NEW YORK — Giants Gold Glove shortstop Brandon Crawford made three errors for the first time in his career, with his wild throw in the eighth inning giving the Yankees a 3-2 win Friday night that sent San Francisco to its season-worst sixth straight loss.
The Giants held the best record in the majors at the All-Star break, but haven't won since. They lost catcher Buster Posey, who fouled a ball off his right foot and left with a bruise. He was listed as day to day.
Masahiro Tanaka shut out San Francisco for six innings, giving up four singles. Giants ace Madison Bumgarner gave up two runs in seven innings.
Tied at 2, Chase Headley opened the eighth with a single and Mark Teixeira walked. Austin Romine hit a grounder to Crawford, who tagged second, spun and made a hard, high throw that glanced off the glove of first baseman Brandon Belt. Headley beat Belt's throw home.
"Just kind of three kind of weird plays, all different kind of throws that happened to get away from me," Crawford said of his errors.
