MLB: Giants, the first club with 80 wins this season

The victory number 80 of the year of the San Francisco Giants (the first to reach that figure) in the majors, extending his lead by the first place in the West Division of the National League two and a half games over the Dodgers, whose nine-game winning streak came to an end Sunday. The Giants beat Sunday 2-1 a Oakland Athletics.

The Giants were limited to two hits in seven innings by Athletics right-hander Frankie Montas, but their offense came to life when manager Gabe Kapler began to deploy the club’s right-handed bench bats against AJ Puk in the eighth:

The Athletics threatened to put runners on second and third with two outs in the bottom of the eighth, but Tyler Rogers inducted a groundout from Matt Olson to end the inning. Jake McGee then worked around a one-out double by Josh Harrison to score a scoreless ninth.

Logan Webb pitched six innings of a career to reduce his ERA to 1.63 in his last 12 starts. The 24-year-old right-hander relied on his sinker-slider combination to scatter five hits and strike out seven, taking one more step to establish himself as a reliable front-line starter for San Francisco.

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.
