POSTCAST: Bullpen Triumphs Over Zack Wheeler as Giants Walk-Off Phillies
The San Francisco Giants bullpen did a phenomenal job today going toe-to-toe with Cy Young candidate Zack Wheeler and the Philadelphia Phillies, as the San Francisco Giants came out with another walk-off win, 1-0, at Oracle Park. Luis Matos was the hero again as he lifted a sacrifice fly to left field that scores Tyler Fitzgerald and won the game. Reliever Spencer Howard made his San Francisco Giants debut and gave them four innings of shutout work on the mound. With the win, the Giants secure a series victory against the Philadelphia Phillies with one more game to play in this three-game series tomorrow. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!Stitch FixStyle that makes you feel as good as you look—get started today at StitchFix.com/MLB and get $20 off your first fixSupplyHouseSupplyHouse.com is the reliable way to get parts fast. Shop for your next plumbing, h-vac, or electrical job and get fast shipping from coast to coast. eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

Resilient SF Giants Triumph, But LaMonte Wade Jr. Suffers Hamstring Injury

Resilient SF Giants Triumph, But LaMonte Wade Jr. Suffers Hamstring Injury
LaMonte Wade Jr. has been one of the best hitters in baseball this year, period. Among hitters with at least 160 plate appearances, Wade's .470 OBP is best in the sport by a mile, and his 19.9% walk rate also ranks first. But the San Francisco Giants will be without Wade for an unknown amount of time after he came up limping legging out a double in Monday's resilient win over the Phillies. That the SF Giants beat the Phillies is no small accomplishment. The Giants were coming off an extremely tough loss, blowing a two-run ninth-inning lead against the Mets the previous day. The SF Giants then flew all the way across the country that evening, then played a day game on account of the holiday. And oh by the way, Philadelphia swept the Giants in a four-game series earlier this year and has the best record in baseball. In other news, Marco Luciano seems to have lost his grip on the starting shortstop role in Nick Ahmed's absence. Brett Wisely has been playing very well, and Luciano made several critical errors on the Giants' recent road trip. The SF Giants were able to overcome those errors for the most part, but it backs up what scouts have long believed: that Luciano may need to move off of the position in order to thrive in the majors.Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:🎧 Apple Podcasts http://apple.co/3ycRK3U🎧 Spotify http://spoti.fi/3Bak0pN🎧 Google Play https://bit.ly/3D356mr🎧 Overcast https://bit.ly/3wqZsbg🎧 Megaphone https://bit.ly/3wGGcXDThe best daily San Francisco Giants podcast.

POSTCAST: Giants Offense Back On Track With Memorial Day Victory Over Phillies
The San Francisco Giants got a little bit of revenge at Oracle Park today as they beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-4. The bottom of the order has been producing well as of late and continued to do so today with Brett Wisely, Heliot Ramos, and Mike Yastrzemski accounting for six of the San Francisco Giants eight RBI. Blake Snell got the start for the San Francisco Giants on this beautiful Memorial Day at 3rd & King, and failed to pitch more than four innings again. The offense bailed him out today, but the Snell experience is getting old. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!Stitch FixStyle that makes you feel as good as you look—get started today at StitchFix.com/MLB and get $20 off your first fixSupplyHouseSupplyHouse.com is the reliable way to get parts fast. Shop for your next plumbing, h-vac, or electrical job and get fast shipping from coast to coast. eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

POSTCAST: Mets Ninth Inning Rally Spoils Giants Sweep in New York
The San Francisco Giants got a taste of their own medicine today, falling to the New York Mets, 4-3, after a three-run ninth inning propelled the New York Mets to a walk-off win at Citi Field. Logan Webb tossed seven strong innings of one-run ball, and recorded eight strikeouts, but the bullpen couldn't hold the lead. With Camilo Doval unavailable to pitch today, Tyler Rogers was called upon to seal the win and couldn't get the job done. Still, a 4-2 road trip is nothing for the San Francisco Giants to hang their heads about.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!Stitch FixStyle that makes you feel as good as you look—get started today at StitchFix.com/MLB and get $20 off your first fixSupplyHouseSupplyHouse.com is the reliable way to get parts fast. Shop for your next plumbing, h-vac, or electrical job and get fast shipping from coast to coast. eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

The San Francisco Giants overcame yet another late-game deficit as they beat the New York Mets 7-2 in extra innings. Trailing 2-1 going into the 9th inning, Lamonte Wade Jr drove in the tying run with a pinch hit single. Then in extra innings, the San Francisco Giants plated five runs with Mike Yastrzemski swatting a three-run triple in the rally. Jordan Hicks struck out eight in his five innings of one-run ball.

