World Series update: Giants come back in third, tie game, 2-2

October 27, 2010 |  6:06 pm

The hitting that frustrated Philadelphia's ace-laden staff in the National League Championship Series made an appearance in the third inning for San Francisco.

Freddy Sanchez drove in the Giants' first run on a double before Buster Posey drove in Andres Torres from second on a single to center field to tie the score, 2-2, heading into the fourth inning.

Edgar Renteria scored the Giants' first run after reaching base on a fielding error by third baseman Michael Young and Torres reached after getting hit by a pitch.

Cliff Lee managed to get out of the inning by striking out Pat Burrell (who went down looking) and Cody Ross.

San Francisco starter Tim Lincecum seems to be finding his rhythm after giving up a run in the first two innings for only the fourth time in his career. The Giants went down 1-2-3 in the inning after Josh Hamilton, Vladimir Guerrero and Nelson Cruz popped out.
