The Giants are matching the $10,000 reward for information that will help catch the people who savagely beat Bryan Stow as he left the Dodger stadium last week.

Over the weekend, Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich offered the $10,000 reward money and said he wants more security and less booze at the ballpark.

Meanwhile, Stow, 42, remains in critical condition with a medically induced coma. His friends and family have started a Facebook page to raise money to pay his medical bills.

The team has also offered to assist with fundraising, including a barbecue on Wednesday at American Medical Response, where Stow works as a paramedic.

Stow was walking to his car after the opener between the Giants and the Dodgers on Thursday in Los Angeles when some people wearing Dodgers clothes started following him. They heckled him and then pushed him to the ground and beat him, police said.

Los Angeles Police have released sketches of suspects who are still on the loose. They are reviewing surveillance cameras, but detectives have said the footage is rather useless.

Dodgers Owner Frank McCourt said the beating was an isolated event and insisted that security that night was "appropriate." Giants have said they plan to increase security for next week's game when the Dodgers are here.
