SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — Angel Pagan hit a game-ending double that Jay Bruce misplayed in right field with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the San Francisco Giants a four-game series split with a 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.
Buster Posey poked a pitch from Jose Arredondo (4-2) down the right-field line that bounced into the stands for a two-out double.
Then Pablo Sandoval was walked intentionally to set the stage for a wild finish.
The crowd let out a sigh when Bruce drifted under Pagan’s fly ball to right until those whipping winds along the bay carried the ball over his head. The 42,039 from the sold-out stands at AT&T Park erupted, Pagan tossed his helmet and the Giants streamed out
of the dugout in celebration.
Santiago Casilla (2-3) blew the save in the ninth but worked out of a bases-loaded jam with no outs to give San Francisco a shot.
