Giants 1 - Phillies 1: Carlos Ruiz Home Run Ties Game Through Three

The Philadelphia Phillies evened up the game thanks to a Carlos Ruiz solo home run off Tim Lincecum. Lincecum managed to escape further damage when he struck out Ryan Howard with men on second and third.

Lincecum gave up a single to Halladay before Shane Victorino grounded into a double play. Placido Polanco then doubled and Chase Utley walked. After falling behind 2-0 to Howard, Lincecum allowed the runners to advance to second and third on a wild pitch Howard swung at for strike two. Lincecum bounced back with a strike to end the inning and escape further damage. Lincecum has thrown 45 pitches.
