Whew. Huge win. tense, taut, one run game – because Austin Slater hit home run number 200 for the Giants in the first. It was also Slater’s tenth big fly, giving the Giants ten players with 10+ homers. That has never happened in a season before.
Brew crew tied it 1-1 in the 4th and it stayed that way until the 8th.
Logan Webb was brilliant for seven. As was Eric Lauer for the Brewers. This was a pitching duel and their bullpen blinked.
Kris Bryant replay review was big. Thairo Estrada, embodying the season-long philosophy of next-man-up, hit a three-run homer to add insurance. No. 201.
Giants 5, Brewers 1
Giants 85 – 49
Dodgers 85 – 49
Season series tied 8-8.
Three games left to play, this weekend in San Francisco.

Let’s Go Giants!
