season.Minnesota will counter with right-h from wangyaya007's blog

SAN FRANCISCO -- Gio Gonzalezs latest quality start wasnt enough for the Washington Nationals. Alvin Kamara Saints Jersey .Gonzalez got his fourth quality start in five games, but Matt Cain threw five hitless innings for his 100th career victory and the San Francisco Giants held Washington to three hits in a 3-1 win Sunday.Gonzalez (6-9) allowed two runs (one earned), six hits and two walks in six innings.Hes throwing strikes, not walking people and getting out of jams when he gets in them, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said.Gio should have fared better than that. His last two starts have been outstanding. We didnt give him much support.The Nationals gave him no support early on.Cain (3-6) struck out five and walked four on 93 pitches. He handed off to George Kontos, who allowed a leadoff single to Bryce Harper in the sixth. Anthony Rendon doubled in Harper two batters later.The Nationals committed two errors, and the winning run scored on Rendons throwing error in the fifth.Theyve been good all year long, Gonzalez said. Its a situation you turn the page and move forward. Just a couple bumps on the road.These guys are the best infield the league, the outfield, too. There are a lot of Gold Gloves out there.Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth inning for his 24th save. Casilla was among five Giants relievers who combined to allow one run on three hits over four innings.NL West-leading San Francisco has won two straight since losing 11 of 13 following the All-Star break.Cain became the sixth Giants pitcher to reach 100 wins since the franchise came to San Francisco in 1958. Juan Marichal (238), Gaylord Perry (134), Tim Lincecum (108), Kirk Rueter (105) and Mike McCormick (104) are the others.That hit me after the game was over, Cain said. I didnt think it was going to be that big of a deal but for it to take three years it feels good, it definitely feels good.Especially with the way it worked out today, we got to use everybody to be a part of it. It was definitely a win that we all needed very much.The Giants won despite troubles hitting with runners in scoring position that have dogged them throughout the second half.They were 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position Sunday and are batting .139 (19 for 137) in that department since the All-Star break.They were hitless in their first 11 at-bats with runners in scoring position Sunday until Angel Pagan singled in Denard Span from third with one out in the bottom of the seventh to give San Francisco a 3-1 lead.Left fielder Mac Williamson left with an injury in the sixth. He dropped Chris Heiseys flyball on the play but fired to third baseman Conor Gillaspie to force out Rendon. Williamson is day-to-day with a jammed shoulder, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.RESPECTING THE GAMEAfter getting hit in the arm by a 94-mph Casilla fastball leading off the ninth, Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman didnt take kindly to the resounding boos he got from Giants fans, implying that he was trying to sell home plate umpire Jim Joyce on the call. Bochy challenged the call, but it was upheld.I was fired up when I got hit. Thats not something I normally do, Zimmerman said. The one thing I never do is fake something like that. I have too much respect for the game.TRAINERS ROOMNationals: 2B Daniel Murphy was out of the lineup for a second straight day. He missed Saturdays game with left leg tightness.UP NEXTNationals: Washington begins a series at the Arizona Diamondbacks with RHP Stephen Strasburg (14-1, 2.68) on the hill. Strasburg was 4-1 with a 2.08 ERA in July, his best month this season. Marcus Williams Jersey . Mitch Holmberg added a goal and three assists. Connor Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (3-0-0). Luke Harrison spoiled Garrett Hughsons shutout bid with a power-play goal at 13:17 of the third period. The Spokane goaltender finished with 28 saves, including a Brandon Fushimi penalty shot in the second period that would have tied the game 1-1. Marcus Williams Saints Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. . The 31-year-old Spain midfielder hasnt played since Madrid lost in the Copa del Rey final to Atletico Madrid in May due to back and foot injuries. MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins might want to consider starting their games closer to midnight.The Twins waited out a rain delay of more than two hours in the top of the inning in a 5-4 win against the Cleveland Indians at Target Field, wrapping up the victory shortly after 12:30 a.m. local time Sunday morning, when rookie outfielder Max Keplers comebacker to the mound with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 11th inning produced an error and allowed the winning run to score.It was adventurous, said Twins manager Paul Molitor. But he finished it off with a big hit to help us get the win.It was the third time in the last month the Twins have started a game on one day, finished it on the next while also playing a day game the following afternoon.So far, the Twins are 5-0 in those games and will look for their sixth win on Sunday.I told the guys before we went back out there, Weve been good in these situations, said Molitor. They came out with some energy and got it done.The loss dropped the American League Central Division-leading Indians to 3-5 against Minnesota this season; the Twins have the worst record in the American League and are 2-19 against every other team in the Central. Meanwhile, the Indians have posted a 24-7 mark against the rest of the division.Every game with these guys is a tug-of-war, said Indians manager Terry Francona. Some teams just play you tough.Cleveland willl send Josh Tomlin to the mound in search of his 10th victory of the season. Alvin Kamara Jersey. The right-hander will look to bounce back from his worst outing of the season his last time out against the Detroit Tigers on July 6.In a game the Indians lost 12-2, Tomlin was tagged for eight runs -- five of them earned -- on seven hits and a walk in just 4 2/3 innings of work.Tomlin has been good in two outings against the Twins this season, earning the victory each time out. He allowed five runs, four earned in 5 1/3 innings pitched at Target Field on April 27, but got enough offensive support in a 6-5 victory.He was better two weeks later, giving up three earned runs over 6 1/3 innings while striking out four.Cleveland has a 13-3 record in his 16 starts this season.Minnesota will counter with right-hander Kyle Gibson, who has been uneven in 10 starts this season. He didnt pick up his first victory until June 28. Despite the inconsistencies, the Twins have won three of his last four starts and were in line for a victory in the other before a late bullpen meltdown against the Texas Rangers his last time out on July 8, when he surrendered four runs in five innings.Gibsons 5.77 career ERA in seven starts against the Indians is his highest against any American League Central opponent. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
