Fun, fun, fun

Few things are as much fun as winning after midnight on the road.

It was a seriously clutch night for Ryan Vogelsong -- who pitched a perfect 11th, dropped down a perfect bunt in the 12th and closed down the Dbacks in the bottom of the inning. A great win. 

MLB.com's recap is pretty dry but I forgive them -- it was around 1 am in Phoenix when this got written...

PHOENIX -- The Giants scored on a D-backs error in the top of the 12th inning to pull out a 6-5 win on Friday night at Chase Field in a game that lasted 5 hours, 11 minutes.
Giants reliever Ryan Vogelsong, who earned the win, dropped down a perfect bunt for an infield single to load the bases against D-backs reliever Randall Delgado with one out in the 12th. Angel Pagan followed with a grounder to D-backs shortstop Cliff Pennington, who tried to go home for the force out but his throw sailed past catcher Welington Castillo and allowed the winning run to score.
Neither starter factored in the decision and were both long gone when the game was decided. D-backs starter Robbie Ray gave up a season-high eight hits, but held the Giants to just two runs in five innings and notched a career-high eight strikeouts. Giants starter Matt Cain allowed four runs on eight hits in five innings.
