Great Scott! Andrew Susac, the rookie catcher for the San Francisco Giants has altered the timeline of his rookie season, rewriting both the date of his MLB game and his first hit. It’s going to take a full 1.21 gigawatts to explain this curious case of baseball gone “Back to the Future,” so fire up your flux capacitor and let’s do this:

After an extended slump they would rather forget, the San Francisco Giants are gaining ground and back in the thick of the playoff chase as September begins. Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run homer among his three RBIs, powering the San Francisco Giants past the Milwaukee Brewers 15-5 on Sunday to match a season high with their sixth straight win. ”With our struggles here at home it was really important, just getting that confidence, the swagger, whatever, back,” manager Bruce Bochy said. ”I really thought we would turn it around.” Madison Bumgarner (16-9) followed his one-hit gem Tuesday against Colorado with seven strikeouts in six innings to win his third straight start.

Jake Peavy appreciated the effort of his defense. The Giants infielders were just as happy about his pitching. Peavy took a no-hitter into the eighth inning and finished with a one-hitter over 7 2-3 innings and the San Francisco Giants beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-1 on Saturday night. ”Any time you can beat a team in first place you feel good about what you’re doing.” The right-hander got the first out of the eighth on a nice backhand grab by third baseman Pablo Sandoval.

On a night when hard-hit balls were finding defenders, and vice versa, it took a floater to deny San Francisco Giants right-hander Jake Peavy a piece of history. Peavy took a no-hitter into the eighth inning and then combined with three relievers on a four-hitter in a 3-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night. The win was the fifth straight for the Giants (73-62), who clinched a series win against a team with a winning record for the first time since taking three of four from the St. Louis Cardinals from May 29 to June 1. It also allowed them to gain a game on the National League West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers (76-60) for the second night in row.

Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb swung through two moderately paced fastballs while striking out in the early innings Friday. Lamb hit his first career grand slam off hard-throwing Adam Ottavino with two outs in the eighth inning to lift the Diamondbacks to a 5-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies at Chase Field. Rockies left-hander Rex Brothers (4-6) walked the bases loaded to open the eighth inning before Ottavino entered and got first baseman Mark Trumbo to hit into a force out at home. Ottavino could not handle Trumbo’s comebacker cleanly, a ball that could have been a double play, and he had to settled for the force at the plate.

The San Francisco Giants hadn’t scored a single run while right-hander Ryan Vogelsong was on the mound in his five previous starts at AT&T Park. Buster Posey became the first catcher in Giants history to record two five-hit games, contributing a triple and four singles to a 19-hit attack that overpowered the Milwaukee Brewers 13-2 in the opener of a three-game series. Second baseman Joe Panik had a double among his four hits, center fielder Angel Pagan and right fielder Hunter Pence added three hits apiece, and left fielder Gregor Blanco belted a two-run homer for the Giants, who recorded season highs in runs, hits and margin of victory. The win was San Francisco’s fourth in a row and allowed it to pick up a game on the National League West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers, who lost in 12 innings in San Diego.

Colorado Rockies left-handed pitcher Jorge De La Rosa was claimed and blocked on waivers, meaning he will not be traded prior to Monday’s deadline, CBSSports.com reported Friday. It is not known which team claimed De La Rosa, but it was apparently done to block a trade to a possible contender. The Rockies looked to trade De La Rosa before the non-waiver deadline in July, but he will now head into free agency, where the Rockies intend to make him a qualifying offer before trying to re-sign him. De La Rose has a 4.19 ERA and 13-9 record in 154 2/3 innings this season.
