Giants-Cubs Preview

The San Francisco Giants have won three of four to gain some ground in the NL West.

Joe Panik's 2 hits help Giants rally for 6-5 winover Phillies

Maybe the Giants have their second baseman. "I think he's earned going out there every day, the way he's played," manager Bruce Bochy said of Joe Panik. "It certainly helps your decisions at the end of the year when looking at your needs." The Giants didn't find a second baseman before the July 31 trade deadline, but they're more optimistic about...

Giants Rally To Win 6-5

There was nothing typical about today’s San Francisco Giants (64-58) and Philadelphia Phillies (54-68) game. Especially if you watch the Giants on a consistent basis you would think that after being down in the sixth inning 5-1, the game was as good as done. Not so fast. After a solo home run in the first inning from Hunter Pence and a not-so-great outing by Giants starter, Tim...

Gerardo Parra shines as Brewers win on challenge against Giants

Having already utilized the conventional with walk-off singles and home runs this season, the Milwaukee Brewers used a rare walk-off challenge to beat the San Francisco Giants, 4-3, on Tuesday night. First-base umpire Hal Gibson's safe call on a Joe Panik chopper with two outs in the top of the ninth inning was overturned by replay, with the Brewers ultimately coming out victorious...

Uncharted territory: Replay comes up roses for Brewers on game's final out

MILWAUKEE -- Instant replay in Major League Baseball has created its fair share of bizarre moments this season, as everyone involved with the game tries to get used to the quirks the system brings with it. Never before has a game at Miller Park ended the way the one between the Milwaukee Brewers and San Francisco Giants did Tuesday night. A near-sellout crowd of 40,465 spent just...

Brandon Crawford and Buster Posey hit one-out singles, and Pablo Sandoval’s walk loaded the bases. Michael Morse...

Belt (concussion) feeling no improvement

Joe Panik has a sprained ankle, Marco Scutaro's back remains balky and Ehire Adrianza might be headed to the disabled list after reinjuring his right hamstring Thursday. Logic suggests the Giants will promote just-signed second baseman Dan Uggla after two games in Fresno, but manager Bruce Bochy said he had not spoken to general manager Brian Sabean about Uggla on Thursday....

Wednesday was not a good day for Brandon Belt. Shortly after he arrived at Citizens Bank Park, he returned to the hotel feeling terrible, his concussion symptoms not improving. Belt clearly will not be returning when eligible to come off the seven-day disabled list Sunday. Instead, he might undergo more elaborate testing in San Francisco.

Giants Open Second Half with Return to Winning Ways

It seems like the All-Star break had no effect on the Giants, as they picked up right where they left off and pounded the Miami Marlins 9-1. San Francisco didn’t waste much time teeing off on Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi. Michael Morse continued to come out of his June slump with a one-out double down the right field line in the second.

Giants on Minus End of NL West and Wild Card Math

That the San Francisco Giants 2014 season has taken a major nosedive isn’t surprising. When we look back on this season, the surprising thing is that this team went 36-20 in March/April/May, and specifically had a stunning 19-9 May. One of the strangest things we see when an MLB team over-performs in the first two months of the season is that when they finally begin performing...

Ballpark Review - Chase Field

I witnessed a rare thing last Saturday. A Giants win. They've been few and far between these days, so I was thrilled to have seen it in person in Phoenix-- especially after witnessing their 456th loss in a row on Friday. It felt even better to win because I was surrounded by so many Giants fans. It felt like like a home game in many respects.I haven't been to Arizona since...

Diamondbacks’ Martin Prado Smacks Heads With Fan On Foul Ball (Video)

If you’re watching a baseball game and see a foul ball coming your way, you have two options: try to catch it, or get as far away from it as you can. This guy did neither. As Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Martin Prado ranged toward the seats Sunday to track down a foul off the bat of San Francisco Giants second baseman Joe Panik, one fan instead leaned his head directly into...
