A routine fly ball from J.T. Snow wound up popping out of Pat Burrell's mitt and allowing all three runners on base to score for San Francisco. The miscue gave the Giants a 5-2 score and signaled the exit of Padilla. Terry Adams came on in relief and promptly gave up a homerun to Marquis Grissom to push two more runs across and push the San Francisco lead to 7-2.
The Giants had gotten single runs in the second and third innings. Jose Cruz stroked his seventh homerun of the season in the second to give the Giants a 1-0 lead and Barry Bonds doubled home Ray Durham in the third to make it 2-0.
The Phillies got single runs in the bottom of the third and fourth innings to tie the score. Ricky Ledee doubled home Jimmy Rollins in the third and David Bell singled home Jim Thome in the bottom of the fourth to tie the game at 2-2.
The Phillies final rally fell short in the bottom of the ninth. Tomas Perez reached base on a single and Bobby Abreu hit his second homerun of the season, making it a 7-4 game. Scott Eyre then walked Burrell, but Jim Thome flied out to left to end the ballgame.
