SAN FRANCISCO - Buster Posey and the Giants already know how to win in October — even without all this help from the St. Louis Cardinals.Strange as it might look sometimes, San Francisco finds a way to score just enough.Posey drove in three runs and capped another unusual rally as the Giants took advantage of some clunky defence by first baseman Matt Adams in beating the Cardinals 6-4 on Wednesday night to move within one victory of the World Series.We might find some weird ways to score runs, but were getting people on base first. Thats the main thing, Brandon Belt said.Chasing their third title in five years, the Giants lead the best-of-seven NL Championship Series 3-1 after poor throws cost the Cardinals yet again.October ace Madison Bumgarner can pitch San Francisco to another pennant Thursday at home in Game 5. Struggling All-Star Adam Wainwright starts for St. Louis, now facing the same daunting deficit the Giants overcame to beat the Cardinals in the 2012 NLCS.Kansas City awaits the winner after completing its ALCS sweep of Baltimore earlier in the day. The wild-card Royals will host Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night.San Francisco climbed out of an early three-run hole, and back-to-back bad throws by Adams in the sixth inning helped the Giants rally — one night after a wild toss by St. Louis reliever Randy Choate allowed the winning run to score in the 10th inning.I think any time you can put pressure on the defence, youve got the opportunity for good things to happen, Posey said. Were able to come up with some big two-out RBIs to get back in the game.Minus injured catcher Yadier Molina again, the Cardinals were clinging to a 4-3 lead when San Francisco put runners at second and third in the sixth. Playing in with one out, the lumbering Adams backhanded Gregor Blancos bouncer and stumbled as he tried to set himself to throw home.Adams had trouble with the transfer, and his toss short-hopped catcher Tony Cruz as Juan Perez slid across with the tying run.Joe Panik then hit a grounder right to Adams, who stepped on first base before firing wildly to second in trying for a double play. Brandon Crawford stopped between third and home, yet was able to score easily when Adams threw wide of the bag.Thats kind of fitting of how our post-seasons been, Panik said. It might not be the prettiest way of scoring runs.Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta came way off the base to catch the ball, but had no play at the plate.The play at home, theres a fast runner at third and I was going in on the ball and threw on the run, Adams said. Just shouldve made the throw, though. The second one, I shouldve just touched first and checked home.Posey added an RBI single off Seth Maness to make it 6-4. The star catcher also had a sacrifice fly in the first and a run-scoring single in the third.These wild-card Giants joke about not needing hits and home runs to win, and theyre showing that with timely bunts, small ball and a few miscues from the opponent. The tying and go-ahead runs came home on balls that didnt leave the infield.The Giants have scored 12 of their 22 runs over their past six post-season games without the batter getting a hit.If youre not hitting the long ball, you have to find ways to manufacture runs, manager Bruce Bochy said.Yusmeiro Petit pitched three scoreless innings to win in relief of an ineffective Ryan Vogelsong. Petit has been a valuable long man — he delivered six shutout innings in an 18-inning NLDS victory at Washington.Hes been really good for us for a long time and hes finally getting some recognition. What a weapon to have, Posey said.Sergio Romo worked the eighth and Santiago Casilla finished for his second save of the series.A total of six Giants relievers held St. Louis scoreless over the final six innings.Marco Gonzales took the loss after issuing a leadoff walk to pinch-hitter Perez in the sixth and giving up a single to Crawford.The Giants havent homered in six games since Belt connected in the 18th inning at Washington, but it hasnt mattered much.A lot of these innings are set up with good at-bats early in innings, said Hunter Pence, who had an RBI single in the third.Cardinals rookie Kolten Wong showed off more post-season power, but his solo homer was wasted.Vogelsong was the only pitcher in major league history to yield no more than one run in his first five post-season starts, but his streak ended when he gave up four in three innings. San Francisco has still won all six of the post-season games he has started.SANDOVALS STREAKGiants 3B Pablo Sandoval has reached base in 22 straight post-season games dating to Game 4 of the 2012 NLDS on Oct. 12, 2012. That breaks Barry Bonds franchise record set from 2002-03. Bonds set down his crutches post hip surgery to throw out the ceremonial first pitch Wednesday.UP NEXTCardinals: Wainwright believes he has worked out some kinks in his delivery that have kept him from getting out of the fifth in his first two playoff starts this year. He has allowed eight earned runs and 17 hits in nine innings. I just dont want to get a bad rap for not being a good playoff pitcher, Wainwright said. Thats the time I want to shine the most.Giants: Bumgarner gave up four hits over 7 2-3 innings for a 3-0 win in Game 1. He pitched a four-hitter in San Franciscos 8-0 wild-card win at Pittsburgh before taking the loss in Game 3 of the NLDS against Washington. Air Max 97 Günstig .

