SAN FRANCISCO — Brandon Crawford tied the game with a two-out single in the bottom of the ninth inning, though the San Francisco Giants could do no more damage despite loading the bases with no outs.

They paid for the lack of production.

Gordon Beckham hit an RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning and the Chicago White Sox beat the Giants, 3-2, on Tuesday night after blowing a two-run lead in the ninth.

Jake Petricka started the ninth for the White Sox after Chris Sale sailed through eight shutout innings. Pablo Sandoval, Mike Morse and pinch-hitter Travis Ishikawa each singled to load the bases for Joe Panik.

Panik hit a ball up the middle that Beckham somehow gloved and started a double play, with Sandoval scoring.

“If the ball gets by we’re talking a different game,” said Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong. “Gordon made a great play and saved the game for them right there.”

Beckham hit an 0-1 pitch from San Francisco reliever Santiago Casilla (1-2) past Crawford into left field. Moises Sierra, who entered the game as a late defensive replacement, scored easily.

Adam Dunn hit a two-run home run off Vogelsong in the first.

“I wasn’t even trying to throw a strike,” Vogelsong said. “My two-seamer was running all over the place in the bullpen but for some reason that one stayed on the plate. He’s a big, strong man and he put a good swing on it.”

Zach Putnam (4-2) pitched 1 1/3 innings for the win.

Sale struck out 12 and walked two over eight solid innings in his best start of the season. It’s the 16th time in 77 career starts that Sale has fanned 10 or more — second-most in franchise history — and a team-record ninth time with 12 or more.

Vogelsong struck out five and walked two in six innings. He allowed only one hit following Dunn’s home run — a leadoff triple by Conor Gillaspie in the second — then retired the next seven.

It wasn’t enough to keep San Francisco from falling a season-high six games behind the Dodgers in the NL West. The Giants led the division by 9 1/2 games on June 8 but have gone just 20-36 since.

Notes: Giants’ outfielder Hunter Pence tripled with one out in the first and then was thrown out trying to score on Buster Posey’s grounder to Alexei Ramirez, who was playing back. “Hunter is as good a base runner as we have,” said Giants’ manager Bruce Bochy. “He got a late jump and the shortstop read it. You hope it doesn’t play a factor but it ends up being a one-run loss for us.” Pence thought he could play it safe before taking off. “That’s a pretty good play by their shortstop, and gutsy,” Pence said. … Right-hander Matt Cain underwent season-ending surgery to remove bone chips in his pitching elbow. Recovery is expected to take three months of rehabilitation. … San Francisco catcher Hector Sanchez (concussion) has resumed his rehab with Triple-A Fresno.
