Four-game sweeps are not common, but they are awesome. And the San Francisco Giants have a chance to earn one this morning, on the road no less. With a win over the Cincinnati Reds, the Giants would sweep the series, and finish 6-2 on their road trip.

They would also carry a minimum of a two-game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers into their series on Friday.

Notes

YouTube: The game is on YouTube. It is free, but it is on YouTube. I do not believe that it is on NBC Sports Bay Area, though perhaps it will still be on MLB.tv if you are out of market.


Enjoy the baseball, friends.
