The Giants capped off their final series at Dodger Stadium in chaotic fashion on Thursday night, and made some modern MLB history in the process.
After the Giants cruised to a 7-2 win in the series opener on Monday night, each of the next three games featured ninth innings rife with comebacks.
Tuesday night, it was the Dodgers who got a towering walk-off home run from catcher Will Smith against Tyler Rogers to give the defending World Series champions an 8-6 victory.
The pendulum then shifted back to the Giants for the final two games of the series, as Dodgers' All-Star closer Kenley Jansen blew saves on back-to-back nights.
First, it was Wilmer Flores who crushed a high fastball into the left-field bleachers at Dodger Stadium with the Giants trailing to manufacture a 4-2 comeback win on Wednesday.
In the series finale, an overturned force out at second base eventually led to Jansen walking in the tying run on a controversial no-swing call by the first-base umpire.
LaMonte Wade Jr. then drove a single into right field that knocked in a pair of runs and the Giants capped off a crucial series win with a 5-3 victory over the Dodgers.
The series would have been thrilling regardless given the longstanding rivalry between these teams, but it also had a major impact on the NL West standings. Instead of the Giants losing and clinging to a one-game lead in the division, Thursday night's comeback win pushed the margin out to three games going into a weekend series with the Pittsburgh Pirates, owners of the second-worst record in MLB.
It was a series to remember in Tinseltown, and tensions certainly will be high when these teams meet next week in San Francisco on July 27.
