ATLANTA — Austin Wynns’ career game at the plate carried the Giants to a 12-10 win in a slugfest with the Braves on Tuesday at Truist Park.
Wynns, who was acquired in a trade with the Phillies in exchange for left-hander Michael Plassmeyer and cash considerations on June 8, matched his career high with four RBIs and logged a career-best three hits as he finished a triple shy of the cycle. Wynns went 3-for-4, including a three-run homer and an RBI double.
Wynns’ stellar performance was much needed in a shaky return by right-hander Anthony DeSclafani, who came off the 60-day injured list to make his first start since April 21. The 32-year-old tossed just three innings, giving up five runs on six hits and a walk to go with three strikeouts.
San Francisco added three insurance runs in the top of the ninth inning on an RBI single by Thairo Estrada and a two-run single from Wilmer Flores. Those runs were crucial as closer Camilo Doval was tagged for a two-run homer by Matt Olson in the bottom half.
The Giants’ bullpen held on against the Braves, who led twice in this one, despite yielding five runs over the final six innings to secure the win and even the four-game set at one apiece.
