The San Francisco Giants pulled off an impressive win at Dodger Stadium on Friday night.
The team found itself behind 4–0 after entering the seventh inning when Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Emmett Sheehan held him hitless in his Major League debut in six innings.
But San Francisco began chipping away in the top of the seventh and eventually took off in the top of the eighth.
After the Dodgers tied it up in the ninth, the Giants pulled ahead in the 11th and eventually won 7–5.
With the win, the Giants accomplished an impressive feat.
The win was the Giants’ fifth when trailing by three or more runs this season, matching their total since 2022, according to Sarah Langes of MLB.com.

To add to this impressive feat, this is the second straight game the Giants have had to rally from down at least three runs to win a game.
On Wednesday, the Giants were down 5–2 in the seventh inning at St. Louis.
But they rallied against a taxed St. Louis Cardinals bullpen to earn the win.
That trademark resilience was on full display again on Friday in Los Angeles as the Giants earned their fifth win in a row.
But having already won five games total after trailing by three runs or more is quite an accomplishment for the Giants.
The Giants missed the postseason last year, but now own a 37–32 record and are leading the race for the third and final wild card spot in the National League.
