The San Francisco Giants have won four games in a row. Prior to this winning streak, they hadn’t won more than two in a row all year.

I vote they make it five in a row.

Lineups

As much as we all want to watch Joey Bart nonstop, he’s getting a well-deserved off day. Due to the lack of real games at the Alternate Training Site, it makes sense that a debuting player is going to need some time to get into condition to catch full games five or six days a week. And with Wilmer Flores’ bat hotter than hot, it’s harder to find a place for Bart as a designated hitter.

  1. RF — Mike Yastrzemski (L) — .320/.435/.650 — 197 OPS+
  2. LF — Alex Dickerson (L) — .215/.297/.354 — 81 OPS+
  3. 2B — Donovan Solano (R) — .375/.411/.511 — 155 OPS+

  6. DH — Wilmer Flores (R) — .333/.365/.589 — 159 OPS+
  7. SS — Brandon Crawford (L) — .250/.321/.382 — 95 OPS+

Notes

Slater hits the IL: Austin Slater has been scorching hot as of late, but unfortunately is headed to the Injured List with a groin strain. He’s replaced by Steven Duggar, who jumps straight into the lineup. It’s Duggar’s third call-up of the season.


Enjoy the baseball, friends.
