PHILADELPHIA ( Associated Press) Kurt Casali hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat Philadelphia 5-4 in a long-ball contest on Monday, extending the Phillies’ four-loss streak and manager Which put pressure on Girardi. ,
“Sometimes, what you’re going through just seems like the worst thing,” Girardi said. “But you can probably look back and point to another place. They just have to keep working and grind it out. It’s going to turn — it’s going to happen. I believe in them.”
Philadelphia has lost 11 of 15 games and has seven games under .500 at 21-28 for the first time since the final day of 2017. Girardi was hired before 2020 and was expected to break the Philadelphia playoff drought that spanned 2011.
“Everyone in that room and in this room has gone through hard times in your life and you end up on the other side,” Girardi said. “Otherwise, you wouldn’t be in this room.”
Giants manager Gabe Kapler said he was going to suspend his protest and stand for the national anthem on Memorial Day, after the Kapler team also led them on a 10-game trip to a 2–2 victory in San Francisco.
“Ultimately, we think we’re going to get a good pitch to hit and that’s crooked innings,” Kapler said.
Wilmer Flores and Ivan Longoria also built homes for the Giants. Kyle Schwarber, Nick Castellanos and Rhys Hoskins went deep for the Phillies, who lost in extra innings for the second day in a row.
Eight out of nine runs were on homers.
With the score 3-3, Casali bowled a quick ball from Andrew Bellatti (1-1) into the left-field seats for his fourth homer this season. Alec Bohm hits a sacrifice fly in the bottom half.
“I was just thinking of running the ball and doing something better than my first three batsmen,” Casali said. “I was just happy to go to work and go home.”
Dominic Lyon (3-0) scored the ninth for the Giants.
Philadelphia close Cory Nebel allowed a ninth-inning homer for the second straight day, a two-out drive by Longoria that gave the Giants a 3-2 lead. Longoria has scored five home runs in his last five matches.
On Sunday, Nebel skipped the home race for a double walkoff for rookie Nick Plummer and Eduardo Escobar in ninth in the New York Mets’ 5-4, 10-innings win.
Legendary starter Logan Webb allowed a career-high three home runs – he had dropped more than once in a game.
Webb took 10 strikeouts and a three-hitter in the ninth without a walk. Originally told that his day was over after the eighth, Webb persuaded Kapler to let him remain in the game.
Looking for his first big league full game, Webb dropped a leadoff homer to Schwarber on his second pitch of the ninth, his 100th and final pitch of the game.
“I wanted it and I was very comfortable there,” Webb said. “I felt like it was my game.”
Castellanos took second and Hawkins in fourth place took a 2–0 lead. Flores hit a two-run homer in the sixth off Kyle Gibson, who gave away two runs and six hits in six innings.
Kapler stood outside the third base dugout at Citizens Bank Park during the national anthem.
He wrote in his blog before the game, “While I strongly believe in the right to protest and the importance of doing so, I also strongly believe in honoring and mourning the men and women who serve our country.” ”