POSTCAST: Bailey Blast Gives Giants Another Comeback Win in Thriller vs Mets
The San Francisco Giants pulled out yet another comeback win on this road trip, this time taking down the New York Mets 8-7 at Citi Field. Patrick Bailey smashed an 8th inning grand slam to give the San Francisco Giants a one-run lead. Things got dicey for Camilo Doval in the ninth inning, but Matt Chapman made the defensive play of the season to secure the final out of the game, and a big Giants win.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!IbottaRight now, Ibotta is offering our listeners $5 just for trying Ibotta by using the code LOCKEDONMLB when you download the app. Yahoo FinanceFor comprehensive financial news and analysis, visit the brand behind every great investor, YahooFinance.com.LinkedInRight now, you can try LinkedIn Sales Navigator and get a sixty-day free trial at LinkedIn.com/LOCKEDON.PolicygeniusCheck life insurance off your to do list in no time with Policygenius.

SF Giants Sign Old Friend Drew Pomeranz to MLB Deal, Shoring Up Lefty Relief Corps

SF Giants Sign Old Friend Drew Pomeranz to MLB Deal, Shoring Up Lefty Relief Corps
The San Francisco Giants turned two months of Drew Pomeranz into several years of Mauricio Dubón thanks to briefly moving him to the bullpen prior to the 2019 trade deadline. The Brewers enjoyed great success from Pomeranz after acquiring him in that trade, and Pomeranz turned that into a lucrative deal with the Padres. Pomeranz was good when on the field for San Diego, but hasn't pitched in the majors since 2021 due to injuries. Earlier today, after he was released by the Dodgers, the SF Giants quickly pounced and signed Pomeranz to a major-league contract. He joins the bullpen immediately. In corresponding moves, the Giants optioned RHP Mason Black, who's struggled mightily in a handful of MLB outings, and DFA'd  catcherJakson Reetz. It's an intriguing add for the SF Giants, but it's unclear what Pomeranz can bring to the table after missing so much time in recent seasons.In other news, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred spoke to reporters about the fact that ABS—or an automated strike zone—will likely be implemented in the majors as a challenge system, and it likely won't come in 2025. The pros and cons of a challenge system are discussed. Additionally, Curt Casali's impact on the Giants is discussed. The team was great in 2021 with Casali as the backup catcher, and he's very much stabilized things for them in his brief time with the SF Giants in 2024 after Patrick Bailey and Tom Murphy were injured in back-to-back games.Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:🎧 Apple Podcasts http://apple.co/3ycRK3U🎧 Spotify http://spoti.fi/3Bak0pN🎧 Google Play https://bit.ly/3D356mr🎧 Overcast https://bit.ly/3wqZsbg🎧 Megaphone https://bit.ly/3wGGcXDThe best daily San Francisco Giants podcast.

