      Giants SP Chris Heston earns win despite so-so outing

      Giants starting pitcher Chris Heston (12-10) didn't pitch well Sunday (5 IP, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K), but did get the win over the Athletics. Heston picked up his first win since July 27 (4.88 ERA over that span), but the overall results were still poor. The league has apparently caught up with him since bursting on the scene as a rookie this year. Despite faltering down the stretch, Heston has a decent shot at making the rotation next year, filling the vacant spot left by Tim Hudson.

      Wildness hurts Giants SP Chris Heston in no-decision Tuesday

      Giants starter Chris Heston took a no-decision Tuesday against Cincinnati as he allowed three runs on three hits and four walks over five innings. He struck out eight. Heston's control has been an issue in the second half; he has walked at least four batters in a game five times this season, and all of them have come since June. On the other hand, Heston was nasty Tuesday, as he induced 15 swinging strikes on 91 pitches and his eight strikeouts ranks third out of his 28 starts this year. Heston's ERA is up to 3.61.

      Giants SP Chris Heston continues August stumbles

      Chris Heston has been a pleasant surprise for the Giants this season, but in the dog days of August, he's experienced a rough patch that continued Sunday when he couldn't get out of the fourth inning in a loss against the Cardinals. Heston managed to go just 3 2/3 innings, allowing five runs on nine hits, two of them home runs. And while he managed not to walk anyone after combining for nine free passes in his last two starts, he only struck out one batter. In five August starts, Heston (11-8) went longer than 4 2/3 innings only once, and finished the month 0-3 with two no-decisions.

      Report: Giants to start Chris Heston over Matt Cain on Sunday

      The Giants are planning to promote and start Chris Heston rather than Matt Cain on Sunday against St. Louis, according to CSN Bay Area, which explans that the former threw a bullpen session Wednesday to prepare himself for the outing. Cain has been a mess most of the year. He allowed six runs in in five innings Tuesday to the Cubs to lower his record to 2-4 and raise his ERA to 6.15. If he is indeed getting skipped this weekend, it remains to be seen if he is permanently out of the rotation as San Francisco continues to fight for a playoff spot.

      Giants demote SP Chris Heston to Triple-A Sacramento

      In a rather surprising move, the Giants have sent starter Chris Heston to Triple-A Sacramento to make room on their roster for Marlon Byrd. Heston has been a mainstay in the rotation, but has lately been unable to go deep into games. He has failed to make it through the fifth inning in three of his last four starts and has walked 13 over his last 19 2/3 innings. Still, he does own an 11-7 record and 3.34 ERA on the year.

      Giants SP Chris Heston fails to last five innings Monday

He also struck out four and walked five. His lone mistake was giving up a solo home run to Yadier Molina in the fourth inning.

      SP Chris Heston tough-luck loser for Giants

      Giants starter Chris Heston put together a solid outing Wednesday, but one mistake against the Astros saddled him with a loss. Heston went 6 1/3 innings, giving up just three hits while striking out four hitters. But he battled with his command, issuing four walks, and allowed a solo home run to Colby Rasmus that would prove to be the difference in a tight game. Heston (11-7) has now lost two straight starts after a five-game winning streak.

      Giants SP Chris Heston suffers through second straight poor start

      It remains to be seen if Giants rookie starter Chris Heston has begun an extended slide after a surprisingly strong run, but his effort Thursday against the host Cubs was certainly far from scintillating. Heston's second consecutive poor outing was his worst since June 2. He gave up five runs on five hits in just four innings with two walks and one strikeout. He barely made it out of the second inning. Two walks, a hit batsmen and two-run single by Jorge Soler got him off to a bad start in the first and a three-run homer by Kyle Schwarber in the second nearly knocked him out. He retired the last seven batters he faced, but it was too late to save his performance. Heston has yielded eight runs on 12 hits over his last 8 2/3 innings to weaken his ERA to 3.48.

      Giants' Chris Heston can't go five innings on Saturday vs. Rangers

      Giants starter Chris Heston labored in his outing against the Rangers on Saturday. The young right-hander allowed three runs on seven hits, but was unable to get out of the fifth inning. He lasted 4 2/3, walking two and striking out two. He threw 93 pitches, with just 51 going for strikes. Heston took a no-decision, as the Giants won the game 9-7 in extra innings. He got off to a shaky start, giving up two runs in the first inning. He got through the next two frames unscathed, despite a couple of baserunners. But he allowed a third run in the fourth, and was never really able to get anything going in this one. Still, Heston is 3-0 with a very solid 1.64 ERA over his past five starts.
