Final Score: San Francisco 4, Cleveland 1
San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Brandon Hicks smacked a three-run
homer in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday to give the San Francisco
Giants a 4-1 win over the Cleveland Indians and a sweep of the three-game set.
Brandon Crawford had an RBI double and Pablo Sandoval added two hits for the
Giants, who earned their first sweep of the season.
San Francisco starter Ryan Vogelsong hurled seven scoreless innings, fanning a
season-high six while giving up just two hits and two walks. Sergio Romo (2-0)
picked up the win after setting down the side in order in the top of the
Yan Gomes homered for the Indians, who saw starter Danny Salazar allow one
run on five hits over seven innings while striking out eight and walking
one. Cody Allen (2-1) threw 1 1/3 innings and suffered the loss. Michael Bourn
picked up the only other hits for the Indians with two singles.
"We have to start making better adjustments during the game and make it harder
for guys to get us out," said Cleveland manager Terry Francona.
With the game knotted at one in the ninth, Buster Posey hit a leadoff single
to center. Gregor Blanco dropped down a sacrifice bunt and Crawford was
intentionally walked after Sandoval struck out. Hicks followed with a homer to
"It's just an awesome feeling whenever you're able to help the team win in
that kind of way," Hicks said.
Earlier, the Giants got on the board in the fourth on back-to-back doubles
with two outs. Sandoval hit a double to left field before Crawford ripped a
double down the right-field line just out of the reach of first baseman Nick
Swisher to plate Sandoval.
