Astros Series Preview: The Giants are in town

A short mid-week series starts today for the Astros and the Giants. Following an off day on Monday, the Astros hit the field again back home at Minute Maid Park. But this series will be a rather short one as the Giants come into town for two games. Two-game series are weird.

San Francisco Giants Off-Day Notes: Belt, Gorkys, Former Giants

It’s an off-day, giving us time to reflect on some interesting San Francisco Giants notes, including a Player of the Week.

Giants’ red-hot Brandon Belt named NL Player of the Week

Giants’ first baseman Brandon Belt was named the National League Player of the Week on Monday after batting a scorching .444 with five home runs and 11 RBI in his past seven games. Belt also had a .500 on base percentage and 1.074 slugging percentage to complete his slash line for the week. His three-run homer against the Rockies on Sunday — Belt’s 11th of the season — broke a seventh-inning tie to lift the Giants over Colorado. He also made a rare start in left field Sunday as right fielder Andrew McCutchen nursed a minor knee injury. This is...

Giants reliever Moronta overcomes minor left-side injury

Here is one mystery solved. Reliever Reyes Moronta developed soreness in his left oblique, had an MRI and was not available for Thursday night's 12-inning loss to the Rockies. Moronta is fine now and threw a 98-mph fastball on his first pitch Friday night. When Pierce Johnson walked two Rockies in the 12th inning Thursday, manager Bruce Bochy had Cory Gearrin relieve him to face Gerardo Parra. Moronta, if healthy, would have been a better choice because left-handers were hitting over .400 against Gearrin. Gearrin retired Parra, but walked...

Giants get tiebreaking homer from Belt to beat Rockies

Who says the Giants can't develop outfielders? Their homegrown left fielder had quite a Sunday afternoon. Brandon Belt, who started in left field with right fielder Andrew McCutchen unavailable, got his first outfield assist in seven years before accomplishing what he really is paid to do. Belt broke a seventh-inning tie with a three-run homer against Rockies left-hander Jake McGee, Belt's fifth in the past seven games. Nick Hundley followed with his own homer and the Giants won 9-5 after trailing 4-1 to move within two games of first place in the National...

Giants beat Rockies 9-4, three more hits for Brandon Crawford

Brandon Crawford is hoping May lasts forever and June never arrives. Actually, the way the Giants’ shortstop is locked in, he probably believes he can hit all summer. That’s what happens when a guy gets on a roll like this. Every pitch is fat, every swing is picture-perfect. That’s life with Crawford, at least it has been since the clock struck May. On a sunny yet brisk and windy Saturday afternoon in China Basin, the Giants whipped the Rockies, and Crawford led the charge with three more hits including a home run into the arcade that put the game away...
