MLB: Almost there! Giants about to tie 20-year HR record

Veteran left-handed hitters Tommy La Stella, Brandon Crawford, Brandon Belt and Mike Yastrzemski they all struggled tonight each to hit a home run, which gives the San Francisco Giants a total of 234 home runs for the year, leaving them one to equal the franchise record for a season set in 2001.

This Friday against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver, marked the Giants’ 17th game of at least four home runs this season, the most in the majors:

The Stella, Crawford and Belt hit solo HRs to give the Giants a 3-2 lead before Yastrzemski opened the game with a three-run flurry in the top of the seventh inning.

The Stella kicked off the laser show with her fifth career leadoff homer, while Crawford (22), Belt (27) and Yastrzemski (25) continued to hit career highs.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. BA in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
