San Francisco Giants
The Phils’ bullpen allows one to get away in extra-innings, after the offense tied it up in the ninth, as the Phils lose to the Giants, 4-3.
The Giants took the lead in the bottom of the second as Hunter Pence hits a lead-off home run, his seventh home run of the season. The Phils tied it up at one-all in the top of the fourth as Kevin Frandsen hits a lead-off home run, his first home run of the season. The Giants retook the lead in the bottom of the fifth as, with a runner on second, and with two men out, Marco Scutaro hits an RBI single, scoring Gregor Blanco, who had earlier singled, then stole second base, giving the Giants a 2-1 lead. The Giants increased their lead in the sixth as, with runners on the corners, and with two men out, Barry Zito hits an RBI single, knocking in Brandon Belt, who had started the inning off with a walk, moved up to second base on Francisco Peguero’s ground out, 5-3, and then went to third on Brandon Crawford’s ground out, 3-unassisted, giving the Gi...

Welp. Ryan Vogelsong still isn't right.
It was another one of those starts on Thursday against Atlanta. You know, the one where he seems kinda okay through a few innings and then Bochy leaves him in 3 hitters too long and by that time he's given up 5 or 6 runs, and then he gets chainsaw angry, but it's too late, and we can't come back that one night?

A San Francisco Giants fan in a canoe nearly fell overboard into the water of McCovey Cove as he reached to grab a foul ball hit by slugger Pablo Sandoval during Tuesday night's game at AT&T Park.
It happened in the bottom of the third inning as Sandoval hit a deep foul ball over the right field stands into the cove, a few yards...
Hunter Pence is top-three is nearly every significant offensive statistical category for the San Francisco Giants this season, and it is not farfetched to start thinking about re-signing the 30-year-old.
Pence was a large part of the Giants’ 2012 World Series title, even though he hit just .210 with four RBI in last year’s postseason. His pregame speeches were legendary in themselves...
Just because Brian Wilson no longer makes his living at AT&T Park doesn’t mean that the freaks have stopped coming out at night. ”Hey Joe, want to go to the Giants game? I’ll pick you up at six.” ”Make it 6:30, I need to draw on my fake beard.”
Joe Giantsfan somehow found his way on an MLB Network camera. Joe Giantsfan will also spend the latter part of Thursday...
Santiago Casilla left Wednesday’s game with a right knee
injury while covering first base on a grounder. After the Ben Revere groundout,
the relief pitcher exited the game. Bruce Bochy stated that this injury had previously been downplayed and coming into the game Casilla was bothered by it. He got two
outs, including a strikeout, before he was injured and ultimately replaced...
After a tough outing for starter Ryan Vogelsong Thursday night in which he surrendered six earned runs in a 6-3 loss to the Braves, the Giants look to respond behind their ace Matt Cain Friday night. Cain was brilliant in his last outing against the dodgers where he was able to hold them to one run in seven and a third innings notching his first win.
The Giants hope Cain can pick...
As baseball has been the one constant through all the years, as quoted by James Earl Jones in the movie “Field of Dreams,” the one constant through all the years for the San Francisco Giants has been their starting pitching. From their first World Series victory in 2010 to their latest in 2012, the position players have vastly changed with the exception of one, Buster Posey...
Andres Torres lined a game-ending single to right field with two outs in the 10th inning, lifting the San Francisco Giants to a 4-3 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday to avoid a sweep.
Javier Lopez (1-0) pitched the 10th for the win after Sergio Romo blew his second save in 14 opportunities, failing to finish off Barry Zito's gem.
Buster Posey hit a pinch...
Ryan Vogelsong lasted less than five innings and gave up six runs in the San Francisco Giants’ 6-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night.
The fifth inning once again proved troublesome for Vogelsong as the disastrous four-run inning led to Vogelsong exiting, being replaced by Jose Mijares. Thursday marked the second straight start where Vogelsong didn’t make it out of...
Friday night the Giants evened up the four game series at one game apiece against the Atlanta Braves, fueled by a vintage performance by Matt Cain. The final score of 8-2 is a wide margin this scrappy team isn’t used to but one they have come to appreciate.
The big righty was brilliant from the get go yielding just three hits and two runs over eight solid innings earning his second...
When he arrived from Houston, the swing was goofy, but the work ethic was solid. No one ever accused Hunter Pence of not trying. Turns out, he was trying too hard, which is what we all saw with our own two eyes anyway.
Last season, while Pence was still with the Phillies, he admitted to doing too much in the absence of the meat of the order, Chase Utley and Ryan Howard. When he arrived...
Matt Cain pitched eight strong innings and San Francisco beat Tim Hudson for the first time in seven years in the Giants' 8-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.
Cain (2-2) allowed three hits and added an RBI single during a six-run rally in the fourth inning.
Hudson (4-2) was cruising until the fourth when the Giants batted around and scored six runs. Marco Scutaro...
We might only be in the first week of May, but the trade rumor mill has already begun to churn. On Monday night, after Philadelphia Phillies starter Cliff Lee spun his latest gem against the Giants, beat writer and CSN Bay Area correspondent Andrew Baggarly wrote that the Giants could potentially be suitors for the ace pitcher come trade deadline time. The Phillies are an aging team...
The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants have always had a volatile rivalry while doing battle in the National League West.
Lately though it seems the two fan bases have ratcheted it up the volatility. According to the Big Lead, punches and bottles were thrown during a brawl between fans from both teams Saturday night in the stands at AT&T Park,
No word yet on how...
