Angel Pagan's walk-off single in the bottom of the 11th gave the San Francisco Giants a 3-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday afternoon to earn a split in this four-game series.
The lefty matchup between Madison Bumgarner and Wade Miley both threw up blanks through the first three innings. Tony Abreu walked leading off the bottom of the fourth and moved to second on a Buster Posey double. One batter later, Hector Sanchez singled home Abreu to give the Giants a 1-0 lead. Posey scored on a wild pitch by Miley to extend the lead to 2-0.
The Giants took a 2-0 lead going into the top of the eighth, when the Diamondbacks scored a pair of runs to tie the game at 2. The game headed into extra-innings and Sanchez singled leading off the bottom of the 11th. Sanchez was replaced by pinch-runner Ehire Adrianza, who moved to second on a single by Gregor Blanco. Pagan sent Giants fans home happy with a game-winning RBI single to give the Giants a 3-2 win and split in the series. It was the Giants 10th walk-off win this season and they are 7-8 in extra-innings. The Giants finish the season with a 12-7 record against the Diamondbacks.
Bumgarner earned a no-decision going six innings, allowing four hits, zero runs, nine strikeouts and threw 89 pitches. The Giants are 2-8 in his starts since the All-Star Break. Javier Lopez notched the win (3-2) on the day.
Sanchez led the Giants with three hits and Posey followed with two in the win. The orange and black left 10 men on base.
The 64-79 Giants open up a three-game series Monday night against the Colorado Rockies. Tim Lincecum (9-13) gets the ball in the opener facing Jhoulys Chacin (13-8). First pitch is scheduled for 7:15 pm.
