by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Giants reliever Yusmeiro Petit picked up the win in Game 4 of the NLCS Wednesday, allowing just one hit and one walk in three scoreless innings while striking out four in his team's 6-4 victory over the Cardinals.

Petit (2-0) won his first postseason appearance in the previous round, stringing together six scoreless innings in his team's 18-inning win over the Nationals. He was just as impressive in a shorter outing Wednesday, cleaning up after starter Ryan Vogelsong lasted just three innings. The Giants head into Wednesday's Game 5 with a 3-1 lead and three chances to advance to the World Series.

He allowed three runs on five hits and one walk over 5 1/3 innings of work. The Padres scored five runs in the seventh inning to knock him out of the decision.

Petit finishes the regular season 5-5 with a 3.69 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP and 133:22 K:BB ratio over 117 innings.


Yusmeiro Petit drops one Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Petit allowed three runs, two earned, on four hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked three during the outing. Petit gave up his first run in the third inning. After a leadoff double, Yangervis Solarte managed to reach on an error. The run scored on a play, but was unearned. He gave up his other two runs in the sixth inning. With two men on base, Rene Rivera doubled in both runs. 

With the loss, Petit dropped to 5-5. He’ll take on the Padres in his next start.


Yusmeiro Petit good, but not good enough Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Giants starter Yusmeiro Petit pitched well Sunday against the Dodgers - but that's rarely good enough to beat Clayton Kershaw.

Petit allowed three earned runs on eight hits in seven innings with no walks and eight strikeouts. He was doomed by a two-run homer off the bat of Matt Kemp in the sixth. Petit has surrendered just four runs in his last 16 innings pitched.

He will try to remain on a roll Saturday in San Diego.


Yusmeiro Petit strikes out nine in complete-game win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit spun a complete-game victory Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on four hits in nine innings and striking out nine in his team's 5-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Petit (5-3) served up a solo home run in the fourth inning but was brilliant otherwise. He needed just 84 pitches to record 27 outs in the win. Petit owns a 3.62 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 110:18 K:BB ratio in 99 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Dodgers Sunday.


Yusmeiro Petit surrenders six runs vs. Rockies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing six earned runs on seven hits and one walk in four innings while striking out five in his team's 12-7 win over the Rockies.

Petit was brutal with runners on base Tuesday, giving up a two-run double, a two-run triple and a two-run home run in his first three innings of work. It was a massive course correction after the pitcher set a major-league record with 46 straight batters retired, a streak that ended in his previous outing. Petit owns a 3.89 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 101:18 K:BB ratio in 90 1/3 innings.


Yusmeiro Petit will remain in rotation for now


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit will remain in the team's rotation for at least another turn, according to CSN.

Petit will make his next start in Colorado. He started in place of Tim Lincecum Thursday, and turned in a solid start. Petit has a 3.44 ERA over 86 1/3 innings. 


Yusmeiro Petit wins one, breaks record


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit turned in an excellent start Thursday against the Rockies. 

Petit allowed one run on four hits over six innings. He struck out nine and did not issue any walks. Petit didn't allow a hit until the third inning. That's significant because Petit broke the MLB single-season record by retiring 46 consecutive hitters. Petit had been pitching out of the bullpen recently, and had not allowed a hit over his last six appearances. 

While Colorado would scratch a win across in the third, Petit wasn't flustered. He was able to get through the last three innings without giving up another run. With the win, Petit improved to 4-3. He'll take on the Rockies if he remains in the rotation for another start. 


Yusmeiro Petit to start Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit will start Thursday against the Rockies, according to MLB.com.

Petit will replace the struggling Tim Lincecum in the team's rotation. It's unclear if this is just a one time deal, or whether Petit will receive more than one turn through the rotation. Petit has a 3.59 ERA over 80 1/3 innings. 


Yusmeiro Petit gets knocked around Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit was knocked around Tuesday against the Phillies. 

Petit lasted five innings, giving up five runs on seven hits. Things started out poorly, as Petit put the first three runners of the game on base. He was able to get three straight outs after that, but not before two runs scored. Petit then settled in, tossing three scoreless innings. In the fifth, Jimmy Rollins ended that stretch with a two-run homer. Marlon Byrd would add an insurance run on a double later in the inning.

With the loss, Petit falls to 3-4 on the year. His next start will come against the Giants. 


Yusmerio Petit joining Giants' rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) The Giants have named Yusmeiro Petit as Matt Cain's replacement in the rotation after the team placed Cain on the 15-day disabled list Monday due to right elbow inflammation. Petit will start Tuesday against the Phillies.

Petit is 1-2 with a 5.81 ERA in five starts this season. He is 2-1 with a 2.45 ERA in 12 relief appearances.


