OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

Early Tuesday morning, U.S. fighter jets, armed Predator and Reaper drones, and Navy ships launched airstrike attacks against ISIS, deep within Syria. While it is ironic that it was about a year ago at this time that President Obama was seriously considering strikes against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, sometimes threats emerge even greater than the last.

SPORTS CORNER

Madison Bumgarner couldn't be touched as the Giants defeated the Pirates 8-0 in the National League Wild Card Game at PNC Park. Bumgarner tossed a complete-game, four-hit shutout with 10 strikeouts to send San Francisco to the NLDS against the Nationals starting on Friday in Washington, D.C. Brandon Crawford's grand slam off Edinson Volquez in the fourth inning was all the offense the Giants would need.
