Giants ‘limited’ bench due for changes

Giants ‘limited’ bench due for changes ST. LOUIS - The Giants opened their seven-game trip with eight relief pitchers and a four-man bench that includes one guy who only catches (Nick Hundley), another who will play only first base (Michael Morse) and two extra outfielders (Justin Ruggiano and Gorkys Hernandez). The Giants will need to make room for rehabbing players Conor Gillaspie, Aaron Hill and Hunter Pence, perhaps all three sometime next week. Bochy said ideally the Giants will restore a five-man bench at the expense of a current reliever. Left-hander Josh Osich and Mac...

Regulars in lineup continue to scuffle, Giants end up with series split

SAN FRANCISCO The momentum generated by Christian Arroyo and Michael Morse late Wednesday night lasted just a few hours. By the end of this four-game series, the Giants were left with a harsh reality: Even with two injections of new blood, they are not hitting.

Michael Morse is What All San Francisco Giants Fans Needed

No matter how you felt about the San Francisco Giants heading into Wednesday night’s game, all fans were worried at some level about how the team has been playing. Enter Michael Morse. A Giant hero in 2014, Morse returned to the Giants after rehabbing a Spring Training injury in the minor leagues in a big way.

The unsung hero in the Giants’ improbable comeback win

Michael Morse's pinch home run was a spark from the past and Christian Arroyo's first big league homer won't be forgotten, but another Giants player made small and invaluable contributions in Wednesday's win.

Giants’ Christian Arroyo hits first homer in memorable win

Giants’ Christian Arroyo hits first homer in memorable win Christian Arroyo's first big-league homer was not exactly forgotten, but it was sort of pushed to the background when Michael Morse hit his unreal game-tying homer against the Dodgers in the eighth inning of Wednesday night’s 4-3 win. The Dodgers had done the Giants a huge favor by removing lefty Alex Wood after six innings of one-hit ball. Manager Dave Roberts decided to yank him after six innings and 78 pitches. Buster Posey, who admitted it was weird facing Romo on Monday night, lined a single to center to bring up Arroyo,...

Giants come from behind with homers from Christian Arroyo, Michael Morse

The Dodgers were leading 3-0 in the seventh inning. What happened? It’s not that the Giants got crucial home runs from two players who weren’t on the roster last weekend. That sort of thing happens when you roll the roster dice. Sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn’t, and it’s a lot of fun when it does, but it’s almost always going to be more coincidence than destiny. That’s because baseball is almost always going to be more coincidence than destiny. It’s that the Giants got crucial, game-winning home runs from two players who were added to the roster specifically...

Morse’s storybook home run, Arroyo’s first shot lead Giants to unbelievable comeback win

Michael Morse proved you can live in the past, and Christian Arroyo showed a glimmer of a bright future as the Giants erased a 3-0 deficit to win in the 10th.

Giants’ Morse repeats history in thrilling win

In the Giants' thrilling 4-3 comeback victory against the Dodgers on Wednesday night, which ended on Hunter Pence's bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the 10th inning, October, 2014, broke out. Once and new Giant Michael Morse, beginning his comeback after more than a year out of major-league baseball, pinch-hit with one out in the bottom of the eighth and - ridiculously, brazenly -- homered off Pedro Baez to tie the game 3-3. Gorkys Hernandez hit a leadoff single in the 10th off Ross Stripling and stole second without a throw on a 3-1 pitch to Conor Gillaspie, the 2016 postseason homer...

Giants notes: Michael Morse plans to “bring back the fun”

Michael Morse is a Giant again, Denard Span's shoulder took a turn for the worse, and it'll be a few days before the Giants know much about Brandon Crawford's groin injury.

Giants bring Morse back to strengthen bench, lighten mood

Michael Morse grabbed a bat from the rack at AT&T Park and had to laugh at how he got there Wednesday: an all-but retired player making a gentleman's agreement with general manager Bobby Evans at Hunter Pence's wedding to come to spring training on a minor-league deal, to see if he had anything left, with the promise he could leave anytime if he felt he was done. When Denard Span's recovery from a sprain near his right shoulder took a turn for the worse, the Giants placed him on the 10-day disabled list and purchased Morse's contract from Triple-A Sacramento, where he had been rehabbing a...
