Bobby Cox started his retirement a little sooner than he hoped for, as Cody Ross homered and drove in the go-ahead run with a seventh-inning single to lead the Giants to a 3-2 victory over Atlanta tonight.
Brian McCann homered and had 2 RBI for the Braves. Again, an Atlanta miscue hurt; Alex Gonzalez's error loomed large in the Giant's two-run seventh.
Madison Bumgarner got the win with six solid innings; Derek Lowe took his second loss of the series. With Billy Wagner, Chipper Jones and Martin Prado all injured, the Braves never got it rolling.
They visit the Phillies at noon on Saturday, October 16th to kick off the NLCS.
