SAN FRANCISCO —Buster Posey and the San Francisco Giants offence broke out at
home, and Matt Cain settled in and pitched like the ace of the staff. Ryan Mathews Womens Jersey . It all added up
to a one-sided win over the Colorado Rockies. Posey hit a two-run homer, and
Cain tossed seven solid innings in the Giants 9-3 victory against the Rockies on
Saturday. “We know what our offence is capable of doing,” Posey said. “We were
coming off a good road trip, and it was nice to see us do the same at home.”
Cain (11-5) gave up two runs and seven hits in 7 1-3 innings, and added an RBI
single to win for the first time since July 15. He walked one and struck out
six. Angel Pagan hit a two-run triple, and Marco Scutaro, Hunter Pence and
Joaquin Arias also drove in runs for the Giants. “I felt like I was able to make
better quality pitches this start,” Cain said. “My direction was better and I
was able to pitch to the outer parts of the plate.” D.J. LeMahieu hit his first
major league home run for the Rockies, who had won three of four. “The wind was
blowing out a little bit and that kind of helped it,” LeMahieu said. “But to hit
it off Matt Cain and here in San Francisco, it was pretty special.”
Drew Pomeranz (1-7) gave up four runs and five hits over four innings to fall to
0-4 in his past six starts. He struck out three and didnt walk a batter. “We had
to come from too far back against a very good pitching staff,” Rockies manager
Jim Tracy said. “You cant beat this team that way. You simply cant do it.”
Poseys 19th home run of the season, a two-run shot in the third that landed in
the first row of the left field bleachers, gave the Giants a 4-0 lead. It was
Poseys ninth homer since the All-Star Break, tying him with San Diegos
Chase Headley for the second most in the National League. “Im comfortable
hitting here and see the ball well,” Posey said. “The park is big but all the
gaps are big, too.” Cain carried a shutout into the sixth inning, when the
Rockies loaded the bases with no outs. He pitched his way out of it, allowing
one run on Rutledges infield groundout. LeMahieu hit Cains first pitch of the
eighth inning, and Eric Young and Rutledge singled one out later to end Cains
day. Pagan and Arias tripled, giving the Giants 38 on the season, two shy of the
Rockies major league leading total. There have been 27 triples hit in AT&T
Park. Notes: Rockies RHP Will Harris was recalled from Colorado Springs. RHP

performance at the Canadian mens curling championship in Saskatoon is still

in a recent interview.MANKATO, Minn. —Greg Childs came to the Minnesota
Vikings with draft-bargain promise, bringing a prototypical wide receivers body
with the speed to be a deep-route threat despite dropping to the end of the
fourth round because of an injury-affected senior year at Arkansas. That
potential might be forever unfulfilled. Childs fledgling NFL career took a
devastating hit when he tried to jump to catch a pass in an intra-squad
scrimmage on Saturday night and ruptured his patellar tendon—in both knees.
Childs went for surgery on Monday. Theres no timetable for his return. “Hes got
a tough road ahead of him, no question about it,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier
said. “I mean, youre talking about both knees.” The patellar tendon runs down
from the kneecap to the shin bone. “We are all hoping for the best,” Frazier
said. Vikings athletic trainer Eric Sugarman could only recall former Chicago
wide receiver Wendell Davis as a player who previously suffered these freak
simultaneous patellar tendon tears, in 1993 on that infamously unforgiving
artificial turf at Philadelphias Veterans Stadium. Frazier spoke optimistically
about medical advances that should give Childs a better chance to recover two
decades later, but Davis never played again after his comeback attempt failed.
Childs was distraught, according to Frazier, but also determined to resume his
career. “He is going to work extremely hard and get back to playing again. That
was his attitude, and those were the words he shared with me: Coach, Ill be
back. Im going to do it just like I did before. Im going to work as hard as I
can. Ill be back out here to help the Vikings,” Frazier said. “That is a great
attitude under the circumstances.” Another factor working against Childs is that
he tore the patellar tendon in his right knee less than two years ago, an injury
that essentially allowed the Vikings (No. 29 in the AP Pro32) to get him where
they did in the draft. Childs was fast becoming one of the best college
receivers in the country until he was hurt a little more than halfway through
his junior season in 2010. He wasnt the same as a senior last year, limping
noticeably during Arkansas first preseason practice and struggling to hang onto
the ball. Childs finished with only 16 catches and 192 yards in 2011 while
Jarius Wright, his friend since childhood who was also drafted thiss year by the
Vikings, became the go-to Razorbacks receiver. Eric Weddle Womens Jersey. Wright declined to
comment on Monday. Childs, on Twitter, thanked his followers, fans, friends and
family for praying for him and said, “I will be fine.” The Vikings placed Childs
on injury waivers, a procedural move that must come before they can put him on
injured reserve. With Jerome Simpson suspended for the first three games of the
regular season, the Vikings have again found themselves thin at this important
position. They still have standout Percy Harvin, of course, and veteran
Michael Jenkins is around, but hes more in the possession-receiver mould. Wright
is more of a Harvin-style player in the slot. Devin Aromashodu is the most
obvious option on the roster to fill in for Simpson while hes out, but Childs
wouldve been a welcomed bonus for this offence had he been healthy.
Stephen Burton, a seventh-round draft pick last year, has become a stronger
candidate to make the team. “We still think we have some options on our current
roster without having to just bring a guy in for the sake of bringing a guy in,”
Frazier said. NOTES: Geoff Schwartz, who was competing with Brandon Fusco for
the starting right guard spot, will have surgery on Tuesday in Philadelphia to
repair a sports hernia. Frazier said Schwartz could be back in a month but also
acknowledged his recovery could take as long as eight or 10 weeks. ... Frazier
said running back Adrian Peterson, who attended a court hearing in Houston on
Monday, will stay on the physically unable to perform list for the rest of the
