8:00 p.m.: And with another 96 mph fastball, Wilson strikes out Shane Victorino and the side. Game One to the Giants, 4-3.
Game Two details: Air time is 5 p.m. PDT on Fox (KTVU-Channel 2 in the Bay Area). Jonathan Sanchez, Giants' left-hander, who started the deciding game against the Braves in the National League Division Series, will take on the Phillies' Roy Oswalt.
7:59 p.m.: A strikeout (Raul Ibañez, who watched a 96 mph fastball), a hit batsman (Carlos Ruiz), a strikeout (Ross Gload, who swings through another 96 mph fastball). Wilson's got two out, man on first.
7:49 p.m.: Giants fail to score after loading the bases with one out against Phils' reliever Brad Lidge. Wilson back on the mound to try to get save and the win for the Giants.
7:35 p.m.: Bottom of the 8th, and both teams are into their bullpens. The Giants' Brian Wilson just gave up a two-out single to Jayson Werth--but hey, he kept him inside the yard. But the big news is the preternaturally dark beard Wilson sports (yes, the same facial hair that gave birth to the fans' slogan, "Fear the Beard." In fact, the beard has its own career with its own biography. Here's the story). Now Wilson strikes out Jimmy Rollins--an East Bay native--and the game's going to the 9th.
