Kombucha is having a moment.

You know that fizzy, fermented kombucha you've been drinking after yoga class? Turns out Russian babushki have been making it for decades as an alternative to sodas.

San Francisco Giants

It was the week of the Brandons: The home crowd enjoyed big offensive performances by Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford ...


Comment on Facebook

Where are all the people who kept saying trade Belt all last season or simply when hes in a slump? NO WHERE TO BE FOUND.

Go GIANTS Brandon's are great. Glad to see the Panda playing multiple positions and hitting the golf ball pitches, he can do it!

Belt is hot right now, wow

This is a team! They are feeding off of one another!

In this past week:
Belt batted .444 with 5 HRs and 11 RBIs
Crawford batted .520 with 1 HR and 6 RBIs
Gorkys batted .294 with 2 HRs and 4 RBIs
Longo batted .345 with a couple of RBIs
Posey, Gomey, and AJax all batted over .300 this week as well.

In the pen:
Smith has 6 Ks with 0 ER in 3.1 IP
Watson has 5 Ks with 0 ER in 4 IP

So poor Starting Pitching aside there has definitely been some highlights (especially offensively)

Love the Brandons! Wish they could have done this while they were in Philly! Wish I could see them in SF!

Brandons!!!!!!!! #Giants4life

Brand⚾️ns belt h⚾️mers🔥✔️

Love the Brandons! Great job guys! Stay hot Guys!

Let's Go Giant's

Kelby was Clutch!

My Man Crawford & Belt !

Good for the Brandon's and Posey......bad for Blanco

Travis Allen all the way!


What can I say, Brandon's do it best 😏

#11 for Brandon Belt & #5 for our #5

#ByeByeBaby | #SFGiants ...


Comment on Facebook

He's going to have a great year if he stays healthy then maybe all the Belt haters will realize he is a very good player and shut up

Belt is making a case! Arnold Hodge Jr Christian Davila

Comebacks abound. In-game and after losing the first two games of the series. I'm back east and was listening to WFAN sports talk radio and a caller asked the show host about 'the guy in San Francisco' to trade for or Madison Bumgarner. 🤣 Yeah, that'll happen. Fans, everywhere. Hopefully, Belt will be named to the all-star roster. SF fans won't vote for him, or will they?

Tell it “bye bye baby” ⚾️🔥✔️

Yes yes yes !!! Those was some big Bomb by Belt# 9 and #5 !!! Let's keep the hot bats going Giants!

Stay hot Brandon belt

Got a tough road trip with Houston, Chicago and then the Colorado. Keep that fire burning Giants.

I for one am ecstatic with Brandon Belts good fortune. I remember him crying when he made the club. This is a game of averages.......and Belts time has come. Hurrrrrrrrrrray!

Two in a row. Keep the good times going.

Belt is on 🔥⚾️

Belt prove me wrong he deserve to be a all star. Hoping!!!!

Let's Go Giant's

Have a year!!!!

Travis Allen all the way!

Keep em comin

Giants babeeee !!!!!!!!

Get it! get it! Brandon's!!!

Great game!

Yes yes yes !!!

RECAP: Series split. Back to .500. Next series begins Tuesday in Houston. #SFGiants ...


Comment on Facebook

Our offense is solid

I’ll take it! With MadBum MM and Big Mac comin’ soon we will be in great shape!!

Best game so far. Very exciting

Meanwhile in D.C.

I’ll be at both games representing! Gonna be a very tough two games.

I need a new World Series Champion T!😂Attn: #SFGiants

Giants are on fire! Just 2 out. And I'll keep saying it. This is a good team!

Well, if the Giants go 2-6 on this upcoming road trip, it will have to be considered a success. They could very easily end up 0-8, but I see them taking two out of three in Denver.

Let's Go Giant's

Houston we have a problem...Giants are gonna win...Go Giants!!

Only 2 games out of 1st, we are still in this race

Gorkys got himself some of whatever Belt is having for breakfast, lol.

See you guys in Houston!

So long as we score 9 vs the Rockies, we'll be okay

I'll take it from a tough team... 👍👍

Love our Giants!

Is madbum near clear to play tuesday

Travis Allen all the way!

Go Giants again from now on !!!

Colin Lauman series split so we don’t have to fight about it! 😆🧡🖤💜

The Giants concluded their homestand with a power display as they hit three home runs in the win over the Rockies. ...


Comment on Facebook

I think this shows the importance buster has defensively on the team. We’re spoiled with him

I actually like fb does both teams highlights I enjoy the other teams announcers getting pumped just to lose to my boys. Lol

That's one heck of a last play. Also, stop sliding. Remember Jason Kendall and that sliding into first is slower.

Can't wait to watch my Gmen here in Colorado on the 30th!!!

It's hard to see Buster he's a blur on the base paths😁

Glad they got that win and hoping it carries on to Houston but with the dual combo of Cole and Verlander it'll be a real challenge

Yes but we still have a slight lead over you in standings .. but good game yesterday and today you guys beat us

Our offense is carrying us for a change. Just try and hold on till Bum and Cueto come back boys.

That play by Posey on that last out was 🔥

Did anyone else think Jackson gave up on Story's ball off the wall?

Getting thrown out at 3rd for final out of game is always bad for your clubhouse 😂😂 Story gonna hear that one tonight on the plane. Good job G let's get a jump on this road trip. Back at .500

Glad Specks is getting some playing time and hitting well.

