Reds down Giants 7-5 in series opener

Peavy gives up three home runs as San Francisco’s division lead dwindles further.

Giants bring road woes home, lose to Reds 7-5

Giants bring road woes home, lose to Reds 7-5 The Giants returned home to face the Reds Monday night and lost again 7-5, and Belt had no more reason to feel guilty. Jake Peavy surrendered three home runs, and the Giants’ staff has given up 19 in nine games since the All-Star break. Peavy cruised through three hitless innings but lost his momentum in the fourth, issuing two costly walks that were followed by two-run homers, one by Jay Bruce and one by Eugenio Suarez. Peavy has surrendered 12 hits in two starts against the Reds this season, and a whopping seven were homers. The tale of...

Tuesday’s Red Sox-Giants matchups: Rick Porcello vs. Jake Peavy

The Red Sox will send Rick Porcello to the mound on Tuesday to kick off a two-game series against the Giants. He will be opposed by former Red Sox right-hander Jake Peavy. Porcello has been quietly efficient for the Red Sox, recording an 11-2 record with a 3.66 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. His 11 wins […]

Jake Peavy’s emotional return to Boston

For the 2013 Red Sox, who rode a community to a World Series title like no other team in history, these weren’t cliches. Jake Peavy was part of a group that supported and rallied around New Englanders after the April 15, 2013, Boston Marathon bombings, and the Red Sox’s unlikely road to the championship was the backdrop of the grieving and caring citizenry that reached out for one another in the wake of the attacks. “A lot of people made the comment, ‘Oh, man, you guys really put the city on your back,’” said Peavy, looking down on his arms. Peavy is back in Boston with the...

Why Giants righty Jake Peavy is pitching for another contract

Peavy was contemplating retirement until Roy Oswalt called in spring training and delivered distressing news.

Giants' Jake Peavy continues to give, even after so much was taken

BOSTON – There are days when Jake Peavy could feel cheated. There are days when he could feel frantic. Some others, he could be plain worn out.   He is a 35-year-old pitcher who hasn’t spent much time in the… Continue Reading → The post Giants' Jake Peavy continues to give, even after so much was taken appeared first on Giants Extra.

Giants Look To Get First Win Ever At Fenway Park

Before this week's two-game set with the Red Sox, the San Francisco Giants have visited Fenway Park only once. In 2007—a year The Carmine Hose won the World Series—the Giants were swept in a three-game inter-league set. The teams split a two-game series earlier this season at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Of course, in 1912, the then New York Giants played five World Series games at Fenway—with the Red Sox winning that Fall Classic. It's unclear whether former Red Sox pitcher (and current Giant) Jake Peavy will drive his 2013 Duck Boat to the park when he starts on Tuesday.

Giants’ rotation switch: Bumgarner, Samardzija, Cueto

Giants’ rotation switch: Manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday he’s altering his rotation in the wake of Cueto’s 32-pitch outing in Tuesday’s All-Star Game. Bumgarner will pitch Friday’s second-half opener against the Padres, followed by Jeff Samardzija. Rather than returning to the mound on three days’ rest, Cueto was pushed back a day and will start Sunday. Jake Peavy pitches Tuesday in Boston, and Matt Cain will go Wednesday if he comes out OK from his rehab start with Class A San Jose (at Lancaster) on Friday. “Once we saw Johnny would start the (All-Star) game, we knew...

Giants don’t get Peav’d by pitching and beat D-Backs two games in a row

The Giants now have a three game win streak going and it is fun. It could’ve been another game where Jake Peavy implodes or at least puts the Giants in a situation that could’ve netted them a loss. But no! They managed to take a game full of weirdness and actually win. And by weirdness, I don’t mean that old 8th inning weirdness back in the day. I mean Javier Lopez tripping while getting out of the dugout and a ball falling on Jake Lamb’s shoulder instead of getting caught (thanks for that one, Lamb!) and Peavy jawing at the third base umpire while Buster Posey throws the ball back...

KNBR Conversation with SF Giants pitcher Jake Peavy

KNBR Conversation with SF Giants pitcher Jake Peavy An edited transcript of a conversation with Giants’ starting pitcher Jake Peavy: What’s the coolest thing about the All-Star experience? Mac was a part of some plays early that he wished he could’ve had back, but he’s really come along, and after the play he made on the Fourth of July, I was ready to take him into my house. What’s been the difference for you the last several starts? I’ve heard you use the phrase “Less is more.” Early, I had that animosity of wanting to “take the bull by the horns,” and pitching...

Giants pick up Jake Peavy with good defense and a strong bullpen in 3-1 win over Colorado

Giants take holiday matinee behind strong Jake Peavy start, two dingers

Buster Posey gave the Giants the lead, and Jake Peavy and the bullpen held onto it. Jake Peavy was an ex-Giant walking. This is both a delicious play on the term "dead man walking" and a factual comment about how he was pitching. It was his pair of five-walk games that convinced me he was never going to return to his presumptive ceiling of pretty-good-for-a-fifth starter. If he didn’t have command enough to make batters chance and make weak contact, if they recognized not to mess with his chase pitches, Peavy was done, because he was several years removed from blowing anyone away. As...
