ATLANTA – Giants manager Gabe Kapler learned that Mike Jastrzemsky was about to break down and end his frustration at the plate.
“He understands that turmoil happens during a major league baseball season,” Kapler said. “He just doesn’t let it get the best of him, so it wasn’t surprising at all to see him hit the ball into the right-hand streak of the day.”
Jastrzemski came out of a two-way slump with the green light twice in the sixth inning, smashing Jock Pederson, Austin Wins and the San Francisco win over the Atlanta Braves 12-10 on Tuesday night.
Jastrzemski was in pole position in his last 19 matches when he drove a Collin McHugh volley to the right taking the Giants forever with a score of 8-7. Pederson called the 15th home owner on the 7th from McHugh, and Wiens ran deep in the second from Spencer Strider as he picked up a San Francisco sled from two games.
Kapler saw the Giants getting close to sticking good hits together as a team. All went well on Tuesday.
He said: “I’m not sure who to refer to. I thought we had quality players in our squad and throughout the match we needed every single one of them.”
Olson died twice, and Ronald Acuna Jr. and Marcel Ozuna went to Atlanta, who tops the NL with 105 players.
Braves, the defending World Series champion, won second in the NL East, two times in a row and 16 of 18 on June 1. Winning streak instead.
Braves manager Brian Snitker said: “We kept changing it. We couldn’t stop the bleeding a few times. When we were up 7-6, I knew we needed to keep scoring. It just didn’t work out.”
San Francisco, who finished third in the NL West, won eight of 11 and 14 of 22. The Giants scored three runs in ninth place on Cerro Estrada’s singles singles and Walmer Flores.
Darren O’Day (1-1) took the loss after allowing two hitters and two hitters and failing to retire any of the three hitters he faced in the sixth.
Tyler Rogers played (1-3) two rounds to take the win.
Homer Acuña’s seventh was a 409-foot shot from Zach Little that bounced into the second set from left field to make it 7-6 in the fourth inning. Second Michael Harris hit a field before calling Acuña, who finished 3 for 5.
San Francisco scored two goals at the top of fourth place to advance 6-5. Tommy La Stella and Brandon Crawford made a single for Wynns ‘RBI’ that tied it up, and Crawford scored at Luis Gonzalez’s sacrifice on a call that was canceled after Crawford was originally disqualified.
This chased Strider, who battled with six runs and six strokes allowed in 3 and 2/3 runs. Giants player Anthony Disclavani, who is back on the roster after losing nearly two months to right ankle inflammation, has fared no better as he has been charged with six hits and five runs in three rounds.
The 13th Homer Ozuna cut the difference 4-2 in the bottom of a second. Travis Darno hit a broken single bat hit and scored when Ozuna called into the left center with a shot from 427 feet.
Dansby Swanson and Austin Riley saved one for third. Olson followed him up with Homer IX, a 432-foot shot that gave the Braves a short 5-4 lead. Homer Olson 10 cut the difference to 12-10 in the ninth game.
Crawford’s fly and first Homer Wiens, a three-stroke shot to the left, made it 4-0 a second. Wynn went 3 for 4.
Wiens said, “I just did my part, man. That’s all I wanted to do. It was a fight today. We needed our whole squad, throwing, defending, hitting, so it was huge. I’m glad I did my part.”
Homer’s first giants hasn’t hit a single shot in the last 12 long balls, for two weeks.
“Heat up the air and throw him down. He’s a good bowler, man. Elite fastball,” Wiens said.
Crawford left the match after De Arnaud fell on his left leg at home as he slipped safely on the sacrificed Gonzalez fly. Wilmer Flores entered second and Estrada moved into a short stop to replace Crawford, who bruised his left knee. … giants LHP José Álvarez has been put on the 15-day sufferer list with lumbar tightness.
The poor playing field injured the Giants in the seventh inning. Wynns’ pass allowed Akonia, who was running in the play, to advance from first to third. Acuña then scored twice to cut the lead down to 9-8 when Estrada stood second for the anticipated power, narrowing past third baseman Ivan Longoria’s soft throw at the Olson defender. Estrada replaced himself with an RBI song in the ninth that made him 10-8.
Undertaker Camilo Duvall of San Francisco angrily threw his glove out onto the lawn after scoring the second of the nine. Kapler said Duvall, who had just given up on Homer Olson II, thought he was his third and was frustrated.
Giants LHP Carlos Rodón (6-4, 2.84 ERA) will take the hill against Braves RHP Charlie Morton (4-3, 5.08) as the teams play the third game of a four-game series. Rodon faces Atlanta for the first time. Morton is 4-5 with 2.55 ERA in 14 career starts against San Francisco.
