The Giants got another insurance run in the seventh inning. Darren Oliver got Travis Ishikawa out with a beautiful pitching sequence, but Edgar Renteria picked up his third hit of the night with a single to left field to get on base. Nate Schierholtz came up after him and had a decent at bat, but was eventually called out on strikes. Then Andres Torres happened.
Andres hit a monster double line drive to center field, Renteria took off early and was able to score on the strike. With Torres on second, Freddy Sanchez ground out to the pitcher, who tossed it to first baseman Mitch Moreland softly to get the out. The Giants now hold a three run lead in a shutout ballgame going into the bottom of the seventh inning.
