Found April 28, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The San Francisco Giants sent right-handed pitcher Eric Hacker to Class AAA Fresno after taking a 5-3 loss to the visiting San Diego Padres on Friday night. San Francisco recalled reliever Steve Edlefsen from Fresno on Saturday morning, according to CSN Bay Area. Hacker was brought up to make one start so the rest of the staff could have its regular rest. Tim Lincecum, today's scheduled starter, would have had to pitch on three days' rest on Friday. Hacker allowed three runs in six innings against the Padres. Edlefsen gives the Giants a seven-man bullpen to go with their five-man starting rotation. Edlefsen had a 9.53 ERA in 11 1/3 innings after he was called up in August of last year.

Bumgarner pitches Giants past Padres

SAN FRANCISCO -- Looking for 2012 to end better than 2011, the Giants need only to look at Madison Bumgarner for a big reason for optimism. The Giants left-hander started last season by losing his first five decisions, but this year he completed April pitching as well as anyone in the Giants' vaunted rotation. By working into the eighth inning in the Giants' 4-1 victory...

Postgame Wrap: Of Course Tim Lincecum Broke Up A Perfect Game

The Franchise has run into the first real dilemma of the season.   Aubrey Huff’s trip to the disabled list has left my team without a first base eligible player, and since first base is a desolate hole this year in the NL my best waiver wire options are Lyle Overbay, Travis Ishikawa, and one of the “other”  Nationals prospects that was called up this weekend, Tyler Moore...

Targeted Advertising
