Before the big event of the night — the MLB Draft — we get a pair of baseball games to whet our appetite.
First it’s the Futures Game, which features the San Francisco Giants No. 1 prospect (Low-A shortstop Marco Luciano) and No. 3 prospect (AA center fielder Heliot Ramos). Then, just over an hour into that game, it’s the series finale between the Giants and the Washington Nationals — and the Giants final game before the All-Star break.
This will serve as the gamethread for both of those games, and then we’ll have a separate gamethread for the draft.
Who: San Francisco Giants (56-32) vs. Washington Nationals (42-46)
Where: Oracle Park, San Francisco, California
When: 1:05 p.m. PT
Regional broadcast: NBC Sports Bay Area (available on fuboTV)
National broadcast: None
Radio: KNBR 680 AM/104.5 FM
Final first half lineup for the Giants. May the second half lineups bring better health.
And here’s what the Nats will try to avoid the sweep with.
Enjoy the baseball, friends. There sure is a lot of it.
