Facing off against cross-Bay rival Oakland, San Francisco was in danger of blowing a 5-1 lead when Brian Wilson entered the game in the bottom of the eighth. The score had been sliced to 5-4 earlier in the inning, and he inherited a bases loaded jam with only one out. He remained unfazed, striking out Adam Rosales and inducing a ground out from Rajai Davis to preserve the Giants' lead. After tossing a scoreless ninth, San Francisco escaped with a narrow win. Wilson was clutch for the Giants all season, notching an MLB-leading 48 saves.
