Mike Yastrzemski hit a three-run homer, one of four homers by our guys, and the Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 7-2 Friday night to become the season’s first team with 100 wins.
Rookie Kervin Castro (1-0) opened and went two innings for his first major league victory. The Giants reached 100 wins for the first time since going 100-62 in 2003.
Tommy La Stella, Crawford and Brandon Belt had solo home runs to give San Francisco a 3-2 lead after six. La Stella and Crawford had three hits each and Belt finished with two.
In the seventh, Yastrzemski followed singles by Brandon Crawford and Evan Longoria with his 25th homer. San Francisco blew it open in the seventh as they added another run on a Buster Posey RBI single.
The Giants now have 234 home runs, one fewer than the club record set in 2001 when Barry Bonds hit 73. The Giants lead the NL in homers and are second in the majors to Toronto’s 241.
In 2021, the San Francisco Giants were the first to 40, 50 and 60 wins
and are first to 100 wins.
WOW! What a year!
