Pablo Sandoval had four RBI.
Nick Noonan had another clutch pinch hit.
Brandon Crawford was brilliant in the field and great at the plate.
The bullpen was solid – Ryan Braun was 0 for 5 and struck out four times for the first time in his career … which apparently is called a “golden sombrero” …
but it just wasn’t enough to make up for Barry Zito getting shellacked for eight runs in the third, including a grand slam home run by Betancourt.
Still, a lot of fight in these Giants, they nearly pulled it off.
