Game 22: A running Ford gets the Giants the 3-2 win in extras

Cainer pitched well.  The Giants were offensively stagnant until Darren Ford came into the game as a pinch runner for Rowand in the 8th.

He scored after going 1st to 3rd on a Fred single (that maybe 2% of the league would be able to go 1st to 3rd on) and then a Huffy sacrifice.

Then he scored after reaching on a fielder's choice, going from 1st to 3rd on a pick off over thrown, and booking it home on Fred's ground out to 2nd base (Pirates Walker fielded a ground ball, looked Ford back, through to first and that's when Ford broke for home).
