All-time record high temps set or tied in five Bay Area cities

San Jose Mercury - Tue, 09/06/2022 - 21:56

Nearly half a dozen Bay Area cities set or tied all-time record high temperatures Tuesday as a heat wave continued to roast the region, according to the National Weather Service.

The mercury peaked at 115 degrees in Santa Rosa and 114 in Napa, besting previous records of 113 set in 1913 and 1961, respectively, the weather service reported.

San Jose saw a high of 109, just a degree warmer than the old record set in 2017, according to the weather service.

The searing temperatures caused bus service delays in Santa Clara County, the Valley Transportation Authority reported. About 40 buses, or 10% of the agency’s normal weekday service, were pulled off routes because of heat-related mechanical failures.

Livermore and Redwood City, meanwhile, tied their previous records of 116 and 110, respectively, according to the weather service. Livermore’s record was just set Monday and Redwood City’s was set in 1972.

Livermore’s 116 is the highest ever recorded in the Bay Area.

SF Giants’ bullpen game not good enough, win streak snapped vs. Dodgers

San Jose Mercury - Tue, 09/06/2022 - 21:53

LOS ANGELES — A taxed Giants bullpen was asked to cover every inning against the Dodgers on Tuesday night with Alex Wood on the injured list, but all it took was a blip from one reliever to snap San Francisco’s four-game win streak.

Lewis Brinson gave San Francisco a lead on the first pitch of the game with his third home run in two games, but Jarlín García coughed it up the next inning, and the Giants were never able to climb out of that hole in a 6-3 loss.

Here are some takeaways.

Jarlín’s troubles: So dominant to start the season that he etched his name in the franchise record books, Jarlín García has had a rough go of it since finally allowing his first runs of the season on June 1.

Tagged for two home runs and five earned runs over 1⅔ innings between the second and the third Tuesday night, García’s ERA since that outing in Philadelphia increased to 5.15.

García reeled off 22 straight appearances without allowing an earned run, tying a franchise record, but that streak was snapped when he allowed two homers in a loss to the Phillies on June 1, and ever since has been the Giants’ most homer-prone reliever.

García relieved opener John Brebbia to start the second inning and proceeded to put the first two batters he faced on base. Joey Gallo made him pay, punishing a middle-middle 3-1 fastball for a three-run homer that gave the Dodgers a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.

Max Muncy, who also doubled off García to open the second, made it 5-1 in the third with his first of two home runs, which knocked García from the game. It was the ninth home run García has allowed this season — all since June 1 — two more than any other reliever on the team.

Still, García took the best ERA in the bullpen besides Camilo Doval into Tuesday night’s contest. But his outing raised his overall mark this season from 2.77 to 3.52, trading places in the bullpen ranking with John Brebbia.

Brebbia, who tossed one shutout inning as the opener, lowered his ERA to 2.98 while making his major-league leading 64th appearance.

With García failing to escape the third inning, the Giants asked Tyler Rogers to shoulder the load, and he didn’t allow a run over 2⅓ innings.

Muncy tagged Dominic Leone for his second home run of the night, a solo shot to lead off the sixth, that padded the Dodgers’ lead, making the score 6-3.

The Giants fell to 5-6 in bullpen games this season.

Have a series, Lewis: Although the Giants would give it up it for good in the second inning, it took only one pitch for leadoff man Lewis Brinson to give them a lead Tuesday night.

On the first pitch of the game from Los Angeles starter Tyler Anderson, Brinson unleashed a 400-foot home run into the left-field bleachers, his third homer in two games here. In Brinson’s 13th career game as a leadoff hitter, not only was the homer his first to start a game but his first leadoff hit of any kind.

It’s hard to imagine a better introduction to the Giants fanbase than three home runs at Dodger Stadium. Within his first week with the Giants, Brinson became the first San Francisco player since Hunter Pence in 2013 to slug three homers in a two-game span against their archrivals.

