Monell was the Giants' only real offense, contributing a couple solo HRs, the first to lead off the 2nd inning and the other with two outs in the 9th inning. Peguero had the Giants' only other hit, and Crawford drew their only walk. Crawford was also the only Giant not to strike out. Fairley, whose SO/AB during the regular season was 22%, had the hat trick. Townsend, the nearly 26-year-old whom the Angels signed as an undrafted free agent and who had a sub-.700 OPS this year, had one of his best games of the year with a homer, double, and single.
Marte pitched well enough, allowing just five of twenty batters to reach base. He allowed a run in both the 2nd and 4th innings. Correa allowed a run in both the 6th and 7th innings. Stolp pitched a perfect 9th inning. Richards, whom the Angels drafted 42nd overall last year, pitched quite well, facing just four batters over the minimum in 7.0 IP.
