Mike Yastrzemski launched a three-run, walk-off home run in the 10th inning to cap a San Francisco Giants rally that produced a 7-4 victory over the visiting San Diego Padres on Monday night in the opener of a four-game series
The homer was the second of the game for Yastrzemski, whose first was part of a comeback from an early 4-0 deficit as the Giants captured their eighth straight win
After Camilo Doval (2-2) threw a scoreless top of the 10th, automatic runner Joc Pederson and Thairo Estrada advanced into scoring position on a sacrifice bunt by Blake Sabol.
Yastrzemski then worked the count to 3-1 against Ray Kerr (0-1) before sending a no-doubter well over the wall in right field for his 10th homer of the season.
A no-out wild pitch by Luis Garcia got the Giants within 4-3 before Patrick Bailey’s one-out sacrifice fly off Drew Carlton tied the score
Kerr then struck out Pederson with the bases loaded to preserve the tie and send the game into the decisive 10th.
Ha-Seong Kim made it 3-0 with a two-run single off reliever Jakob Junis in the fourth. Jake Cronenworth, who had singled, and Rougned Odor, who had doubled, scored on the hit.
Soto completed San Diego’s scoring with another blast into the left field seats in the fifth. He now has 13 homers on the season.
Wacha survived solo home runs by David Villar in the fifth and Yastrzemski in the sixth to complete six innings with a 4-2 lead. He walked two and did not record a strikeout.
