Nov. 3 12:51 PM PT1:51 PM MT2:51 PM CT3:51 PM ET15:51 ET19:51 GMT3:51 12:51 PM MST2:51 PM EST3:21 PM VEN23:51 UAE1:51 PM CT-Moore's $7 million contract option for 2017 has been exercised by the Giants.
Analysis: The Giants acquired the left-hander at the trade deadline from Tampa Bay and he helped them make the playoffs. Moore went 6-5 with a 4.08 ERA in 12 starts after joining San Francisco, winning four of his final five outings and going 4-2 in September. He pitched eight strong innings against the Cubs in Game 4 of the NLDS before the bullpen surrendered four runs in the ninth of a 6-5 loss.
Oct. 12 9:07 PM PT10:07 PM MT11:07 PM CT12:07 AM ET0:07 ET4:07 GMT12:07 9:07 PM MST11:07 PM EST11:37 PM VEN8:07 UAE11:07 PM CT-Moore pitched the game of his career Tuesday, but his bullpen faltered as the Giants were eliminated in Game 4 of the NLDS. He allowed two runs - one earned - and two hits over eight innings with 10 strikeouts while throwing 120 pitches.
Analysis: Moore, who also had an RBI single, finished his season by yielding just three earned runs over 23 2/3 innings while fanning 27 in three starts.
Oct. 1 6:41 PM PT7:41 PM MT8:41 PM CT9:41 PM ET21:41 ET1:41 GMT9:41 6:41 PM MST8:41 PM EST9:11 PM VEN5:41 UAE (+1)8:41 PM CT-Moore delivered in a must-win game for the Giants, limiting the Dodgers to a run and three hits over eight outstanding innings in a 7-1 win that put San Francisco in the NL wild-card game.
Analysis: After going 6-2 over his final eight starts and allowing two runs or less in six of those outings, Moore could be the Giants' No. 3 starter behind co-aces Madison Bumgarner and Johnny Cueto should the team defeat the Mets on Wednesday and advance to the NLDS.
Sep. 28 8:56 AM PT9:56 AM MT10:56 AM CT11:56 AM ET11:56 ET15:56 GMT23:56 8:56 AM MST10:56 AM EST11:26 AM VEN19:56 UAE10:56 AM CT-Moore (12-12) matched his career high with 11 strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings, rebounding from his worst start this season in Tuesday's 12-3 win over the Rockies.
Analysis: Moore was knocked out after only an inning - the second-shortest start of the lefty's career - in a 9-3 loss at the Dodgers last Wednesday, allowing six runs on seven hits. He gave up six hits and one run Tuesday and didn't walk a batter.
Sep. 22 9:33 AM PT10:33 AM MT11:33 AM CT12:33 PM ET12:33 ET16:33 GMT0:33 9:33 AM MST11:33 AM EST12:03 PM VEN20:33 UAE11:33 AM CT-Moore gave up six runs and seven hits in one ugly inning in a 9-3 loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Analysis: Moore was one out away from throwing his first career no-hitter on Aug. 25 in Los Angeles when Corey Seager broke it up with a single. He previously held the Dodgers to just one unearned run in 15 1/3 innings. ''It was a bad day to have a bad day,'' he said. ''There was a lot of small stuff going on.''
Sep. 11 7:09 PM PT8:09 PM MT9:09 PM CT10:09 PM ET22:09 ET2:09 GMT10:09 7:09 PM MST9:09 PM EST9:39 PM VEN6:09 UAE (+1)9:09 PM CT-Moore struck out 11 in seven innings in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks.
Analysis: Moore rebounded nicely after being tagged for six runs in 5 2/3 innings at Colorado in his previous start. Excluding that dud, Moore is 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA with 25 strikeouts over 21 innings in his other three starts since Aug. 25. He'll make his first career start against the Cardinals on Friday.
Sep. 5 6:58 PM PT7:58 PM MT8:58 PM CT9:58 PM ET21:58 ET1:58 GMT9:58 6:58 PM MST8:58 PM EST9:28 PM VEN5:58 UAE (+1)8:58 PM CT-Moore had a forgettable outing Monday in Colorado, where the lefty was tagged for five runs on five hits - including two homers - and walked four before being removed after a season-low 2 2/3 innings.
Analysis: Moore had turned in two straight strong starts prior to Monday's debacle, including a 4-0 victory over the Dodgers on Aug. 25 in which he lost a no-hitter with two outs in the ninth inning. He'll attempt to bounce back Sunday on the road against an Arizona team he held to a run over 5 1/3 innings last Wednesday.
