Giants-Reds lineups: Samardzija hopes to stay streaky, Blanco gets start vs. replacement lefty

CINCINNATI – This might be difficult to believe, but Jeff Samardzija has never won three consecutive starts in his major league career. Or maybe it’s not so difficult. In 2014, when Samardzija was with the Chicago Cubs, he went winless… Continue Reading → The post Giants-Reds lineups: Samardzija hopes to stay streaky, Blanco gets start vs. replacement lefty appeared first on Giants Extra.

Padres Preview: 4/26 Cash looks to scrounge win against Giants

It's Andrew Cashner against former teammate Jeff Samardzija in the series finale in San Francisco. Another one-run loss has the Padres mired in a 4 game losing streak that started on Saturday. Since the Padres have won the last 3 games a resurgent Cashner has started, the Padres will look to get back on track against the right-handed Jeff Samardzija. After a relatively disastrous start to the season, Andrew Cashner has gotten back on track with only one run allowed over his last two starts. He'll be put to the test against a Giants lineup that is rarely short on offensive power and has a...

Jeff Samardzija pitches, hits Giants to victory`

The Giants broke their longest losing streak of the season, and they did it with help from Jeff Samardzija's bat and arm. The San Francisco Giants won a baseball game. On Friday night, in front of tens of thousands of people who wanted them to score more runs than the other team, they scored more runs than the other team. This is a stunning turn of events, and you should be proud of them. The best part? I'm not sure if there's anything especially notable with how they did it. Sure, sure, the pitcher drove in three runs, but in a game decided by eight runs, I'm not sure if that was...

McCovey Chroncast #22 - The Giants Stunk

A crummy week of play leads to a stellar round of conversation about the Giants' roster construction but also the minor league system when our own Minor Lines scribe Roger joins us for an overview of the farm. The second week of the season didn't hit the highs of week one but man oh man did the Giants get hit hard in week two. But there are some things worth talking about, like... Jeff Samardzija! And Johnny Cueto! And... and, um... uh... Derek Law! And very little else. EXCEPT, joining us this week for an overview of the Giants' minor league system is our own Roger. You know him from...

Giants’ Duffy (.173) explains what he thinks is going wrong

LOS ANGELES — As the Giants begin a 10-game homestand Monday night against the Diamondbacks, third baseman Matt Duffy is slumping to the tune of .173 to start the season. Jeff Samardzija took his first loss with the Giants but said, “We were real close to a day we could be proud of.” The Giants played the Dodgers seven times in their first 13 games and now do not meet until June 10 at AT&T Park. . . . The Diamondbacks promoted Archie Bradley from the minors to start Monday night’s game against the Giants. Scheduled starter Rubby De La Rosa had to pitch in a 14-inning game Saturday...

Post-Game 13 Thread: Joc Straps Dodgers To Back With HR

DODGERS 3, GIANTS 1 It's another unlikely(-ish) hero for the Dodgers' offense today, as Joc Pederson, who had been struggling with a .242 average when play begin, launched a two-run HR in the fifth against Jeff Samardzija to give Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers the victory. Maeda allowed a third-inning solo HR to Joe Panik, but went a strong seven innings with only four hits (3 BB, 7 Ks) to earn the victory and move to 2-0 on the season. Samardzija, an off-season pickup by San Francisco, went to 1-1 with his six-inning performance, in which he was asked to bat with one out and a man on first...

Giants bats silenced by Maeda in Dodgers victory

LOS ANGELES - The seagulls that feed on the detritus of a ballgame have to be wondering why baseball season is two weeks old and they have had so few crumbs to scavenge. Samardzija had his second good start on the trip, allowing three runs in six-plus innings, but Joe Panik's third-inning homer off Maeda, the first run the former Hiroshima Carp allowed in the majors, was the only source of support for the Shark. The Dodgers did not test Samardzija until he allowed the first two hitters of the fourth inning to reach, but he got off the field with a shutout intact when Corey Seager was caught...

Giants get first glimpse of Kenta Maeda; Denard Span up to full speed

LOS ANGELES – The Giants can take a series at Dodger Stadium and salvage a 3-3 record on their road trip with a victory here Sunday. But they’ll need Jeff Samardzija to more closely resemble the pitcher who dominated at… Continue Reading → The post Giants get first glimpse of Kenta Maeda; Denard Span up to full speed appeared first on Giants Extra.
