After a bad start to the season, the San Francisco Giants seem to have found their feet.
They now sit 25-25 after winning their series opener Thursday night against NL Central’s Milwaukee Brewers by a final score of 5-0.
One of the main reasons the Giants have been so hot lately is the fact that two of their rookies have been swinging hot bats.
Recently, the Giants called up infielder Casey Schmitt and receiver Patrick Bailey, who both guided them in this recent run.
On Thursday, they both fell into the clutch at American Family Field.
The Giants posted a video on Twitter showcasing the two rookies’ big hits against the Brewers on Thursday.

Schmitt was an interesting story.
The young third baseman was called earlier this month and hit a home run for his first career hit at Oracle Park.
Bailey was lucky enough to make his MLB debut with his wife and daughter present at the ballpark all weekend, and he was lucky enough to hit his first big league home run with them for the ‘encourage.
The two are quickly becoming essential in a young formation of the Giants, which has been producing quite well lately.
Schmitt is hitting .339 with two home runs, 12 RBIs and an .855 OPS.
The 24-year-old also hits .516 and reaches base at a .339 clip.
Bailey is batting just .235, but homered, had four runs and posted a respectable .749 OPS in 17 at-bats.
