Dereck Rodriguez Will Start For Giants On Friday

The San Francisco Giants have proven to the rest of the league that they aren't just a team full of washed-up veterans in 2018.

Eric Thames Scores Three Runs On Wednesday

Milwaukee Brewers first baseman and outfielder Eric Thames crossed the plate three times on Wednesday. This is interesting because Thames only went 1-for-4.
