Here's a tip: If you have something illegal in your car, don't bring attention to yourself. Deputies who responded to reports of loud, vulgar music blaring from a vehicle parked at a Key Largo, Florida, park arrested a 19-year-old. Not because of the music -- for marijuana.

San Francisco, CA. -- The Giants can't wait for Monday.

"I hope I can sleep tonight," center fielder Angel Pagan said.

First, they allowed themselves to revel in Sunday.

"This night probably will never be forgotten by a lot of people," right fielder Hunter Pence said.

That's because it put the Giants in position to complete the ascent that seemed so arduous a few days ago.

They evened the National League Championship Series at three games apiece with their 6-1 triumph in Game 6 at AT&T Park. Ryan Vogelsong struck out a career-high nine batters in seven innings and Marco Scutaro lined a two-run double in a four-run, second-inning uprising.
