The Giants’ 9-6 victory over the Phillies lasted 14 innings, involved 16 pitchers throwing 507 times to the plate, took five hours and 46 minutes, included more cramping than a track meet for septuagenarians and it finally ended 7 minutes before 1 a.m. Wednesday morning at Citizens Bank Park when Tim Lincecum really and truly recorded his first career save.

For the second time in two years, Tim Lincecum no-hits the San Diego Padres.

The Giants might be reeling after losing three late leads and getting swept by the Colorado Rockies, but at least Buster Posey is clear of mind.

Henderson Alvarez has three shutouts. Three shutouts was enough to be the full-season leader in that category in five of the past 11 seasons.

Brandon Belt suffered a broken left thumb when he was hit by a pitch last night and could miss six weeks.

Michael. Hey, Michael. You got a little, um . . . no, the other side. Yeah, good. You got it.

Giants catcher Buster Posey lost the nail on his right ring finger in the sixth inning Tuesday when he was clipped by a Madison Bumgarner bouncer and is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday night’s series finale at Petco Park against the Padres. Posey told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle that the…

Athletics 5, Astros 0: Sonny Gray only has a couple of major league starts under his belt, but this one was a spiffy one: eight shutout innings, nine strikeouts. Of course a lot of guys have had spiffy starts against the Astros lately. Rule 5 pick Nate Freiman had himself a nice day too, going…

On the heels of a five-game winning streak, the Nationals were three outs away from reaching the .500 mark for the first time since July 19 when Rafael Soriano took the hill with a 3-1 lead in the ninth inning this afternoon against the Giants. After allowing a lead-off single to Buster Posey, Soriano got…

Here we go again: the Tim Lincecum-Buster Posey pairing the Giants did their best to avoid throughout the second half of last season was supposed to be back on this year. Manager Bruce Bochy was very clear on that both over the winter and this spring. And, yet, Hector Sanchez will catch Lincecum for the…

Tim Lincecum‘s awful spring, in which he gave up 18 runs in 15 1/3 innings, only added to the Giants’ doubts about what they’d get from their two-time Cy Young winner this season. They’re probably no closer to figuring it out after Lincecum walked seven yet still defeated the Dodgers on Wednesday. Lincecum surrendered just…

A lot of ink was spilled last year talking about an alleged rift between Tim Lincecum and Buster Posey. One that had Hector Sanchez catching Lincecum most of the time with Posey playing first base or taking a breather. As is often the case with the opening of spring training, however, reports of any disconnect…

Pablo Sandoval homered three times on Wednesday. Anibal Sanchez gets the start tonight. Miguel Cabrera, Avisail Garcia, Omar Infante, Marco Scutaro, Gregor Blanco, Jose Mijares and Hector Sanchez are on rosters. Venezuela is well represented in this World Series. And someone is very happy about that: Hugo Chavez: He referred to President Barack Obama as he…

The Giants will go with their 22-year-old backup catcher as their designated hitter in Game 3 of the World Series in Detroit on Saturday. Hector Sanchez is getting the call for the third time in the postseason. Aubrey Huff was the most likely alternative in the spot. Both of Sanchez’s previous assignments this month came…

Giants backup catcher Hector Sanchez made one start in the NLDS against the Reds and another in the NLCS versus the Cardinals. But the 22-year-old is unlikely to catch at all during the World Series. Giants manager Bruce Bochy told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle on Wednesday that Buster Posey will do “all…

Here are the lineups for Game 5 of the NLCS between the Giants and Cardinals, in St. Louis: SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS ST. LOUIS CARDINALS 1. Angel Pagan, CF 1. Jon Jay, CF 2. Marco Scutaro, 2B 2. Carlos Beltran, RF 3. Pablo Sandoval, 3B 3. Matt Holliday, LF 4. Buster Posey, C 4. Allen Craig,…

The real question is why Hector Sanchez ever started catching Tim Lincecum in the first place this year. Yeah, Lincecum got off to an awful start this year with Buster Posey catching him. But who made that about Posey? Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner certainly didn’t have any problem with Posey. And Lincecum was extremely…

Adam Wainwright has some more cushion to work with going into the top of the sixth inning. The Cardinals tacked on two more runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and currently lead the Giants 4-1 in Game 4 of the NLCS. They got the first run after Matt Carpenter just missed a home…
