The next six batters reached Antworten

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Chris Shaw is still looking for his first big league hit. However , he already has a game-deciding RBI to savor in his 24-hour-old MLB career.Shaw and fellow Giants debutante Aramis Garcia drove in the game’s first two runs, and rookie left-hander Andrew Suarez outdueled Zack Wheeler as San Francisco beat the New York Mets 7-0 on Friday night.Shaw, an outfielder called up earlier in the day to replace the traded Andrew McCutchen, lofted a sacrifice fly to center in the seventh inning to break a scoreless tie. Shaw had struck out on six pitches in his previous two at-bats.“I’ll take that stat line any night if it gives us the lead in the seventh,” Shaw said. “To be able at that point in the game to put us up 1-0 was incredible.”Garcia, a catcher also making his first major league appearance, homered leading off the eighth for the Giants’ second run and then capped the Giants’ six-run inning with an RBI single. Like Shaw, he had struck out in his first two big league at-bats.Garcia, who watched his family crying on the outfield scoreboard after circling the bases on his homer, said he traded “a couple of bats, some batting gloves and some signed baseballs” to the fan who caught the ball in the left-field stands.“What I like about what happened is they struck out the first two times up and then they found a way to get it done,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “It can be a shot in the arm for you when a couple of young kids come up and contribute.”After giving up a first-inning double to Jeff McNeil, Suarez (6-9) retired 17 straight batters until hitting McNeil with a pitch leading off the seventh. He then gave up a bloop single to Austin Jackson, but worked out of the jam by getting Jay Bruce to hit into an inning-ending double play.Suarez allowed two hits in seven innings, striking out five out and walking none Youth Leonard Fournette Jersey , despite dealing with a headache starting in the first inning. Tony Watson worked the eighth and Ty Blach pitched the ninth to complete the three-hitter.Wheeler (9-7) was almost as good, striking out nine and walking none while allowing four hits and one run over seven innings. It was his first loss since June 22 — he had won seven straight decisions. He allowed five earned runs in six August starts.“I think it’s just consistency, mechanically and trusting my stuff. My fastball command has been better,” he said. “Everything seems to be working really well right now. I just have trust in my pitches.”Garcia’s homer came off Robert Gsellman. Brandon Belt added a two-run triple later in the inning off Daniel Zamora, and Austin Slater, Gorkys Hernandez and Garcia followed with RBI singles off Drew Smith.The debuts of Shaw and Garcia marked the first time two position players had made their first big league appearance in the same game for the Giants since first baseman Will Clark and second baseman Robby Thompson debuted on April 8, 1986, at Houston.TRAINER’S ROOMMets: 3B David Wright, who has not played since May 2016 while having three surgeries for neck, back and shoulder injuries, rejoined the club to continue his rehabilitation. He is still on the disabled list but said he hopes to be activated sometime in September.Giants: C Buster Posey, who had right hip surgery on Monday, was on crutches when he visited the Giants’ clubhouse before the game. His recovery time is expected to be six to eight months.NO “SURRENDER”Giants executive VP of baseball operations Brian Sabean said after trading McCutchen to the New York Yankees that “we don’t like to surrender,” but acknowledged a 3-1 home loss to the NL West-leading Diamondbacks on Wednesday was a turning point. The Giants began Friday night in fourth place in the division, 7 1/2 games behind Arizona. “Simply put , we were hoping to sweep Arizona and we didn’t, then the odds became taller,” he said. “It was the prudent thing to do. Three teams ahead of us and we’re running out of games.”HIGH PICKWheeler was the sixth overall selection by the Giants in the 2009 MLB draft, and was traded as a minor leaguer to the Mets in 2011 for outfielder Carlos Beltran. He has now allowed two runs or fewer in his last eight starts, posting a 1.19 ERA during that span.VEGAS BOUNDThe Giants said infielder Abiatal Avelino, obtained Friday from the Yankees as part of the trade for McCutchen, was assigned to their Triple-A club in Sacramento and would join the River Cats for a season-ending weekend series at Las Vegas.STREAK ENDSThe Mets, who were shut out for the 11th time this season, had won their five previous games in San Francisco.UP NEXTLHP Steven Matz (5-11, 4.36 ERA), who tied his season high by going seven innings in his previous outing, takes the mound for the Mets in the second game of the series. LHP Derek Holland (7-8, 3.65) starts for the Giants, who have won five of his last six starts, although he’s only gotten credit for victories in two of those games. CHICAGO (AP) — The crowd of 39 Youth Myles Jack Jersey ,275 roared when Jason Heyward caught Francisco Pena’s fly ball for the final out on a wet, cool afternoon at Wrigley Field.Now, everything gets real crazy.Anthony Rizzo had four hits and scored three times, and the Chicago Cubs set up a tiebreaker game for the NL Central title by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 10-5 on Sunday.