8/27/2016 | Pipeline preview: De Leon looks to rack up more K's

Here's a look at top prospects to watch in Sunday's Minor League action.

8/27/2016 | Folty's stellar start drops Giants two games back

Matt Kemp launched a three-run home run deep over the center-field fence and Mike Foltynewicz continued his mastery of the Giants this year as the Braves halted San Francisco's brief winning streak with a 3-1 victory Saturday.

8/27/2016 | Bumgarner brings strong history vs. Braves to finale

Madison Bumgarner will attempt to improve the Giants' postseason hopes and extend his success against the Braves as he opposes Aaron Blair on Sunday afternoon at AT&T Park. San Francisco's ace has posted a 4.20 ERA in five August starts, but he has allowed one run or fewer in five of his past seven starts against Atlanta.

8/27/2016 | Peavy placed on 15-day disabled list

Expected to start in place of Matt Cain, Jake Peavy was put on the 15-day disabled list Saturday because of a lower back strain. Albert Suarez was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento and started in the Giants' 3-1 loss to the Braves.

8/27/2016 | Crawford's glove shines in victory over Braves

Jeff Samardzija said he just played according to the game plan Friday night, allowing myriad Atlanta Braves batters to hit the ball to Brandon Crawford's area of the field. That plan continues to work for the Giants, as the shortstop seamlessly made a defensive stop on every ball that came his way in San Francisco's 7-0 win at AT&T Park.

8/27/2016 | McKenzie, Borucki among top prospect performers Friday

Fans in attendance for Friday's matchup between Class A Lake County and Lansing were treated to a pitchers' duel between starters Triston McKenzie and Ryan Borucki, who combined for 11 scoreless innings and 18 strikeouts.

8/26/2016 | Peavy returns to Giants' rotation to face Braves

Pushed to the bullpen because of the acquisition of Matt Moore, Giants right-hander Jake Peavy will now fill the rotation spot created by Matt Cain's back injury. The right-hander will make his first start since July 30 when he opposes Atlanta's Mike Foltynewicz on Saturday night at AT&T Park.

8/26/2016 | Giants hope energy from Moore's gem carries over

The Giants on Friday opened a five-game homestand against teams with sub-.500 records, including the Major League-worst (47-81 entering Friday) Atlanta Braves. The clubhouse received a "big lift" before heading home Thursday, thanks to Matt Moore's near no-hitter in the series finale vs. the West-leading Dodgers.

8/26/2016 | Nearly throwing no-hitter 'just fun' for Moore

One out away from recording the 18th no-hitter in the franchise's illustrious pitching history, Matt Moore lost his place in the pantheon of Mathewson, Marichal, Cain and Lincecum when Los Angeles rookie Corey Seager blooped a single to right field. Moore had barely retreated to the dugout when Santiago Casilla retired Justin Turner on one pitch to end the Giants' 4-0 victory. For Moore, however, the joy had just begun to wash over him.

8/26/2016 | Span gives his defensive all to preserve no-no

Any no-hitter has that one play, maybe two. The balls that should have been hits. Matt Moore's bid for history stalled on its final obstacle in Corey Seager, but it still had those moments in a pair of catches in left-center from Denard Span.

8/26/2016 | Moore gives SF boost in giant spot

With two out in the bottom of the ninth inning, Giants manager Bruce Bochy ambled out to the mound at Dodger Stadium, took the ball from left-hander Matt Moore, and knew the Giants had a keeper with the pitcher they acquired from Tampa Bay to give them a boost down the stretch run.

8/26/2016 | Pence day to day with tight right hamstring

Giants right fielder Hunter Pence left Thursday night's 4-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers after five innings with a tight right hamstring.

8/25/2016 | Moore's near no-no leads Giants over Dodgers

In the biggest game of the year for the Giants, Matt Moore delivered the best game of his life. He fell one out shy of a no-hitter, broken up by Corey Seager's soft single to right with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, but beat the Dodgers, 4-0, to snap his club's four-game losing streak, keeping the Giants from being swept in this showdown series and trimming the deficit to two games in the National League West.

8/25/2016 | Bochy: Back not a factor in Posey's slugging

Buster Posey remains virtually as good a hitter as ever. Just not for power. He will have to go on a slugging binge in the next few weeks to match his 2012-15 annual average of 20 homers. He began Thursday with 12.

8/25/2016 | De La Cruz to take on Shark in series opener

Coming off a trip to Los Angeles, during which they fell further behind the front-running Dodgers in the the National League West race, the Giants will attempt to halt their second-half struggles when they welcome the Braves to AT&T Park this weekend. San Francisco's Jeff Samardzija will oppose Atlanta's Joel De La Cruz in Friday night's series opener.

8/25/2016 | Giants still showing fight despite rough stretch

Though Brandon Crawford's bid for a homer was unsuccessful in Wednesday night's 1-0 loss to the Dodgers, his was the type of attitude the Giants must maintain to stay in contention for a postseason spot.

8/25/2016 | Stripling faces Giants for first time since hitless debut

Dodgers rookie Ross Stripling will face the Giants on Thursday night at Dodger Stadium for the first time since his historic MLB debut, with Trade Deadline acquisition Matt Moore making his fifth start for San Francisco. Los Angeles will be seeking a sweep in the series finale between the top two teams in the National League West.

8/25/2016 | Hill outduels Cueto in Dodgers debut

Rich Hill proved to be worth the wait, beating out Johnny Cueto in a pitchers' duel and handing the Dodgers a 1-0 win over the Giants on Wednesday night. Los Angeles now holds a season-high three-game lead in the National League West.

8/24/2016 | Belt's struggles coincide with Giants' slide

Brandon Belt isn't solely at fault for the Giants' second-half record, which was a Major League-worst 11-24 entering Wednesday night's game against the Dodgers. But just as Belt's ascent to All-Star status highlighted the first half, his ongoing slump is entwined with the club's woes.

8/24/2016 | Bumgarner's 200th K overshadowed by rough night

Tuesday had the makings of a successful night for Madison Bumgarner. He fulfilled the primary goal of every starting pitcher by keeping the score close, and he reached a franchise standard for strikeouts that has been scaled by a select few. But that told only part of the tale that Bumgarner spun against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

8/24/2016 | Hill makes Dodgers debut as Giants call on Cueto

Three weeks and multiple delays after his acquisition at the Trade Deadline, Rich Hill will finally make his Dodgers debut and start Wednesday's night's matchup against Johnny Cueto and the Giants in a National League West showdown at Dodger Stadium.
