PHOENIX -- Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run homer with one out in the top of the ninth inning and the San Francisco Giants rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Arizona starter Trevor Cahill left after allowing a leadoff single to Angel Pagan, the Giants' fourth hit against the right-hander. J.J. Putz (2-1) came on for Arizona and struck out Marco Scutaro, and quickly went ahead 0-1 on Sandoval.
But Sandoval drove Putz's next pitch, a hanging split-finger fastball, deep into the right-field stands to give Giants the lead and hand the struggling Diamondbacks closer his fourth blown save in nine chances.
It was San Francisco's second straight come-from-behind victory, rallying for a 6-4 win in the series opener Monday.
Sandy Rosario (1-0) recorded the last out of the eighth inning for his first career win, and Sergio Romo pitched the ninth for his 10th save.

PHOENIX The Diamondbacks spent the offseason fortifying their bullpen, which has made its early struggles even more mystifying.
The D-backs suffered their major league-high 10th failed save conversion when closer J.J. Putz gave up a two-run home run to Pablo Sandoval for a 2-1 San Francisco victory at Chase Field on Tuesday.

While the Giants turn to Madison Bumgarner as he tries to continue his strong start, they also hope star third baseman Pablo Sandoval has not aggravated an injury that nagged him during spring training.
With Sandoval's status uncertain, Bumgarner will try to help the visiting Giants build on their first victory in a week when he takes the mound Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks...
While the San Francisco Giants were able to manage a 6-4 win in Arizona against the Diamondbacks Monday night, it was reliever Jean Machi who earned his first win of 2013, instead of the Giant’s starter and resident staff ace Matt Cain.
Once again Cain wasn’t a factor in
This is best posterized picture I’ve been able to capture. We caught Sandoval salivating over his tater tot.
The Arizona Diamondbacks provide plenty of fodder for rank relief between Heath Bell and JJ Putz. This time it was our man JJ stepping up to the plate. Like our other rank relief feature tonight, the Diamondbacks took a 1-0 lead into the 9th inning. Putz hasn’t been...
Just to be clear, I’m picking more on the Warriors’ history rather than this Warriors team. They don’t need any help against Denver. Against the Spurs, though…well, they might.
As far as the Giants go, however, they need help no matter who they’re playing. They just got swept by San Diego. In San Diego, which is as close to a home away from home as the Giants get...
