGGRESSIVE ON BASE,
  • BUT GOT THE BIG HIT THERE.
  • NICE TO GET THAT.
  • HOPEFULLY IT DOES TAKE A LITTLE
  • PRESSURE OFF THESE GUYS.
  • GUY: BUMGARNER UNTOUCHED AT THIS
  • POINT.
  • WHAT ARE YOU SEEING ON THE
  • MOUND?
  • BRUCE: HE IS GETTING HIS PITCHES
  • WORKING, HITTING HIS SPOTS.
  • HE HAS BEEN A GUY THAT CAN USE
  • ALL FOUR AND ELEVATE.
  • HE IS A GUY WE WANT OUT THERE IN
  • A BIG GAME, AND WE CAN IT IS A
  • BIG NAME.
  • GUY: 10 DAYS AGO, WE WOULD NOT
  • KNOW IF HE WOULD MAKE THIS
  • START.
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU TO HAVE
  • HIM OUT THERE IN GENERAL?
  • BRUCE: THE FIRST THING I DID
  • AFTER THE DEADLINE WAS HUG HIM.
  • HE MEANS A LOT TO ME.
  • GUY: BRUCE, APPRECIATE THE TIME.
  • RICH: THANK YOU, GUY.
  • EXCELLENT STUFF.
  • BEN: WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU
  • GET.
  • NOBODY BETTER THAN BRUCE BOCHY.
  • SHAWN: HE LOVES HIS PLAYERS, AND
  • HE WON THREE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
  • HERE, AND THIS GUY ON THE MOUND
  • HAD A LOT TO DO WITH ALL OF
  • THEM.
  • RICH: NOW THE PHILLIES GO BACK
  • TO WORK.
  • BUMGARNER HAS THAT ONE INSIDE.
  • TOP OF THE ORDER, ROMAN QUINN,
  • RHYS HOSKINS, BRYCE HARPER.
  • TOP OF THE ORDER FOR THE
  • PHILLIES.
  • BUMGARNER HAS RETIRED ALL NINE
  • THAT HE HAS FACED.
  • YOU ARE OF STRIKEOUTS.
  • THAT CATCHES THE CORNER AT 91.
  • BEN: HOW MANY TIMES AS A LEADOFF
  • HITTER DO YOU GET YOUR SECOND
  • AT-BAT IN THE FOURTH INNING?
  • SHAWN: THAT WOULD MEAN, NINE
  • DOWN.
  • BEN: THAT'S IT.
  • RICH: ROMAN IS A GUY THAT HAS
  • BEEN VERY INJURY-PLAGUED
  • THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER.
  • WHEN HEALTHY, A VERY DYNAMIC
  • PLAYER.
  • IT IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT
  • DIMENSION TO THE PHILLIES
  • OFFENSE WITH HIS SPEED.
  • AND WHEN I SAY SPEED, I MEAN
  • DON'T BLINK SPEED.
  • SHAWN: SO HE IS A GUY YOU WANT
  • TO KEEP OFF THE BASE PATHS?
  • BEN: YES.
  • RICH: HE WAS OFFERED A
  • SCHOLARSHIP.
  • HE WAS A TERRIFIC POINT GUARD.
  • THEY WERE GOING TO LET HIM PLAY
  • BOTH SPORTS AT FLORIDA STATE.
  • A BASEBALL-FOOTBALL SCHOLARSHIP.
  • ALLSTATE AS A POINT GUARD IN
  • PORT SAINT JOE, FLORIDA.
  • THE NETTING HERE IN SAN
  • FRANCISCO AND MANY BALLPARKS ARE
  • NOW EXTENDING THE NETTING FROM
  • FOUL POLE TO FOUL POLE.
  • THE GIANTS NETTING GOES PRETTY
  • LONG WAY DOWN THERE TO THE
  • BULLPEN.
  • AND THAT BALL, A VICIOUS LINE
  • DRIVE.
  • FOUL IN THE NETTING.
  • SHAWN: THAT NETTING SAVED A FEW
  • TRIPS TO THE E.R. FOR FANS.
  • COULD NOT COME SOON ENOUGH.
  • RICH: I HAVE BEEN IN MAJOR
  • LEAGUE BASEBALL FOR 25 YEARS.
  • YOU HAVE FOR A LONG TIME AS
  • WELL.
  • ANYONE IN THE GAME -- PLAYERS,
  • BROADCASTERS, FRONT OFFICE THE
  • BALL -- OFFICE PEOPLE, ALWAYS
  • WANTED THE NETTING.
  • WHENEVER YOU LEAVE TICKETS FOR
  • SOMEONE, PLAYERS LEAVE TICKETS
  • FOR THEIR FAMILY BEHIND THE
  • SCREEN.
  • BEN: EVEN WHEN THESE NETS WERE
  • NOT DONE THE FIRST AND THIRD
  • BASELINES, OUR FIELD REPORTER
  • GREGG MURPHY ALWAYS SAYS THE
  • BEST SEATS IN THE HOUSE, THE
  • MOST EXTENSIVE -- THE MOST
  • EXPENSIVE SEATS ARE BEHIND THE
  • NET.
  • SHAWN: RIGHT BEHIND HOME PLATE.
  • BEN: I THINK IT IS GREAT FOR
  • BASEBALL.
  • I HAVE SEEN TOO MANY JUST
  • STOMACH-TURNING SHOTS FROM
  • CAMERA GUYS.
  • DON'T LIKE IT.
  • RICH: AND I LIKE THE FACT THAT
  • THE NATS HERE IN SAN FRANCISCO
  • DO EXTEND ALMOST ALL THE WAY
  • DOWN THE LINE.
  • THEY ARE HIGH.
  • THEY ARE NOT LONE METS.
  • THEY ARE WHAT LOOK LIKE A GOOD
  • 35 FEET UP.
  • SHAWN: AT SOME POINT THEY WILL
  • END UP ALL THE WAY DOWN THE
  • RIGHT-FIELD LINE.
  • RICH: QUINN BATTLING HERE
  • AGAINST BUMGARNER.
  • BEN: ROMAN, AFTER COMING BACK
  • FROM A PRETTY SERIOUS GROIN
  • INJURY, JUST THOUGHT HE WOULD GO
  • ALL RIGHT-HANDED.
  • HE SWITCH IT ALL HIS LIFE, BUT
  • FIGURED I HAVE MORE SUCCESS FROM
  • THE RIGHT SIDE.
  • DID NOT WORK OUT.
  • HE IS BACK TO SWITCH INNING.
  • RICH: PILLAR RUNS THAT OUT AND
  • VOGT IS GOING TO GET OUT IN
  • CENTER FIELD.
  • WE KNEW WE WOULD FIND A CATEGORY
  • WHERE YOUR NAME WAS STILL
  • PROMINENT.
  • SHAWN: THEY HAD TO GO DEEP.
  • USUALLY IT IS TOP FOUR OR FIVE.
  • THEY HAD TO GO DOWN TO SIX.
  • RICH: WOODY IS ON THE LIST.
  • BEN: ONE OF THE BEST NICKNAMES
  • EVER.
  • RICH: BARRY ZITO AND BLUE.
  • WAS THE LEFT AS AN ATHLETIC AND
  • A GIANT.
  • HERE IS HOSKINS.
  • SHAWN: WOODY PROBABLY WANTED TO
  • CONTINUE BEING TO BE ONE OF THE
  • ALL-TIME LEFT-HANDED GAME
  • STARTERS.
  • HE WAS PROBABLY BUMMED BUMGARNER
  • DID NOT GET TRADED.
  • HE WANTED TO BE ON TOP OF THAT
  • LIST.
  • I AM KIND OF JOKING BECAUSE WHAT
  • HE IS ONE OF MY EX-TEAMMATES AND
  • A GOOD DUDE.
  • BUT BUM'S NEXT START, HE WILL
  • END UP BEING THE MOST EVER.
  • AND HE SHOULD BE.
  • RICH: -- BEN: HOSKINS HAVING A
  • TERRIFIC YEAR.
  • HE LEADS THE NATIONAL LEAGUE AND
  • WALKS, WITH 85.
  • HE IS SLUGGING OVER .500.
  • HIS ON-BASE IS OVER .400.
  • 24 HOMERS, 24 DOUBLES.
  • HE CAME HERE AS A YOUNGSTER
  • GROWING UP IN SACRAMENTO.
  • WATCH THE GIANTS.
  • SHAWN: THAT PITCH RIGHT THERE,
  • RICH, IS THE PITCH THAT HE IS --
  • HE DOES NOT GO THERE OFTEN, BUT
  • HE DOES JUST ENOUGH TO KEEP
  • HITTERS HONEST INSIDE.
  • HE WILL. THAT CORNER DOWN AND
  • AWAY TO RIGHT-HANDED BATTERS.
  • I THINK IT IS A SMART MOVE
  • AGAINST HOSKINS.
  • I HAVE SEEN THE NUMBERS AGAINST
  • HOSKINS AS FAR AS HOME RUNS GO.
  • HE DOES NOT USUALLY GO THE OTHER
  • WAY WITH POWER.
  • HE LIKES TO PULL THE BALL OUT OF
  • THE BALLPARK.
  • IN THIS BALLPARK, I WOULD ALWAYS
  • SAY, IF YOU ARE GOING TO BEAT
  • ME, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO
  • BEAT ME TO RIGHT CENTER.
  • THAT IS A LONG WAY OUT THERE, SO
  • I LIKED TO STAY AWAY FROM
  • RIGHT-HANDED HITTERS WHEN I WAS
  • A PITCHER.
  • I DID THAT TO HIS REPERTOIRE.
  • RICH: TRIPLES ALLEY, 421 AT ITS
  • FURTHEST POINT.
  • FULL COUNT, 3-2.
  • BY DIRECTION, JUST FOUR TO RIGHT
  • FIELD AND 56 TO LEFT.
  • GUY HABERMAN HAD THAT NICE STORY
  • ABOUT HOSKINS AT THE START OF
  • OUR TELECAST.
  • ONE SCHOLARSHIP TO SACRAMENTO
  • STATE.
  • THAT IS IT.
  • SHAWN: THAT PITCH RIGHT THERE IS
  • WHAT MAKES MADISON BUMGARNER SO
  • GOOD.
  • AS A HITTER, 3-2 COUNT, YOU ARE
  • THINKING YOU ARE GOING TO AT
  • SOME POINT GET A FASTBALL,
  • RIGHT?
  • I GUESS IT IS CONSIDERED A
  • HITTER'S COUNT.
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT A HITTER'S
  • COUNT IS ANYMORE.
  • HE WILL THROW ANY THREE OR FOUR
  • OF HIS PITCHES.
  • HE WILL THROW THE CHANGEUP OR A
  • FASTBALL AND WILL STAY OUT OF
  • THE MIDDLE OF THE PLATE WITH ALL
  • OF THOSE.
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT AS
  • A HITTER.
  • RICH: THAT IS A GREAT AT-BAT.
  • THAT IS THE FIRST BASE RUNNER
  • AGAINST MADISON BUMGARNER.
  • LET'S GO BACK TO HARPER'S
  • AT-BAT, PITCH BY PITCH, FROM THE
  • FIRST.
  • BEN: FIRST PITCH CALLED OUTSIDE.
  • GOES DOWN 0-1.
  • MAD BUM SEEMED CONTENT TO STAY
  • AWAY FROM BRYCE HARPER.
  • PROBABLY THE BEST PITCH TO HIT
  • RIGHT THERE.
  • OUT AND AWAY.
  • THE LAST ONE, FLY BALL TO CENTER
  • FIELD.
  • A LOT OF BALLS IN THE AIR EARLY
  • ON AGAINST MAD BUM.
  • RICH: HARPER.
  • HARPER HAD THAT PRODUCTIVE
  • POSTSEASON SERIES AGAINST THE
  • GIANTS HOMERING -- I BELIEVE IT
  • WAS THREE HOMERS IN FOUR GAMES.
  • DIVISION SERIES.
  • THE GIANTS WON THAT.
  • THIS HAS NOT BEEN A GREAT
  • BALLPARK FOR HIM.
  • THE ONE PART THAT JUMPS OUT ON
  • THE LIST IS MILLER PARK.
  • I HAVE NEVER HEARD A HITTER SAY
  • I HAD A HARD TIME AT MILLER
  • PARK.
  • SHAWN: A GREAT PLACE TO HIT.
  • IT REALLY IS.
  • BEN: WHEN YOU REOPEN IN OAKLAND
  • WHEN I WAS WITH SEATTLE.
  • WE CAME TO PLAY A COUPLE
  • EXHIBITION GAMES.
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY I WAS IN THIS
  • GROUP, BUT IT WAS ME, ICHIRO,
  • MIKE CAMERON.
  • CAMERON LOOKS DOWN AND GOES,
  • .309 OPPO?
  • I WOULD MAKE A KILLING HERE.
  • OBVIOUSLY, I HAD PLAYED A LOT OF
  • GAMES HERE, COMING IN WITH SAN
  • DIEGO.
  • I SAID, I BET YOU CANNOT HIT ONE
  • OPPO M.V.P. -- IN B.P.
  • EASIEST HUNDRED BUCKS I EVER
  • MADE.
  • IT JUST DOES NOT -- RIGHTY ON
  • RIGHTY, GOOD LUCK.
  • AS FAR AS YOU WANT.
  • SHAWN: THERE HAS ONLY BEEN A
  • HANDFUL OF HOMERS BY RIGHT
  • FIELDERS OUT TO RIGHT FIELD.
  • RICH: LONGORIA WAS DEEP, ALMOST
  • AT A SHORTSTOP.
  • HARPER SHORTENED.
  • BUT IT IS MORE SHOW THEM GO.
  • -- THAN GO.
  • SHAWN: A LITTLE EMOTION ON THE
  • MOUND.
  • WE WATCHED THE FIRST AT-BAT.
  • HE GOT A FASTBALL A COUPLE
  • INCHES OFF THE PLATE AWAY.
  • HE MADE TWO PITCHES HE THOUGHT
  • WERE BETTER, AND DID NOT GET THE
  • CALL.
  • RICH: OFF THE PLATE, BUT NOT BY
  • MUCH.
  • HARPER PULLS THAT ONE.
  • HUGELY SUREHANDED.
  • THERE IS GENNETT.
  • HE SCOOPS IT UP AND GETS THE
  • OUT.
  • BEN: THAT WAS A HEADS UP PLAY BY
  • SCOOTER GENNETT.
  • SHAWN: AND BRANDON BELT AFTER HE
  • KICKED IT.
  • AT LEAST TO GET ONE OUT.
  • RICH: THAT WILL GO DOWN 3, 4, 3.
  • SHAWN: KICK SAVED.
  • FOR BRANDON BELT TO KICK IT AND
  • THEN GO BACK TO THE BAG -- THAT
  • IS REALLY HIS ONLY CHANCE OF
  • GETTING THE OUT RIGHT THERE, IF
  • SCOOTER IS THERE.
  • HEADS UP PLAY BY SCOOTER
  • GENNETT, AND FOR BRANDON BELT TO
  • GET BACK TO THE BAG.
  • BEN: WE TALKED ABOUT BRYCE
  • HARPER IN THE OPEN, RIGHT?
  • THIS IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT.
  • IS HE HAVING A GREAT YEAR
  • OFFENSIVELY?
  • NOT TERRIBLE.
  • OBVIOUSLY HE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE
  • A BETTER YEAR.
  • YOU SEE THE HUSTLE?
  • THAT IS SOMETHING WE HAVE
  • NOTICED FROM DAY ONE.
  • HE DOES NOT TAKE PLAYS OFF, AND
  • HE IS BUSTING IT 98 EVERY TIME
  • THIS SEASON.
  • SHAWN: YOU TALK ABOUT HIS
  • DEFENSE -- IF YOU LIKE METRICS,
  • HE WAS A -27 METRICS
  • DEFENSIVELY.
