Diamondbacks SS Marte leaves with hamstring injury

Diamondbacks SS Marte leaves with hamstring injury”

The problem for San Francisco?

Marte was 0 for 1 with an intentional walk in two plate appearances and was involved in six putouts in his five innings against the Giants.

While Bumgarner is entirely capable of throwing nine shutout innings on any given night, those types of performances haven't materialized this season. I've said that plenty of times before. And with the Giants' lineup, very good hasn't been enough.

Goldschmidt, Martinez, and Daniel "Scals" Desclaso proceeded to hit back-to-back-to-back home runs for good measure in the eighth, scoring nine total runs in the inning and putting the game completely out of reach for the Giants.

- Bumgarner allowed just two runs, dropping his ERA a tick to 2.85.

- With two on and two down in the seventh, Bruce Bochy let Bumgarner hit for himself against lefty Andrew Chafin. Yet just as he did on Saturday, Bumgarner took the loss, as the Giants mustered just a single run on his behalf.

Pollock homered off Madison Bumgarner in the second inning and Martinez broke a 1-1 tie with his homer in the fourth to help Walker (7-7) halt a four-game losing streak. Chris Stratton gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 3.98 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. Arizona, seemingly headed for the playoffs, has found a way to pitch here and win here. Twice on Saturday, Bumgarner left pitches out over the heart of the plate, and twice, Diamondbacks' hitters launched those mistakes into the bleachers.

"He is doing stuff elite pitches do", Bochy said. Goldy and Flaco have hit back-to-back home runs four times this season. It's incredible in today's game. It's just part of the game. That's what you're dealing with now. "There are not too many guys who hit those pitches".

Martinez untied it with a homer in the bottom of the inning, a line drive to left-center on a 3-2 pitch.

Paul Goldschmidt is having an MVP-caliber year, and America's first baseman flexed his muscle this series, hitting two three-run home runs in Friday and Sunday's games.

"I feel like maybe I'm not rushing as much as I was", Corbin said. "Sometimes (I) got amped up a little bit more". The Diamondbacks have won the first two games of the series and six of the last 10 matchups.

"I guess he has gotten real good at hitting high fastballs over the previous year or two, because that's two of them that he's hit off me in basically the same spot", Bumgarner said.

Known as "Tai-Weezy" during Players Weekend, Walker retired the first 11 batters he faced, but gave up a solo home run to Jarrett Parker in the fourth inning.

If the team hopes to give him rest, the offense will have to provide more run support as they look for the series sweep on Sunday.

It wasn't ideal, but Walker earned three strikeouts and is back in the win column. He has surrendered only one run in his oast four starts over 30 1/3 innings, a homer by New York Mets rookie shortstop Amed Rosario on Tuesday. The Giants have to save that for October. And they'll have to save October for another season.
