k overall theyve done a good job. Today we needed them, Bochy said of his bullpen. The line just did a great job there. The `pen Antworten

SAN FRANCISCO -- With setup man Sergio Romo back in his normal role of pitching the eighth inning, the Giants certainly feel a lot better about their bullpen.Going into the All-Star break with at least a share of the best record in baseball doesnt hurt either.On a day when starter Jake Peavy failed to make it out of the fifth inning, San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy used a steady stream of relievers to shut down Arizona and preserve the Giants 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.I think overall theyve done a good job. Today we needed them, Bochy said of his bullpen. The line just did a great job there. The `pen helped win that game for us.The Giants bullpen, which began the day tied with Cincinnati with a major league-worst 17 blown saves, combined for 4 2/3 scoreless innings.Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his 21st save.That helped San Francisco to its second straight home win over Arizona after getting swept in a four-game series at AT&T Park in April.These guys are also still trying to figure themselves out, what it takes physically to endure a full season, said Romo, who retired all three batters he faced in his third appearance since coming off the disabled list on July 4. Theres a couple guys, this is their first full season. A lot of it is feeling themselves out. But then again, they came in here because theyve got stuff and theyre ready to rock.Brandon Belt had an RBI triple, Grant Green homered for the first time this season and Angel Pagan added two hits for the Giants, who have won seven of nine and are a major league-best 56-33.George Kontos (2-1), one of six relievers used by Bochy after Peavy was knocked out of the game, retired four batters for the win.Arizonas Robbie Ray (4-8) gave up three runs and six hits in five innings in his third start against San Francisco this season. He struck out seven and walked three.Pagan singled with two outs in the third then had to be checked by a team trainer after getting hit in the back of the head by the ball while stealing second base. Belt followed with his triple to right-center.The Diamondbacks took the lead with four consecutive hits to open the fourth before Greens two-run home run in the bottom of the inning put the Giants ahead 3-2.We had opportunities to get guys in and we didnt do it, Arizona manager Chip Hale said. The guys in that room are taking responsibility. Its not like theyre ducking it or making excuses.ON THE MONEYAll-Star catcher Buster Posey has thrown out 50 percent of base stealers this season but showed off his accuracy in a completely different fashion when he was tossing the ball back to Peavy in the fourth. Peavy had his headed turned while yelling at third base umpire Quinn Wolcott over a call on a checked swing and wasnt paying attention as the ball arced in the air, deflected off his chest and landed cleanly in his glove. I was so hot over the check swing that it wasnt comical in the moment, Peavy said. It was funny to look back on.TRAINERS ROOMDiamondbacks: RHP Zack Greinke was expected to throw after the game for the first time since going on the disabled list with a strained left oblique last week. ... RHP Daniel Hudson was activated off the bereavement list..Giants: RHP Matt Cain will make one more rehab start in the minors before rejoining the big league club. Bochy indicated Cain will likely pitch in a two-game series in Boston on July 19-20 but did not say which game. ... INF Kelby Tomlinson (left thumb sprain) is continuing his rehab with Triple-A Sacramento.UP NEXTDiamondbacks: RHP Archie Bradley (3-4) starts the series finale Sunday.Giants: LHP Madison Bumgarner (9-4), who was voted in but will not pitch in the All-Star game, goes for San Francisco.

