Webb's postseason shutout streak reaches historic mark


Logan Webb's 2021 postseason campaign was nothing short of incredible. 

The 24-year-old made his postseason debut in Game 1 of the NLDS where he dominated (7 2/3 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 10 Ks) against a loaded Los Angeles Dodgers lineup. 

Fast forward to Thursday night, and Webb (7 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 Ks) continued his dominance in Game 5, earning him a high mark amongst pitchers throughout Giants postseason history.

Mathewson and the Giants won the World Series in 1905, a postseason where he threw 27 of his 28 scoreless innings. 

Webb and the Giants were unable to take down the Dodgers in Game 5, as Los Angeles won 2-1 on a controversial check swing by Wilmer Flores.
