Offense Disappears, Wastes Solid E-Rod Start, 2-1

For the second consecutive night, Mookie Betts led off the game with a solo HR, but on Friday, 12 more runs did not follow. In fact, none did. Not until the ninth inning did The Carmine Hose even threaten—when they loaded the bases with none out. With David Ortiz coming to the plate, victory seemed inevitable. Wrong, rosin bag breath! Papi hit into a double play and Hanley Ramirez lined out sharply to RF in the 2-1 loss....

Giants fall to 0-4 after the break after Ortiz homer ruins Peavy’s return to Fenway

David Ortiz hit a 450-foot homer with two aboard in the fourth inning to help deal the suddenly impotent Giants 4-0 defeat in their first game at Fenway Park in nine years. Peavy gave manager Bruce Bochy six innings, despite being hit by a Hanley Ramirez comebacker immediately after Ortiz's home run, which the Giants' disappearing offense could not overcome. The Giants get one more crack at their first win at Fenway in 101 years when Matt Cain returns from the disabled list and faces Drew Pomeranz in the latter's first start since the Padres traded him last week. The Giants' last win here...
