Patrick Bailey’s 4-hit day, 2-run homer into McCovey Cove lift Giants over Diamondbacks 7-3

AP

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Patrick Bailey drove in three runs and had four hits, including a two-run homer into McCovey Cove, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-3 on Saturday.

Bailey’s home run off Zac Gallen (3-1) landed in a floating kayak and broke a 3-3, fifth-inning tie. It was the 165th splash hit since Oracle Park opened in 2000, the 103rd by a Giants hitter and the first by a switch-hitter since the Cubs’ Robel García in 2019.

Bailey went 4-for-4 on a day when the first 15,000 fans received a bobblehead of the catcher, the second four-hit game of Bailey’s career. He finished a triple shy of the cycle, and all his hits were with two outs.

Kyle Harrison allowed three runs and six hits in four innings, and the Giants’ bullpen fibished with scoreless relief. Ryan Walker (2-2) pitched hitless ball for the win.

San Francisco can get its second straight series with a win on Sunday, responding after a 17-1 loss to Arizona on Friday.

Gallen, who gave up five runs in five innings, had been 7-0 with a 1.32 ERA in 14 April starts.

Jung Hoo Lee homered for the Giants to lead off in the first inning and hit an RBI double in the eighth, extending his hit streak to 11 games.

Diamondbacks: RHP Paul Sewald (oblique) threw 15 pitches in an extended bullpen session on Friday. … RHP Ryne Nelson (right elbow contusion), who is on the 15-day injured list, feels “surprisingly well,” and the “stiffness wasn’t as bad as he thought” after being hit by a comebacker on Thursday, according to manager Torey Lovullo.

Giants: RHP Sean Hjelle (mild right elbow sprain) was activated from the 15-day injured list after a rehab stint, and RHP Kai-Wei Teng was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento after Friday’s game.

RHP Jordan Hicks (2-0, 1.57 ERA) pitches for the Giants against RHP Merrill Kelly (2-0, 2.19 ERA) for the Diamondbacks.
