San Francisco Giants
In a back-and-forth game, the Miami Marlins took advantage of San Francisco mistakes and came out on top, as they defeated the Giants 6-5 to avoid being swept.
San Francisco drew first blood against Miami starter Tom Koehler when Gregor Blanco singled to lead off the game, and Hunter Pence crushed his 15th homerun of the season into deep center field to give the Giants a 2-0 lead.
But the Marlins would chip away at Madison Bumgarner. Jeff Mathis hit his third home run of the year in the third inning to cut the lead in half, and Miami added two more runs in the next inning. Giancarlo led off with a single, and Justin Ruggiano reached on interference by Hector Sanchez. Ed Lucas and Adeiny Hechavarria hit back-to-back singles to bring in Stanton and Ruggiano and give the Marlins a 3-2 lead.
The Giants would tie it up in the next inning when an RBI single by Pence – who finished the series with eight RBIs – scored Gregor Blanco, but some weird baseball in the bottom of the fifth would g...

In the premier of BaySports Report’s new series A Glimpse of the Future: A Look at the Top Prospects for the San Francisco Giants, we interviewed the Number One Overall Prospect in the Giants organization, Kyle Crick. The right hander brings it with a Fastball topping out at 97 mph, he’s 1-1 with a 1.75 ERA in San Jose, and his pitching line his last start looked like this: ND...
The San Francisco Giants have cut outfielder Jeff Francoeur. The fancy term that they use in major league baseball for cutting a player is “designated for assignment.” Designated for assignment sounds like an important military term, but in major league baseball it means that you are no longer wanted. It also means that they don’t know what they want to do with you. This...
Belt poses with a new friend.
Brandon Belt (aka the Baby Giraffe) has been on baseball radars ever since he torched three levels of minor league ball in 2010 and 2011. Belt has been looked at as somewhat of a disappointment ever since being called up to the majors in late 2011. He’s a little trouble staying on the field, due to Bruce Bochy obviously not being sold on some parts...
I GOT IT!
Video: "I GOT IT!!!"
As if it weren’t hard enough catching a ball in foul territory, what with the terrain to deal with and all that, Giants 3rd baseman Joaquin Arias had to fight off an overzealous ball girl as he drifted into foul territory to snare a foul ball off the bat of Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew in the top of the 9th inning of Monday’s Boston-San Fran game…

Jose Fernandez is the ace and future of the Marlins pitching staff
The Miami Marlins have gone through quite a whirlwind two years. Last season they were picked by many to be world series contenders after adding Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, and Heath Bell to go along with a core led by Giancarlo Stanton
and a healthy staff ace in Josh Johnson. Fast forward an off-season and...
The San Francisco Giants scratched third baseman Pablo Sandoval from last night’s lineup against the Boston Red Sox as he was dealing
with a sore back. Manager Bruce Bochy told reporters – including Chris Haft of MLB.com – that he could have used Sandoval as a pinch-hitter, indicating that
the injury wasn’t severe.
The Giants will re-evaluate Sandoval today before...
San Francisco outfielder Joaquin Arias runs into foul territory and takes a popup away from a Giants ballgirl in the ninth inning in game against the Red Sox Monday night.
Look at it this way —she could have been A-Rod getting beaned in Boston. Who said that?

Miami Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez squared up to bunt against the Giants’ Matt Cain on Saturday, but when he saw a Cain fastball heading right toward him, understandably, he bailed. But Henderson’s bat did not bail. Instead, the lumber levitated for a second and bunted the ball anyways, deflecting the pitch into foul territory. It was something you certainly don’t see...

When a team such as the Giants is "dying for a win" as Marco Scutaro put it it cannot quibble about the method.
When the Giants beat the Red Sox 3-2 at China Basin on Tuesday night on Scutaro's two-out bases-loaded walk in the ninth the crowd was silent because everyone thought the pitch was a strike. Scutaro did not immediately jog to first. Roger Kieschnick was just...
Any other year and Jose Fernandez would be getting a lot more attention. The Marlins’ rookie starting pitcher recently turned 21 years old and he was promoted to the major straight from Single-A. It was, at least, advanced Single-A, but his experience there was all of 55 innings. Now he’s up to 24 big-league starts, […]
Maybe it was a brain fart or maybe she just wanted a moment in the spotlight, but this ball girl forgot her role during Monday night’s Giants-Red Sox game in San Francisco. Sox shortstop Stephen Drew popped up an 0-2 pitch with two outs in the top of the ninth and the ball headed towards the ball girl’s area along the third base line.
But instead of getting out of the way like...
