Postgame: Giants beat Padres in 10 innings; Jake Peavy pitches into seventh

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants had a lot to feel good about before they boarded their plane for Colorado. The hottest team in the major leagues completed its third three-game sweep of the San Diego Padres this season, winning 4-3… Continue Reading → The post Postgame: Giants beat Padres in 10 innings; Jake Peavy pitches into seventh appeared first on Giants Extra.

Giants complete the sweep against Padres, walk off in extras

Jake Peavy was excellent, and the Giants overcame a blown save to win, 4-3. Start with the update: Brandon Belt's ankle sprain is mild. He'll miss a couple of days rather than a couple of months, which is great news, considering it looked much gnarlier than that. This could have been a very depressing recap. As is, the Giants beat the Padres for the ninth straight time. They've won 13 of their last 14 games, sweeping three out of their last four series. They're one of the hottest teams in franchise history, even though they've averaged just 3.5 runs during the stretch. For perspective, the...

Giants lose Belt but beat Padres on Crawford’s 10th-inning hit

After George Kontos got two outs with the go-ahead run at third in the top of the 10th, Matt Duffy hit a one-out single off lefty Brad hand. A wild pitch moved Duffy to second before Crawford blasted a two-strike pitch to the base of the center-field wall, completing the Giants' third sweep of the Padres this year. Belt raced to second and beat a wide throw, but his left foot got caught in the dirt and he turned the ankle. Jake Peavy shepherded carried a shutout into the seventh inning and and was in line for the win when Yangervis Solarte tied the game 3-3 with a two-out, two-run homer...

Giants go for 13th win in 14 games, plus lineups

Giants go for 13th win in 14 games, plus lineups The Giants have won 12 of their last 13 games and the loss came against Mr. Cy Young Jake Arrieta — not a bad stretch. Arrieta beat Jake Peavy, who hopes to get on track against the Padres on Wednesday. A win would mean a 5-1 homestand and a 9-0 record against the Padres. Hunter Pence is out again, as expected. The Kelbinator is in left field and Gregor Blanco is in center as Denard Span sits the day game after the night game. Buster Posey is off too. By giving Posey and Span the day off, coupled with Thursday’s off day, the Giants...

Padres Preview: 5/25 James Shields up against former Padre Jake Peavy and the Giants

James Shields faces off against Jake Peavy in the series finale at San Francisco. After yet another loss to the Giants, the Padres will look to seize their best opportunity for a win against a familiar face in Jake Peavy, former Padre and now Giants pitcher. To say that Jake Peavy is not doing well is an understatement. Even though both James Shields (2-6) and Jake Peavy (1-5) have very similar records this season, Peavey's ERA (8.21) is much more telling of his performance as of late. His ERA over his last five starts (9.58) is even worse, and he has allowed at least five runs in four of...

McCovey Chroncast #26 - Four Aces and A Funeral

Madison Bumgarner leads a pack of wild aces (and Jake Peavy) against the Padres and Cubs and the Giants end the week atop the NL West. After a 5-1 week, the Giants have now won 9 out of their last 10 games, including a Sunday Night Baseball game. We talk about the dominant stretch by the top three starters and the sudden -- and welcome -- emergence/return to form of Matt Cain as a viable major league baseball player. Is Matt Cain back? And more importantly, does Matt Cain's potential "he's back-ness" mean that trading for rotation help is no longer a priority? Is there a move the Giants...

Jake Peavy is staying in the rotation

If you were hoping for changes, they aren't coming. Yet. I wonder if, buried way, way down in his subconscious, there's a teeny tiny part of Jake Peavy that's slightly annoyed with Matt Cain right now. Whereas the Giants used to have two struggling starting pitchers, throwing one right after the other, absorbing all of the criticism together, now they have one. All eyes on Jake Peavy, struggling Giants pitcher. If you're looking for resolution, well, it's going to be a bit. From Henry Schulman in the Chronicle: "I don’t have a leash on him right now, so I don’t know how long," Bochy...

Giants’ Bochy has no plans to pull struggling Peavy from rotation

Giants’ Bochy has no plans to pull struggling Peavy from rotation Bruce Bochy could not have been clearer had he stood on the AT&T Park roof and yelled it through a bullhorn: The Giants have no plans to remove Jake Peavy from the rotation, and the manager believes Peavy will come around as Matt Cain has. A writer asked Bochy before Sunday's game how long a leash Peavy has. Peavy has had more than a few hiccups, evidenced by an 8.21 ERA and 1.90 WHIP in nine starts. To Bochy's point, Cain had a 7.84 ERA and 1.71 WHIP before a run of three good starts, including Saturday's victory...

Jake Peavy thumped, winning streak ends

It's not like you should have expected anything different, but the meeting of the two Jakes wasn't very fun. Let's check in with the mood at the ballpark. The only reason I'm bothering writing any words after that GIF is because I'm anal retentive. * * * The record is stuck, the needle keeps skipping, and here we are again: I have no idea how Jake Peavy gets anyone out right now. When he has a hitter 0-2, which is rarely, I have no idea what the next step is. He might as well be facing a 3-1 count. There's no kill pitch. There's no weapon. He relies on deception and...

Cubs pound Jake Peavy, Giants

The Cubs staked Jake Arrieta to a 5-0 lead in the second inning and he cruised as the Cubs won 8-1.

Giants win streak ends under a hail of Cubs runs against Peavy

Jake Arrieta's historic streak of not allowing more than three runs a start + Jake Peavy surrendering five in the second inning = start a new streak tomorrow, right boys? While Peavy failed to survive the second inning at AT&T Park in Friday night's 8-1 loss to the world-beating Cubs, Arrieta continued a run of pitching that has to make even Clayton Kershaw say "wow." The streak nearly ended with a Buster Posey drive to left that looked like a possible three-run homer off the bat, which would have trimmed Chicago's lead to 5-4, but it stayed in the park. The win might prove costly to the...
