Hey, the San Francisco Giants won a series opener for the first time all year, which means they’re in prime position to win a series for the first time all year.

A solid idea, I say.

Notes

Brotherly love: For the first time in their professional careers, brothers Tyler and Scott Heineman will play in the same MLB game. They also met with umpires prior to the start of the game, in place of the standard manager meeting.


Enjoy the baseball, folks.
