PHILADELPHIA -- Denard Span delivered one of the Giants biggest hits this season. Adidas Running Shoes Outlet .Span homered leading off the 10th inning, and San Francisco beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 Thursday for just its fifth win in 14 games since the All-Star break.We needed this win more than ever, Span said.San Francisco, which lost the first two games of the series, has not been swept by Philadelphia in 10 years.Id say thats one of our bigger hits, manager Bruch Bochy said. It couldnt have come at a better time. To get a win here does a lot for the psyche and morale of the ballclub.Matt Moore made his first start for the NL West leader following his acquisition Monday from Tampa Bay. He allowed two runs and three hits in six innings and walked six -- matching his major league high.It started with Matt, Bochy said. He did a terrific job, just a great effort on his part.Moore gave up one hit through five innings and took a 2-1 lead into the sixth, when Freddy Galvis grounded into a forceout with the bases loaded. Moore then threw a called third strike past pinch-hitter Taylor Featherston.I was maybe a tad bit geared up, he said. I just kind of calmed down and got back to simple things.Span led off the 10th by sending a 2-2, 95 mph fastball from Severino Gonzalez (0-2) just inside the right-field foul pole, his third hit of the game.I was just trying to protect, he said. I felt good this series and want to build off this.Sergio Romo (1-0) earned the win without getting an out. Cesar Hernandez was caught stealing for the final out of the ninth when he overslid the base while Romo was facing his first batter.We were disappointed in that, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. He stole that base easily and slid past the bag and weve addressed that at length with him because he has a tendency to do that.Santiago Casilla pitched a 1-2-3 10th for his 25th save in 30 chances.Philadelphia starter Vince Velasquez gave up two runs and three hits in five innings.Brandon Crawford hit an RBI single in the first, but Aaron Altherrs run-scoring double tied the score in the bottom half. Span hit a sacrifice fly in the fifth.San Francisco put runners on first and second with no outs in the eighth. Brett Oberholtzer got three straight outs, the last on Altherrs diving catch on Brandon Belts sinking liner to center.TRAINERS ROOMPhillies: Velasquez called for a trainer in the fifth inning after he developed a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand. The right-hander was able to pitch through the fifth, but Mackanin didnt let him go back for the sixth due to the blister.I didnt want to get him into a situation where he might miss his next start, Mackanin said. It wasnt a bad blister, but you could see it developing.EASY WINRomo is the first pitcher since 2009 to earn a victory without officially facing a batter. Colorados Alan Embree last accomplished the feat, on July 7, 2009. The previous Giants pitcher to do it was Tyler Walker on Sept. 17, 2005 against the Dodgers.WALK THIS WAYPhiladelphias Tommy Joseph walked a career-high three times. He had just 11 walks in 203 at-bats this season entering Thursday.NEXT MAN UPMackanin said 22-year-old right-hander Jake Thompson will make his first big league start Saturday at San Diego. Taken by Detroit in the second round of the 2012 amateur draft, Thompson was acquired by the Phillies last season as part of the deal that sent left-hander Cole Hamels to Texas.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Jeff Samardzija (9-7, 4.30) takes the mound for San Francisco when the Giants open a three-game series at NL East-leading Washington on Friday night.Phillies: Philadelphia begins a six-game trip on Friday night in San Diego when RHP Jeremy Hellickson (8-7, 3.70) faces LHP Christian Friedrich (4-6, 4.72).Adidas Running Shoes 2018 . It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. Blue Adidas Running Shoes . With the short-handed Warriors needing help from someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs with 18 points and eight rebounds. It was just enough to help lift Golden State to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. 2013 League of Legends World Champions: SK Telecom T12015 League of Legends World Champions: SK Telecom T1In the (literal) middle of those two Summoners Cup runs by the worlds greatest League of Legends player, Lee Faker Sang-hyeok, and his team was none other than Edward Gamings Heo PawN Won-seok. A thorn in Fakers side since his early days as a pro player, PawN has continually been the only mid laner in the world to consistently get the best of Faker. The Little General won the Summoners Cup in 2014 on Samsung White while Faker watched from home, and then defeated him less than a year later at the final of the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational where his new team from China, Edward Gaming.After being inserted in and out of the lineup over the past year due to health concerns, it appeared as if PawN would be missing this years World Championships. The team played with Fakers former backup on SKT T1, Lee Scout Ye-Chan, all the way through a perfect summer season where the rookie starter shined in the final against Royal Never Give Up. Despite the spotless record, however, as the curtain was lifted for the 2016 Worlds, there was PawN, seated in the mid lane as starter like the past two Worlds that have gone past.The team didnt go on tilt or anything after yesterdays game, said PawN, referring to the opening day upset his team suffered against Brazils INTZ. The team just got together and talked a lot about what to do to win todays game [against AHQ] and what they should do in the future.The loss to INTZ will go down as the biggest upset in Worlds history to date. INTZ, a team from the wildcard region of Brazil, upended one of the odds-on favorites to hoist the Summoners Cup by the end of the tournament. INTZ was able to snowball an early advantage on the top side of the map and never look back, leaving EDG to exit the venue as losers for the first time in months.It was really tough for [us] because the Gnar and Irelia [lost matchup] meant we were losing in the split push, he said. And after the first dive in the bottom lane failed out, we lost a turret, and it set off [a series of errors]. Grey Adidas Running Shoes. Fridays match was a different story entirely against ahq e-sports. EDG might not be in the form many expected from a title contender, but the Chinese champion was able to make sure it could keep afloat in a competitive Group C that has all teams tied at 1-1 after the first two days of competition. PawN supported his team on Karma while the ace of the team, Kim Deft Hyuk-kyu, took over on his Lucian to smash the Taiwanese clubs bottom lane. While the top lane remains a gaping hole in EDGs defenses, the other four players on the team, including PawN, contend for the title of best quartet in the entire competition.Before, I wanted INTZ to come in second because they beat us, he said, trying to pick which team will join EDG in Chicago for the bracket stage. But this rock-paper-scissors thing is going on, INTZ lost to H2k, AHQ beat H2k, so Im really confused on whats going to happen in the standings of the group.When speaking of EDGs bootcamp in Korea, PawN echoed the thoughts of many other Chinese and Korean pros by saying Team SoloMid was the toughest test from the western region while scrimmaging. Although losing on day one to EDGs Chinese rival Royal Never Give Up, the North Americans did come back with a statement win over South Koreas Samsung Galaxy in a blowout you primarily dont expect a Korean team to be on the end that is getting run around the map.My [and EDGs] immediate goal, after underestimating a team like INTZ, is to make it out of groups, winning every other game, and coming out in first.I want to think about what to tell Faker [when we meet again] after I get out of groups as #1, said PawN, focusing on the here and now instead of looking ahead. One step at a time and before he knows it, he might be back where his road usually leads him: facing Faker, and once again being the thorn in the side of the Unkillable Demon King. 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 ' ' '
