SAN FRANCISCO —Pablo Sandoval sprinted around the bases in those bright orange
cleats the same way he did in the All-Star game and added a mesmerizing
home-plate collision for an encore. Philip Rivers Womens Jersey . What a Giant
return. Madison Bumgarner pitched seven innings of two-hit ball, Buster Posey
homered and the Giants beat the Houston Astros 5-1 on Friday night in a game
that will be remembered more for the final run than the dominance San Francisco
showed in its first outing since the break. Sandoval followed up the first
bases-loaded triple in All-Star history with a triple in the eighth. The portly
player nicknamed Kung Fu Panda—and listed at a generous 240 pounds—tagged
up on Angel Pagans short fly to left and barrelled into catcher Chris Snyder to
jar the ball loose and score. “Thats a lot of mass coming to home plate,” Giants
manager Bruce Bochy said. The home-plate collision, which has been a hot topic
in San Francisco since Poseys season ended a year ago in a play at the plate
with the Marlins Scott Cousins, still had players buzzing in the clubhouse after
the game and could provide the kind of energy San Francisco needs heading into
the seasons second half. If nothing else, the All-Star break seemed to
rejuvenate the Giants. Bumgarner (11-5) retired 13 straight until Snyders solo
shot in the seventh inning in another dominating start for the blossoming lefty.
He struck out five and walked two, giving praise to fellow Giants lefty
Jeremy Affeldt for helping him with a new twist on his curveball that he applied
for the first time. Posey hit his team-leading 11th home run of the season in
the first off Wandy Rodriguez, who allowed seven hits and two walks in seven
innings. Rodriguez (7-7) also had four strikeouts to begin a 10-game road trip
for the last-place Astros. Santiago Casilla struck out the only two batters he
faced for his 22nd save in 26 chances. After losing five of six to end the
seasons first half, San Francisco started four players—Posey, Matt Cain,
Pablo Sandoval and MVP Melky Cabrera—in the Mid-Summer Classic, where they
helped the National League roll past the AL 8-0 and brought the momentum back to
the Bay Area. Sandoval credited his cleats for the near repeat performance—
even though he expects a $1,000 fine for his shoes not completely matching the
uniform, which were orange shirts and white pants on the usual “Orange Friday.”
As for the play, both players called it clean. “Its tough,” said Sandoval, a
former catcher converted to third base. “He was in great position and I was in
great position, so nobody got hurt. I see the ball coming, and I put my head
down and you have to go.” Said Snyder: “Ive got no problem with that. I came out
fine. I just didnt hold onto the ball.” Even before the collision, the Giants
looked more like a team ready to erase the Dodgers half-game lead in the NL West
than the one that stumbled before the break. Posey showed some immediate pop
when he drove a ball over the wall in centre field and off the roof of a
concession stand near the black backdrop in centre field to give the Giants a
2-0 lead in the first. A ballpark scoreboard estimated the shot at 448 feet,
landing in a place—and with the kind of acceleration—rarely seen at
AT&T Park since home run king Barry Bonds retired. Pagan, Brandon Belt and
Joaquin Arias each singled to open the second to put San Francisco ahead 4-0.
Before Bumgarner even returned to the mound, he had all the supported he needed.
“Was kind of nervous,” Bumgarner said. “Didnt know how to feel with the time
off.” The left-hander brought his season total to 104 strikeouts—reaching the
century mark by getting Brian Bixler swinging for the second out in the first—
and never faced any serious opposition from a depleted Astros lineup. Bumgarner,
who pitched a one-hitter for his first complete game two starts ago against
Cincinnati, gave up a single to Jed Lowrie leading off the second. He later
walked Matt Downs with two outs before getting Rodriguez out on a soft liner to
short. Bumgarner plowed through the Astros lineup for the next four innings
until Snyder pulled his fourth home run of the season over the left field wall,
clearing the on-site ambulance and skipping down the ballparks tunnel. NOTES:
Houston reliever Wilton Lopez returned to the active roster after missing 26
games with a sprained right elbow. Astros manager Brad Mills said he wants to
limit Lopez to about 25 pitches whenever he pitches again. ... Nate Schierholtz
hit his first career pinch-hit triple leading off San Franciscos seventh. ...