SF Giants Stun Pirates Again With Another Epic Comeback Win in Historic Series
The San Francisco Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates just played one of the wildest series in MLB history. For the first time in MLB history, all three games of a three-game series featured comeback wins of four or more runs. For the SF Giants, it was the first time in franchise history that they had won two games in a row, with both being on the road, after trailing by four-plus runs. The Giants followed up their worst loss of 2024—blowing a four-run ninth-inning lead, with what may have been their two best wins of the season. Wild, wild stuff in Pittsburgh.Matt Chapman was one of many heroes for the Giants. Chapman played exceptionally well all series long on both sides of the ball. He hit a home run in all three games, including big ones late in the SF Giants' comeback efforts on Wednesday and Thursday. The Giants were down to their final strike with no one on base in the middle game of the series, and Luis Matos singled and aggressively took second on an error in left. Then LaMonte Wade Jr., who leads the majors in walk rate and OBP by a mile, delivered a vintage Late Night LaMonte moment, tying the game with a rocket single to right. The Giants put together a huge four-run rally in the 10th and won. And today they overcame an early Joey Bart grand slam with a five-run eighth en route to another huge win.Baseball is a game of large samples and the SF Giants are proving that right now. Chapman is a good example, as he struggled mightily for the first month and a half, but is on another planet right now (both with the bat and with the glove). The team overall was below average offensively for much of the season, but suddenly found itself five percent above average by wRC+ coming into today's game. After a 13-hit performance, the Giants' offensive numbers will only look better tomorrow. Most importantly of all, the Giants banked two more wins and pulled to within one game of .500.Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:🎧 Apple Podcasts http://apple.co/3ycRK3U🎧 Spotify http://spoti.fi/3Bak0pN🎧 Google Play https://bit.ly/3D356mr🎧 Overcast https://bit.ly/3wqZsbg🎧 Megaphone https://bit.ly/3wGGcXDThe best daily San Francisco Giants podcast.

POSTCAST: Giants Turning into Comeback Kids with Another Late Rally to Beat Pirates
The San Francisco Giants orchestrated another huge late-game comeback to win the final game of the series against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park. Entering the 8th inning down 6-2, Matt Chapman blasted a three-run bomb to fuel a five-run inning to take the lead. The bullpen did their job after, as Randy Rodriguez and Tyler Rogers held onto the lead to secure the win. Just their third series win on the road this season, the San Francisco Giants continue their road trip as they face the New York Mets in a three-game set before returning to Oracle Park. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!IbottaRight now, Ibotta is offering our listeners $5 just for trying Ibotta by using the code LOCKEDONMLB when you download the app. Yahoo FinanceFor comprehensive financial news and analysis, visit the brand behind every great investor, YahooFinance.com.LinkedInRight now, you can try LinkedIn Sales Navigator and get a sixty-day free trial at LinkedIn.com/LOCKEDON.PolicygeniusCheck life insurance off your to do list in no time with Policygenius.

POSTCAST: Giants Battle for Extra Innings Comeback Victory vs Pirates
The San Francisco Giants showed some guts today as they battled their way back into this game after falling behind 5-0, ultimately picking up the extra-innings win over the Pittsburgh Pirates by a score of 9-5. Luis Matos energized the San Francisco Giants with a hustle double in the 9th inning, and later scored on a Lamonte Wade Jr single to tie the game at five and send it to extras. Then the bats woke up, as the San Francisco Giants plated four runs in the 10th inning. One day after the Giants let a win slip away in the ninth inning, they steal one back from the Pirates with late game heroics of their own. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!IbottaRight now, Ibotta is offering our listeners $5 just for trying Ibotta by using the code LOCKEDONMLB when you download the app. Yahoo FinanceFor comprehensive financial news and analysis, visit the brand behind every great investor, YahooFinance.com.LinkedInRight now, you can try LinkedIn Sales Navigator and get a sixty-day free trial at LinkedIn.com/LOCKEDON.PolicygeniusCheck life insurance off your to do list in no time with Policygenius.

