SF Giants fall back into losing ways with loss to Cubs

SAN FRANCISCO — The Giants’ are back to their losing ways after the Cubs handed them a 4-2 loss on Friday night at Oracle Park.

Wilmer Flores’ two-run home run in the ninth inning salvaged a disappointing performance in which the Giants had collected 11 hits without a run to show for it until that point. The home run capped off a three-hit night for Flores, and he was one of three Giants to have multi-hit games. But they went 3-for-10 with runners in scoring position. None scoring.

After Alex Wood’s strong performance on Thursday to get the Giants out of a seven-game losing streak, Alex Cobb kept the strong start train rolling with a 11-strikeout performance.

Working his splitter well, Cobb kept the Cubs off the bases for the first three innings. He hit Willson Contreras with a pitch in the fourth inning and Ian Happ singled up the middle for Cobb’s first hit allowed. Patrick Wisdom put the Cubs on the board in the fifth inning with a solo home run, his second home run in as many days.

Cobb made it to the seventh inning, but was pulled after issuing his first walk of he game for Dominic Leone, who walked the first two batters he saw to load the bases. After a mound visit, Leone struck out Alfonso Rivas and drew a double play to leave the bases loaded.

The Giants offense squandered multiple scoring opportunities against a shaky Cubs starter Marcus Stroman. They had a pair of runners on in the first inning when Mike Yastrzemski singled, but Wilmer Flores was thrown out at home by Ian Happ.

Jason Vosler’s double had potential to score LaMonte Wade from first base, but third base coach Mark Hallberg threw up a red light on Wade to put runners in scoring position with one out. But Joey Bart and Tommy La Stella flew out and grounded out to end the threat.
