Giants lose to Astros, Crawford wins family duel against Cole

HOUSTON - A few sections of seats above the high left-field wall at Minute Maid Park are named after the street outside that parallels the seating. They’re called the Crawford Boxes, and for one night, they might as well have been named after the Giants’ shortstop. They were the landing point of Brandon Crawford’s fifth-inning home run that his family will never forget. It was the Giants’ biggest highlight in Tuesday night’s 11-2 interleague loss to the Astros, and it gave Crawford bragging rights at the next family wingding because the home run was...

Giants beat Rockies 9-4, three more hits for Brandon Crawford

Brandon Crawford is hoping May lasts forever and June never arrives. Actually, the way the Giants’ shortstop is locked in, he probably believes he can hit all summer. That’s what happens when a guy gets on a roll like this. Every pitch is fat, every swing is picture-perfect. That’s life with Crawford, at least it has been since the clock struck May. On a sunny yet brisk and windy Saturday afternoon in China Basin, the Giants whipped the Rockies, and Crawford led the charge with three more hits including a home run into the arcade that put the game away...

Giants’ Brandon Belt criticizes umpire after loss to Reds

Brandon Belt has been on fire at the plate. He homered in all three games of a series against the Reds at AT&T Park that started with two Giants wins and ended Wednesday with a 6-3 Reds victory. Belt’s strike-zone awareness has been off the charts, a huge reason he will take a .301 average into Thursday night’s series opener against the Rockies. When Wednesday’s loss ended with Belt looking at a full-count third strike from Rafael Iglesias, leaving Brandon Crawford at first base and Evan Longoria on deck, Belt was not happy.

Giants pregame: Updates on Posey, Crawford, Bumgarner, plus lineups

Buster Posey said the shot he took to the mask in the ninth inning Tuesday night was one of the worst of his career, but he seemed fine in the clubhouse Wednesday and manager Bruce Bochy said Posey was not being checked for a concussion. Posey is off, however, and the Joey Votto foul tip has something to do with it. Bochy wanted to give him a whole game off, and not even play him at first base, to avoid further risk. Brandon Crawford is off, too. It's tough to sit a guy who is the hottest in the majors for May (.455 batting average, 1.103 OPS), coming off a...
