Gaudin pitched in and out of trouble all afternoon, only a Brandon Belt error allowed the run to score. Santiago Casilla gave up a home run to Chris Davis in the eighth while Sergio Romo worked in the ninth for his 28th save of the year.

The very next batter, Brandon Belt hit a ground rule double to put runners at second and third. They intentionally walked Buster Posey to get to Hunter Pence.
