Giancarlo Stanton Extends Home Run Streak To Six Games With Colossal Blast

He has belted a home run in each of his last five games and has 10 homers in the last 11.

Career minor leaguer Carlos Moncrief then came in to pinch hit for Bumgarner and delivered by knocking in Tomlinson on a RBI single to right field. Stanton joined Brewers' first baseman Eric Thames as the only players to homer in five consecutive games this season.

Austin Hedges and Jose Pirela each had two RBIs for San Diego. Stanton hit No. 42 on Sunday. It was his third home run in two games. Yes, already. The last time any player had as many as 15 home runs in August was 2003 (A-Rod). Nomar Mazara, Adrian Beltre, Drew Robinson and Robinson Chrinos also drove in runs, as did Joey Gallo, who belted his 33rd homer, a solo shot in the third inning.

Bettis was diagnosed with testicular cancer and underwent surgery in late November.

Bettis had surgery for the condition, but tests in March showed the cancer had spread to his lymph nodes.

He's only 27 years old, but there are still so many what-ifs. He left for a pinch-hitter in the seventh with the game still scoreless.


Mike Dunn (5-1) got the win and Greg Holland closed for his 35th save. He leads New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge by seven home runs.

Curtis Granderson and Yoenis Cespedes homered for the Mets.

Ozuna's home run actually wound up landing in the camera well more than 50 feet beyond the center field wall, and served as another reminder of the type of presence the Giants just haven't had this season. According to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, "the last players with 40 homers in their team's first 114 games: Stanton (2017), Chris Davis ('13), David Ortiz ('06), Barry Bonds ('01), Luis Gonzalez ('01) and Sammy Sosa ('01)".

Run-scoring doubles by Ketel Marte and J.D. Martinez were the difference. He struck them all out in order that inning. The bullpen allowed six runs overall.

Mark Melancon, Hunter Strickland and Cory Gearrin each threw a scoreless inning of relief, while Bumgarner picked up his third win of the season.

BOSTON - Edwin Encarnacion crushed a pair of two-run homers as Cleveland beat Boston at Fenway Park. The lone starter in the Giants' rotation who possessed a winning record coming into the series, Blach fell back to.500 (8-8) when he was saddled with the loss.


Meanwhile, Straily has beaten the Giants every time he has faced them, going 4-0 with a 1.91 ERA.

Wilson Ramos homered for the Rays.

Over those three appearances, Baumgarner has allowed just three runs in 21 innings while striking out 21 and walking four.

Martin Perez (7-10) had a second straight solid start for Texas. He joked that he took motivation from Buster Posey's ribbing over matching him in stolen bases.

One of his biggest issues has been poor run support.

Manny Machado hit a grand slam off former teammate Yovani Gallardo as the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Seattle Mariners.


Clearly, Stanton recognizes that his fellow Home Run Thing is also awesome and spectacular, and he's either making a case for keeping it or ushering it out by making sure it operates as frequently as possible over its final couple of months.
