    SAN FRANCISCO — Joe Panik doubled off the wall in right-center field to drive in Brandon Crawford with the winning run in the 13th inning, as the San Francisco Giants staved off elimination yet again by outlasting the Chicago Cubs, 6-5, at the AT&T Park on Tuesday.

    San Francisco won its 10th straight game when facing postseason elimination and also made it 2-1 in their NLDS against the Chicago Cubs, avoiding a sweep.

    Panik came through against Mike Montgomery, who was pitching his fifth inning of relief.

    "There's a sense of calmness," Panik said. "It's like we've been there before."

    The tough-to-eliminate Giants forced Tuesday night's Game 4 back at their raucous, sold-out ballpark, postponing a potential Cubs clinch party. Chicago will send John Lackey to the mound opposite lefty Matt Moore.

    Panik's big hit ended a 5-hour, 4-minute game that was only 29 minutes shy of the total time taken to play the first two series games combined last week at Wrigley Field.
