Bumgarner pitches well in Giants' 2-1 loss

Bumgarner pitches well in Giants' 2-1 loss

Holding the Colorado Rockies to two runs at Coors Field is normally a cause for celebration. San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner, third from left, is surrounded by teammates after giving up a bunt to Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Franklin Morales (56) during the fourth inning of a baseball game, Tuesday, April 22, 2014, in Denver. Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was given an error on the play. San Francisco Giants' Ehire Adrianza, top, throws to first for a double play over the head of Colorado Rockies' Justin Morneau, bottom, during the fourth inning of a...

SF GIANTS UPDATE: No telling which way the offense will go, but it’s not looking good

PrintPlease do not judge anything you read here as some sort of Pollyanna view, or an attempt to look at the bright side for the Giants. That’s kind of hard to do on a night when their starter pitched a complete game, allowed two runs and lost. That’s been virtually impossible to do at Coors Field....

PREGAME NOTES: Bochy says Belt “looks ready to take it to another level,” could permanently hit third

Brandon Belt is tied for second in the Majors in homers (six) and leads the Giants in OPS (.886), yet he still hits sixth against left-handed pitchers, behind a couple of slumping hitters. That might change soon, though. Before Tuesday’s… Continue Reading →

Vogelsong, Giants stumble against Rockies

Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong allowed three early home runs and San Francisco couldn't do much right after that in 8-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies

Moribund SF Giants lose game and pitcher at Coors

PrintBy Henry Schulman Denver – Some nights are not about winning or losing, but damage control, knowing you are fishtailing out of control but steering like a madman to keep the car from crashing into a wall. Every team has them. The Giants had their first of 2014 in an 8-2 loss at a carnival funhouse ballpark where understanding damage control is a must. The situation at Coors Field was not too dire when Ryan Vogelsong’s shortest start as a Giant ended after he retired four batters and allowed five runs on three homers. After all, manager Bruce Bochy had eight relievers. The dire part...

PREGAME NOTES: Will slumping right fielder Hunter Pence get a rest day, too? Don’t count on it

Sandoval returns after one-day mental break for SF Giants

PrintPablo Sandoval returns to the lineup for tonight’s one-run game. Nine of the past 10 Giants games have been settled by one run. So have the past seven Giants-Rockies tilts. The Rockies called up former Giant Charlie Culberson today while putting Michael Cuddyer on the DL with a hamstring issue. Buster Posey picked the right time to find his stroke. His .402 average at Coors Field is the highest among active players. He’s hit safely in 25 of 30 games here, including seven home runs. Ryan Vogelsong tries to build off his last start, a six-inning, one-run no-decision against the Dodgers...

Posey powers Giants past Padres

Before Sunday's series finale against the San Diego Padres, Giants manager Bruce Bochy sat hunched over his desk, intently studying a piece of paper with four screenshots of Buster Posey's swing from various seasons. Bochy was looking for some sign of trouble in his slumping star's mechanics but couldn't find a glaring issue.

SF GIANTS UPDATE: Solid bullpen gets a lift with Affeldt’s return, plus Lincecum, Belt notes

PrintIt’s rather amazing to consider the past 10 Giants games have been decided by a total of 11 runs. “Unbelievable, man,” manager Bruce Bochy said after Sunday’s 4-3 victory against the Padres. “I’ve been on a few runs where we’ve played tight games, but never like this.” To sustain any kind of success during that kind of run, the bullpen has to be money. Fortunately for the Giants, their relief corps has been Fort Knox. With three shutout innings Sunday, all in a one-run game, the bullpen lowered its majors-leading ERA to 1.79, with 15 walks and 48 strikeouts, a 6-2 record...

Padres lose 4-3 to Giants, still win series

The San Diego Padres are one game under .500 three weeks into the season, not bad considering that they lost six of their first nine games.

San Diego Padres right fielder Xavier Nady jumps at the fence to make the catch on a long drive hit by San Francisco Giants' Gregor Blanco in the eighth inning of a baseball game Sunday, April 20, 2014, in San Diego.
