BC-BBN-Nationals-Giants, 1st Ld-Writethru, 865Williamson 2-run homer highlights Giants' 4-2 win over NatsAP Photo FXPB107, FXPB115, FXPB113, FXPB112, FXPB114, FXPB108, FXPB111, FXPB110, FXPB109, FXPB105, FXPB104, FXPB106, FXPB102, FXPB101Eds: Updates with new lede. Roark shut down NY, allowing just two runs on two hits, while striking out six batters in seven innings of work.

But the big blow came from Williamson, who spent the offseason altering his approach at the plate. They're batting.171 (27-for-158) in those situations."That's what the long ball does for you", Bochy said.

The San Francisco Giants will look to finish off the sweep and push their winning streak to four after their win in game two on Tuesday.

Nevertheless, Williamson's latest homer traveled a projected 423 feet to dead center field, according to Statcast™, slicing through breezes and potential crosswinds."I think you're looking at a guy with plus-plus power", Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "With the wind blowing, that's impressive". "Just shows you how strong this guy is". The visit occurred after a two-out walk to Michael Taylor, but Samardzija remained in the game and surrendered the two-run double to Stevenson before striking out Adrian Sanchez to end a 30-pitch first inning.

"It's a long ways out there".

"I got pretty lucky", Williamson said. I was just a little frustrated I didn't come up with the play.

"It's another day in the life of my elbow", Kelley said.

But Williamson, who batted.226 with nine homers in brief stints with the Giants the past three seasons, isn't getting carried away with the success he's had after 15 at-bats. Earlier Monday, Williamson drove in his team's initial run on a fielder's choice in the fourth.

"That was crushed, man", Stratton said. "It's nice to see him come up and do well for us".

Roark went into the game 6-0 in seven career games against San Francisco but couldn't find a rhythm this time. Both offenses are struggling right now and the Giants have ranked among the MLBs worst offenses through the first month of the season.

The Nationals totaled just eight runs during their skid.

Seeking a fourth consecutive win, the Giants countered a three-run Nationals first inning with a run in the second on back-to-back doubles by Brandon Crawford and Nick Hundley.

Not that Mac Williamson alone could have saved his mates from Wednesday's 15-2 beatdown by Washington, which ended their streak at three victories. A Matt Adams single scored Difo, giving the Nationals a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Yankees 7, Twins 4 • Didi Gregorius homered for the fourth straight game, sending NY past visiting Minnesota for a fifth consecutive victory. Stratton only made one start against the Nationals in 2017 (1-0, 0.00 ERA and 10 strikeouts across six and 2-third innings).

This will be his first start against the Washington Nationals.

Nats pitcher Stephen Strasburg hustled out to give Baker a big hug behind the batting cage. "As you have success, they're going to adjust to what you're doing and you're going to have to adjust back to what they're doing".

Baker also visited with third base coach Bob Henley, the loan holdover from his coaching staff. "He definitely got it good".

SAN FRANCISCO - Mac Williamson isn't indestructible. "We've got to get more consistent and put runs up there".
