SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Kevin Gausman heard the boos when he stepped into the batter's box, realizing right away the fans had no idea the Giants were down to their last options with no position players left.

So the pinch-hitting pitcher stood in and delivered, lofting a full-count, bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the 11th inning that sent San Francisco past the Atlanta Braves 6-5 on Friday night to increase their NL West lead.

"Oh man, that was the coolest thing I've ever done in my entire career," Gausman said. "When it was 3-2 and everybody stood up, it was probably one of the coolest moments of my life. ... Just crazy."