  • HE IS PLUS TWO THIS YEAR.
  • HE HAS MADE A HUGE IMPROVEMENT
  • ON THE DEFENSIVE SIDE.
  • RICH: JEAN SEGURA INTO CENTER
  • FIELD, SHALLOW.
  • PILLAR.
  • AND HE IS THERE.
  • BUMGARNER GIVES UP A WALK, AND
  • THAT IS IT ALL NIGHT.
  • AND THE PHILLIES STRAND THAT
  • RUNNER.
  • WE GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THE
  • FOURTH HERE IN SENTENCE US GO --
  • IN SAN FRANCISCO, WITH THE
  • GIANTS ON TOP OF THE PHILLIES,
  • AND A SCORE OF 3-0.
  • GABE KAPLER IN THE SECOND YEAR.
  • HAD A NICE RUN AS THE PLAYER
  • DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR WITH THE
  • DODGERS, AND A 12 YEAR MAJOR
  • LEAGUE CAREER.
  • SIX TEAMS, INCLUDING THE WORLD
  • CHAMPIONSHIP WITH BOSTON, 2004.
  • THERE IS HIS RUN NEXT TO ANDREW
  • FRIEDMAN.
  • IN HIS SECOND YEAR.
  • AND HE IS DOWN BELOW WITH GUY
  • HABERMAN.
  • GUY: WHAT DO YOU SEE AGAINST
  • MADISON BUMGARNER?
  • GABE: HE IS DOING A GOOD JOB
  • EXECUTING WITH HIS FASTBALL.
  • ATTACKS THE STRIKE ZONE, AND
  • DOING A GOOD JOB.
  • GUY: BRYCE HARPER SEES 36
  • PERCENTAGE -- 36% OF THE PITCHES
  • IN THE STRIKE ZONE.
  • WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE EVERY
  • NIGHT IN THIS LEAGUE?
  • GABE: GETTING READY AND NOT
  • MISSING IT.
  • GUY: AARON NOLA, ANYTHING HE
  • NEEDS TO GET BACK ON TRACK?
  • GABE: HE IS EXECUTING WITH HIS
  • FASTBALL.
  • HIS CURVEBALL HAS BEEN IN AND
  • OUT OF THE ZONE.
  • GET THE STRIKE FOR AS LONG AS
  • POSSIBLE.
  • RICH: THANK YOU, GUY.
  • THE GIANTS WERE ABLE TO GET TO
  • NOLA, THREE RUNS ON FOUR
  • CONSECUTIVE HITS IN THE THIRD.
  • AS WE HAVE PULLED YOU ALL NIGHT,
  • A NOLA-BUMGARNER MATCHUP, NOLA
  • HAS BEEN GOOD AND DOMINANT IN
  • HIS LAST NINE STARTS.

  • ACCOUNTS AND DESCRIPTIONS MAY
  • NOT BE DISSEMINATED WITHOUT THE
  • EXPRESS WRITTEN TO THEM --
  • WRITTEN CONSENT.
  • SHAWN: NOT A BAD DAY FOR A BOAT
  • RIDE ON THE BAY.
  • I THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING,
  • WHAT GABE KAPLER SAID ABOUT
  • NOLA'S CURVEBALL.
  • WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT OVER THE
  • PLATE AND THEN EXIT THE STRIKE
  • ZONE.
  • IN BUMGARNER'S AT, WHAT COULD BE
  • THE AT-BAT OF THE GAME, IF HE
  • EXECUTED THAT PITCH, COULD HAVE
  • HAD A STRIKEOUT, AND COULD HAVE
  • HAD A DIFFERENT FATE IN THE
  • SECOND AND THIRD.
  • RICH: LONGORIA TAKES IN.
  • SINGLED IN THE SECOND.
  • SCOOTER GENNETT, KEVIN PILLAR IN
  • THE FOURTH.
  • GIANTS HAVE DROPPED FOUR
  • STRAIGHT AND SEVEN OF NINE.
  • STILL ALIVE, CERTAINLY, IN WHAT
  • IS A TRULY JUMBLED AND TIGHT
  • NATIONAL LEAGUE WILD-CARD RACE,
  • WITH THE PHILLIES TIED FOR THE
  • SECOND WILD-CARD SPOT, AND A
  • HOST OF TEAMS RIGHT THERE.
  • ST. LOUIS AND THE METS ARE A
  • HALF GAME BACK, OR AT LEAST THEY
  • WERE GOING INTO GAME -- PLAY
  • TONIGHT.
  • ARIZONA 1.5, GIANTS 3.5 BACK.
  • A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR THE
  • GIANTS, WITH ONE OF THE TEAMS
  • THAT HAS A PIECE OF THE
  • WILD-CARD HERE FOR FOUR.
  • BEN: THEY HAD A SHOT AT THE
  • NATIONALS, ANOTHER TEAM AHEAD OF
  • THEM, AND WERE SWEPT, DIDN'T
  • TAKE ADVANTAGE.
  • BUT NOW ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY,
  • AGAINST ANOTHER TEAM AHEAD OF
  • YOU, IN A FOUR-GAME SERIES TO
  • SEE IF YOU CAN DO DAMAGE IN THE
  • STANDINGS.
  • RICH: WE CAN'T EVEN GO AS DEEP
  • ON OUR SCREEN, WITH ALL THE
  • TEAMS INVOLVED HERE.
  • THE METS OF COURSE ARE ON AN
  • INCREDIBLE RUN, AND HAVE CLIMBED
  • IN TIGHT WITH THE CARDINALS.
  • THE DIAMONDBACKS CERTAINLY
  • HELPED THEMSELVES BY BEATING THE
  • PHILLIES TWO TIMES IN THAT
  • THREE-GAME SET WHICH ENDED LAST
  • NIGHT.
  • SHAWN: YOU SAW THE D-BACKS.
  • WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THEM?
  • THINK THEY HAVE A SHOT TO MAKE A
  • RUN?
  • BEN: MY BIGGEST CONCERN, THEIR
  • STARTING ROTATION.
  • IMPRESSED WITH WHAT ZAC GALLEN
  • DID LAST NIGHT, THE ROOKIE.
  • THE TOP OF THE LINEUP, THE TOP
  • SIX, THEY COULD MAKE A PUSH.
  • VERY GOOD.
  • A COUPLE SWITCH HITTERS.
  • EDUARDO ESCOBAR WITH THE 93,
  • LEAGUE-LEADING R.B.I.'S, HE'S
  • PUTTING IT TOGETHER.
  • THEY CAN SWING THE BAT.
  • THEIR DEFENSE STRUGGLED A LITTLE
  • IN THAT SERIES.
  • BUT OVERALL, THAT OFFENSE, IF
  • THEY KEEP CLICKING LIKE THEY ARE
  • NOW, THEY COULD MAKE A RUN.
  • RICH: THEY ARE THE OPPOSITE OF
  • THE GIANTS.
  • THEIR RUN DIFFERENTIAL IS, LIKE,
  • PLUS-76, RIGHT AROUND THERE
  • WHEREAS THE GIANTS, WHO ARE
  • CLOSE TO THEM, ARE MINUS-64.
  • BEN: THE REASON WHY, THE GIANTS
  • WIN A A LOT OF CLOSE GAMES,
  • LEADING THE LEAGUE IN ONE-RUN
  • WINS.
  • WHEN YOU ARE WINNING GAMES BY
  • ONE RUN AND LOSING THEM BY SIX,
  • YOU WILL HAVE A PRETTY LARGE RUN
  • DIFFERENTIAL.
  • I PUT A LITTLE STOCK INTO THAT.
  • BUT I PLAYED ON A TEAM IN 1997
  • THAT WON OUR DIVISION WITH A
  • NEGATIVE RUN DIFFERENTIAL WHEN
  • ALL WAS SAID AND DONE, BECAUSE
  • WE HAD A TEAM THAT WON CLOSE
  • GAMES, EXTRA INNING GAMES.
  • WHEN WE LOST, WE GOT BLOWN OUT.
  • WHEN WE WON, THEY WERE EXCITING
  • GAMES AND WE ENDED OUT ON TOP.
  • RICH: HANGING BREAKING BALL,
  • HUNCHED INTO CENTER FIELD FOR A
  • HIT.
  • ALL RIGHT, GENTS.
  • NEWS AND NOTES.
  • CHRIS DAVIS, BRANDON HYDE.
  • THANK GOODNESS THERE WERE SOMEAL
  • ALERT COACHES AND PLAYERS IN
  • THERE TO KEEP DAVIS FROM GOING
  • AFTER HYDE YESTERDAY.

  • AND BE CAREFUL IN THE WEIGHT
  • ROOM, KIDS.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • BEN: OK.

  • TRYING TO IMPROVE YOURSELF.
  • WHAT HAPPENED IN THE WEIGHT
  • ROOM?
  • OK.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • RICH: AUSTIN RILEY.
  • HE'S A BIG, SAW HIM COME INTO
  • ORACLE PARK A COUPLE MONTHS AGO
  • , JUST CALLED UP.
  • HE IS A SPECIAL HITTER.
  • SHAWN: HE HAS A GOOD IDEA AT THE
  • PLATE.
  • RICH: I WAS LOOKING FOR DETAILS
  • ON THAT, THE WAY YOU WERE ASKING
  • ME.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • MUCH LIKE ATHLETIC TEAMS WITH
  • INJURIES, THEY SAY LOWER BODY
  • INJURY OR WHATEVER, THEY ARE
  • CALLING IT A "MISHAP," A "WEIGHT
  • ROOM MISHAP."
  • SHAWN: THAT COULD GO A LOT OF
  • DIFF IN WAYS.
  • RICH: HERE IS GENNETT.
  • BEN: GETTING BACK TO THE
  • WILD-CARD, WHAT THE METS HAVE
  • DONE, WINNING 13 OF 14.
  • THIS BALLCLUB, THE METS, WATCH
  • OUT.
  • THE STARTING ROTATION, MAYBE THE
  • BEST IN BASEBALL.
  • SHAWN: I WOULD AGREE.
  • RIGHT NOW, PROBABLY THE BEST IN
  • AT LEAST THE NATIONAL LEAGUE.
  • IF ANYTHING CAN HOLD THEM BACK,
  • IT MIGHT BE THE DEFENSE.
  • BUT THEY ARE SWINGING THE BALL
  • WELL, SCARING HIM OUT OF
  • BALLCLUBS.
  • BEN: THEY GIVE THEMSELVES A
  • CHANCE TO WIN EVERY DAY, WITHOUT
  • PITCHING STAFF.
  • THE BULLPEN HAS BEEN AN ISSUE
  • WITH THEM EVERY DAY, BUT YOU
  • STILL HAVE DIAZ, WHO IS FILTHY.
  • IF HE CAN GET TOGETHER, YOU HAVE
  • GOT YOUR CLOSER.
  • RICH: DIAZ IS THE KIND OF
  • CLOSER WHERE IF YOU CAN GET IT
  • IN HIS HEAD, I DON'T HAVE TO BE
  • PERFECT, BECAUSE MY STUFF IS
  • THAT GOOD.
  • I CAN MAKE MISTAKES, AND GET
  • AWAY WITH IT.
  • BEN: YOU WATCH GUYS LIKE THAT,
  • AND YOU WONDER HOW THEY EVER
  • STRUGGLE, AS GOOD AS THEY ARE.
  • SHAWN: ALMOST LIKE IF I AM DIAZ,
  • I'M THINKING, IF IT GETS THERE,
  • I TRY TO MAKE IT PERFECT, AND IF
  • IT'S NOT, I DON'T CARE.
  • MY STUFF IS BETTER THAN YOURS,
  • AND YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HIT IT.
  • RICH: -- BEN: THEY ARE WINNING
  • GAMES RIGHT NOW.
  • BUT THE COMPETITION WILL GET
  • TOUGHER.
  • RICH: KNAPP, FROM BEHIND THE
  • PLATE, PICKS IT UP ON THE CHECK
  • SWING BY GENNETT, THROWS OUT
  • LONGORIA AT SECOND.
  • SHAWN: NICE PLAY.
  • RICH: IT WAS A NICE PLAY.
  • BEN: THE OLD SWINGING BUNT.
  • OOPS.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • YOU HAVE TO HATE THAT AS A
  • HITTER, DON'T YOU?
  • SHAWN: WELL, THAT WAS A FULL
  • SWING FOR ME RIGHT THERE.
  • BEN: NICE TO SEE ANDREW KNAPP ON
  • HIS HORSE.
  • SHAWN: YOU ALMOST THOUGHT AT
  • FIRST IT COULD HAVE TURNED INTO
  • A SWINGING BUNT, BUT IT COULD
  • STILL TURN THE RUNNER OVER LIKE
  • A SACRIFICE, BUT KNAPP DID A
  • NICE JOB.
  • LONGORIA, DEALING WITH PLANTAR
  • FASCIITIS, COMING OFF THE DL FOR
  • THAT, NOT AS QUICK AS HE USUALLY
  • IS.
  • RICH: PILLAR'S 0-1.
  • BEN: A GOOD STORY ABOUT ANDREW
  • KNAPP.
  • HIS DAD MIKE --
  • RICH: UP THE MIDDLE, CENTER
  • FIELD.
  • GENNETT, BIG TURN.
  • QUINN THROWS BEHIND HIM, AND
  • NARROWLY GETS BACK.
  • PILLAR HAS A HIT.
  • BEN: BACK TO ANDREW KNAPP.
  • HE'S FROM THE BAY AREA.
  • WENT TO UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA
  • .
  • HIS DAD MIKE, PLATE 11 YEARS IN
  • THE MINOR LEAGUES.
  • A COUPLE SCOUTS SAID, YOU COULD
  • PLAY IN THE BIG LEAGUES IF YOU
  • COULD HIT LEFT-HANDED.
  • SO HIS PARENTS SAID, THAT WILL
  • NEVER HAPPEN TO YOU, ANDREW, YOU
  • WILL SWITCH HIT.
  • HERE IS ANDREW KNAPP, SWITCH
  • HITTER IN THE BIG LEAGUES.
  • SHAWN: NICE.
  • BEN: ROMAN'S GOT AN EXCELLENT
  • ARM.
  • SHAWN: SHOWED IT OFF THERE.
  • EXCELLENT ATHLETE.
  • RICH: NOW CRAWFORD, OPENED THE
  • THIRD INNING WITH A BASE HIT.
  • BUMGARNER FOLLOWED WITH AN EPIC
  • AT-BAT, AND A BASE HIT TO LEFT.
  • BELT KNOCKED IN A RUN WITH A
  • SINGLE, AND YASTRZEMSKI WITH A
  • TWO RUN DOUBLE, HOW THE GIANTS
  • HAVE BUILT A 3-0 LEAD.
  • AND A STRIKE.
  • SHAWN: THE GIANTS ARE HAVING
  • SOME EXCELLENT AT-BATS TONIGHT
  • AGAINST AARON NOLA.
  • BEN: IT REALLY IS.
  • WATCHING THESE GUYS, AARON AT
  • ONE POINT, 11 FOR HIS LAST 100
  • WITH RUNNERS IN SCORING
  • POSITION, NOT A LOT OF GREAT
  • AT-BATS, KIND OF LIFELESS.
  • AND TONIGHT THEY HAVE TURNED IT
  • AROUND.
  • SHAWN: THE APPROACH IS THERE.
  • A LOT OF THESE BALLS HIT UP THE
  • MIDDLE.
  • THAT LONGORIA BAT STAYED BACK.
  • ABLE TO DUMP ONE INTO LEFT,
  • SPRAY ONE TO RIGHT BALLS HIT UPE
  • MIDDLE.
  • THAT LONGORIA CENTER,
  • THE ATTACK PLAN AGAINST AARON
  • NOLA.
  • BEN: YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT WITH
  • THE PITCHERS THEY SAW AGAINST
  • WASHINGTON, MISSING SCHERZER,
  • STRASBURG AND CORBIN, GETTING
  • FEDDE, SANCHEZ AND ROSS.
