Giants beat first place D & # 39; s back behind rookies Suarez, Slater




PHOENIX – Will Smith's first major league match day in 2014 was memorable as he had no idea he deserved one. He met a thug, Pittsburgh's Pedro Alvarez, and hit him after Milwaukee starter Kyle Lohse dominated for 82/3 innings.

"Everyone congratulated me and I go for what?" Smith said Friday night after saving his second career. In a major 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks at Chase Field, he threw a perfect ninth.

First place in the division to win a game in the ranking is big enough. Friday's circumstances made it feel bigger.

The Giants earned a one-run victory behind rookies Andrew Suarez and Austin Slater and got three perfect innings of the bullpen after Sam Dyson missed a one-run lead over the Rockies at home and manager Bruce Bochy declared that he would open the final job for others.


Reyes Moronta, a third-time rookie, got three ground balls in the seventh, the last of them Paul Goldschmidt to get him out of the way. Tony Watson beat the eighth because he had warmed up in case Moronta needed help in the seventh.

Smith then beat two of his three batsmen for the win, the ninth of the Giants in 1

2 games. PHOENIX, AZ – JUNE 29: Austin Slater # 53 of the San Francisco Giants hits an RBI double against the Arizona Diamondbacks during the second inning of the MLB game at Chase Field on June 29, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona.


"We were able to bring some energy and help to win a ball game," Slater said. "It's great to see the young guys come in and leave an impression."

Slater drove in the two Giants races with double doubles, in the second against Patrick Corbin and in the seventh against the equally strong left-hander Andrew Chafin. This made a 1-1 draw.


Slater added a broken bat single in the eighth for his third punch, against a third left, T.J. McFarland

Slater's doubles brought Suarez, who defeated in his debut on April 11 the team that had beaten him. He allowed four runs and two homers that night, one from Goldschmidt, whom he held on Friday for a walk, an infield hit and a deep fly in his six innings.

Five of the seven goals against Suarez did not leave the infield. Giving up so Bleeder could even make a 10-year veteran cuckoo, but it did not bother the 25-year-old left-hander.

"The child is not in awe of anything," Bochy said. "He punched out his heart."

Bochy then danced like Fred Astaire when he was asked to rate Suarez's job as the boy who should keep his place in rotation when Jeff Samardzija and Johnny Cueto return in the next few weeks.

Bochy is not ready to start Suarez, Chris Stratton and Dereck Rodriguez Tuesday night, but Suarez must be the clubhouse leader after the series of starts he cobbling. He has a 2.35 ERA over his last four games, which does not include his seven shutout innings against the Phillies to start the month.

Suarez has the stuff and the command to stay.

The Slater problem is just as complicated. He is the boy on a roster that includes the other outfielders Hunter Pence and Austin Jackson, who are earning $ 18.5 million this year, the latter only two years, $ 6 million.

Bochy must be Astaire and Ginger Rogers in this dance.

Alen Hanson will be for the time being the left fielder against right-handed. Slater can buy more starts against lefties with games like Friday.

"You have to go along, who is swinging the bat well," Bochy said, "and hope the other guys understand."

Jackson was 0-for-3 in a rare start, his first since June 15 and sixth in the club's last 35 games. Bochy said Gorky's Hernandez had a planned day off and Jackson was "held hostage for a long time."
