Cardinals vs SF Giants offense halts, as 6-game win streak hits

scheduled tribe. LOUIS — Misplays, misses and missed opportunities ruined another strong outing from starting the San Francisco Giants’ newest member’s rotation and halted their season-best six-game winning streak.

After his final start, Giants manager Gabe Kapler announced Jacob Junis as a member of the San Francisco rotation. On a hot Saturday afternoon, he pitched like a man worthy of a spot, but didn’t find the support to extend San Francisco’s winning streak to seven.

Junis restricted the Cardinals to two runs in his 5⅔ innings, but St. Louis scored two more in the seventh, when Austin Slater fought the Suns and lost, allowing a regular fly ball—which was from the inning. The third would have been – to drop . It was four runs for a Listless Giants lineup to recover from a 4–0 loss.

San Francisco had averaged more than eight runs per game during their six-match winning streak, but could not score a single on Saturday, despite putting runners on base in the scoring position one innings and four times. San Francisco dropped nine runners to base and was out for the second time this season.

Junis, the free-agent takeover who broke camp with Triple-A Sacramento, has been a revelation in the four long appearances since joining the big club. He revamped his repertoire to prioritize his slider, which was displayed again on Saturday against the Cardinals.

With two earned runs on six hits in 5⅔ innings, Junis’ ERA stands at 1.74 in four appearances (two starts), which is the lowest point of a staff to have pitched as many innings as Junis (20⅓).

Between Brendan Donovan’s RBI double, which got St. Louis on board in the second inning, and Tommy Edman’s home going into the Cardinals’ bullpen, which made it 2-0, Junis retired nine straight at-bats. It wasn’t until St. Louis, combining back-to-back base hits with two outs in the sixth, that Kapler turned to his bullpen, tried to knock out former Cardinal John Brebia in the final of the innings. brought for

There was brebia on the mound in seventh when Slater let a two-out fly ball from Paul Goldschmidt fall on the grass. Nolan Arenado followed with a double to left field that brought Goldschmidt home and made it 4-0.

The Giants had no shortage of scoring opportunities, but they could not take advantage of any of them.

Donovan Walton, who was acquired this week in a trade with Seattle, served as the end of two innings but also kickstarted another rally. He saw three strikes after Luis Gonzalez’s two-out double in second, then went off the field after Gonzalez’s walk to finish fourth.

With one of the sixth, Walton doubled the left field line for his first hit with the Giants and made it to third base as San Francisco loaded bases for Brandon’s belt. Belt saw five pitches, nothing more than a boundary line strike, but bowed out on a 3–1 offer and got into double play at the end of an innings.

Joy Bart took a 1-0 sinker on the other side for a single to take fifth place. He made it to third with cleanup hitter Mike Yastrzemski at the plate, but Jock Pedersen flew from first and got caught between the bags while Bart held steady at third base.
