The Giants (106-55) have a little extra support heading into their biggest game of the season Sunday.
49ers tight end George Kittle arrived at Levi's Stadium sporting Giants garb ahead of San Francisco's Week 4 clash with the Seattle Seahawks. Specifically, the City Connect jersey which the Giants have been so successful donning this season.
The Giants face the San Diego Padres on Sunday at Oracle Park with the NL West title on the line. If the Giants win Sunday, they will be crowned NL West champions. But if they lose and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers then the two teams will play Monday at Oracle Park to determine the winner of the division.
Following Saturday night’s blundering loss in front of a sold-out crowd, the Giants showed up calm and ready for the biggest game of the season. Manager Gabe Kapler did his usual barefoot routine in the outfield, and the Giants were loose ahead of Game 162.
The Giants will turn to Logan Webb on Sunday vs. the Padres, hoping the young right-hander can help deliver an NL West title to the Bay Area.
For Kittle, his nerves could be a little heightened as the 49ers face their NFC West rivals -- a division he himself believes is the most difficult in all of football.
While Kapler said the Giants are excited and ready to get to work, having Kittle as a force of support doesn’t hurt the situation at all.
