A little bit of small ball has given the Giants life.

After Gregor Blanco took a pitch off his shoulder and Brandon Crawford walked, Ryan Vogelsong laid down a sacrifice bunt that put two runners in scoring position with one out. Angel Pagan then launched a sacrifice fly to deep center field, pushing the Giants into a 1-1 tie with the Reds in the top of the third of this NLDS Game 3. Marco Scutaro hit into a groundout to end the productive frame.

Vogelsong is already up to 68 pitches, though, and the Giants have begun warming some arms in the visitors bullpen.

The fourth inning is about to get underway at Great American Ball Park in southwest Ohio.

      You seem overly excited about Homer Bailey. Any particular reason why?

    NARY A HIT through five for Bailey. Only 65 pitches.

    Drmonkey- had a lunatic Reds fan, friend of mine, tell me he’d no hit the Giants tonight. As improbable as it might seem, it’s also proving the Giants offense to be an historically impotent playoff qualifier. I’m just doing my part in an effort to jinx it. I don’t care for either team but prefer the giants to win tonight because MORE BASEBALL.

      Well, that is all rather odd but seems like something I would do…so carry on. Also, MORE BASEBALL is something we can all agree on.

    Marco Scutaro gets it done. Nice effort and hat tip to Homer Bailey. Reds must be THRILLED.
