Welcome to San Francisco

That was a pretty fine game tonight - two homers and a 3-2 vic in the 10th over the dodgers.

Maybe there is really something to this even year thing

Anyhow, that's one of the wildest 8th innings ever. Here's the story 

SAN FRANCISCO - Rookie Ross Stripling, who had never pitched above Double-A, was removed after throwing 7 1/3 no-hit innings in his Major League debut for the Dodgers on Friday night, and all he had to show for it was a no-decision as Brandon Crawford homered off Joe Blanton leading off the bottom of the 10th for a 3-2 Giants win..
Stripling was lifted by manager Dave Roberts after walking Angel Pagan with his 100th pitch and replaced by Chris Hatcher to a chorus of boos from the sellout crowd at AT&T Park. The first batter Hatcher faced, Trevor Brown, homered on a 3-1 fastball to tie the game. Before the inning was over, Roberts was ejected by plate umpire Jeff Kellogg for arguing balls and strikes.
The only player in MLB history to throw a no-hitter in his debut is Bumpus Jones, who did it for Cincinnati on Oct. 15, 1892.
