SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Pablo Sandoval hit a towering home run, the only blemish for Carlos Villanueva on Sunday, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 9-7.

Gregor Blanco drove in two runs for the Giants, who are losing eight players to the World Baseball Classic after this weekend.

Villanueva, a candidate for the Cubs starting rotation, gave up one run on four hits over three innings. He walked one and struck out two.

Yusmeiro Petit gave the Giants a nice outing in place of Tim Lincecum, who was scratched because of a blister on his right middle finger. Petit gave up a hit in three innings with one strikeout.

Steve Clevenger had two hits and drove in two runs and Dioner Navarro added two RBIs for the Cubs.
