Johnston Hits 3 home runs in Giants Win
The 2025 season is getting ugly for St. Louis.

The San Francisco Giants trumped the St. Louis Cardinals, 6-3, at Busch Stadium. San Francisco left fielder J.R. Johnston was named player of the game for his performance. He belted 3 home runs. He drove in 4 runs and scored three times. Eric Edwards was the winning pitcher. Over 6.1 innings, he allowed 2 runs on 5 hits, with 2 walks and 6 strikeouts. Munenori Shinoda earned the save for San Francisco, his 14th.

Johnston had a big at-bat with the bases empty in the top of the third inning, when he hit a solo home run. The Giants went on to win.

"It feels good to get this one," Johnston told the San Francisco Chronicle.

San Francisco leads the National League Western Division by 4 games.