  • COULDN'T DO ANYTHING WITH THOSE
  • GUYS.
  • AND THEN SOME OF THE BETTER
  • AT-BATS OF THE YEAR ON AARON
  • NOLA.
  • THAT IS BASEBALL, RIGHT?
  • RICH: IT IS.
  • AND LOOK AT THE PITCH COUNT.
  • 74.
  • OF COURSE, THIS IS A FOUR-GAME
  • SERIES, TWO HORSES GOING FOR
  • EITHER SIDE, BUMGARNER AND NOLA
  • IN GAME ONE.
  • BEN: THIS IS DEFINITELY A GAME
  • WHERE IF YOU ARE A MANAGER, GABE
  • KAPLER, BRUCE BOCHY, YOU NEED
  • LENGTH OUT OF YOUR STARTERS.
  • IF YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT AN
  • ADVANTAGE OF EITHER TEAM, IT IS
  • DEFINITELY THE GIANTS BULLPEN
  • CURRENTLY.
  • THEY HAVE SOME GUYS THEY WANT TO
  • USE TONIGHT, DEPENDING ON HOW
  • LONG MAD BUM CAN GO.
  • BUT THE PHILLIES BULLPEN HAS
  • BEEN BEAT UP.
  • A A LOT OF INJURIES HAVE PLAGUED
  • THEM.
  • SHAWN: SO GABE'S NOT OVERLY
  • EXCITED TO HAND THE BALL TO THE
  • BULLPEN NOW?
  • BEN: NO.
  • NOT MAKING EXCUSES, BUT LOSING
  • SERANTHONY DOMINGUEZ, DAVID
  • ROBINSON, TOMMY HUNTER, ADAM
  • MORGAN CURRENTLY ON THE IL.
  • RIGHT NOW, GABE KAPLER'S HANDS
  • ARE TIED.
  • RICH: WELL, WE COULD SEE THE
  • REYES MORONTA EXPERIENCE
  • TONIGHT.
  • WILL SMITH IS A GUY THAT COACH
  • WOULD LOVE TO GET OUT THERE.
  • BUT AT THIS PACE, -- IT IS NOT
  • THE GIANTS' BULLPEN TO BE CALLED
  • ON FIRST.
  • 76 PITCHES, ONE OUT HERE IN THE
  • FOURTH.
  • PRETTY GOOD WHEELS OUT THERE NOW
  • FOR THE GIANTS, GENNETT AT
  • SECOND AND PILLAR THE TRAIL
  • RUNNER AT FIRST.
  • SLOW TAPPER.
  • KINGERY GETS THE OUT.
  • BUT THE RUNNERS MOVE UP, WITH
  • TWO OUTS.
  • HERE'S THE PITCH SEQUENCE OF
  • THAT BUMGARNER AT BAT.
  • BEN: A FASTBALL AWAY, WITH THE
  • RUNNER AT FIRST.
  • AND THEN ANOTHER FASTBALL.
  • DOES A NICE JOB FOULING OFF THE
  • 1-2 BREAKING BALL.
  • FOULS OFF ANOTHER TOUGH PITCH.
  • LAYS OFF A TOUGH FASTBALL AWAY.
  • FOULS OFF ANOTHER CURVEBALL, AND
  • GETS A FASTBALL IN THE ZONE HE
  • CAN TURN ON, AND THAT'S ONE
  • PITCH HE DOESN'T MISS TOO OFTEN.
  • THE BEST AT-BAT OF THE NIGHT.
  • GOT THIS OFFENSE GOING.
  • RICH: GENNETT AT THIRD.
  • PILLAR AT SECOND.
  • HERE IS BUMGARNER.
  • THIS TIME, HE STARTS WITH THE
  • BREAKING BALL.
  • DOES NOT CHASE.
  • BEN: I MENTIONED, IF NOLA THREW
  • THAT PITCH IN HIS LAST AT-BAT,
  • HE'D HAVE STRIKE THREE ON A
  • SWING AND MISS.
  • BUT MAYBE HE'S PITCHING HIM UP A
  • LITTLE BIT, BECAUSE HE SPIT ON
  • THAT PITCH.
  • A GOOD TAKE.
  • ANOTHER POSITION RIGHT NOW, LAST
  • INNING IT WAS TO MOVE A RUNNER
  • OVER, AND NOW A CHANCE TO DRIVE
  • A COUPLE IN.
  • SHAWN: THIS VERY WELL COULD BE
  • THE BALLGAME.
  • GOING DOWN FIVE RUNS, THE WAY
  • MAD BUM IS THROWING THE
  • BASEBALL, AWFUL TOUGH FOR THE
  • PHILLIES OFFENSE TO COME BACK.
  • NOT THAT IT'S IMPOSSIBLE, BUT
  • HOW INCONSISTENT THE PHILLIES
  • OFFENSE HAS BEEN.
  • SHAWN: THEY STARTED BUMGARNER
  • OUT BREAKING BALL, CHANGEUP, 84
  • MILES PER HOUR.
  • I WAS SURPRISED IN THE FIRST
  • AT-BAT THAT HE SAW FASTBALL.
  • BECAUSE THAT SEEMS TO BE THE
  • SCOUTING REPORT NOW ON MADISON
  • BUMGARNER.
  • WHATEVER OFFSPEED YOU HAVE,
  • THROW IT.
  • THAT LOOKED LIKE IT WAS JUST TO
  • SHOW HIM, MAYBE SPEED HIM UP A
  • LITTLE BIT.
  • RICH: HE'S PITCHING HIM LIKE A
  • CLEANUP HITTER.
  • YOU HAVE BELT ON DECK, TOP OF
  • THE ORDER.
  • SHAWN: IF YOU SHOW UP TO THE
  • BALLPARK AND DON'T KNOW WHO
  • ANYONE IS, AND JUST WATCH
  • BATTING PRACTICE, YOU WOULD
  • THINK HE WAS THEIR CLEANUP
  • HITTER.
  • BEN: THAT'S A GREAT POINT.
  • SHAWN: HE'S GOT SOME OF THE
  • BIGGEST POWER ON THIS CLUB.
  • RICH: BREEZY DAY, HERE IN SAN
  • FRANCISCO, AND WINDY DURING MOST
  • OF BATTING PRACTICE, WHEN THE
  • WIND WAS BLOWING TO RIGHT FIELD.
  • THE WIND HAS SHIFTED A LITTLE
  • FROM FOUL POLE TO FOUL POLE,
  • TOWARDS RIGHT.
  • BUT IF YOU HAVE BEEN TO A
  • BALLGAME HERE OR GREW UP AROUND
  • HERE, CANDLESTICK PARK.
  • SHAWN, YOU PLATE HERE AND YOU
  • KNOW THE WINDS CAN CHANGE,
  • INNING TO INNING.
  • 2-2 COMING.
  • SHAWN: ANOTHER CHANGEUP, PULLED
  • THE STRING ON HIM.
  • MADISON DID A GREAT JOB TAKING
  • THAT PITCH, AND IT HAD TO LOOK
  • PRETTY GOOD OUT OF THE HAND.
  • RICH: ANOTHER DEEP COUNT FOR
  • BUMGARNER.
  • A SINGLE ON THE NINTH PITCH OF
  • HIS FIRST AT-BAT.
  • THE 3-2.
  • IT'S OUT!
  • AND THEY'RE LOADED, AND GABE
  • KAPLER SHIFTS TO THE TOP STEP.
  • THERE'S ACTIVITY, IT LOOKS LIKE,
  • IN THE DUGOUT OF THE PHILLIES,
  • AND POSSIBLY SOME BULLPEN ACTION
  • HERE.
  • BEN: THESE ARE ALL HIGH LEVERAGE
  • PITCHES AARON NOLA HAS TO MAKE.
  • A LOT OF STRESS GOING INTO EACH
  • AND EVERY PITCH.
  • SHAWN: LIKE YOU SAID, BEN, A
  • TESTAMENT TO THE AT-BATS THE
  • GIANTS ARE PUTTING TOGETHER
  • TONIGHT.
  • REALLY MAKING HIM WORK, FROM THE
  • THIRD INNING ON.
  • DID -- MAKING HIM THROW A TON OF
  • PITCHES.
  • RICH: HOSKINS TALKING TO HIS
  • HERO THERE, AT FIRST BASE.
  • SHAWN: IF YOU ARE NOLA, YOU HAVE
  • TO LOOK AT IT THAT YOU HAVE BEN:
  • OUTS -- YOU HAVE TWO OUTS.
  • YES, THE BASES ARE LOADED, BUT
  • YOU CAN LIMIT THE DAMAGE AND GET
  • OUT OF HERE WITH A SCORELESS
  • FOURTH.
  • JUST MAKE THE PITCHES TO BRANDON
  • BELT.
  • I'M SURE THAT IS THE
  • CONVERSATION THEY JUST HAD.
  • RICH: MIKE MORIN STARTS TO GET
  • LOOSE.
  • BEN: BRANDON BELT LOOKED GOOD AT
  • THE PLATE TONIGHT.
  • WALKED IN THE FIRST.
  • HARD SINGLE TO RIGHT IN THE
  • THIRD.
  • RICH: ON THE GROUND.
  • HOSKINS TO THE BAG, AND AN
  • EXHAUSTING INNING FOR NOLA, BUT
  • HE DOESN'T GIVE UP A RUN, AND
  • THE GIANTS LEAVE THE BAGS
  • LOADED.
  • FOUR INNINGS IN, A 3-0 SAN
  • FRANCISCO LEAD.
  • BETTER KNOWN AS "TEAM DINGERS,"
  • RHYS HOSKINS, SCOTT KINGERY
  • TRIED THEIR HAND AT A ROUND OF
  • HEADS UP, CATEGORY SUPERSTARS.
  • LET'S SEE HOW THEY FARED.
  • >> ICE, ICE BABY.

  • ON YOUTUBE TONIGHT, OUR YOUTUBE
  • GAME OF THE WEEK IN SAN
  • FRANCISCO, BEGINNING A CRUCIAL
  • FOUR-GAME SERIES FOR THE GIANTS
  • AND THE PHILLIES.
  • THE PHILLIES HAVE A PIECE OF
  • THAT LAST WILD-CARD IN THE
  • NATIONAL LEAGUE.
  • THE GIANTS HAVE DROPPED SEVEN OF
  • NINE, 7.5 BACK OF THE SECOND
  • WILDCARD SPOT.
  • MADISON BUMGARNER WITH HIS LEFT
  • ARM AND HIS BAT HAVE BEEN
  • IMPORTANT TONIGHT.
  • SHAWN ESTES, WHAT DO YOU SEE
  • FROM HIS PITCHING TONIGHT?
  • SHAWN: WHAT I HAVE SEEN A LOT
  • THIS YEAR, HIS ABILITY TO GO
  • ATTACK THE STRIKE ZONE, BUT THE
  • HITTERS ON THE DEFENSIVE, HIT
  • ALL FOUR QUADRANTS OF THE STRIKE
  • ZONE, AND MAKE PITCHES.
  • JUST VERY UNPREDICTABLE.
  • HE HAS NOT GONE DEEP INTO
  • COUNTS, A COUPLE 3-2 COUNTS, BUT
  • FOR THE MOST PART HE HAS
  • DICTATED THIS GAME.
  • VERY EFFICIENT.
  • RICH: JAY BRUCE GOING AFTER THE
  • FIRST PITCH, ROLLS IT TO BELT
  • WHO JUST BEATS BRUCE TO THE BAG.
  • BEN: WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT
  • BEING EFFICIENT?
  • SHAWN: I REMEMBER COMING UP,
  • BEN.
  • YOU CAUGHT, SO YOU ARE ON THE
  • SAME PAGE AS THE PITCHERS.
  • BUT I HAD PITCHING COACHES TELL
  • ME, TRY TO GET AN OUT WITHIN THE
  • FIRST 10 PITCHES.
  • BUMGARNER TAKES THAT APPROACH.
  • EIGHT FIRST-PITCH STRIKES
  • TONIGHT, BUT HE'S NOT TRYING TO
  • NIBBLE.
  • HE'S GOING AT YOU, UNTIL HE GETS
  • TO TWO STRIKES, AND THEN HE WILL
  • TRY TO GET YOU TO CHASE.
  • THAT'S ONE THING HE HAS THE
  • ABILITY TO DO THIS YEAR, GETTING
  • GUYS TO CHASE OUT OF THE STRIKE
  • ZONE VERY EFFECTIVELY.
  • THAT'S THE PITCH RIGHT THERE,
  • THE MOST IMPORTANT PITCH IN
  • PITCHING, STRIKE ONE.
  • IF YOU KNOW THAT A TEAM IS UP,
  • LOOKING FOR STRIKE ONE, YOU HAVE
  • TO MAKE A QUALITY FIRST PITCH
  • STRIKE.
  • TEAMS START TO AMBUSH.
  • I HAVE SEEN THAT A LOT LATELY,
  • TEAMS THINKING, WE WILL GO UP
  • AND AMBUSH BUM, BUT HE MAKES A
  • BETTER QUALITY PITCH ON THE
  • FIRST PITCH.
  • RICH: IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE HE
  • EVER SHAKES BUSTER POSEY.
  • HE GETS HIS SIGN AND HE'S GOING.
  • SHAWN: NOT VERY OFTEN.
  • THERE'S A LOT OF TRUST.
  • THEY HAVE BEEN A BATTERY FOR A
  • LONG TIME.
  • HIS LAST START, STEPHEN VOGT WAS
  • BEHIND THE PLATE, AND YOU WERE
  • KIND OF WONDERING, WHAT
  • HAPPENED?
  • WAS FOSTER HURT?
  • -- BUSTER HURT?
  • A LOT OF TIMES HE WILL GET THE
  • DAY OFF AFTER A NIGHT GAME, BUT
  • WHEN BUM IS ON THE MOUND, HE'S
  • CATCHING.
  • RICH: ELEVATED FASTBALL.
  • 1-2 TO SCOTT KINGERY.
  • BEN: I KNOW YOU PITCHERS HAVE
  • YOUR PREFERENCES, BECAUSE YOU
  • ARE SUCH FICKLE CREATURES.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • SHAWN: 217 COMBINED STARTS.
  • EVERYONE HAS THEIR GUY.
  • RICH: THE GREAT MIKE UGO -- MIKE
  • COCO, MAKING AN APPEARANCE.
  • SHAWN: WHEN YOU HAVE BUSTER
  • POSEY, I DON'T THINK YOU ARE
  • GOING TO THE MANAGER AND SAYING,
  • HEY, CAN STEPHEN VOGT CATCH ME
  • TODAY?
  • I WOULD PREFER HIM.
  • BUT STEPHEN VOGT HAS BEEN GREAT,
  • ESPECIALLY WITH YOUNG GUYS,
  • BEATY AND ANDERSON THIS YEAR.
  • BEN: HE JUST SHOOK TWICE.
  • HOW ABOUT IT?
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • SHAWN: RIGHT ON CUE, RIGHT?
  • RICH: LIFTS IT IN THE AIR TO
  • RIGHT.
  • YASTRZEMSKI IS THERE.
  • HE MAKES THE CATCH.
  • THE GIANTS ARE BLESSED WITH
  • INCREDIBLE BROADCASTERS.
  • OBVIOUSLY HALL OF FAMER JOHN
  • MILLER.
  • BUT KRUIK --
  • >> THANK YOU.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • RICH: YOU ARE ON THE LIST.
  • DAVE FLEMMING AS WELL, ONE OF
  • THE MOST TALENTED PLAY-BY-PLAY
  • ANNOUNCERS IN THE BUSINESS RIGHT
  • NOW.
  • OF COURSE, DUANE KUIPER, WHO HAS
  • CALLED SO MANY BIG MOMENTS.
  • HE AND KRUKOW ARE DYNAMITE
  • TOGETHER.
