Derrek Lee continued his fine game with a single to left, and McCann continued what has been a great series with another single to left. That prompted the Giants to go to closer Brian Wilson. Melky Cabrera beat out an infield dribbler that Pablo Sandoval mis-handled to drive home the first run. After a Brooks Conrad sacrifice, Alex Gonzalez hit a ground rule double to left field, driving home McCann and Melky.
The Braves’ bottom half of the line-up finally made a scratch in the series, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Going to the bottom of the 8th, it’s now a fresh ballgame, and the Braves’ chances are looking way, way up. Go Braves!
