On SF Giants podcast with Daniel Dullum:

#1 Daniel, just to review a bit as the season winds down the Giants Joey Bart hit .217, 31 runs, 53 hits, and 11 home runs and 23 RBIs. He did get sent down during the season to fix his hitting and also got a concussion when he was hit by a foul tip. How did you see his performance this season?

#2 How much did Brandon Belt’s absence impact the Giants. Belt had knee surgery that forced him out for the rest of season. How much was he missed from the line up?

#3 Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford is really impressed by the job that Thairo Estrada did at second base.

#4 Crawford himself had a nice season on defense making barehanded plays on choppers, making a diving back hand play and throwing off his right knee to get the force play to mention a few of his fine defensive highlights.

#5 Daniel, taking a look at tonight’s starting pitchers for the Rockies righthander Ryan Feltner (3-8, 5.91) and starting for the Giants Carlos Rodon (13-8, 2.98) a 6:45pm PDT first pitch.

Not Mailing It In: Giants top the Rockies 6-3 to avoid post-season elimination

By Morris Phillips

SAN FRANCISCO–The streaking Giants aren’t just winning games, they’re also setting the table for 2023.

When the off-season’s as anticipated as the Giants, consider it a win-win.

Four different Giants, including rookie Ford Proctor, had run-scoring hits in a 6-3 win over the Rockies on Wednesday night. The Giants have won 8 of 9 and still have (slim) post-season possibilities with seven games remaining in the season.

The Giants trail the sixth-seeded Phillies by 6 1/2 games, and would have to leapfrog the Brewers as well in an almost impossible finish, but the door’s open as is the possibility they could finish .500 or better with their record at 77-78.

It’s been more than a month since the Giants have held a non-losing record with that being on August 23, after they beat the Tigers in Detroit to get to 61-61.

The Giants fashioned a bullpen game gem, starting with John Brebbia pitching a scoreless first inning for the ninth, straight time in his sometimes role as the opener. Sean Hjelle followed with four innings of two-hit ball after being recalled earlier in the day from Triple-A Sacramento as the corresponding move to Jarlin Garcia being placed on the paternity list.

That performance earned Hjelle his first Major League win and a sticky, concoction celebration from his teammates.

“I think there was one beer mixed in there, too,” Hjelle said of what substances where poured on his head in the clubhouse. “It was great. I’m gonna feel gross for a couple of days.”

The 31-year old Shelby Miller was the other Giant to throw multiple innings, pitching the sixth and seventh. He was sharp, starting all six batters he faced with a strike and fanning five.

“He’s getting opposing hitters comfortable looking for a slider and then delivering a really quality strike with his fastball,” manager Gabe Kapler said of Miller.

Tyler Rogers and Yunior Marte also pitched an inning as the Giants held the Rockies to just four hits. The evening served as another hint that the answers to the team’s bullpen woes could be already in the clubhouse. In the last three weeks, Scott Alexander, Alex Young and Miller have been impressive while Brebbia and Camilo Doval have continued their outstanding seasons.

The Giants scored three runs in the first off Colorado’s Jose Urena, who gave up four hits, four walks and took the loss. The Rockies narrowed the deficit to 3-2 on Alan Trejo’s solo shot in the fifth. But the Giants responded, scoring three times in the sixth. Proctor’s first big league RBI came on a sacrifice fly scoring David Villar. Joc Pederson’s two-run triple later in the inning finished the scoring for the Giants.

On the Giants podcast with Michael:

#1 Giants outfielder Joc Pederson said “your either in the playoffs or your not and when your in the playoffs anything could happen.” Pederson was not with the team last season when they won 107 games but how disappointing has it got to for Pederson not be on a playoff team this season.

#2 Pederson who hit a homer on Tuesday night said he got under the pitch and it just got out. Pederson said it got out because he’s pretty strong.

#3 Pederson said in the post game show Tuesday that he enjoyed the 2022 season being with the Giants and won’t see this same group together again.

#4 Pederson also said that with the last six games left he could look forward to coming back next season work hard and find a way to get back in the playoffs.

#5 Michael, Thursday’s starters for the Rockies Ryan Feltner right hander (3-8, 5.91) and for the Giants Carlos Rodon (13-8, 2.98) a 6:45p PDT first pitch at Oracle Park.

Giants get three run win 5-2 past Rockies to open 3 game series; Webb strikes out seven hitters

San Francisco (76-78). 5. 9. 0

SAN FRANCISCO–Baseball presents many interesting ethical questions. Take gambling, for instance. Pete Rose was banished from organized ball for betting on his own team to win but not for deliberately maiming Ray Fosse in an all star game, basically an exhibition game.

