Pagan's three-run homer leads Giants over Reds
CINCINNATI -- Angel Pagan hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning, lifting the San Francisco Giants to a 6-5 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday.
Joaquin Arias led off the ninth against Cincinnati closer Sean Marshall (0-2) with a walk, and Ryan Theriot followed with a single. After pinch-hitter Brett Pill struck out, Pagan lofted a 1-2 pitch 386 feet into the left field seats to snap the Giants' losing streak in Cincinnati at seven games.
Javier Lopez (2-0) allowed two hits but no runs in the eighth to earn the win. Santiago Casilla struck out the side in the ninth for his second save in two opportunities.
