Matt Chapman stayed hot at the plate with a three-run home run in the eighth inning, rallying the Giants to another come-from-behind victory as San Francisco beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-6 on Thursday at PNC Park. Heliot Ramos also went deep for San Francisco, helping offset a big day by former Giants prospect Joey Bart.

One day after overcoming a five-run deficit and winning in extra innings, manager Bob Melvin’s ballclub pulled off another memorable comeback. Unable to muster much offense for most of the game, the Giants (25-26) batted around and put up five runs in the eighth inning to erase a 6-2 deficit. Chapman, who also made a handful of strong defensive plays, delivered the big blow with his eighth home run of the season and third in three days. After Jorge Soler followed Chapman’s smash with a double, Wilmer Flores tied the game with a pinch-hit single down the right field line.
