Cubs 6, Giants 5
John Bowker launches his ninth homer of the year. (Jeff Chiu/AP)
The Giants battled back twice, getting John Bowker's first career Splash Hit homer to cut the Cubs' lead to one, then seeing Ray Durham belt a three-run homer to tie the game in the seventh. But Tyler Walker surrendered a homer in the eighth, which stood up as the difference in the game.
