Reds 10, Giants 9
Francisco Cordero earned a good bit of his $46 million Saturday night. If he hadn't nailed down the save, the season on the brink may have been completely lost.
"That would have been Heartbreak Hotel right there," Dusty Baker said.
Cordero was expecting the night off until the game went from a lock to scary situation faster than you can say Todd Coffey.
"We haven't been playing good," Cordero said. "When it went from 10-5 to 10-9, I said we can't lose this."
Cordero got a groundout and then struck ot Ray Durham on three pitches to close it.
"Hopefully, this get us on roll," Paul Bako said.
We'll see. The Reds face Barry Zito in roughly 15 hours.
