San Francisco Giants: Matt Cain Needs to Stay in the Bullpen

Wednesday’s finale: no homer for Stanton, no win for Giants

Wednesday’s finale: no homer for Stanton, no win for Giants MIAMI - Giancarlo Stanton did not hit a home run for the first time in seven games. “I’d rather he hit a home run and we win the game,” manager Bruce Bochy said. Matt Cain was charged with four first-inning runs, three of which were unearned thanks to Nick Hundley’s catcher’s interference and Brandon Crawford’s rare dropped liner. Both Cain, who lost his ninth straight, and Crawford exited after four innings as part of a double switch. Cain threw 73 pitches and said he was “kind of at the end of the leash,”...

Giants have discussed skipping Matt Moore in rotation

Giants have discussed skipping Matt Moore in rotation Asked if he might skip Moore at some point to let him work on his command issues away from the limelight, manager Bruce Bochy said the staff has discussed it, and not just once. Then-manager Felipe Alou and pitching coach Dave Righetti did it skipped Matt Cain in 2006. In Monday night's loss to the Cubs he allowed five runs in six innings and threw three wild pitches. No pitcher likes to feel the weight of stats like that. Moore's 111 strikeouts rank second on the Giants to Jeff Samardzija's 154. The Giants also need to maintain...

10 years later, Barry Bonds reflects on record-setting HR

Barry Bonds hit his record-breaking 756th home run a decade ago, but pitcher Matt Cain needed just half a heartbeat to download the memory. Monday is the 10th anniversary of the night Bonds passed Hank Aaron to become the all-time home run leader, a moment in which joy, passion, controversy and derision had to coexist. Speaking to The Chronicle on Saturday, Bonds found it hard to grasp that a decade has passed since he broke Aaron’s record, hit his 762nd and final homer at Colorado and coped with the unwanted end to his big-league career in the final days of the 2007 season. In the fifth...

Cain out of Giants’ rotation; Stratton starts Saturday

Cain out of Giants’ rotation; Stratton starts Saturday Matt Cain was removed from the rotation, again. Chris Stratton will take his place and start Saturday against the Diamondbacks. In the final year of his $127.5 million contract, Cain is 3-9 with a 5.37 ERA, and opponents are hitting .312 against him. Getting pulled from the rotation is nothing new for Cain, who lost his starting job last September, making his final 2016 appearances out of the bullpen. “He knows that,” manager Bruce Bochy said. The preference is to keep Cain in the bullpen to give younger starters a look. The...

Giants stunned by Dodgers rookie making his debut in 11-inning loss

The Giants received seven shutout innings from Madison Bumgarner but lost leads in the ninth and 11th innings to fall a stunning 34 1/2 games behind the Dodgers in the NL West.

Giants flip starters — Bumgarner to face Dodgers

LOS ANGELES - When I asked Bruce Bochy on Wednesday if he would use the Thursday off day to get Madison Bumgarner on the mound for the Sunday night game at Dodger Stadium, he looked at me as though I were asking for his Social Security number. No, Bochy said, Matt Cain will pitch Sunday and Bumgarner on Monday night in Oakland. Well, guess what? Bumgarner will face the Dodgers on ESPN's showcase game Sunday. Cain will go Monday in Oakland. And you know what that means: Bumgarner vs.