More impressive: all three have gone to different parts of the ballpark.

All 10 of the homer-happy Giants’ runs through the first two games of this series have come via the long ball.

Shortstop Brandon Crawford cut the deficit to 5-3 in the sixth, hooking a towering two-run home run down the right field line — the Giants’ seventh homer in two games but also the last damage they would do Tuesday night.

NL West woes: After going 10-9 against the Dodgers last year as the two clubs battled to the finish line, it has been a different story this season. The loss dropped the Giants to 4-11 against Los Angeles.

The Giants have a winning record against only one NL West opponent — the Rockies — and fell to 21-35 against divisional opponents, with 21 losses in their past 26 games. Their .375 winning percentage would rank as the third-lowest against divisional opponents in franchise history, though 20 of their final 28 games left are against NL West foes.

Their deficit to the Dodgers increased back to 27.5 games, and their elimination number dropped to one. A loss in the series finale Wednesday afternoon would mathematically end their chances of catching the Dodgers.

Map shows more than 100 buildings in and near Weed destroyed by Mill Fire

San Jose Mercury - Tue, 09/06/2022 - 21:16

More than 100 buildings in and near Weed were destroyed by the Mill Fire, a newly released map shows.

The map below, from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, shows the status of dozens of homes and outbuildings in the area of the 4,000-acre wildfire that started Friday, Sept. 2. (Click the “accept terms” line on the opening graphic to see the full interactive map.)

Red icons indicate destroyed buildings. Orange, yellow and green are lesser damage, and black indicates no damage.

The first round of assessment shows about 80 buildings — most of them single-family residences — were destroyed in Weed and about three dozen north of the city, most in the community of Lake Shastina.

The map also shows a few icons for the Mountain Fire. It has been burning more actively to the west of Weed, and Cal Fire has not been able to assess most of that territory yet.

More information on the post-fire recovery can be found at the Facebook page of Siskiyou County’s Office of Emergency Services.

Aggressive bullpen moves pay off for Orioles in 9-6 win over Blue Jays; benches clear in 7th

San Jose Mercury - Tue, 09/06/2022 - 20:40

With two on and one out early in the second game of Monday’s doubleheader, Orioles manager Brandon Hyde brought in rookie Nick Vespi over any of his high-leverage relief trio of Dillon Tate, Cionel Pérez and Félix Bautista. Vespi surrendered a three-run home run, while each of the three late-inning options went unused as the Toronto Blue Jays won both of the day’s games to balloon Baltimore’s distance from a playoff spot.

“Obviously, in a game like that,” Hyde explained a day later, “I don’t want to use those three guys in the third inning.”

The fourth inning, though, seemingly changes the calculus. Beginning with calling on Tate in that frame, Hyde deployed his bullpen as aggressively as he has all season in pursuit of a much-needed win Tuesday. With Pérez and Bautista also entering earlier than usual, he got it, with the Orioles beating the Blue Jays, 9-6, to move within 3 1/2 games of an American League wild-card spot and give themselves a chance at a series split Wednesday.

Of the six innings of relief Hyde asked for from his bullpen, the only one provided by someone other than Tate, Pérez or Bautista was Bryan Baker’s seventh. He allowed a run but ended it with a strikeout of Matt Chapman before his jawing with the Toronto dugout caused the benches to clear. Orioles infielders Jorge Mateo and Rougned Odor tried to play peacemakers throughout, with little more than words exchanged between the clubs as Mateo at one point held back Toronto’s Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Teoscar Hernández by their waistbands.

Bautista took over from there, recording the final six outs for the longest save of his nascent career. The Orioles’ lead, which hovered around one run until a late outburst, might not have reached him without Hyde’s aggressiveness.

With the Orioles coming off a five-run frame that alone represented their biggest offensive output against a winning team in two weeks, rookie starter Kyle Bradish allowed the first two batters of the fourth to reach. Tate replaced him, making his earliest appearance of the season, and retired the next three Blue Jays in order to strand the inherited runners.