The Big Ten enters the final month of the regular season with eight of the 14 teams still in realistic contention for a spot in the conference championship game Dec. 3. Heres a look at the road each team must face as it tries to make it to Indianapolis:No. 2 MICHIGAN (No. 2 CFP)Record: 8-0, 5-0, 1st place in East.Remaining schedule: Maryland, at Iowa, Indiana, at No. 6 Ohio State.Why the Wolverines make it to Indy: They have the best defense in the country, the games most dynamic player in Jabrill Peppers and a quarterback in Wilton Speight who keeps the offense on schedule and takes care of the ball. They end their four-game skid against Ohio State and win in Columbus for the first time since 2000.Why the Wolverines stay home: Ohio State beats them for a fifth year in a row or they slip up in a tricky game at Iowa.---No. 6 OHIO STATE (No. 6 CFP)Record: 7-1, 4-1, T-2nd place in East.Remaining schedule: Nebraska, at Maryland, at Michigan State, Michigan.Why the Buckeyes make it to Indy: Their top-10-in-the-nation defense recaptures the dominance it showed in September. J.T. Barrett keeps willing them to wins. They win their biggest home games of the year against Nebraska and Michigan.Why the Buckeyes stay home: Special teams foibles, such as the ones that cropped up late against Penn State, or defensive letdowns like the ones that happened against Northwestern. Offense continues to be inconsistent. They lose to Michigan for the first time in five years.---No. 20 PENN STATE (No. 12 CFP)Record: 6-2, 4-1, T-2nd place in East.Remaining schedule: Iowa, at Indiana, at Rutgers, Michigan State.Why the Nittany Lions make it to Indy: They have the easiest remaining schedule among the three East contenders. Big Ten rushing leader Saquon Barkley shreds defenses that all rank seventh and lower in the conference against the run. QB Trace McSorley continues his streak of four straight turnover-free games.Why the Nittany Lions stay home: The dam breaks on a defense that has gone from middling to above average in recent weeks. The injury bug that bit them hard early returns.---No. 9 NEBRASKA (No. 10 CFP)Record: 7-1, 4-1, 1st place in West.Remaining schedule: at Ohio State, Minnesota, Maryland, at Iowa.Why the Cornhuskers make it to Indy: They win at Ohio State to break a 19-year drought in road games against top-10 opponents. Tommy Armstrong Jr. makes plays with his legs and avoids bad decisions in the passing game. The defense continues to limit big plays and intercept passes.Why the Cornhuskers stay home: They lose to Ohio State, and Wisconsin, which owns the tiebreaker against them, wins out. Armstrong throws bad interceptions. The ooffensive line cant hold up because of injuries.dddddddddddd Their dominance in fourth quarters wanes in close games.---No. 8 WISCONSIN (No. 8 CFP)Record: 6-2, 3-2, T-2nd in West.Remaining schedule: at Northwestern, Illinois, at Purdue, Minnesota.Why the Badgers make it to Indy: They end a five-game road losing streak against Northwestern and win out. They get sharper performances from QBs Alex Hornibrook and Bart Houston. RB Dare Ogunbowale complements Corey Clement the way he did against Nebraska. The defense keeps doing what its been doing.Why the Badgers stay home: The defense sustains another major injury to a starter. Hornibrook and Houston cant get out of their own way and continue a pattern thats seen them throw nine TD passes against 10 interceptions.---MINNESOTARecord: 6-2, 3-2, T-2nd in West.Remaining schedule: Purdue, at Nebraska, Northwestern, at Wisconsin.Why the Gophers make it to Indy: They successfully navigate an extremely difficult stretch of three games after hosting Purdue. Rodney Smith continues his streak of 100-yard games. The defense suddenly becomes better than average.Why the Gophers stay home: QB Mitch Leidner and his teammates dont play the best football of their careers. Theres slippage in their high red-zone efficiency and their league-best 1.25 turnover margin.---IOWARecord: 5-3, 3-2, T-2nd in West.Remaining schedule: at Penn State, Michigan, at Illinois, Nebraska.Why the Hawkeyes make it to Indy: They find a way to win at home, where theyre 2-3, and get through the second-toughest finishing schedule in the league besides Marylands. Their middle-of-the-pack offense suddenly gets a jolt and keeps taking care of the ball.Why the Hawkeyes stay home: The last four games are too taxing for a team thats underperformed all season. A bland offense stays that way against the tough defenses coming up. The defense drops off at all.---NORTHWESTERNRecord: 4-4, 3-2, T-2nd in West.Remaining schedule: Wisconsin, at Purdue, at Minnesota, Illinois.Why the Wildcats make it to Indy: They dont let a close loss at Ohio State trip them up during a mostly positive second half of the season. Clayton Thorson maintains the form thats seen him throw 10 TDs against two interceptions the past four games. Austin Carr remains the best receiver in the Big Ten.Why the Wildcats stay home: They cant find a way to move the ball on the ground beyond Justin Jackson. Opponents have a 64-percent completion rate and throw for 275 yards a game.---More AP college football: Camo China NFL Jerseys Disocunt Football Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
