The Giants weren't expecting much from Alex Dickerson when they called him up on Friday.
Instead, what the Giants have gotten is arguably the greatest start to a tenure in franchise history.
With three more RBI in his first two at-bats against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday, Dickerson now has nine RBI in his first two games with the Giants.
No one in the long, storied history of the Giants franchise has ever driven in nine runs in his first two games with the team.
One player had eight RBI in his first two games as a Giant: Former prospect John Bowker.
Alex Dickerson has nine RBIs, the most in history by a hitter in his first two games with #SFGiants. Previous two-game high was eight by John Bowker in 2008. #STATSLLC— John Shea (@JohnSheaHey) June 23, 2019
On Friday, Dickerson went 3-for-5 with a grand slam and six RBI.
The Giants brought Dickerson up from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday when they put outfielder Steven Duggar on the injured list. Dickerson wasn't exactly lighting the world on fire with the River Cats. In six games, he was hitting .176 with one RBI.
What Dickerson has done over the last two games is the stuff of legends. He can honestly say he did something Willie Mays, Willie McCovey and Barry Bonds never accomplished. That's pretty cool.
