Giants startng pitcher
Heston tossed six innings, allowed five hits and three earned runs. His command was spotty at times, but his only bad inning came in the third when he allowed three hits and three runs.
Heston (8-5) has a 3.78 ERA with 80 strikeouts and 26 walks in 97 2/3 innings this season.
During the outing, Heston allowed two runs on five hits. He also struck out six and walked one. He is now 8-5 with a 3.73 ERA.
Heston is now 3-1 in his last four starts and he has two quality starts over that time.
The young right-hander gave up a run in the second and two in the third for all the damage against him on Friday. This was his second start since his recent no-hitter, and he's been unable to get past the sixth inning in either outing.
Heston (7-5) increased his ERA to 3.83 with this outing, but his offense bailed him out with nine runs of support. He's set to take on the Padres at home his next time out on Thursday.
Heston threw five innings and allowed just two earned runs, but didn't receive a single run of support from his team and earned his fifth loss of the year. He walked four batters and struck out six as his command fluttered a bit.
''Chris threw all right. He worked hard,'' Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. ''He made more mistakes than normal but that was a good enough effort to keep us in the game.''
Heston (6-5) has a 3.76 ERA with 72 strikeouts in 79 innings this year.
Heston didn't walk a batter, but he hit three, keeping him from perfection. He struck out 11 and threw 110 pitches, 72 for strikes.
It's the 17th no-hitter in team history and the fourth in as many years for Giants pitchers. Matt Cain threw a perfect game in 2012, and Tim Lincecum had no hitters each of the last two seasons, the most recent on June 25, 2014.
"Attack the zone. Don’t let the nerves get to me. Just throw quality strikes, and that didn’t change in the ninth,” Heston said of his approach. “Some extra nerves going on. Taking a little more deep breaths out there. I realized it and it was awesome to be part of it
Heston improved to 6-4 and reduced his ERA to 3.68. His next start is Sunday against Arizona.
