SAN FRANCISCO -- It took Giants All-Star catcher Buster Posey nearly four years to get his first career game-ending home run. http://www.stansmithtrainersuk.com/women-s-adidas-originals-zx-700-shoes-purple-light-blue-pink-university-red-g23283.html . Guillermo Quiroz did it in his first season with the defending World Series champs. Of course, it helped facing a pitcher Quiroz was very familiar with. One day after Poseys milestone hit in the series opener against the Dodgers, Quiroz matched him with a home run off Dodgers closer and former teammate Brandon League with one out in the 10th inning, lifting San Francisco to a 10-9 win over Los Angeles on Saturday night. "He hung a split-finger fastball," said Quiroz, who played with League in Toronto and Seattle. "I know him pretty well. ... So I kind of knew what kind of pitch he was trying to get me out with." The Giants blew a 5-0 lead and wasted a bases-loaded opportunity in the ninth before Quiroz hit an 0-2 pitch from League (0-1) into the left field stands. Quiroz pumped his fist as soon as he left the batters box and scurried around the bases with his first career game-ending hit. He is 4 for 6 this season as a pinch hitter after making the club as a bit of a long shot in spring training. "I wasnt expecting a home run off a tough closer like that," San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. "For (Quiroz) to do that is impressive. Good for him. Thats the ending of a wild game. They did a good job of coming back but so did we." Santiago Casilla (3-2) pitched two innings for the victory. The two teams used 12 pitchers and combined for 19 runs, 30 hits and stranded 24 runners in a game that lasted 4 hours, 11 minutes. San Francisco needed every bit of it to record its 11th comeback victory of the season -- tops in the majors. A.J. Ellis homered and was one of six Dodgers with two hits as Los Angeles lost for the fifth time in seven games. "Tonight, in a sense, is encouraging," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "It was as good as you can feel about a loss as you can." Both teams had a chance to win it in the ninth. Los Angeles got a one-out single from Dee Gordon but failed to advance him past second, while the Giants loaded the bases before Posey hit into an inning-ending double play. The Dodgers havent had a good time at all in the first two games of this series. One day after left-hander Ted Lilly went on the disabled list, Los Angeles lost shortstop Hanley Ramirez to a hamstring injury less than a week after his return from an off-season thumb injury. Then first baseman Adrian Gonzalez was a late scratch with neck pain. San Francisco, on the other hand, won its fifth straight. Gordon put the Dodgers up 9-8 in the seventh when he drew a leadoff walk against Javy Lopez and was sacrificed to second. Gordon stole third and scored on a headfirst slide into home to beat the throw from San Francisco second baseman Marco Scutaro following Carl Crawfords infield grounder. Pablo Sandovals sacrifice fly in the bottom of the seventh tied it at 9-all. The Giants batted around in the first inning and led 5-0 after two to chase Dodgers starter Matt Magill. Posey had a two-run double to help the defending World Series champs take their early lead. Ellis homered off San Francisco starter Ryan Vogelsong with one out in the fourth before Los Angeles sent 12 men to the plate and took the lead in the fifth. Matt Kemp had a two-run double while Gordon tripled in two runs when his hit bounced past sliding right fielder Hunter Pence. Gordon later scored on Nick Puntos single. After Andres Torres ended an 0-for-14 slump with a solo home run off reliever Javy Guerra in the fifth to pull the Giants within 8-7 and Posey scored the tying run on a wild pitch by Paco Rodriguez in the sixth. The two teams traded runs in the seventh, setting the stage for the finish. NOTES: Giants CF Angel Pagan left the game after the fifth inning with a right hamstring strain. ... San Franciscos starting pitchers havent recorded a win since April 21, the teams longest drought since a 14-game stretch in 2010. ... Magill threw 43 pitches in the first inning. ... Injured Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke threw a 60-pitch bullpen session in his latest step back from a broken left clavicle. "He felt like he had a lot more left, so that was good," Mattingly said. ... LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (3-1), who starts the series finale for Los Angeles, is coming off a 12-strikeout performance against Colorado. Hell oppose San Francisco RHP Matt Cain (0-2), who is seeking his first win of the season. http://www.stansmithtrainersuk.com/men-s-nike-shox-r4-running-shoes-white-black.html . Kuznetsov, who was selected by the Capitals in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, has been playing for his hometown team Chelyabinsk Traktor of the KHL. http://www.stansmithtrainersuk.com/men-s-adidas-ultra-boost-running-shoes-white-red.html . