The Giants are gearing up for another playoff push. But should they use this off season as an opportunity to retool and try and put together a third championship team for this decade?
It is a no nostalgia and forward thinking episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Drew Smyly threw a complete game 2 hit shutout, walking none as the Rays blanked the Blue Jays, 8-0.
Mike Minor threw a no hitter until he had 2 outs in the 8th inning. He allowed a single that tied the game. He got no decision for his 7 2/3 innings of 1 hit, 4 walk pitching but the Braves beat the Reds in 12 innings, 3-1.
Eduardo Escobar led a wild Twins offense by going 5-6, tripling, homering, scoring 3 and driving in 2 as Minnesota crushed the Tigers 20-6.
Josh Harrison went 3-5, clubbed a go ahead double, homered and drive in 5 runs as the Pirates won against the first place Brewers, 8-3.
