Giants score runs, take final game of series

They said it couldn't be done, but a Giants player touched the Pentagon of Forbidden Joy on five separate occasions. On the first pitch of the game, Brandon Crawford ranged far to his right to spear a sharp ground ball. The on-screen graphic had just faded from the screen, and there he was, throwing a fastball from deep in the hole, across his body, and beating a fast runner by 10 feet.

Tim Hudson homers in Giants win, Brandon Crawford hurt

Hudson is well-liked by teammates who enjoy hanging with him in the clubhouse and by fans who recall his contributions to the 2014 championship run, all of whom could appreciate the 40-year-old’s work in Tuesday night’s 6-2 victory over the Diamondbacks. Speaking of injuries, shortstop Brandon Crawford exited in the fourth inning with tightness in his left side and left calf. Crawford’s exit occurred on the day second baseman Joe Panik returned to the lineup after missing more than a month with lower back inflammation. Panik was slow to get up and return to his position and was...
