No. 2 Lowlight: The New York Yankees series

At the beginning of the season, San Francisco Giants fans were no doubt excited about the prospect of a series against the New York Yankees at Oracle Park.

What a disaster that turned out to be.

The Giants were essentially run out of their own ballpark by the Bronx Bombers during the three-game set at the end of April, as they were outscored 24-12.

What could have been a memorable moment, ended up being one of the more forgettable parts of the first half.

No. 2 Highlight: The Giants play against the Los Angeles Dodgers

They may not be leading the season series against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers, but the Giants have played them tough in every game.

The Dodgers currently hold a 5-8 advantage with six more head-to-head meetings to come, including a three-game series at Oracle Park to close out the regular season.

Regardless of how both teams are playing at the time, the intensity always seems to be turned up for each Giants vs. Dodgers series.

It’s a longshot, but if the Giants can go 5-1 in the remaining games, they still have a chance to take the season series.
