Giants Manhandle Astros 8 – 6 in Wrestling Match of Best Records in Both Leagues, LaMonte Wade, Jr., Splash Hits for Mom

Epic game.

Jay Jackson got the win.

We fought back against a ludicrous strike zone and Zack Greinke and hit five home runs. Brandon Crawford hit a tiebreaking single in the sixth inning. 156 Home Runs leads the National League. The AL East Toronto Blue Jays have 157.

This was a crazy game. as per ESPN:

“Aledmys Díaz homered twice on his 31st birthday for the Astros.

After Flores connected for a two-run homer in the third, Wade homered into McCovey Cove in the fourth. The ball sailed over his mother, who was standing on the walkway behind the seats in right field when the ball went out. It was the first game this season that Wade’s parents attended.

“I thought that was pretty cool,” Wade said. “It just so happened that she was there at the right time. She can’t sit still and wants to walk around.”

Ruf homered in the fifth. Yastrzemski hit his 17th home run in the eighth.”

BIRTHDAY KAPLER and KRIS BRYANT

Giants manager Gabe Kapler turned 46 and was given a cake in the shape of a steak during a postgame party in the clubhouse. “It had candles and it had a big tomahawk ribeye shape with a little pat of butter on it and then a potato, which was total out of place because these guys know I won’t eat that,” Kapler said.

Kapler also expects four-time All-Star Kris Bryant to be in the lineup tomorrow.
