SF Giants: 4 Best Moments from the first half of the season
Moment #3: Carlos Rodon's Complete Game
There was a time in baseball when complete games were not a huge deal. In 2022, they are a rarity. that is why Carlos Rodon's complete game against the San Diego Padres was so huge.
This was in the middle of the Giants struggles during the first half. They had dropped the first two games of a four game series versus the Padres and were in need of a strong outing from their co-ace during the first half.
Carlos Rodon delivered, allowing only one run on three hits while recording 12 strikeouts total. It was a clutch performance when the Giants needed it most against a division foe.
Rodon was excellent for the Giants in the first half which earned him, eventually, the All-Star nod that he deserved. The Giants will need both Rodon and Logan Webb to continue their ace-like ways if they are to compete in the second half.