  • BEN: THEY ARE A BRAND.
  • RICH: YOU AND HARVEY LOPEZ ALSO
  • ON THAT TEAM.
  • SHAWN: WE ARE JUST PINCHHITTING
  • ONCE IN A WHILE.
  • RICH: FASTBALL IN.
  • JUST TO PLAY THE EQUAL TIME AN
  • AMENDMENT WE HAVE FOR THIS
  • TELECAST, THERE IS A PHILLIES
  • CHAT ROOM, I THINK IT'S
  • INVITATION ONLY.
  • THEY SENT US A MESSAGE.
  • BEN DAVIS IS KILLING IT TONIGHT.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • AND IF MEMORY SERVES, THE
  • MODERATOR OF THAT CHAT ROOM IS
  • ALSO A DYNAMITE PLAY-BY-PLAY
  • MAN, TOM MCCARTHY.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • BEN: T-MAC IS A JOY TO WORK
  • WITH.
  • LET ME TELL YOU.
  • THERE IS NOBODY MORE PREPARED.
  • OBVIOUSLY HE'S GOT THAT BIG
  • BOOMING VOICE, BUT WE GET ALONG
  • WELL.
  • SHAWN: YOU GUYS REALLY RESPECT
  • EACH OTHER.
  • THAT'S GREAT.
  • RICH: THAT IS STRIKE THREE
  • CALLED!
  • THIS IS VINTAGE MADISON
  • BUMGARNER.
  • SPARKLING ON THE MOUND,
  • CONTRIBUTING AT THE PLATE, AND
  • THE GIANTS LEAD THE PHILLIES BY
  • A SCORE OF 3-0.
  • IN ADDITION TO HIS REPUTATION IN
  • THE POSTSEASON, IT'S THE
  • COMPETITOR THAT IS THE HALLMARK
  • OF MADISON BUMGARNER.
  • >> PUIG HAS FLIED OUT TO SHALLOW
  • LEFT CENTER, STRUCK OUT LOOKING.
  • PAGAN ON THE RUN, IT IS GONE!
  • NOW BUMGARNER AND PUIG HAVING
  • WORDS.
  • >> BUMGARNER WAS RIGHT THERE AT
  • HOME PLATE WAITING FOR HIM.
  • DIDN'T LIKE HOW HE STOOD THERE
  • WATCHING IT.
  • >> SOMEWHERE DOWN THE ROAD, IF
  • THEY MEET AGAIN THE STORY WILL
  • BE PICKED UP.
  • >> THE PITCH, HE HITS PUIG.
  • THE CUTTER DOWN AND IN GOT PUIG
  • IN THE FOOT.
  • PUIG IS UP, HEADING TO THE
  • MOUND SCREAMING AT BUMGARNER.
  • BOTH BENCHES EMPTIED.
  • BUMGARNER AT SOME POINT THROWS
  • HIS GLOVE DOWN AND SHOUTED AT
  • HIM, YOU WANT A PIECE OF IT,
  • LET'S GO.
  • >> BUMGARNER, SCREAMING AT THE
  • RANGERS, AND HERE WE GO.
  • >> THREW THE BAT IN DISGUST.
  • BUMGARNER DOESN'T LIKE THAT.
  • FOR WHATEVER REASON, HE THINKS
  • IT IS AN INSULT.
  • >> SHOULD HAVE BEEN A STRIKE.
  • IT IS BALL FOUR.
  • >> HE'S NOT GOING TO BACK AWAY
  • FROM COMPETITION.
  • >> BOTH GUYS.
  • >> BUMGARNER IS GOING TO GRAB
  • IT, TO BELT, AND GOT HIM.
  • BUMGARNER SAYS SOMETHING TO
  • PUIG.
  • >> BUMGARNER REALLY WANTS TO GO
  • GET HIM.
  • >> THOSE TWO JUST DON'T LIKE
  • EACH OTHER.
  • THAT WAS NOT FAKE.
  • >> THAT ONE IS GONE, IF IT IS
  • FAIR, INTO THE SAN FRANCISCO
  • BAY.
  • BUMGARNER IS YELLING AT MUNCY,
  • TO RUN.
  • >> PART OF WHAT MAKES BUMGARNER
  • SO GREAT IS HOW EASILY HE IS
  • RANKLED.
  • RICH: YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE TO SHOW
  • THE OTHER SIDE OF MADISON
  • BUMGARNER.
  • ONE DAY, WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT IF
  • BUMGARNER AND PUIG WERE
  • TEAMMATES?
  • SHAWN: UH --
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • I'M NOT SURE THAT WOULD WORK.
  • THERE'S DEFINITELY, I THINK
  • THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF A HATRED
  • BETWEEN THE TWO.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • I MEAN, PUIG'S A TALENTED
  • PLAYER.
  • HE CAN HELP YOUR CLUB.
  • MADISON IS ALL ABOUT WINNING, SO
  • I DON'T THINK HE WOULD CARE FOR
  • TOO LONG.
  • THEY'D TALK IT OUT, I AM SURE.
  • RICH: HERE IS YASTRZEMSKI.
  • BUSTER POSEY, STEPHEN VOGT IN
  • THE FIFTH.
  • 3-0 GIANTS.
  • AARON NOLA, GAVE UP THREE IN THE
  • THIRD, LEFT THEM LOADED.
  • BEN: I THINK KAP WILL DO
  • EVERYTHING HE CAN TO GET HIM
  • THROUGH THE INNING, BUT NICK
  • PIVETTA IS GETTING HOT, AND IF
  • YOU RUN INTO ANY KIND OF
  • SPEEDBUMP, I THINK YOU WILL SEE
  • PIVETTA COME IN WITH A DOUBLE
  • SWITCH, BECAUSE NOLA IS BATTING
  • SECOND IN THE TOP OF THE SIXTH.
  • RICH: 24, 21 AND 26 THE PITCH
  • COUNTS THE LAST THREE INNINGS.
  • IN HIGH LEVERAGE SPOTS, AS BEN
  • POINTED OUT.
  • WHEN TEAMS ARE MONITORING A
  • STAR, NOLA OR WHOEVER ELSE,
  • PITCH COUNT IS ONE THING.
  • BUT STRESSFUL INNINGS ARE ALWAYS
  • A RED FLAG.
  • YOU WONDER, WHEN YOU WATCH A GUY
  • LIKE YASTRZEMSKI FINALLY GET TO
  • THE BIG LEAGUES, HAVE SUCCESS,
  • HOW MANY MORE YASTRZEMSKIS ARE
  • IN THE MINOR LEAGUES YOU JUST
  • NEED AN OPPORTUNITY, WHO ARE
  • STUCK BEHIND, IN AN ORGANIZATION
  • LOADED AT THE BIG-LEAGUE LEVEL
  • AT THEIR POSITION?
  • SHAWN: THERE'S QUITE A FEW.
  • RICH: ON A HOP.
  • A LOT OF BUSINESS FOR HOSKINS AT
  • FIRST, AND THERE'S AN OUT.
  • LET'S CHECK IN WITH GUY
  • HABERMAN.
  • GUY: BRUCE BOCHY COACHING HIS
  • FINAL GAMES HERE.
  • IT MIGHT NOT BE THE ONLY
  • DIFFERENCE NEXT YEAR.
  • A GIANTS OFFICIAL TOLD ME THE
  • FRANCHISE IS WHAT THEY TERM A
  • VERY HARD LOOK AT BRINGING THE
  • CENTERS IN IN RIGHT CENTER
  • FIELD, THE FAMED TRIPLES ALLEY.
  • SINCE THE PARK OPENED IN 2000,
  • IT HAS ALMOST 250 FEWER HOMERUNS
  • THAN THE NEXT FEWEST.
  • DURING BP, THEY PUT UP A FENCE
  • FOR THE FANS TO STAND AND WATCH,
  • WHICH GIVES YOU A IDEA OF WHERE
  • THE NEW FENCE LINE COULD BE.
  • MAYBE AROUND THE 400-FOOT MARK.
  • IT'S TWO PARTS, RICH.
  • ONE, INCREASED OFFENSE, AND TWO,
  • PLAYER SAFETY, PROTECTING THE
  • BULLPENS IN RIGHT-CENTER.
  • IN THE OFF-SEASON, BRYCE HARPER
  • SAID THAT HITTING HERE WASN'T A
  • FACTOR IN HIS FREE AGENCY
  • DECISION.
  • RICH: A LITTLE ROLLER TO SHORT.
  • SEGURA TO FIRST.
  • GUY?
  • GUY: IT WASN'T PART OF BRYCE'S
  • DECISION, BUT THE BULLPEN MOUND
  • IS SOMETHING THAT EVERY CORNER
  • OUTFIELDER HAS TROUBLE WITH.
  • THEY HAVE TO PUT THE BULLPENS
  • OUT IN RIGHT-CENTER AS WELL, AND
  • SOMETHING THE BULLPENS ARE
  • STRONGLY CONSIDERING.
  • RICH: YOU GOT IT.
  • IT'S DANGEROUS OUT THERE.
  • THE GIANTS HAVE HAD PLAYERS
  • INJURED ON THOSE BULLPEN MOUNDS,
  • AND A LOT OF GIANTS HITTERS
  • WOULD SIGN THE PETITION TO
  • SHORTEN THE FENCES IN RIGHT
  • FIELD.
  • HERE IS VOGT.
  • SHAWN: I THINK IT IS GOING TO
  • HAPPEN.
  • AS A PITCHER, I WASN'T A BIG FAN
  • OF IT, I LIKE PITCHING TO THAT
  • SIDE OF THE BALLPARK, THAT
  • VALLEY.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • BUT THE BIGGEST THING, GETTING
  • THE BULLPEN MOUNDS OFF OF THE
  • FIELD.
  • RICH: VOGT SERVES IT INTO
  • CENTER.
  • QUINN SHOWING OFFSPEED, RUNS IT
  • DOWN.
  • REALLY NICE INNING FROM AARON
  • NOLA, A MUCH NEEDED 1-2-3 FOR
  • THE PHILLIES ACE AS WE GO TO THE
  • SIXTH.
  • BUMGARNER BACK ON.
  • 3-0 LEAD FOR THE GIANTS IN SAN
  • FRANCISCO.
  • GIANTS AND PHILLIES, THREE MORE
  • TIMES, FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND
  • SUNDAY.
  • BRUCE BOCHY IS APPROACHING THE
  • HOME PLATE UMPIRE, FIELDIN
  • CULBRETH.
  • ABOUT WHAT, NOT SHORTEN --
  • NOT SURE YET.
  • MAYBE BRUCE WANTED TO REMIND
  • HIM, FOR IN-DEPTH PERSPECTIVES
  • CHECK OUT YOUTUBE'S LIFE GAME
  • COMMENTARY.
  • YOU MIGHT RUN INTO TOM MCCARTHY
  • THERE.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • A SELECT GROUP OF YOUTUBE
  • CREATORS AS WELL.

  • MATCHUP.
  • BLUE JAYS AT THE RAYS.
  • WE'LL SEE THE RAYS AGAIN.
  • AT CHAVEZ RAVINE AGAINST THE
  • DODGERS, SEPTEMBER 17.
  • AND THE CARDINALS AND
  • DIAMONDBACKS, TWO TEAMS IT
  • CERTAINLY INVOLVED IN THE
  • WILD-CARD CHASE.
  • CARDINALS VERY MUCH A PART OF
  • THE CENTRAL RACE AS WELL.
  • AND THE GIANTS MAKING A MOVE IN
  • LEFT FIELD.
  • STEPHEN VOGT WAS OUT THERE, AND
  • RICKARD NOW HAS ARRIVED.
  • SHAWN: I AM GUESSING IT JUST HAS
  • TO DO WITH DEFENSE, BECAUSE
  • STEPHEN VOGT WAS THE LAST OUT OF
  • THE FIFTH, AND HE'S NOT A
  • LEFT FIELDER BY TRADE, SO BRUCE
  • BOCHY GOING FOR DEFENSE WITH
  • RICKARD IN LEFT FIELD.
  • RICH: JOEY RICKARD, OUT IN LEFT.
  • HE STARTED THE YEAR IN
  • BALTIMORE.
  • SO, THE GIANTS HAVE A PAIR OF
  • BALTIMORE OUTFIELDERS IN THE
  • GAME RIGHT NOW.
  • RICKARD IN LEFT.
  • YASTRZEMSKI NEVER GOT TO THE BIG
  • LEAGUES WITH THE ORIOLES, BUT
  • WAS IN THE ORGANIZATION FOR A
  • LONG TIME, SIX YEARS.
  • ANDREW KNAPP, IN THE AIR.
  • YOU COME INTO THE GAME, AND GET
  • A FLY BALL.
  • BEN: THAT'S PRETTY MUCH WHAT
  • HAPPENS.
  • IT WILL FIND YOU RIGHT AWAY.
  • [LAUGHTER]

  • PHILLIES AND GIANTS, THAT HAVE
  • GOT TO BE IN THE TOP FIVE OF
  • BALLPARK FOOD IN MAJOR LEAGUE
  • BASEBALL.
  • THE PHILLIES, SO MANY GOOD
  • PLACES, ESPECIALLY OUT IN CENTER
  • FIELD.
  • WHAT DO YOU CRUSH IN PHILLY?
  • BEN: OBVIOUSLY THE CHEESESTEAKS,
  • HOAGIES ARE GREAT.
  • THE CRAB FRIES ARE PHENOMENAL.
  • FEDERAL DOUGHNUTS, THEY FRY
  • CHICKEN IN THE DOUGHNUT OIL AND
  • HAVE A SANDWICH, A SPECIAL SAUCE
  • THEY PUT ON TOP, IT IS
  • PHENOMENAL.
  • I'M PARTIAL TO A GOOD DELCO'S
  • ORIGINAL CHEESESTEAK.
  • RICH: CESAR HERNANDEZ GETTING
  • THE SPOT.
  • BEN: YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH
  • THE FOOD AT CBP.
  • IT'S A GREAT SCENE.
  • SHAWN: THE GARLIC FRIES HERE ARE
  • THE HIT.
  • THAT'S WHATEVER BUT HE GOES TO.
  • THEN YOU HAVE THE LOBSTER ROLLS
  • FOR $522, IF YOU ARE REALLY
  • CRAVING SOMETHING EXPENSIVE.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • BUT THEY ARE GOOD.
  • RICH: AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE
  • PLENTY OF THAT, HOT BEVERAGES.
  • SHAWN: ONLY HERE.
  • RICH: HERNANDEZ LINES THAT INTO
  • RIGHT CENTER FIELD, A BASE HIT.
  • BEN: FIRST ONE.
  • SHAWN: FIRST BASE HIT OF THE
  • GAME.
  • TOOK A PINCH HITTER.
  • RICH: JUST ONE MAN HAD REACHED,
  • RHYS WHO WALKED IN THE FOURTH.
  • AND THE CROWD ACKNOWLEDGING THAT
  • FROM BUMGARNER.
  • SHAWN: HE HASN'T MISSED WITH
  • MANY LOCATIONS TONIGHT, BUT THAT
  • WAS DEFINITELY A MESS.
  • TRYING TO GO IN, LEAKED OVER THE
  • PLATE UP, AND HERNANDEZ DOING A
  • NICE JOB SERVING IT UP THE
  • MIDDLE.
  • ACTUALLY MISSED HIS FIRST PITCH,
  • TOO, WHICH AS SUPPOSED TO BE
  • ON THE INNER PART OF THE PLATE.
  • RICH: CLEAN HAS FIVE BOUND --
  • QUEEN HAS FIVE -- QUINN HAS
  • FIVE BUNT HITS.
  • BUMGARNER HAS GIVEN UP A HIT
  • NOW.
  • A WALK AND THREE STRIKEOUTS, HIS
  • PITCH COUNT CERTAINLY LOWER THAN
  • NOLA'S.
