GIANTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Giants clinch series win against Padres, score week's worth of runs

The Padres scored two runs on Tuesday night, but the Giants were able to overcome the long odds and win, 8-2. The death of the five-runs-or-fewer streak was unceremonious. There was a line drive to center, with the center fielder shifting and playing in fourth-left or quint-right. Then there was an intentional walk with no outs -- I don't know, man -- and another walk and a double...

His 688 career intentional free passes are more than twice as many as the player in second place on the all-time list, Albert Pujols (who has *just* 297). Bryce Harper got the Bonds treatment in...
