SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Just in the nick of time, the San Francisco Giants solved the Kid.

David Bell hit a tiebreaking single off rookie sensation Francisco Rodriguez in the eighth inning and the Giants rallied past the Anaheim Angels 4-3 last night, tying the World Series at two games each.

Somehow, the Giants slowed down Anaheim’s persistent hitters. And then, the biggest surprise of all: they broke through against Mr. Unhittable and posted San Francisco’s first Series win at home since 1962.

Rodriguez had blown away all 12 San Francisco hitters he had faced in the Series until J.T. Snow singled to start the eighth.
