Yastrzemski's walk-off HR seals comeback


SD 6

SF 7

Well, the Giants did something they had not done since June 4, 2018, that is hit 4 homers in a game at home. It was also the 5th game in 13 seasons during the post-Barry Bonds era. Alex Dickerson got the Giants on the board early with a triple to open the bottom of the 2nd and after a Brandon Crawford, 1 out single, Donavon Solano singled in Dickerson to make it a 1-0 game. Mike Yastrzemski tied the game with a leadoff home run in the bottom of the 3rd with a solo shot that bounced into McCovey Cove. Alex Dickerson also knocked a solo shot of his own to cut the Padres lead to 6-3 in the bottom of the 6th. Dickerson walked with 1 out in the bottom of the 8th and Brandon Crawford singled to bring up Donovan Solano. Solano drilled a line-drive home run to tie the game at 6-6 for his first home run of the year. Mike Yastrzemski came up in the bottom of the 9th and on a 2-2 count hit a 2nd home run to McCovey Cove to give the Giants a walk-off win. Yastrzemski and Brandon Crawford each had 3 hits and three other Giants players had at least 2 of the teams 12 on the night. Johnny Cueto had a short outing going 3 2/3 innings and allowed 4 runs off 4 hits with 3 walks and struck out 4 batters for a no-decision.

The San Diego Padres thought they may have taken game one of this series early but they were very mistaken. Trent Grisham walked with 2 outs in the top of the 3rd and Manny Machado blasted a ball to center field to give the Padres a 2-1 lead. Wil Myers was hit by a pitch to open the top of the 4th and stole 2nd base. He scored on an Edward Olivares single to put San Diego back out to a 1-run lead. After Fernando Tatis Jr walked later in the inning, Trent Grisham homered to push the game to 6-2-- Grisham, Machado, and Olivares all had 2 of the teams 9 hits this evening. Starter Chris Paddack tossed 5 innings and allowed just 2 runs off 6 gits with 6 strikeouts and walked no one. San Diego was 2-4 with 7 men left in scoring position.

Record 3-3
