  • Top 1st
    • Calhoun pops up to third in foul territory, but Longoria mishandles it and gives Kole a second life in the AB. It doesn’t matter as Webb strikes him out. Marte works a 3-2 count but grounds out to Solano. Walker rips an 82 mph pitch down the left-field line for a double. Webb escapes with a strikeout on Peralta.
    • Score: Giants 0, Diamondbacks 0
  • Bottom 2nd
    • Slater walks and Donnie Barrels follows it up with a barrel of a single, two men on no outs. Yaz knocks one to the track and maintains his 9 game hitting streak. Ruf replaces Slater as a pinch runner. Flores Ks and Longoria grounds into a double play to end it.
