Giants come back behind Bumgarner homer, clutch hits

When Madison Bumgarner’s arm wasn’t helping much, the Giants staged an improbable comeback with the help of his bat The Giants were behind, 4-0, on a grand slam, and they were never going to score again. Ever. It was going to be the biggest story in sports until everyone just got really sad and stopped covering it. It was going to devolve into something that would be only for the tourists. "Get scared by the guy hiding behind a bush at Fisherman’s Wharf, then head down to AT&T Park and watch the Team That Never Scored Again!" Then they scored. Then they scored again. There were hits...

Offense is coming around, now it's up for the pitching to follow after crazy win over Mets

Nothing seems to make sense in the Giants’ second half so far, so perhaps it’s par for the course that an anticipated sizzling pitching duel between Madison Bumgarner and the Mets’ Jacob deGrom Thursday would turn into an almost ridiculous… Continue Reading → The post Offense is coming around, now it's up for the pitching to follow after crazy win over Mets appeared first on Giants Extra.

Giants hope to dull the pain on Nova-Cain day, plus lineups

Giants hope to dull the pain on Nova-Cain day, plus lineups If you’ve thought of a Giants game as a trip to the dentist the past month, Wednesday is your day because it’s Nova-Cain Day. Wish it was. Ivan Nova, who shut the Giants down for seven innings when he was a Yankee last month, faces Matt Cain, coming off a loss to the Orioles in which he allowed a career-high-tying 10 hits. If the Giants win, Cain will started four of the Giants’ 10 victories since the break. Buster Posey is catching the day game after a night game despite his back issue. Madison Bumgarner is...

Who's the N.L. Cy Young favorite? It might be Bumgarner

In for Baggs ... It's rather amazing that a pitcher could go more than a month without winning a game -- and his team not any games he pitches over five consecutive starts -- and still be in the hunt… Continue Reading → The post Who's the N.L.

SF Giants Minor Lines, 8/7

Leo Rojas had two career HRs since being draft in 2012. Now he has more! Digressing from the Minors for just one moment, but this is a pretty damn depressing stat: The Giants are 9-5 all-time when Madison Bumgarner throws a CG. By comparison, the Dodgers are 23-1 all-time when Clayton Kershaw has a CG — ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) August 7, 2016 Well, on the brighter side, this terrific Chris Denorfia catch last night did give me flashbacks to a certain Aubrey Huff liner and happier times: HIGHLIGHTS: Ramiro Pena doubled and HRd; Chris Shaw doubled and HRd; Manuel Geraldo...

Giants waste Madison Bumgarner complete game, lose series

Madison Bumgarner pitched a brilliant complete game, and the Giants had nine at-bats with runners in scoring position. Guess how that went! A time-traveler shows up at your front door. He tells you that Madison Bumgarner is about to throw a two-hit complete game. Before you can yell at him about spoilers, he disappears in a puff of temporal fog. If this had happened before any of Bumgarner’s first 200 career starts, you would have been excited to watch the game. A little concerned that someone used the power of time travel to get you excited about something you were going to watch anyway,...

Giants waste Bumgarner’s two-hit complete game, drop series to Nats

Wilson Ramos hit one 386 feet and bowed his head thinking he had flied out only to see the ball reach the right-field seats for the run the Nationals needed to win 1-0. If that is not Giants baseball since the All-Star break, what is? Madison Bumgarner could not have done more to win Sunday short of climbing the fence to bat Ramos' seventh-inning drive back onto the field. Somehow, despite failing to win any of their seven series since the break, the Giants remain atop the tepid National League West. Honestly, who would wager they will stay there unless they start scoring runs for their...
