Giants’ Crawford (concussion protocol) to sit against Dodgers

LOS ANGELES — Shortstop Brandon Crawford is not in the starting lineup for the Giants against the Dodgers on Tuesday night, although for the moment he is not on the concussion disabled list. Brandon Belt is at Dodger Stadium after playing in two rehab games for Triple-A Sacramento, but he has not been activated. The status of both could change before the 7:10 p.m. PDT game begins. Crawford left Monday night’s 5-2 Giants victory and was placed into concussion protocol after he collided with left fielder Gorkys Hernandez while chasing a...

Giants beat Pirates in a wild one, 13-10

The Giants were playing some of their worst ball of the year when manager Bruce Bochy decided to rely more heavily on his veteran hitters. So on July 29, he stacked four of them at the top of his lineup, batting Andrew McCutchen first, Buster Posey second, Evan Longoria third and Brandon Crawford fourth. For the most part, he has stuck with that lineup, and it has been hit and miss much like the entire season. Friday, it clicked beautifully from start to finish, and the Giants outmanned the Pirates in a wild 13-10 victory. The Giants...

Giants blow 9th-inning lead, fall 3-1 to Astros

The world champs came to town, though they weren’t quite as recognizable as they were in October. In the end, it didn’t matter. The Giants were one out from beating shorthanded Houston 1-0 in Monday night’s opener of a quick two-game series, but closer Will Smith yielded a three-run homer to Marwin Gonzalez, permitting the Astros to celebrate a 3-1 victory. For much of the night, the storyline for the Giants was Brandon Crawford’s sixth-inning home run and seven spectacular innings by Rookie of the Year candidate Dereck Rodriguez, who...

Brewers’ Josh Hader booed at AT&T in wake of offensive tweets

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Josh Hader, pitching in his first road game since his offensive tweets from seven years ago re-emerged, was the target of some booing Thursday night at AT&T Park. The left-hander was summoned from the bullpen down the first-base line with two outs in the sixth inning and needed one pitch to retire Brandon Crawford, who hit into a fielder’s choice. Hader also pitched the seventh and got the win. As Hader warmed up, a police officer and security guard stood behind the bullpen mound, which they did for every pitcher getting loose....

Giants’ Brandon Crawford weighs in on Manny Machado possibly in Dodger blue

WASHINGTON - Leapfrogging over three teams in the National League West is tough enough, but doing it with Manny Machado playing shortstop on the division leaders makes it a more grueling task. The Dodgers are expected to land Machado any day, a trade that could turn the division’s balance of power and put more heat on the Diamondbacks, Rockies and Giants. “Ooph, OK,” Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford said when told of the Machado-to-Los Angeles reports. “Any team that gets him will have an immediate impact, for sure. He’s one of the best players in...
