NEW YORK (AP) – Bruce Bochy has joined John McGraw as the only Giants managers to win 1,000 regular-season games. It happened Tuesday when San Francisco beat the New York Mets 9-3 behind Stephen Vogt’s tiebreaking, two-run double in the 10th inning. On a night that began as a rematch between the Giants’ Madison Bumgarner and Noah Syndergaard of their duel in the 2016 NL wild-card game, New York rallied from a 2-0 deficit to take a sixth-inning lead only for its bullpen to falter again.
SEATTLE (AP) – Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said he does not expect teams to make changes to the protective netting around ballparks during the season, although he expects conversations to continue about whether netting should be extended. Manfred’s comments came less than a week after a young child was struck by a foul ball and hospitalized in Houston. Manfred said structural issues in each individual stadium would make it difficult to mandate changes during the season.
