MLB: Giants Tie World Series 2-2 - 2002-10-23


The San Francisco Giants captured the fourth game of the Major League Baseball World Series Wednesday night, in a come-from-behind win - beating the Anaheim Angels, 4-3, and evening the best-of-seven series to two games, apiece.

The Giants pitching staff managed to calm the Angels offense, holding the American League squad to three runs on ten hits with one error. The Giants scored four runs on 12 hits with one error.

Unlike earlier games, neither team had a home run.

In the first inning and again in the third, Giants catcher Benito Santiago hit into double plays with bases loaded, to end the innings.

San Francisco home-run hitter Barry Bonds was walked intentionally three times, giving him eight intentional walks in the World Series, so far. Eleven is the record.

The Giants tied the game in the fifth inning with a hit by Benito Santiago. In the bottom of the eighth, the Gants took the lead, 4-3, and held on in the ninth to win.
