Baseball: Uribe's sac fly gives Giants 3-1 edge

-A A +A
By Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants keep showing that building a loaded, All-Star lineup isn't the only way to make a deep October run.

The second-chance players and homegrown talent can pay big dividends this time of year, too.

A club of castoffs and postseason newcomers is now just one win away from the World Series.

Juan Uribe, sore left wrist and all, hit a sacrifice fly off Roy Oswalt with one out in the ninth inning Wednesday night, sending the Giants past the Philadelphia Phillies 6-5 for a 3-1 lead in the NL championship series.

"We've got some characters on this club," manager Bruce Bochy said. "In my mind, they're like the Dirty Dozen, the castoffs and the misfits."

Boosted by yet another big hit from late-season pickup Cody Ross, four hits and two RBIs from rookie Buster Posey and a timely double from struggling Pablo Sandoval, the Giants pushed the two-time defending NL champion Phillies to the brink of elimination.

Philadelphia will send Roy Halladay to the mound against Tim Lincecum in Game 5 on Thursday night. It's a rematch of aces that Lincecum won in the opener.

"Two of the best arms in the game," Posey said. "We're in a good position. But at the same time, we know anything can happen in baseball."