In their first 111 appearances this season, Tate and Pérez had entered before the sixth inning three times between them, but both did so Tuesday. A pair of doubles off Tate in the fifth prompted Hyde to turn to Pérez, whose fourth out came on a deep drive to center that both he and Guerrero thought were gone before it landed in Cedric Mullins’ glove at the wall.

The catch retained a lead built in the bottom of the third. With the Orioles facing a 3-0 deficit largely thanks to Bo Bichette’s fourth home run in two games, walks to Odor and Mateo preceded Mullins being hit by a pitch. Adley Rutschman smacked a double down the left field line to score two, with Anthony Santander, Ryan Mountcastle and Gunnar Henderson also driving in runs.

Mullins followed Mateo’s two-out triple in the sixth with a single, providing an insurance run that proved vital before the seventh inning’s theatrics. With a steal in the eighth, Mullins reached 30 for the second straight season. The thievery made him and Mateo only the second pair of Orioles teammates to each steal 30 bases in a season, with Brian Roberts and Corey Patterson doing so in both 2006 and 2007. A walk from Rutschman followed and loaded the bases, then another by Santander brought in an insurance run. Mountcastle, who has thrived against Toronto in his career, delivered a two-run single, with a review determining Rutschman slid in safe on a close play at the plate.

Even with the added cushion, Hyde kept his foot on the gas and left Bautista in the game, and although Bichette’s fourth hit led to a late run, he closed out the game with a strikeout of Hernández.

Around the horn
  • Because of inclement weather, the game began after a 17-minute delay. The announced attendance was 8,411, the lowest at Camden Yards since July 6.
  • Before the game, the Orioles exchanged two left-handers unlikely to be available for Tuesday’s matchup for a pair of right-handers relatively new to the organization. Baltimore activated Jake Reed, claimed on waivers from the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday, and recalled Yannier Cano, one of the four pitchers they acquired in last month’s trade with the Minnesota Twins for All-Star closer Jorge López, from Triple-A Norfolk, where they optioned Bruce Zimmermann and Vespi. The Orioles optioned Vespi for a fifth time this year, meaning they will have to expose him to waivers to do so again, per the league’s new collective bargaining agreement.
  • Starting pitcher Jordan Lyles remains sick and away from the team with flu-like symptoms. The Orioles will skip his spot in the rotation in this weekend’s series with the Boston Red Sox and start Austin Voth, Spenser Watkins and Bradish, who will pitch on regular rest thanks to Thursday’s off-day.
  • Top pitching prospect Grayson Rodriguez threw 40 pitches in two innings for Double-A Bowie in his second start since returning from a Grade 2 right lat muscle strain, allowing a run on a hit and two walks while striking out four.
  • Infielder Jonathan Araúz, who was placed on the restricted list Monday because he was away from Triple-A Norfolk, was reinstated Tuesday, then designated for assignment.
  • 2022 draftees Dylan Beavers, Max Wagner and Adam Retzbach were promoted from Low-A Delmarva to High-A Aberdeen.

Mets drop third straight game in loss to Pirates

San Jose Mercury - Tue, 09/06/2022 - 19:35

Fresh off the heels of dropping two in a row to the Nationals, the Mets got off on the wrong foot in the first game against the Pirates.

Outside of a seventh inning two run homer by Brandon Nimmo – when the Mets already trailed 4-0 – the offense appeared lifeless in their 8-2 loss. The Amazin’s put together just seven hits and were 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position against a Pirates team that entered Tuesday night ranking 26th in team ERA.

“It’s a period that catches your attention because they’ve been so good for so long,” said Buck Showalter. “Our guys are frustrated right now but they know they’re capable of better.”

