Juan Soto hits a home run in the first inning

Juan Soto hit two home runs, including one that gave the Yankees the lead in the ninth inning, as they came from behind to beat the San Francisco Giants 7-5 on Sunday.

Giants pitcher Blake Snell, who has won the Cy Young Award twice, left the game in the fifth inning due to a tight left groin. He will have an MRI on Monday and is likely heading to the injured list for the second time this season, according to manager Bob Melvin.

Anthony Volpe hit an RBI triple, and Giancarlo Stanton drove in a run with a ground-rule double in the ninth inning against Giants closer Camilo Doval.

Aaron Judge had two singles, extending his on-base streak to 29 games, as the Yankees, who lead the AL East, won their fifth straight game and completed a successful 7-2 trip to three cities in California with a three-game sweep at Oracle Park.

“We’ve been playing great baseball,” said Soto. “Really happy to come over here and keep doing what we’ve been doing since day one.”

Soto hit a home run off Snell in the first inning and then reached base on a bunt single and scored in the fifth inning.

Curt Casali hits the ball in the sixth inning

The Yankees were trailing 5-3 in the ninth inning before Gleyber Torres started the rally with a leadoff single. Yankees catcher Jose Trevino grounded into a fielder’s choice but beat out a potential double play, and Volpe hit a line drive into the gap in right-center field to drive in Trevino.

Soto then hit his 17th home run to give the Yankees a 6-5 lead, sparking excitement among the fans wearing Yankees gear in the crowd.

Soto celebrated by flipping his bat high in the air, pounding his chest, and shouting towards the Yankees’ dugout. The Yankees have now hit a home run in 12 consecutive games, a season-high.

“I just tried to get something and tried to drive it to the outfield,” Soto said. “It takes every little thing to put an inning like that together against a closer of his caliber.”

Judge walked, stole second base, and advanced to third on a throwing error by Giants catcher Curt Casali before scoring on Stanton’s double to deep right-center field.

Despite the loss, Melvin expressed confidence in Doval, saying, “I felt good with Doval. I’ll take him against anybody. It’s just, they got him today.”
