Jeurys Familia came in for the 9th and got the save.
Additional Notes: Noah Syndergaard-en Gnome day. We lined up an hour before the gates opened, 2 hours before the game started to make sure we got the gnomes, which sold for upwards of $100 on eBay. Giants relief pitcher Derrick Law refused to throw a ball into the crowd during pregame warmups. Mom was 37 weeks pregnant with Lincoln. Game time was moved from 7pm to 4pm.
