After a poor start to the season, the San Francisco Giants have found their footing again.
They now sit at 25-25 after a 5-0 final score in Thursday night’s first game of their series against the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers.
One of the main reasons the Giants have been so hot is because their two rookies have swung hot bats.
Most recently, the Giants called up infielder Casey Schmidt and catcher Patrick Bailey, both of whom have guided them on this recent run.
On Thursday, the two came out in the clutch at American Family Field.
The Giants posted a video to Twitter showing the big hits from both rookies against the Brewers on Thursday.

Schmidt has been an interesting story.
The young third baseman was called up earlier this month and hit a home run for his first career hit at Oracle Park.
Bailey got to make his MLB debut with his wife and daughter present at the ballpark the entire weekend, and he got to hit his first big-league home run as they cheered him on.
Both are fast becoming fixtures in a young Giants lineup that has been producing pretty well lately.
Schmidt is hitting .339 with two homers, 12 RBI, and a .855 OPS.
The 24-year-old is also slugging .516 and reaching base at a .339 clip.
Bailey is hitting just .235, but he has hit one home run, driven in four runs, and posted a respectable .749 OPS in 17 at-bats.
