In his fourth season with the San Francisco, was used as the Giants' long reliever en route to appearing in a career-high 42 games...Pitched two-ormore innings in 20 of 41 relief appearances...Made one start, May 23 at COL...Opponents hit .211 (16-for-76) off him with runners in scoring position... Relieved RHP Tim Lincecum on May 8 at Miami and tossed 3.0 scoreless, no-hit innings to earn his first career save in SFG's 6-0 win...According to Elias, no Giants pitcher had picked up a save by throwing 3.0-scoreless innings without allowing a hit since Jeff Brantley in 1991.


Went 5-5 with a 3.69 ERA (48er, 117.0ip) in 39 appearances (12 starts)...Was inserted into the Giants' rotation on Aug. 28 in place of Tim Lincecum, who had struggled in a starting role... his first six starts came in place of either Matt Cain (five times) or Tim Hudson (once), both of whom dealt with injuries...Went 3-4 with a 5.03 ERA (38er, 68.0ip) in his 12 starts... he was 2-1 with a 1.84 ERA (10er, 49.0ip) in 27 appearances out of the bullpen...Established career-highs in wins (five), innings pitched (117.0) and strikeouts (133)...Ranked sixth in the Majors in strikeouts per 9.0 innings (10.23) among pitchers with at least 100.0 innings pitched...also, finished eighth with a 6.05 K/BB ratio...Held right-handed batters to a .193 clip (45-for-233), which was the second-lowest mark in the Majors trailing only Houston's Collin McHugh (.190)...Established a new Major League record for consecutive batters retired in a single season, retiring 46 consecutive batters over eight appearances (six in relief) from July 22-Aug. 28...his streak was broken up by the Rockies' Jordan Lyles, who doubled to left field with two outs in the 3rd inning...Tossed his second career complete game on Sept. 9 vs. Arizona...he became just the third San Francisco Giants pitcher to toss a 9.0 inning complete game, while throwing less than 90 pitches…his 84 pitches were the fewest ever by a SF Giant in a 9.0 inning complete game...Faced 70-consecutive batters without going to a three-ball count from Sept. 2-20...was just the second pitcher to face 70+ consecutive batters without going to a threeball count this in 2014, joining Chad Qualls who went 71-straight batters from April 29-June 28.
