Logan Webb's Masterpiece: 9 photos and 10 facts about the Rocklin native who shut down the Los Angeles Dodgers

The San Francisco Giants pitcher stuck out 10, walked none and led the team to a playoff victory.

SAN FRANCISCO — Logan Webb struck out 10 pitching masterfully in his postseason debut, Buster Posey hit a two-run homer that held up, and the 107-win San Francisco Giants blanked the defending World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0 in the opener of their NL Division Series. 

Webb, who grew up in Rocklin, gave up only 5 hits and didn't walk a batter.

ESPN' reporter Tim Keown wrote that Webb "pitched one of baseball's most epic postseason games."

MLB.com called Webb's performance a "gem for the ages." 

ESPN's Jeff Passan broke down how rare Webb's performance was, tweeting that,  "What Logan Webb did tonight for the Giants was awfully rare and awfully special. In postseason history, only 30 times has a pitcher gone 7.2+, allowed 5 or fewer hits, 0 runs and struck out at least 10. Look at the names. An absolute who’s who."

Kris Bryant and Brandon Crawford also homered to back a combined five-hitter by Webb and a pair of relievers.