“We know what’s at stake. Obviously we needed to win today, by all means,” Rizzo said, “and tomorrow is the same thing.”Shortly after Milwaukee completed an 11-0 victory over Detroit, Jorge De La Rosa worked a hitless ninth inning to move the Cubs back into a tie with the Brewers at 95-67. Yairo Munoz walked with two out, but Pena’s harmless fly to right closed it out.Next up, game No. 163.Chicago hosts Milwaukee on Monday afternoon and the Colorado Rockies visit the Los Angeles Dodgers as baseball holds a pair of tiebreaker games on the same day for the first time. At stake is the postseason road for each club.The winner at Wrigley gets a spot in the division series and home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs. The loser plays again Tuesday night, hosting the runner-up in the NL West in the wild-card game.“It’s interesting that baseball is such a perfect game in some ways that it takes 162 to not decide anything,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.St. Louis (88-74) was in contention heading into the final week of the season, but it was swept by Milwaukee before dropping two of three against Chicago. Catcher Yadier Molina, outfielder Marcell Ozuna and infielders Kolten Wong and Jedd Gyorko were held out of the finale due to nagging injuries.St. Louis missed out on the playoffs for a third straight year for the first time since it went 75-86 in 1999. It finished with a 41-28 record under Mike Shildt, who took over as manager after Mike Matheny was fired on July 14.“Three straight years of coming up short ,” said first baseman Matt Carpenter, who finished with a career-high 36 homers. “We as an organization, as a total group, top to bottom, everybody in this clubhouse, all the staff, we have to find a way to get better, to compete if we want to play in October.”The only other time Chicago began the final day of the regular season tied for the lead in its division or league was in 1908, when it beat Christy Mathewson and the New York Giants 4-2 at the Polo Grounds for the NL pennant. The Cubs then won their second straight World Series title before enduring a championship drought that cruised past a century before they won it all again in 2016.Rizzo and company are looking for another October run, but they have been plagued by an inconsistent offense. It looked like more of the same when Jack Flaherty (8-9) cruised into the third inning with a 2-0 lead and then retired the first two batters.Then everything changed.The next six batters reached for Chicago, producing four runs. Rizzo hit a tiebreaking double to give him 100 RBIs on the year, waving his arms in the air as he coasted into second. Jason Heyward added an RBI single.“Just the overall approach today, two outs, a lot of two-out rallies … just kept things going and kept the line moving,” Rizzo said Youth Yannick Ngakoue Jersey , “and we usually have good success when we do that.”The Cubs broke it open with four more in the fifth. Kris Bryant roped a two-run double into the left-field corner. Two batters later, Willson Contreras hit a drive to left for his first homer since Aug. 1.“We just couldn’t stop them,” Shildt said.Allen Webster (1-0), the first of eight Chicago relievers after Mike Montgomery was pulled in the third, got two outs for the win.Jose Martinez, Paul DeJong and Patrick Wisdom each had two hits for St. Louis, which left 12 runners on base. Munoz finished with three RBIs.CENTURY CLUBRizzo became the first lefty batter in franchise history with four seasons with at least 100 RBIs.TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: Wisdom was visited by a trainer and Shildt after he was hit by a pitch in the third. The trainer examined Wisdom’s left wrist for a short time, but he stayed in the game. … Wong (left knee) is expected to undergo an MRI in the near future, general manager Michael Girsch said.UP NEXTJose Quintana (13-11, 4.09 ERA) will start the tiebreaker for Chicago. Quintana is 6-2 with a 1.60 ERA in 10 career starts against Milwaukee. The Brewers did not announce a starter.
