Giants might place Nuñez on concussion list

Eduardo Nuñez, the Giants' hottest hitter, might have to go on the concussion disabled list after getting clocked in the first inning of Sunday's 7-1 victory over the Braves. Calixte took batting practice on the field during his holding pattern. Nuñez was woozy after his slide home on a passed ball Sunday. Kurt Suzuki's throw to pitcher R.A. Dickey did hit Nuñez on the helmet, but Nuñez reported a bigger blow to his jaw. Clubhouse manager Brad Grams, fearing that Nuñez might get beaned by a throw, added padding to Nuñez's helmet just before this series. The Giants are hoping...

R.A. Dickey pounded by Giants in 7-1 loss

R.A. Dickey pounded by Giants in 7-1 loss

The Giants were all over R.A. Dickey on Sunday afternoon as the Braves fell by a score of 7-1 Dickey surrendered seven runs (six earned) over six innings of work. He struggled with command of his knuckleball all day while walking five batters and giving up six hits. San Francisco got him for two runs in the first inning, four in the second and then one more in the third. To his credit, he was able to save the bullpen and finish out the next three innings without too much trouble. For all the talk of how bad Bartolo Colon has been, Dickey has arguably been worse. Let’s hope for Lucas Sims...

Bullpen puts together strong week

Bullpen puts together strong week

The Braves bullpen has been a strong point of the club in the last week. Until Sam Freeman allowed a hit in the 7th inning on Tuesday night, the Braves bullpen had completed 17 innings of no-hit baseball since last Thursday’s loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. In that loss, Josh Collmenter hurled a pair of hitless innings after surrendering a hit and Ian Krol finished the game with an inning of work. The following day, Atlanta began a series against the Nationals with a 7-4 win. When starter R.A. Dickey left that game, the game was knotted at 4-4, but the bullpen kept the Nats at bay until a...
