Longoria sends a solo discus for the Giants on the Diamondbacks 3-2

Phoenix (AFP) – Evan Longoria got the green light, got the green light in the eighth inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Sunday.

Brandon Crawford of the Eighth Giants led by one goal against Luis Frias (1-1) and moved up to second after Cooper Hummel’s pass. One after that, Jason Vossler walked, and another pass took the runners into second and third.

Wilmer Flores walked the Pinch-hitter to load the bases and relieved Reyes Moronta from Frias. Longoria singles left scored the Giants’ first two runs after leaving 10 riders at the base without scoring in the first seven rounds.

Camilo Duvall made ninth for his 26th save, giving up running, walking and hitting. Novice Corbin hit Carroll to finish it off, throwing a one-shot 104 mph to match his fastest of the season on Friday.

Jacob Gunness (5-6), who entered the match with two wins in the third inning, lost four strokes and one inning in 5-1-3 runs. He hit seven and walked one.

JD Davis had four hits for the Giants, including Mark Melancon’s Homer solo in the center-right pool area for ninth.

Left-handed Scott Alexander opened for the Giants and conceded one hit in the first. Garleen Garcia came in second and took five points before clearing the way for Jeunesse.

Dre Jameson of Arizona made his third strong start since being called up from Triple-A Reno. He went 5-1-3 innings, delivered five hits and didn’t run. He won his first two games against San Diego and Los Angeles and has 0.98 ERA in 18 1-3 runs to start his career.

Pavin Smith double in the fifth Sergio Alcantara scored to give the Diamondbacks the lead. Smith also drove the car in a fly-by race against Duval.

The second Giants’ Ford Proctor, called up from Triple-A on Saturday, scored his first league hit on Sunday, a sharp song he let go in the seventh inning of Ginkel.

Boom stops here

Diamondbacks coach Tori Lovulo said before Sunday’s game that LHP Madison Bumgarner will not play again this season.

“He’s in good health. We just have some younger arms we want to look at,” Lovolo said.

“He is understanding. Boom is a competitor, he wants to go out and work and help his team. He is a good teammate. He understood the rationale.”

Bumgarner finished 2022 with a 7-15 record, 4.88 ERA in 30 starts, and 1,437 WHIP. The 33-year-old left-hander has two years left on a five-year, $85 million contract he signed in 2020 after 11 seasons with the Giants that included three World Championship titles.

In his final start on Thursday, Baumgarner went six runs and carried the Dodgers on a one-stroke — the Mocky Bates’ singles run — in a 6-1 win in Los Angeles. It was Baumgarner’s first win since July 23, and Lovolo said the strong outing was a factor in his decision.

“I felt like, let’s finish the year on that and go off season,” he said.

In his three years with Arizona, Baumgarner was 15-29 with a 4.98 ERA after moving 119-92, 3.13 in San Francisco. He was the NLCS and World Series MVP in 2014.

“It’s always a work in progress,” Lovolo said. “This will be chapter 2 of his career. It has not been a good year, some adjustments have to be made. He will make those adjustments.”

Sunday’s attendance at Chase Field was 25,389, for a final season totaling 1,605,199 — an average of 19,817 fans per game.
