DENVER -- On the eve of its 20th anniversary, Coors Field did not disappoint. The ballpark's first game, played on April 26, 1995, was a 14-inning affair resulting in a Rockies win. Saturday night, the Giants and Rockies went to 11, with the Giants stealing victory on a run-scoring safety-squeeze bunt by Joe Panik.
Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau fielded the bunt and threw home, but the throw was too late to catch Nori Aoki, who slid home with the deciding run. The 5-4 Giants win -- their first in five tries against the Rockies this season -- evened the series and set up Sunday's rubber match.
