Giants win series against Phillies behind memorable plays and images you won't soon forget.

Madison Bumgarner was Madison Bumgarner, Hunter Pence was Hunter Pence, Jonathan Papelbon made a face, and the Giants break through when it counts to take the 3rd game of a 4-game series. The beauty of Baseball contained between two foul lines cannot be equaled or described by any other venture or gathering of humanity, now or ever in recorded history. Those events we experience become the stories we share and the emotions they elicit become fused to our psyches. Baseball's profundity comes not from the sheer tonnage of its history, however. No, it is laid upon us with a deft touch. It...

San Francisco Giants outlast Philadelphia Phillies, win 3-1

PHILADELPHIA - On a night that could have been disastrous for the weary Giants bullpen, Madison Bumgarner firmly reestablished his position as an ace.

Bumgarner, Pence lead SF Giants to third straight win, two-game lead over Dodgers

By Henry Schulman Philadelphia – With the bullpen bedraggled and the skies foreboding, the Giants had the right guy on the mound Wednesday night. Madison Bumgarner was strong enough and good enough to give manager Bruce Bochy the innings he needed. After playing 14 innings and nearly six hours Tuesday night, the Giants and Phillies endured a 59-minute rain delay in the fourth inning of a 0-0 games – not a big deal for the Giants’ biggest, strongest pitcher. Bumgarner rewarded his team with eight shutout innings, and Hunter Pence in turn rewarded his pitcher with a two-out, three-run...

San Francisco Giants (56-44) at Philadelphia Phillies (43-57), 7:05 p.m. (ET)

Madison Bumgarner looks to secure a third straight winning start on Wednesday night as the San Francisco Giants play the third contest of a four-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies.

SF Giants back alone in first place after third straight win

By Henry Schulman Miami – Maybe the Giants were rejuvenated by the time off. Maybe they ran into a team heading south. Maybe it’s a little of both. There are no maybes about this: With Saturday night’s 5-3 victory against the Marlins, the Giants have their first three-game winning streak in five weeks and returned to first place by themselves for the first time since July 2. They have come to this cavernous pitchers’ park and scored 14 runs in two games, while Madison Bumgarner and Tim Hudson have provided shutdown work from the mound. Hudson earned his 100th career road win and ended...
