Photos: San Francisco Giants beat San Diego Padres 9-1 to secure first postseason berth since 2016

The San Francisco Giants secured their first postseason berth since 2016 and currently hold the best record in Major League Baseball at 94-50.

It is the first time in the franchise’s 139-year history that a Giants team has secured a playoff spot, with 18 games and 20 days remaining in the regular season. Entering Monday, the Giants’ 93 wins through 143 games were the fourth-highest for any NL team since 1969.

The Giants scored four home runs, with Tommy La Stella and Ivan Longoria both taking Padres starter Yu Darvish deep in the first innings, and Mike Yastrzemsky and Brandon Belt doing the same in the fourth. Longoria’s three-run blast gave San Francisco a 5-0 lead, and Belt’s two-run shot put the Giants 9-1 up.
