Mistakes haunt Giants as they blow lead, lose to Brewers

Mistakes haunt Giants as they blow lead, lose to Brewers

SAN FRANCISCO If the Giants were in a different situation, Tuesday nights loss was the kind that really would sting for a few days. As is, it was simply loss No. 77 in a stunningly bad season.The Giants went down 4-3 in somewhat familiar fashion, with their offense failing to break through and their bullpen coming up short. But this loss, No. 77, was also about small mistakes, both mental and physical. Lets count down some of the ways the Giants went down:

No rush for Giants to return Melancon to closer’s role

No rush for Giants to return Melancon to closer’s role

Mark Melancon won’t return to the closer’s role any time soon because it’s more practical for the Giants to monitor him as a setup man, away from the ninth inning. Melancon said he’s fine with how he’s being used. “I’m trying to make sure the team is first,” he said a day after appearing in a second straight game for the first time since coming off the disabled list. It’s not as if Melancon, who signed for $62 million in the offseason, has appeared in low-leverage situations. He pitched a scoreless eighth Monday, retiring the top three...

Giants officially eliminated from the NL West after blowing late lead

The word "spoiler" usually does not enter the baseball conversation in August. Then again, this is not a normal season. So this is where the Giants have landed. With Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Phillies, the Giants were mathematically eliminated from the National League West "race." No team likes to see that notation in the standings, especially for six weeks. The Giants took a 2-1 lead into the eighth, when Hunter Strickland, who had settled nicely into that setup role, allowed three runs on five straight singles. Pedro Florimon's two-run hit to right scored...

Bochy updates status of Belt, Panik in concussion recoveries

The Giants are without the right side of their infield right now due to concussions. So, when will we see them back on the field?

Giants’ Panik ahead of Belt in concussion recoveries

In the "race" between the two right-side infielders to return from concussions, Joe Panik is many furlongs ahead of Brandon Belt. Panik ran sprints on the field and took 50 swings off a tee and soft-toss from a coach Sunday and said if he feels well enough Monday he will take batting practice on the field. Belt remains tethered to the gym, just beginning to do as much cardio work he can tolerate. "With Belt, the best way I can describe it is, he's doing OK," manager Bruce Bochy said. "He's doing cardio up to the point he needs to stop. He's...
