Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Pablo Sandoval and Hector Sanchez hit RBI singles in the 10th inning, and the San Francisco Giants recovered to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-4 Sunday after closer Sergio Romo gave up a tying homer to Hanley Ramirez.
Brandon Hicks hit a two-run shot off Clayton Kershaw, and Buster Posey had an RBI single for the NL West leaders, who beat the defending division champions for the seventh time in 10 meetings this season.
The Giants finished their road trip 7-3 and played errorless ball over the last five games.
Romo (3-0) came on in the ninth to try and protect a 4-2 lead for Tim Hudson. The right-hander struck out Yasiel Puig after a one-out double by Dee Gordon, but Ramirez lined his fifth homer to left field. The blown save was Romo’s first this season in 13 chances.
Angel Pagan drew a leadoff walk in the 10th from Kenley Jansen (0-2) before Hunter Pence singled.
Jean Machi got three outs for his first major league save.
REDS 4, ROCKIES 1
CINCINNATI (AP) - Aroldis Chapman made his first major league appearance since being hit above the eye by a line drive during spring training, striking out the side in the ninth inning with his 100 mph fastball to close out Cincinnati’s victory over Colorado.
Todd Frazier hit his second 400-foot home run in three days to back Homer Bailey (3-2) as the Reds won the rubber match of the three-game series.
Chapman was greeted by a standing ovation from the crowd of 33,143. He reached 100 mph with his first pitch and topped out at 102 mph in earning the save. Chapman had been out since a frightening injury March 19.
Skip Schumaker drove in two runs and the Reds capitalized on two throwing errors to send the Rockies to their third loss in four games. Charlie Blackmon hit his ninth homer for Colorado.
Bailey allowed four hits in 7 1-3 innings.
Juan Nicasio (4-2) gave up four runs - two earned - in six innings.
