SAN FRANCISCO — Brandon Belt is giving himself credit for a home run in the first inning, even though the wind held up his shot for a sacrifice fly. He had a good day regardless.
Belt was a homer short of the cycle and drove in five runs, Hunter Pence had two RBIs on three hits and the San Francisco Giants completed a three-game sweep by beating the San Diego Padres 13-9 on Wednesday.

Belt likes to kid around before a lot of games that “it’s a good day for a cycle.”
