After a 4-5 road trip, the San Francisco Giants returned to Oracle Park on Monday night to open a crucial homestand against the Nationals and the Phillies, two of the teams they’re chasing in the National League Wild Card race.

It didn’t begin on the best note.

The Giants fell flat in a 4-0 shutout loss against the Nationals to slip below .500 for the first time since July 20.

While a scorching 17-3 stretch thrust the Giants into contention, they’ve begun to lose steam at a pivotal stretch of their schedule, dropping seven of their last 11 games to fall to 56-57 and 3 1/2 games out of the NL Wild Card picture.

Kayvon Thibodeaux has every intention of winning the starting defensive end job for the Oregon Ducks but regardless of whether he beats senior Gus Cumberlander, the heralded freshman has extremely high expectations.

Thibodeaux, a five-star recruit and one of the top-ranked prospects in the 2019 class, is aiming for a statistical mark that no freshman in a Power 5 conference has reached since 2014.   Ten sacks.

The last freshmen in a Power 5 conference to record at least 10 sacks were Myles Garrett (11.5) and Derek Barnett (10) at Texas A&M and Tennessee, respectively, in 2014. Both averaged more than 10 sacks during their three-year college careers and were first-round draft picks.

The Medford Mustangs continue their magical season tomorrow as they begin play in the American Legion Northwest Regional tournament. 

Here are the first round matchups/  The tournament is being held in Lewiston, Idaho.

Game 1: Juneau (Alaska) vs. Medford (Ore.), 10 a.m.
Game 2: Bozeman vs. Bellevue (Wash.), 1 p.m.
Game 3: Casper (Wyo.) vs. Idaho Falls, 4:30 p.m.
Game 4: Kennewick (Wash.) vs. Lewiston (Idaho), 7:30 p.m.

The National League will kick off the 2019 MLB postseason. The wild-card game will be played Oct. 1. The American League wild-card game will take place the following day.
