June 16 - Top 5 Moments in San Francisco Giants History


What is this all about?

Here are the top 5 June 16 moments in San Francisco Giants history.

Walk off 1978 home vs.Mets, 17 over, 2.5 up in the west, we had won 6 straight, I'm 7 years old, it's my first full year following baseball, no wonder I'm still here four decades later.  4-4 in the bottom of the 9th, Jack Clark hits a 3 run homer off Dale Murray and we win it 7-4. Clark's best season in San Francisco, the second best season for a RF in San Francisco history. Unrelated, Tom Seaver, no longer a Met, threw a no-hitter this day.

1985 home vs. Padres, 7 years later we're 10.5 games out, this is the second game of a doubleheader (we won the front end) this one goes three and a half hours, down 4-3 with an out in the 12th, Dan Gladden doubles home the tying run off of Mark Thurmond.  Gladden signed back in '79 and was the starting center fielder for four seasons.  We deal him after the '86 season to the Twins for Bryan Hickerson.

Walk off 1985 home vs. Padres, same game, the next inning, 2 out in the bottom of the 13th, still 4-4, Chris Brown singles home Jeffrey Leonard off of Luis DeLeon to win the game.  Brown finished 4th in NL Rookie of the Year in '85, he made 60 grand that year.  Now, in today's dollars, that's a lot more, it's 136K - in 2016 Trevor Story finished 4th for NL Rookie, he made half a million bucks.

2001 home vs. A's, we had won 4 straight but were 5 out of the lead, down 1-0 in the 8th, Armando Rios triples home the tying run off of Jeff Tam, later in the inning Santiago would single him home with the winning run.  Rios got moved 6 weeks later in the Jason Schmidt trade and never played a big league game after 2013.

2008 home vs. Tigers, 10 under .500 and 7 games out of the lead, down 4-3 in the 8th, John Bowker hits a 3 run homer off Fernando Rodney, we win it 8-6.  We drafted Bowker when he was 20, four years prior - this was his rookie season, and the only one of his career where he'd be a starter (he was our first baseman). Bowker couldn't hit, he was subreplacement in his Giants career, we moved him to Pittsburgh at the 2010 deadline for Javier Lopez and he never played a big league game after 2011.

See you tomorrow.  Go Giants!
