SAN DIEGO -- Fighting for a postseason berth, Jeff Samardzija and the San Francisco Giants finally figured out the pesky San Diego Padres. Stephen Curry 3 Shoes .Angel Pagans single broke a scoreless tie in the eighth and Samardzija struck out nine in seven innings for the Giants, who beat the Padres 2-1 on Thursday night to keep pace with the New York Mets for the NL wild card lead.The Mets and Giants took a half-game lead over the idle St. Louis Cardinals in the wild card race. New York beat Philadelphia 9-8 in 11 innings.San Francisco continues to trail Los Angeles by six games in the NL West, but the Dodgers reduced their magic number to four by beating Colorado 7-4.The Giants faced a Padres lineup that included five rookies, three making their big league debut. The Giants snapped a six-game losing streak to the Padres, who have been their nemesis during their second-half skid. The Padres swept the Giants at San Francisco last week and in San Diego in the first series after the All-Star break. The Giants had swept the Padres three times in the first two months of the season.Samardzija joined the Giants as a free agent so he could pitch in games like this.Its great, thats why I signed up to come over here and play, was to be playing in September, important games in September, he said. Thats why we play this game, to compete at the highest level, and with the most on the line.I tried to hang in there in the game long enough and then we squeaked on through there in the eighth. It was a nice way to end it.Samardzija (12-10) allowed four hits in seven scoreless innings, and walked none.Hes a horse, manager Bruce Bochy said. Thats obviously part of the deal, what intrigued us about him, his stuff and how strong he is. Hes really good, throwing the ball well right now, all his pitches locating. Gave us what we needed.Joe Panik, who had been in an 0-for-24 slump, doubled to right-center opening the eighth against Christian Friedrich (5-11). His fly ball ticked off the end of rookie Hunter Renfroes glove, hit the ground and bounced over the fence. Kelby Tomlinson, pinch-hitting for Samardzija, singled to left to put runners on the corners and chase Friedrich. Brad Hand came on and induced Eduardo Nunez to hit into a force, with Panik holding at third. Pagan then hit a blooper that landed just fair and brought in Panik.Renfroe fielded Paniks blooper and made a strong throw, but first baseman Wil Myers cut it off.Since there was no other play there, Wil probably wants to let that ball go, manager Andy Green said. I think hed say that right now. I dont think were accustomed to Hunter Renfroes arm yet. That is a very unique play to see a ball drop on the line like that and see a guy coming up firing like that. I dont know how far up the line it was going to be to Hedgy (Austin Hedges), but I thought it was going to be close enough to be an interesting play at the plate. ... Theres some arm strength there.Hunter Pence doubled with two outs to bring in Nunez.Padres pinch-hitter Alex Dickerson homered off Derek Law with one out in the eighth.Sergio Romo pitched the ninth for his second save in as many chances. Schimpf doubled with one out before Renfroe popped up to first base and fellow rookie Carlos Asuaje grounded to short to end it.Padres outfielders Renfroe and Manual Margot, and second baseman Asuaje were making their first big league starts.Renfroe, Margot, Asuaje and Hedges were called up Wednesday from Triple-A El Paso. Renfroe and Asuaje made their big league debuts as pinch-hitters on Wednesday night while Margot made his as a pinch-runner. Hedges made his big league debut last year.Renfroe singled to left for his first career hit in the second and then singled to center in the fifth.Padres reliever Jose Torres made his big league debut when he started the ninth.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: Bochy said RHP Johnny Cueto, who was forced out of his start Tuesday night with a strained groin, is improving and will try to throw on Friday. ... Bochy said SS Brandon Crawfords dislocated pinky on his glove hand was doing a lot better. Yesterday he had a tough day. It was really sore.

