The San Diego Padres beat the San Francisco Giants in 10 innings on Saturday after Santiago Casilla balked with runners on first and third to give San Diego a 7–6 win.
The Giants had taken a 6–5 lead on the Padres in the top of the 10th on a home run by Buster Posey, but San Diego quickly countered in the bottom of the inning. Alex Dickerson led off the bottom of the 10th with a single, moved to third on a single by catcher Derek Norris and scored on a hit by Adam Rosales to tie the game. Norris, who previously stole second, moved to third on Rosales’s single.
Facing Alexei Ramirez, Casilla then lost his balance while shifting his weight forward to deliver a pitch and took several steps before the ball tumbled out of his hand, giving Norris an automatic free pass home.
Kevin Quackenbush got the win for the Padres, while Casilla took the loss and was hit with a blown save. San Diego will go for the series sweep on Sunday.