Closer Brian Wilson handed out 1,000 baseball gloves from the Giants Community
Funds Junior Giants baseball program and held a question-and-answer session
before the game. ... Giants RHP Tim Lincecum (3-10, 6.42 ERA) faces Houston RHP
Lucas Harell (7-6, 4.56 ERA) on Saturday. Eric Weddle Jersey . Hughes finished in the
peloton, 55 seconds back of Germanys Claudia Hausler and American Evelyn
Stevens. That final-stage breakaway gave Stevens the Tour win and firmly
cemented her claim to a berth on the U. Philip Rivers Youth Jersey . Cilic, the 2010
finalist, dropped just five points from his own serve as the 23-year-old Croat
defeated Haas 6-3, 6-4 in 1 hour, 15 minutes. The 34-year-old Haas was once
ranked as high as No. http://www.sandiegochargersjerseyonsale.com/philip-rivers-jerseys
. Andrew Jacobson, Scott Sealy, Ruben Luna also scored for Dallas (5-10-7),
which played without top offensive player Brek Shea—left off the roster for
disciplinary reasons. Eric Weddle Womens Jersey . ”We started to
get sloppy,” said Drew Doughty of the 4-0 victory. “And he made sure to give it
to us and tell us we cant be playing like this because you cant take your foot
off the gas. Antonio Gates Jersey . Torres is expected to
be included in coach Vicente del Bosques 23-man squad on May 27, but Villas
chances are slim because the Barcelona striker hasnt played since December. Del
Bosque told The Associated Press he would be hard-pressed to take Villa to
Poland and Ukraine unless he got an official game in. BARCELONA, Spain—Pastor
Maldonado held off Fernando Alonso to win the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday and
give Williams its first Formula One victory in eight years. Maldonado, starting
from pole position, held his nerve as he withstood the challenge of Ferraris
Spanish driver to take the 66-lap race at the Catalunya Circuit by 3.1 seconds
and give F1 its fifth different race winner of a so far unpredictable season.
Maldonado become the sports first Venezuelan winner, while Williams 114th
triumph was its first since the 2004 Brazilian GP. “Its a wonderful day for me
and the team. An unforgettable race,” said Maldonado, who was hoisted onto the
shoulders of Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen before being doused in champagne on his
first visit to the podium. “It was a tough race, with the strategy and a couple
of laps we were struggling. But the car was so competitive from the first lap.”
Maldonados victory provided icing on the cake for Frank Williams as the team
celebrated its longtime team principals 70th birthday this weekend. Williams
celebration speech, however, was cut short after a fire broke out in the teams
garage after the race. No injuries were reported. Raikkonen made up nearly 20
seconds over the final stretch to finish 3.8 seconds behind Maldonado in third,
ahead of Lotus teammate Romain Grosjean. Kamui Kobayashi of Sauber was fifth,
ahead of two-time defending F1 champion Sebastian Vettel, who charged past Nico
Rosbergs Mercedes to take sixth and maintain a share of the overall F1 points
lead. The Red Bull driver, who was given a drive-through penalty during the
race, shares 61 points at the top of the driver standings with Alonso through
five races. It is F1s most varied start since 1983, when five different drivers
also opened the season with victories. Hamilton is third with 53 points, while
Raikkonen has 49, one better than Red Bull driver Mark Webber, who finished
11th. The top seven drivers are separated by less than the 25 points awarded to
the winner of each race, and Grosjean trails the top two by 26 points. “These
tires are contributing to an extraordinary season,” McLaren team principal
Martin Whitmarsh said. “Anyone who makes predictions in the sport right now
would be nuts.” Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg was seventh and Lewis Hammilton,
demoted from pole to last place in the 24-car field because of a rule breach,
finished eighth for McLaren.dddddddddddd Hamilton finished ahead of teammate
Jenson Button with Force India driver Nico Hulkenberg taking the last two points
in 10th. Alonso provided home fans with a steely start as the two-time champion
kept his inside line, under pressure from Maldonado. The Spaniard led around the
first corner with Raikkonen moving ahead of Grosjean to sit third. Hamilton, who
set the fastest lap in Saturdays qualifying but failed to retain enough fuel in
his tank to get back into the pits, overcame a poor first stop when his crew
failed to clear a tire quickly to stay in the points. He moved as high as fifth
after the second round of stops, when Maldonado took over the lead from Alonso,
with Raikkonen still ahead of Grosjean. “It was the best I could do,” said
Hamilton, who felt he had a point to prove. “I was one of the only ones to do a
two-stop strategy and people always commenting how aggressive my driving style
is, so I hope today I could prove them wrong.” Maldonado lost time on his third
stop but managed to eventually get past Raikkonen to open up a gap on Alonso,
who passed the Finn one lap later to stay on Maldonados back. “It was a
fantastic start. We took the momentum there and led the race for the first start
but Williams anticipated (our pit) stop and got in front,” said Alonso, who
finished runner-up for the fourth time. “We tried a couple of times to get in
front but it wasnt possible.” The 27-year-old Maldonado drove with confidence
down the final stretch despite Alonso, whose lone victory here was in 2006,
bearing down on him. “There was some moments where he was so close but I managed
the gap,” Maldonado said. Michael Schumacher bowed out after running into the
back of Bruno Sennas Williams on lap 14, the German drivers terrible season
getting worse as he failed to finish for the third time while also knocking his
Brazilian rival out of the race. Hamilton stayed third in the driver standings
ahead of Raikkonen going into the Monaco GP on May 27. “Its a great opportunity
for us to be strong again,” Maldonado said. “Consistency will be the most
important thing this championship.” ’ ’ ’
