SAN FRANCISCO -- As awful as the San Francisco Giants have played for most of the last month, they are back in an enviable position: first place in the NL West. Beating their Bay Area rivals to get back there was a nice bonus, too. Hunter Pence homered and drove in two runs, Matt Cain tossed six strong innings and the Giants spoiled Jason Hammels debut for Oakland with a 5-2 victory over the Athletics on Wednesday night. San Francisco, which had lost 20 of 27, moved percentage points ahead of the Dodgers in the division. "If you look at how things have gone, you find that amazing," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "Its all from the good work that happened earlier. Weve got to get back on track." For one night, they did. Cain (2-7) allowed two runs and five hits for his first win since May 15 against Miami. He struck out four and walked two to help the Giants snap major league-leading Oaklands six-game winning streak. "Felt really good," Cain said. "Guys came up with some big, clutch hits when we needed them. Guys kept putting pressure on those guys, which is always nice." Santiago Casilla got three quick outs for his fourth save. Hammel, acquired by the As along with fellow right-hander Jeff Samardzija from the Chicago Cubs last week for three top prospects, had anything but a clean opener with Oakland. He pitched with runners on base for most of the night, and his left thumb on his glove hand cramped up and looked disjointed at one point. He left after giving up six hits and three runs -- two earned -- in five innings, striking out three and walking three. Hammel said his thumb was fine afterward and he was bothered more by his performance. "Tonight was a grind and they grinded me pretty good," he said. Stephen Vogt homered and Jed Lowrie had an RBI single for Oakland. The As shut down the Giants 5-0 and 6-1 in the first two games of the Bay Bridge Series in Oakland and looked every bit like a team with the best record in baseball while doing it. Back in the comforts of glitzy AT&T Park, though, the Giants offence finally showed signs of life. San Francisco finished with 10 hits and took advantage of most of its scoring opportunities. With one out in the second inning, Yoenis Cespedes bobbled Joe Paniks single in left field for an error. By the time the strong-armed Cespedes corralled the ball and threw home, Gregor Blanco had crossed the plate. Buster Poseys RBI single gave the Giants a 2-0 lead in the third. Vogt homered leading off the fourth, sending a slider from Cain over the stands in right and onto the walkway outside the ballpark for his third long ball this season. Pence came back with his own long ball in the fourth to put the Giants up 3-1. It was Pences 12th home run and first since June 21 at Arizona. "It was a pretty clean game," Posey said. While the Giants finally got the bats going, Cain kept finding ways to minimize the As rallies. The right-hander got Coco Crisp to ground out with two runners on in the fifth, which came after he misfired to second base on a potential double-play ball earlier in the inning. And after Lowries two-out single sliced San Franciscos lead to 3-2 in the sixth, Cain got Derek Norris to ground out, stranding two runners. Oakland got a brief scare in the fifth when Hammels left thumb somehow bent awkwardly in the middle of Blancos at-bat. An As trainer worked on the thumb for several minutes, then the pitcher got Blanco to ground out. Pence hit an RBI single in the sixth before lefty Eric OFlahertys wild pitch helped the Giants score another run to go ahead 5-2. Oaklands offence was kept quiet the rest of the way. Jeremy Affeldt, Sergio Romo and Casilla each pitched one perfect inning of relief. NOTES: The Giants optioned OF Juan Perez to Triple-A Fresno after the game.

I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end. I did not actually see any of the shots in the game until I got home and watched the video. Warren Moon Womens Jersey .Manager Brendan Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo on Friday that Sturridge pulled his calf muscle in training as he prepared to return from a five-week layoff due to a thigh strain.RALEIGH, N.C. -- George Washington kept hanging around, refusing to let Memphis pull too far ahead. The Colonials just couldnt come up with the one shot they needed to prolong their first NCAA tournament visit in seven years. Isaiah Armwood scored a season-high 21 points in ninth-seeded GWs 71-66 loss to eighth-seeded Memphis in the second round of the East Regional. Armwood picked up his fourth foul with 12:02 remaining for GW (24-9), which was just 2 of 12 from 3-point range yet never fell behind by more than 10 points. "It definitely changed my defence, because when Im on defence, Im usually active. I couldnt foul," Armwood said. "It definitely hurt us because I gave up some layups that I dont usually give up." Leading scorer Maurice Creek -- who averages 14 points -- finished with nine on 2-of-13 shooting for GW, but he airballed a 3-pointer in the final seconds that would have tied it. Michael Dixon Jr., the top sixth man in the American Athletic Conference, scored 19 points and hit four free throws in the final 10 seconds for Memphis, which never trailed. Joe Jackson added 15 points for the eighth-seeded Tigers (24-9), who are halfway to Geron Johnsons post-AAC tournament guarantee of two wins in the first weekend of the NCAAs. "As long as we think big and we play hard, the skys the limit," Jackson said. "Weve just got to continue to think that we can get there. Weve got to know we can get there." They entered the tournament having lost three of five to fall out of the national rankings, and shot 49 per cent in this one but struggled to put GW away until the final seconds. Patricio Garino added 10 points for the Colonials, who were making their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2007 and hung around all game before making a final late push. They had the ball down 67-64 after Jackson threw the ball away with 1:16 left. But Creeks jumper in the lane was short and so was Nemanja Mikics 3-point attempt from the right wing with lesss than a minute remaining.dddddddddddd "I think if we would have tied it, the momentum was sort of shifting and maybe we would have tied it, had some time outs and things wouldve been different," GW coach Mike Lonergan said. Crawford missed a 3 for Memphis with about 30 seconds left and the rebound went out of bounds off Jackson with 26.6 seconds left. Joe McDonald beat Crawford off the dribble for a layup to make it 67-66 with 13.6 seconds left, and the Colonials fouled Dixon with 9.6 seconds left. Dixon hit both free throws and the Colonials called a timeout to set up their final possession. McDonald dribbled a few seconds off the clock before passing to Creek, whose final 3-pointer with about 3 seconds left left failed to draw iron. "A shot I usually hit," said Creek, a 41 per cent shooter from 3-point range. Dixon added two more free throws with 0.4 of a second remaining for Memphis, which could never push its lead past 10. Its last big lead came on Dixons jumper from the corner with 9 1/2 minutes left. Creek hit a 3-pointer -- GWs second, and last, of the game -- before GWs 1-3-1 zone forced a turnover and Garino made a layup to make it a 64-62 game with 2 1/2 minutes left. Out of a timeout, Memphis worked the ball to Dixon -- who buried an open 3-pointer from the right wing and kept his shooting hand aloft for an extra moment. At the time, that seemed like the dagger -- but the Colonials kept scrapping. "They made a run at the end," Dixon said, "but we never got flustered or rattled." Both teams werent especially good behind either line on the court: Memphis was 11 of 16 from the free throw line and hit just 27 per cent of its 3-point attempts, while GW was 14 of 24 from the free throw line in addition to its poor 3-point shooting. "Theyve got a good inside-out punch," Jackson said. "Fortunately, we kind of stopped them from shooting 3s because it probably would have been a long night for us." ' ' '
