By the time the San Francisco Giants got back to the clubhouse from a 13-inning marathon against the Los Angeles Angels, they were looking at starting pitcher Kevin Gausman a bit funny. “Did you pitch in this game?" manager Gabe Kapler jokingly asked him. Gausman did pitch against Shohei Ohtani, and they were both really good.
The right-hander allowed three hits over seven sharp innings Tuesday night in a 5-0 victory against the Los Angeles Angels. The surprising NL West leaders have won seven of eight and are a season-high 21 games over .500 with the best record in the majors at 47-26 and a three-game lead over the Dodgers. DeSclafani (8-2) did not permit a hit after the second inning and retired 18 of the last 19 batters he faced.
