Giants 2, D'backs 1

PHOENIX — Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run homer with one out in the ninth inning as the Giants rallied. Diamondbacks starter Trevor Cahill left after allowing a leadoff single to Angel Pagan, San Francisco's fourth hit against the right-hander. J.J. Putz came on and struck out Marco Scutaro then went ahead 0-and-1 on Sandoval. But Sandoval drove Putz's next pitch, a hanging split-finger fastball, deep into the rightfield stands to give Giants the lead and hand the closer his fourth blown save in nine chances.
