Giants OF Justin Maxwell's pinch-hit single brings home win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Giants outfielder Justin Maxwell drove in the only run of Thursday's game against the Padres, singling in the 12th inning to give his team a 1-0 win.

The Giants had a man on second and one out in the 12th inning thanks to a fielding error, and after recording the second out of the inning, the Padres chose to intentionally walk Gregor Blanco to bring up the pinch hitter. Maxwell's single to center field delivered the only run of the game.

"I was just trying to hit the ball hard," Maxwell said after the game, per the Associated Press. "He made some tough pitches and I faced him a few years ago so I kind of knew what he threw. When (Brandon) Crawford got on base there, then they walked Blanco in front of me, so I was ready to hit."

He's now 2 for 7 in three games this season.
