SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Even after his Reds fell behind early for a change, the way Cincinnati had been slugging it out against the San Francisco Giants left manager Dusty Baker confident his club would still pull off a win.
Too many missed chances did in Cincinnati this time in a 5-3 loss to the Giants, and the Reds settled for a split of their traditional doubleheader Tuesday night in which they wore their home uniforms and batted last for the nightcap at AT&T Park.
"Man, I just knew we were going to win that game," Baker said. "They got first blood tonight. That's kind of weird. Usually we're jumping them in the first inning. Tonight they were the visiting team and they jumped us in that first inning."
Giants manager Bruce Bochy joined Baker in the 1,500 managerial wins club.
It took a few more tries than Bochy would have liked after the Reds pounded his team in the first two games.
Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run double to help Bochy reach the milestone victory.
