Sandoval's RBI in 11th gives Giants 2-1 win over Cubs
(SAN FRANCISCO) – Pablo Sandoval left Boston last season and returned to the San Francisco Giants realizing he no longer held Bay Area star status. He certainly is lately, after singling home the winning run with one out in the bottom of the 11th inning, sending the Giants to a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night. That came a day after driving in five runs for the Giants. Brandon Crawford was intentionally walked by Pedro Strop to load the bases and bring up Sandoval, who hit a sharp single to left against a five-man infield. Andrew McCutchen and Brandon Belt started the rally with consecutive one out singles off Steve Cishek (2-1), who entered with one out in the 10th and immediately gave up Hunter Pence's triple before working out of trouble. Ty Blach (6-5) pitched a 1-2-3 11th for the win. The Giants came through an inning after missing a big chance with Pence on third. Pinch-hitter Chase D'Arnaud (dar-NO) struck out with the Cubs playing with five infielders, making him 0 for 16 in his last nine games. Then Steven Duggar also struck out. Ben Zobrist hit a two out double in the ninth off Will Smith, but David Bote then grounded out. Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks struck out eight and pitched into the ninth before giving way to Randy Rosario. Hendricks is winless in four starts since beating the Cardinals on June 16.
