SAN DIEGO (AP) Matt Andriese Jersey , the San Francisco Giants got some big plays late to had the free-falling San Diego Padres their sixth straight loss.Gorkys Hernandez hit a go-ahead home run leading off the 12th inning, Will Smith struck out the last four San Diego batters and Austin Slater had a big play at first base as the Giants beat San Diego 5-3 Monday night.”Great win,” manager Bruce Bochy said. ”We had the lead and give them cedit, they found a way to come back. But we hung in there with some gutty efforts there by everybody. We’ve had some tough losses, so it’s good to win one like this on the road. Hard-fought by all those guys out there.”The Padres had runners on first and third with one out in the 11th and failed to score. Instead, they dropped to 2-8 since the All-Star break and lost for the 13th time in 15 games. San Diego is 5-19 in July.With runners on first and third in the bottom of the 11th, San Diego’s Austin Hedges bunted for the second out. Pitcher Sam Dyson fielded it and made a low throw to Slater, who picked it out of the dirt. Freddy Galvis advanced to second, but Christian Villanueva wasn’t able to score from third.”He threw it low and Slater picked us up,” Bochy said.Will Smith (1-1) came on and struck out Carlos Asuaje. He then struck out the side in the 12th.”That’s big. The winning run’s on third,” Smith said. ”You definitely don’t want to cash in your buddy’s runs, that’s for sure. You’ve got to bear down and make some good pitches there.”Hernandez homered to left on a 1-2 pitch from Matt Strahm (2-3), his 13th. The Giants got another run on Buster Posey’s fielder’s choice blooper.Watching the ball go out was ”awesome, because we had the lead,” Smith said. ”Twelfth inning like that http://www.raysfanproshop.com/authentic-c.-j.-cron-jersey , a game we really need to win, that was a big momentum swing. The dugout was loud, pumped up. He crushed it, so it was a big jolt for us.”The Giants had a scoring chance in the 10th, when Andrew McCutchen was hit by a pitch from Kirby Yates with two outs. He took third when Buster Posey’s comebacker caromed off Yates’ glove and the pitcher threw it away at first for an error. However, Yates got out of the jam when Evan Longoria popped up to second base.Asked if Hedges bunted on his own, manager Andy Green said: ”That situation right there I’ve got confidence in him swinging the bat and I’ve got confidence in him laying the bunt down. So he’s got the ability to do both, and that one just didn’t work out for us.”San Diego tied it with one out in the eighth when rookie Christian Villanueva doubled in Eric Hosmer, who singled with one out.The Giants took an early lead on Chase d’Arnaud’s three-run home run after rookie lefty Eric Lauer allowed singles to Brandon Crawford and Austin Slater opening the inning. It was the fifth for d’Arnaud, who played 22 games with San Diego last year.San Diego cut into the deficit on Hunter Renfroe’s leadoff homer in the fourth, his eighth, and Manuel Margot’s fly ball off the glove of left fielder Hernandez in the fifth. Margot was credited with a sacrifice fly and Hernandez with an error. It brought in Austin Hedges, who hit a leadoff double and advanced to third on a sacrifice.Derek Holland pitched into the sixth inning for the Giants, allowing two runs and four hits, with five strikeouts and two walks. He was lifted after walking Hosmer leading off the sixth.Lauer went five Jesus Sucre Jersey , allowing three runs and seven hits, with three strikeouts and two walks.FULL DAYJoe Panik had two at-bats for Triple-A Sacramento before flying to San Diego after being recalled by the Giants. He popped up as a pinch-hitter in the eighth.QUICK TRIPBochy arrived in San Diego at about 11 a.m. Monday after attending the Hall of Fame induction of former Padres closer Trevor Hoffman on Sunday. ”It was a hit and run,” Bochy said of going coast-to-coast twice in just more than 48 hours. He took a redeye Saturday night after the Giants’ game in San Francisco, arriving in Cooperstown, New York, at about 11:30 a.m. He stayed in Cooperstown Sunday night to attend a dinner with Hoffman’s family and friends. Bochy managed Hoffman for 12 years with the Padres. Bench coach Hensley Meulens managed the Giants to an 8-5 victory Sunday against Milwaukee.HOT CORNERPadres outfielder Wil Myers was taking grounders at third base before the game. Green said not to read too much of it. Still, Myers, San Diego’s first baseman before Eric Hosmer was signed, could be a defensive upgrade over Villanueva.TRAINER’S ROOMPlaced RHP Johnny Cueto on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained right elbow. Bochy said there’s a ”strong possibility” Cueto will need reconstructive surgery. INF Pablo Sandoval (strained right hamstring) also went on the DL.UP NEXTGiants: Rookie RHP Dereck Rodriguez (5-1, 2.75 ERA) is scheduled to start the matinee series finale. He didn’t factor in the decision in his start against San Diego on June 24, a 3-2 Giants win in which he held San Diego to one run and four hits in seven innings.Padres: LHP Clayton Richard (7-10, 5.05) is 0-2 with a 14.63 ERA in his two starts since the All-Star break. He didn’t factor in the decision in either of his starts against the Giants this year.