All week long, students could be seen donning the orange and black around the Carlmont campus. It’s that time again, the San Francisco Giants will begin their playoff journey at home against the Cincinnati Reds. The Giants (94-68) will play a five game series against the Reds (97-65) to determine who will be moving onto the National League Championship Series.

The Reds were a complete team all year long, with a dominating NL Cy Young cannidate in pitcher Johnny Cueto and powerful homerun threats with mashers Joey Votto, Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips. Perhaps the Red’s greatest strength is their shutdown bullpen, with Aldoris Chapman known to throw 100 mph consistently.

Giants fans also have their reasons to be confident, MVP cannidate Buster Posey has made a full recovery from his gruesome injury last year. Posey mans a rotation that contains some of the best pitchers in the league. One of those, all-star starter Matt Cain, pitched a perfect game for the Giants earlier this season. The Red’s also had a game of brilliance this season, when Homer Bailey (slated for Game Four) pitched a no-hitter against the Pirates.

When asked how he thinks the Giants will do in the playoffs, junior Theo Fedronic said, “I think it will be a tough series, but we will come out on top in five games, the Red’s have a shutdown bullpen so its important to get ahead early.”

It will be critical for the Giants to win at least one of the two games at AT&T Park, as winning three games straight in Cincinnati will be no easy task. “It’s important for the Giants to get ahead in the series, because they never play well in Cincinnati, home runs come easy there,” Fedronic stated.

In the coming days, Giants fans will know for sure whether another magical run is in store for the city by the Bay.
