All Bay, All Day
This year, just like last year, there figures to be one team standing head shoulders above the rest of the NL East: the Nationals.
San Francisco's road to recovery from 98 losses back into postseason contention is a hazardous one.
Los Angeles overcame Oakland's three-homer fifth-inning to seize an 8-7, 10-inning victory.
The first half San Francisco didn't want to see any more kept going for two extra innings.
Giancarlo Stanton handed Matt Moore his loss just two at-bats into the Miami Marlins's 6-1 win Friday night.
Sonny Gray continued his 2017 search for his 2015 self Wednesday. And, in what was his most dominant start in nearly two full years, he gave the Oakland crowd more than a mere glimpse at his Cy Young-type form.
The National League East is not viewed as a powerhouse division. But with teams of the caliber of the Washington Nationals and New York Mets how could that be?
When it comes to home runs, 61 is a magic number. Monday night at Petco Park, it was Giancarlo Stanton making the magic.
