"You get guys out there, and you need stoppers, and that's what those guys did," starting pitcher Noah Lowry said. "They came out and did a good job, and they did it with authority."Lowry didn't do too shabby, himself. He wasn't pleased with the home run he gave up in the third, but he threw a masterful game. The left-hander located his pitches well all night, holding the Blue Jays to two runs on four hits in six innings, and it was just enough. "Those are the ones you want to win -- the tight ones," Klesko said. It was Klesko's birthday, but he was the one giving the presents. Klesko provided two RBIs in his first two at-bats, scored the go-ahead run in the third and launched a double to left in the seventh. The rest of the Giants' bats were cracking, too. Barry Bonds found his swing on Monday night, blasting a 438-foot homer, and he continued to use it on Tuesday. Bonds didn't hit a home run, but he did line two balls off the right-field wall. Bonds went 2-for-2 with a double and two walks. Outfielder Nate Schierholtz made his first Major League start and proved how valuable he can be for an offense. In his first two at-bats, Schierholtz moved leadoff man Roberts in scoring position. Schierholtz will be back in right field on Wednesday and during the Boston series while Bonds is DH. It is still uncertain if Winn will be out there with him or if his strained right rib cage will keep him out of the lineup.
