SAN FRANCISCO -- Though the pregame attention involving the Giants focused on their lineup changes, it was the constants in their game that sustained them Tuesday.
 
Edgar Renteria, the cool veteran, disrupted Cole Hamels' dominance. Cody Ross, the Giants' best postseason hitter, came through again. And Matt Cain, the Giants' most consistent starter, remained steady.
 
The result was a 3-0 victory for the Giants over the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, which thrilled the heavily partisan crowd at jam-packed AT&T Park. San Francisco edged ahead in the series, 2-1, with another pair of games set to be played by the Bay on Wednesday and Thursday.
