"I think our players can and should be proud of setting the San Francisco Giants’ single-season mark for wins," manager Gabe Kapler said after the record-setting win. "It’s a huge accomplishment. This team has done so many good things and to say that this club has won more games than any other San Francisco Giants team, it’s quite fulfilling."

The previous high water mark of 103 wins was set in 1962 and 1993. The Giants moved from New York to San Francisco in 1958.

Overall, the total is the third most wins in franchise history, which includes the years before it moved west.

With four games remaining in the regular season, the 2021 club still has chance to break the all-time franchise record for wins in a season of 106 - set by the 1904 New York Giants.

The 2021 Giants, who own the best record in baseball, enter play on Thursday holding a slim two-game lead on the second place Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West.
