Giants get their bats wet but fail to win

Giants get their bats wet but fail to win

The last time the Giants played a game this waterlogged, it was the deciding game of the 2012 NLCS. But brother, this wasn’t anything like the deciding game of the 2012 NLCS. The Giants opened up the 2017 season at AT&T Park with a 3-4 record against the Diamondbacks and the Rockies. They concluded this homestand in the rain and the muck on an Easter Sunday where the only thing that was truly Risen was Jeff Samardzija’s fastball. The play of the game was in the bottom of the sixth inning, when Brandon Crawford came up to bat with Brandon Belt at second base and the Giants trailing by a...

Giants beat Rockies: Marrero, Crawford hit homers

In home games, the Giants traditionally expect good pitching and good defense. Friday night, Chris Marrero hit his first career homer and Brandon Crawford also homered to ignite an 8-2 victory over the Rockies that left pitcher Johnny Cueto with a 3-0 record. The Giants went homerless in their first two games at AT&T Park and had 134 homerless at-bats at home before Marrero came to the plate in the second inning and easily cleared the left-field wall. Marrero made the team out of spring training as a platoon left fielder because of his power, having homered eight times in Arizona, but was...

Giants fall to 0-3 in Bumgarner starts with loss to Rockies

With Buster Posey on the concussion list and Brandon Crawford on the bench after a family tragedy took him to Los Angeles and back, the offense looked weak against Rockies Opening Day starter Jon Gray and four relievers who pitched the final six innings after Gray left with a recurring foot injury. The Giants loaded the bases with one out, but Greg Holland sealed his sixth save in six tries when the infield turned Eduardo Nuñez’s sharp one-hopping into a double play. The Giants looked feeble in three innings against Rockies Opening Day starter Jon Gray, but he had to leave with a 2-0...

Giants lineup: Brandon Crawford grieves a loss in his wife’s family

The Giants' Gold Glove shortstop is expected back for Thursday's game after grieving with his wife's family, but he isn't in the lineup for the series opener against the Colorado Rockies.

Giants’ Crawford out of lineup as Bumgarner faces Rockies

Giants’ Crawford out of lineup as Bumgarner faces Rockies Brandon Crawford is not in Thursday night's lineup against the Rockies, the second time in three nights he is not playing. Nor are the Giants facing a lefty. Right-hander Jon Gray starts for Colorado. Based on a social media post from his wife, Jalynne, I suspect this might be a family issue. Tim Federowicz makes his first start with the Giants after Nick Hundley relieved Buster Posey after the beaning Monday and started Tuesday and Wednesday night. More on Crawford when we get the actual news. Nolan Arenado is in the Rockies...

New season means new victory playlist for Crawford, Giants

SAN FRANCISCO In 2013, Brandon Crawford spent most of his time hitting eighth. The next year, he moved up a spot, and by 2015 he was a regular in the six-spot. Last year Crawford made 65 starts hitting fifth, his home this season, except on days when the man who used to hit in front of the pitcher will bat cleanup.Its been a steady rise, and over time Crawford has added Gold Glove winner, Silver Slugger, All-Star, MVP candidate and Team USA shortstop to his resume. One role hasnt changed, however.

SF Giants Minor Lines 4/12/17: Jalen Miller keeps on crushing

SF Giants Minor Lines 4/12/17: Jalen Miller keeps on crushing

The eyes of the prospect world were on the Greenjackets game last night. That wasn’t good for the Greenjackets As I’ve noted before on several occasions, Eliezer Zambrano has been on every Richmond Flying Squirrels team in the franchise’s history. In his first tour of duty in AA he was teammates with Brandon Crawford and Brandon Belt and Conor Gillaspie and Thomas Neal. He was even teammates with the long departed Eddy Martinez-Esteve. For parts or all of the last 8 seasons, he’s been a backup catcher in the Eastern League, as much coach on the Richmond squad as player. But in all...

Giants’ Panik thrilled to get Gold Glove trophy — again

Giants’ Panik thrilled to get Gold Glove trophy — again Gold Glove awards first are presented to players at a winter dinner in New York. Joe Panik had a different approach at this year's dinner. Panik was to receive the trophy again in a pregame ceremony Wednesday night, along with fellow first-time Gold Glover Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford, who won his third in a row. Panik's win was a surprise because he started only 118 games. Panik said Wednesday he believes his defense has improved every year, the more he has worked with infield coach Ron Wotus and with increasing...