SF Giants Suffer Worst Loss of 2024, Blowing 4-Run 9th-Inning Lead

SF Giants Suffer Worst Loss of 2024, Blowing 4-Run 9th-Inning Lead
The San Francisco Giants were riding high, and it looked like they were on their way to their fifth straight victory. The Giants took a 6-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth, and that's where the nightmare began. Luke Jackson got the first hitter out, but then things unraveled for him and eventually SF Giants closer Camilo Doval. The Giants survived to see extras, but did not score in the 10th and Pittsburgh won it on on pitch in the bottom of the inning. Meanwhile, there's good news on the injury front, with Patrick Bailey and Blake Snell being activated off the injured list. Those two are among the best players on the Giants, and over time their presence should add up to more wins. Tuesday's loss was a freak incident that happens once or twice over the course of a 162-game season. The Giants' overall stats and performance thus far is analyzed as we prepare for them to play game No. 50. By all rights, they should've been going for a 25-25 record, which would put them firmly in the playoff hunt as the season is still in its relatively early stages. But the stunning loss set the SF Giants back and they're now back to three games under .500 instead of one. There's no getting around it: last night's loss was painful and definitely stands out as the worst of 2024.Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:🎧 Apple Podcasts http://apple.co/3ycRK3U🎧 Spotify http://spoti.fi/3Bak0pN🎧 Google Play https://bit.ly/3D356mr🎧 Overcast https://bit.ly/3wqZsbg🎧 Megaphone https://bit.ly/3wGGcXDThe best daily San Francisco Giants podcast.

POSTCAST: Bullpen Blows Big Ninth Inning Lead as Giants Fall to Pirates 7-6
The San Francisco Giants win streak came to an end against the Pittsburgh Pirates after the bullpen blew a four-run lead in the ninth inning. The loss spoils a great outing from Logan Webb, who tossed six innings of two-run ball. Thairo Estrada and Matt Chapman both homered in this one, and the San Francisco Giants' young bats contributed as well. But Marco Luciano's bad play in the field cost them a win in this one. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!IbottaRight now, Ibotta is offering our listeners $5 just for trying Ibotta by using the code LOCKEDONMLB when you download the app. Yahoo FinanceFor comprehensive financial news and analysis, visit the brand behind every great investor, YahooFinance.com.LinkedInRight now, you can try LinkedIn Sales Navigator and get a sixty-day free trial at LinkedIn.com/LOCKEDON.PolicygeniusCheck life insurance off your to do list in no time with Policygenius.

Should SF Giants' Luis Matos, Heliot Ramos, & Marco Luciano Stay in MLB For Good?

Should SF Giants' Luis Matos, Heliot Ramos, & Marco Luciano Stay in MLB For Good?
Luis Matos, Heliot Ramos, and Marco Luciano have brought a jolt of energy (and an influx of wins) to the San Francisco Giants as injury replacements over the last week or two. The trio of young Giants are essentially replacing Austin Slater, Nick Ahmed, and Michael Conforto, who are all on the injured list. What should the SF Giants do when those veterans are ready to return? Have we seen enough of young players like Matos and Ramos to make a trade of Slater or Conforto? Would the Giants dare send either back to Triple-A if they're playing well? Matos in particular looks like a lock to stick in the majors, but Ramos and Luciano must continue to perform to hold onto their current spots given their optionality.Among the other questions asked and answered on today's mailbag edition of Locked On Giants are:When’s Patrick Bailey coming back?Who will be the Giants' All-Stars this year?Randy Rodriguez: A mainstay or back to Sacramento?With Keaton Winn hurt and Mason Black struggling, do you think we see Carson Wisenhunt or another Triple-A starter get a shot before Alex Cobb and Robbie Ray come back?Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:🎧 Apple Podcasts http://apple.co/3ycRK3U🎧 Spotify http://spoti.fi/3Bak0pN🎧 Google Play https://bit.ly/3D356mr🎧 Overcast https://bit.ly/3wqZsbg🎧 Megaphone https://bit.ly/3wGGcXDThe best daily San Francisco Giants podcast.

