The Giants scored 20 runs in the series' first two games, including Pablo Sandoval's game-ending three-run homer on Tuesday night. San Francisco couldn't score against Martis until Rich Aurilia's sacrifice fly in the seventh.
The Nationals' bullpen struggled yet again, however. Sandoval added an RBI single in the eighth off Joe Beimel, who allowed Sandoval's homer the previous night. Nate Schierholtz then tripled and scored in the ninth, but Wells escaped trouble.
Notes: Giants OF Fred Lewis has a minor toe injury, but he drove home Schierholtz with a pinch-hit double in the ninth. ... Adam Dunn wasn't in Washington's starting lineup, but he popped out on one pitch as a pinch-hitter in the eighth.
