Hit a home run off the bench, get a start the next day. It should be a golden rule in baseball, and Giants manager Bruce Bochy is abiding by it Saturday.
The next day, Bochy is rewarding Yastrzemski with a start in left field. Yastrzemski, 28, is batting .228 with two home runs in 17 games for the Giants this season.
On the hill, the Giants are sending out their ace. Madison Bumgarner is looking for his first win in nearly a month as he faces the Brewers for the first time this season. The left-hander is 3-6 with a 3.83 ERA this season.
First pitch for Brewers vs. Giants is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. PT with pregame coverage beginning at noon. You can follow all the action on NBC Sports Bay Area and streaming online and on the MyTeams app.
