San Francisco – Mauricio Dubon broke the seventh-inning tie with a two-out, pinch-hit single, Alex Wood won for the fourth time five times and the San Francisco Giants beat the Texas Rangers 3–1 on Monday night.
Brandon Belt doubled his eighth home run and Mike Yortzemski for San Francisco. The Giants (21-14) are tied with undrafted St. Louis for the best record in the National League.
Dubon’s go-ahead hit was one of three consecutive pinch-hitters used by San Francisco manager Gabe Kapler.
“For me it was just to go there and my point of view. Dubon said,” Do what I do best. “” I don’t care what (the pitcher) throws. ” I don’t care what he does. As long as I have a point of view, I’m good to go. “
Wood (4-0) had seven strikes and allowed one run in seven innings, reducing his ERA to 1.80. Lefty got a double draw in the fifth and seventh innings and dismissed Adolis Garcia and Joey Gallo for two and six.
Tyler Rogers retired three batters. Jake McGee allowed two hits in the ninth, but got Charlie Kulberson to third to end it.
Khris Davis gave two hit films for the Rangers.
The Giants took over when Kapler moved to his bench in the seventh.
Pinch-hitter Austin Slater and Darin Roof defeated Riley King John (4-2) respectively. Dubon, to Wood, with a single to left, and Slater slid well into the house ahead of Davis’ throw. Culberson’s throwing error on Yosterzski’s grounder allowed Roof to score.
“It’s tough when you’re going to roll out three pinch hitters simultaneously,” Kapler said. If you do not score runs, you are almost out of the players. Dubon’s at-bat was excellent, that’s what’s going to be out. But Slater’s look was just as good and Roof’s awesome. “
Rangers manager Chris Woodward knew that Kapler sat on the right-hand highway in the dugout, but brought Lefty King to the pitch.
“The first two batsmen, punch out, punch out,” Woodward said. “Falling behind Rough was the biggest thing of the innings. Dubon’s at-bat was a good baby bat. (King) did not make a pitch there in the end. “
Belt hit the opposite-field home run to left-center starter Kyle Gibson in the fourth.
The Rangers scored their only run when Davis took the lead for the fifth time and scored on Kulberson’s RBI single.
Gibson allowed one run and four hits with six strikes over six innings. It was Gibson’s seventh consecutive quality, breaking the Rangers franchise record set by Yu Darvish in 2012.
Belt’s home run was the 15th by the Giants in May, tying the Rangers for most of the season. … Triple by Davis was his first since July 11, 2018, while living with Oakland. … Buster Posey went 3 for 0, ending his eight-game streak. … San Francisco is 13-4 at home.
Rangers catcher Jack Krueger claimed that Los Angeles was exempted from the Angels on Sunday, having been given the option of Triple-A Round Rock. He is on the club’s taxi squad for the series against the Giants.
Giants: On Thursday, according to Kapal, veterans will reach the 85% threshold for their vaccinations. He has asked everyone to wear masks at dugouts, club houses and other shared spaces, respecting distance with those not vaccinated. “We’re going to be almost completely vaccinated as a group,” Kapler said.
Rangers RHP Jordan Liles (1-2. 7.09 ERA) took the mound on Tuesday and allowed a home run to a franchise-record 12 dating back to last season in a row. RHP Logan Webb (1-3, 5.34 for the Giants) has allowed pitches and nine earned runs in his final 9/2 innings.
