How Mike Yastrzemski helped the Giants make MLB history against the Phillies – NBC Sports Bay Area and California

Mike Yastrzemski's two-run double in the second inning helped the Giants make MLB history with an 8-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies at Oracle Park on Monday.

The two runs scored helped the Giants reach 100,000 runs in franchise history, making them the second MLB team to accomplish this feat (h/t FOX Sports). According to Baseball Reference, the Chicago Cubs hold the all-time franchise record with 101,922 runs scored.

Although San Francisco does not hold the record for runs scored, the franchise has the most wins in MLB history with 11,489, slightly ahead of its archrival Los Angeles Dodgers, who have 11,367 wins.

The Giants' offense has been terrific over the last three series, going 8-2 over the last 10 games and scoring 76 runs. While San Francisco has struggled with injuries to key starters over the last few weeks, young minor-league call-ups like Heliot Ramos and Brett Wisely have been performing remarkably well.

At 28-27, the Giants lead the National League wild-card race and are five games behind the Dodgers in the NL West.
