Mike Morse looked finished as a major leaguer after just eight at-bats last year with the Pirates. But the Giants have so many injuries in the outfield that he was called up on Wednesday and since this is baseball of course he hit a pinch-hit home run in the eighth inning to tie the Dodgers.

Giants' Span to DL, Crawford to bereavement

The Giants placed Denard Span on the 10-day disabled list with a shoulder injury and Brandon Crawford on the three-day bereavement list, the team announced Wednesday.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

From the file of things you didn't expect to see in 2017: The Giants have purchased the contract of Mike Morse, who had just eight PAs in 2016 and didn't hit much in 2015 AND he's a lousy fielder. But the Giants are desperately seeking outfielders and Morse will be their 10th one already in April. Chances are we'll soon see No. 11.

Cain exits Giants' win with hamstring tightness

Giants pitcher Matt Cain was pulled because of right hamstring tightness before the start of the seventh inning in San Francisco's 2-1 victory over the Dodgers on Monday night.

Just your typical game-ending pickoff at second base as Buster Posey nails Justin Turner, who was trying to get a good jump as Adrian Gonzalez swing through a 3-1 fastball from Mark Melancon. That was two baserunner kills in the final two innings for Posey, as the Giants win 2-1 and temporarily stop the panic.
