Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - The San Francisco Giants staved off
elimination Tuesday and did so by not driving in a run with a hit.
Buster Posey scored on third baseman Scott Rolen's two-out error in the top of
the 10th inning, and the Giants edged the Cincinnati Reds, 2-1, at Great
American Ball Park, a venue that had recently not been kind to the NL West
The third game of this Division Series was dominated by stellar pitching.
San Francisco entered the 10th with only one hit, a two-out single in the
sixth by Marco Scutaro off Cincinnati's Homer Bailey, who struck out 10 and
walked one over seven frames.
Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton (0-1) gave up back-to-back singles to Posey and
Hunter Pence before fanning Brandon Belt and Xavier Nady. Posey then scored
when Rolen bobbled a chopper and Joaquin Arias beat the throw to first base.
Ryan Hanigan's passed ball had allowed the Giants catcher to get to third.
Sergio Romo (1-0) secured the win by tossing his second straight 1-2-3 inning.
