Webb’s mom knows son primed for Giants’ biggest moments originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Logan Webb‘s last two starts for the Giants have come with immense pressure, as he took the ball in Game 162 with a division title on the line, and again toed the rubber for Game 1 of the National League Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Webb went a combined 14 2/3 innings, allowing just 11 hits and four earned runs while striking out 18 batters. The 24-year-old seems primed for the big moments, something his mother, Christie, predicted when she ran into NBC Sports Bay Area Giants analyst Shawn Estes before that regular-season finale at Oracle Park.

“Of course my mom said that, but no it’s cool that she said that, I feel like growing up as a baseball player you grow up wanting to play in these moments and I was the same way, so happy to be able to throw these games,” Webb told Estes following the Giants’ 4-0 win over the Dodgers.

Webb’s dazzling performance put him in some rarefied air among postseason pitchers, especially considering it was Webb’s first playoff appearance.

Kevin Gausman will take the mound for the Giants on Saturday night in Game 2, as San Francisco hopes to ratchet up the pressure on the defending champions.
