Chris Heston was pounded by the Padres on Wednesday, allowing 11 hits and five runs over five innings of work in the loss.

Heston was lucky to escape without more damage, as he allowed 14 baserunners on the afternoon. He's now turned in two subpar starts in his last three outings after a stellar beginning to the year. It seems the carriage may be turning back into a pumpkin, but he shouldn't be completely left for dead yet. Tuesday's start at the Astros will be an important one for the 27-year-old.

Jake Peavy (back) could be cleared to begin a rehab assignment if he gets through another bullpen session on Friday with no issues.

It's not clear at this point how many rehab starts he'll need. Peavy has battled back issues since the beginning of the season, being limited to two starts.
May 6 - 3:02 PM

Giants general manager Bobby Evans said in an interview on SiriusXM Wednesday that Hunter Pence (forearm) will need 7-10 rehab games.

Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that Pence could begin a rehab assignment within the next week, so the beginning of three-game home series against the Dodgers on 19 looks to be a probable return date if all goes well. Pence will continue taking batting practice through Friday before likely officially being cleared for an assignment to a minor league affiliate.

Casey McGehee is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

It's the second straight day off for the struggling third baseman. Matt Duffy is at the hot corner Wednesday in McGehee's place.
May 6 - 1:30 PM

Buster Posey is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

He's just getting some rest with it being a day game after a night game. Andrew Susac is catching Chris Heston.
May 6 - 1:28 PM

Angel Pagan (finger) is back in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

Pagan suffered a laceration on his left middle finger when he slid into second base on Monday, but he's back in there after one day of rest. The outfielder sports a nifty .350/.373/.447 batting line this season.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that Hunter Pence (forearm) could begin a rehab assignment within the next week.

Bochy was impressed with how Pence looked during hitting drills Tuesday. "His BP today got better as it went," Bochy said. "He started on a tee, then worked off a machine. They got it cranked up pretty good." Pence will continue taking batting practice through Friday and could be cleared for a rehab assignment after that.

Brandon Crawford reached base all four times he came to the plate, helping the Giants seal a 6-0 win against the Padres on Tuesday.

Crawford singled twice, doubled, and walked on the evening. He scored after walking in the second, and scored again in the third following an RBI single. Crawford is now batting a highly productive .262/.374/.512 with five home runs and 15 RBI, emerging as one of the Giants' key contributors through the season's first month and change.
May 6 - 12:50 AM

Joe Panik went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, helping the Giants emerge victorious over the Padres on Tuesday.

Panik belted a solo home run to right field in the fifth inning off of Andrew Cashner, pushing the Giants' lead to 6-0, the score by which they would eventually win. It's the second long ball of the season for Panik, who has driven in nine runs and is hitting .292/.350/.438. Panik is hitting nearly as well as he did last year in terms of average and has shown more power, which the Giants are certainly happy to see.
May 6 - 12:47 AM

Ryan Vogelsong delivered seven scoreless innings to earn a win versus the Padres on Tuesday.

Vogelsong had not performed well in two relief appearances and three starts coming into Tuesday's outing, but he managed to shut down the Padres, claiming ownership of baseball's best offense. The right-hander held them to three hits (all singles) and two walks while striking out four. The sterling performance lowers his ERA to 6.84 and his WHIP to 1.67 with a 21/13 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings. Vogelsong will look for a repeat performance in a home start against the Marlins next.
May 6 - 12:42 AM

Angel Pagan has been scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a laceration on his left middle finger.

Pagan injured the finger sliding into second base on Monday, cracking the nail of the finger after his hand was stepped on. Justin Maxwell will get the right field start, with Gregor Blanco moving to center. Pagan is considered day-to-day.
May 5 - 9:28 PM

Casey McGehee is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres.

McGehee is getting Tuesday and possibly Wednesday off, as he's admitted to pressing at the plate. Fans have started to boo the third baseman, who is hitting just .181/.234/.264. A few days off could help clear his head.
May 5 - 8:03 PM

Santiago Casilla worked a scoreless ninth inning for his eighth save as the Giants enjoyed a 2-0 win over the Padres on Monday.

Casilla worked around a one-out Brandon Belt fielding error, which allowed Justin Upton to reach safely and bring the tying run to the plate. He struck out Yangervis Solarte, then got Jedd Gyorko to fly out to right field to end the game. Casilla is 8-for-10 in save situations thus far with a 2.13 ERA and a 9/4 K/BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings.
May 5 - 1:10 AM

Angel Pagan's RBI single in the third inning proved to be the only run the Giants would need in Monday's victory against the Padres.

One run was enough with the way Madison Bumgarner pitched for the Giants. They gave him two. Pagan came to the plate in the third inning with runners on first and second and no outs, serving a Tyson Ross offering to left-center to plate the first run of the game. The veteran outfielder has hit safely in nine out of his last 10 games and is now hitting .350/.373/.447 with eight RBI in 110 plate appearances.
May 5 - 1:08 AM

Madison Bumgarner flirted with a no-hitter in Monday's win against the Padres, tossing 7 1/3 scoreless innings.

Justin Upton singled to lead off the seventh inning, ending Bumgarner's attempt at a no-hitter. Yangervis Solarte followed up with a single himself, but Bumgarner saw himself out of the no-out jam with no further damage. They were the only two hits he allowed. He issued only one walk while striking out six. The lefty has put together back-to-back dominant outings, lowering his ERA to 3.03. Bumgarner also owns a 1.06 WHIP with a 32/6 K/BB ratio in 38 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Marlins at home next.
