Giants SP Chris Heston continues August stumbles


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/30/2015) 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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2015) 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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2015) 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


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2015) Giants pitcher Chris Heston was unable to get past the fifth inning during Monday's 2-1 loss to the Cardinals.

Heston only allowed one run on four hits before leaving after 4 2/3 innings. 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.

Heston is winless in his last four starts and has just one quality start in those outings.


SP Chris Heston tough-luck loser for Giants


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/12/2015) 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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2015) 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


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/2/2015) 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.


Giants SP Chris Heston earns win in Monday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Giants pitcher Chris Heston continued his impressive season Monday when he earned his 11th win of the season during the 4-2 win over the Brewers.

Heston allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings of work to lower his ERA to 3.14. He also struck out four and walked three.

Heston has now won his last three starts and has not lost a start in his last seven outings. He has also earned a quality start in each of his last six starts.


Giants SP Chris Heston earns 10th win of season Tuesday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2015) Giants pitcher Chris Heston was nearly unhittable during Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Padres.

Heston did not surrender a run and only allowed one hit over 7 1/3 innings of work. He also struck out six and walked two. He is now 10-5 with a 3.18 ERA in 19 starts this season.

Heston has not lost a decision since June 14 and has earned a quality start in each of his last five starts.


Giants shuffle rotation, Ryan Vogelsong will head to bullpen


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/16/2015) The Giants will shuffle their rotation coming out of the All-Star break, according to CSN Bay Area.

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.

Vogelsong (6-6) has a 4.23 ERA with 70 strikeouts and 42 walks in 95 2/3 innings this season.


Giants SP Chris Heston notches another strong start


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/12/2015) Giants starter Chris Heston was sharp Sunday, holding the hapless Phillies to one run and seven hits over 6 2/3 innings in a 4-1 triumph. 

Heston improved to 9-5 on the season, striking out seven and walking none to close out the first half of his rookie campaign on a high note. He has now won three straight decisions. 

The rookie also has not allowed a home run in any of his last nine starts, and has lowered his ERA to 3.39. 


Giants' Chris Heston has 7 1/3 innings in no-decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2015) Giants starter Chris Heston turned in 7 1/3 shutout innings, allowing three hits.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/1/2015) Giants startng  pitcher Chris Heston picked up a no-decision during Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

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.


Giants SP Chris Heston earns win in Thursday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Giants SP Chris Heston improves to 7-5 with win on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/20/2015) Giants starter Chris Heston earned his seventh win of the season in Friday's 9-5 win over the Dodgers. Heston gave up three runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings. He struck out one and did not walk a batter, and he was removed after throwing just 75 pitches.

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
(6/3/2015) Giants pitcher Chris Heston had a dismal performance during Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Pirates.

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.
