After a poor start to the season, the San Francisco Giants appear to have found their footing again.
They now sit at 25-25 after taking their series opener on Thursday night against the NL Central leading Milwaukee Brewers by a final score of 5-0.
One of the main reasons the Giants are so hot as of late is the fact that two of their rookies have been swinging hot bats.
Recently, the Giants called up infielder Casey Schmitt and catcher Patrick Bailey, both of whom have guided them on this recent run.
On Thursday, both of them came through in the clutch at American Family Field.
The Giants posted a video on Twitter featuring both rookies’ big hits against the Brewers on Thursday.

Schmitt has been an interesting story.
The young third baseman was called up earlier this month and hit a home run for his first career hit at Oracle Park.
Bailey got a chance to make his MLB debut with his wife and daughter present at the ballpark for the whole weekend, and he got a chance to hit his first big-league home run with them cheering him on.
Both are quickly becoming fixtures in a young Giants lineup, one that is producing quite well as of late.
Schmitt is hitting .339 with two homers, 12 RBI, and an .855 OPS.
The 24-year-old is also slugging .516 and reaching base at a .339 clip.
Bailey is hitting just .235, but has hit a home run, driven in four runs, and posted a respectable .749 OPS in 17 at-bats.
