MLB: Giants, first club to have 90 wins and sweep Rockies home this year

The San Francisco Giants became the first team to sweep the Colorado Rockies at home this season and the first club to reach 90 wins this year. With a 90-50 mark, the Giants went to a season-high 40 games over .500 for the first time since Sept. 7, 1993, 28 years ago.

Wednesday’s comeback proved particularly brave for the Giants, considering they were at the end of a 16-game ‘punishment’ streak without a day off:

The Giants will head to Chicago with unresolved pitching plans as they plan to use a bullpen game on Friday to help fill the void in their rotation left by injured starters Alex Wood (COVID-19) and right-hander Johnny Cueto. (right elbow).

Right-hander Kevin Gausman will start Saturday, and San Francisco is leaning toward using another bullpen game Sunday rather than promoting Logan Webb. Veteran left-hander Scott Kazmir, who is back with Triple-A Sacramento after helping Team USA capture a silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics, will be in the mix to start the final game.

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. Bachelor of 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 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.
