How sweet it is to sweep the Giants!
I was at a memorial for a friend and co-worker that passed away after a long battle with cancer. We honored her by getting together at one of her favorite places to get a bite to eat and a margarita. A large group of us had a nice brunch there. I checked the MLB At Bat twice and I smiled. The rest of the game I heard it on my way home.

Per Dodger Historian Mark Langill, Last time Dodgers had consecutive road shutouts vs. Giants was 1957 at New York Polo Grounds by Brooklyn’s Don Drysdale (7/1) and Sal Maglie (7/2).
