Notes

No Brandons: Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford are out of the lineup due to minor ailments for very different things.

Vaccine threshold: As of today, the Giants have met the 85% vaccination threshold that will allow them to loosen restrictions. So if you hear the sound of pool balls in the clubhouse or see even fewer masks in the dugout, that’s why.


Enjoy the baseball, friends.