Yet today you can place a bet online in major league stadiums where state law permits it, and a team that bills itself as “Rooted in Oakland” is threatening, with MLB’s blessing, to pull up its roots and move to Las Vegas.

Teams aren’t supposed to cheat, but it’s sometimes difficult to distinguish between sportsmanship and gamesmanship. No one was punished for the New York Giants’ sign stealing spree of August and September, but Houston’s 2019 malfeasance cost the entire coaching staff their jobs.

Catchers are praised for their ability to “frame” a pitch. Teams are supposed to do all that they can to win every game they play, but it’s perfectly legitimate to have an ace pitcher skip his turn so that he can be used against a more powerful opponent.

Baseball’s unwritten rules even mandate going easy on a moribund opponent. And then, there’s the draft. If a few teams with no playoff hopes face each other near the end of the season, why should they knock themselves out to win when all they would get from it is a lower draft choice?

This last question arises because Your San Francisco Giants (75-78 at game time) were facing the 65-88 Colorado Rockies tonight. The teams aren’t immediate rivals for the number one draft pick, but a win wouldn’t benefit either organization’s plans for its future personnel.

The game, a 5-2 win for San Francisco was a hard fought contest that went down to the wire without being affected in spite of the ambivalence of its results.

The Giants sent Logan Webb with his 14-9, 2.93 record to the mound, and the Rockies countered with Germán Márquez (8-12, 5.15). Both of them are right handers. When they finished their work for the evening, Logan was the winning pitcher, 2.90. Márquez was charged with the loss and ended up at 8-13,5.12

The Giants’ righty got off to a rocky start but settled down as the game advanced. He lasted only five innings but held the Rox to a single tally, which was earned, on five hits, three of them in the first inning. He walked one and threw 78 pitches, 27 of which were balls.

Colorado’s Márquez lasted five frames, in which he yielded three runs, all earned, on six hits, two for the distance, a walk, and a wild pitch. 57 of his 91 offerings counted as strikes.

The Rockies jumped ahead early, forcing Logan to throw 27 pitches to the six batters he faced in the first. They were able to convert singles by RyanMcMahon, CJ Cron, and Charlie Blackmon into a run.

The home team gave as good as it got, going ahead in the bottom of the frame. Joc Pederson slammed Márquez’s first offering 390 feet to dead center field for his 23rd homerun and 67th RBI of the year.

Thairo Estrada followed with a hard grounder to short that got past Ezequiel Tovar and could have been ruled an error, but it. went into the record as a double. Estrada advanced to third on Wilmer Flores’s foul fly to right (great catch by Michael Toglia) and scored on Mike Yastrsemski’s sac fly to medium deep center field.

JD Davis took Márques deep, 434 feet deep to be precise, over the Visa advertisement in right enter field to put SF up 3-1 with his 11 dinger of the season.It came on an 0-1 pitch that if it weren’t a hung slider when ite reached the plate, sure was one when Davis hung it out to dry.

The Giants still were leading 3-1 when Tyler Rogers came out of the bullpen to face the Blake Street Bombers in the top of the sixth. The high spin right handed submariner set them down in order and stuck around for the seventh, in which he allowed a single and nothing else.

Jake Bird took over for Márquez for the home seventh and wasn’t as successful as Rogers. The Rockies’ righty gave up a single to Joey Bart, followed by Pederson’s hard liner down the first base line that hit the bag and went into right field for a run-scoring triple. Pederson then came home on Estrada’s single to right.

Southpaw Scott Alexander pitched the top of the eighth for SF and retired the Rockies to a conga beat.

It was Gavin Hollowell on the mound for the Rox in the home eighth. All the Giants got off him was a base on balls to Crawford.

And then it was Camilo Doval, on the hump, hoping to seal the deal. Charlie Blackmon led off with a slow grounder to third. Jason Vosler made a fine backhanded catch of it behind the bag, but his throw ws nowhere near in time to nab Blackmon, who arrived at first, credlited, correctly, with a base hit.

Díaz got a four pitch free pass. Toglia grounded out two to first, moving both runners up a base, and a walk to Sean Bouchard loaded the bases, putting Ezequiel Tovar up as the potential tying run.

Doval whiffed him on a slider, Alan Trejo now in the game as second baseman and batting ninth, singled to left, which plated Blackmon and narrowed the gap between the teams to 5-2. The count went to 2-2 on McMahon before he went down swinging at a 102 mph cut fastball.

