With two outs in the ninth and the Giants hoping to send the game into extra innings for the third straight day, Eugenio Velez committed the third San Francisco error of the game, allowing the winning run to score. Rich Aurilia and Jose Castillo provided most of the Giants' offense, combining to drive in all five runs.
