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. Darren McFadden 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
Edgmer Escalona was placed on the DL with inflammation in his right arm. IF
Todd Helton was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. ... RHP Alex White
(2-6, 5-.75) pitches for the Rockies on Sunday. He is 0-2 with a 8.38 ERA in two
previous starts against the Giants. ... Rockies C Ramon Hernandez has eight hits
in his last six starts. ... Rockies OF Dexter Fowler didnt play due to back
spasms. ... Giants IF Pablo Sandoval (left hamstring) was 0 for 2 in his first
rehab start Friday night in San Jose. ... LHP Barry Zito (9-8, 4.19) starts for
the Giants on Sunday. He is 6-2 with an ERA of 2.93 in 18 appearances, 17
starts, against the Rockies. ... Cain is 10-0 when given at least three runs of
support this year. ... The Giants have won twice in 10 home games. Carson Palmer Jersey . “I got lucky,” Johnson
said about his second shot on the 244-yard par 3—his 13th hole Thursday—
after his tee shot went through the green and stopped in a clump of grass. Darrius Heyward-Bey Jersey . The Washington
Capitals were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs on Saturday, making the
two players available for the tournament. Russia sits in first place in Group S,
tied with Sweden at 15 points, and face Italy on Monday to close out the
round-robin portion. http://www.oaklandraidersroom.com/darren-mcfadden-jersey
. Manager Manny Acta said Saturday that Santana would probably wind up there
because of a mild concussion. Sebastian Janikowski Jersey . The skip of
Newfoundland and Labrador has a young team with him at the Canadian mens curling
championship starting Saturday in Saskatoon. Richard Seymour Jersey . The former Calgary
Flames bench boss told The Edmonton Journal on that he has not been asked to
coach the Edmonton Oilers and hasnt even had an interview. LOS ANGELES
Kevin Durant stood above the 3-point line and watched the shot clock dwindle in
the final seconds of Game 4. When Metta World Peace backed up slightly on
defence, Durant hesitated only an instant before launching a 26-footer. “It left
my hand, (and) I was thinking, If this doesnt go in, its going to be a terrible
shot,” Durant said. The three-time scoring champ trusts his instincts and his
silky-smooth jumper. Neither let him down while he and Russell Westbrook
engineered yet another late comeback that pushed a frustrated Kobe Bryant to the
brink. Westbrook scored 10 of his 37 points during a stirring fourth-quarter
rally, Durant added 31 points and hit that tiebreaking 3-pointer with 13.7
seconds left, and the Thunder seized control of their second-round series with a
103-100 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night. Serge Ibaka
scored 14 points and the second-seeded Thunder took a 3-1 series lead with a
rally from a 13-point deficit in the final 8 minutes, moving one win away from
their second straight trip to the Western Conference finals. “Everybody kept
fighting,” Westbrook said. “We all believed in each other. Its the playoffs. You
cant afford to sit back and wonder about it.” Game 5 is Monday night in Oklahoma
City. Oklahoma City improved to 7-1 in the post-season with a tenacious rally on
the second night of back-to-back games against the Lakers and Bryant, who scored
38 points but struggled in the fourth quarter of Los Angeles fifth loss in seven
games. After Durant put the Thunder ahead with his shot-clock-draining
3-pointer, Kobe couldnt match it with 10 seconds left. With a surge that seemed
inevitable to the Lakers worried crowd, Durant and Westbrook led the Thunder
back with teamwork throughout a 32-point fourth quarter. Bryant was left
lamenting the help he didnt get—particularly from four-time All-Star
Pau Gasol, who made the unforced turnover that led to Durants decisive 3. “Pau
has got to be more aggressive,” Bryant said of Gasol, who managed just 10 points
and five rebounds while committing three turnovers. “Hes got to be aggressive,
got to shoot the ball, drive to the basket, and he will next game. ... (The
turnover was) just a bad read on Paus part. It happens.” The Thunder finished
Game 4 on a 22-8 run, punctuated by Durants dramatic 3-pointer and two late free
throws from James Harden, who had 12 points. After sweeping Dallas in the first
round, the Thunder are one win away from sending home the NBAs last two
