Root, Root, Root For The Home Team
It was a busy day at AT&T Park today. When the Reds and Giants were rained out on July 4th no one knew how strange it would get. Officially the second game tonight became the first game of a traditional doubleheader. In the second game the Giants were officially the away team, and wore the road grays, (but statistically the Giants were the “home team” for both games) so you could say the road team won both games tonight.
In case that wasn’t enough, the second game was the 100th of the season AND Bruce Bochy got his 1,500th career win. Only 20 managers have reached that milestone and 12 are in the Hall of Fame…among current managers, only Detroit’s Jim Leyland (1,731) and Cincinnati’s Dusty Baker (1,638) have more managerial wins than Bochy (1,500).
