Greek Giant

With a name like “Wynns” Austin must be used to all the bad sports puns by now.

New Giant Austin Wynns went 3-4 and drove in 4 runs in the Giants epic 12-10 victory over the Braves last night at Henry Aaron Field. The game was a roller coaster ride fro the get-up-and-go. There were four lead changes in the game. The Giants took an early 4-2 lead after two innings. In the top of the fourth they put up a four-spot only to see the Braves answer with two of their own off Anthony Desclafani. That’s all I wills say about his outing.

The Giants would two runs in the fourth and sixth before plating a run in the seventh and adding three in the ninth. Those three in the ninth were crucial since Camilo Doval coughed up two runs in the bottom half of the inning but managed to close out the game.

Joc Pederson and Wynns homered and Yaz hit a big two-run double in the top of the sixth inning to bust out of his mini slump.

Look at this beautiful swing:

With the win the Giants have won 8 of 11 and 14 of 22. The difference in that stretch has been the starting pitching. But on this night it was the bats responsible for the W.