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. http://www.stansmithtrainersuk.com/men-s-nike-air-huarache-shoes-black-venom-green-318429-030.html . Q: Team Canada announces their Olympic roster three weeks from today. Who is general manager Steve Yzerman watching? LeBrun: Over the last 48 hours, hes taken in the home-and-home between the Dallas Stars and Colorado Avalanche with Jamie Benn and Matt Duchene being the obvious targets.With Fridays win the Winnipeg Jets improve to 2-0 on the season, winning both games after giving up the first goal of the game. The home opener for the Jets featured a physical start with the Jets outhitting the Kings by a 10-4 count before the first commercial break. But the shots on goal tally very much favoured the Kings, outshooting the Jets 18-7 in the first period, a period that ended in a 1-1 tie thanks to a number of big saves by Ondrej Pavelec. Matt Greenes point shot went off Dustin Byfuglien and in, but less than two minutes later Evander Kanes shot was blocked by Greene, with the puck coming right back to Kane and a quick wrist shot beat Jonathan Quick to tie the game 1-1. Kane had three shots on goal and four hits in the opening period. In the second period the Kings kept putting pucks to the net and at one time were outshooting the Jets 25-9 before the Jets got going and went on an 11-1 run in shots, taking the lead on Olli Jokenins 300th NHL goal. Prior to that goal the Jets had one called back, on this ruling from the NHL – Video review determined that Blake Wheelers shot entered the net after it had come off its moorings. According to rule 78.5: “apparent goals shall be disallowed by the referee when the net becomes displaced accidently.” After watching replays Jets fans on the TSN 1290 post game show called in feeling Quick had deliberately dislodged the net. The Jets chased Quick in the third on back to back goals by Devin Setoguchi. The first one was a deflection of a Kane shot (the goal was initially credited to Kane), the second was on a wrap-around on a play started by Kanes speed. The 4-1 lead had the sold out crowd at MTS Centre in a party mood but the Kings almost spoiled the party as back to back power play goals 4:44 apart made it a one goal game with over four minutes left. The comeback ended with an empty net goal by Bryan Little making it a 5-3 final. It was the Jets first victory in three home openers. For Setoguchi it was his 19th career multi-point game (he has two hat-tricks, a regular season one against Colorado and a one in the playoffs against Detroit), and his 10th career three-point game. http://www.stansmithtrainersuk.com/men-s-women-s-adidas-originals-tubular-defiant-shoes-core-black-off-white-s75247.html. For Kane it was his seventh career three point game, while his first period fight with Colin Fraser was his eighth career scrap. He ended the game with a team high seven shots on goal. “With a heavy team like them you have to let them know early you wont be run out of your own building,” commented Kane post-game. Jokinen also had an assist, giving him 399 career assists and 699 career points. Jokinen was a Los Angeles draft pick in 1997, third overall behind Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau. Byfuglien lead in ice time with 23:52 and his game drew praise from head coach Claude Noel. “He was physical, got his shots through, made good first passes.” As for the game, Noel had this to say: “We have a way of making games exciting. We got ourselves in penalty trouble, lost face-offs (Jets won only 37% in this game), got kicked out on face-offs, were not in shooting lanes. But we have to stay out of the box.” Jets gave up two power play goals for the second straight game, while scoring one power play goal for the second straight game. The first period shots on goal had the coach concerned. “We had a slow start, got better in the second and third. We passed up too many shots in the first, turned pucks over. That changed in the second. Frolik forced a turnover on Jokinens goal and it got us going. We are learning the necessary things to get us into the playoffs, and managing the puck is one of them. We did a lot of good things in the game, got a lot of good things from a lot of people.” Next up for the Jets is a home game Sunday against the Anaheim Ducks (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). The game will mark Teemu Selannes final NHL game in the city he started his career, with a 76-goal rookie season in 92-93.
