In this rotation, that's all the Giants are asking of Cain. Like the storm, Tyler Beede is coming.
Wednesday night's Giants-Diamondbacks series finale had a distinctly 2012 NLCS feel to it.
"I was a little bit shaken up after hitting Posey in the head", Diamondbacks pitcher Taijuan Walker added.
The right-hander was once a 15-game victor for the St. Louis Cardinals, but he fell upon hard times in 2015 (6-17 record despite a 3.02 ERA for the Atlanta Braves) and last season (3-12 with a 6.15 ERA for Arizona). He is merely trying to keep a place there. The right-hander will take the ball Tuesday at Kansas City. "We had three of them, it was a insane inning". "We've got to earn the respect of the National League. I went in, and that was it". With the Thunder locked into the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference playoff field, coach Billy Donovan said the time was right to give their MVP candidate a rest. "As a group, I think what I'm most happy with, what we're most happy with, is the consistency of our offense one through nine".
Miller (1-0) tossed 5 1/3 innings in Friday's win over the Indians, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks with seven strikeouts.
Even those fans who want to put Cain out to pasture had to savor another opportunity to celebrate the pitcher who authored the only ideal game in franchise history, formed an essential part of two World Series-winning rotations and quietly shined for years while riding in Tim Lincecum's sidecar.
"That was the big turning point in the game", Cain said. Cain started to run out of gas in the sixth, but when he put the first two on, Cory Gearrin entered and struck out three straight.
This season got off to a rough start as the Giants won only two of their first seven games. Moore stood on second base and had a laugh about the whole thing.
The Giants' Buster Posey lays on the ground after being hit by a pitch in his helmet on Monday.
It didn't start out with such promise. They settled for a double and triple, respectively. For those susceptible to confirmation bias, that was enough.
On Tuesday, general manager Bobby Evans said Posey was experiencing concussion symptoms, although he did not appear to lose consciousness during Monday's game, according to ESPN. The ex-Chicago Cub struck out as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning.
"Really, really nice moment there". "I know Matty's been through a lot". "We've talked about this when training into these guys is that they just need to get an out when it's asked". "I'm healthy and I'm feeling great". It's another odd-numbered year, after all, so fans are already setting expectations low - except for SFist's own Joe Kukura, who declared already that we're going all the way (knock on wood). Gorkys Hernandez crashed into the center field wall chasing the ball, allowing all three runners to score easily.
The left-hander shut out the San Francisco Giants for 6 2/3 innings and sparked a three-run uprising with a leadoff single, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks continue their winning ways with a 4-3 victory. Bochy was especially enthused by Parker's swing, the best one he's taken all season. Against the wind, that ball was crushed. It's tough for these kids. Over the last four seasons, he has averaged more than 80 starts per season. He's hitting doubles in the gap and pitching outstanding.
Posey was certain to undergo the concussion protocol, and it's unclear how long he might be sidelined. Join the Around the Foghorn team!
