New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley bought his parents a new house and didn’t need his first contract to make it happen.
That is where some of that fresh endorsement money from Nike, Pepsi and Panini America is headed. Barkley doesn’t plan to use his football earnings on any lavish purchases, such as the home he recently bought for his family in Whitehall, Pennsylvania.
Barkley hasn’t even signed his rookie contract with the Giants, who made him the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft.
That’s the goal, Barkley said. Not to touch it.
Arizona’s real trouble came in San Francisco’s four-run third, which included five singles. One of them, a dribbler up the middle by Pablo Sandoval, drove in two runs. Crawford walked with the bases loaded to bring in another run.
With right-handers Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija due back from the disabled list soon, there might not be room for Rodriguez and/or Suarez in the rotation.
We want our guys back but at the same time when they’re throwing like this it does give you the luxury of making sure your guys are ready, Bochy said. Depth is going to be so important. We’re at the halfway point. You never know what can happen and it’s been great the way Suarez and Rodriguez have come up here and handled themselves.
Giants: Cueto (right elbow sprain) threw four scoreless innings Friday night in his second rehab appearance for Triple-A Sacramento. He allowed four hits, struck out six and walked one.
