What is this all about?

Here are the Top 5 Moments on May 21 in San Francisco Giants history.

1969 home vs Cardinals, 2-2 in the 8th, 38 year old Willie Mays hits a 2 run homer off Gary Waslewski, we win the game 4-3.  It's homer #592 for Mays.

1972 home vs Braves, after losing the front end of a doubleheader the Giants were 10-25 on the season, we trailed 1-0 with 2 out in the 8th, Bobby Bonds hits a 2 run homer off Ron Reed and those are the last runs scored.  It's the 105th homer of Bonds's career.

2004 at Montreal, down 3-2 in the 7th, Edgardo Alfonzo hits a 2 run double off of Luis Ayala.  We go up 4-3 and win 6-5.  Alfonzo was replacement level in his 3 San Francisco seasons.

2013 home vs. Nationals, down 2-1 with 2 out in the 9th, Gregor Blanco triples home Andres Torres off of Rafael Soriano to the the score.  Blanco got a couple thousand plate appearances, mostly as the 4th OF for the Giants, but started and was worth a couple wins in '13.

Walk off 2013 home vs. Nationals, same game, Pablo Sandoval hits a 2 run homer in the 10th off of Yunesky Maya and we win the game.  Sandoval had two walk off homers as a Giant, the first was four years prior, also off the Nationals.

See you tomorrow.  Go Giants!
