Starter Randy Maxwell look- ed to the bullpen for a new infield in the second inning as the Giants scored afl their runs with the aid of three Lakers' errors. But the locals got one back in the third on an inside the park home run by Tim Negrello and two in the eighth ning. Alert sloppy Calgary play led to the base running and winning run in the 10th.
