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...

Giants give up 6 homers, get crushed by White Sox

CHICAGO - The perfect scenario was for Jeff Samardzija to resume his dominance on the mound and enjoy his homecoming on Chicago’s south side. That lasted all of two batters. Jose Abreu homered two outs into the first inning, and it proved to be a preview of chaos to come for the neck-turning Giants, who turned and watched a whopping six home runs leave the yard in a 13-1 beatdown by the White Sox. Samardzija gave up four, matching a career high, and Josh Osich gave up the other two. It tied the team record for most homers surrendered in a...

Giants’ Samardzija back home to face childhood team

CHICAGO - Jeff Samardzija has returned home. He’s pitching on the South Side of Chicago Saturday night, a half-hour from where he was raised in Northwest Indiana. “This fall weather is engrained in my head,” the Giants right-hander said. “It reminds me of going out and playing in the park, pickup baseball and pickup football, and of coming to games here and watching Frank Thomas and Jose Valentin play. I grew up a Ron Kittle fan. “These tickets were a little more affordable than Cubs tickets.” It’ll be Samardzija’s first start...

Giants finally get an NL Player of the Week: Jeff Samardzija

DENVER - Jeff Samardzija picked a good week to pitch two great games for the Giants. Giancarlo Stanton hit only two home runs, so the National League Player of the Week race was wide open, and Samardzija won it. "He's going to win MVP. Let some of the other guys get some things here and there along the way," Samardzija said. Samardzija is the only Giant to win the award, which the commissioner's office selects. Indians infielder Jose Ramirez won in the American League. Each gets a watch. The Giants had lost nine of 11 games when the awards...

Giants take heat: 95 degrees at game time, and then it soared

So the hitting conditions are advantageous in this weather? Balls flying off bats? A hitters’ paradise? So true Friday. Not so true Saturday — at least until Nick Hundley’s walk-off homer in the 10th inning. For most of the day, Jeff Samardzija and Lance Lynn turned AT&T Park back into a pitchers’ yard, each showing efficiency and dominance through much of a game witnessed by fans using makeshift fans. Newspapers, programs, foam fingers. Anything to circulate air. The first-pitch temperature was 95 degrees, and it...

Hundley’s homer lifts Giants in 10th

So the hitting conditions are advantageous in this weather? Balls flying off bats? A hitters’ paradise? So true Friday. Not so true Saturday — at least until the final swing when Nick Hundley homered over the right-field wall, his second career walk-off homer, giving the Giants a 2-1 victory over the Cardinals. For most of the day, Jeff Samardzija and Lance Lynn turned AT&T Park back into a pitchers’ yard, each showing efficiency and dominance through much of a game witnessed by fans using makeshift fans.

What Jeff Samardzija has in common with Kershaw, Lester and Sale

SAN DIEGO After Monday nights win, Jeff Samardzija noted that his favorite pitchers growing up were the ones who would throw 130-plus pitches and then come back on short rest and do it again. He said he fondly remembers watching CC Sabathia go on three days rest three consecutive times in 2008 to drag the Brewers into the playoffs.
