Sandoval's Blast Electrifies Crowd

Sandoval and Cain Lead the Way

No Randy Johnson?  No problem. 

A near blown save by Brian Wilson?  No problem.

Nothing much seems to bother the Giants this season as they edged the visiting Florida Marlins 5-4 on Monday night.

Pablo Sandoval smacked his first career grand slam in the 5th inning and improved his chances to secure the final spot on the National League All-Star squad.  Matt Cain -- who has already has been named an All-Star -- pitched into the 7th inning and improved to 10-2 on the season.

Before the game, Randy Johnson was placed on the 15-day disabled list (strained shoulder).  Jonathan Sanchez will replace the 45 year-old Johnson in the rotation.

The Giants moved to within seven games of the first place Dodgers (who were idle on Monday) and continue to lead the Wild Card race.
