Giants vs. Reds: NLDS Game 4 Video Highlights

Richard Langford@@noontide34Correspondent IOctober 10, 2012

In a game where both starting pitchers were terrible, the San Francisco Giants used a great offensive effort and excellent work from their bullpen to force a decisive Game 5 with an 8-3 win. 

Barry Zito got the start for the Giants, and he was doomed by a lack of control. He went just 2.2 innings but did a nice job limiting the Reds to just two runs in that rough stretch.

Reds starter Mike Leake was not as good at damage control. Leake lasted 4.1 innings and gave up five runs, which was more than the Giants needed because their bullpen went 6.1 innings and allowed just one run.

Tim Lincecum emerged as the big story of this game as he looked to be in fine form, going 4.1 innings, allowing just two hits and a run and striking out six.

Game 5 will in Cincinnati on Thursday, with the first pitch scheduled for 1:07 p.m. ET.
