A wild pitch ended the Washington Nationals’ run in the National League playoffs, providing the go-ahead run and a 3-2 victory to the San Francisco Giants in Game 4 of a National League Division Series on Oct. 7 at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

Starter Gio Gonzalez pitched four innings for the Nationals, but was roughed up in the bottom of the second inning when he surrendered two runs to stake the Giants to a 2-0 lead. San Francisco starter Ryan Vogelsong delivered a very solid performance, allowingjust two hits and one run, a Bryce Harper RBI double in the fifth inning that made it 2-1.

Giants second baseman Joe Panik scored on the bases-loaded wild pitch in the bottom of the seventh inning from Nationals reliever Aaron Barrett. The costly mistake came just after Harper hit a solo homerun off San Francisco reliever Hunter Strickland to tie the game at 2-2 earlier in the inning.

Giants relievers Sergio Romo and Santiago Casilla combined to shut down the Nationals’ offense, closing out the game with two flawless innings.

San Francisco will enjoy several days of rest before facing the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the best-of-seven National League Championship Series on Oct. 11.
