Smoking Giants await Phillies

Starting tonight for the Giants will be Jack Peavy (3-6, 5.47 ERA) who will be matched up against the Phillies Zack Eflin (0-2, 10,82 ERA)

Sox pull off 5-3 comeback to defeat Giants

It took extra innings for one of the most power laden offenses in the Majors, the Boston Red Sox to complete a comeback in game one of a two game series. The rubber game begins tonight at  9:15 pm.

Xander Bogaerts slammed a tie-breaking two run single off of closer Santiago Casilla.  Bogaerts also had single RBI.

“He gives himself an opportunity to cover the whole plate against a lot of pitchers,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said of Bogaerts. “He’s going to put the bat on the ball.”

The Giants were without their Three P’s, Pagen (DL List), Pence (DL List) and Posey (scratch), directly leading to their four losses in the past six games.  Posey will most likely miss tonight’s game as well.

Tickets for tonight’s game are still available so be sure to get out and help cheer on your San Francisco Giants in the “Revenge-Game” tonight~!

Giants losing streak continues

The San Francisco Giants have had trouble over the past few weeks and their current losing streak goes back to June 30th.  Last nights loss in the opener against the NY Mets hurt even more given that it was former Giants catcher, Johnny Monell  that  ended with a two-run double in the ninth inning.

“You face a team that you played with at one time and you’re not with them anymore … you always want to show them you made a mistake,” Mets manager Terry Collins said of Monell. “There’s always a little adrenaline.”

The Giants have a chance to get back on the winning side against the Mets tonight in the second of three meetings this week.  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today!

Giants take Game 1 on the Road

The San Francisco Giants kept Kauffman Stadium quiet en route to a 7-1 Game 1 victory in the 2014 edition of the World Series.  Early overnight reports say that this was the lowest rated World Series game in history.

The Giants were led by pitching ace Madison Baumgarner, who held the Royals scoreless until the 7th Inning when Salvador Perez homered with two outs.  Baumgarner improved to 3-0 with a 0.41 ERA in World Series starts.  Prior to Perez homering, Baumgarner had retired12 players in a row.

“It’s tough not to pay attention to a streak when you’ve got it going. I don’t care. I’m not here trying to set records and keep streaks going and whatever, but you do know about it. A World Series game is not something you exactly forget about. So you remember what [they] were. But tonight, that was the last thing on my mind.”

Game two of the World Series begins tonight at 7:07 P.M.  Plenty of affordable tickets and great seats are still available so get yours now and be a part of the action!