  • SECOND BASE RUNNER FOR THE
  • PHILS.
  • HOSKINS IS ON DECK, AND THEN
  • BRYCE HARPER.
  • BEN: THAT'S WHY IT WAS SO BIG
  • FOR NOLA TO GET OUT OF THE
  • FOURTH INNING.
  • QUINN TRIES TO BUNT, GETS ON,
  • AND THEN THE MEAT OF THE ORDER
  • THAT CAN HIT THE BALL OUT OF THE
  • BALLPARK, MAKE IT A GAME AGAIN.
  • RICH: GABE KAPLER WOULD LIKE TO
  • SEE A FEW GUYS ON THAT PHILLIES
  • TEAM DO.
  • ROLLER UP THE MIDDLE.
  • COULD BE TWO.
  • CLEAN TURN BY GENNETT, JUST IN
  • TIME TO GET QUINN AT FIRST.
  • BUMGARNER GIVES UP A HIT, BUT
  • ERASES THE BASE RUNNER, AND THE
  • GIANTS HANG ON TO A 3-0 HIT.
  • GIANTS PLAYERS, SPIN THE
  • WHEEL TO FIND OUR THEIR FUSION
  • FOOD FATE.
  • LET'S FIND OUT.
  • >> POWDERED DOUGHNUTS, NOT A
  • FAN ALREADY.
  • PLEASE, NO.
  • NO.
  • POWDERED SUGAR DOUGHNUTS WITH
  • RANCH.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • I DON'T LIKE EITHER OF THESE
  • THINGS.
  • OH!
  • THAT'S TERRIBLE.
  • DON'T EVER DO THAT.
  • POP TART.
  • WHAT KIND?
  • THIS IS GOING TO BE BAD.
  • I LIKE RANCH AND POP TARTS, BUT
  • TOGETHER I AM NOT SOLD.
  • JOY HAVE TO EAT THIS?
  • WENT WITH HEAVY RANCH, TOO.
  • NOPE.
  • THAT WAS THE WORST ONE, BY FAR.
  • >> OREO, I WANT OREO.
  • MACARONI.
  • EEW!
  • MACARONI AND WHIPPED CREAM.
  • OOH.
  • BOTH VERY LIGHT AND AIRY.
  • WHIPPED CREAM DOESN'T RUIN IT.
  • DON'T KNOW IF I WILL EVER TRY
  • AGAIN, BUT NOT BAD.
  • RICH: THE GIANTS YOUTUBE CHANNEL
  • HAS PLENTY OF STUFF LIKE THAT.
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WANT TO PUT
  • RANCH ON POPCORN, BUT THE
  • YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR THE GIANTS,
  • YOUTUBE.COM/GIANTS.

  • 3-0, SAN FRANCISCO, BOTTOM SIX.
  • NICK PIVETTA, ONETIME STARTER
  • NOW OUT OF THE PEN, FIRES A
  • FASTBALL.
  • LONGORIA IS 2-2.
  • SWINGS AND MISSES.
  • SCOOTER GENNETT, KEVIN PILLAR,
  • BOTTOM OF THE SIXTH.
  • BEN: YOU ASKED ME BEFORE THE
  • GAME, DOES ANYONE USE AN ASH BAT
  • ANYMORE?
  • EVERYONE USES MAPLE, EXCEPT FOR
  • LONGORIA.
  • SHAWN: ONE OF THE ONLY SOLDIERS.
  • BEN: LAST OF THE MOHICANS.
  • SEE THE GRAIN ON THAT BAT.
  • AND HE USES A I-13 A SKINNY
  • HANDLE BAT WITH A BIG HEAD.
  • GUYS DON'T USE THE BIG HEADED
  • BATS ANYMORE, BUT I CAN ALWAYS
  • TELL.
  • HE'S NOT THE VERY LAST GUY TO
  • USE A ASH BAT.
  • HE SAID, I CAME UP THROUGH THE
  • MINOR LEAGUES USING THE ASH, AND
  • I STUCK WITH IT.
  • RICH: A GOOD BREAKING BALL BY
  • PIVETTA.
  • THE PHILLIES ROTATION HAS
  • UNDERGONE A FEW CHANGES,
  • STARTERS THAT MOVED TO THE
  • BULLPEN.
  • PIVETTS, SUAREZ.
  • SHAWN: THE REASON IT IS SO
  • DRASTIC.
  • NOW YOU HAVE THREE GUYS DOWN
  • THERE, WHO HAVE NEVER GOTTEN
  • BACK TO BACK DAYS, SO IT KIND OF
  • PUTS A DAMPER ON WHAT GABE
  • KAPLER CAN DO.
  • RICH: JAKE ARRIETA, VINCE
  • VELASQUEZ, THE NEWLY ACQUIRED
  • JASON VARGAS, AND DREW SMYLY IN
  • THAT ROTATION RIGHT NOW.
  • GENNETT, SNEAKS IT INTO RIGHT
  • FIELD.
  • SHAWN: SCOOTER LOOKING AT HIS
  • HANDS.
  • RICH: I AM SURE YOU OR SOMEONE
  • ON THE GIANTS TELECAST HAS TOLD
  • THE NAME OF HOW SCOOTER GENNETT
  • GOT THE NAME?
  • SHAWN: IT HAS BEEN TOLD A FEW
  • TIMES.
  • RICH: GOT YOU.
  • SHAWN: BUT NOT EVERYBODY HAS
  • HEARD.
  • RICH: MAYBE PHILLIES FANS
  • HAVEN'T HEARD.
  • SHAWN: A YOUNGSTER IN SARASOTA,
  • HE REFUSED TO WEAR A SEATBELT,
  • HIS MOM COULDN'T GET HIM TO WEAR
  • A SEATBELT, SO HE TOOK HIM TO A
  • POLICE STATION AND ASKED A
  • OFFICER TO CONVINCE HIM TO WEAR
  • A SEATBELT.
  • SO THE OFFICER "INTERROGATED"
  • HIM AND FIRST ASKED HIM HIS
  • NAME.
  • WELL, HE WOULD NOT TELL HIM HIS
  • FIRST NAME.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • SO HE PICKED THE NAME OF HIS
  • FAVORITE "MUPPET SHOW"
  • CHARACTER, SCOOTER.
  • SO WHEN THE OFFICER SAID, WHAT
  • IS YOUR NAME, HE SAID
  • "SCOOTER."
  • HE COULD HAVE PICKED FOZZIE, RIG
  • HT?
  • BEN: AND IT STUCK?
  • SHAWN: IT STUCK.
  • HIS FIRST NAME IS RYAN.
  • RICH: I LIKE SCOOTER.
  • SHAWN: I DO, TOO.
  • IT'S FITTING.
  • RICH: COULD HAVE BEEN KERMIT.
  • SHAWN: THAT PROBABLY WOULDN'T
  • HAVE STUCK, KERMIT GENNETT.
  • RICH: TOUGH TO DOUBLE UP
  • PILLAR.
  • HE BEATS THE THROW.
  • GENNETT IS ERASED.
  • OK.
  • THE BIGGEST INJURY.
  • ROBERTSON WAS SIGNED TO A
  • TWO-YEAR, $20 MILLION DEAL.
  • NESHEK IS OUT, A REALLY NICE
  • BULLPEN PIECE.
  • I MEAN, THAT'S JUST DEVASTATING.
  • BEN: REALLY IS.
  • NOT TO MAKE EXCUSES.
  • GABE KAPLER IS THE LAST ONE TO
  • MAKE EXCUSES,, BUT LOOK AT THE
  • NAMES ON THE LIST.
  • IT IS NOT EASY.
  • SHAWN: YOU LOOK AT THAT LIST AND
  • WONDER HOW THE CLUB IS STILL
  • TREADING WATER.
  • THAT'S WHAT IS REMARKABLE.
  • AND WE JUST SHOWED THREE
  • STARTERS IN THE BULLPEN.
  • SO THE STARTING ROTATION HASN'T
  • BEEN SOLID, EITHER.
  • AND YET THEY ARE STILL IN IT.
  • RICH: IT HAS BEEN REFERENCED,
  • SHAWN.
  • FOR A STARTER TO GO TO THE
  • BULLPEN MIDSEASON, A VALUABLE
  • RELIEVER'S ABLE TO WORK ON
  • CONSECUTIVE DAYS.
  • EVERY NOW AND THEN, YOU ARE
  • ASKED, CAN YOU GO ON A THIRD DAY
  • JUST GIVE ME AN OUT OR TWO.
  • BUT IF YOU ARE A STARTER AND YOU
  • ARE USED TO IT, IT CAN TAKE
  • LONGER THAN A WEEK OR TWO TO
  • FIGURE IT OUT.
  • BEN: CAN ALSO TAKE LONGER, TO
  • FIGURE OUT HOW TO PITCH OUT OF
  • THE BULLPEN.
  • I DID IT A COUPLE TIMES IN MY
  • CAREER, AND I COULDN'T CONTROL
  • MY HEART RATE IN GAMES.
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHEN TO GET
  • LOOSE, WHICH TAKES TIME AS WELL.
  • HOW LONG DO YOU NEED TO GET
  • LOOSE?
  • HOW DO YOU SLOW DOWN THE HEART
  • RATE, ESPECIALLY WITH TRAFFIC ON
  • THE BASES WHEN YOU NEED TO MAKE
  • A BIG PITCH?
  • ENTERING THE GAME AS A STARTER,
  • THERE IS NOBODY ON BASE.
  • YOU GET INTO THE RHYTHM OF THE
  • GAME.
  • THAT TAKES TIME.
  • SO FOR THREE STARTERS TO MAKE
  • THE CONVERSION TO THE BULLPEN,
  • LIKE YOU SAID, IT HANDCUFFS GABE
  • KAPLER LITTLE.
  • RICH: WELL, PIVETTA HAS FIGURED
  • IT OUT SOMEWHAT.
  • THAT IS FOULED BACK.
  • HIS NUMBERS HAVE BEEN GOOD,
  • SINCE GOING TO THE BULLPEN.
  • E.R.A. OF 2.31.
  • HE'S WALKED ONLY TWO, AND HAS
  • PUNCHED OUT 15 IN 11.2 INNINGS.
  • SHAWN: BEN, PIVETTA'S STUFF,
  • WHAT PLAYS OUT OF THE BULLPEN?
  • WHAT WAS THE DECISION?
  • WHAT DID THEY FEEL HE COULD
  • PROVIDE?
  • BEN: FASTBALLS AT THE TOP OF THE
  • ZONE, AND CURVEBALLS DOWN FOR
  • STRIKES.
  • WE HAVE SEEN HIM 97, 98, EVEN
  • 99.
  • BUT HIS FASTBALL JUST GETS HIT.
  • THERE'S NO RHYME OR REASON.
  • HITTERS JUST PICK IT UP.
  • THAT'S WHY THEY WANT HIM,
  • BECAUSE HE CAN KEEP THE BALL IN
  • PLAY, THEY WANT HIM AT THE TOP.
  • SEE WHERE THE TARGET IS FROM
  • ANDREW KNAPP.
  • RICH: RUNNER GOES.
  • PILLAR ON THE WAY ON 0-2, AND
  • THAT BALL SKIPS INTO CENTER.
  • PILLAR POPS UP, AND NOW HE'S AT
  • THIRD.
  • BEN: THAT THROW WAS A LITTLE UP
  • THE LINE INTO THE RUNNER, BUT I
  • DIDN'T THINK IT WAS THAT BAD.
  • SHAWN: A GOOD LOOK AT IT RIGHT
  • HERE.
  • IT WASN'T THAT BAD.
  • WE SAW KINGERY MAKE A THROW
  • EARLIER, WHEN THE BALL WAS MUCH
  • FURTHER UP THE LINE.
  • I THINK THAT'S A BALL THAT NEEDS
  • TO BE CAUGHT.
  • RICH: PHILLIES DID NOT HAVE A
  • GOOD DEFENSIVE SERIES IN
  • ARIZONA.
  • SEGURA ESPECIALLY.
  • HAD AN ERROR IN EVERY GAME OF
  • THAT THREE-GAME SET.,
  • PILLAR 90 FEET AWAY, AND
  • CRAWFORD IN A BIG SPOT WITH TWO
  • OUTS.
  • PIVETTA'S PITCH.
  • SHAWN: I WAS GOING TO SAY, AND
  • I'M GLAD I DIDN'T.
  • YOU GET THE RUNNER AT THIRD, AND
  • THE DIFFERENCE THAT MAKES, A
  • GROUND BALL IN THE DIRT.
  • TWO STRIKES, THAT IS WHERE YOU
  • WANT THE BALL, IF YOU'RE GOING
  • TO BOUNCE IT, THAT IS WHERE YOU
  • WANT TO MISS.
  • BUT WITH A RUNNER ON THIRD BASE,
  • AS A PITCHES YOU ARE LESS LIKELY
  • TO THROW THAT PITCH, IN FEAR OF
  • A WILD PITCH.
  • BEN: PHILLIES CATCHER'S THIS
  • YEAR HAVE BEEN REALLY GOOD
  • BLOCKING BALLS IN THE DIRT.
  • SEE, THAT PITCH RIGHT THERE.
  • THAT IS THE PITCH THEY DON'T
  • WANT HIM TO THROW.
  • OBVIOUSLY THE TARGET WAS UP.
  • BUT NICK PIVETTA AS A STARTER
  • WOULD THROW THAT PITCH, AND IT
  • WOULD GET HIT.
  • THAT'S WHY THEY WANT HIM OR AT
  • THE TOP OF THE ZONE.
  • SHAWN: I AM SURE THE VELOCITY IS
  • BETTER AS A RELIEVER.
  • BEN: I DON'T CARE HOW HARD YOU
  • THROW.
  • IF YOU THROW IT, YOU ARE GOING
  • TO GET HURT.
  • SHAWN: THERE IS AN ARCHED TO
  • THROW THE BALL UP IN THE ZONE AS
  • WELL -- ART TO THROWING THE BALL
  • UP IN THE ZONE AS WELL, AS
  • PIVETTA IS DOING.
  • IF IT IS TOO HIGH, HITTERS WON'T
  • OFFER.
  • IT HAS TO BE RIGHT AT THE TOP.
  • STARTERS ARE USUALLY TAUGHT TO
  • THROW THE BALL DOWN.
  • RICH: WITH THE MODERN SWING,
  • THAT'S WHERE PITCHERS HAVE GONE,
  • WITH FASTBALLS TO GET STRIKES,
  • AND TO GET OUTS.
  • BEN: J.D. MARTINEZ WAS TALKING
  • THE OTHER DAY, THAT IS WHAT THE
  • GAME HAS DONE TO, ESPECIALLY OUT
  • OF THE BULLPEN.
  • RICH: AND ALL ABOUT LAUNCH
  • ANGLE, THE GUYS WITH MORE OF AN
  • UPPERCUT SWING, 25 TO 30 DEGREE
  • UPPERCUT SWINGS.
  • THAT'S THE ONE PITCH YOU CAN HIT
  • OUT OF THE PARK.
  • THAT IS WHERE THE SPIN RATE
  • MEASUREMENT FOR FASTBALLS IS
  • KEY.
  • EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT SPIN RATE
  • WITH SLIDERS IN BREAKING BALLS.
  • BUT THE SPIN RATE WITH THE
  • FASTBALL, IT CAN STAY ELEVATED
  • LONGER AND BE TOUGHER TO HIT.
  • BEN: ALMOST A FASTBALL THAT HAS
  • THE ILLUSION OF TAKING OFF, WHEN
  • IT GETS TO THE STRIKE ZONE, THE
  • SECOND STAGE LIFE TO IT.
  • WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE PHYSICALLY,
  • BUT VERY HITTER IT IS TOUGH TO
  • GET ON TOP OF THAT PITCH.
  • RICH: CRAWFORD TAKES.
  • AND GUESS WHAT?
  • THE MAN IN THE SPOTLIGHT ALL
  • NIGHT IS COMING TO THE PLATE
  • AGAIN.
