The Giants have their best April since the before the World Series years.
Hello and happy Friday.
A programming note: there will not be a recap tonight, but I hope you enjoy the game.
Opening Day was on April 1, which means all of the Giants wins and losses so far have come in this month. So if they win tonight, they’ll have a 17-9 April record. A loss puts them at 16-10.

I stopped there because the beginning of the World Series run feels like a good cutoff for the modern era of Giants baseball. And win or lose tonight, the Giants will have had their best April of that era.
