After oh-fers in his first two playoff games, Neal paced the Giants' offense in their third playoff game, this time collecting three of their ten hits.  Ford and Peguero had the Giants' other multi-hit lines as both hitters also reached base three times.  Peguero has a .400 AVG through three post-season games.  Gillaspie added a double and a walk.

Surkamp, who had a 3.30 ERA in 23 Sally League starts this year, did not fare well in his Cal League debut.  Odle, whose regular season ERA was above 5.25, provided effective long relief with 4.0 scoreless IP.  Verdugo had 2 K in a perfect 7th inning in his Cal League debut.