— LAS VEGAS (AP) — Ask baseball managers what they think about the dreaded shift, and most of them have the same answer.It’s not a problem if the hitters don’t make it one.“There’s an easy way to combat that,” Oakland’s Bob Melvin said. “Just hit the ball the other way.”It’s a simple enough solution, though certainly an obvious one. Who among us http://www.raysfanproshop.com/authentic-jonny-venters-jersey , after all, hasn’t screamed at a batter to push the ball the other way or even bunt for a sure hit when the defense is loaded up on one side of the infield?The guys in the dugout surely have, even if job security dictates they do their screaming silently.“If a guy can use the whole field, they’re not going to shift you,” the Marlins’ Don Mattingly said.Unfortunately, guys don’t use the whole field anymore. They haven’t for some time because they play baseball to make money and the players who make the most money try to hit the ball as hard as they can to the place they’re most comfortable hitting it.Hitters aren’t going to adapt. There’s no real incentive for them to go the other way, even when all the numbers add up.So while managers at this week’s winter meetings talked about players adjusting to situations and shifts, their real audience is the guys in the dugout. And they, for the most part, aren’t listening.Push one down the third base line for an easy hit? You’d have better luck getting Manny Machado to hustle down to first.“The majority of the hitters, I’d say 90 to 95 percent, say to heck with it, I’m going to try to hit a homer and a double,” said Kansas City manager Ned Yost. “Our numbers for singles as a baseball league last year dropped way down. And you just lose strategy, you lose the ability to steal bases. You lose the ability to hit and run or bunt if you want to.”In other words Matt Moore Jersey , you’re losing a big part of baseball.The shift, if you haven’t noticed, is killing baseball. Maybe not by itself, but as part of a new analytics culture in the game that doesn’t value steals, sacrifice bunts, hit-and-runs or any kind of strategy that doesn’t always make sense when all the numbers are crunched.Major League Baseball has noticed, mainly because attendance was down last season and so were hits. Singles have been in decline for the last five years, and the league average of .248 was the worst in 46 years.Meanwhile, for the first time there were more strikeouts than hits in the game, and the World Series — at least on the Dodgers‘ side — was a badly flawed microcosm of what the game has become.That’s a big reason why baseball’s competition committee is looking at doing away with the shift, a move Commissioner Rob Manfred has said he is open to considering. Though baseball tends to move slow, there’s an outside chance both the commissioner’s office and the players’ union could agree to do something about the increasing use of the shift before next season.Banning the shift, of course, won’t magically make all the problems of the game go away. It might not change much at all, if you believe the analytics that show the shift mainly takes hits away from slow left-handed power hitters.But it’s a step toward making baseball look like baseball again. And it’s a step toward being more proactive when it comes to winning back fans turned off by the slow pace of games and the interminable periods in games where nothing ever seems to happen.“I just think that shift http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-alex-avila-jersey , it makes the game much, much more boring in my opinion,” said Yost, one of the few managers to take a stand against the shift.Thankfully for baseball, there is an easy solution.Two infielders on each side of second base. Both with at least one foot on the infield dirt.You know, like baseball used to be played.The guess is that it’s likely to happen, if only because no one but pitchers and the people in the analytics department have any love for the shift. That includes Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who used it so much last season that at times it seemed like third baseman Justin Turner was spending more time on the other side of the second base bag than in his normal position.Roberts said he believes baseball is a better game without the shift, though for now his immediate plans are to increase the time his hitters spend hitting to the opposite field in spring training to try to combat it.Here’s hoping they won’t need that extra practice.It’s time for the shift to go.
