PHOENIX, April 16 (UPI) -- Pablo Sandoval hit a three-run homer to back Matt Cain's six innings of one-run ball Friday in the San Francisco Giants' 5-2 victory over Arizona.

Sandoval's first-inning blast scored Freddy Sanchez and Buster Posey ahead of him and gave the Giants a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Cain (2-0) handled the Diamondbacks on four hits, yielding only one run and a pair of walks with three strikeouts as the Giants began a three-game series in Phoenix with a victory.

Miguel Tejada added two hits and an RBI and Brian Wilson collected his third save despite allowing a run-scoring single to Willie Bloomquist in the ninth.

Diamondbacks starter Daniel Hudson (0-3) was tagged for five runs (four earned) on six hits over six innings.