Never ever ever want to make the 3rd out at 3rd sad...

Our bullpen is lucky we have great defensive players. Seriously, I’ve never seen a throw like that to end a game before. Strickland, Dyson and the rest better be buying shots for that.

Great game yesterday! Love my Giants!

Nice comeback victory. Is all forgiven because Giants fans (moi) become irritated with three game-losing streaks? Howls of derisive laughter...😊

Hey! third place! Madbum is coming back soon! Even year!

Travis Allen all the way!

Loved that game, keep it up!

When Posey hits a triple, things are good, and we know once again we have a great ballpark!

Good win for the orange and black. It makes it so much easier when you get timely hitting.

Morgan Witwer when anyone but Posey could’ve made it a homer haha

Keep it going. Keep the pitching up in Houston.

When McGee came in I said to my wife, 8-5, just watch. And boom!

Can’t wait to see my Gmen in Houston this week!!!!

The outcome is mighty fine when we score 9️⃣ #SFGiants ...

Hey Giants fans! Rockies fan here, your team outsmarted the Rockies! I know the playoffs are almost 5 months away from now, but there is a lot of baseball left to play, so keep fighting and know that your team might make it to the playoffs this October!! Best of luck this year San Francisco Giants! We Rockies WILL see you soon!!!

CONGRATULATIONS G-MEN!!!! Another GREAT win!!! Brandon Belt and Gorkys Hernandez... AWESOME!!!! Get ready for MadBum soon. We need those bats to stay 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥!!!!

See... Hitting is very important!!
Btw, Gearrin needs to go..

Now that the Giants took care of the Rockies the Warriors will bury the Rockets. Bring 'em on!

The last out ...Posey is the best thinking player in baseball.

Can’t wait until Gigantes are in Seattle! #SFGiants

Only two games out of first place in the NL West. Fantastic. They are getting some big names ready to come back and make a push for first place. Go Giants!

Gosh we need to start catching up in the standings. Lets catch fire and get going San Francisco Giants!!!!

Back to .500. Let's get MadBum back and then go on a tear. We can win this division!

Linden Moore why isn’t Crawford high fiving everyone?! He doesn’t high five like two of the guys and it’s bugging me.

It’s early but just sayin...

Houston, Cubs, and Rockies next on the road. Giants had better find some starting pitching real soon.

Respect the specs, way to go Tomlinson🙏🙏🙏

Buster got DIR-TY!

Awesome come back!!

We just need to get our starting pitchers back from the injuries

San Francisco Giants

Gorkys 💣
Distance: 375 feet
Exit velocity: 101 MPH
Launch angle: 35 degrees


Comment on Facebook

It’s 399 to center. If it went 375 feet he would have caught it...

Who measured it, Joe West? 😂

Exit Velocity? Launch Angle? WGAF. This is the death of baseball.

Hmmmm...375ft. to fly over a fence 399 feet away? No wonder the U.S. does so poorly on math tests compared to the rest of the world.

So he hits it to the right of 399 and they say 375? closer to 410 I'm guessing.

🤔 375? 399 on the wall.

....and twice as many Home runs as Buster btw...,

Statcast does not include the wind or humidity.

Lol hits a 375ft over the 399 ft fence

How is that 375 feet?

Yeah, but what about Belt! #GiraffeWatch

Wow that play by Buster was all time!

375 feet? It just passed the 399 sign. Pretty sure that distance estimation is a bit short...

You got the distance wrong it’s three it’s 399 to the fence not 375

Will Pence ever be called back up or should we consider his days of a San Francisco Giant gone?

Gorkys is on FIRE! They really need this WIN⚾Lets GO GIANTS!

Fire whoever posted this. 399+ does not equal 375 feet. Explain Lucy...explain.

Most improved player on the team. Hands down. No discussion.

Gorkys is Having a good season, and is more and more reliable. Surprised

How is it 375 when the Wall where it went out says 399???

Got people talking about technacalities...Go Big Bad Giants

Someone needs to recalibrate their magical "numbers that don't matter" machine. Or walk the fence off again, either way.

OK, I will quit calling him Dorky.

Don't trust stats. Watch the game. The reason Billy Ball will never win a world series. #PLAYERSPLAY #NUMBERSLIE

Statcast operator should be canned, fence 399, but hr ball traveled 375?

Many thanks to the California Military Department's military history program team for preserving our organizational colors and for displaying them throughout the state.

California Military History | California State Military MuseumsEarlier this week, as part of our ongoing program to preserve the organizational colors of the California Army and Air National Guard and State Military Reserve, we placed the organizational color of the 132nd Engineer Battalion on display at the California Military Department/Joint Forces Headquarters in Sacramento.

Today, our curator delivered the original organizational color of the 1st Squadron, 18th Armored Cavalry Regiment that was issued to the unit in 1965, to the squadron headquarters in Azusa for display in their regimental room that is being developed.. At the time it was issued, the regiment coat of arms had yet to be approved by the US Army Institute of Heraldry. As such, the crest and shield were omitted from the organizational color.

The "First of the 18th" was one of two Selected Reserve Force units of the California Army National Guard mobilized during the Vietnam War. The other was the 40th Aviation Company from Long Beach,
