Found July 25, 2012 on Friarhood:
After scoring just three runs in the first two games of the series, both losses, the Padres offense showed up to beat the Giants 6-3 to avoid getting swept by the division leaders. Monday’s series opener was all San Francisco as they tagged Clayton Richard early and made fine plays in the field for an easy 7-1 victory. Tuesday game was the more familiar pitcher’s duel both teams are accustomed to with the Giants coming out on top with a walk-off 3-2 win. But they couldn’t complete the sweep as the Padres offense was overwhelming with three homers, two coming off the bat of former Giant Jesus Guzman. The Padres will continue their 10-game road trip with a three game series in Miami starting Friday against the struggling Marlins. Below is a recap of the Padres stay in the city by the bay.     Monday, July 23rd, 2012 Giants 7, Padres 1 WP Ryan Vogelsong (8-4) 7IP 4H 1R 1ER 3BB 6K 0HR LP Clayton Richard (7-11) 5IP 9H 7R 7ER 2BB 3K   Clayton Richard suffered his worst outing...

Daily Friar 7.25.12

Every time we play the Giants it has a playoff atmosphere to it. I get that vibe especially when we are playing in San Francisco. I don't know if it's the sold out crowds or what, but it feels like a playoff game every time. Those people up there live and die with every pitch it seems, they go crazy for a base hit even. But that place really exploded when Angel Pagan stole...

Postgame Wrap: No Ham is Safe

Tonight’s game was vintage NL West. The Giants got up big in the first inning, and then fizzled. The Padres fought back in the second, and then fizzled. Madison Bumgarner, who looked shaky early, settled down and allowed just 3 hits, a walk and a hit-by-pitch – and 7 strikeouts – after the second inning. Edinson Volquez, part of the Mat Latos trade, looked shaky early but allowed...

Barry Bonds’ Top 10 Moments

On July 24, Barry Bonds celebrated his 48th birthday. Major League Baseball and the San Francisco Giants should be giving Bonds their deepest gratitude.  Let’s not forget what the man did despite all of the allegations thrown his way. He was must see tv.  You didn’t have to like the guy, but when he came up to the plate, everybody watched. We had no choice, it was almost like...

The Lineup Card: 8 People Who Could Use a Change of Scenery by Baseball Prospectus

1. Brandon Belt Brandon Belt burst onto the scene in 2010 and was, in Kevin Goldstein's words, "the biggest breakout in the minor leagues in 2010."It’s hard to argue with that assessment. Belt was the Giants’ fifth-round selection in the 2009 amateur draft, and all he did in his professional debut was zoom from High-A to Triple-A, hitting a cumulative...

Among the first sparks of trade deadline fever breaking out today with the Ichiro trade to New York and the Miami Marlins trading away infielder Omar Infante and starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez to the Detroit Tigers, the Giants seem to be searching for some help in the bullpen. Ken Rosenthal and Jon Morosi of FOX sports reported yesterday they have a major league source saying the...

Giants Beat Padres 7-1, Improve to 54-42

The Giants tagged Clayton Richard for four runs in the first inning of tonight’s game and it was cruise control the rest of the way, as Ryan Vogelsong held the Padres to one run over seven innings, and Buster Posey added a three-run blast in the fifth inning for good measure. Pretty much everything went right — or at least, everything that needed to go right. The Giants’ 2...