José Ureña (3-7, 5.34) will be on the mound for Colorado at 6:45 tomorrow evening. The Giants. haven’t yet announced who will be their starter.

The Giants bullpen scattered 10 hits with one walk in the combinerd shutout.

Starter Jose Urela (3-7) gave up the first two San Francisco runs in 5 2/3 innings and took the loss for Colorado.

The Giants went ahead to stay in the top of the first when Yastrzemski doubled, moved to third on a passed ball and scored on Pederson’s two-out single to center.

In the top of the fifth, Yastrzemski homered to right, making it 2-0. The Giants extended their lead to 3-0 in the seventh when Luis Gonzalez reached on an infield single, moved to second on Joey Bart’s groundout, and scored on Wade’s single to center.

The Giants open a three-game weekend series in Phoenix Friday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Game time is 6:40 p.m.

Tuesday, September 20, 2022

The San Francisco Giants, behind s timely nine-hit attack and a solid effort from the bullpen, defeated the Colorado Rockies 6-3 Tuesday at Coors Field in Denver.

Tyler Rogers (3-4) picked up the win in relief, throwing two scoreless innings after replacing Giants opener John Brebbia. Sean Hjelle gave up two runs on six hits in four innings, and Thomas Szapucki gave up the other Rockies run in the eighth.

Dodgers score twice in 10th and hold on to win4-3

San Francisco (69-77). 3. 6. 0. 10 innings

Sunday, September 18, 2022

By Lewis Rubman

SAN FRANCISCO–Nothing in the record of Andrew Heaney, who started for Los Angeles in this afternoon’s heart breaking 4-3 Giants loss to the Dodgers in the NL West champions’ warm up for the postseason suggests that he is a Giant killer.

The southpaw, whose overall record for the year was 3-2, 2.84. was 1-3, 6.92 lifetime against San Francisco. He’s faced them twice this year, pitching decently here on August 1 but lasting only four innings, in which he yielded a run on four hits. In his other, most recent start, the Giants got to him for six runs, all earned, on six hits in six innings, handing him his second loss of the season

This afternoon, however, the nine year veteran southpaw turned in an outstanding performance, although as he had in August, Heaney went a mere four innings into the game. He shut the Giants out on two hits and a walk, striking out eight. He threw 65 pitches, of which 44 were strikes. He left with a. 1-0 lead without having lasted long enough to get a decision but did bring his ERA down to 2.66.

On the bump for the slumping hosts was 6-6, 3.48 Alex Cobb. When the Dodgers had gotten through dealing with their hosts, those numbers were unchanged. Cobb, as the Giants game notes never fail to tell us, has expected earned run and fielding independent pitching averages well below his real ones; 3.09 vs. 3.48 and 2.83 vs. 2.88, respectively.

I recognize the importance of statistical analysis, but I put at least as much emphasis on the noun as on the adjective. A statistician is, as the old quip has it, someone who drowns crossing a river that has an average depth of three feet.

Cobb’s performance today was what you’d expect from his real, not expected ERA. The 6’1″,207 lb. righty went 5-1/3 innings, in which he allowed two runs, both earned, which left his ERA where it was when he began, 3.48. He yielded four hits and three walks, throwing 95 pitches, 60 for strikes. He wasn’t involved in the decision, the loss being charged to John Brebbia in relief. He’s now 6-2, 2.90.

From the start, the strong winds off the bay were a frequent problem for whichever team was in the field; Mookie Betts’ game opening windblown fly was Los Angeles’ only hit until the top of the fourth.

Heliot Ramos’s racing catch of Trea Turner’s wind aided fly to deep right in the third and a brief spell of sunshine drew more applause than anything else until Justin Turner’s line drive just over the glove of a leaping Evan Longoria with Freddie Freeman on first and nobody out landed in in left field for an RBI double that put LA ahead 1-0.

A portion of the crowd, which was fairly evenly divided between Dodger and Giant fans, roared its approval. One out later, Ramos made another spectacular catch, this time of Tayce Thompson’s drive to deep right center caused an uproar from the other portion. Then, with Chris Taylor at bat, the clouds burst, the field was inundated, and the game was suspended at 5:15.

Play resumed some 20 minutes later, with Cobb striking Taylor out looking.

Thairo Estrada, leading off for the Giants immediately after the strikeout, stroked the orange and gold’s first safety of the day, a single to right center. David Villar took a called third strike. Then Wilmer Flores smacked an automatic double that would have scored Estrada had it not hopped over the left center field fence at the Konica Minolta advertisement.

A walk to JD Davis loaded the bases with one down.. But Heaney stopped the Giants’ in their tracks, fanning Longoria and Bart on fastballs in the mid 90s.