Yusmeiro Petit delivers six one-run innings vs. Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit did a fine job filling in for the injured Matt Cain Saturday, giving up just one earned run on two hits and one walk in six innings while striking out five, but he was still charged with a loss in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Cardinals.

Petit (3-3) could have delivered at least one more inning, but a rain delay after the sixth caused him to be removed after just 74 pitches. His one run came on a fifth-inning home run by Cardinals rookie Oscar Taveras, who was making his major-league debut. Petit owns a 4.60 ERA and 43:9 K:BB ratio in 45 innings. His next start will come Friday against the Mets.


Matt Cain won't start Saturday, heading to DL


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain will miss his second start in a row Saturday against the Cardinals due to a hamstring injury, the team announced Friday.

Cain's injury is not considered a serious long-term issue, but it is enough of a question that the team wants to give him some extra time off. Yusmeiro Petit will start in his place, and the San Francisco Chronicle reports the team will recall a player from Triple-A, indicating a DL trip is on the way for Cain.

If that happens Cain could be on the DL just until his next turn in the rotation, since they can make the move retroactive to May 22. Manager Bruce Bochy said he needs to discuss that with general manager Brian Sabean first, however. 


Yusmeiro Petit takes the loss in spot start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit (3-2) made another spot start on Monday and was pegged with the loss, in an 8-4 defeat to the Cubs. The right-hander permitted four runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five in five innings of work.

Petit owns a 5.08 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP in 39 innings of work. If Matt Cain isn't ready to make his next start Saturday in St. Louis, the team will likely turn to Petit for another spot start.

Yusmeiro Petit scheduled to start Memorial Day


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit has replaced the injured Matt Cain as the probable starter for Monday's Memorial Day showdown with the Cubs, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Cain has been ruled out due to a hamstring strain. Petit has made three spot starts this season, filling in twice for Cain and once for Tim Hudson. On the year, he is 3-1 with a 4.76 ERA and 33:8 K:BB ratio in 34 innings.


Yusmeiro Petit hit hard in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Giants starting pitcher Yusmeiro Petit did not impress in a spot start Friday, in a 7-5 loss to the Marlins.

Petit allowed runs in all but one of his five innings of work, beginning with a leadoff home run to Christian Yelich. He was charged with five runs -- four earned -- on seven hits in five innings, though he avoided any walks and struck out five on 90 pitches.

Petit hasn't had a consistent role this season, appearing in 12 games, including three as a starter. He has a 5.23 ERA in 31 innings of work, and will likely return to a  bullpen role with Tim Hudson expected to miss just one start. 


Yusmeiro Petit gets the emergency start Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit will start Friday against the Marlins.

Petit is taking the place of Tim Hudson, who is dealing with an injured hip. Petit has moved in and out of the bullpen this year, posting a 4.85 ERA over 26 innings. He's posted a 6.97 ERA in his two starts. 


Yusmeiro Petit gets pummeled by Pirates in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2014) Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit got pummeled by the Pirates on Monday, but somehow managed to escape his outing with a no-decision. Making his second start of the season, Petit allowed eight runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out four over 4 1/3 innings.

Petit has allowed eight earned runs over his last two starts (10 1/3 innings). His ERA ballooned from 2.61 to 5.04 after Monday's start. He'll likely return to the bullpen once Matt Cain is activated from the disabled list this weekend.

Yusmeiro Petit gets the nod again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2014) With Matt Cain (finger) on the disabled list, Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit will make another spot start Monday in Pittsburgh. Petit tossed six scoreless innings last Tuesday against the Padres and sports a 2.61 ERA in 20 2/3 innings.

Yusmeiro Petit likely to make spot-start Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Yusmeiro Petit makes most of opportunity in win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Named the starter of Tuesday's game against the Padres after scheduled starter Matt Cain was scratched with an injury, Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit surrendered just three hits over six scoreless innings while striking out four and walking none in his team's 6-0 win over the Padres.

Petit (2-1) was excellent on short notice in his second start of the season, limiting the Padres to two singles and a double, with all three hits coming with no runners on base. Cain is expected to be fine for his next start, so Petit will return to the bullpen moving forward. He owns a 2.61 ERA and 20:4 K:BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings.


Matt Cain scratched Tuesday with cut finger


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Giants pitcher Matt Cain was scratched from Tuesday's scheduled start against the Padres after cutting his right index finger, the team announced.

Yusmeiro Petit follows up gem with dud in Thursday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) The first back-to-back performance this season by Giants reliever Yusmeiro Petit did not end as well as it began.

One day after throwing two shutout innings and striking out out four, he took the loss Thursday night against Arizona. Petit gave up singles to Cliff Pennington and Tony Campana in the 10th inning to turn a 5-5 tie into a 6-5 defeat. Petit allowed both Diamondbacks to steal bases as well.
