Eduardo Nunez just drove in the winning run to win the game 2-1.

Here's the top part of Henry Schulman's game story for the SF Chronicle --


Not that it matters much anymore, but midway through the game at AT&T Park on Tuesday night the out-of-town scoreboard revealed a 1-0 Dodgers victory against the White Sox, Los Angeles' 30th win in 34 games.
The Giants needed to snap their latest losing streak and beat the Indians or else lose their 60th game and fall 30 ½ behind the Dodgers. On July 18.
The Giants spared themselves the indignity with a 2-1, 10-inning win against he Indians spearheaded by a guy who had something to celebrate the moment he woke up.
Conor Gillaspie, on his 30th birthday, pinch-hit for Sam Dyson against closer Cody Allen and started the 10th by lining a double off first baseman Edwin Encarnacion's glove and into right field.
Denard Span was asked to sacrifice and dropped a beautiful bunt to nobody for an infield single that sent Gillaspie to third. Eduardo Nuñez then won it with a single through the right side that got pinch runner Kelby Tomlinson home.
The win tied the series and was played before a second consecutive non-sellout crowd of 39,151.
