Giants fail to complete St. Louis sweep — on to Wrigley

ST. LOUIS - While the Giants have dominated the Cardinals in the postseason, at least since the Atlee Hammaker days, these teams have always given one another a square fight in the regular season. The big hit doomed Cain on Sunday, starting with Randal Grichuk's three-run double in the second inning. Brandon Crawford and Eduardo Nuñez hit back-to-back solo homers - what else? - in the eighth. The Cubs have struggled to escape .500, causing consternation and in some cases downright panic on the North Side from some fans and media who think a budding dynasty needs to be up 10 games by the...

Giants come back in ninth again, beat Cardinals

Giants come back in ninth again, beat Cardinals

It took 730 days for the Giants to come back in the ninth inning. It took nine days for them to do it again. Single. Single. Double. That’s how the Giants turned a ninth-inning deficit into a ninth-inning lead. Brandon Belt got a single. Brandon Crawford got a single. Eduardo Nuñez got a double. The Giants were down by one, and there were two singles and a double. That’s how they won by a run. There were two runs scored on those three hits. To clarify: The first single put a runner on first base. The second single moved that runner to third while also putting an additional runner on...

Giants stun Cardinals in ninth, win opener of trip

Down 3-0 after six innings and 5-4 heading into the ninth -- after blowing a 3-2 lead -- the Giants came back again to beat the Cardinals 6-5 with two runs in the ninth against closer Seung-Hwan Oh. Eduardo Nuñez delivered his biggest hit of the season, a two-run double to center with one out in the ninth after Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford each reached on this their hits. Mark Melancon, in his first appearance off the disabled list, completed his seventh save by getting a double-play comebacker off the bat of Dexter Fowler, the Cardinals’ hitting star of the night. The Giants, who...

Giants win third straight with rare onslaught of runs

The Giants finally gave manager Bruce Bochy's heart a start in a good way by scoring four times in the first against starter Tim Adleman and three more in the second against reliever Barrett Astin, with Eduardo Nuñez and Brandon Crawford each supplying two-run hits. The biggest takeaway from the series and a 4-3 week was how different the Giants look with Denard Span crushing it atop the lineup and Crawford's Gold Glove back at short. Span returned from his wall-collision shoulder injury and had quite the four-game series. The Giants had a run two batters in after right fielder Scott...

Whew! Giants play 17 innings, Posey’s homer beat Reds

Giants play 17 innings, Posey’s homer beat Reds At 43 minutes past midnight on Saturday morning, the Giants pulled out a 4-3 victory over the Reds when Buster Posey homered with one out in the 17th inning. Cueto threw eight innings of two-run, five-hit, 119-pitch ball, and seven relievers combined for nine scoreless innings. The Giants played their infield in, and shortstop Brandon Crawford fielded Jose Peraza’s grounder and threw out Scott Schebler. In the 16th, the Reds loaded the bases against Cory Gearrin, who struck out Billy Hamilton to end the inning. Brandon Belt made the...

Giants activate Span, Crawford; infielder goes on DL

Giants activate Span, Crawford; infielder goes on DL Center fielder Denard Span was supposed to play three rehab games for Class A San Jose, but hey, after he broke up a Rancho Cucamonga no-hitter with a sixth-inning hit Wednesday night, what else did he have to prove? "Even though I wasn't going to play nine innings, at least I could help us get a hit here," Span said, smiling. Span felt no ill effects from the April 22 shoulder injury that landed him on the disabled list. The Giants activated him before Thursday night's game against the Reds with shortstop Brandon Crawford (groin...

Giants expecting to active Span and Crawford on Thursday

The Giants already said they planned to activate shortstop Brandon Crawford (groin strain) from the 10-day disabled list after playing in two rehab games for Double-A Richmond, Va. Span had two hits for the little Giants on Wednesday night, though after rehabbing Dodgers starter Rich Hill pitched five shutout innings for Rancho Cucamonga. Crawford has not played in the majors since he injured the groin in an April 25 home game against the Dodgers, the night before he started what was to be a three-day bereavement leave. Span injured his shoulder area while crashing into the wall at Coors...
