5/24/2015 | Giants relieved to escape rainy, wild Denver

The Giants' series against the Colorado Rockies became a success when their charter flight took off Sunday night for Milwaukee, the team's next stop.

5/24/2015 | Lohse, Lincecum rolling into series opener

The Brewers kick off a six-game homestand Monday afternoon in a Memorial Day matchup against the Giants.

Both starters are looking to complete a perfect month of May.

5/24/2015 | Blanco nabbed at third to snuff rally

The Giants' 5-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Saturday couldn't be pinned directly on Gregor Blanco's decision not to slide into third base on a ninth-inning double play or Casey McGehee's fifth-inning run that was nullified by a replay review. But after remaining ultra-competitive for two solid weeks, the Giants were reminded that it didn't take much to slip back into the land of the losing.


5/24/2015 | Crawford emerges as impact bat

Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford always felt he belonged in the big leagues. Now, at the age of 28, in his fourth full big league season, he knows it. And it shows.

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.

5/20/2015 | Giants showcasing adaptability

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

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