The Mets’ offense has been abysmal as of late. They haven’t scored more than three runs in seven out of their last eight games. In the midst of a division race, the prospect of your offense – who entered Tuesday’s game seventh in MLB in runs scored – is not ideal. Especially with the possibility of waking up in a tie for first place with the Braves having a late night game on the West Coast.

“We’ve done some things that are uncharacteristic in a couple of spots,” Showalter said. “We just haven’t been able to mount much offensively. We’ve been getting some people out there we just haven’t been able to get that big blow.”

Taijuan Walker continued to pile onto his second half woes. The right-hander allowed four runs over just five innings striking out three batters. The big blow being Rodolfo Castro’s two run homer in the bottom of the third. Walker’s ERA is up to 6.25 since the All-Star break.

As previously mentioned, the Pirates are bad. The Buccos ranked 28th in both total runs and team OPS entering Tuesday. However, there may have been some reasoning behind Walker’s struggles in Pittsburgh regardless of his opponent.

“He had a developing blister there,” said Showalter. “I think it really kept it from finishing his pitches. It was pretty ugly. I checked him after the fifth inning and decided not to run him back out there so that hopefully it doesn’t turn into something worse. We’ve had a lot of challenges today.”

“It’s on my index finger,” Walker said. “Right where my splitter comes off. Definitely not making any excuses, I had the slider that I left up for the homer. For the most part, I got ground balls and got some weak contact.”

Buck Showalter called on Bryce Montes de Oca in a 4-2 game in the bottom of the seventh, who was charged three runs on three hits in his short work. Tommy Hunter came in to put the icing on the cake in the bottom of the eight serving up a solo homer to highly touted Pirates’ shortstop O’Neil Cruz, which all but ensured the Pirates would take the first game of this series by a score of 8-2.


Starling Marte was hit by a pitch on his hand in the top of the first inning. Marte remained the game initially, however, he was replaced by Tyler Naquin in the bottom of the second.

“We dodged things like this all year,” said Showalter. “That one stung him pretty good and he had trouble gripping the baseball. So we hope we get lucky again, we hope we can get something [X-ray results] tomorrow. So far so good but we’ll see.”

SF Giants get Joey Bart back from concussion IL; why Andrew Knapp was DFA’d

San Jose Mercury - Tue, 09/06/2022 - 18:50

LOS ANGELES — A week after suffering a concussion on a foul tip off his face mask, catcher Joey Bart returned to the Giants’ lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers.

“It’s really nice to have Joey back in the lineup,” said manager Gabe Kapler, who penciled Bart in seventh against Los Angeles lefty Tyler Anderson. “Hopefully he’s able to keep that good momentum that he had before he went on the concussion IL. He was doing a great job for us.”

Bart, 25, had been experiencing a resurgence at the plate after returning from Triple-A with a reworked swing — batting .283 with an .808 OPS in 38 games back — but that was interrupted last Monday by a foul tip off the bat of Manny Machado.

To clear room on the roster to add Bart, the Giants designated Andrew Knapp for assignment. Along with Austin Wynns, Knapp had been sharing the catching duties in Bart’s absence.

Kapler, who previously managed Knapp in Philadelphia, said it was a “very difficult decision and not the easiest discussion.”

“It’s a nice opportunity to share that the work that Wynns and Knapp did was commendable,” Kapler said. “Andrew knows how much I pull for him personally, and there’s a lot of people in the organization that are feeling the same. … I think a lot of it has to do with Wynns has just performed well for us. He’s framed well. He’s led our pitching staff well. He knows our staff. And he’s had good at-bats for us. Not perfect, but he’s done a good job and earned the right to stay on our roster.”

Brebbia, the opener: For the 11th time this season, the Giants employed a bullpen game to cover the nine innings against the Dodgers on Tuesday, which would have been Alex Wood’s turn in the rotation.

Wood (shoulder impingement) was placed on the injured list last week, so instead they turned to John Brebbia to serve as the opener of a long line of relievers. Of the 11 bullpen games, Brebbia has started four of them.

