5/3/2016 | Giants slip past Reds with eventful 8th
The Giants' go-ahead rally in Tuesday night's 3-1 victory over the Reds featured more ingredients than Cincinnati-style chili (a mix of questionable nutritional value featuring spaghetti, meat paste and shredded cheese, to which beans and onions are often added).
5/3/2016 | Superb Samardzija leads Giants to victory
Jeff Samardzija pitched eight stellar innings and got picked up by another Reds bullpen stumble with two Giants runs in the top of the eighth for a 3-1 victory Tuesday.
5/3/2016 | Reds, Giants may get key pieces back in finale
A pair of infielders, one from each team, could return to their respective lineups Wednesday as the Giants and Reds complete their three-game series. Cincinnati shortstop Zack Cozart, whose playing status is day to day with tendinitis in his surgically repaired right knee, is poised to return to action. San Francisco second baseman Joe Panik, recovering from a groin injury, also might be back on the field.

5/3/2016 | Workhorse reliever Osich gets a break
Giants manager Bruce Bochy didn't want Josh Osich to touch a baseball Tuesday, much less throw one. Osich led the National League with 15 appearances entering Tuesday, having pitched in each of San Francisco's previous three games.
5/3/2016 | Crawford sees payoff from good at-bats
Brandon Crawford took a huge first step toward reversing the hitting statistics in his favor as he drove in the Giants' final four runs Monday with a three-run homer in the seventh inning and an RBI single in the ninth to help San Francisco surge past the Cincinnati Reds, 9-6.
5/3/2016 | Cueto's return to Cincy brings mixed emotions
The first bursts of noise that Johnny Cueto heard Monday night came from the fans. Thanking him for the charisma he displayed and the mound presence he maintained during his 7 1/2 seasons with the Reds, the Great American Ball Park patrons greeted Cueto with warm ovations as he began warming up for the first inning and when he batted one inning later. The next round of sound wasn't so pleasant for Cueto.
