Notes

Sánchez returns home: Yolmer Sanchez has caught on with the Chicago White Sox, the team he had spent his entire career with before signing with the Giants in the offseason.

Gabe Kapler speaks about Jacob Blake: Yet another senseless shooting of a Black man in America caused manager Gabe Kapler to speak up.


Enjoy the baseball, friends. Beat LA.
