MLB: San Francisco 7, Chicago Cubs 5

Sept. 2, 2012 at 5:55 PM   |   Comments

CHICAGO, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Angel Pagan and Marco Scutaro each delivered run-scoring hits in the ninth inning Sunday, rallying San Francisco to a 7-5 win over the Chicago Cubs.

The Giants had erased a 5-3 Cubs lead in the sixth when Brandon Belt socked an RBI triple and then scored on a wild pitch by Chicago's Manny Corpas.

Then, facing Carlos Marmol (2-3) in the ninth, Xavier Nady drew a lead-off walk, with Gregor Blanco coming in to pinch-run. Blanco stole second as Belt struck out and Brandon Crawford drew another base-on-balls, putting two runners aboard.

That brought up Pagan, who lined a solid hit to center field as Blanco slid home with the go-ahead run.

Scutaro capped with the rally with another hit to score Crawford and the National League West-leading Giants claimed the rubber match of a three-game series.

Santiago Casilla (6-5) earned the win and Javier Lopez recorded the final two outs for his sixth save for San Francisco.

Alfonso Soriano belted a three-run homer for the Cubs.
