MLB: Tie record! Donovan Solano hits a very special historic HR for him and the Giants

Sunday’s was the Colombian’s first homer as a pinch-hitter Donovan Solano in his career and the 14th of the year for San Francisco Giants, tying the franchise record previously established in 1974 and tied in 2001.

San Francisco leads the majors in home runs as a pinch-hitter this year (14), a sign of the team’s depth and ability to play matchups and take advantage of the peloton – bench – at the end of games. Solano said in Spanish:

I’ve never faced that pitcher before. I know he has a good fastball and slider. I was looking for a fastball, something close to my body. That was the plan and luckily I was able to swing well. “

For his part, the manager, Gabe Kapler, said that his players are always prepared to come to bat at zero hour:

Our guys are ready for those moments. They know what they are looking for. They know what to do. “

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.
