San Francisco Giants Baseball (SF Giants...:
The San Francisco Giants lost the series with Dusty Baker‘s Red, but did manage to pull off a come from behind win in the 9th inning to avoid the sweep. This is the first series the Giants have lost since the opening series sweep in Arizona.
Angel Pagan kept his hitting streak going (now at 11 games), and his big hit was a 3-run homer to give the Giants a 6-5 lead in the top of the 9th.
The man with the big hit streak is Pablo Sandoval. This guy can just flat out rake. He’s in the midst of a 19 game hitting streak, and looks to extend it to 20 tonight at AT&T Park against the Padres.
Remember how hot Nate Schierholtz was in the double header in New York? He had six hits that day, and looked like he was hitting beach balls. Well, a lot has changed since then. Schierholtz was hitless in Cincinnati which means he’s 0-for-13 since that double header in New York.

Forget bobbleheads. The San Francisco Giants are stepping up with giveaway game with Pablo Sandoval Chia Pets that they will be giving young fans at an upcoming game on May 16. How cool is that? Answer: pretty cool. The team has apparently partnered with the makers of Chia Pets to create a bust of their third baseman's head that grows grass instead of hair. To promote the game...
San Francisco Giants first baseman-outfielder Aubrey Huff released a statement on Friday addressing his stint on the disabled list for anxiety. Huff was placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday to deal with an anxiety attack he had earlier in the week. "Thank you to the fans, media and Giants organization for the outpouring of support during this very difficult week," Huff...
Giants second baseman Freddy Sanchez made repairs on his uniform pants as he discussed his latest setback since recovering from shoulder surgery last August.
Sanchez said Friday he felt a strain in his shoulder during pre-game warmups earlier this week with the Giants' Class-A affiliate in San Jose. He was scheduled to play second base Thursday but was moved to designated hitter...
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...
Two years ago, the Giants won the World Series and believed a red thong had a lot to do with it. For those who are unfamiliar with the history of San Francisco’s “rally thong,” it was discovered by Aubrey Huff during one of the worst slumps of his career. You can read the lingerie’s full background here, and see some pictures of Huff flaunting it at the Giants World Series...

John McInroe would definitely give this a “you cannot be serious!” But the San Francisco Giants are as serious as a heart attack. Pablo Sandoval Chia Pets. May 16th. If this doesn’t sell out AT&T Park, nothing ever will.
This has to be the greatest and weirdest and sickest and coolest stadium giveaway ever. A Kung Fu Panda Chia Pet?! YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!
San Francisco Giants second baseman Freddy Sanchez had a setback recovering from a separated right shoulder that has sidelined him since last June. Sanchez strained a muscle in the shoulder during a rehab assignment in San Jose, according to CSN Bay Area. Giants assistant general manager Bobby Evans said Sanchez would be shut down for five days. He was scheduled to be activated...
On some day late in Spring or early in the regular season (sooooo lazy), Julian (@GiantsNirvana) tweeted something that looked like this:
“On a scale of 1-10, the amount I’m worried about Angel Pagan: 0”
Julian’s faith restored my own, reminding me that Angel Pagan has started slowly before and would be just fine as the Giants’ starting center fielder. Fine, indeed.
After Tim Lincecum singled to break up Anthony Bass’ perfect game, we knew that all bets were off. It’s like when you’re watching a movie, and you while everything may be a little weird, it hasn’t quite crossed over into the realm of “supernatural.” People are moving and doing crazy things, but you could probably close your eyes and just pretend that somebody really could...

Well this was a game that had a little bit of everything. The Giants went down 2-0 early only to come back and score two runs of their own. Then they went down 4-2 and scratched and clawed to get back within one run. Then Scott Rolen, he of the sub-Mendoza Line batting average in late April homered for the second time in the series and things felt like they’d been Cincinnati’d...

Sean Marshall often goes to his curveball as an out pitch.
It didn't work that way against Angel Pagan.
Pagan hit a hanging curve for a three-run homer in the ninth inning, lifting the San Francisco Giants to a 6-5 win over the Reds on Thursday.
''The curveball's been a good pitch for me,'' said Marshall (0-2), who had his first blown save after converting...
Angel Pagan hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning, lifting the San Francisco Giants to a 6-5 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday.
Joaquin Arias led off the ninth against Cincinnati closer Sean Marshall (0-2) with a walk, and Ryan Theriot followed with a single. After pinch-hitter Brett Pill struck out, Pagan lofted a 1-2 pitch 386 feet into the left field seats to snap...
