Randal Grichuk ties Game 3 of NLCS with solo shot


Randal Grichuk lost track of a ball at the right field wall in the first inning, contributing to the Giants’ big four-run opening frame, but he just redeemed himself with a game-tying solo shot high and deep down the left field line in the top of the seventh. It was the final pitch of the game for Giants starter Tim Hudson.

Cards starter John Lackey is also out after settling in nicely following that rough bottom-of-the-first inning.

This NLCS Game 3 will be decided by the bullpens. We’re 4-4 heading to the bottom of the seventh.
