2014 World Series preview: Royals represent Giants’ toughest challenge yet

So the Giants and Royals are just lucky? Stop it.

Giants come back from three runs down to take 3-1 NLCS lead over Cardinals

Bruce Bochy doesn’t seem fully confident in Game 3 and 4 starters

Neither Tim Hudson nor Ryan Vogelsong were at their best in September, but that didn’t seem to matter in the NLDS. They combined to allow just two runs, nine hits

Four dingers, four stories: Giants lose a postseason game on the road, time to freak out!

I would’ve had to check under my couch for $100 bills if the Giants won Game 2 of the NLCS, which they did not. They lost 5-4 in the ninth

Bumgarner succeeds where Kershaw couldn’t: St. Louis

SF Giants NLCS Roster, and 5 questions about this Giants-Cardinals rematch of sorts

The only change in the San Francisco Giants 25-man roster from the NLDS to the NLCS version is the addition of Michael Morse and no more Gary Brown. So team

Giants move on to NLCS, prove once again that baseball is a team sport

2014 NLDS Game 3 Giants Nationals
October 06, 20144

Nationals avoid sweep with strong outing by Fister, poor throw by Bumgarner

The energy peaked before the game, during introductions and especially when WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan led the AT&T Park crowd in his trademark “YES! YES! YES!” chant. Then both teams went in

Giants win longest postseason game ever on Belt’s HR in 18th

Whenever you think the Giants can’t possibly shove another memorable moment into this five-year block of history-making, something nutty happens. The Nationals should’ve won a 1-0 game that would’ve been one

The Giants are Madison Bumgarner, and they’re moving on to the NLDS

These Giants are stone cold. The Pirates … well, they weren’t ready systematic dismantling like this. Here they were, with dreams of smacking the Cardinals around on Monday and stealing the
