The San Francisco Giants picked up their first series win of 2019 over the weekend when they took two of three from the Colorado Rockies. We’ve honed in on the three biggest takeaways from the series.

After a 4-9 start that included four straight series losses, the San Francisco Giants finally claimed their first series win of the new season by taking three of four from the Colorado Rockies.

That included a 1-0 pitcher’s duel on Thursday, an 18-inning thriller on Friday and a complete disappearing act offensively on Sunday.

While they were unable to complete the series sweep, it’s undoubtedly a step forward for a team that had been struggling to turn the occasional positive moment into wins.

The team will now look to turn things around away from Oracle Park when they head out for an eight-game road trip. They’re just 2-5 with a minus-seven run differential on the road so far this season.

As the season progresses, we’re going to put a bow on each series by highlighting the three biggest takeaways for the Giants.

Some will be positive and focus on reasons for optimism. Others will be negative and highlight problem areas and troubling trends.

Without further ado, let’s dive into the team’s 1-2 showing against the Padres.
