San Francisco Giants Trivia of the Day

On July 14, 2005, the Giants made sports history.

On this day, the Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3, giving them 10,000 victories as a franchise. Why is this significant? On that day, the San Francisco/New York Giants franchise became the only team to have five digits in their franchise win total.

Let's take a look at the game. The Giants were tied with the Dodgers 1-1 at Dodger Stadium. In the seventh inning with two on and two out, Omar Vizquel drove an 0-2 pitch down the right-field line for a three-run home run, giving the Giants a 4-1 lead. The Giants would go on to win the game 4-3, giving Jason Schmidt his fourth straight win over the Dodgers that year.

Currently, the Giants are 10,372-8912 all time. Win number 10,372 was significant in that it won the National League West Title for the Giants in 2010. These 10,372 wins are the most in sports history.
