Recap


Giants 2, Diamondbacks 1:
Pablo Sandoval blasted a two-run homer in the ninth off J.J. Putz and visiting San Francisco rallied to win its second straight game against Arizona.

Trevor Cahill needed just 88 pitches to get through eight shutout innings, but was pulled after Angel Pagan led off the ninth with a single. Putz (2-1) replaced Cahill and struck out Marco Scutaro before Sandoval crushed an 0-1 offering into the right field bleachers.

Sandy Rosario (1-0) retired one batter in the eighth for his first major-league victory and Sergio Romo worked a perfect ninth for his 10th save.

Josh Wilson broke a scoreless tie with a leadoff homer in the eighth inning off Santiago Casilla, spoiling an impressive outing by Giants starter Madison Bumgarner. The homer was Wilson’s 10th in 956 career at-bats and first since June 6, 2011.

Bumgarner lowered his ERA to 1.55 and turned in his fifth quality start, allowing three hits with no walks and two strikeouts in seven innings. Cahill was even better, giving up one run on four hits and becoming the first Arizona starter to work into the ninth inning this season.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Sandoval, who left Monday’s game in the sixth inning with right elbow discomfort, has 11 hits in his last 17 at-bats. … The Giants have had 18 of their 27 games decided by two runs or fewer. … The Diamondbacks’ bullpen has blown nine saves and allowed 11 home runs, matching the amount allowed by Arizona’s starting pitchers.
