SF Giants: 4 Best Moments from the first half of the season
Moment #2: Luis Gonzalez's First Career Home Run
At this point early in the season when Luis Gonzalez hit a clutch home run, the first of his career, to beat the Brewers, it seemed like the Giants were picking up right where they left off in 2021.
A guy who seemingly came out of nowhere was making a huge contribution right away to help the Giants win. It was a pretty spectacular moment, and it eclipsed another home run from the game that was also really memorable for the Giants.
That one came when Joc Pederson hit one out after getting taunted by a Brewers fan. There has just been something about the Giants hitting memorable home runs against the Brewers in this first half of the season.
Gonzalez and Pederson have been two of the key contributors for the Giants in the first half. If they want to make a postseason run, they will need both guys to continue that success in the second half.