Stephen Curry Two Mid . -- Three close looks at the bucket, three misses. Under Armour Speedform Phenom Trainer .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. . Andrew Luck lost his favourite target and the Indianapolis locker room lost one of its most revered leaders when Reggie Wayne was diagnosed Monday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee that will cost him the rest of the season. Mixed martial arts fighters often excel in a particular discipline or possess a certain attribute that makes them stand out in the Octagon. But what if those individual areas of excellence and superior attributes could all be compiled to make up the?perfect fighter?In an attempt to bring that idea of the best all-round fighter to life, a panel of in-house MMA experts voted on fighters who best represent 10 featured traits, collectively crafting their perfect version. Only current male fighters were considered, as a female version will follow soon.Editorial note:?Jon Jones was nominated in six of the 10 categories -- more than any other fighter. And yet, while theres no doubt Jones is among the most athletic and well-rounded fighters of his generation, he didnt finish better than second place in the voting of any one category.Artwork done by Todd Detwiler, special to ESPN. Descriptions written by Brett Okamoto.Brain: Dominick CruzWhether its behind the desk as an analyst or inside the UFC Octagon, Cruz has proven time and again that he has the sharpest mind in the game. His style of fighting is uniquely his own, although it borrows from several of his historical favorites -- including the late, great Muhammad Ali.Runner-up: Conor McGregorChin: Roy NelsonNelsons chin (and overall toughness) defies science. Nelson set a statistical record in June 2013 by absorbing 106 significant strikes in his UFC 161 bout with Stipe Miocic -- without being knocked out. Keep in mind one significant strike from Miocic is usually enough to drop another man (or any other living creature). Nelson took 106.Runner-up: Nate DiazHeart: Frankie EdgarEdgars survival of horrific opening rounds in back-to-back title fights against Gray Maynard in 2011 will go down in infamy -- as should his ability to fight through a nasty Benson Henderson upkick in 2012. When push comes to shove, Edgar is simply a machine. He has never been finished in an 11-year career and seemingly never taken a round off.Runner-up: Jon JonesLeft hand: Conor McGregorNo one is a bigger fan of McGregors left hand than McGregor himself. He is quite proud of it -- for good reason. He has finished 85 percent of his wins by knockout, and the left hand has played a starring role in the majority of those. Thats the same left hand, of coursse, that knocked out the legendary Jose Aldo?in just 13 seconds in 2015. Under Armour Speedform Studiolux Low. Runner-up: Robbie LawlerRight hand: Anthony JohnsonFrankly, there is nothing in the sport right now quite like the knockout power of Anthony Kewoa Johnson. He is consistently napping durable, 205-pound men like Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira. He owns the scariest right hand there is, especially following the retirement of Dan Hendersons patented H-Bomb.Runner-up: Stipe MiocicWrestling: Daniel CormierCormiers amateur wrestling resume is quite lengthy, and it has translated well to the cage. Weve seen him pick up larger men -- like the 250-pound Josh Barnett -- and somersault them through the air. It has also played an obvious role in him winning (and defending) the UFC light heavyweight championship.Runner-up: Jon JonesKicks: Jose AldoPicture an axe ... turning lumber into kindling. Aldos knockout reel is impressive, but it has always been his vicious, damage-inducing leg kicks that have made audiences wince most.?Runner-up: Luke RockholdKnees: Alistair OvereemPrevious opponents have described Overeems knees in the way one might describe a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The Dutch kickboxer has had more than 50 professional fights, and those knees have come into play in just about every single one.Runner-up: Anderson SilvaSpeed: Demetrious JohnsonIt almost feels criminal to acknowledge Johnsons speed and nothing else. Every aspect of the flyweight champions game is impressive, but it should be noted this nod to Johnsons speed applies to more than the traditional definition. The speed in his transitions, reaction times and combinations is all impressive.Runners-up: Dominick Cruz and John DodsonSubmission: Demian MaiaEver since Maia broke into the UFC in 2007 with three consecutive bonus-winning submissions, he has been viewed as one of the most dangerous grapplers in the sport. Nothing in the nine years since has changed that narrative, and in fact, Maia has only gotten better at wrestling opponents to the floor to use his distinguished grappling skill. At times, its almost as if hes working with more limbs than his opposition.Runner-up: Fabricio Werdum Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys China ' ' '
