|Conrad's 3rd Error Gives Giants Win in NLDS
|ATLANTA (AP) -- San Francisco rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Brooks Conrad's third error of the game to claim the lead in the NL division series Sunday.
The Giants are up two games to one and can close out the best-of-five series Monday night.
The Braves did nothing against Jonathan Sanchez, managing only two hits in 7 1-3 innings, before pinch-hitter Eric Hinske lined a two-run homer off Sergio Romo for a 2-1 lead.
Atlanta didn't have closer Billy Wagner, out with a pulled muscle on his left side. Rookie reliever Craig Kimbrel was within one out of the save before the Giants rallied.
Aubrey Huff tied it with a run-scoring single off Mike Dunn. Then, Buster Posey's hard grounder toward second went under Conrad's glove to bring home the winning run.
