Watch Madison Bumgarner & Bochy Talk Belt Buckles! – Last night, the San Francisco Giants won the game, 5-3 against the reds, and scored big with fans with a trifecta of giveaways. Watch Aubrey Aquino catch up with Madison Bumgarner, Bruce Bochy, Jarrett Parker, and several fans at AT&T Park, to see what they thought about the special event promo items in this entertaining segment. Many fans at the game walked away with some cool Giants swag. The first 20,000 people inside the ballpark received a commemorative 2014 World Series Champion Belt Buckle. And fans who bought the sold-out Special Event Ticket Package for the game, got a cool Collector’s Edition Sergio Romo Tokidoki T-shirt. The Giants put on a big Tokidoki at the ballpark, with special merchandise at the Giants Dugout Store and a Tokidoki mascot appearance. Much like the Giants, the iconic lifestyle brand Tokidoki has a worldwide following of its own, known for its larger-than-life characters and eye-popping aesthetic. The Giants also celebrated San Francisco State University fans on college night, with a yellow/purple baseball cap mashup featuring the Giants logo on the front.
Giants fans not only walked away with some cool merchandise, but they also witnessed a historic night, as Jake Peavy, who struck out 8 in 6 innings, hit a line-drive home run over the left field wall off of Reds reliever Collin Balester. For Jake Peavy, now 7-6 in 2015, it was the third home run of his career, and his first since he hit one against the Dodgers in 2006. Fellow pitcher and Peavy’s friend Tim Hudson said ‘That’s the first legally blind guy to ever hit a home run in the big leagues.” #pitcherswhorake – The Giants pitchers hit nine home runs this season, the most since hitting 10 in 1934. They tied the 1924 staff with nine last night.
Marlon Byrd, Ehire Adrianza (2), Buster Posey also added to the score with 4 RBI’s to add to Peavy’s solo shot. Santiago Casilla came through big as he retired Brandon Phillips on a bases-loaded grounder for his 34th save after a replay review extended the ninth inning. San Francisco Giants fans thoroughly enjoyed the game, and they even had a dose of much-need rain, but not enough to stop the team from playing and winning the contest last night.
