Madison Bumgarner was tagged for six runs over seven innings in a loss to the Rangers on Friday.

Bumgarner gave up a two-run homer to Adrian Beltre in the first inning and a four-spot in the second. Frustration appeared to boil over for him in the fourth inning, as he incited a benches-clearing incident after Delino DeShields flipped his bat on a pop-up. Bumgarner settled down from there, but the damage was already done in this one. The southpaw fanned eight and walked none in the loss and now sits at 11-6 with a 3.39 ERA on the year. He'll face the Braves next Wednesday on the road.

Brandon Crawford launched a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

It was his 16th home run of the season and his fourth in his last nine games. The 28-year-old has been a surprising force at the shortstop position this season, batting .268/.331/.481 across 99 games.

Nori Aoki went 2-for-4 with an RBI double Friday in a losing effort against the Rangers.

With the Giants playing under American League rules, Aoki batted ninth Friday while Angel Pagan was in the leadoff spot. Aoki was the primary leadoff hitter prior to landing on the disabled list with a fractured right fibula in late June, but it looks like he's going to bounce around the order for now.

Giants placed RHP Tim Hudson on the disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

Hudson spent time on the DL earlier this season with a shoulder ailment, although both times it's looked like a phantom injury. There's no longer a spot in the rotation for the veteran following the acquisition of Mike Leake.
Jul 31 - 5:59 PM

Joe Panik (back) is back in the Giants' lineup Friday.

Panik missed a couple games with a stiff back. He returns to a .309/.375/.440 batting line.
Jul 31 - 3:28 PM

Giants acquired RHP Mike Leake from the Reds in exchange for 1B Adam Duvall and RHP Keury Mella.

The Giants were unable to land the frontline starter they sought, but Leake isn't a bad backup plan. The right-hander boasts a 3.56 ERA on the season and has put up a 2.59 mark since the beginning of June. He'll bump Tim Hudson to the bullpen.
Jul 31 - 8:14 AM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Giants have agreed to a deal with the Reds for Mike Leake.

The Reds will receive minor leaguers Keury Mella and Adam Duvall in return. The Giants get the rotation help that they so desperately coveted without having to sacrifice their entire future. It's also a huge win for Mike Leake, who gets to pitch in his home state while moving from one of the top offensive parks in the league to a pitcher's paradise in San Francisco.
Jul 31 - 12:34 AM

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Reds are in active discussions with the Reds about acquiring right-hander Mike Leake.

The Giants have been mentioned as possible suitors for nearly every starting pitcher on the market thus far, they simply haven't had the necessary pieces to land any of the top options. They could have enough to get Leake though, and he would certainly help to add stability to the back of their rotation as they attempt to defend their World Series title.

Ehire Adrianza went 1-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs on Wednesday, leading the Giants to a 5-0 victory over the Brewers.

Getting a rare start at second base in place of Joe Panik, Adrianza delivered a two-run single as part of a five-run uprising in the seventh inning that broke the game open. The 25-year-old is hitting just .136/.174/.182 in limited action this season.

Jake Peavy scattered just four hits over six shutout innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Wednesday.

Peavy struck out three in the contest. Unfortunately for him, the Giants offense didn't wake up until the seventh inning, so Peavy had to settle for a no-decision. He now sports a 4.12 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 25/10 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings on the season. He'll do battle against the Braves in Atlanta his next time out on Tuesday.
Jul 29 - 10:01 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Mike Leake is one of the starters the Blue Jays are considering.

Rosenthal says that the Jays' targets are "all at similar talent levels," which suggests that they aren't in the market for an ace if they're considering Leake. Toronto is "looking for the best acquisition cost," Rosenthal adds. Leake certainly didn't hurt his trade value with eight shutout innings against the Cardinals on Tuesday.
Jul 29 - 2:01 PM

Angel Pagan is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

It's a simple day off. Gregor Blanco is in center field while Pagan rests.
Jul 29 - 1:28 PM

Buster Posey is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

It's a routine day off with it being a day game after a night game. Hector Sanchez is catching in Posey's place.
Jul 29 - 1:28 PM

Joe Panik will miss a second straight game Wednesday due to back tightness.

Panik noted that it wasn't one play that caused the injury, but rather it's just "one of those things" you have to deal with during a long season. He's considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Wednesday.
Jul 29 - 8:24 AM

Matt Cain yielded four runs in six innings, taking the loss on Tuesday versus the Brewers.

The Brewers jumped on him for two runs in the first inning, then tacked on single runs in the third and fourth. Cain allowed eight hits overall, walked none, and struck out three. He's alternated good and bad starts since making his season debut on July 2, carrying a 4.50 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP and a 23/7 K/BB ratio in 28 innings. If the pattern holds, Cain is on track for good fortune in Atlanta against the Braves in his next start.
