Giants end sour season with a win, lose first pick

With this game being strictly for pride and bragging rights, I'd advise putting your money elsewhere, but for the sake of a pick, the Giants have had success against San Diego with Cueto on the bump, and I think the Giants will want to send their fans home happy after such a poor season, so I'd lay the juice with San Fran if I had to.

Cain's contract with San Francisco expires at the end of this season, and the Giants were not expected to offer him a new deal. He gave a long leash to starter Johnny Cueto, who scattered 12 hits and four earned runs over five up-and-down innings of work.

Friday: Did not play in an 8-0 loss to San Francisco.

Hunter Renfroe was 2 for 4 with a home run.

United Nations 'carefully optimistic' on Fatah-Hamas reconciliation
Hamas is preparing to receive a delegation from the Palestinian government in the West Bank, scheduled to arrive today. The potential outcomes are numerous, including the very real possibility that the unity talks will once again fail.

The Padres (71-91) lost for the sixth time in seven games as they concluded their seventh straight losing season with a modest improvement of three more wins than last season. Matt Williams, the third overall pick in 1986, came onto the field during the seventh inning stretch to give away a vehicle. Buster Posey, the fifth overall pick in the 2008 draft, hit cleanup and smashed a leadoff double in the bottom of the second and then drew a walk in the bottom of the fourth.

Pablo Sandoval fittingly ended the Giants' 2017 season on Sunday afternoon, drilling a walk-off solo home run in the ninth inning against Padres reliever Phil Maton. His on-base percentage is.350, his OPS.704. Luis Perdomo will start the finale and is 8-11 with a 4.65 ERA and 114 strikeouts this season.

After Cory Spangenberg singled pinch-runner Matt Szczur to third, Dyson struck out Hunter Renfroe before Hedges' liner to right-center barely eluded right fielder Pence, easily scoring both baserunners for a 3-2 lead.