“We know that Brebbia has been a high-leverage, important reliever for us,” Kapler said. “The first inning is a pretty important one to set the tone for the game. … The toughest portion of the lineup, obviously, is the top for most clubs but certainly for the Dodgers.”

In 10 previous bullpen games, the Giants have gone 5-5.

Related Articles

The start was Brebbia’s 64th appearance of the season, more than any other reliever in the majors.

The bullpen game is only the first of the challenges facing the Giants pitching staff this week.

What was originally scheduled to be an off day in Chicago on Thursday was turned into a double-header in Milwaukee to make up the final two games lost to the lockout to begin the season.

The Brewers announced that Corbin Burnes would start Game 1, but the Giants haven’t made any pitching plans yet.

“There’s a thousand possibilities,” Kapler said. “We’ll see where our pitching is at at the end of the day. … Very challenging. There’s a lot of innings to cover. We’ve got a lot of work to do and a lot of innings to cover.”

SF Giants Austin Slater reflects on his experience in KNBR broadcast booth

San Jose Mercury - Tue, 09/06/2022 - 18:32

LOS ANGELES — Injured? On the road? Nothing better to do? Why not hop in the broadcast booth?

That, essentially, is how Giants outfielder Austin Slater ended up providing color commentary on KNBR alongside play-by-play man Dave Flemming for nearly the entirety of Monday night’s 7-4 win over the Dodgers.

“It was a lot of fun,” Slater said Tuesday, reflecting on the experience. “I’m glad I stuck with it for a little while. I felt like I got into a rhythm after the first couple innings.”

“I thought it was great,” said Gabe Kapler, who was busy managing the game and didn’t get a chance to tune in but heard the positive feedback. “I wouldn’t have expected it, honestly. He’s smart, so that’s helpful. …  I think it’s nice that he had a good experience and great that he was able to do it with Dave because Dave is a star.”

About 45 minutes before first pitch, Giants traveling secretary Abe Silvestri was racing to find Slater to tell him that Kapler had signed off on him heading upstairs for a night. Slater, who was placed on the injured list earlier that day after receiving a second opinion on his dislocated pinky finger, was already in street clothes and would have watched the game from the clubhouse televisions, anyway.

Although he grew up watching Atlanta Braves games on TBS and tuned in to Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow calling Giants games while he was a student at Stanford, the microphone had never called to Slater.

“I was like, ‘Sure, I guess I’ll do it,'” Slater said.

The experience taught the athlete what it’s like on the other side of the camera.

First of all, those elevators and escalators up to the press box on the third level of Dodger Stadium get packed.

“I actually ended up walking all the way up to the third deck,” Slater said. “I probably asked like three people where it was.”

Slater said the three-hour, three-minute contest “flew by,” but he should know that’s not always the case up here.

Little did he know, we’re exposed to the elements (natural and man-made), too.

“It was just really hot in that room,” Slater said. “No A/C, crazy loud, too. Those speakers are just blaring straight in.”

Although he was a rookie in the radio booth, Slater understood rule No. 1: no stepping on home run calls. And his teammates gave him plenty of chances.

“Gotta know when to talk, when to shut up. Those aren’t my calls,” Slater said. “I might’ve been saying something in the background, like, ‘Let’s go!’”

Related Articles

Whether Slater has a future behind the microphone is a question that he and the rest of the Giants ope is a long ways down the road. For now, though, that was it for Slater on the radio: he’s on his way back to San Francisco, where he’ll continue to rehab his injured finger.

“Austin should not be thinking about transitioning,” Kapler said.

“Hopefully I can stick with this job for a little while,” Slater said.

As for other candidates, if Slater wasn’t the most natural option to Kapler?

“I think (John) Brebbia could light up the screen and make things really funny,” said Kapler, who briefly served as a color analyst between his playing and coaching career. “Funny’s good. And he’s smart, knows baseball well.”
