…. Sweep?!?!

Three games, three wins, three shutouts!!!

Tied for first. The Giants delivered a crucial, mid-season knockout punch to their hated rivals,

sweeping the three game set, and unbelievably, not allowing a run to score:

…. The year was 1890. Benjamin Harrison was president. Bread was 3 cents a loaf. Milk was free because you just squirted it out of the cow. Bruce Bochy’s great-grandfather first uttered the words, “There’s no getting around it,” and the teams that became the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers played their first game.

They have met 2,361 times over 123 seasons. Through all the generations the Giants had not shut out their ancient rivals in three consecutive games.

Wow. That was nice. The Dodgers are reeling, and the Giants are surging. Great time to

be a Giants fan.

UPDATE: OK, maybe not a knockout punch. Maybe more like a standing eight count. ;-)
