San Francisco, CA.--
People assuming that the Giants would run away with the National League West title don't understand how the team operates. And they certainly don't comprehend the nature of the Giants-Dodgers rivalry.

Saturday, the Giants needed six outs to seal a victory that would widen their division lead to 6 1/2 games over second-place Los Angeles. They had an effective Matt Cain on the mound and another sellout AT&T Park throng behind them.

But the afternoon's conclusion didn't follow the Giants' ideal script. The Dodgers scored in each of the final two innings to secure a 3-2 triumph that left them 4 1/2 games behind the Giants entering Sunday's series finale.
