Joe Panik keeps Giants alive in NLDS with walk-off double in 13th inning

Joe Panik hit a walk-off double to rightfield, scoring Brandon Crawford, to give the Giants a walk-off 6–5 win over the Cubs in Game 3 of the NLDS.

San Francisco forces a Game 4, now trailing 2–1 in the best-of-five series. Game 4 will be played on Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. ET.

After Conor Gillaspie’s two-run triple gave the Giants a 4–3 lead in the eighth, and Brandon Crawford drove in another, San Francisco looked poised to win the game. But Kris Bryant hit a two-run shot to left in the top of the ninth off closer Sergio Romo to bring the game back even at 5–5.

Panik finished the night 3 for 4 with a pair of walks and an RBI. Rookie Ty Blach earned the victory with two scoreless innings in relief.
