On a day of odd baseball, the Giants take home the first place prize as they defeated the Rockies 6-5 on a walk-off, one-out, two-run home run by Angel Pagan. The Rockies had taken a 5-4 lead on a Troy Tulowitzki solo homer to left field off of Giants closer Sergio Romo in the top of the tenth inning. Rockies closer Rafael Betancourt entered in the bottom half to attempt to nail down the save, but walked Brandon Crawford to lead off the frame. Guillermo Quiroz sacrificed Crawford to second base. Then Pagan drilled an 0-1 slider to right-center, scoring Crawford while he made the 360-foot trek around the bases to score the winning run.

The victory moves the Giants into a second-place tie with the Rockies at 27-22, a half-game behind the first-place Diamondbacks, who play the Padres later tonight.

    Thank you, Tim Flannery.

      He is by far the best thing about the replay of that, he was loving it!

    Now that is a painful loss. Go Padres.

    Yes, they win it in dramatic fashion. But the umps made two terrible calls that almost cost them the game.

    What a win! But…it was Brandon Crawford who walked to lead off the bottom of the inning.

    Crawford, not Belt. Crazy finish.

    That was badass.

    Makes up for the completely awful ump show Alfonso Marquez put on today.

    Two of the worst calls I have ever seen in a baseball game. Belt trying to score from third, slides his foot in under the catcher..who then drops the tag—he’s called out. then Scutaro trying to reach third–Rockies 3B misses a swipe tag by two feet- Scutaro called out. Unreal.

      Really? They were bad, but neither would make the top 10 in any year.

    How about “film at 11″?

    This makes me even more bored of the term walk-off.

    Lucky he made it or Flannery would have been the goat with no outs and Scutaro and Panda up next.
