I needed to see some baseball today.
It seems like the SF Giants are always gone on three day holiday weekends and frankly at this time of the year, I would rather see our Baby Giants dominate than watch our Papa Giants lose. It’s promising to see these players in the farm system doing so well. In a few years, they’ll be up in the majors, just another face on the wall at Municipal Stadium.
The San Jose Giants are 82-56 this season and are sitting in first place above four other teams. The San Francisco Giants are sitting in last place 60-75 below the four other teams. I would argue that it’s much more interesting seeing the SJ Giants these days.
The SJ Giants won 13 of their last 15 games and secured a 5-3 victory over the Inland Empire 66ers (Angels A team). It was Italian heritage night and pretty fun. Here’s a short photo recap:
Ricky Oropesa (1B, .307 BA) asking for his Italian cap on Saturday night:
Mac Williams (RF, .295 BA) was amazing tonight. He’s been an incredible offensive threat for the SJ Giants all season.
Miles Schroeder sliding into third base on a triple in the bottom of the fifth inning.
Matt Duffy (SS, .293 BA) ready to steal third base in the bottom of the fifth inning.
For stat lovers and pure facts, here is some info from the SJ Giants site:
Myles Schroder (2-for-4, 3B, HR, 2 RBI) tripled and hit a two-run home run to lead the Giants offensive attack. Ryan Cavan (2-for-3) added two hits for San Jose while Matt Duffy (1-for-3, 2B, 2 RBI) drove home a pair of runs.
HR SJ: Schroder (6)
