Taken out of the starting lineup, slumping Aubrey Huff drew a bases-loaded walk as a pinch hitter to force home the go-ahead run, and the San Francisco Giants overcame Jonathan Sanchez's wild start and Brian Wilson's wild finish to edge the punchless Washington Nationals 2-1 Saturday.

 Sanchez walked or hit seven of Washington's first 10 batters but allowed just two hits and one unearned run in his five innings. Guillermo Mota (2-0) pitched a perfect sixth for the win, and four
 other relievers followed with hitless work.

 Still, Wilson made it interesting in the ninth. He walked two batters and hit Jayson Werth to load the bases with two outs, before striking out Adam LaRoche swinging for his eighth save.       

John Lannan (2-3) allowed two runs in 6 2-3 innings.
