Giants’ Belt loses final All-Star vote to Brewers’ Aguilar

Brandon Belt addressed the political press after learning he did not win the last-chance All-Star vote and said, "First off, I want to point out that Russia actually interfered with this election." Belt stressed he was trying to be light-hearted, but was very serious when he thanked his fans and teammates, and especially the club's social-media staff, for their effort to get him to his second All-Star Game. Even with teammate Derek Holland slathering his body with baby oil and taping another "Ballot Brothers" video with Hunter Pence on Wednesday morning, Belt...

Giants walk off a winner against Cubs on Posey’s single in the 13th

In a season that includes more days off, as required by the labor agreement, the league somehow found a way to schedule the Giants for 36 games in 38 days. Naturally, game 36 ventured deep into extra innings, an unpleasant development after the Giants finally solved a left-handed starter and score four first-inning runs. Frustration turned to elation in the 13th inning, when Buster Posey banged a two-out single off the right-field wall, bringing Brandon Belt home for a 5-4 victory against the Cubs. The Giants won their 10th home series of the...

Giants’ Posey and Crawford are NL All-Stars; Belt can be voted in

The fans love Brandon Crawford. They did not love Buster Posey enough. But both are going to the 2018 All-Star Game in Washington, and their buddy Brandon Belt has a shot to join them. Crawford and Posey were named to the National League team Sunday, with Crawford winning the election at shortstop for the first time. This will be his second All-Star Game. He also went in 2015. Posey had led through much of the fan balloting for catcher but lost to the Cubs’ Willson Contreras. Posey will go as a backup to his fourth consecutive All-Star Game because he was...

Giants beat Diamondbacks to complete sweep at Chase

PHOENIX - There was a time not long ago when the Giants treated Chase Field like their den. They would file into this downtown airplane hangar and bat the Diamondbacks like they were a cat toy. After some rough times here the past two seasons, the Giants got the feeling back over the weekend. They came to Phoenix 5½ games behind first-place Arizona and left 2½ games out after winning 9-6 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep and move five games over .500 for the first time in 2018. Six Giants had RBIs. Brandon Belt, Joe Panik and Hunter Pence each had two,...
