SF 9  AZ 8

It was a “bullpen game” and it didn’t go quite they way they planned it but it turned out OK in the end. Mike Yastrzemski hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 8th to complete a remarkable comeback and give the Giants their 42nd win.

Opener Zack Littell faced six batters and didn’t record an out. Sammy Long had to finish the 1st. He promptly gave up three runs in the next frame and it was suddenly 7-0 Diamondbacks. The Giants bounced back for three in the bottom of the 2nd with Steven Duggar’s homer the big blow. Long persisted into the 5th yielding one more run and left with Arizona holding an 8-3 lead. Two more runs in the 6th made it 8-5 and the Giants had a pulse. A two-out walk to Curt Casali loaded the bases in the 8th and Yaz made the most of it. Brandon Belt’s triple started the 6th inning rally and his double got it going in the 8th. He scored three of the Giants nine runs. Shutdown relief work from Conner Menez (6th), Jarlin Garcia (7th), Jimmie Sherfy (8th), and Tyler Rogers (9th) made it all possible.

The Giants have certainly had their share of blown leads this season, with bullpen meltdowns and opponent walk-offs aplenty. It is nice to see the baseball winds blow the opposite way for a change!

Splash hits rescued the team tonight. Let’s hope Anthony DeSclafani takes charge tomorrow night (6:45 Pacific).

Go Giants!
