Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Pablo Sandoval and Angel Pagan each drove in a pair of runs to help the San Francisco Giants to a 7-6 come-from-behind decision over the Chicago Cubs in the opener of a four-game series from Wrigley Field.

Nick Noonan went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in his first major league start for San Francisco, which rallied from a 5-0 deficit after three innings to register a fourth straight victory.

Ryan Vogelsong (1-1) rebounded from a shaky showing early on to notch his first win of 2013, while Sergio Romo earned his MLB-leading sixth save by protecting the Giants' one-run lead in the ninth.

Vogelsong surrendered five runs -- four earned -- on eight hits in six innings of work, but struck out five batters and held the Cubs scoreless over his final three frames.

Cubs starter Scott Feldman (0-2) took the loss after permitting six runs -- though just two were earned due to an error by Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro that opened the floodgates in a four-run top of the fourth -- in 4 1/3 innings.

Anthony Rizzo had a two-run homer and Brent Lillibridge added a two-RBI single in the loss, Chicago's fifth in six games, while ex-Giant Nate Schierholtz finished 3-for-4 with a pair of runs scored against his former team.
