Maybe it’s the camera angle, but this clip of San Francisco Giants third baseman Eduardo Núñez snagging Carlos Asuaje’s popup in foul territory is very entertaining.
Yasiel Puig and Madison Bumgarner got into it last night, prompting a team-wide scuffle and the eventual, inevitable Giants collapse after Bumgarner left the game with one hit through seven innings. Thankfully this happened on the first night of a three-game series, so tonight and tomorrow should be pretty spicy.
Madison Bumgarner got Yasiel Puig to ground out to end the seventh inning tonight in a close one between the Giants and Dodgers. As Bumgarner walked back to the dugout, he and Puig exchanged pleasantries, which prompted Bumgarner to reverse course, and take it to Puig’s chest (these two have an adversarial history…
Over the weekend, the Giants bumbled into a series split with the Cardinals by losing the last two games of the series with the ultimate combination to kill any baseball team’s playoff aspirations: Poor relief pitching and impotent offense.
A security guard who attempted to apprehend an Idiot On The Field last night in San Francisco during the Cardinals-Giants game suffered what appears to be a broken leg during the takedown attempt.
The San Francisco Giants have been slumping for most of the second half of the season, going 17-31 since the All-Star break and tumbling well behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West. Nobody connected to the team seems very happy; the Giants called a hitters-only meeting, Bruce Bochy is getting every lineup…
Matt Moore, who was traded to the Giants earlier this month from the Tampa Bay Rays, took a no-hit bid as close as he possibly could before it got dashed at the last second. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Corey Seager sent a flare into right field on Moore’s 133rd pitch. It landed squarely between Gorkys…
With the game tied 7-7 in the 11th inning, Buster Posey made it from first to third on a Brandon Crawford single. He also tried to eat third base in the process.
You know how sometimes it’s awful to watch another person put in a contact lens? Here’s Hunter Pence fouling a ball off his own eye. He finished the at-bat afterward, incredibly, though with a strikeout.
Yesterday, the San Francisco Giants traded third baseman Matt Duffy to the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for starting pitcher Matt Moore. Unfortunately, Duffy’s extremely large cat, Skeeter, is not cut out for the sweltering Florida climate.
What’s the most embarrassing way to lose a baseball game? An extra-innings walk-off balk has certainly got to be up there, and that’s precisely how the Giants lost to the Padres last night, when Santiago Casilla stumbled about the mound trying to throw a pitch.
It is a testament to Buster Posey’s abilities that he didn’t nail Jake Peavy in the head on this throw during Saturday’s game.
For the record, baseball gloves tend to perform better as catching devices.
Look at this photo of Ángel Pagán doing a cool jump to rob Erik Kratz of a dinger. You think he got it? He did not.
A skateboarding man and his dog cruised around the park during Monday’s San Francisco Giants game—or was it a skateboarding dog and his man?
Last night, Giants first baseman Brandon Belt launched a home run into the bay just beyond his home ballpark’s right-field fence. These homer are known as Splash Hits in San Francisco, and the team keeps track of how many have been hit with a big counter on the outfield wall. Belt’s dinger was the 69th Splash…
The San Francisco Giants play in a lovely bayside ballpark, with McCovey Cove and the Pacific Ocean (sort of) just feet past the right field wall. This nautical branch of the ballpark is famous for its flocks of boats, as well as the Splash Hit. There’s a big counter on the outfield wall of how many dingers have…
Throughout his highly-publicized rehab from hip surgery this past offseason, former ace Tim Lincecum was clear on one thing: He was working hard to come back as a starter, despite the moderate success he’d found pitching out of the bullpen for the Giants in several stints since the 2012 playoffs.
In the top of the fifth inning of today’s game against the Braves, Giants ace Madison Bumgarner came to the plate with no outs, a man on first, and the scored tied at zero. Almost every other pitcher in the majors would have been asked to lay down a bunt in that situation, but Bumgarner isn’t like most pitchers.…
