After a rocky start to the season, the San Francisco Giants seem to have found their footing again.

They now sit at 25-25 after dropping their series opener Thursday night against the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers by a final score of 5-0.

One of the main reasons the Giants have been so hot lately is because two of their rookies are swinging hot bats.

The Giants recently called up infielder Casey Schmitt and catcher Patrick Bailey, both of whom have led them on this recent run.

On Thursday, they both went through detention at American Family Field.

The Giants posted a video on Twitter showing the two rookie big hits against the Brewers on Thursday.

Schmitt is an interesting story.

The young third baseman was called up earlier this month and hit a home run for his first career hit at Oracle Park.

Bailey got a chance to make his MLB debut with his wife and daughter in attendance at the ballpark all weekend, and he got a chance to hit his first big league home run as they cheered him on.

Both are quickly becoming fixtures of the young Giants lineup, one that has been producing quite well as of late.

Schmitt is hitting .339 with two homers, 12 RBI and an .855 OPS.

The 24-year-old is also slugging .516 and hitting on base at a .339 clip.

Bailey is hitting just .235, but has hit a home run, driven in four runs and posted a respectable .749 OPS in 17 at-bats.
