What is this all about?

Here are the top 5 May 22 Moments in San Francisco Giants History.

1968 at Atlanta, complete game 3 hitter by Mike McCormick, but it took a 2 out tiebreaking Willie Mays single in the 9th inning off of Pat Jarvis to give us the 2-1 win.  Mays was 37 in '68, had a 156 OPS+, his best year with the bat since '65.  It's his 14th best season.

1981 at Houston, 14th inning, 2-2, with 2 out Jerry Martin singles home Darrell Evans off of Dave Smith, we go up 3-2. Its Martin's only season in San Francisco, we got him in the offseason from the Cubs for Joe Strain, we'll move him in the offseason to the Royals for Rich Gale and Bill Laskey.

1981 at Houston, same game 4 and a half hours on a Friday night at the Astrodome, 3-3 game in the 15th, bases loaded, two out, Darrell Evans singles home 2 off of Bobby Sprowl, it's our 18th hit of the night and we win it 6-3.

2005 home vs A's, 6th inning, 1 on, 2 out, we trail Oakland 1-0, Moses Alou hits a 2 run homer off of future (mostly awful) Giant Barry Zito.  We win the game 3-1.  It's Alou's 5th Giants homer.

Walk off 2011 home vs. A's, 4-4 in the 11th, Emmanuel Burriss singles home Darren Ford off of Brian Fuentes to win it for the home team.  Burriss came up in '06 and did portions of five seasons as a utility guy.  He left after the 2012 season.

See you tomorrow.  Go Giants!
