Surrendering two runs and four hits over seven innings, Giants ace Madison Bumgarner led San Francisco to a 4-2 victory against the Padres on Thursday in San Diego. The 23-year-old Bumgarner (10-5, 3.02 ERA) also whiffed six batters and retired 20 out of the final 21 Padres that stepped to the plate. With Ryan Vogelsong, Matt Cain and Tim Lincecum continuing to sodomize the canine, “Mad Bum” is one of the primary reasons the underachieving Giants (41-50) are only 6.5 games behind the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League West. The 10th pick in the 2007 draft, Bumgarner is now … Continue reading →

WHAT A PLAY

Hunter Pence diving catch preserves no-hitter

Tim Lincecum and his soul patch threw his first career no-hitter Saturday night against the Padres, but Lincecum is going to owe Hunter Pence dinner or naming rights to his first born or something after Pence made a remarkable diving grab to end the eighth and keep the no-no in tact. Lincecum also got some nifty help from Pablo Sandoval an inning earlier. It’s the Giants’ 14th...

Matt Cain says he's healthy after Giants pull him in first inning

The sight of the bullpen warming up is not something Matt Cain is used to in the first inning of a game, but that's exactly what happened on Wednesday night against the New York Mets. A short time later, following John Buck's two-run single, San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy pulled Cain for Mike Kickham after just 36 pitches. Cain told Tim Kawakami of the San Jose...

Giants 4, Padres 2

Pablo Sandoval hit his first home run since May 21, and All-Star Madison Bumgarner settled down to allow just four hits in seven innings as the San Francisco Giants beat the San Diego Padres 4-2 Thursday night in a matchup of the worst teams in the weak NL West. The defending World Series champion Giants, who snapped a four-game losing streak, have been in a free-fall since June...

Tim Lincecum Gets His Groove Back; Pitches First Career No-Hitter

What a long strange trip it has been for San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum. At one time he appeared like he was set to be the next G.O.A.T. Than he seemed to lose his mojo and became a mere mortal like the rest of the us. But not Saturday night. It may have taken him 148 pitches, but the man tossed his first career no-hitter. Oh--and he had 13 strikeouts to boot...

No-no creates Giant Freakin' dilemma

The Freak. The two Cy Young Awards. The 2010 World Series title. The regression. The frustration. The worries about his delivery and durability. The temporary move to the bullpen in last year's playoffs. The World Series resurgence. Another championship. Then another decline, with a 5.12 ERA at the beginning of this June. For a while, we've wondered where Tim Lincecum goes...

Giants 10, Padres 1

All-Star Buster Posey drove in a season-high five runs and Chad Gaudin and three relievers combined on a five-hitter, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 10-1 victory against the San Diego Padres on Friday night. Posey's two-run double highlighted San Francisco's five-run seventh inning, when Padres manager Bud Black was ejected for arguing an obstruction call during a...

Giants 9, Padres 0

Tim Lincecum pitched his first career no-hitter and the second in the majors in 11 days, a gem saved by a spectacular diving catch by right fielder Hunter Pence in the San Francisco Giants' 9-0 win over the last-place San Diego Padres on Saturday night. The two-time Cy Young Award winner in a season-long funk was the loser when Cincinnati's Homer Bailey no-hit the Giants...

Division battle by the bay, Oakland vs Giants

Oakland fans have had to wait a long time for days like this. As anyone familiar with Bay Area baseball will surely know, the San Francisco Giants have won two out of the last three World Series Championships. For too long now Oakland fans have seen throngs of new Giants fans delivered by the week, but as Bob Dylan might say the times they are a changing. The Oakland Athletics have...

Wait, the Giants won? Does that mean we’ve passed Rock Bottom? Actually, I didn’t ask that.  Don’t want to jinx anything.  Sorry, Baseball Gods!

The Freak throws first career no-hitter

  On July 2nd, Tim Lincecum was the opposing pitcher when Homer Bailey of the Cincinnati Reds threw a no-hitter against his San Francisco Giants.  Just when everyone thought the Freak was all washed up, Tim Lincecum celebrates his first ever no-hitter at Petco Park in San Diego.  The 29-year-old Lincecum dissected the San Diego Padres Saturday night with a thirteen strikeouts...

Report: Red Sox Have ‘Checked in’ With Giants About Bullpen Arms in Case San Francisco Decides to Sell

If there’s one thing we’re learning a few weeks before the trade deadline, it’s that the Red Sox are fishing for bullpen help. Their excursion stems from coast to coast. According to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, the Red Sox and Tigers have checked in with the Giants about relievers in case San Francisco decides to sell.
