Topic: Giants-As game inadvertently turns into

The Giants rallied to tie the A's with two outs in the ninth inning Saturday night on a play that left people making wrestling jokes.The setup: A's right fielder Stephen Piscotty was chasing a base hit that had rolled into the Giants' bullpen along the right field line when he ran into a chair being held by Giants reliever Mark Melancon. Piscotty appeared to stumble, and then he made a bad throw to home plate that allowed AlenHanson to score the tying  Tom Glavine Jersey run.Oakland argued unsucce sfully that Melancon interfered with Piscotty and Hanson should be placed on third base.                            A'S BULLPEN NEWS: Oakland acquires Mets closer Familia for prospects, cashA's manager Bob Melvin knows the hazards the on-field 'pens present.Melvin on Chair-gate: If it gets lodged in the wooden area, then its dead, but anything else is playable. Its always been a little sketchy down there with the chairs being moved and guys sitting outside of that area.
