3/2 Giants 9, Cubs 7

Carlos Villanueva gave up one run on four hits over three innings, and that was a solo home run by Pablo Sandoval, in the Cubs’ 9-7 loss to the Giants on Saturday. Brett Jackson doubled and scored on Matt Szczur’s sacrifice fly in the eighth. Steve Clevenger, starting at first base, hit two RBI singles. Logan Watkins added a RBI double and Jackson had a sacrifice fly in the ninth. Brian Bogusevic also had two hits.

“I’m satisfied, even with the home run allowed,” Villanueva said. “It’s the best I’ve felt and I had better rhythm that [third] inning. Sometimes you have to tip your cap [to Sandoval]. I’d rather tip now in spring than in the regular season. It’s a better day but still have work to do.”

Sandoval hit a pitch that was ankle high.

“It was exactly where I wanted to throw it,” Villanueva said, shaking his head.

* On Sunday, the Cubs will play split-squad games, sending half the team to Tempe to face the Angels, and the other half will play the Brewers at HoHoKam.
