Giants defeat Cincinnati

SAN FRANCISCO -- Pedro Feliz would remain in San Francisco if it were up to manager Bruce Bochy. The Giants third baseman would like to stick around, too.

Feliz hit a tying homer during a five-run sixth inning, rallying the Giants to a 5-4 victory over Aaron Harang and the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.

"I just keep playing and wait and see what happens," Feliz said of his looming free agency. "I'd be happy to be back. I'm just going to wait and see what happens."

Daniel Ortmeier and Rich Aurilia each had three hits to help the Giants win consecutive games for the first time since Sept. 5-7.

Eliezer Alfonzo singled home the go-ahead run in the sixth.

"Any manager is going to like Pedro," Bochy said. "He's stable and consistent with his play and attitude. He shows up every day. When you watch him on a daily basis you get more of an appreciation for what he does on the field. He would play anywhere if you got into a bind -- shortstop, first base, the outfield."

Randy Messenger (2-4) got one out to earn the win. Scott Atchison and Tyler Walker each worked a scoreless inning before Brian Wilson pitched the ninth for his sixth save in six chances.
