SAN FRANCISCO, California — The San Francisco Giants became the first MLB team to clinch a playoff spot this season on Monday. They routed the San Diego Padres 9-1 for their season-high eighth consecutive victory, to return to the postseason for the first time since 2016.
“It took us maybe half the season to get the recognition nationally, but now we understand we have a target on our back,” Longoria said. “It doesn’t get any easier from here.”
The San Francisco Giants currently hold the best record in baseball with a 94-50 record overall with 18 games remaining and a battle against rival Los Angeles Dodgers for the NL West title.
