The Giants moved back to .500 and won their seventh straight game thanks to one of the weirdest walk-off win in recent memory. Perhaps we should have expected as much, since Friday's 1-0 victory came at the hands of the seemingly cursed New York Mets.
Pablo Sandoval's opposite-field swing harmlessly dropped in shallow left field thanks to some particularly Mets-ian miscommunication between left fielder Dominic Smith and and shortstop Ahmed Rosario. Smith's ensuing throw to home plate was errant, and Alex Dickerson slid in to home plate to seal San Francisco's second extra-innings win in as many games.
The Giants are now .500 for the first time in 2019. They moved to two games back of the NL's second wild-card spot, and Friday's win was their 14th in the last 16 games.
If you thought the Giants' climb up the NL standings couldn't get any stranger, Friday's win should have proved otherwise.