Aug. 31 4:43 PM PT5:43 PM MT6:43 PM CT7:43 PM ET19:43 ET23:43 GMT7:43 4:43 PM MST6:43 PM EST7:13 PM VEN3:43 UAE (+1)6:43 PM CT-Moore allowed a run and five hits while striking out seven over 5 1/3 innings in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Arizona for his first career victory at AT&T Park.
Analysis: Moore walked off in the sixth to a standing ovation from the sellout crowd. The left-hander had lost his initial two home starts since being acquired from Tampa Bay. Moore was pitching in his first game since losing a no-hit bid with two outs in the ninth inning at Dodger Stadium. Moore will take the mound at Coors Field on Monday, his first start against the Rockies since 2013.
Aug. 25 12:07 PM PT1:07 PM MT2:07 PM CT3:07 PM ET15:07 ET19:07 GMT3:07 12:07 PM MST2:07 PM EST2:37 PM VEN23:07 UAE2:07 PM CT-Moore lost his no-hit bid with two outs in the ninth inning on a soft, clean single by Corey Seager, and the Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0 Thursday night. Moore earned his first win for the Giants since they got him in a trade with Tampa Bay on Aug. 1.
Analysis: Moore's try ended on his 133rd and final pitch - he missed most of the last two seasons after Tommy John surgery. He was immediately pulled after Seager's hit plopped onto the grass in shallow right field. Moore nearly gave San Francisco a major league record five straight years with a no-hitter. And he almost became the first Giants pitcher to no-hit the archrival Dodgers since 1915, when New York's Rube Marquard stopped Brooklyn.
Aug. 21 1:04 PM PT2:04 PM MT3:04 PM CT4:04 PM ET16:04 ET20:04 GMT4:04 1:04 PM MST3:04 PM EST3:34 PM VEN0:04 UAE (+1)3:04 PM CT-Moore remained winless as a Giant after allowing three runs in five innings Saturday against the Mets, taking the loss in a third straight start.
Analysis: Moore had two solid outings to begin his San Francisco tenure but has been tagged for eight runs in 11 innings over his past two. He owns a 4.70 ERA since being acquired from Tampa Bay and issued a troubling 17 walks in 23 innings.
Aug. 16 11:12 AM PT12:12 PM MT1:12 PM CT2:12 PM ET14:12 ET18:12 GMT2:12 11:12 AM MST1:12 PM EST1:42 PM VEN22:12 UAE1:12 PM CT-Moore endured his worst performance in nearly two months Monday, when he allowed five runs, six hits and three walks in six innings against Pittsburgh.
Analysis: The right-hander had posted a 2.22 ERA in his previous eight outings. ''I'm capable of better things than what happened tonight,'' Moore said Monday after falling to 0-2 in three starts since being acquired from Tampa Bay.
Aug. 9 7:29 PM PT8:29 PM MT9:29 PM CT10:29 PM ET22:29 ET2:29 GMT10:29 7:29 PM MST9:29 PM EST9:59 PM VEN6:29 UAE (+1)9:29 PM CT-Moore allowed two runs and three hits in six innings, striking out seven but walking five in the Giants' 2-0 loss to the Marlins on Tuesday.
Analysis: That's an almost identical line to his first start with the Giants, when he posted the exact same numbers with one more walk.
Aug. 5 9:31 PM PT10:31 PM MT11:31 PM CT12:31 AM ET0:31 ET4:31 GMT12:31 9:31 PM MST11:31 PM EST12:01 AM VEN8:31 UAE11:31 PM CT-On Thursday, Moore allowed two runs and three hits in six innings and walked six - matching his major league high - in his first start after being acquired by the Giants from Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Though Moore fanned seven, walks continue to hamper his cause with 10 in his last two contests.
Aug. 2 4:26 PM PT5:26 PM MT6:26 PM CT7:26 PM ET19:26 ET23:26 GMT7:26 4:26 PM MST6:26 PM EST6:56 PM VEN3:26 UAE (+1)6:26 PM CT-Moore will make his first start with the Giants on Thursday against the Phillies.
Analysis: Moore, acquired Monday after going 7-7 with a 4.08 ERA in 21 starts for the Rays this season, has made one start against the Phillies. The left-hander allowed four runs in 4 2/3 innings of a 5-3 loss in Philadelphia in July 2015.
Aug. 1 1:50 PM PT2:50 PM MT3:50 PM CT4:50 PM ET16:50 ET20:50 GMT4:50 1:50 PM MST3:50 PM EST4:20 PM VEN0:50 UAE (+1)3:50 PM CT-A person with knowledge of the trade says the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants have acquired Moore from the Rays for third baseman Matt Duffy.
Analysis: The 27-year-old Moore is 7-7 with a 4.08 ERA in 21 starts and 130 innings. The Giants now have a reliable addition for the rotation to join Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija, given the struggles of Matt Cain and Jake Peavy.
