Giants lose to Kershaw, Dodgers — bring on the final week

LOS ANGELES - The Giants season, mercifully, has reached its final week, with six more games to see if they can avoid 100 losses, bid farewell to Matt Cain, learn how high they will pick in the 2018 amateur draft and go home to see how quickly they can forget 2017. The Giants' penultimate week ended Sunday with a 3-1 loss that will be remembered for Mac Williamson hitting a moon shot over the center-field against Clayton Kershaw, but little else. Williamson had three hits against Kershaw, as did Hunter Pence, which was quite a feat in light of Pence's...

San Francisco Giants: Pence Has Big Night in Win Over Rockies

The MLB record for home runs hit in a season was officially broken today. Hunter Pence took note of this and added to the total with a home run of his own, lifting the San Francisco Giants to a 4-3 walk off victory over the Rockies. Johnny Cueto got the nod for the San Francisco […] San Francisco Giants: Pence Has Big Night in Win Over Rockies - Around the Foghorn - Around the Foghorn - A San Francisco Giants Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Hunter Pence delivers twice for Giants in win over Rockies

Hunter Pence delivers twice for Giants in win over Rockies

Hunter Pence hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the fifth inning and the game-winning sacrifice fly in the ninth for a 4-3 win Tuesday night over the Rockies.

Cueto at his own pace in Giants’ walk-off win

Johnny Cueto enjoys his time on a baseball diamond, and sometimes he just doesn’t want to come off the field. Never in a rush, Cueto moseys to the mound and moseys back to the dugout. He rarely runs hard to first base, preferring to save his energy for pitching. Giants fans saw a new Cueto trait in Tuesday night’s 4-3 victory over the Rockies. He broke into perhaps the slowest home run trot in history for a guy who didn’t hit a home run. The game was won on Hunter Pence’s bases-loaded walk-off sacrifice fly that scored Orlando...

What Should the San Francisco Giants do with Hunter Pence?

With one year left on his contract, the San Francisco Giants have a big decision to make this offseason regarding Hunter Pence. I know San Francisco Giants fans love Pence, but he’s an aging player that can’t stay healthy. And he’s owed $18.5 million next year. He hasn’t played in more than 135 games in […] What Should the San Francisco Giants do with Hunter Pence? - Around the Foghorn - Around the Foghorn - A San Francisco Giants Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Giants lost, but they were polite enough to lose quickly

The Giants lost, but they were polite enough to lose quickly

The pitching was fine. The hitting was poor. Jeff Samardzija was good, but he was a victim of bad timing, and the Giants couldn’t score for him, so they lost a tough one. I did not copy and paste this, but I will next time. In Friday night’s game, we had all sorts of fun developments. Samardzija threw a quality start and lost again. Hunter Pence fell a bunch of times, and now he’s hurt. The Giants were shut down by Robbie Ray, but it really doesn’t matter who was on the mound. After scoring eight runs on Monday night, the Giants have scored six since then, winning exactly zero of...

Pence, Giants tumble in a rough, 3-2 loss to Diamondbacks

Pence, Giants tumble in a rough, 3-2 loss to Diamondbacks

Hunter Pence twice came up short on plays in right field and left Friday night's loss in the eighth inning with an apparent injury.

Ryan Vogelsong to return to AT&T on Sunday to retire with Giants

Hours after right fielder Hunter Pence gave his peripatetic “I’m not ready to go home yet” speech before Game 3 of the 2012 Division Series in Cincinnati, Ryan Vogelsong helped Pence and all the Giants realize their dream of playing another day by holding the Reds to one run in five innings. The Giants won that game and five more elimination games on their way to the second of their three San Francisco World Series championships. Pence was thrilled to hear the Giants are bringing Vogelsong to China Basin on Sunday so he can retire as a Giant. ...

Hunter Pence is having a historically discouraging season

Hunter Pence is having a historically discouraging season

Players who hit this poorly at the age of 34 usually don’t get better. Sorry. The original headline/thesis for this article was this: The Giants will have a tough offseason decision to make about Hunter Pence. Then came the research. Now you have the new headline/thesis. As with everything the 2017 Giants come into contact with, things have gotten worse. Hunter Pence is hitting .252/.307/.370 this season. That’s good for a 79 OPS+, which is bad. He’s been healthy, mostly, but he just can’t seem to hit. This wouldn’t be the first time in baseball history that a 34-year-old has...
