The Giants were 6-1 down in the sixth inning and rallied at the top of the innings to respond to the Dodgers’ four. With Wilmer Flores in first base and Lamonte Wade Jr. in third, Brendon Crawford put a 1-0 pitch on the right field that fell to outfielder Mookie Bates.
Flores tried to run on a logical basis from the first to the third base on Crawford’s hit to keep up the pressure. According to StateCast, Floors’ Sprint Speed is at the bottom of the Majors at 12%. Paired with an excellent throw by the Bates, who pushed Justin Turner, the third baseman of the Dodgers, into a laser hurricane, Flores had no chance. Turner put a tag on the floors that slipped in front of the base for the third out of the innings.
Wade Jr. scored on Crawford’s hit, but the mistake of running the base took one of the giants’ scoring chances. Flores scored the first goal of the Giants and ran Dodgers starter Julio Urias in the second inning on a sacrifice fly by Downs Solano. With Crawford’s hit, the Giants went from 1 to 7 with the runners in the scoring position.
The series is tied at 1-1, with the Giants playing the next two at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
