The Diamondbacks had enough trouble with the Giants last weekend, losing two of three games at Chase Field, and now their longtime nemesis is on a bit of a roll as a disappointing season winds down.
The Giants hit six home runs a 13-5 victory in San Diego on Thursday have won six of their last 11 entering a four-game series against the D-backs at AT&T Park. Since the Diamondbacks took the NL West title from the Giants in 2011, the match has tilted toward the Bay Area. San Francisco has won the last four of the five series this season and has won the last five at Chase Field.
"We're a good ball club. We looking to continue to progress and to charge into the end of the season," Hunter Pence said after going 7 for 12 with his 17th home run at Chase Field last weekend.
Pence had his 10-game hitting streak broken Tuesday but still has 17 hits with three homers and eight RBIs in his last 12 games.
He is not alone. Pablo Sandoval reprised, almost exactly, his Game 1 W...

The Kung Fu Panda matched last year’s performance from game one of the World Series where he jacked three home runs against Justin Verlander and the Tigers. Last night Pablo Sandoval went deep three times against the Padres and it had been a long time coming for fantasy owners. Pablo Sandoval hit 3 HRS in 3 plate appearances. Prior to that, he had hit 3 HRs in 303 plate appearances...
The Giants entered Thursday’s game with the Arizona Diamondbacks at 62-77, 21 games behind the first place Dodgers, and struggling with the San Diego Padres to see who will finish last in the division. So, by the record, it would seem that the Giants season is over which it is. However, the Giants still have things they need to do.

Following Tuesday's game, from which San Francisco Giants All-Star Buster Posey was forced to exit after taking a pitch off his ring finger, manager Bruce Bochy told reporters that he expected to be without his catcher Wednesday. Posey was indeed out of yesterday's lineup due to his hand injury, and Bochy is left hoping that the backstop will return in the next few days...
Don’t be fooled by the title of this piece. It’s not another series of pot (belly) shots — sorry; couldn’t resist — at Pablo Sandoval and his exasperating Oprah-esque fluctuations.
It’s about the least-glamorized players on the Giants being the most responsible for the team’s failure.
Not that the Panda gets a pass here. He doesn’t. A team that succeeds in large part...

Yusmeiro Petit almost got the perfect revenge against his former team.
Petit lost his bid for a perfect game on Eric Chavez's two-out single in the ninth, and then recovered to retire the final batter in the San Francisco Giants' 3-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.
Petit (3-0) struck out Chris Owings to begin the ninth, and Gerardo Parra followed...

I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Pablo Sandoval hit three home runs in yesterday’s big win over the San Diego Padres. He looked like the Panda that hit three home runs in game one of the 2012 World Series. The only difference was that was on the highest stage for all of the baseball world to see, and this time it was on the lowest stage...
San Francisco Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit was one pitch away from a perfect game Friday night.
The 28-year-old journeyman surrendered a two-out single on a 3-2 pitch to Arizona Diamondbacks pinch hitter Eric Chavez in the ninth inning. San Francisco right fielder Hunter Pence dived in vain to catch Chavez's sinking line drive.
Petit put his hands on his head in disappointment...
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Yusmeiro Petit's bid for a perfect game was broken up by Eric Chavez's two-out single in the ninth inning, but the right-hander got the next batter to close out the Giants' 3-0 victory over the Diamondbacks on Friday night.
Petit struck out Chris Owings to begin the ninth, and Gerardo Parra followed with a routine grounder to second. He then went...

Yusmeiro Petit nearly threw a perfect game on Friday night for the San Francisco Giants against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Petit, 28, was making just his third start and fourth appearance of the season.
Though eight innings Petit was perfect. In the ninth inning he got Chris Owings to strike out. He then got Gerrado Parra to ground...
Hey, you want Giants playoff baseball? The San Jose Giants have a spectacular team to check out with a lot of prospects. They’ve got a real good chance to win the California League Championship, yet again.

Ryan Vogelsong fell apart while the offense couldn’t get it together in the San Francisco Giants’ 4-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday night.
Vogelsong avoided any damage for the first four innings but collapsed in the fifth. With two outs and no one on, he gave up four runs on five hits – including three doubles – and a walk.
“He just lost it,” said Bochy...

Eric Chavez pinch-hit single was a crushing blow, breaking up a Yusmeiro Petit perfect game with two outs in the ninth inning. Chavez took Petit to a full count, forcing him to give a decent pitch to the veteran. Chavez wasted no time delivering a line drive base hit to right field. Giants right fielder, Hunter Pence, who made an...
Pablo Sandoval hit three homers and drove in six runs Wednesday,
leading a rare power show by the San Francisco Giants in a 13-5 win
over the San Diego Padres.
Only Pablo Sandoval of all people got away with running on Gerardo Parra.
A day after his three home-run trots in San Diego Sandoval was in sprinting mode in Thursday night's 4-2 loss to the Diamondbacks in the opener of a weeklong homestand. He tripled in the fourth inning belly-flopping into third base to complete a mad 270-foot dash and then had the gall to tag and head for...
