Heliot Ramos hits the second home run of the season in the Giants’ victory

Pittsburgh- Paul Skenes allowed one run in six excellent innings, but the San Francisco Giants rallied against the Pittsburgh Pirates bullpen for a 7-6 victory on Thursday.

Matt Chapman hit a three-run homer off Hunter Stratton (1-1) in the eighth and Brett Wisely brought in the decisive run with a single off Aroldis Chapman five batters later. The Giants overturned a large deficit for the second time in less than 24 hours.

San Francisco trailed 6-2 after seven and the Pirates seemed poised for Skenes to win his second straight start.

But the Giants reacted again. Puerto Rican Heliot Ramos hit a home run in the seventh inning, his second of the campaign.

The comeback followed another great start from Skenes, the 21-year-old rookie. The right-hander struck out three in his third start, but managed to get out of several jams. He allowed six hits – all singles – and one walk to lower his ERA to 2.25.

For the Giants, Venezuelans Luis Matos 5-1 and Thairo Estrada 4-1, two scored. Puerto Rican Ramos 2-for-4, one run scored and one RBI.
