SAN FRANCISCO – This is the biggest regular season in the history of the Giants, so it’s only fair that every game has meaning.
And boy, the regular season ends – Game Number 162 – stuff.
Or is it the end of the regular season?
The Giants may have the best record in baseball, but they weigh in at the end of the regular Sunday season. Defeat the Pedres and win the National League West, take a break next week, and open the division series at home on Friday, with the advantage of the home field throughout the playoffs.
Sunday’s defeat – and another Los Angeles Dodgers win – will bring an extra regular season game, No. 163, between the two rivals on Monday.
Yes, all the winning games at Oracle Park for the split between the two teams, the Giants and the Dodgers, who will share the best baseball record at the end of the season.
The winner claims a penny. The loser hosts a wild card game.
Yes, this kind of competition on Monday will be a spectacle for ages, they want to avoid giants.
The good news for the giants is that they have the best pitcher on the mound to start the game and behind it is the complete completion of the balpan arms.
Logan Webb posted 2.52 ERA in its last 15 with 1.02 WHIP. He has not lost a game since May 5. He has the opportunity to make that statement on Sunday in the biggest game of the year.
“100% confidence,” Giants Kepler, the giants’ manager, said Saturday. “It’s been an incredible year – especially in the last three or four months.
The Giants will also have Tyler Rogers – who is in charge of their season – available to them from Belpin after the weekend. Dominic Lyon will also be able to pitch in relief.
Pedres will do the giants a favor – presumably, at least – by starting a race against the web. Knehr – whose name is pronounced like actor Greg Kneyers – is a 24-year-old shopkeeper who has played as many batsmen in 11 matches this season.
There is an opportunity for San Francisco. The crown of the division will also be well earned.
Will they take it?
All games will be played together on Sunday, to avoid any last-day Shenyang. The Giants and Dodgers will begin their competition in the afternoon in San Francisco and Los Angeles, respectively.
