Don’t sleep on the San Francisco Giants just yet.
They may be a long-shot to get back to the postseason, but they still have a team capable of reaching the big dance.
Their resilience was put on full display late last night when Brandon Crawford hit a walk-off two-run blast with San Francisco down to their final two strikes.
The win was the Giants’ fifth straight and it moved them to within 4.5 games of the final NL Wild Card spot.
Crawford saved the day for the Giants with his walk-off shot, and MLB Network cameras caught the perfect angle of the home run as Oracle Park erupted in cheers.
Brandon Crawford sent Oracle Park into hysterics last night with this walk-off shot to beat the Dbacks!

Crawford Calls Game
MLB Network had the best seat in the house.
It’s hard to get a better angle than that.
That was hit directly to center field and the cameras caught the exact moment it cleared the wall and sent Oracle Park into a frenzy.
It was a perfect view of the entire stadium celebrating Crawford’s heroics.
More importantly though, the Giants were down to their final out and trailing by a run before Crawford hit the game winner.
San Francisco needed another win, and they got it thanks to Crawford.
Again, the Giants may be a longshot to get into the postseason, but they shouldn’t be counted out just yet, especially on the heels of a 107-win season a year ago.
They won’t catch the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West, but they do have a decent shot at catching and passing the San Diego Padres in the Wild Card race.
They’ll need more moments like the one Crawford gave them last night, and some more cool camera angles to catch them.
