Sandoval's Walkoff Homer Lifts Giants Over Cubs in 13

Another game, another walk-off win.

The Giants kept the good times rolling Tuesday night after Pablo Sandoval delivered a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 13th inning to beat the Cubs 5-4 at Oracle Park.

On the first pitch of the at-bat, Sandoval lined a solo shot to the opposite field off Cubs reliever Brad Brach. It was a nice way for the Kung Fu Panda to redeem himself, after he had gone hitless in five at-bats earlier in the night.

Sandoval's clutch homer makes it 17 wins for the Giants in their last 20 games, and gives them four extra-inning walk-off wins in a six-game span. They're also now a season-best two games above .500, and just two games out of a playoff spot.

Rookie Sam Coonrod got the win for San Francisco, after he pitched a scoreless inning against the heart of Chicago's order in the top of the 13th.
