With the Giants trailing by five in the top of the seventh, Yastrzemski went over the wall in deep center to rob Turner of a blast. Giants outfielders said during summer camp that they envisioned more robberies, with the wall being brought in and also lowered from eight to seven feet.
Yastrzemski became the first to take advantage this season:

The good vibes would be short-lived. Yastrzemski nearly followed that with a sliding catch on Cody Bellinger, but the ball ticked off his glove. A.J. Pollock hit a two-run homer to left a few minutes later, giving the Dodgers the final runs of a 7-0 win.
As he does with everything, Yastrzemski played it cool.
This so much reminds me of how Carl Yaz would make a great catch up against the wall at Fenway and flip it back in like it was nothing. https://t.co/J1oQdZbCfY— Pete Abraham (@PeteAbe) August 27, 2020
Apparently that runs in the family.
