9/24/2016 | Fifth inning goes awry for Reynolds, Giants

To say that Friday night's fifth inning didn't proceed as planned for the Giants was an understatement. They scored twice in the top of the inning to shave the difference to one run.

San Francisco took the field Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium knowing that the Mets and Cardinals, their rivals in the National League Wild Card competition, already had lost.

9/20/2016 | Bumgarner does his part with stellar start

Unlike the Giants' bullpen, Madison Bumgarner experienced little trouble recording outs Monday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Yet nobody offered a clear explanation for Bumgarner's removal after he sustained a seven-inning one-hitter and eclipsed Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw in San Francisco's 2-1 loss.

9/20/2016 | Statcast of the Day: Nunez's speed aids Giants
