San Francisco Giants v Los Angeles Dodgers

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Pinch-hitter Hector Sanchez had a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the 10th inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series.

Brandon Belt added an RBI single for the Giants, who tied the score at 1 when Brandon Hicks homered off Josh Beckett in the seventh.

J.P. Howell (1-3) issued a one-out walk in the 11th to Angel Pagan, who advanced on a wild pitch by Jamey Wright before the right-hander walked Hunter Pence and Buster Posey. Sanchez, who came in 1 for 10 as a pinch-hitter with seven strikeouts, flied out to the warning track in right field to drive in Pagan.

Belt followed with a run-scoring single to make it 3-1.
