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

Giants to promote Michael Morse, seek fewer cell flashes

Hey, atmosphere, if I wanted to live in bloody Seattle I would have moved to bloody Seattle. Morse would have made the team in spring training over Chris Marrero had he not injured a hamstring in one of the final exhibitions. Morse, of course, was a hero of the 2014 World Series title team with his tying homer in Game 5 of the NLCS against St. Louis, which the Giants won in the next inning on Travis Ishikawa’s walkoff homer. Morse did not play for most of 2016 and got an invite at Hunter Pence’s wedding to take a crack at playing again this year. A major-league source told me that...

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...

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...

Michael Morse, Kelby Tomlinson called up

The Giants placed Brandon Crawford on the bereavement list and Denard Span on the 10-day DL, and they brought back some old friends.

The Giants recalled the outfielder/first baseman, and he will roam the vast outfield prairies of AT&T Park once again. He will replace Denard Span, who was placed on the 10-day DL, retroactive to April 23. Morse will be joined by old friend Kelby Tomlinson, recalled from Sacramento to replace Brandon Crawford,...
