SAN FRANCISCO -- Sure, Jake Arrieta and Joe Maddon know all about what Madison Bumgarner has done on the postseason stage in recent years. Cheap FC Bayern Munich Jerseys .Just how good the big lefty has been and his San Francisco Giants, too. Theyre 9-0 in elimination games under manager Bruce Bochy, rallying from improbable deficits to win it all three times this decade -- every other year, and this is one of those even years.San Franciscos October theme this time: BeliEVEN.As the Chicago Cubs arrived Sunday in the Bay Area with a 2-0 NL Division Series lead and a chance to close out the home team, Maddon knows theres plenty that still must go right Monday night for his club to move closer to ending its World Series curse.Wed be foolish to be overconfident about this situation, Maddon said. Theyre really good, theyve done this before. That is a group that is just dripping with tested veterans and a manager thats outstanding. So you never take the Giants for granted. Never.The Cubs were in for an unexpected treat Sunday: The Blue Angels regularly buzzed over the bay during Fleet Week as Chicago wrapped up its afternoon work, with a few players and coaches stealing a glance up at the blue sky.Maddon found himself reflecting to his youth when Bumgarners name was brought up before an on-field workout. The 2014 World Series MVP has thrown 23 straight scoreless innings in the postseason, going 2-0 with a save in elimination games.Its like when I was a kid. I could only relate it to that. I was a Cardinals fan growing up, and seeing Bob Gibson do what he did in the `60s and then Mr. (Sandy) Koufax, what he did. So you have to kind of draw the parallels or the comparisons from when you were a kid, Maddon said.So I look at it as, wow, its just like what Gibson did, its like what Koufax did. And maybe with Whitey Ford and the Yankees prior to that. Its unique. So I hope the kids that are really watching right now understand how good this guy is and how it parallels throughout baseball history, what hes doing right now, he said.Bumgarner dazzled with a four-hitter last Wednesday in New York as the Giants eliminated the reigning NL champion Mets in the wild-card game. He did the same thing at Pittsburgh two years ago to get that championship run rolling.Even with all of the accolades and comparisons, Bumgarner just goes about his business ignoring any fanfare.When told of Maddons remarks about Gibson, Ford and Koufax, Bumgarner insisted he never thinks about where he might rank in postseason lore.You cant, MadBum said. As soon as you start buying into that its probably going to take a turn.Arrieta already has said he has no fear about this matchup, giving his respect to Bumgarner while also noting hes beatable.Hes been one of the best in the postseason for the last several years. We have got a challenge ahead of us, but we put ourselves in a really good position, obviously taking care of business at home with the opportunity to close the series out in three games and get back to Chicago and prepare, Arrieta said. He is tough, but at the same time we have got a pretty potent offense that he has to try and neutralize.Trailing in a postseason series or being on the brink of going home for the offseason has hardly seemed to faze Bochys teams in recent history. In 2012, the Giants became the first team to win three straight road games in a best-of-five series after dropping the first two in the division series at home to the Reds. San Francisco then rallied from a 3-1 deficit to beat St. Louis.This club has a history, and thats what you like about whats going on now, finding a way to win that game they have to win and moving on, Bochy said. Thats experience thats so vital to draw on. If you dont have that, you may not have that belief that you can do it. They know theyve done it.As brilliant as Bumgarner might be against the Cubs slugging lineup, the Giants must find a way to score runs -- or a run if thats all it takes in a likely pitchers duel -- to extend their season by at least one more day. Arrieta won 22 games and the NL Cy Young Award in 2015 and another 18 this season.Both pitchers are capable hitters, adding to the intrigue of Mondays matchup.I feel like well attack each other accordingly, Arrieta said, and not take it lightly. Cheap AC Milan FC Jerseys . -- Nate Robinson has played for seven teams, so beating one of them is no longer a rare occurrence. Cheap Iceland Jerseys . Schenn scored the game-winning goal and added two assists