Giants keep pace

Giants 3, Brewers 2
Eugenio Velez's defense was a major factor in the Giants' victory. (Darren Hauck/AP)
Matt Cain's scariest moment was during an at-bat in the third inning, when three consecutive Yovani Gallardo pitches came up and in during a bunt attempt. But Cain had few scary moments on the mound, Eugenio Velez made a lead-saving play in the eighth and the Giants stayed on the cusp of the Wild Card.
