Giants lose in 11; don’t blame Samardzija

Jeff Samardzija was the latest pitcher to add to the Giants’ total Wednesday night by yielding three runs in seven innings, but it came in the Giants’ 5-3 loss to the Braves, so what good was it? Hunter Pence’s home run, his second ninth-inning, deficit-overcoming homer on the trip, made it 3-3, giving the Giants hope for their first winning streak since May 27-28. For the third time in the four-game series, a Giants pitcher had a quality start, which is defined by six or more innings and three or fewer earned runs. The Giants are 1-2 in those games, including a Cueto loss in the...

Eduardo Nuñez wants to stay with Giants

Eduardo Nuñez wants to stay with Giants ATLANTA — Third baseman Eduardo Nuñez is hoping for a longer-term relationship with the Giants even though he might be mentioned in trade talk before the July 31 deadline, and even though he’ll be a free agent after the season. The coaches, unbelievable. When you’re around a lot of good players, you want to get better. Nuñez, one of the Giants’ rare threats on the bases, has been slowed with left hamstring tightness and will be examined Friday in San Francisco. If he still has issues, he’ll be placed on the 10-day disabled...

Giants’ Bochy reacts to Maddon’s comments on Posey

ATLANTA --- It has been six years, but Cubs manager Joe Maddon cited Buster Posey’s season-ending collision in 2011 when defending Anthony Rizzo for his part in a collision at the plate in Monday night’s Cubs-Padres game. A day after Rizzo crashed into Padres catcher Austin Hedges, Maddon reiterated that he’s not in favor of Rule 7:13 that was put in place to decrease collisions and protect catchers. “I’m really confused by why it gained so much attention only except for the fact Buster Posey got hurt a couple years ago,” Maddon said Tuesday morning on a Chicago radio...

Giants demote Law, call up Crick

The disappointing Giants, in their most disappionting stretch of one of their most disappointing seasons, demoted reliever Derek Law to Triple-A Sacramento a day after he gave up four runs without retiring a batter. The Giants hope to do better with Kyle Crick, who’s being called up from Sacramento to take Law’s place. Crick, 24, the 49th overall draft choice in 2011, was converted to a reliever after struggling as a starter and had a 2.76 ERA and six saves in 24 outings at Sacramento.

Giants option Derek Law, call up former top pick

SAN FRANCISCO -- There were a couple of years there where Kyle Crick looked like he might turn into abust as a top draft pick.

Crick was called up to the big leagues for the first time.

MLB denies Stricklandin bid to cut 6-game ban

ATLANTA — Hunter Strickland and the Giants finally got word on the relief pitcher’s appeal on his six-game suspension: denied. Strickland will miss the four-game series in Atlanta, which started Monday night, and the first two games of the homestand against the Mets. Strickland’s appeal wasn’t heard until last Tuesday, and his actions were considered more severe than Harper’s by MLB, which suspended the pitcher for “intentionally hitting Harper with a pitch, inciting the bench-clearing incident and fighting.” Asked whether it’s unfair that one person in a fight got his...

Giants lose again; how long will Cueto stick around?

ATLANTA - As the Giants enter the summer months and approach the trade deadline, they’ll be making choices they haven’t had to make for a long time, at least since they started winning championships. Among the scouts in attendance for Monday’s series opener at the new SunTrust Park, won by the Braves 9-0, were those focusing on Cueto, who can opt out after this season from his six-year, $130 million contract. If the Giants believe they’d lose the 31-year-old pitcher — there are no signs he won’t opt out — trading him before the July 31 trade deadline seems logical, especially...
