Posey Leads Giants Past Dodgers, Tatis Pushes Padres

Jonathan Grant | July 28th, 2021

The San Francisco Giants, just like life, seem to always find a way. At least lately, that is, when they take on the Los Angeles Dodgers. Since being swept in the opening four meetings between the two teams, they have rattled off seven wins out of ten, three in a row, and four out of five now following Tuesday night’s wild 2-1 win at home. Billy McKinney provided the first and only run for the Dodgers on a single in the fifth before Buster Posey tied it up at one apiece in the sixth with an RBI single of his own.

Two innings later, he would score the winning run as Cody Bellinger threw an utterly wild toss across the diamond that resulted in an error and Posey touching the plate. That gave James McGee the lead and an opportunity to close the game, and he did just that, wrapping up a contest for the 21st time this season. Division rivals San Diego also got a big win at home to the Oakland A’s, downing them 7-4 in large part due to the long ball. Having fallen behind 3-0 early, Fernando Tatis, Jr. hit a two-run bomb to get them on the board. Jake Cronenworth then tied it up in the bottom of the fifth with an RBI single before Manny Machado’s three-run homer flipped the game on its head at 7-3. The A’s did score late, but they only mustered one run and fell 7-4.