champions—and in perhaps the greatest measure of the Thunders growth over the
two years since the Lakers ushered them out of the first round on the way to
their second straight title, nobody seems surprised. “We know no game is over,”
Durant said. “Weve witnessed that before. We play hard every possession and live
with the results, and we came out on top.” Andrew Bynum had 18 points and nine
rebounds for the Lakers, who led 92-81 with 7:45 to play before Westbrook went
to work with a furious series of drives to the hoop. The UCLA product scored
nine points in just over 2 minutes, and Kendrick Perkins capped the 17-4 run on
a putback layup with 1:16 left, putting Oklahoma City up 98-96 with its first
lead since the first quarter. After Bryant evened it with two free throws,
Westbrook and Pau Gasol then traded turnovers, with Durant swiping Gasols
careless pass before burying a straightaway 3-pointer that silenced Staples
Center. The Thunder madee 10 of their 15 shots in the final period. Mike Goodson Jersey. “I wish I could sit up
here and say how that happened,” Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said. “It just
happened.” World Peace had 14 points in the second game of the Lakers first
back-to-back playoff games in 13 years. A night after the Lakers got back in the
series with a late comeback for a 99-96 victory in Game 3, Los Angeles led for
most of the night, but couldnt execute on offence late, struggling for even
difficult shots. “We can talk about us offensively, because we had some
struggles,” Lakers coach Mike Brown said. “But it comes down to those guys
scoring 32 points in the fourth quarter, and I thought they did that very
easily. Thats the most disappointing thing.” The game was the third NBA playoff
contest in 27 hours at Staples Center, which will host six playoff games in
hockey and basketball over a four-day stretch this weekend. With the Los Angeles
Kings ice just below the Lakers court, several players appeared to slip and
slide on the floor during the game, and Westbrook nearly did the splits at the
halftime buzzer when his right foot slipped. “I was a little stiff, but we
needed this win,” Westbrook said. Oklahoma City appeared to be unhappy with the
floors condition, but Staples Center did nothing different in its changeover,
and the referees deemed the floor safe for play. The San Antonio Spurs, on
course to meet the Thunder in the conference finals, didnt appear worried about
the floor during their win over the Clippers. Bryant shot poorly in the first
three games of the series, but went 10 for 18 in the first three quarters of
Game 4 before managing only a 2-of-10 effort in the fourth, including a
meaningless bucket at the buzzer. “Were all upset and extremely frustrated,
(but) I dont think anybody is worried about going into Oklahoma City and getting
a win,” Bryant said. “We dont think about winning three in a row.” Jordan Hills
offensive rebound and layup put the Lakers up 91-78 with 8 minutes left, but
longtime Lakers guard Derek Fisher kick-started Oklahoma Citys comeback with a
3-pointer. After Oklahoma City defended its home court with a blowout win in the
opener and a comeback from a seven-point deficit in the final 2 minutes of Game
2, the Lakers finally answered Friday night with their own late rally. Los
Angeles took control of Game 4 early on while the Thunder struggled with their
shots and their footing. Westbrook slipped near midcourt at the halftime buzzer,
his right foot sliding forward when he attempted to stop. He stayed down on the
court for an uncomfortably long moment before walking gingerly to the locker
room with his hand on his left hip, but got treatment at halftime and returned
for the third quarter. The game was Chapter 4 in the four-day extravaganza at
Staples Center. The Kings play Game 4 of the Western Conference finals against
Phoenix on Sunday afternoon, followed by the Clippers fourth game against San
Antonio—all while tens of thousands of fans gather outside to watch the Tour
of California, the nations largest cycling race, which finishes on the street
outside shortly before the Kings opening faceoff. NOTES: The Lakers hadnt played
back-to-back post-season games since the second round in 1999, another season
shortened by labour strife. ... Westbrook and Perkins were called for technical
fouls for angry reactions to contact with the Lakers point guards. ... Denzel
Washington, Allyson Felix and Michelle Kwan attended the game. ’ ’ ’
