AT&T PARK — After Johnny Cueto dug a five-run hole in the first, the Giants bailed out the righty — just like they said they would.
“[They told me] just to keep this game at 5-0 and they would take care of the rest,” The Dominican pitcher said of his dugout conversation with Hunter Pence and Angel Pagan after the Giants topped the Dodgers 9-6 on Sunday.
The five-run comeback, which made the Giants winners of three of four, was the club’s largest since September 2014.
New $79-million man Brandon Belt helped fuel the rally, driving in three runs — including a two-run shot in the third. Pagan and Buster Posey also left the yard on getaway day, while Joe Panik struck the decisive blow, connecting on a two-run double in the sixth.