SF Giants' Luis Matos Named NL Player of the Week After Historic RBI Tear

SF Giants' Luis Matos Named NL Player of the Week After Historic RBI Tear
The San Francisco Giants were in need of a spark, and instead they got a supernova. Luis Matos, recently called up from Triple-A as a fill-in for one of the Giants' many injured players, drove in 17 runs in a six-game span on his way to NL Player of the Week honors. No Giants player had accomplished the feat since Brandon Belt in 2018.Matos wasn't the only SF Giants player to step up, as the team completed a three-game sweep of the Rockies and has suddenly won four straight. The Giants are just 1.5 games out of a playoff spot and have the best record of any non-playoff team in the NL. The Giants appear on paper to be better than their record—even after a 6-3 homestand—so hopefully they can keep the momentum going through Pittsburgh and New York on this upcoming road trip. The SF Giants have gone 15-10 at home but have struggled mightily on the road so far in 2024.Hot starts for Matos, Heliot Ramos, and Marco Luciano call into question what the Giants should do once they start to get some of their injured players back. Jung Hoo Lee is out of the season, sadly, but Austin Slater, Michael Conforto, and Nick Ahmed should be able to return at some point in the not-too-distant future. How can the Giants send any of these young players down if they're performing this well? It's a tough question to answer. In other news, Patrick Bailey and Blake Snell, both of whom do not create any logjams, are getting closer to returning and that is very much a good thing for the suddenly red-hot SF Giants.Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:🎧 Apple Podcasts http://apple.co/3ycRK3U🎧 Spotify http://spoti.fi/3Bak0pN🎧 Google Play https://bit.ly/3D356mr🎧 Overcast https://bit.ly/3wqZsbg🎧 Megaphone https://bit.ly/3wGGcXDThe best daily San Francisco Giants podcast.

Inbox: Are SF Giants' Injury Woes a Blessing in Disguise?
The San Francisco Giants have had a suboptimal first quarter of their season. At the 45-game mark, the Giants are 20-25, certainly not what the organization expected after investing so much money into the 2024 roster. Injuries and underperformance from key players have been a big part of the team's early struggles. But are those injuries a blessing in disguise, as it means that young talents like Heliot Ramos and Luis Matos will get extended looks at the MLB level? Among the other questions asked and answered on today's edition of the Locked On Giants podcast are: What are Austin Slater’s stats since last June? It seems his game has been off since then. Is that a large enough sample size? Heliot Ramos has already matched his hit total this year.

Logan Webb Shines: SF Giants Beat Dodgers to Avoid Sweep

Logan Webb Shines: SF Giants Beat Dodgers to Avoid Sweep
The San Francisco Giants needed a win—badly. Losers of five straight games to Los Angeles this season, the SF Giants were in danger of being swept at home and falling to a season-worst six games below .500. But Logan Webb and the Giants had other ideas, as they put it all together in a satisfying 4-1 win over their hated rivals. The Giants have been dealing with an extremely high volume of injuries recently. On the catching side, they lost starter Patrick Bailey and backup Tom Murphy on consecutive days in Philadelphia. Blake Sabol has hit well in their absence but has struggled defensively. Jakson Reetz has looked overmatched after homering in his first plate appearance with the Giants. And so the Giants brought back Curt Casali on a major-league deal, and he immediately contributed behind and at the plate in the win. Finally, the rest of the Giants' medical situations are updated, including the latest on Jung Hoo Lee, whose dislocated shoulder has structural damage per an MRI. Lee will get a second opinion, but the news is ominous and he could miss significant time, if not the entire season, which would be a brutal blow for the Giants. But on the bright side it would give an opportunity to a deserving young player such as Heliot Ramos or Luis Matos.Find and follow Locked On Giants on your favorite podcast platforms:🎧 Apple Podcasts http://apple.co/3ycRK3U🎧 Spotify http://spoti.fi/3Bak0pN🎧 Google Play https://bit.ly/3D356mr🎧 Overcast https://bit.ly/3wqZsbg🎧 Megaphone https://bit.ly/3wGGcXDThe best daily San Francisco Giants podcast.

POSTCAST: Giants Avoid Sweep on Strength of Logan Webb Six Scoreless Innings
The San Francisco Giants avoided being swept by the Los Angeles Dodgers for the second time this season, as they pulled out a 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers at Oracle Park. Logan Webb tossed six scoreless innings, showing again why he's one of the best pitchers in baseball. Luis Matos showed what he can do on both offense and defense, as he drove in a run and pulled a ball back that was destined for the bullpen beyond the center field wall. Giants, however, still lose the series and sit at just 20-25 after the win. A far cry from what Giants fans expected going into this season. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!PolicygeniusCheck life insurance off your to do list in no time with Policygenius.
