by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

The Giants will go with Matt Cain, Jake Peavy, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Hudson and Chris Heston once they return to the field. This leaves starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong as the odd man out in the rotation, which will push him into the bullpen.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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.


Giants SP Chris Heston tosses five innings, takes loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/14/2015) Giants starter Chris Heston showed up to play against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, but his offense didn't.

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.


Giants' Chris Heston throws no-hitter


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2015) Giants rookie pitcher Chris Heston threw a no-hitter against the Mets on Tuesday. 

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. 


Giants SP Chris Heston struggles in Tuesday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Heston allowed five runs on seven hits before being pulled after pitching 3 2/3 innings. He also struck out six and walked three during the outing.

Tuesday's start was quite different than his last outing when he did not allow a run in 7 1/3 innings. Heston has given up at least five runs in three of his last four starts.

"I needed to be able to slow myself down, take a step back a little bit and go back to attacking guys," said Heston, per MLB.com

His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday at the New York Mets.


Giants SP Chris Heston does not surrender a run Thursday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) Making just the 10th start of his career, Giants pitcher Chris Heston tossed 7 1/3 scoreless innings during Thursday's 7-0 win over the Braves.

Heston left in the eighth inning after allowing a single to Andrelton Simmons and then getting an infielder’s choice groundout. He struck out six batters and walked one during the outing. He lowered his ERA from 4.33 to 3.82.

Thursday's impressive start for Heston (5-3) came after back-to-back poor outings. He has six quality starts in his first 10 starts. Heston is 3-0 in his last four starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Pirates.


Giants SP Chris Heston gives up six runs, gets win on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/23/2015) Giants pitcher Chris Heston struggled in his start on Saturday against the Rockies. The rookie right-hander was tagged for six runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out two. His offense bailed him out, however, as he was able to record his fourth win of the season.

Heston (4-3) served up a solo home run to Ben Paulsen in the bottom of the second. But most of the damage came in the fifth and sixth innings. Heston surrendered a solo home run to Nick Hundley and a two-run blast to Charlie Blackmon, each coming in the fith. 

This makes back-to-back poor outings for Heston, who now sports a 4.33 ERA. He has been solid for most of the season, posting quality starts in five of his nine starts so far. He'll look to get back in the win column in his next start, scheduled for Thursday against the Braves.


Giants' Chris Heston chased in third inning Sunday vs. Reds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Giants pitcher Chris Heston wasn't a factor in the decision Sunday, allowing five earned runs on seven hits and two walks in two-plus innings while striking out two in his team's 9-8 win over the Reds.

Heston gave up one run in the first two innings before the wheels came off in the third. He allowed six straight batters to reach base before coming out of the game, though the Giants were able to maintain their lead after scoring six runs of their own in the first three innings.

Heston owns a 3.72 ERA and 41:12 K:BB ratio in 48 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rockies in Colorado Saturday.


Giants SP Chris Heston Ks 10, goes the distance vs. Astros


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Giants starter Chris Heston struck out 10, went the distance and retired the last 22 batters he faced in a dominant 8-1 victory over the Astros.

Heston allowed a solo home run to Jason Castro for his only damage of the evening. He permitted one earned run on two hits and no walks in nine innings of work. He twirled a gem with 70 strikes in 107 pitches to improve to 3-3 with a 2.91 ERA this season.

"I just pound the bottom of the strike zone," Heston said, per MLB.com. "Everything below the knees, really. Anything above the knees is probably up."

Heston has allowed one earned run in four of his last six starts. He will look to keep rolling Sunday afternoon in Cincinnati.


Giants P Chris Heston gives up 11 hits in Wednesday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Giants' Bochy won't move starters up after Peavy sent to DL


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday that he will insert either Ryan Vogelsong or Yusmeiro Petit into the rotation against the Dodgers Thursday rather than alter his other starters' schedules after Jake Peavy was placed on the disabled list, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The Giants have an off-day Monday, and the team's regular rotation will receive extra rest rather than bump up in order to cover for Peavy's absence. That will leave Chris Heston and Tim Hudson to face the Rockies in Colorado Friday and Saturday, respectively.


Giants pitcher Chris Heston allows one run in win Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Giants pitcher Chris Heston allowed one run on five hits in 7 2/3 innings Saturday in San Francisco's 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Heston made just one mistake in the outing, allowing a leadoff home run to David Peralta in the fourth inning. He settled down and sent the remaining hitters down in order. Heston allowed just one hit over his last three innings of work.

"He's a four-pitch guy with command," Giants manager Bruce Bochy, referring to Heston's fastball, sinker, curveball and changeup, said after the game, per MLB.com. "That really works."

Heston, now 2-1, boasts a blistering 0.87 ERA in three starts and will look to keep rolling Friday against the Rockies.


Giants P Chris Heston picks up loss Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Despite producing a solid seven innings of work during Monday's game, Giants pitcher Chris Heston received the loss against the Rockies.

"He looked like he was throwing Wiffle balls up there," Giants third baseman Matt Duffy said, per MLB.com. "Everything was moving."

Heston allowed seven hits over the seven innings while striking out five and walking two. He allowed two runs with only one of the runs earned. He is now 1-1 on the season.

Heston said having Buster Posey behind the plate has given him confidence to trust his pitches. 

"Having Buster back there, you trust what [signs] he puts down, and I know if I can make my pitch, it'll turn out for the best," he said.

His next start will likely be Saturday against the Diamondbacks.