Fellow portsider Caleb Ferguson relieved Heaney to start the home fifth and yielded a full count leadoff double by Lewis Brinson that flew over the glove of the leaping Max Muncy at third into left field.

Brinson moved up to third with a head first slide on Luis González’s fly out to center and held his base when Heliot Ramos grounded out to third. Estrada then sent a grounder to short on which Trea Turner made a nice play, but his throw to first was high and drew Freeman off the bag, allowing Brinson to score the unearned run that tied the game.

Los Angeles came roaring back in the top of the sixth with a leadoff double to right center by that selfsame Turner. Brinson, whose slide into third had resembled a stumble, seemed to slip in his attempt to get to ball.

Freeman then drove that Turner home with a single to right that put LA back head, 2-1 and brought the other Turner, Justin, to the plate. He hit a hard liner to left that González caught for the first one. But that was enough to end Cobb’s outing. Lefty Scott Alexander took his place on the mound and shut the Dodgers down without further damage in spite of a single by Muncy.

Ferguson gave way to righty Phil Bickford, who disposed of the Giants in the bottom without allowing a base runner.

Alexander pitched to one batter in the seventh, retiring Cody Bellinger on a line drive to Davis at first. Submariner Tyler Rogers put his particular spin on things, retiring Austin Barnes and Mookie Betts out on nine pitches and retiring the side in order in the eighth.

Evan Phillips pitched the home seventh for the visitors. He allowed a single to LaMonte Wade, Jr., hitting for Bart, but struck out his other three adversaries, including Yastrzemski, who hit for Brinson.

Alex Vesia’s first acts on assuming mound duties for Los Angeles in the bottom of the eighth was to walk number nine hitter Ramos and number one hitter Estrada. Pederson made an ill-advised attempt to bunt with two strikes and struck out.

Flores sent Bellinger to the Konica-Minolta sign, where he made a leaping catch of the Giants’ second sacker’s drive for the second out, Ramos taking third on the play. Then Davis tied the game with an automatic double over the right center field fence that brought in Ramos.

After an intentional pass to Longoria that loaded the bases, the rally ended with Wade going down swinging.

Camilo Doval tried to preserve the tie in the top of the ninth. He started off inauspiciously with a four pitch walk to Muncy but recovered to whiff Thompson and Taylor and get Bellinger to fly out to Ramos in right.

Now Craig Kimbrel had to keep the Giants off the board to keep the Dodgers in the game. Yaz popped out to third. Austin Wynns, now the catcher, grounded out to short. Ramos was fooled on an 0-2 knuckle curve and went down swinging for the third out. Kimbrel was the eventual winning pitcher and now. is 5-6, 3.96.

John Brebbia, who started yesterday’s bullpen game, came in to pitch the 10th inning in tonight’s extra inning thriller. Austin Barnes sacrificed zombie runner Bellinger to third, and Betts drove him in by lacing in a double to left.

Trea Turner smacked deep right, on which Ramos made a beautiful catch and a strong throw, but Betts reached third safely. Brebbia granted an intentional walk to Freeman, stole second, and an unintentional. one to Justin Turner to clog the basepaths.

Thomas Szapucki to the rescue! Vain hope! Szapucki walked Muncy, with his BA of .201, to force in the second Dodger tally of the frame and reload the bases. Szkapucki whiffed Thompson to allow San Francisco a reasonable chance of turning things around against Andre Jackson, who had pitched two big league innings so far this season.

Ramos was, of course, the placed baserunner. Jackson walked Estrada. Pederson almost gave the Giants the win with a drive to the portals in right that moved Ramos to third. Flores dropped a single to right that brought in Ramos.

Estrada stopped at second, in scoring position with one down. After an eight pitch at bat, Davis went down swinging for the second out. It now was a battle between Jackson and Longoria. The count went to 3-2 before the Giants’ third baseman walked to load the bases.

Now it was Justin Bruihl the lefty who got the final out in last night’s Dodger win, pitching for them against LaWade, Jr. He drove a 2-2 pitch into McCovey Cove … just a few feet to the right of the foul pole. Then, on a full count, Wade grounded out, first Freeman to Bruihl, who gained his first major league save.

The players of the game today were the grounds crew, who kept the field in playing condition in spite of the repeated soakings it endured.

The Giants move on to Denver tomorrow, where Jakob Junis (4-6, 4.15) will face the Blake Street Bombers, who will counter with Chad Kuhl (6-9, 5.33). Game time is 5:40 pm, Pacific time.
