Jean Machi was the star for the Giants tonight, pitching not only two scoreless innings in the 11th and 12th innings but also laying down the perfect bunt on the third baseline, then beating out the throw. He even stole a base which was unfortunately recorded as a defensive indifference. Jean Machi is now leading the Giants in wins with a record of 5-0.

People on Twitter were going crazy after Machi laid down the bunt, posting hilarious photos and videos.

After the Dodgers loss tonight, the Giants are up by three games in first place.