  • SHAWN: HAD A HUGE AT BAT IN THE
  • THIRD, A BASE HIT THAT GOT THE
  • INNING GOING, AND THEN A BIG
  • WALK IN THE FOURTH, SOME TRAFFIC
  • ON THE BASES, ALLOWING BRANDON
  • BELT TO DO SOMETHING.
  • FORTUNATELY FOR NOLA, HE GOT OUT
  • OF THE INNING.
  • RICH: BUMGARNER HAS HAD TWO
  • TERRIFIC AT-BATS.
  • 15 PITCHER, A NINE HIT SINGLE
  • AND A SIX PITCH WALK.
  • THAT GETS BY THE CATCHER!
  • HERE COMES PILLAR.
  • AND THE ERROR ON THE STOLEN BASE
  • COSTS THE PHILLIES.
  • BEN: YOU LOOK AT ALL THE
  • SCENARIOS OF HOW TO SCORE A RUN,
  • WITH A RUNNER AND TWO OUTS.
  • YOU JUST SAW ONE OF THEM, WITH
  • THE WILD PITCH BY PIVETTA.
  • THERE IS A NEW STAT TIM FLANNERY
  • AND I JOKE ABOUT ALL THE TIME,
  • THE RTI, "RUN THROWN IN."
  • HAVE TO LOOK AT AN RTI FROM THE
  • PHILLIES.
  • I THINK THAT'S A PERFECT EXAMPLE
  • OF NON-EXECUTION OF THE PITCH.
  • AND ANDREW KNAPP PROBABLY SHOULD
  • HAVE MADE THAT PLAY.
  • BUT IF YOU WANT TO MAKE THE
  • PLAYOFFS, THAT CAN'T HAPPEN, YOU
  • KNOW?
  • THAT PLAY RIGHT THERE.
  • YOU CAN'T LET ANOTHER RUN GO IN,
  • WITH HOW MADISON BUMGARNER IS
  • THROWING THE BASEBALL.
  • IT JUST CAN'T HAPPEN.
  • SHAWN: IT LOOKED LIKE KNAPP,
  • OBVIOUSLY THAT WAS A FASTBALL,
  • BUT IN THE LEFT-HANDED BATTER'S
  • BOX.
  • BEN: AND THEY ARE TOUGH TO
  • CATCH, THE ONES WHEN YOU AREN'T
  • EXPECTING THEM DOWN AND AWAY TO
  • A RIGHTY.
  • THEY GET ON YOU QUICKLY.
  • RICH: 2-1.
  • BUMGARNER'S SHIRT NEARLY CAME
  • UNBUTTONED WITH THAT LAST SWING.
  • TAKES THAT UP AND IN, AND HAS A
  • 3-1 COUNT HERE.
  • HE HAS HOMERED ONCE THIS YEAR.
  • 18 TIMES IN HIS CAREER.
  • IT IS OUT.
  • SHAWN: THAT WAS THE 20TH PITCH
  • MADISON BUMGARNER HAS SEEN
  • TONIGHT.
  • THAT COULD HAVE GONE EITHER WAY,
  • BUT FIELDIN CULBRETH GETS THE
  • CALL RIGHT.
  • BEN: I AM NOT BEGGING.
  • BUT IF I AM A PITCHER, I WANT
  • THAT PITCH ALL DAY LONG.
  • SHAWN: ESPECIALLY WITH THE
  • PITCHER UP.
  • BEN: IF I GET THAT PITCH, I'M
  • GOING TO COOPERSTOWN.
  • SHAWN: WE SAW SOME GUYS IN
  • COOPERSTOWN WHO GOT THAT PITCH
  • FOR A WHILE.
  • RICH: BELT, TOWARD THE LINE.
  • LONG RUN FOR JAY BRUCE, WHO IS
  • THERE AND MAKE THE CATCH IN FOUL
  • TERRITORY.
  • GIANTS ADD A RUN.
  • A EVENTFUL FIRST FEW MONTHS FOR
  • BRYCE HARPER AS A PHILLY.
  • WE LOOK AT THE UPS AND DOWNS.
  • >> WE ARE BEING TOLD 13 YEARS,
  • $330 MILLION.
  • BRYCE HARPER TO THE PHILLIES.
  • >> I CAN'T WAIT TO BE PART OF
  • THE PHILLIES FOR A LONG PERIOD
  • OF TIME.
  • >> IN THE AIR, RIGHT CENTER
  • FIELD.
  • FIRST IN A PHILLIES UNIFORM, A
  • BOMB INTO THE SECOND DECK!
  • >> THE FANS GET WHAT THEY WANT.
  • >> THAT BALL IS GONE, INTO THE
  • SECOND DECK!
  • BRYCE HARPER, IN HIS RETURN TO
  • WASHINGTON, HAS CRUSHED IT!
  • >> I THINK THEY JUST EJECTED
  • HARPER.
  • >> HARPER COMES OUT OF THE
  • DUGOUT, COMING AFTER MARK
  • CARLSON.
  • >> THE CHEERS EARLIER AFTER A
  • COUPLE GREAT CATCHES.
  • THE BOOS ARE BACK FOR BRYCE
  • HARPER AT HOME.
  • >> A $330 MILLION GUY IN
  • PHILADELPHIA.
  • IT IS JUST IN YOUR NATURE TO TRY
  • TO FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN.
  • >> BRYCE HARPER'S FIRST SEASON
  • HAS HAD UPS AND DOWNS.
  • >> NOT GOING TO THE ALL-STAR
  • GAME.
  • >> AND IT IS GONE!
  • HOME RUN NUMBER 200, HIT NUMBER
  • 1000 FOR BRYCE HARPER!
  • >> HE LETS THAT BALL GET DEEP.
  • SLOW EVERYTHING DOWN, LET THE
  • BALL TRAVEL DEEPER.
  • >> DRIVES IT TO CENTER.
  • GETS AWAY FROM POLLOCK!
  • THE PHILLIES HAVE COME BACK, AND
  • HAVE WON THE BALLGAME!
  • BRYCE HARPER TURNED INTO THE
  • HERO!
  • >> SIGNING THAT CONTRACT, THE
  • ROLLER COASTER RIDE OF A SEASON,
  • THE LONG GRIND.
  • EVERYTHING WILL TURN OUT GOOD.
  • RICH: THE LARGEST CONTRACTS BY
  • TOTAL VALUE.
  • FIRST, ARENADO, A-ROD, MACHADO,
  • GIANCARLO, HARPER, TROUT.
  • AND I THINK BECAUSE OF THE IN
  • NORMANDY -- ENORMITY OF THE
  • MONEY FOR HARPER, PEOPLE LOOK AT
  • HIS NUMBERS AND SAY, HE'S NOT
  • HAVING A GREAT YEAR.
  • BUT LOOKING AT THE NUMBERS MORE
  • CLOSELY, HE'S NOT THAT FAR FROM
  • WHAT HE TYPICALLY DOES.
  • BEN: YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
  • WE KNOW HE WILL STRIKE OUT AND
  • WE KNOW HE WILL HIT HOME RUNS.
  • IS THE HOME RUN DOWN TOTAL DOWN
  • THIS YEAR, YES.
  • WE STILL HAVE A MONTH AND HAVE
  • TO GO.
  • IF THIS TEAM IS GOING TO GO,
  • BRYCE HARPER HAS TO GO.
  • HE'S ONE OF THOSE GUYS, TALKING
  • ABOUT BUMGARNER, THEY NEED TO
  • CLIMB ON HARPER'S BACK AND SEE
  • WHAT THEY CAN DO.
  • BECAUSE THIS IS A GUY WHO CAN
  • PUT UP 10 HOME RUNS IN A MONTH.
  • RICH: BUMGARNER RIGHT NOW, A
  • ONE-HIT SHUTOUT INTO THE
  • SEVENTH.
  • 77 PITCHES IN.
  • HOSKINS HAS FLIED OUT, WALKED IN
  • THE FOURTH.
  • HARPER IS 0-2, BEHIND HIM.
  • SEGURA UP THIRD, 0-2.
  • THAT ONE IS CRANKED FOUL.
  • 37,000 IN ATTENDANCE TONIGHT.
  • SHAWN: BACK TO HARPER FOR A
  • MINUTE.
  • LOOKING AT THE NUMBERS, STRIKE
  • PERCENTAGE IS UP, CONTACT
  • PERCENTAGE IS DOWN.
  • SWINGING STRIKE PERCENTAGE IS
  • UP.
  • HE'S ALWAYS HAD PRETTY GOOD
  • SECOND-HALF STANCE, AND THIS
  • YEAR -- STATS, AND THIS YEAR IT
  • JUST HASN'T HAPPENED FOR HIM SO
  • FAR.
  • RICH: ON THE GROUND, IN TIME TO
  • GET HOSKINS.
  • HERE COMES HARPER.
  • WELL, LOOK.
  • IT'S, IN BASEBALL, ONE PLAYER,
  • IT IS RARE THAT PLAYER CAN
  • REALLY MOVE THE NEEDLE AND MAKE
  • THE DIFFERENCE.
  • I MEAN, MIKE TROUT'S GREAT RUN
  • INDIVIDUALLY WITH THE ANGELS IS
  • A GREAT EXAMPLE OF THAT.
  • SO THE HOPE FOR THE PHILLIES IS
  • THAT JAY BRUCE IS BACK, HE CAN
  • CONTRIBUTE, HOSKINS CONTINUES TO
  • SWING IT, AND THE PHILLIES FIND
  • SOMEBODY WHO CAN GET ON BASE AT
  • THE TOP OF THE ORDER TO
  • JUMPSTART THE OFFENSE.
  • BEN: WE HEARD GABE KAPLER SAY,
  • THIS IS A REALLY GOOD LINE UP ON
  • PAPER.
  • AND IT IS.
  • BUT THE BOTTOM LINE, THEY HAVE
  • BEEN TO INCONSISTENT.
  • IF YOU TOLD ME IN SPRING
  • TRAINING, AND THIS IS BEFORE
  • THEY GOT BRYCE HARPER, THAT THIS
  • TEAM WOULD BE INCONSISTENT
  • OFFENSIVELY, I WOULD HAVE SAID
  • YOU ARE FULL OF IT.
  • AND THEN THEY GET BRYCE HARPER.
  • I AM THINKING IT IS GO TIME,
  • LET'S HAVE SOME FUN.
  • THE ADDITIONS OF SEGURA,
  • REALMUTO, MCCUTCHEN, THEY ARE
  • UNBELIEVABLE.
  • RICH: OFF OF BUMGARNER.
  • FIRES TO FIRST, GETS THE OUT.
  • BEN: BECAUSE RIGHT THEN AND
  • THERE, YOU ARE ADDING AN M.V.P.
  • IN MCCUTCHEN, ALL-STARS IN
  • REALMUTO AND SEGURA, AND ANOTHER
  • M.V.P. IN HARPER.
  • A FANTASTIC PLAY HEREBY
  • BUMGARNER.
  • DIDN'T KNOW IF THAT WOULD GET UP
  • THE MIDDLE, THE WAY THEY HAVE
  • HIM SHADED.
  • SHAWN: I THINK CRAWFORD WAS
  • THERE, BUT IT MAKES IT A MUCH
  • EASIER PLAY, WHEN YOU CAN MAKE
  • THE SHORT THROW FROM THE
  • PITCHER'S MOUND TO FIRST BASE.
  • I MENTIONED EARLIER HOW
  • UNDERRATED HE IS FIELDING HIS
  • POSITION.
  • BECAUSE HE FINISHES VERY SQUARE
  • TO THE PLATE.
  • VERY GOOD FIELDING POSITION.
  • GOOD ATHLETE.
  • ALWAYS READY FOR THE GROUNDBALL.
  • BRYCE HARPER 0-3 TONIGHT.
  • RICH: SEGURA'S 0-2, 0-15 CAREER
  • AGAINST BUMGARNER.
  • BEN: TH -- SHAWN: THAT'S THE
  • ARM-SIDE COMMAND HE'S INTRODUCED
  • IN THE LAST COUPLE MONTHS THAT
  • HAS REALLY OPENED UP THE INSIDE
  • PART OF THE PLATE FOR HIM.
  • BACKDOOR CUTTERS AND SLIDERS,
  • FASTBALLS AWAY, BREAKING BALLS
  • AWAY.
  • BEN: FACING SOMEONE LIKE RANDY
  • JOHNSON, OBVIOUSLY RANDY HAD A
  • LOT MORE VELOCITY THAN
  • BUMGARNER, BUT RANDY WOULD GET
  • YOU SO CONSCIOUS OF THE PITCH
  • INSIDE.
  • WHEN HE DID THROW ONE ON THE
  • OUTSIDE CORNER, IT LOOKED LIKE
  • IT WAS A MILE AWAY.
  • SOMETIMES IT WAS ON PURPOSE.
  • SOMETIMES IT WAS JUST
  • UNINTENTIONAL.
  • BUT RANDY, WHEN HE WOULD
  • BACKDOOR THAT SLIDER, YOU WOULD
  • THINK, I CAN'T EVEN REACH THAT
  • PITCH.BUT YOU GO BACK AND LOOK
  • AT IT
  • , IT IS ON THE PLATE, IS A
  • STRIKE.
  • THAT'S WHAT MAD BUM DOES.
  • SHAWN: HE USE TO POUND INSIDE
  • ABOUT 60% TO 70% OF THE TIME.
  • RICH: SEGURA, AND CRAWFORD MAKES
  • THE DIVING CATCH!
  • SHAWN: THE LEFT SIDE OF THE
  • INNING HAS TO BE READY WHEN
  • BUMGARNER IS PITCHING, BECAUSE
  • WHEN HE DOES COME IN, THAT'S
  • WHERE THEY HIT IT.
  • RICH: ONE-HIT THROUGH -- SHUT
  • UP THROUGH SEVEN IS BUMGARNER.
  • BRANDON CRAWFORD SHOWING OFF THE
  • GOLD GLOVE.
  • SHAWN: TREMENDOUS PLAY BY
  • CRAWFORD, LAYING OUT HORIZONTAL,
  • MAKING THE PLAY.
  • RICH: IT IS A 4-0 GIANTS LEAD,
  • SEVENTH INNING STRETCH.
  • COME ON IN THE ROOF -- BOOTH.
  • BEN DAVIS, SHAWN ESTES, RICH
  • WALTZ, GUY HABERMAN AS WELL.
  • WE ASKED FOR THE KEYS TO
  • SUCCESS, THINGS THEIR TEAMS NEED
  • TO DO TO BE SUCCESSFUL.
  • BEN, WE START WITH YOU AND THE
  • PHILLIES.
  • BEN: FIRST AND FOREMOST, I JUST
  • TALKED ABOUT IT, BRYCE HARPER
  • HAS TO HIT SOME HOMERS.
  • THE SLOWEST HE'S EVER GOTTEN TO
  • 20 HOME RUNS IN HIS CAREER.
  • JUST HIT HIS 20TH LAST NIGHT.
  • FOR LEE'S NEED TO BE BETTER WITH
  • RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITION.
  • .210 AVERAGE WITH RUNNERS IN
  • SCORING POSITION, WORST IN THE
  • NATIONAL LEAGUE.
  • THE BULLPEN NEEDS TO BE BETTER.
  • 5.53 RELIEVER, ALSO THE WORST IN
  • THE NATIONAL LEAGUE SINCE JUNE.
  • CAN THEY DO IT?
  • I THINK THEY DEFINITELY CAN DO
  • IT, BUT I THINK FIRST AND
  • FOREMOST IT STARTS WITH BRYCE
  • HARPER.
  • SEE WHAT HE CAN DO, START TO BE
  • THE BRYCE HARPER THEY SIGNED,
  • CLIMB ON, BOYS, AND TAKE YOU TO
  • THE PROMISED LAND.