July 27 6:28 PM PT7:28 PM MT8:28 PM CT9:28 PM ET21:28 ET1:28 GMT9:28 6:28 PM MST8:28 PM EST8:58 PM VEN5:28 UAE (+1)8:28 PM CT-Moore pitched four-hit ball into the seventh inning, allowing one unearned run, in the Rays' 3-1 win over the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Analysis: Moore performed admirably against the Dodgers, who are thought to be interested in several Tampa Bay starters with the trade deadline looming. He looked ready for a pennant race, striking out five and only allowing an unearned run. ''I'm here (with the Rays), and it doesn't feel like I'm going anywhere,'' said Moore, who also walked four.
July 22 12:23 PM PT1:23 PM MT2:23 PM CT3:23 PM ET15:23 ET19:23 GMT3:23 12:23 PM MST2:23 PM EST2:53 PM VEN23:23 UAE2:23 PM CT-Moore was sharp again in Thursday's win at Oakland, where he yielded three runs and four hits while striking out six over seven innings.
Analysis: All three runs came on Jake Smolinski's homer in the second inning. Considered a potential candidate to be moved at the trade deadline, Moore is increasing his value by going 3-2 with a 2.38 ERA over a stretch of five consecutive quality starts.
July 16 6:24 PM PT7:24 PM MT8:24 PM CT9:24 PM ET21:24 ET1:24 GMT9:24 6:24 PM MST8:24 PM EST8:54 PM VEN5:24 UAE (+1)8:24 PM CT-Moore allowed two runs in a season-high 7 1/3 innings of Saturday's 2-1 loss to Baltimore.
Analysis: Though his team is struggling, Moore has a 2.00 ERA while splitting his last four starts.
July 9 6:16 PM PT7:16 PM MT8:16 PM CT9:16 PM ET21:16 ET1:16 GMT9:16 6:16 PM MST8:16 PM EST8:46 PM VEN5:16 UAE (+1)8:16 PM CT-Moore had a two-start win streak snapped after allowing four runs - two earned - over six innings in Saturday's loss at Boston.
Analysis: Moore has had his ups and downs in his first full season back from Tommy John surgery, but he's shown signs of progress by going 3-2 with a 2.52 ERA over his last six starts.
July 4 4:27 PM PT5:27 PM MT6:27 PM CT7:27 PM ET19:27 ET23:27 GMT7:27 4:27 PM MST6:27 PM EST6:57 PM VEN3:27 UAE (+1)6:27 PM CT-Moore had his second straight solid start Monday, allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings to beat the Angels.
Analysis: The left-hander has won back-to-back outings behind a 1.32 ERA. Both came at home, where he's 4-0 with a 1.89 ERA in his last five starts.
June 30 9:09 PM PT10:09 PM MT11:09 PM CT12:09 AM ET0:09 ET4:09 GMT12:09 9:09 PM MST11:09 PM EST11:39 PM VEN8:09 UAE11:09 PM CT-Moore (4-5) allowed three singles, walked two and struck out five in seven innings to outperform David Price on Wednesday in a 4-0 home win over the Red Sox.
Analysis: Moore is 2-0 with an 0.90 ERA in his last three starts at Tropicana Field.
June 24 7:40 PM PT8:40 PM MT9:40 PM CT10:40 PM ET22:40 ET2:40 GMT10:40 7:40 PM MST9:40 PM EST10:10 PM VEN6:40 UAE (+1)9:40 PM CT-The Orioles got their first baserunner against Matt Moore (3-5) in the bottomg of the fifth inning Friday when they scored a run, then scored four times in the sixth.
Analysis: Moore is 0-2 with a 7.23 ERA in his last four road starts.
June 13 8:24 AM PT9:24 AM MT10:24 AM CT11:24 AM ET11:24 ET15:24 GMT23:24 8:24 AM MST10:24 AM EST10:54 AM VEN19:24 UAE10:24 AM CT-Moore pitched two-hit ball over seven innings - striking out 10 with one walk - to lead the Rays to their seventh win in nine games, 5-0 over the Astros on Sunday.
Analysis: Moore had a 7.17 ERA over his previous seven starts, so perhaps this will get the one-time top prospect headed back in the right direction.
June 8 9:32 PM PT10:32 PM MT11:32 PM CT12:32 AM ET0:32 ET4:32 GMT12:32 9:32 PM MST11:32 PM EST12:02 AM VEN8:32 UAE11:32 PM CT-On Tuesday in a loss to Arizona, Moore (2-4) went seven innings, allowing five runs on seven hits with a walk and three strikeouts.

Analysis: The left-hander struck out seven while allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings to pick up his first win since April 17. Moore hadn't pitched more than five innings over his previous four starts and posted an ugly 8.53 ERA over that stretch.
