Sanchez (7-6) was winless in 11 starts after starting the year on a 6-1 tear. On Tuesday, he got back into the win column with a solid eight-inning showing.
Sanchez had to survive Leo Nunez's shaky ninth to celebrate his first win since June 10. Nunez, who blew a ninth-inning lead in the opener of this three-game series on Monday, surrendered a two-run homer to pinch-hitter Jason Giambi to make it a one-run game.
