Bumgarner, Pence lead SF Giants to third straight win, two-game lead over Dodgers

By Henry Schulman Philadelphia – With the bullpen bedraggled and the skies foreboding, the Giants had the right guy on the mound Wednesday night. Madison Bumgarner was strong enough and good enough to give manager Bruce Bochy the innings he needed. After playing 14 innings and nearly six hours Tuesday night, the Giants and Phillies endured a 59-minute rain delay in the fourth inning of a 0-0 games – not a big deal for the Giants’ biggest, strongest pitcher. Bumgarner rewarded his team with eight shutout innings, and Hunter Pence in turn rewarded his pitcher with a two-out, three-run...

Ready for another long night, SF Giants fans? The forecast and lineup

Thunderstorms in the forecast all night for Philly. Woohoo! Anyhow, manager Bruce Bochy is getting some fresh legs into the lineup tonight behind Madison Bumgarner. Adam Hector Sanchez and Gregor Blanco get the night off. Adam Duvall and Tyler Colvin are in. Colvin is in center field. He’s not pitching. After last night’s eleventh-hour, 240-minute game, Bochy said he thought he could get by with the bullpen he has for tonight’s game. We had thought the Giants might summon someone from Fresno, but it’s the same group in the ‘pen. I’m guessing George Kontos is off. Bochy also said...

Buster Posey hits tying homer in ninth, SF Giants beat Phillies in 14

By Henry Schulman Philadelphia – The last thing the Giants needed after the bullpen went six innings Monday was extra innings. So guess what happened Tuesday night? The baseball gods will have their fun. Actually, the gods had nothing to do with it. Buster Posey did. Posey, who earlier missed a homer by inches, tied the game in the ninth with a solo homer against closer Jonathan Papelbon, who had not surrendered one all year. The game spun into the 14th inning, the longest game of the season, when the Giants won 9-6, with Tim Lincecum getting his first career save. Brandon Crawford broke a...
