ICYMI: Giants Set Franchise Record With Offensive Power Display Vs White Sox

On Monday, the San Francisco Giants dominated the Chicago White Sox in their home opener, hitting a total of seven home runs and securing a 12-3 victory.

This was a much-needed rebound for the Giants after being shut out twice during their opening series against the New York Yankees.

David Villar was a standout performer in the game, hitting two home runs, including his first career grand slam in the ninth inning.

Other Giants who hit homers were Joc Pederson, Michael Conforto, Thairo Estrada, Mike Yastrzemski, and Bryce Johnson. The Giants' seven home runs were the most they had hit in a game since 2002.

Anthony DeSclafani had a strong start on the mound for the Giants, pitching six scoreless innings and allowing only three hits to pick up his first win since October 2021.

Meanwhile, White Sox starter Michael Kopech struggled to keep up, allowing five home runs and seven runs over 4 2/3 innings, tying the team's record.

Overall, it was an impressive performance from the Giants, particularly after their struggles in their opening series.
