SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (AP) – Brandon Hicks hit a three-run homer with two outs in the 9th inning to give the San Francisco Giants a 4-1 victory over the Indians on Sunday, completing a three-game sweep.
Buster Posey led off with a single and pinch runner Gregor Blanco went to second on Juan Perez’s sacrifice bunt. Pablo Sandoval struck out and Brandon Crawford, who drove in the Giants first run, was walked intentionally.
Hicks took a ball and then hit a towering fly into the left field bleachers, giving the sellout crowd of 41,530 something to celebrate.
Sergio Romo (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning to get the victory. Cory Allen (2-1), who allowed his first run in 12 games, took the loss.
