Improving Giants’ offense exhibits promising signs as lineup grows stronger and deeper – NBC Sports Bay Area & California


Sep 10, 2023

The Giants’ offense is finally living up to expectations with a healthier and deeper lineup. Despite facing one of the worst teams in MLB, the Giants have scored a total of 18 runs in their last two games, including a 9-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies at Oracle Park. They have been consistently scoring runs and getting hits, with 13 hits in the previous game following a nine-run, 13-hit performance.

Gabe Kapler, the Giants’ manager, spoke to reporters after the game and attributed the team’s recent success to improved health and the return of key players to the lineup. Kapler mentioned that the offense has shown signs of coming to life even before this series, but having a full lineup and a deeper bench has made a difference. He also mentioned that the upcoming return of Michael Conforto will make the lineup even stronger, and the depth extends to the players coming off the bench.

Outfielder Mike Yastrzemski has been a standout player in this series, hitting 6-for-7 with two doubles and three RBIs in the two games against the Rockies. Yastrzemski discussed the importance of offensive explosions like the one on Saturday for the team’s morale and confidence. He mentioned that after a tough week, the team needed a game to show they still have fight and mental strength. The success of yesterday’s game helped build momentum for today and the team is aiming to maintain that momentum.

Starting pitcher Logan Webb was the primary beneficiary of the offense’s strong performance. He had received very little run support throughout the season, but the offensive outburst gave him a much-needed cushion. Webb acknowledged the pressure on him to pitch well, but having early runs, especially Thairo’s home run in the first inning, boosted team morale and energy. The team performed well on offense and defense.

After a six-game losing streak that brought them to a .500 record, the Giants have managed to win two consecutive games against the Rockies. This could be the turning point they needed to get back on track for the remainder of the season. The Giants have been known for their streaky performances, but to secure one of the three NL Wild-Card spots, they will need more complete-team wins like the one on Saturday.
