Giants place Pagan on disabled list, add outfielder

Giants place Pagan on disabled list, add outfielder If you drive to or from Sacramento in the coming days, you better see Caltrans workers installing signs identifying Interstate 80 as the Parker-Williamson Highway. Outfielders Jarrett Parker and Mac Williamson probably know every bathroom and fast-food stop along the was as they have shuttled back and forth. Williamson has been up and down twice and the Giants on Tuesday recalled Parker for the second time to replace Angel Pagan, who went on the 15-day disabled list after aggravating his hamstring strain Monday night. Sadly for the...

Giants and their fans still enjoying the Johnny Cueto honeymoon

Giants and their fans still enjoying the Johnny Cueto honeymoon There was a humorously absurd moment in the clubhouse after Johnny Cueto pitched a 1-0 shutout against the Padres on Monday night. After Venezuelan-born journalist Manolo Hernandez Douen asked a question in Spanish, Higueros began repeating the question in English - looking straight at Cueto as he said the words. When reporters started to laugh, Cueto cracked a huge smile. In 10 starts Cueto already has three complete games, all against the Padres. Much can happen before then, good and bad but during his ongoing honeymoon...

Run in 9th enough as Giants beat Padres 1-0

With Brandon Belt on first base and two outs in the ninth inning of a scoreless game, Hunter Pence dragged his achy hamstring to home plate, hit a high fly to right and jogged to first as everyone inside the yard starting thinking “10th inning.” Johnny Cueto pitched his second consecutive complete game, both against the Padres, and his third against San Diego overall. The Giants improved to 7-0 against the Padres this season and won for the 11th time in 12 games, their only loss against reigning Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta. Angel Pagan appeared to reinjure his hamstring busting up the...

Giants could have reliever Romo back next week

Giants could have reliever Romo back next week The bullpen has weathered Sergio Romo's near-seasonlong absence because right-handers Cory Gearrin and Hunter Strickland have covered the loss fairly well. Through Sunday the Giants were 22-2 when leading after six innings and 22-3 after seven.

Giants notes: Hunter Pence nears a return, Bochy targets a date to activate Sergio Romo, etc.

SAN FRANCISCO – Hunter Pence’s oratory skills are well documented.

Giants beat Cubs 1-0 behind Madison Bumgarner's pitching, hitting and a handful of defensive gems from his teammates

SAN FRANCISCO _ As usual, Madison Bumgarner was mad. This time, at himself. Mad because he failed to get down a sacrifice bunt in the fifth inning. Mad because he walked Anthony Rizzo in the eighth. As the Giants discovered… Continue Reading → The post Giants beat Cubs 1-0 behind Madison Bumgarner's pitching, hitting and a handful of defensive gems from his teammates appeared first on Giants Extra.

Bumgarner leads Giants with arm, bat

San Francisco ace pitched 72/3 shutout innings and drove in the lone of run of a 1-0 win over the Chicago Cubs

Giants capture series against Cubs behind Bumgarner’s arm, bat

The Chicago Cubs grabbed their gaudy record and left town Sunday night, not to see the Giants again until four games at Wrigley just before Labor Day. The first act, a three-game series at AT&T Park, certainly was, and it ended with an old-style 1-0 Giants victory. Madison Bumgarner pitched 7 2/3 shutout innings and drove in the run with a double. The Giants won for the 10th time in 11 games and handed the Cubs their only consecutive road losses of the season to capture the series. Bumgarner also got hot as a firecracker when manager Bruce Bochy pulled him after a two-out walk to Anthony...

Giants’ Bochy has no plans to pull struggling Peavy from rotation

Giants’ Bochy has no plans to pull struggling Peavy from rotation Bruce Bochy could not have been clearer had he stood on the AT&T Park roof and yelled it through a bullhorn: The Giants have no plans to remove Jake Peavy from the rotation, and the manager believes Peavy will come around as Matt Cain has. A writer asked Bochy before Sunday's game how long a leash Peavy has. Peavy has had more than a few hiccups, evidenced by an 8.21 ERA and 1.90 WHIP in nine starts. To Bochy's point, Cain had a 7.84 ERA and 1.71 WHIP before a run of three good starts, including Saturday's victory...
