Perez, Pence, Belt homer in Giants 7-3 win

The Giants would prefer to be playing for more than pride this weekend. They expected so much more than that. But at least they can rattle up to the pride recycling center and collect this: They will not join the 1998 Florida Marlins as the only defending World Series champions to finish in last place. They were assured no worse than fourth after beating the San Diego Padres 7...

WATCH: San Francisco Giants Juan Perez makes near impossible catch to preserve perfect game

Baseball is a game full of prophesies.  One is that if you’re put in the game defensively, the ball will find you.  Another is that if you’re going to get a perfect game, you’ll have at least one amazing defensive play to save your bacon.  While the “perfecto” by Yusmeiro Petit didn’t come to fruition by just one out, Juan Perez fulfilled both prophesies at the time...

Down on the Farm: Juan Perez
