Braves-Giants Game 2 Score: 10th Inning Drama Keeps Game Tied Into 11th

Edgar Renteria smartly led off the 10th smartly, as Troy Glaus came in to man third, by laying a bunt down the third base line. Glaus had no chance with his bad knees and questionable shoulder, only having the chance to fall on top of the ball. Torres came up with the goal of bunting Renteria over, and it went straight back to Billy Wagner, who managed to throw to first base and complete the out before collapsing on the field in pain. The last thing the Braves needed was another injury difficulty, already short Saito and Jurrjens for the series. (not to mention the obvious Prado and Chipper).

That left Kyle Farnsworth as the next man to come in for the Braves, who were running out of relievers. He very quickly hit Freddy Sanchez, putting a man on first, and then went to a full count on Huff before walking him to load the bases. With the infield playing at half depth and the outfield playing way in, Buster Posey rapped into a double play turned smartly by Glaus, Infante, and Lee around the horn to sent the game into the eleventh
