Today in Giants' History -- September 4

Not much going on --- I figured I'd put in a couple of "rivalry bits."

1953 - Despite consecutive home runs by Wes Westrum, Al Corwin, and Whitey Lockman in the 3rd, the Giants lose to the Dodgers 8-6 in a game marred by beanballs and disagreements on calls. Following a Clem Labine brushback on Giants IF Bobby Hofman, Larry Jansen throws at Duke Snider and Roy Campanella in the 8th.

1958 - At the Coliseum, the Giants score eight in the 1st inning off Johnny Podres and Stu Miller then coasts to a 13 - 3 win. The Giants take the season series from the Dodgers, 16 - 6.

Thanks to 1952toppsbaseballcards for the image.
