5/23/2015 | Vogelsong defies history at Coors Field

Ryan Vogelsong continued his ascent Friday, blanking the Colorado Rockies on two singles for six innings as the Giants roared to an 11-8 triumph.

5/22/2015 | Giants relievers don't pine for starting roles

The Giants' plan to use all relievers in Saturday's second half of their day-night doubleheader against the Colorado Rockies begged a question: Though Yusmeiro Petit will start the game for the Giants, did any of his bullpen mates wish they could get the ball at the game's outset instead? None of the Giants quizzed sounded especially envious of Petit.


5/22/2015 | Strickland to join Giants for doubleheader

Right-hander Hunter Strickland, who made 17 appearances for the Giants late in the regular season and in the postseason last year, will join the club for Saturday's day-night doubleheader against Colorado.

Perhaps the individual least impressed with Tim Hudson's performance in the Giants' 2-0 win over the National League West-rival Dodgers on Tuesday night was Hudson himself.


5/20/2015 | Giants showcasing adaptability

5/20/2015 | Anderson, Dodgers look to even series vs. Giants

There's no rain in the forecast, so Brett Anderson will try to be as effective with a dry baseball as he was with a slippery one his last two times out when the Dodgers try to even their three-game series with the Giants on Wednesday in San Francisco.


5/20/2015 | Hudson leads combined shutout vs. Dodgers

Tim Hudson ended a mini-slump with an effectively stubborn 6 1/3-inning performance, and Buster Posey delivered a key run with a third-inning single Tuesday night as the Giants beat the Dodgers, 2-0, despite a solid start from Carlos Frias.


5/19/2015 | Ishikawa's return will require a difficult decision

5/18/2015 | Parallels link McCovey, Pence through years

5/17/2015 | Bochy has outfield logjam, but players 'unselfish'
