Sandoval and Deliver

pablo_sandoval_4_30_2013Pitching from both the Giants and Diamondbacks dominated this game through the first seven and a half innings.  Then the Diamondbacks struck first with a Josh Wilson home run in the bottom of the eighth inning off of Giants reliever Santiago Casilla.  Trevor Cahill pitched a strong 8 innings and after allowing a single to Angel Pagan in the top of the ninth inning he was replaced by closer, J.J. Putz to try to secure the win.  After Marco Scutaro struck out it was Pablo Sandoval’s turn to try to tie the game with Angel Pagan now on second.  A single would do the trick but Sandoval decided a home run was better and took Putz over the wall in right center field for a 2-1 lead.  Sergio Romo closed out the bottom of the ninth for his 10th save and the Giants moved to 15-12 on the season.