Air Max 97 Schweiz .com) - The Carolina Panthers won for the first time in seven games last week, were without Cam Newton due to a car accident this week, but somehow sit atop the much-maligned NFC South.NEW YORK -- Diving through the air, fully outstretched, Josh Harrison might have been the only one in the ballpark who knew he was going to make that incredible catch in the eighth inning. And boy, it felt good when ball met leather -- even better than watching his tiebreaking homer soar over the left field wall an inning earlier. After a late-game switch from third base to left field, Harrison laid out to grab Yangervis Solartes line drive Sunday, helping to preserve the Pittsburgh Pirates first win in the Bronx in 54 years, 5-3 over the New York Yankees for a doubleheader split. "Home runs are great, but any time you can make a play in the field and help out the pitcher it feels good," Harrison said. "I knew once I left my feet it was in there." Mark Teixeira had a two-run single and Brett Gardner added an RBI double as New York beat Pittsburgh 4-3 in the opener of the first single-admission twinbill at Yankee Stadium since 2004. The Pirates had lost all eight games at Yankee Stadium in interleague play. They last beat New York on the road in Game 5 of the 1960 World Series. "Its just another win," said Pittsburgh starter Gerrit Cole, who grew up a Yankees fan. "We need as many as we can, and the other stuff doesnt matter." Cole (4-3), who turned down the Yankees when they drafted him in 2008 to go to UCLA, struck out eight in six sharp innings to help the Pirates snap a three-game skid. Starling Marte hit a two-run homer off Vidal Nuno in the sixth inning of the second game after striking out four times in the opener. Marte, though, left with left hamstring tightness in the seventh inning. Neil Walker and Tony Sanchez homered for Pittsburgh in the opener. "Ill be good for the next game," Marte said. Harrison, who ran into the third out of the fifth inning before a run could cross the plate, switched from third base to left field in place of Marte. Then in the eighth, with pinch-hitter Derek Jeter on first following a single, Solarte hit a sharp liner to left. Harrison raced to his right and caught it with a fully extended dive toward the line. "Harrison was a big reason they won the second game today. His defence, his offence really hurt us today. Sol put a great at-bat as well and hit a rocket," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "You dont see guys lay out 320 feet away very often, but he did." Former Yankees catcher Chris Stewart had two RBIs for the Pirates. Fill-in closer Mark Melancon, who broke into the big leagues with New York, pitched a perfect ninth for his sixth save. Solarte homered in the sixth to tie it 3-all and singled for the Yankees, who had won four straight. The teams looked as if they lost focus during the 38-minute break between games, coming out for Game 2 in front of a fraction of the 46,858 who attended the opener and making four quick errors.dddddddddddd. The second game was scheduled as a makeup for Friday nights rainout. Gardner was picked off third base in the first inning, a warmup for a sloppy second in which both clubs appeared to forget the fundamentals. Solarte made a throwing error, then Brian Roberts dropped a throw from Solarte on a force attempt to put runners at the corners. Stewart had an RBI single but Jose Tabata slowed coming around second with a leg injury and was tagged out trotting into third to end the inning. The Pirates were worse in the bottom half, allowing New York to score twice with two outs. Travis Snider let John Ryan Murphys single skitter through his legs in right field for a run. Snider had replaced Tabata in right field to start the inning. The Pirates said Tabata had tightness in his right hamstring. Brendan Ryan laid down a perfect squeeze to make it 2-1 and went to second on Coles throwing error. Gardner walked and Cole balked the runners to second and third, but Roberts popped out to second base. Harrison doubled to left with two outs in the fifth but slipped about halfway to third base and was tagged out in a rundown before Snider could cross home plate. "I tried to stay in it as long as I could," Harrison said. Harrison redeemed himself in the seventh with a drive to left off Alfredo Aceves (0-2). "He can surprise you," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said of Harrison, usually a bench player. "He does things with intent all the time." In the opener, Brian McCann had an RBI single in the first as New York scored all its runs in the first two innings on five hits off Charlie Morton (0-6). After Gardners RBI double in the second, Morton allowed just one baserunner through seven innings. Hiroki Kuroda (3-3) yielded three runs and five hits in six innings for his first win since April 12 against Boston. "As a pitcher, the win is always a good thing," Kuroda said through a translator. "Even though you may not have perfect stuff, to get the win is very encouraging." David Robertson, the fourth Yankees reliever, got four outs for his eighth save. NOTES: Yankees RF Carlos Beltran had a second cortisone shot to try to ease the discomfort in his right elbow from a bone spur. He will get a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday. ... LHP CC Sabathia (right knee) will see a doctor Monday to make a plan. Girardi said Sabathia will be out longer than 15 days, for sure. ... The Pirates streak of the leadoff batter reaching in eight straight games ended when Snider struck out looking. ' ' '
