CHICAGO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants have activated outfielder Mac Williamson from the 10-day disabled list and sent left-hander Josh Osich to Triple-A Sacramento.

Williamson homers again, Giants top Nationals 4-3
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Mac Williamson had to dust himself off after crashing into a low padded wall near the stands in left field while chasing a foul ball.
More frustrated than hurt, Williamson took it out on Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark a few moments later after undergoing a series of concussion tests in the dugout.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Washington Nationals have put right-handed reliever Shawn Kelley on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday because of ulnar nerve irritation in his pitching elbow.
Kelley, who turns 34 on Thursday, has a history of elbow trouble and has twice come back from Tommy John surgery. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI test on his elbow when the Nationals return to Washington later this week.
Nationals demote Matt Reynolds, send Shawn Kelley to disabled list
The Washington Nationals, after calling up three pitchers from Triple-A Syracuse in three days last weekend, made a flurry of roster moves before Tuesday night's game in San Francisco.
But none of them involved calling up a pitcher from Syracuse.
The Nationals sent veteran reliever Shawn Kelley to the disabled list and demoted to Triple-A veteran infielder/outfielder Matt Reynolds, who began the year at Syracuse but had just one hit in 12 at-bats for the big-league club.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Mac Williamson remade his swing during the offseason to become a more consistent power hitter. He added a leg kick, lowered his hands, found better balance all in an effort to keep the bat in the zone longer and give himself more room for error.
Whatever he did, it's working. He crushed a ball into the wind.
Kershaw wins 18th, Grandal powers Dodgers past Giants 3-1
LOS ANGELES (AP) — In a couple of months, Clayton Kershaw might need to make some room at home for a fourth NL Cy Young Award.
Kershaw became the first 18-game winner in the majors, pitching eight stingy innings to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers over the San Francisco Giants 3-1 on Sunday.
Projected record: 88-74Projected run differential: +59Rejoice, non-San Francisco baseball fans: the Giants' "Even Year Magic" is officially over. Though San Francisco has been stripped of its voodoo wizardry, the team still features much of the same core that won three World Series titles. The team did not re-sign Angel Pagan, which opens up left field for a platoon of Jarrett Parker...
NEW YORK -- The Giants began their three-city trip in first place. They'll come home in first place.
There's your silver lining. Now, about all that gray, ominous stuff in the middle...
Their 5-2 loss to the New York Yankees on Sunday brought a merciful end to a 1-7 trip in which they gave back half their advantage in the division standings. They hit .127 in 71 at-bats with runners in scoring position.

NEW YORK (AP) — Mac Williamson had crossed paths with Ivan Nova before.
"Fun fact about Nova. I had TJ the same day he did," the San Francisco Giants rookie said, thinking back to their visit to Dr. James Andrews for Tommy John surgery on April 29, 2014. "How many guys face each other after you have surgery, the same day, the same surgeon? That's kind of cool."
Williamson started the comeback with a home run off Nova leading off the fifth inning, then hit a...
San Francisco Giants Regain Winning Ways, Beat New York Yankees in 12 Innings
NEW YORK -- There are must-win games to avoid elimination. There are must-win games to restore sanity.
And there are must-win games that might save a clubhouse from becoming a powder keg. Giants manager Bruce Bochy barked in anger after an inattentive Angel Pagan failed to score on a wild pitch in the 11th inning Saturday at Yankee Stadium. It was the kind of mistake that cannot happen for a team that is not getting clutch hits or finding any breaks.
BOSTON - Drew Pomeranz didn't win over the trust of skeptical Boston Red Sox fans on Wednesday night.
If anything, his list of doubters only grew.
The newest member of the Red Sox starting rotation, the man who Boston rolled the dice and traded for from the San Diego Padres last week at the expense of treasured 18-year-old right-hander Anderson Espinoza, made his team debut at Fenway Park against the San Francisco Giants. With a chance to back-up the gamble taken by...
