Giants lose Belt but beat Padres on Crawford’s 10th-inning hit

After George Kontos got two outs with the go-ahead run at third in the top of the 10th, Matt Duffy hit a one-out single off lefty Brad hand. A wild pitch moved Duffy to second before Crawford blasted a two-strike pitch to the base of the center-field wall, completing the Giants' third sweep of the Padres this year. Belt raced to second and beat a wide throw, but his left foot got caught in the dirt and he turned the ankle. Jake Peavy shepherded carried a shutout into the seventh inning and and was in line for the win when Yangervis Solarte tied the game 3-3 with a two-out, two-run homer...

Game 48 Thread: May 25 vs. Reds, 7p

“But the mean reds are horrible. You're afraid and you sweat like hell, but you don't know what you're afraid of. Except something bad is going to happen, only you don't know what that is.” Scott Kazmir (3-3, 5.23) vs. Dan Straily (2-1, 2.85). So said Truman Capote in "Breakfast at Tiffany's". Look, it's hard to be afraid of a 15-31 team, and the Dodgers certainly have been out to a good start in this series against the Reds (taking the first two games). But tonight, we throw Kazmir, whose last start (against the Padres) was so pathetic, even Kenley Jansen couldn't come in to salvage...

Red Sox 10, Rockies 3: Sox stumble their way to another blowout win

Red Sox 10, Rockies 3: Sox stumble their way to another blowout win

It wasn't always pretty, but the Red Sox just casually scored ten again to blow out the Rockies. Sometimes games are just ugly. Fielders bobble balls, catchers don't catch, opposing baserunners run amok, and in the worst case, you can't even keep your starting nine on the field with injuries piling up. That's what happened to the Red Sox tonight. They won by seven. Sometimes the knuckleball can just be too tough for its own good. Wright's prime offering was moving all over the place, even in seemingly impossible ways, and Ryan Hanigan just was having none of it. Wright recorded three...

Sanchez appreciates fans’ applause

Sanchez appreciates fans’ applause The afterglow of a World Series championship seems to last a long time. Catcher Hector Sanchez played a major role as Buster Posey’s backup for two San Francisco title teams, and Giants fans have not forgotten. When Sanchez pinch-hit for San Diego in the ninth inning of Tuesday night’s 8-2 Giants victory at AT&T Park, the fans gave him a standing ovation. “To be back here and get the same feeling I had when I was wearing a Giants uniform is pretty special,” Sanchez said Wednesday. The Giants let Sanchez go last season because other catchers...

Dodgers 8, Reds 2 - Cincinnati struggles in yet another loss

Oof. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Adam Duvall came to the Cincinnati Reds as a hopeful late-bloomer prospect, a 26 year old who had never really had a shot in the big leagues yet had busted brains with a power bat in the minors.  So far, 2016 has been exactly what the Reds were hoping for in/re Duvall, as the LF has smacked extra-base hit after extra-base hit, and Tuesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers was no different. Duvall blasted a 2-run dinger - the only runs the Reds would score on the evening - and that was plenty good enough to take home yet another JNMHSotG...
