Sports Night: Draft surprise for 49ers

49ers: Draft-day surprise

Does the 49ers’ pick in the second round of the NFL draft surprise you? If so, you have something in common with Jaquiski Tartt. Expecting to be taken in the third or fourth round, the Samford safety gets the call from the 49ers before he could even make his way to his own draft party. San Francisco later chooses Virginia pass rusher Eli Harold in the third round.

Raiders: Gamble on pass rusher

Three years after entering college as one of the top players in the country, Mario Edwards Jr. joins the NFL with a little less fanfare. The Raiders select the former Florida State defensive lineman with their second-round pick in the NFL draft on Friday with hopes the former five-star recruit can get back to that form by keeping his weight down as a professional.

Giants: Panik saves the day

Pinch hitter Joe Panik singles in the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Giants past the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night. San Francisco has won seven of 11 since ending an eight-game losing streak.

A’s: Rally from five-run deficit to beat Rangers

At first, it looked as if the A’s would continue their April slump into May. But then, something clicked. After trailing the Rangers 5-0 through seven innings, Oakland scores seven in the eighth to earn the improbable 7-5 win on Friday.
