The San Francisco Giants advanced to the divisional series round of the baseball playoffs after a 3 – 0 win over the New York Mets in last night’s national league wild card game.
Third baseman Conor Gillespie drove in all three of the Giant’s runs with a home run in the top of the ninth inning.
San Francisco now will face the Chicago Cubs in the NLDS.
Game #1 is tomorrow night at Wrigley Field.
On a conference call with reporters yesterday…….G.M. Al Avila confirmed that the Tigers have picked up the contract option on Brad Ausmus.
That means – despite speculation to the contrary – Ausmus will return as manager in 2017.
Under Ausmus, the Tigers finished 86 and 75 this season….and were in the wild card race until the final day of the regular season.
