Giants’ Joe Panik Becomes First Player To Hit Home Run In Consecutive 1-0 Wins

Published

The San Francisco Giants defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0 in the first two games in LA to open the season, and second baseman Joe Panik accounted for all the offense, with a solo dinger in each game.

On Thursday, Panik took Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw deep in the fifth inning, and followed it up the next night with a ninth inning game-winner off closer Kenley Jansen.

In doing so, Panik, 27, became the first player of all-time to hit a home run in back-to-back 1-0 wins.

Truly one of the most incredible stats I’ve ever heard, and I’m 100% sure that there’s a 0% chance that this ever happens again.