to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Tuesday. . But Bourque, who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, wont be in the lineup when the Habs travel to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Wednesday. ATLANTA -- Dustin Johnson powered his way down the fairways and occasionally out of the brutal rough at East Lake on Friday for a 3-under 67, giving him a one-shot lead over Kevin Chappell in the Tour Championship and moving him one round closer to the $10 million FedEx Cup prize.The U.S. Open champion is on a different level at the moment.Even on a demanding test like East Lake this year -- only 10 players remain under par -- Johnson is hitting his driver long and straight. His wedge game has gone from a weakness to a strength. A new putter he put in play two weeks ago when he won the BMW Championship is giving him a better feel for alignment.Small wonder that this was his seventh straight round at 68 or better during the FedEx Cup playoffs.Johnson was at 7-under 133.Chappell, one of two players at the Tour Championship who has yet to win on the PGA Tour, had a 68.Kevin Kisner (70) and Hideki Matsuyama (71) were four shots behind, while Rory McIlroy overcame another rough start on the front nine to post a 70. He was in the group five shots behind.If nothing else, Johnson all but eliminated nearly everyone not among the top five seeds vying for the FedEx Cup. McIlroy is No. 6 and still has a chance, though he would have to win the Tour Championship and Johnson would have to finish third.Jason Day is out of the picture. The worlds No. 1 player withdrew in the middle of a round at the second straight tournament, citing the same nagging back issues that he hopes will be cured by rest.By Day withdrawing, Johnson won the points-based PGA player of the year award and is likely to win the player vote as PGA Tour player of the year because of his three victories, with perhaps another to follow.NATIONWIDE CHILDRENS HOSPITAL CHAMPIONSHIPCOLUMBUS, Ohio -- Tag Ridings shot a 6-under 65 for a share of the second-round lead with Martin Flores in the Tour Finals Nationwide Childrens Hospital Championship.The 42-year-old Ridings was 52nd on the Tour regular-season money list and entered the third of four series events 36th in the race for 25 PGA Tour cards with $9,493.Flores bogeyed the final hole for a 66 to match Ridings at 8-under 134 on Ohio States Scarlet Course. Already guaranteed a PGA Tour card with a fifth-place finish on the money list, the 34-year-old Flores won the Lincoln Land Charity Championship in July for his first Tour title.The series features the top 75 players from the regular-season money list, Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tours FedEx Cup standings and non-members with enough PGA Tour money to have placed in the top 200 in the FedEx Cup had they been eligible.Flores and the other top-25 finishers on the money list earned PGA Tour cards. They are competing against each other for tour priority, with regular-season earnings counting in their totals .The other players are fighting for 25 cards based on series earnings. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Free Shipping. The last PGA Tour card went at $33,650 in 2013, $36,312 in 2014 and $32,206 last year.Two-time heart transplant recipient Erik Compton was tied for third at 6 under after a 69. He was 173rd in the FedEx Cup standings and is 63rd among the players vying for the 25 cards with $4,000.PACIFIC LINKS BEAR MOUNTAIN CHAMPIONSHIPVICTORIA, British Columbia -- Scott McCarron birdied five of the first six holes and finished with an 8-under 62 to take the first-round lead in the Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship.The 51-year-old McCarron birdied all four par-5 holes -- Nos. 1, 12, 13 and 18 -- in chilly conditions at Bear Mountain Resort, the first-year venue in the PGA Tour Champions event that was played in Hawaii from 2012-14.McCarron won the Principal Charity Classic in June in Iowa for his first victory on the 50-and-over tour after winning three times on the PGA Tour.Doug Garwood and Jerry Smith were tied for second at 64.

Davis added a 68 for a round total of 13-under 131 and three-day total of 32-under 398, one off the 54-hole record set by the United States in 2014.Australia is trying to win the Eisenhower Trophy for the fourth time, following victories in 1958, 1966 and 1996.Davis topped the individual standings at 14-under 201, two strokes ahead of Luck.Endycott had a non-counting 73.Ireland was second.
