Somewhere in this great country of ours, a young lad, new to baseball, silently thought, "Well, this game is over!" after Buster Posey's grand slam.
It is most certainly not over. The Reds charged back with two runs in the bottom of the fifth, and they tacked on another in the sixth on Ryan Ludwick's solo home run. But they left runners on base when Ryan Hanigan took a (questionable) called-third strike, and Jay Bruce was thrown out on a strike-'em-out-throw-'em-out double play.
Ludwick had another chance in the bottom of the seventh, though. Brandon Phillips hit a one-out single, and with two outs, Joey Votto chopped an infield hit up the middle to bring up Ludwick. The Giants stuck with left-hander Jeremy Affeldt against Ludwick.
In the eight pitch of the at-bat, including a couple of hittable pitches up in the zone, Ludwick grounded back to Affeldt to end the inning.
In other news, I can't feel my fingers, so any typos up there aren't my fault.
