Scott McClain had a solid season in AAA and for the 2nd season in a row the Giants called up the 36-year old righty swinging 1B when rosters expanded in September. McClain has 271 career homers in the minors but he never played too well in the majors until this season. Previous to this year, McClain had played in 30 games in which he was 6 for 45 (.133 avg, .376 OPS) with 4 runs scored and 1 RBI. But, something has clicked for him this September. McClain has played in 12 games for the Giants this season and he is 9 for 31 (.290 avg, .849 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 2 homers and 7 RBIs. Perseverance has paid off for McClain and it’s a good thing to see.