  • RICH: SEAN ESTES, THE GIANTS HAD
  • A GREAT MONTH OF JULY AND
  • STALLED OUT IN AUGUST.
  • SHAWN: THEY HAVE TO GET ALEX
  • DICKERSON BACK.
  • HE WAS THE SPARK PLUG TO THE
  • OFFENSE, .397 AVERAGE SINCE JUNE
  • 30, 1.200 OPS, CLUTCH WITH
  • RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITION AND
  • EVEN MORE CLUTCH WITH TWO OUTS.
  • THE STARTERS NEED TO PITCH,
  • ESPECIALLY THE YOUNG GUYS, BEEDE
  • AND ANDERSON.
  • THE ROOKIES HAVE STRUGGLED AS OF
  • LATE.
  • AND THE CORE GUYS, THEY HAVE TO
  • STEP UP.
  • POSEY, BELT, CRAWFORD.
  • RICH: HERE IS YASTRZEMSKI,
  • AGAINST PIVETTA.
  • FIRST PITCH, SWING AT A DRIVE TO
  • RIGHT, AND DEEP, AND GONE!
  • 11 FOR YASTRZEMSKI.
  • SHAWN: FENCES BACK, FENCES IN, I
  • DON'T THINK THAT MATTERS.
  • THAT'S A HOME RUN ANYWHERE, AND
  • ABOUT AS LONG OF A BALL YOU WILL
  • HIT TO RIGHT FIELD IN THIS
  • BALLPARK.
  • YASTRZEMSKI, FOR HIS 11TH HOME
  • RUN THIS YEAR.
  • BEN: WE SAW HIM HIT THE DOUBLE
  • OFF THE LEFT-FIELD FENCE.
  • AND THEN HE COMES BACK, AND YOU
  • ARE RIGHT, THIS IS BIG BOY LAND,
  • I MEAN BIG BOY LAND HERE AT
  • ORACLE PARK.
  • FOR A GUY WHO WAITED FOR HIS
  • OPPORTUNITY, WASN'T SURE IT
  • WOULD EVER COME, SIX LONG YEARS
  • IN THE ORIOLES SYSTEM, PUTTING
  • UP GOOD NUMBERS, TOO, NEVER
  • QUITE GOT THE SHOT.
  • HE GETS THE SHOT IN SAN
  • FRANCISCO AND IS MAKING THE MOST
  • OF IT.
  • SHAWN: I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING
  • TO SAY, FOR A GUY THAT WEIGHS,
  • HE'S 180, NOT A BIG GUY AT
  • 5'11", AND HE HAS A LOT OF POP
  • IN THE BAT.
  • HE WILL
  • I SAID THE SAME THING.
  • RICH: WHO DO YOU HAVE FOR ROOKIE
  • OF THE YEAR IN THE NATIONAL
  • LEAGUE?
  • I THINK PETE ALONSO GETS IT
  • BECAUSE HE IS IN NEW YORK AND
  • WHAT HE DID IN THE ALL-STAR GAME
  • AND HOME RUN DERBY.
  • BEN: IF HE IS AROUND FOR THAT
  • MONTH, IT IS CLOSER TO HIM YOU
  • THINK.
  • RICH: 2-2 TO POSEY.
  • DOWN THE THIRD-BASE LINE.
  • HOW COOL WILL IT BE
  • MID-SEPTEMBER WHEN THE GIANTS GO
  • TO FENWAY TO PLAY THE RED SOX,
  • AND IT WILL BE STRANSKY IN THE
  • OUTFIELD --YASTRZEMSKI
  • IN THE OUTFIELD.
  • BEN: I THINK IT WAS COOL WHY HE
  • IS WEARING NUMBER FIVE.
  • RICH: POSEY TO WRITE OPPOSITE
  • FIELD OFF THE WALL.
  • YASTRZEMSKI
  • HARPER IS TANGLED UP WITH THAT
  • WALL BEFORE IN SAN FRANCISCO.
  • SHAWN: THIS BALL LANDS AT THE
  • BASE OF THE FENCE.
  • I DO NOT KNOW IF IT WAS A BAD
  • READ.
  • HE THOUGHT IT WOULD GO FARTHER.
  • HE DROPS ANCHOR THEIR, THAT IS A
  • CATCHABLE BALL IF HE GOES AFTER
  • IT.
  • HE MIGHT BE PLAYING MORE
  • SHALLOW, BUT WHERE IT LANDED IS
  • A SPOT YOU SEE A RIGHT FIELDER
  • GET TO.
  • WE SAW THAT WITH HUNTER PENCE,
  • STEVEN DUGGAR, THEY HAVE BEEN
  • ABLE TO CATCH THOSE BALLS AT THE
  • WALL.
  • SHAWN: YASTRZEMSKI SAID WHY
  • DON'T YOU WEAR NUMBER EIGHT TO
  • HONOR YOUR GRANDFATHER?
  • HE SAID HE WANTED TO MAKE HIS
  • OWN IDENTITY.
  • HE IS DOING THAT.
  • RICH: HIS FATHER IS NOT HERE TO
  • SEE THIS.
  • HE SUFFERED A HEART ATTACK AFTER
  • HIP SURGERY WHEN HE WAS 44.
  • HIS DAD GOT TO TRIPLE-A.
  • HE WAS A TERRIFIC PLAYER AT THE
  • UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA, THEN
  • TRIPLE-A WITH THE WHITE SOX.
  • SHAWN: HE SPENT SOME TIME IN THE
  • ORIOLES URBANIZATION TALKING
  • ABOUT BEFORE THE GAME.
  • HE SAID HE IS A LOT LIKE
  • YASTRZEMSKI FROM THE RIGHT SIDE,
  • CAN PLAY ALL THREE OUTFIELD
  • POSITIONS WELL.
  • HAS SOME POP IN HIS BAT.
  • RICH: WHAT ARE THE HALLMARKS --
  • ONE OF THE HALLMARKS IS TO
  • IDENTIFY UNDERAPPRECIATED
  • ASSETS.
  • HE LEARNED THAT UNDER BILLY
  • BEANE WITH OAKLAND AND USED IT
  • TO HIS ADVANTAGE IN LOS ANGELES.
  • THAT BALL GETS THROUGH THE
  • CATCHER, ANDREW KNAPP.
  • POSEY AT THIRD.
  • SHAWN: YOU WONDER HOW DID
  • YASTRZEMSKI AND RICKARD -- YOU
  • SEE THE WILD PITCH ON A
  • CURVEBALL.
  • BEN: THAT ONE IS SO FAR IN FRONT
  • OF THE PLATE, YOU EXPECT IT TO
  • BOUNCE HIGHER.
  • IT STAYED LOW AND HUGGED THE
  • GROUND.
  • RICH: PHILLIES INFIELD IS IN.
  • 3-2 IS OUT.
  • SHAWN: YOU TALK ABOUT RECORD
  • PUTTING A NICE BAT TOGETHER.
  • -- YOU TALK ABOUT RICKARD
  • PUTTING A NICE BAT TOGETHER.
  • HE WAS KILLING IT IN TRIPLE-A
  • HITTING ALMOST .360 WITH 15
  • DOUBLES IN JUST 38 GAMES.
  • YOU WONDER HOW THE ORIOLES LET
  • YASTRZEMSKI AND RICKARD GO.
  • RICH: WHEN HE ARRIVED ON THE
  • SCENE, PEOPLE THOUGHT IT WAS
  • COREY DICKERSON THE ALL-STAR,
  • BUT THIS IS A GUY WHO HAD BEEN
  • INJURED A LOT WITH THE PADRES.
  • GIANTS IDENTIFIED HIM.
  • BEN: SOME TEAMS HAVE AN ABILITY
  • TO HAVE A RECLAMATION PROJECT.
  • LOOK AT THE YANKEES WITH GIO
  • URSHELA.
  • I SAW HIM ON MLB NETWORK TALKING

  • SPOT, MADISON BUMGARNER SET THE
  • TONE.
  • BEN: THEY PLAYED GOOD DEFENSE
  • AND MADISON BUMGARNER WAS ON HIS
  • GAME.
  • HE TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE
  • PHILLIES OFFENSE THAT WAS
  • STRUGGLING.
  • ONE HIT TONIGHT AND THREE TOTAL
  • BASERUNNERS.
  • THEY TOOK CARE OF BUSINESS AND
  • GRIND IT OUT THE AT-BATS AND HAD
  • A GREAT GAME AGAINST AARON NOLA.
  • YOU DO NOT SEE AARON NOLA EXIT
  • THE GAME AFTER FIVE INNINGS WITH
  • JUST THREE STRIKEOUTS.
  • RICH: IT HAS BEEN A COUPLE
  • MONTHS SINCE NOLA HAD A NIGHT
  • LIKE THAT.
  • SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS
  • BALLGAME, LET'S GO BACK TO
  • MADISON BUMGARNER EARLY.
  • THIS WAS THE BUMGARNER-NOLA
  • MATCHUP, AND BUMGARNER WAS
  • GETTING EARLY OUTS.
  • SHAWN: FIRST THREE INNINGS,
  • THREE FLY BALLS, SECOND INNING
  • THREE GROUND BALLS.
  • SIX UP, SIX DOWN.
  • A COUPLE STRIKEOUTS IN THE THIRD
  • INNING, BUT HE WAS ON HIS GAME.
  • RICH: AARON NOLA GOT THE START,
  • AND HE STRUCK OUT A COUPLE IN
  • THE FIRST.
  • BEN: HE WAS ABLE TO ELEVATE THAT
  • FASTBALL.
  • I THINK THE FIRST COUPLE
  • INNINGS, WE ARE ON TO SOMETHING.
  • THEN THE BOTTOM OF THE THIRD
  • HAPPENED.
  • RICH: CONSECUTIVE BASE HITS,
  • BRANDON CRAWFORD.
  • BUMGARNER LINED IT INTO LEFT.
  • BRANDON BELT POKED ONE.
  • SHAWN: THEY STARTED MOVING THE
  • LINE, AND CRAWFORD'S BIG SINGLE.
  • YASTRZEMSKI COMES UP AND SHOOTS
  • ONE THE OTHER WAY.
  • THEY SCORED A COUPLE ON THAT.
  • TAGGED IN THE FACE.
  • HE GETS THE R.B.I..
  • HELMET COMES FLYING.
  • ANOTHER COUPLE R.B.I. FOR HIM.
  • RICH: THE PITCH COUNT WAS
  • CLIMBING FOR AARON NOLA.
  • THIS IS THE FOURTH, THE GIANTS
  • WOULD LOAD THE BASES.
  • BUMGARNER ANOTHER EPIC AT-BAT.
  • SHAWN: HE WAS ABLE TO GET BELT
  • TO GROUND OUT TO HOSKINS.
  • NICE TO SEE AARON GET OUT OF
  • THAT.
  • THE PITCH COUNT STARTED TO CLIMB
  • UP AND THAT WAS IT.
  • RICH: NO HITS THROUGH 5.1.
  • HERNANDEZ PINCH-HITTING, AND
  • THAT IS THE ONLY HIT OF THE GAME
  • FOR THE PHILLIES.
  • SHAWN: THE SCOUTING REPORT, THAT
  • WAS NOT IN THE GAME.
  • RICH: ROMAN QUINN BOUNCED OUT TO
  • END THE SIXTH, BUT THE GIANTS
  • WERE NOT DONE.
  • NICK PIVETTA COMES IN OUT OF THE
  • BULLPEN.
  • KEVIN PILLAR WITH THE CHOICE,
  • ENDED UP STEALING SECOND.
  • JEAN SEGURA COULD NOT HOLD THE
  • THROW.
  • THAT ONE GOT BY ANDREW KNAPP AND
  • THE GIANTS GOT ANOTHER RUN.
  • BEN: SEVENTH-INNING, YASTRZEMSKI
  • COMES UP, THIS IS A BOMB.
  • IT IS AS FAR AS YOU ARE GOING TO
  • SEE.
  • TOUGH TO GET ONE OUT OF THAT
  • PART OF THE BALLPARK.
  • NINTH-INNING WILL SMITH GETS TWO
  • OUTS ON TWO PITCHES.
  • EIGHT WHICH IS TOTAL, VERY
  • EFFICIENT.
  • THEN RHYS, THIS WAS HIT WELL.
  • RICKARD IS THERE TO MAKE THE
  • PLAY.
  • THAT IS WHAT YOU HAVE SCOUTING
  • REPORTS FOR.
  • RICH: JAY BRUCE LOOKING FOR
  • ANSWERS AND SOME SORT OF SPARK.
  • THE GIANTS SNAP THEIR FOUR GAME
  • LOSING STREAK.
  • SAN FRANCISCO 10 HITS TO GO WITH
  • THEIR FIVE RUNS.
  • A WIN FOR THE GIANTS.
  • GUY HABERMAN CAUGHT UP WITH
  • BRANDON BELT.
  • GUY: BRENDAN, GIVEN THE SLOW
  • START TO AUGUST, HOW DID THIS
  • FIELD TONIGHT?
  • >> IT DEFINITELY FELT GREAT, GOT
  • THINGS GOING EARLY.
  • BUM DID HIS THING.
  • WE WILL USE THIS TO CARRY
  • MOMENTUM FORWARD.
  • GUY: WHAT WERE YOU SAYING FROM
  • BUMGARNER?
  • >> HE WAS KEEPING THEM OFF
  • BALANCE.
  • HE HAD A BUNCH OF PITCHES TO GO
  • TO AND THROUGH A LOT OF STRIKES.
  • GUY: BEFORE YOUR BASE HIT,
  • BUMGARNER HAD A NINE PITCH
  • AT-BAT, TIED THE LONGEST AT-BAT
  • OF HIS CAREER.
  • >> IT TICKS ME OFF WHEN PITCHERS
  • HAVE A BETTER AT-BAT HE HAD
  • MADE.
  • HE DID EVERYTHING FOR US, IT WAS
  • AWESOME.
  • GUY: HOW ABOUT WHAT MIGHT
  • YASTRZEMSKI HAS BROUGHT TO THE
  • TEAM?
  • >> YOU CANNOT QUANTIFY IT.
  • HE HAS BROUGHT A LOT OF ENERGY
  • AND BIG HIT.
  • RICH: WILD-CARD STANDINGS, THIS
  • IS A COSTLY LOSS FOR THE
  • PHILLIES BECAUSE IT MOVES THEM
  • OUT OF THE SHARE OF THE SECOND
  • WILD-CARD SPOT.
  • EVERYBODY ELSE IN THAT WILD-CARD
  • RACE ARE HAPPY INCLUDING THE
  • GIANTS WHO TAKE A BITE OUT OF
  • ONE OF THE WILD-CARD LEADERS.
  • BEN: HAPPY INCLUDING THE
  • I THINK IT WILL GO DOWN TO
  • THE WIRE.
  • RICH: WE PROMISED YOU BRUCE
  • BOCHY AT THE PODIUM.
  • WE DELIVER BRUCE BOCHY AT THE
  • PODIUM.
  • >> AFTER HIS START IN COLORADO,
  • BUMGARNER SAID HIS PERFORMANCE
  • WAS SIMILAR TO CRAPPY?
  • WHY WAS THIS NOT LIKE THAT ONE?
  • >> YOU SAW THE COMMAND, BOTH
  • SIDES OF THE PLATE.
  • HE DID A LOT OF EXTRA WORK IN
  • BETWEEN THESE STARTS AREA THAT
  • IS WHY HE CAME OUT HERE AND
  • WANTED TO TAKE CARE OF THEM.
  • THAT IS WHO HE IS.
  • WE SEE HIM BALANCE BACK FROM
  • ROUGH STARTS AS WELL AS ANYONE.
  • HE PUT IN A LOT OF TIME.
  • HE DID IT ALL TONIGHT, WHAT A
  • GREAT AT-BAT, GET THAT BASE HIT
  • TO GET THE RALLY GOING.
  • A COUPLE WALKS, A BETTER GAME.
