Robbie Erlin, Padres get win over Giants

The Padres’ Swiss Army Knife pitcher got the win in his second-to-last start of the season. And not due to anything Robbie Erlin did in his five innings of work on Wednesday, it was more likely than not his second-to-last start with the Padres. At least scheduled start, in that it is actually impossible...

Giants’ Bumgarner wants to stay, but knows decision rests with team

SAN DIEGO — As the Giants end another disappointing season and dive into what promises to be a turbulent winter, they finally need to address one of their most critical questions in perhaps decades, which has no easy answer. What are they going to do with pitcher Madison Bumgarner, one of the greatest players to wear the uniform and one of the greatest postseason pitchers in the game’s history? In an interview before the Giants’ game against the Padres on Wednesday night, Bumgarner made his intentions clear. “I’d like to be here,” he said. “I guess it’s a little early to talk...

Giants win on big night for Hunter Pence

SAN DIEGO - Hunter Pence, his days a Giant down to a precious few, is not ambling slowly with a walking stick in hand. He holds a bat that he is determined to wield with the youthful zeal and pop that once made him a feared hitter. The 35-year-old whirling Dervish made that perfectly clear in Tuesday night's 5-4 victory at Petco Park, which ensured the Giants will win the season series against the last-place Padres. In two at-bats against East Bay native Joey Lucchesi, Pence homered, doubled, drove in three runs and stole a base. Only two other Giants, Ray Durham and Andrew McCutchen, had...

Giants tax Padres' pen after Lucchesi's exit

In jumping from Double-A San Antonio to the majors, Joey Lucchesi counts a team-leading 131 strikeouts, eight wins and a rotation-best 3.74 ERA among his rookie highlights. There remains room for improvement. Priority No. 1: Pitch efficiency. Take, for example, Tuesday’s start in a 5-4 loss to...
