Madison Bumgarner struck out 10 in seven innings of four-hit ball, outpitching Jonathon Niese to lead the San Francisco Giants over the New York Mets 2-1 Thursday. Juan Perez went 3 for 3 with an RBI single in his hometown, and the World Series champions won for the eighth time in 11 games. After taking two of three from the Mets, the Giants don't even have to change hotels - they stay in New York this weekend to play three interleague games at Yankee Stadium. Scores of San Francisco fans filled an otherwise empty Citi Field all series, and the Giants received a loud ovation as they walked off the field following the final out.

Bumgarner leads Giants past Mets 2-1

In a year of downs Madison Bumgarner has been one of the few constant ups. Now he is on the brink of a historic feat. Bumgarner struck out 10 in Thursday's 2-1 victory against the Mets to establish a career high of 199. He has one remaining start to reach 200 for the first time in the majors and become the fifth left-hander in franchise history to reach that plateau. The other...

San Francisco Giants Rookies Get Hazed, Forced To Walk Around Times Square ‘Naked’

Most teams use the month of September to get a good look at their rookies, but the San Francisco Giants maybe received too intimate a view of their young players. There is the time-honored tradition of Major League teams to have their rookies play dress up to entertain the veterans. Well on Thursday it was the day of reckoning for the San Francisco rookies. They were in New York...

Giants' Marco Scutaro could be done for the year

At this point, the season is long gone.  The San Francisco Giants are simply playing for the end of the year where they can regroup and rebuild for next season.  However, they'd like all their players healthy.  That's not going to be the case for Marco Scutaro.  In fact, he may miss the rest of the season. According to Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area, Scutaro has...

Giants Rumors: San Francisco 'very much' wants to re-sign Hunter Pence

Cain throws gem, Giants' bullpen blows it vs. Mets

Matt Cain is winless in three September starts despite a 1.29 ERA. That's the sort of season it's been for the San Francisco Giants and their All-Star right-hander. Josh Satin hit a two-run single to cap a four-run rally in the ninth inning that sent New York past the Giants 5-4 on Wednesday night, moments after Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada broke his right leg.

Giants' reliever Jeremy Affeldt out for season; conditioning a concern for management

To add to the woes of the defending World Series Champion San Francisco Giants' 2013 campaign, veteran lefty reliever Jeremy Affeldt has been sidelined for the remainder of the season due to a nagging oblique injury. Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports that Manager Bruce Bochy stated in an interview that lack of conditioning could be at the root of Affeldt’s injury...

Giants ponder how to acquire Japan home-run king

The idea sounds far-fetched but not so much that the Giants have dismissed it altogether. Some within the organization have discussed the possibility of acquiring former Mariners prospect Wladimir Balentien who hit his 56th home run for the Yakult Swallows on Sunday to break Sadaharu Oh's venerated Japanese single-season record. The Giants have a great connection with Balentien...

Giants Looking To Add Power in Offseason

What do the Giants and the lowly, farcical Miami Marlins have in common? Why, they both rank at the bottom of the National League in home runs, a particularly galling statistic for the soon-to-be-not defending World Champions considering the Marlins basically threw the season away last winter. The Giants have hit 9 home runs on the year, good for fourteenth out of fifteen National...

Satin, Mets rally for 4 in 9th to beat Giants 5-4

Josh Satin hit a two-run single to cap a four-run rally in the ninth inning that sent the New York Mets past the San Francisco Giants 5-4 on Wednesday night.

Mets Wrap: Mets Giving Away Games With Strikeouts

Another day, another ten strikeouts for the New York Mets. This time the Giants Madison Bumgarner toyed with the Mets the way a cat would a mouse.
