Giants beat Cubs, 10-7

CHICAGO — With a record number of wild pitches in the middle of the game and a balk near the end, the San Francisco Giants sure got plenty of help from the Chicago Cubs.

They’ll take it.

Edwin Jackson and Michael Bowden tied a major league record by combining to throw five wild pitches in an inning, and the Giants got another big assist from a Cubs pitcher in a three-run 10th Sunday that led to their 10-7 victory over Chicago.

The Cubs matched the record for wild pitches by a team in an inning during a four-run sixth that put San Francisco ahead 5-4, but the Giants had to rally again.

Chicago led 7-6 before Hunter Pence’s solo homer on a 2-2 pitch off Shawn Camp (0-1) with two outs in the ninth.

One-out singles by Hector Sanchez and Brandon Crawford put runners at the corners in the 10th. With Buster Posey batting, Camp was called for a balk as he stepped off the rubber to try to throw to first, giving San Francisco an 8-7 lead. Posey followed with an RBI single and, one out later, Marco Scutaro added a run-scoring double.

Camp had no issue with the balk call, saying, “I got a little caught, and I just froze up.”
