Will Giants' ace Madison Bumgarner beat the Padres in his return to the mound tonight at 8:40PM ET? The home run was Rendon's second of the day and part of a seven-run seventh inning. Sanchez, in the lineup for injured Austin Hedges, smacked the first pitch he saw 407 feet into the left-field seats for the Padres' sixth win in nine games.

It took 16 innings for the Yankees to claim their win, finally overcoming the Boston Red Sox 4-1.

Blash started the winning rally when he singled leading off the ninth against Cory Gearrin (3-3) and advanced on Erick Aybar's sacrifice bunt against Steven Okert.

Bumgarner missed the last three months with a left shoulder AC sprain sustained in a dirt bike accident on April 20. He began his outing as dominantly as possible, striking out the side in order in the first inning.

Bumgarner, a four-time All-Star and the 2014 World Series MVP, didn't show much rust.

Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn struck out just three and gave up eight hits, but did not allow a run in 6 1/3 innings against the Pirates. He had five strikeouts and two walks in a 102-pitch effort.

The Giants snapped a four-game losing streak and won for the second time in seven games.

Joe Panik made it a tie ball game with a solo homer in the sixth for his sixth homerun of the season, but Sanchez put the game to bed with the walk-off in the bottom of ninth. Chacin tried to sneak a 78 miles per hour fastball past Panik and he nailed it for his sixth home run on the year.

Johnny Cueto was pulled after allowing three runs in four innings Friday against the Padres. For Blash, who was called up from Triple-A El Paso on Friday, it was his second homer of the year and his first since April 25.

Chacin was on the ropes from the start as the Giants scored twice in the first inning.

Jhoulys Chacin gave up three runs and six hits in six innings, struck out four and walked four. Blash's blast gave the Padres a 3-2 lead, and helped San Diego take control of a game that San Francisco almost led 6-0 just two innings earlier.

Padres: RF Hunter Renfroe was placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Monday, with a strained neck.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Matt Cain will replace Cueto in the rotation.
