Matt Moore comes within one out of history as Giants avoid sweep at Dodger Stadium

LOS ANGELES – The Giants did not pay a small fortune for Matt Moore solely so he could beat the Dodgers. They saw a left-handed pitcher with the kind of emerging stuff that wouldn’t be available on the free-agent market, no matter the cost. A club-friendly contract through 2019 only added to his allure.   But the Giants knew there would be an immediate fringe benefit: The Dodgers...

Giants notes: It's on Matt Moore to prove his worth in a pennant race, Peavy to start Saturday, Dodgers make a chemistry-altering trade, etc.

LOS ANGELES – The Giants don’t have the first foggy notion about the identity of their fifth starter in September. But they know they will have an expanded roster, and more choices.   They must use a No.5 pitcher once, on Saturday against the Atlanta Braves, before rosters expand. And Giants manager Bruce Bochy confirmed that Jake Peavy would get that assignment.   There are...

San Francisco Giants: Breaking out of the breakdown

The San Francisco Giants have been the worst team since the All-Star break. That’s not just me being cynical again, the numbers back it up.

They are 27th in runs scored, 29th in home runs, 29th in OPS (On-Base % + Slugging %), and 22nd in WAR (Wins-Above-Replacement). So what...

Bumgarner gives up grand slam, hits HR in same inning

Madison Bumgarner without question is one of better slugging pitchers in Major League Baseball in recent history, if not the very best. The San Francisco Giants ace’s prowess at the plate was on full display during Thursday’s 10-7 win over the New York Mets, although it probably didn’t play out they way Bumgarner would have scripted it.
