    Notable Performances

    • The Los Angeles Dodgers showed impressive resilience in their recent game against the Philadelphia Phillies, coming back from a five-run deficit to secure a 10-6 victory and complete a three-game sweep. The game ended in dramatic fashion, with Max Muncy hitting a walk-off grand slam for his 12th home run of the season, putting him in the lead for most homers in the MLB. This win marked the Dodgers' second consecutive sweep and their first six-game winning streak of the season.
    • Giants secured a series win against the Astros, thanks in large part to a dominant performance by pitcher Webb, who threw 7 2/3 innings. With Webb leading the way, the Giants emerged victorious with a 4-2 win, marking their second consecutive victory.
    • The annual Mexico City Series between the San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants was expected to favor hitters due to its high elevation and compact dimensions. As predicted, the game lived up to its hype on Saturday as the Padres won the opener and made history by playing the first-ever MLB regular-season game in Mexico City, winning by a score of 16-11. The teams combined for a whopping 11 home runs, with the Padres hitting six and the Giants hitting five.
    • Harper's back... that's all.
