Colorado Rockies continue to struggle, fall to Giants 4-3 in 14 innings

Baseball sucks. Just when you thought this stretch of bad baseball couldn’t get worse, Tuesday night/Wednesday morning proved otherwise. The Rockies fell 4-3 in a miserable 14-inning game. Jeff Hoffman looked good early on, as he retired the first seven batters he faced. He didn't hit his first rough patch until the bottom of the third when he gave up a one-out single to Gorkys Hernandez. Hernandez advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt from Matt Cain, and Denard Span ripped a sharp single to right field to open up the scoring. The run didn't seem to phase Hoffman, though, as he then...

Giants beat Rockies in 14; Span wins it

Gorkys Hernandez hit a one-out double off Chad Qualls, and after Cory Gearrin struck out — yes, Gory Gearrin, the winning pitcher — Span stepped up and collected his third hit in seven at-bats. Six Giants relievers combined for eight scoreless innings (three by Gearrin) after Matt Cain threw the first six. In extra innings, Buster Posey threw out two runners trying to steal, and pitcher Jeff Samardzija was summoned to pinch hit — he struck out to end the 11th. The ball sailed softly into right field to score Belt and put the Giants in position to take the lead, but Jake McGee...

MLB Draft 2017: Giants go with left-handed pitchers in final mock drafts

MLB Draft 2017: Giants go with left-handed pitchers in final mock drafts

There’s D.L. Hall from high school and David Peterson from college, so pick your portsided weapon of choice. The Giants used to be known as the franchise that developed pitching better than almost anyone else. It wasn’t just pitchers like Tim Lincecum and Madison Bumgarner, high first-round picks who didn’t have to be reinvented, either. The relative success of Jonathan Sanchez, Sergio Romo, and Brian Wilson helped that perception, but Matt Cain, Lincecum, and Bumgarner fueled most of it. Since Bumgarner made the Opening Day rotation in 2011, here are the homegrown pitchers who have...

Giants rest left-handed regulars against Twins

Giants rest left-handed regulars against Twins Every so often manager Bruce Bochy will write such a lineup, sometimes in the "what can we lose" mode, sometimes to arrange longer rests for regulars. Joe Panik is still resting his sprained left thumb. The Giants, behind Matt Cain and his 1.82 home ERA, need to win to avoid being swept in a home series for the second consecutive time. Monday is going to be a huge day in Bay Area sports. The Major League Baseball amateur draft begins at 4 p.m. Everybody will be talking about it. The Giants pick 19th in the first round.

MLB Draft 2017: Talkin’ Giants with Christopher Crawford

MLB Draft 2017: Talkin’ Giants with Christopher Crawford

Who will the Giants draft in 2017? And how is last year’s draft looking? The Major League Baseball Rule 4 Draft is on Monday, and it’s kind of a big deal. There isn’t a team in baseball that has conditioned its fans to care more about the draft, from Matt Cain through Christian Arroyo, with some Cy Youngs and an MVP in between. Will this year’s draft include a Cy Young or MVP for the Giants? My guess is that Brendan McKay slips to #19, the Giants get him, and he becomes both. People in the industry disagree with me and are using scouting jargon like “an impossibly dumb...
