The Giants were the first to 40-, 50-, 60-, 70-, and now 80-wins this season as they won the Bay Bridge Series four games to two, closing out the Athletics with a comeback home run in the 8th inning of the rubber match – exactly as they did in the game a night before.
Let me clarify: The San Francisco Giants homered in the 8th inning to take the lead and win in two consecutive games and that has never happened before in major league baseball history.
Pitching wins pennants and the Giants staff beat the A’s with grit and resolve. Victories were delivered by LeMonte Wade, Jr., and Donovan Solano on home runs in the 8th inning of each game, and the closers held. Jake McGee was awesome tonight. After giving up a double to Josh Harrison, he shut the A’s down. Giants 2, A’s 1.
Game Two – Giants 6, A’s 5.
Game One – Giants 1, A’s 4.
