They drove in a couple more runs in the second. Rueter brought down a bunt to bring in a run. David Doster popped up in the infield. Cubs second baseman, Todd Walker, ran to catch it, but he slipped and the ball fell in front of him.
With Carlos Zambrano on the mound in the fourth and the bases loaded, Zambrano issued a walk to A. J. Pierzynski. It was now 4-1 Giants.
The Giants tacked on another run in the ninth. Catcher Alberto Castillo, blooped an RBI single into left center field.
Notes: In the fourth inning, Giants first baseman Lance Niekro chased a popup in foul territory. With the muddy field, Niekro slipped and fell, twisting his ankle, but it was not a serious injury.
