(SAN FRANCISCO) – Mike Yastrzemski briefly lost the line drive in the lights, but the right fielder realized he needed to scurry back because the ball had gotten over his head and he would have to jump. So he closed his eyes, leapt, and somehow made the catch. That robbed slugger Miguel Cabrera of a likely extra-base hit, and helped the San Francisco Giants hold off the Detroit Tigers for a 4-3 win. Yastrzemski also hit a two-run single and made a terrific throw as well to go with his defensive gem. Giants lefty Carlos Rodón (7-4) allowed one run and seven hits in six innings with four strikeouts and no walks. He hoped to pitch another inning before the nail on his middle finger split and wouldn't allow him to keep going. Rodón has permitted just two runs over his last 27 innings. Dominic Leone had walked just six batters over his first 29 appearances before issuing three free passes and giving up Willi Castro’s RBI single with two outs in the eighth. ...... {LISTEN}. Camilo Dova relieved and struck out Jonathan Schoop, then finished for his 12th save. Doval got Javier Báez to ground into a game-ending double play, with the call at first base upheld after a replay review. Cabrera got the Tigers on the board with an RBI single in the sixth. Evan Longoria hit a two-run single in the first off Tarik Skubal (5-6). The lefty was done after 4 2/3 innings and hasn't gone more than five innings in four straight outings. A native of the East Bay suburb Hayward, Skubal yielded three runs and four hits and lost his fourth consecutive start. This marks the Tigers' first trip to San Francisco since being swept by the Giants in the 2012 World Series, and their first visit for a regular-season series since 2008.
