Sandoval's HR lifts Giants past Nationals 4-2

Tools

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the 10th inning after Gregor Blanco's tying triple in the ninth, and the San Francisco Giants rallied past the Washington Nationals 4-2 on Tuesday night.

Sandoval flipped his bat and shifted into a slow trot as soon as he sent the ball off Yunesky Maya (0-1) over the right-center field wall for his eighth homer this season. It was Sandoval's second career game-ending hit — both home runs against the Nationals — and San Francisco's sixth walk-off win this season.

Blanco had three hits, including his RBI triple off closer Rafael Soriano with two outs in the ninth. The Giants' comeback upstaged a superb outing by Stephen Strasburg, who outdueled Matt Cain in seven innings in a matchup of NL aces.

Jeremy Affelft (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win.
