SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS NEWS

WATCH: Two rundowns on a walk

So is the official ruling here 1-6-1-3 or 2-1-6-1-3? Whatever the ruling was in the scorebook, it’s now the new let’s get two-outs-on-one-walk play. That is, unless San Francisco Giants’ manager Bruce Bochy has seen this kind of thing before. But since the Giants had lost six straight prior to this game, Bochy will probably go with it this time (mlb.com). Your browser does...