  • WE NEEDED IT, BECAUSE WE WERE
  • FACING A GOOD PITCHER IN NOLA.
  • GOOD TO GET A WIN HERE.
  • GOOD BOUNCE BACK TONIGHT.
  • >> BRUCE, AFTER THAT SERIES TO
  • BEAT AN ACE, WHAT DOES THAT DO
  • FOR THE CONFIDENCE?
  • >> IT DOES A LOT.
  • TO BREAK OUT OF THIS WOULD TAKE
  • A GOOD START AND A BIG HIT, AND
  • WE GOT BOTH OF THEM TONIGHT.
  • IT IS A HUGE HIT HERE.
  • THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN
  • MISSING.
  • IT TOOK PRESSURE OFF OF THE
  • GUYS.
  • THEY JUST PLAYED WELL
  • DEFENSIVELY AND MADE GREAT
  • PLAYS.
  • WE HAD A LOT MORE ACTION.
  • A GOOD GAME FOR US, A ROUGH
  • THREE GAMES AGAINST WASHINGTON.
  • >> DID YOU HAVE A GOOD IDEA YOU
  • WOULD KEEP AN EYE ON HIM
  • TONIGHT?
  • HE DID HAVE A NO-HITTER GOING
  • DEEP INTO THIS ONE.
  • >> YES, ON BOTH.
  • YOU SAW I MADE A CHANGE IN LEFT
  • FIELD.
  • HE WAS SO GOOD.
  • VOGT NEW HE WOULD COME OUT IN
  • THE SIXTH INNING.
  • WITH BUM, I FELT GOOD ABOUT HIM
  • GOING TONIGHT BECAUSE AS I SAID,
  • HE IS SO GOOD FIGURING THINGS
  • OUT WHEN IT DOES NOT GO WELL.
  • HE IS HARD ON HIMSELF, THAT IS
  • WHY HE PUT A LOT OF WORK IN
  • BETWEEN STARTS TO GET BACK WHERE
  • HE NEEDS TO BE.
  • RICH: HE IS ON AN INCREDIBLE
  • RUN.
  • BUMGARNER, LAST NINE STARTS, 2
  • .74 E.R.A.
  • HE IS THE ANCHOR OF THE
  • ROTATION.
  • HAVING HIM OUT THERE GIVES THEM
  • A SHOT.
  • SHAWN: THEY WOULD LIKE HIM TO
  • PITCH EVERY DAY, THAT WOULD BE
  • IDEAL BUT IT IS NOT GOING TO
  • HAPPEN.
  • THEY NEED THE OTHER STARTERS TO
  • STEP UP.
  • WHAT IS IMPRESSIVE ABOUT MADISON
  • BUMGARNER, THERE HAVE BEEN FOUR
  • STARTS WHERE HE GAVE UP FOUR OR
  • MORE, AND THEN WHEN YOU LOOK AT
  • THE NEXT START HE HAS GIVEN UP
  • FIVE RUNS IN 27 INNINGS.
  • THAT IS A 1.60 E.R.A.
  • FOR HIM, HE TAKES IT PERSONAL
  • WHEN HE HAS A ROUGH OUTING.
  • HE DOES NOT ALLOW A BAD OUTING
  • TO SNOWBALL INTO ANOTHER TWO OR
  • THREE BAD OUTINGS.
  • HE FIGURES OUT HOW TO GET OUT OF
  • IT, HE WORKS HARD BETWEEN STARTS
  • AND RIGHTS THE SHIP IN A HURRY.
  • HE HAS BEEN GOOD AT HOME.
  • IT GOES TO SHOW YOU WHAT A
  • COMPETITOR HE IS, HOW HE TAKES
  • IT PERSONAL WHEN THE TEAM IS NOT
  • PLAYING WELL TO GO OUT THERE AND
  • STEP UP AND PITCH THE GAME OF
  • HIS LIFE.
  • HE RISES TO THE OCCASION IN THE
  • BIG MOMENTS.
  • THIS IS A HUGE WIN FOR THIS
  • GIANTS CLUB.
  • BEN: IT IS NICE TO HAVE THAT GUY
  • WHERE YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A GUY
  • GOING FOR YOU ON A PARTICULAR
  • NIGHT, AND YOU FEEL BETTER AS A
  • COLLECTIVE UNIT.
  • FOR THE PHILLIES, IT IS AARON
  • NOLA, HE DID NOT GET IT DONE
  • TONIGHT.
  • FOR THE GIANTS IT IS MAD BUM.
  • IT IS DEFINITELY HELPS AND MAKES
  • YOU RELAX MORE.
  • SHAWN: IT TAKES PRESSURE OFF THE
  • OFFENSE, THEY FEEL THEY DO NOT
  • HAVE TO PUT UP EARLY RUNS.
  • THEY KNEW COMING IN IT WOULD BE
  • TOUGH TO SCORE.
  • THEY WERE ABLE TO GET A COUPLE
  • ZEROS IN THE FIRST COUPLE
  • INNINGS AND BROKE THROUGH IN THE
  • THIRD INNING.
  • IT IS NOT A COINCIDENCE THEY
  • BROKE THROUGH BECAUSE OF
  • MADISON BUMGARNER'S AT BAT.
  • BEN: HE CHEWED UP A LOT OF
  • NOLA'S PITCH COUNT.
  • RICH: HOW DID WE DO, VINTAGE MAD
  • BUM.
  • BEN: ONE HIT BASEBALL THROUGH
  • SEVEN INNINGS.
  • HE GOT A COUPLE MORE HITS.
  • THEN THEY PITCH AROUND HIM.
  • KIND OF KIDDING, OF COURSE.
  • HE SAW 15 PITCHES, OR 20 PITCHES
  • IN THREE AT-BATS.
  • A COUPLE WALKS AND A BASE HIT.
  • HE WALKED ONE AND GAVE UP ONE.
  • RICH: THE GIANTS NEEDED
  • FOUNDATION SUPPORT, THE CORE,
  • CRAWFORD, BELT, POSEY, LONGORIA.
  • BELT LOOKED GOOD AT THE PLATE.
  • SHAWN: AS A UNIT, THEY HAD
  • BETTER AT-BAT.
  • BELT GOT AN R.B.I..
  • RICH: POWER OUTAGE, HARPER
  • HOMERED YESTERDAY, BUT THE
  • PHILLIES WERE KEPT IN THE YARD.
  • BEN: THE HARDEST HIT WAS THE ONE
  • RHYS HOSKINS HIT TO LEFT FIELD.
  • IF THE PHILLIES DO NOT HIT HOME
  • RUNS, THEY DO NOT SCORE OR
  • MANUFACTURER RUN'S.
  • THEY NEED TO HIT THE BALL OUT OF
  • THE BALLPARK AND DID NOT DO THAT
  • TONIGHT.
  • RICH: HE USED THE WORD SNOWBALL,
  • AND I AM NOT SAYING JUST THE
  • PHILLIES, BUT THERE ARE TEAMS IN
  • WILD-CARD RACES WHO HAVE LOST A
  • FEW GAMES.
  • THE GIANTS FELT LIKE THAT COMING
  • IN, AND THEY DO NOT WANT TO LET
  • IT SNOWBALL, A BAD WEEK TURNING
  • INTO A BAD MONTH.
  • THAT IS THE CHALLENGE FOR THE
  • PHILLIES, THREE MORE GAMES HERE.
  • THEY COULD END UP HAVING A NICE
  • SERIES IN THE RACE THE MEMORIES
  • OF ARIZONA, AND GO BACK HOME TO
  • DIG BACK IN IT.
  • LET'S GO TO THE PHILLIES
  • CLUBHOUSE AND LISTEN TO GABE
  • KAPLER.
  • >> BUMGARNER HAD A FASTBALL THAT
  • WAS NOT HIGH VELOCITY BUT WAS
  • HEAVY.
  • HE WAS ABLE TO PUT IT WHERE HE
  • WANTED.
  • WE DID NOT MAKE HIM WORK HARD
  • ENOUGH, SIMPLE AS THAT.
  • MAKE GOOD PITCHERS WORK HARD AND
  • FIGHT FOR EVERY INCH.
  • WE WERE NOT ABLE TO RUN HIS
  • PITCH COUNT UP AT ALL.
  • >> HE HAD 21 CALLED STRIKES.
  • >> YES, LOCATING.
  • THAT TELLS US GUYS WERE PREPARED
  • TO ATTACK THE FASTBALL AND THE
  • CUTTER, AND BUMGARNER WAS
  • PUTTING IT WHERE HE WANTED IT.
  • WE HAVE TO FIND WAYS TO SCRATCH
  • AND CLAW TO REACH BASE, AND WE
  • WERE NOT ABLE TO TWO TONIGHT,
  • UNACCEPTABLE.
  • >> YOU TALKED ABOUT HOW DESPITE
  • THE STRUGGLES TO MAKE PLAYOFF
  • POSITION, HOW DO YOU STOP THIS
  • FROM SLIDING INTO A PROLONGED
  • STRETCH?
  • >> BY BELIEVING IN OUR PLAYERS,
  • KEEPING THE MOOD LIGHT, FOCUSED,
  • NEVER PANICKING, TRUSTING THE
  • TALENT IN THIS ROOM.
  • >> WHAT DID YOU THINK OF NOLA?
  • >> IN THE THE THIRD INNING HE HA
  • HARD TIME COMMANDING THE
  • FASTBALL.
  • HE HAD A HARD TIME PUTTING SOME
  • HITTERS AWAY.
  • HE RAN HIS PITCH COUNT UP AND
  • HAD A HARD TIME PUTTING
  • BUMGARNER AWAY.
  • HE WENT FIVE INNINGS BUT NOT HIS
  • BEST OUTING.
  • >> WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT STAYING
  • LOOSE AND BEING LIGHT, IT IS
  • HUMAN NATURE TO PRESS IN A
  • SITUATION LIKE THIS.
  • WHAT DO YOU DO AS A MANAGER?
  • >> YOU MAKE A CONSCIOUS EFFORT
  • TO INSTILL CONFIDENCE, REMIND
  • THEM HOW GOOD THEY ARE AND HOW
  • LONG THEY HAVE DONE THIS WELL
  • AND TIMES WHEN THINGS WERE
  • CLICKING, AND WHEN WE WERE ABLE
  • TO SCRATCH RUNS OUT AND SCORE IN
  • BIGGER INNINGS.
  • THESE GUYS KNOW HOW GOOD THEY
  • ARE, AND THEIR TRUE TALENT WILL
  • RISE TO THE TOP.
  • WE WILL PROBABLY HAVE HIM DOWN
  • FOR A COUPLE DAYS AND READY TO
  • GO ON SUNDAY, THAT IS THE MOST
  • LIKELY SCENARIO.
  • WE WANT TO GET MULTIPLE INNINGS
  • FROM HIM ON SUNDAY.
  • >> HOW DID JAY BRUCE LOOK?
  • >> HE LOOKED FINE.
  • HE WAS READY, BAT SPEED WAS
  • THERE.
  • RICH: THE MESSAGES, DON'T PANIC
  • FROM GABE KAPLER.
  • IF YOU ARE NEW TO MAJOR LEAGUE
  • BASEBALL ON YOUTUBE, YOU FOUND
  • OUT TONIGHT WE GET TO DO THINGS
  • OTHER TELECASTS DO NOT DO
  • BECAUSE WE HAVE TIME BETWEEN
  • INNINGS.
  • WE GET LONGFORM INTERVIEWS WITH
  • MANAGERS, AND WE WANT TO GO BACK
  • TO ONE OF THE ANSWERS FROM BRUCE
  • BOCHY ABOUT THE FACT THAT
  • MADISON BUMGARNER DID NOT GET
  • TRADED.
  • HOW DID BRUCE BOCHY FEEL ABOUT
  • THAT?
  • >> 10 DAYS AGO WE DO NOT KNOW IF
  • HE WOULD MAKE THIS START, HIS
  • FIRST START SINCE THE DEADLINE.
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE HIM
  • OUT THERE?
  • >> THE FIRST THING I DID AFTER
  • THE DEADLINE WAS GO AND HUG HIM.
  • HE MEANS A LOT TO ME.
  • RICH: LAST NINE STARTS, THESE
  • ARE THE NUMBERS WE TALK ABOUT.
  • 2.78 E.R.A..
  • GIANTS HAVE WON EIGHT OF THEIR
  • LAST NINE.
  • PICK A GAME YOU WANT TO SEE.
  • BEN: I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE
  • BRAVES AND THE ROCKIES.
  • SHAWN: I WANT TO SEE THE TWINS
  • AND BREWERS, WHICH IS THE NEXT
  • ONE.
  • RICH: LET'S GET STARTED FOR
  • TWINS AND BREWERS.
  • >> THE BREW CREW ON TOP.
  • >> SOLID PITCHING, TIMELY
  • HITTING.
  • >> VERY GOOD DEFENSE.
  • >> LORENZO CAIN TO WIN THE GAME,
  • NOT SOLID PITCHING, TIMELY
  • HITTING.
  • TODAY.
  • >> CHRISTIAN YELICH.
  • >> WHEN YOU ARE HOT LIKE HE IS,
  • YOU CAN HIT HOME RUNS WITH ONE
  • HAND.
  • >> HERE COMES CAIN.
  • >> CHRISTIAN YELICH HIT A
  • ROCKET.
  • >> THE TWINS HAVE DONE IT AGAIN.
  • >> POLANCO WITH THE CYCLE.
  • >> HE IS THE FIRST TWINS SWITCH
  • HITTER TO HAVE HIT FOR THE
  • CYCLE.
  • >> BECKETT GOES THREE HOMER
  • NIGHT.
  • >> HE IS HAVING HIMSELF A NIGHT.
  • >> SECOND TIME IN HIS CAREER HE
  • HAS COME TO CLEVELAND THEN HIT
  • THREE HOMERS.
  • >> HE HITS A ROCKET.
  • >> MOUSTAKAS DRIVES ONE DEEP
  • RIGHT CENTER FIELD.
  • >> MIKE MOUSTAKAS DOES IT AGAIN.
  • >> IT MIGHT BE THREE.
  • >> A TRIPLE PLAY!
  • >> SANO TO THE BAG, THERE IS
  • ONE, THERE IS TWO, ANOTHER
  • TRIPLE PLAY.
  • UNBELIEVABLE!
  • >> BACK TO THE WALL, HE DID IT
  • AGAIN!
  • >> LORENZO CAIN ROBS ESCOBAR OF
  • A HOME RUN.
  • >> NELSON CRUZ WITH THREE
  • MISSILES BACK TO THE WALL, HE DT
  • TONIGHT.
  • >> THE HOTTEST PLAYER IN ALL OF
  • BASEBALL IS NELSON CRUZ.
  • RICH: OUR NEXT YOUTUBE GAME OF
  • THE WEEK IS THE TWINS AND
  • BREWERS.
  • THE TWINS OPENED THAT CRUCIAL
  • FOUR GAME SERIES, AND THE
  • INDIANS KEPT NELSON CRUZ INSIDE
  • THE YARD.
  • THAT MARGIN GROWS TIGHTER.
  • BEN: HE IS 107 YEARS OLD AND
  • STILL HITTING BOMBS.
  • RICH: THE CHRISTIAN YELICH SHOW,
  • THE BREWERS CAME SO CLOSE LAST
  • YEAR, AND WOULD LIKE ANOTHER
  • CRACK AT THAT.
  • SHAWN: THEY HIT A LOT OF HOME
  • RUNS TOO.
  • YOU WILL SEE A LOT OF HOME RUNS
  • IN THAT GAME.
  • BREWERS FIGHTING OR THEIR LIVES.
  • WITH THE CARDINALS IN CUBS AND
  • IT, THEY ARE THE SECOND
  • WILD-CARD TEAM IN THE NATIONAL
  • LEAGUE.
  • THE TWINS TRYING TO FEND OFF THE
