Whoever wins tonight’s game between the San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies will win the series. Whoever loses the game will lose the series.

There’s a pretty big difference between winning a series and losing a series.

Notes

Roster moves: In case you missed the news earlier, the Giants added Mike Tauchman to the roster (as evidenced by, you know ... his presence in the lineup), and optioned right-handed reliever Gregory Santos. They then placed Mike Yastrzemski on the 10-day IL, and called up left-handed reliever Sam Selman.

Longo: Evan Longoria is in the starting lineup, so hopefully that means his hamstring is feeling better. Hopefully he can run.


Enjoy the baseball, friends.
