On June 25, 2011 The Giants may not score a ton of runs, but they have a knack for winnin’ ugly. Today, they score the game’s lone run in the 7th on a bases-loaded balk by Cleveland’s Tony Sipp. The inning begins poorly for San Francisco, with Nate Schierholtz hitting a lead-off double, then slipping between second and third base in trying to stetch it to a triple and being tagged out easily; Miguel Tejada then reaches on a throwing error by 2B Cord Phelps, who later commits a second error on a ground ball by pitcher Matt Cain, before reliever Sipp commits the fateful mistake. Cain is the winner over Justin Masterson, who deserved a better fate.
