Wilmer Flores hit 2 more HRs as Giants outlast Reds 11-10

Wilmer Flores had an impressive performance, hitting two home runs and driving in five runs, leading the San Francisco Giants to their seventh consecutive victory against the Cincinnati Reds. The Giants also won the completion of Monday’s suspended game, with Flores contributing two doubles and a home run, and Joc Pederson driving in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning. Flores’ outstanding performance resulted in him accumulating 16 total bases over the two games, a feat that hasn’t been achieved by a Giants player since Barry Bonds in 2002.

In the second game, Scott Alexander secured the win for the Giants by striking out three batters in the sixth inning, with Camilo Doval earning his 30th save of the season in the ninth inning. Despite the Reds having runners on first and second with one out, Doval managed to induce a game-ending double play from Spencer Steer. Joey Votto hit his 350th career home run for the Reds, but it wasn’t enough to prevent their sixth consecutive loss.

After completing the suspended game, the start of Tuesday’s contest was delayed by heavy rain showers, causing flooding on the outfield and infield warning tracks. However, once the game began, Flores continued his impressive hitting streak by hitting home runs in his first two at-bats against Cincinnati starter Luke Weaver. The Reds managed to take a 4-1 lead with two-run homers from Jake Fraley and Will Benson, their first three-run lead since their last victory on July 8.

Weaver was forced to leave the game after being hit by a line drive from Michael Conforto, resulting in a welt above his left elbow. The Giants capitalized on the opportunity and scored three runs off reliever Derek Law, including a tiebreaking double from Mike Yastrzemski, giving them a 7-5 lead. However, the Reds quickly regained the lead at 8-7 when Christian Encarnacion-Strand hit a pinch-hit home run, ending their 0-for-28 drought with runners in scoring position.

Flores once again played a crucial role in the game, tying the score with a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. The Giants then scored three runs in the seventh inning, with Luis Matos delivering a two-run single, giving them an 11-8 lead. The Giants held on to secure the victory.

In conclusion, Wilmer Flores’ outstanding performance, along with contributions from other Giants players, led to their seventh consecutive win against the struggling Cincinnati Reds. The game was not without its challenges, as weather delays and injuries affected both teams. However, the Giants showcased their resilience and offensive prowess, ultimately emerging victorious.
