Futures Game a showcase for Giants prospects Ramos, Anderson

A recent mlb.com report had a glowing forecast for minor-league outfielder Heliot Ramos, claiming that “while he needs a few years of development time, Ramos has the highest ceiling of any Giants prospect since Buster Posey.” That’s a bold statement, but Ramos has drawn raves for his five-tool talents — and he will be among the players showcased on Sunday in the Futures Game (1 p.m, MLB Network), part of All-Star week in Washington. Ramos was the Giants’ first-round pick in 2017. He’s the center fielder at Augusta (Class A), and the Giants...

Giants romp in Bay Bridge opener; A’s Lowrie injured

The A's were afire after winning three of four in Houston. The Giants clawed their way to a series victory against the Cubs, needing 11 and 13 innings for their two wins. "They're trying to get to the postseason. We're trying to get to the postseason," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said hours before the first of six straight games against their Bay rivals. "These are important games." Behind Madison Bumgarner, Buster Posey and two rookies, the Giants grabbed the first one decisively Friday night, 7-1 Bumgarner held the A's explosive offense to a...

Giants 5, Cubs 4: War of attrition

Giants 5, Cubs 4: War of attrition

This game was going to end on the first pitching mistake, and so it did. SAN FRANCISCO — You know, I think James Norwood is going to be a very good major-league relief pitcher. He throws hard, touches 97 and 98 consistently, locates well, has some good offspeed stuff... but seriously, there isn’t a much more difficult situation for him to be put in than a tie game in extra innings on the road. He did well for an inning-plus, then ran out of gas and Buster Posey singled in the winning run in the 13th inning, and the Cubs lost to the Giants 5-4. Really, this game could have been over long...

Buster Posey has hip pain, but he has Giants feeling good in walkoff win over Cubs

Giants walk off a winner against Cubs on Posey’s single in the 13th

In a season that includes more days off, as required by the labor agreement, the league somehow found a way to schedule the Giants for 36 games in 38 days. Naturally, game 36 ventured deep into extra innings, an unpleasant development after the Giants finally solved a left-handed starter and score four first-inning runs. Frustration turned to elation in the 13th inning, when Buster Posey banged a two-out single off the right-field wall, bringing Brandon Belt home for a 5-4 victory against the Cubs. The Giants won their 10th home series of the...

Giants’ Buster Posey will miss All-Star Game

Giants catcher Buster Posey was selected to his sixth All-Star Game but will sit it out with right hip inflammation. Posey will have a cortisone shot in hip hip after Sunday’s game and rest during the four-day All-Star break. The Giants’ first game after the break is in Oakland. “We talked about this in the past month, how we could get to the break and get this injection and hopefully get it to calm down and clear up,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “He’s been playing with it. You could tell. All of you can tell. It’s bothering him. He’s been a...

Giants’ Posey and Crawford are NL All-Stars; Belt can be voted in

The fans love Brandon Crawford. They did not love Buster Posey enough. But both are going to the 2018 All-Star Game in Washington, and their buddy Brandon Belt has a shot to join them. Crawford and Posey were named to the National League team Sunday, with Crawford winning the election at shortstop for the first time. This will be his second All-Star Game. He also went in 2015. Posey had led through much of the fan balloting for catcher but lost to the Cubs’ Willson Contreras. Posey will go as a backup to his fourth consecutive All-Star Game because he was...

Giants might have Slater play infield to boost righty presence

DENVER - The Giants have an issue that has made them increasingly wary of baseball's left-wingers. Since Memorial Day, when the Giants last were here, they have won 15 of 19 games when facing right-handed starters, but lost nine of 13 against lefties. The issue has become more noticeable since Evan Longoria got hurt and the Giants lost his robust .882 OPS against lefties. But the problem arose before that as Andrew McCutchen failed to hit consistently, Buster Posey's power declined and Austin Jackson failed to hit at all. Alen Hanson and...
