Dodgers Kershaw Giants, Kershaw NL West

This was an assertion of dominance. The Dodgers won these two September series in nearly identical fashion, and tonight was even worse for the Giants in a few excruciatingly painful ways than the

Bumgarner hits Puig and a homer, but it’s not enough as Dodgers lower magic number to one

Many years from now, we’re all going to glorify what we saw tonight. Embrace it. Don Drysdale throwing brushback pitches at Willie Mays and Willie McCovey sounds downright sexy now.

San Francisco Giants players reportedly boycotting beat writer

Giants break through with three runs in 13th to beat Dodgers

After the Giants got swept in San Diego and fell 4.5 games behind the Dodgers, Andrew Baggarly’s pregame updates read like a prewritten obituary. Tonight’s appetizers: raw artichoke, soggy bruschetta

Larry Baer and Adam Silver have something in common

Each time a Giant homers at home this season, the trademark “yodel” from a certain local tech company is heard throughout AT&T Park. If Larry Baer has his way, a matching

Giants lose to Padres as momenTim shifts in San Diego

That one was an ordeal. A boring ordeal, at that. I feel like I’ve seen this game before … oh, that’s because I was in attendance. Version 1.0 was a 6-0 loss

Projecting the Giants postseason roster

Assuming the Giants make the postseason, here’s my roster projection. They’ll probably need to win a Wild Card “play-in” game against the Pirates just to make it to the NLDS,

You gotta like these kids: Giants win on Duffy’s two-run single in ninth, now two games behind L.A.

The Giants had to win this game, with Madison Bumgarner pitching and the Dodgers falling behind by a half dozen runs at Coors before Andrew Chafin threw the game’s first pitch.

Giants need to worry about fending off Brewers in Wild Card race, Gutierrez is literally a junk baller

The Dodgers’ lead over the Giants is four games. With only 12 games left after L.A. won 11-3 in Denver and the Giants lost 6-2 in Phoenix, the likelihood of

Dodgers beat Giants 17-0, game not as close as score would indicate

Maybe it’s just not meant to be. That’s not a reference to the Giants’ chances of winning the division or advancing in the playoffs — as badly as they were beaten

Hudson vs. Dodgers base-stealers, Ryu getting MRI, amazing question for Bochy

The Giants have stolen 53 bases this season as a team. Dee Gordon, the Dodgers’ leadoff hitter tonight, has 59 by himself. After losing 9-0 last night, look for the Dodgers

Giants just one game back in NL West after crushing Dodgers in series opener

Summer turned to fall nine days early in San Francisco. When Joe Panik and Buster Posey hit back-to-back doubles in the first inning, and the legitimate sellout crowd screamed while

Brandon Belt takes BP, thinks he’ll be back before most people expect

Brandon Belt was medically cleared to return to baseball activities yesterday, and he was in great spirits after taking batting practice with his teammates at AT&T Park. “Swing’s pretty good,” Belt

Bruce Bochy uses UZR (sometimes)

Bruce Bochy is known as one of the best managers in baseball. He’s probably going to the Hall of Fame. But he’s never been thought of as a darling of the sabermetrics

Petit tosses complete game, Panik goes 5-for-5, Giants gain game on Dodgers

You don’t have to feel good for Yusmeiro Petit. You might be a fan of another team. Like the D-Backs, the team Petit pitched for from 2007-09 that came *this*

Giants run winning streak against Tigers to five games

The Giants are the hottest team in baseball, which seems weird considering they checked out of Wednesday’s game against the Rockies in the sixth inning. They smacked the Tigers around

Giants come back from 6-0 deficit, rout listless Rockies 12-7

All at once, the Rockies showed the Giants the downtrodden team the rest of the National League has enjoyed facing throughout the season. Even though the Giants took three straight against Colorado
