San Francisco:

    All hell broke loose for Kyle Shanahan and his San Francisco 49ers last week. In the win over the New York Jets, multiple 49ers stars suffered nasty injuries which reduced their options for the Week Three clash at the MetLife Stadium. The likes of Jimmy Garoppolo, Nick Bosa, Raheem Mostert, and George Kittle were not part of the team on Sunday. Backup quarterback, Nick Mullens, started for the 49ers against New York Giants. He had one hell of a game throwing for 343 yards and completing on passing TD. Head Coach Kyle Shanahan had nothing but admiration reserved for his players. Here’s what he said in a rather emotional post-game press conference after Sunday’s win. ALSO READ- “Earl Thomas May Be...

The hotel markets in the San Jose-Santa Cruz and the San Francisco-San Mateo regions have been hammered during the months of coronavirus-linked business shutdowns, and the downturns in these Bay Area markets have turned out to be far worse than what’s going on in California, Atlas Hospitality reported Monday. “This is as bad as we have ever seen it for the hotel industry,” said Alan Reay, president of Irvine-based Atlas Hospitality. “After 9/11, or even compared with 2009, we have never, ever seen...

    The San Francisco Giants’ season ended in the worst way imaginable: a bad call from the home plate umpire. The San Francisco Giants entered the final day of the truncated MLB season with a chance of clinching a playoff berth. All they needed was to defeat the rival San Diego Padres and for the Milwaukee Brewers to lose to the St. Louis Cardinals to clinch the eighth seed in the NL-side of the postseason bracket. That didn’t happen, as the Brewers won on Sunday, thus taking the final spot. With a berth out of the question, the Giants tried to end their regular-season with a victory. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen for the Giants as they lost 5-4 to the Padres,...
    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants had their postseason hopes dashed on the final day of the regular season, losing 5-4 to the playoff-bound San Diego Padres on Sunday. San Francisco finished 29-31 under first-year manager Gabe Kapler, beginning the day tied with Milwaukee for the final NL playoff spot. The Brewers hold the tiebreaker, which meant the Giants needed to win and have Milwaukee lose at St. Louis — the Brewers did their part but the Giants couldn’t. Now, the Giants’ drought reaches four years since they lost a four-game division series in 2016 to the eventual World Series champion Cubs.

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — After putting up decent efforts in their first two games under Joe Judge, the winless New York Giants took a major step back in Week 3. Not only was it a step in the wrong direction, the Giants’ performance in the 36-9 loss to the San Francisco 49ers was embarrassing Sunday. The Niners (2-1) came into the game missing at least eight starters after an injury-filled win over the New York Jets last weekend. They were going to rely on backup quarterback Nick Mullen and a defense that would be missing four starters, including NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Nick Bosa. The San Francisco backups put on a flawless performance on both sides of...

    GETTY The San Francisco 49ers take the field before the game against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on September 27, 2020 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants released veteran right-hander Jeff Samardzija on Saturday, a day after he returned from a lengthy shoulder injury and rehab. Samardzija, an 11-game winner in 2019, was designated for assignment and placed on unconditional release waivers days before his contract was to expire. The 35-year-old pitcher signed a $90 million, five-year contract with San Francisco in December 2015, but spent much of his Giants tenure sidelined by injuries. “I usually sit on the bench for a few minutes before I get ready to go. Sitting there was definitely a little emotional. You take for granted all those times before you’ve done it,” Samardzija said of reflecting Friday. “You’re just always going to...
    Before taking the mound at Oracle Park for the final regular season start with the San Francisco Giants, Jeff Samardzija sat on the dugout bench and thought about the memories he made during a five-year tenure with the club. “It’s like you’re always going to be there, always going to have that opportunity,” Samardzija said. “But we all know time goes by real fast. Looking at the stadium, it’s tough. I’ve had a lot of fun here. I very much enjoyed my time here. I was taking it all in.” Samardzija didn’t have much time to reflect after a 6-5 walk-off loss on Friday. The Giants designated him for assignment and placed him on unconditional release waivers with...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — What started as an idea between rapper China Mac and actor Will Lex Ham has now become a national movement called ‘They Can’t Burn Us All.’ China Mac and Ham helped organized the first marches in New York City after an 89-year-old grandmother was slapped in the face and set on fire in Brooklyn in July. It’s one of a number of anti-Asian attacks reported amid the COVID Pandemic. “‘They Can’t Burn Us All’ is unity, right, because they can burn one of us if we’re alone, and when I say ‘they’ I don’t mean a particular type of people, just ‘they’ as in anyone who is coming to harm us,” said China Mac....

With right-hander Sam Coonrod on the mound attempting to close out the team’s second win of the day, Padres center fielder Trent Grisham stepped to the plate and yanked a three-run home run into the right field arcade at Oracle Park to drop the Giants back to .500 in a game that could have brought San Francisco within inches of a postseason berth. After the Giants and Padres had two...

    (CNN)San Francisco birds started singing differently in the quiet of the coronavirus lockdown, says a study in Science. Before, urban white-crowned sparrow's breeding territories were almost three times as loud as rural territories, the study found. But during the pandemic, researchers noted that noise levels in urban areas were drastically lower. In fact, they were consistent with traffic flow in the mid-1950s. "In other words, the Covid-19 shutdown created a proverbial silent spring across the SF Bay Area," researchers noted. By analyzing traffic flow data from the Golden Gate Bridge, researchers found that vehicle crossings from April to May 2020 returned to levels not seen since 1954. While noise recordings are not available from the 1950s, researchers said this indicates...
