The San Francisco Giants won their eighth straight game in dramatic fashion.

San Francisco extended its winning streak to eight games with a 7-4 home victory over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday at Oracle Park in Oracle, Calif.

They also moved to within one game of the third-place Los Angeles Dodgers (39-33), who didn’t play that day.토토사이트

It was a dramatic win. San Francisco started Ryan Walker, who gave up one run on three hits (one home run) in one and two-thirds innings. The bullpen was activated in the second inning, and by the top of the fifth, the Giants were down 0-4. Trailing 0-3 in the top of the fifth, I had a 9.5% chance of winning after giving up a home run to leadoff hitter Juan Soto. Entering the bottom of the ninth, San Francisco had only an 8.7% chance of winning. But in the top of the ninth, leadoff hitter Blake Seibold drew a walk and Mike Yastrzemski followed with a single to put runners on second and third. Luis Matos followed with a sacrifice fly to center field to make it 3-4.

After a J.D. Davis walk, San Francisco tied the game at 4-4 on Patrick Bailey’s sacrifice fly to left field on a 1-3 count. After two walks loaded the bases with nobody out and Jacoby Pederson struck out swinging to end the game, the Giants needed Yastrzemski to finish the job in the bottom of the 10th. With runners on first and second, he pulled a five-pitch four-seam fastball from left-handed reliever Laker over the right field fence. It was a big hit that you knew was a home run the moment it was hit. The distance was measured at 388 feet (118.2 meters).

San Francisco’s fourth pitcher of the day, Keaton Wynn, pitched five innings of three-hit ball and one run. At the plate, Yastrzemski, who hit the game-winning home run, went 3-for-5 with two doubles and four RBIs. For San Diego, starter Michael Wacka gave up two runs on four hits (two homers) in six innings. Ha-Sung Kim, batting eighth, went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs, but it wasn’t enough to win the game.
