Fifth inning goes awry for Reynolds, Giants

To say that Friday night's fifth inning didn't proceed as planned for the Giants was an understatement. They scored twice in the top of the inning to shave the difference to one run. Then came the Padres' half of the fifth, which didn't end until they scored four runs to seal their 7-2 triumph over San Francisco.

At least the Giants didn’t whiff on their expensive starting pitchers last offseason

The Giants had a lot of options last offseason, and they could have done something extraordinarily silly. Everything worked out. On Thursday, Jeff Samardzija pitched one of his finest games as a Giant, mowing through the Padres and keeping his team close enough to win late. He’s been on a roll lately, with a 2.40 ERA over his last nine starts. He’s been worth about three wins...

Giants snap surprising losing streak against Padres; pitching finally holds an opponent in check and in spite of another limp offensive performance.

Jeff Samardzija was near-brilliant, the Giants' offense was near-absent, the relief pitching was a near-disaster, but at the end of the day, the Giants are still near the playoffs. It is highly unlikely that you sat through the 8th and 9th innings of tonight's 1-run game and felt as confident about the Giants' chances of winning as you would've had this been a game in June or even...

Giants' Cueto could miss next start because of groin strain

LOS ANGELES (AP) Giants pitcher Johnny Cueto could miss his next scheduled start because of a groin strain. The right-hander had an MRI on Wednesday that confirmed a Grade 1 strain, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

WATCH: Is Madison Bumgarner a bully?

Once again Madison Bumgarner has found a reason to flip his lid as his recent dustup with Yasiel Puig started up due to Puig's "looking" at Bumgarner.

Why the San Francisco Giants are on the verge of a historical collapse

It’s not supposed to be this hard for the Giants in an even-numbered year. However, San Francisco is holding on for its postseason life with 11 games remaining on its schedule.Winners of the 2010, 2012 and 2014 World Series, the Giants are in danger of making some dubious history.

Jeff Samardzija throws some major shade Tim Tebow’s way

As a Major League Baseball pitcher and former All-American receiver at Notre Dame, Jeff Samardzija can certainly be labeled a two-sport athlete. That makes him a natural person to ask about former NFL player Tim Tebow and his quest to play in Major League Baseball. Samardzija was asked such a question Tuesday. His response could definitely be labeled as salty. Asked Jeff Samardzija...

Time to erase the unwritten rules of baseball

Sport fan or not, anyone visiting New York City needs to visit New Yankee Stadium. Not only does it serve...

Did The Giants’ Even-Year Luck Just Run Out?

After Tuesday’s stunning ninth-inning loss to the Padres, you have to wonder: is this the end of the line for San Francisco's improbable even-year dominance? The Giants outmuscled San Diego in extra-base hits, Albert Suarez threw five innings of one-run ball for the first time this season, and SF held a 4-1 lead over the worst offense in baseball heading into the ninth inning...

San Francisco Giants: The case against Santiago Casilla

On Tuesday night, San Francisco Giants closer Santiago Casilla did his job in the bottom of the ninth to save a narrow yet necessary 3-2 victory against the Colorado Rockies. For a closer, that’s expected. For Casilla this year, that’s uncharacteristic.
