A’s Provide BP to Giants in Battle of Bay Opener

By: Lizzie Siegle Do not count the Giants out or write them off. At the All Star Break, they had fallen to four and a half games behind the first-place Dodgers. Since July twelfth, the Giants are 6-1, scoring 37 runs in seven games. Over a quarter of those runs came in their 9-3 victory over the A’s Friday night at home, kicking off a 3-game Battle of the Bay. Friday’s win…

Unable to Back Up Heston, Giants’ Loss Offers Few Surprises

By: Lizzie Siegle As if being swept in two consecutive away series was not enough, the Giants decided to fly cross-country back to San Francisco on game day. After last night’s game and this morning’s early flight, they played like they were tired. In the third inning, Giants pitcher Chris Heston failed to check if Brandon Belt was covering first base, and attempted to pick-off the Mets’ Curtis Granderson. Belt,…

Ejections Sum up Nats’ Sweep of Giants

By: Lizzie Siegle. There are many things that the San Francisco Giants can control, but ejections, a major factor in their 3-1 loss to the Washington Nationals tonight, were not one of them. Angel Pagan started the game off offensively stronger than yesterday, singling in game’s first at-bat. From the number three spot, Buster Posey followed up with another hit, giving Giants fans hope that this game would end positively….

Nationals Dominate Early in 9-3 Win Over Giants

By: Lizzie Siegle. Follow @lizziepika// A lot of things went wrong for the Giants in their 9-3 loss to the Nationals in Washington, DC(which was, for the most part, decided in the first three batters for Washington) but the general absence of Giants’ hits did not help their case. Washington started out swinging right from the get-go in the first inning, smashing two homers, a double, and a single to…

Signing Nick Markakis Would Be a Mistake for the Giants

December 3, 2014

By: Ben Leonard The Giants, along with the Braves and the Blue Jays, are purportedly contenders for the services of veteran outfielder Nick Markakis. He had dinner on Monday night with top Braves’ officials, including manager Fredi Gonzalez. He grew up in Georgia, so the Braves may be a home-town choice for the outfielder. However, if the Giants truly have interest, they would likely be able to pay more for…

Giants Win World Series For Third Time In Five Years; Bumgarner Is MVP

By: Apurv Baichwal The Giants have been known as the Torture since 2010. They always seem to string games and series out to the very end, and they possess an uncanny ability to put themselves in the worst positions yet still win. After being shutout and completely dominated 10-0 yesterday, the Giants came back strong to win this game, and the World Series, 3-2. Simply making the World Series for…

Royals Slaughter Giants To Earn Game 7

October 28, 2014

By: Apurv Baichwal Ouch. Today’s game was bad, and there’s really not too much to be said about it. The Giants got shutout 10-0, in Game Six of the World Series. Fortunately, they were up 3-2 before today, so today’s game can simply be forgotten. Peavy had a pretty awful day by statistics, as he only lasted 1.1 innings, and he gave up five earned runs on six hits and…

Bumgarner Masterful As Giants Capitalize on Royals’ Miscues

October 26, 2014

By: Apurv Baichwal Madison Bumgarner has carried the Giants through this season, and he has been especially essential during this postseason. He has risen through the ranks of Cy Young winners Tim Lincecum, Jake Peavy, and Matt Cain to feature himself as the ace of the rotation. He is only 25 years old, yet he is pitching in his third World Series already. His composure and poise on the mound are…

Royals Hitters Capitalize On The Bullpen’s Poor Performance To Even The Series

October 22, 2014

By: Apurv Baichwal Talk about reversing trends. After everything went so well yesterday for the Giants, they had the exact opposite results today. Instead of winning 7-1, like they did yesterday, they instead lost 7-2 today, mainly due to rookie Hunter Strickland not being able to pitch well. This loss also marked the Giants first World Series loss in seven games. The game also was the second World Series where…

Royals Cannot Pitch; Bumgarner Can; Giants Take Game One

October 21, 2014

By: Apurv Baichwal Today’s game marked the beginning of a World Series that should be a close one, filled with long, gruesome, nail-biters. This series is supposed to be a battle between the two best teams in baseball, and for this reason the games should be tight to the very end. This year, the World Series should be even more legendary, because both of the teams came into the postseason from…
