The Giants came out for this must-win 162nd game with their best foot forward: Logan Webb on the mound. He didn’t disappoint. Rather, he delivered an unflappable, dominant performance – eight K’s over seven innings – and at the plate, where Webb hit his first home run, scoring two. Giants bats that had been quiet yesterday, exploded to life to provide fans with a resounding smackdown of the Padres to win the National League West. Giants 11, Padres 4.
The Dodgers easily handled the Brewers and were ahead early, keeping the pressure on the Giants, who left Webb out there until the eighth and ran into trouble, but ultimately, it didn’t matter. The Giants were in command of this game and the 2021 season throughout. We led for most of the year, had the best record in all of baseball for most of the year, and led the league in home runs for most of the year.
It’s staggering and hard to believe. Many Giants records fell: most wins, most home runs, most guys with a home run, most guys with ten home runs, and most pitchers used, were just a few I can think of off-hand. It was the greatest season of Giants baseball I have ever witnessed.
The stylish, this cap I bought back in July, at my first game back after coronavirus restrictions were lifted, brought home yet another win to go (21 – 6) on the year.
This cap will forever be associated with the 2021 season. I bought it at the yard after a win against the Nats the last weekend of the first half of the season. It was my rally cap during five LaMonte Wade, Jr., game-winners.
Let’s Go Giants!
Eleven More Wins!
Let’s win it all!
