SAN FRANCISCO -- The way the San Francisco Giants are going these days, even a solid outing from their four-time All-Star and staff ace wasnt much help. The Fur Slide Acheter .Jay Bruce homered in his career-high fifth straight game, connecting off Madison Bumgarner and leading Dan Straily and the Cincinnati Reds over the slumping Giants 2-1 on Wednesday.The NL West leaders got just four hits and lost for the ninth time in 11 games since the All-Star break. The last-place Reds are 8-4 over that stretch.This is the way the game goes sometimes, Bumgarner said. Especially right now with this tough stretch weve been in, things have gotten magnified. Its unfortunate but we just have to keep coming out and battle them.Bruce connected for his 25th homer of the season. His sixth home run during his five-game streak broke a 1-all tie in the seventh inning.Hes an ace in every sense of the word. When he gives you something to hit, youve got to do something with it, and I was able to do that today, Bruce said. He really made one mistake all day and I was able to hit a home run. You really have to be aggressive with him. Hes a strike-thrower, hes going to be around the plate and hes going to make you put the ball in play. I was able to put a good swing on the ball and not miss it.Bumgarner (10-6) allowed one earned run and five hits in eight innings, striking out nine.Its disappointing when you have Bum throw the ball the way he did today, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. He gave up five hits and couldnt get a win. We just couldnt figure out Straily. We couldnt generate much offensively and its disappointing when you have your starter throw like that.We just couldnt get it going. Its a tough one, he said.The Giants have lost six of Bumgarners last eight starts. He hasnt had much run support of late, with the Giants scoring 10 runs in his last five games.Were trying to score as many runs for him as we can, Giants catcher Buster Posey said. It stinks and we have to find a way to get back on track.Straily (6-6) gave up three hits in 7 2/3 innings. He struck out five in his longest outing of the season. Straily improved to 2-0 in his career against Bumgarner.Definitely, you take pride in battling against the best in baseball, Straily said. Its no different than any other game, but when it happens on a day like today it makes it a little more special.Tony Cingrani pitched a scoreless ninth for his 12th save.Conor Gillaspie hit a solo homer for the Giants in the second.San Francisco left fielder Angel Pagan dropped a flyball in the fifth, setting up Tucker Barnharts tying sacrifice fly.The ball was hit hard, a tough play, Bochy said. I dont know if he lost it in the sun, He almost made a great catch, too.Pagan singled leading off the ninth but was forced out at second when shortstop Zack Cozart robbed Mac Williamson with a nice grab on a ball hit up the middle.If Williamsons ball gets in, its a different game, Bochy said. We would have had first and third there, but their shortstop made a great play on the ball.Joey Votto had two of the Reds six hits, extending his hitting streak to 12 games. Hes batting .500 (20 for 40) over that stretch.Brandon Belt was 0 for 2 with a walk, snapping his 11-game hitting streak against the Reds. He went into the game as a career .398 hitter vs. Cincinnati, including a .522 mark since the beginning of last season.YARD WORKThe Reds set an AT&T Park record with eight home runs in a three-game series (the Marlins hit eight in a four-game series in July 2010).TRAINERS ROOMGiants: INF Ramiro Pena, who left Tuesday nights game early with a groin injury after taking a bad hop, was a late scratch from Wednesdays lineup.UP NEXTReds: Off Thursday, then LHP Brandon Finnegan (5-8, 4.93 ERA) starts at San Diego. He has an 11.05 ERA over his last four outings.Giants: RHP Johnny Cueto (13-2, 2.53) will pitch Thursday in the opener of a four-game series against NL East-leading Washington. He is 7-3 with a 3.55 ERA in 11 career starts against the Nationals with a 16-inning scoreless streak dating to 2014. Suede Heart Reset Rose . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. Puma Creepers Bordeaux Velvet Homme/Femme . Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said. http://www.axthlete.com/creepers-puma-rihanna-pas-cher/puma-creepers-rose.html . Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. Geelongs latest milestone man Harry Taylor had an inauspicious start to life in the AFL.Taylor was taken with pick No.17 in the 2007 national draft, an occasion generally preceded by a sleepless night.The West Australian missed the fuss, waking-up to 84 missed calls including one from unimpressed Cats coach Mark Thompson.He said quite abruptly - why havent you been picking your phone up?, Taylor recalled ahead of his 200th match.I tried to sort of muddle my way through the story.Id put the draft on the backburner a little bit.I was 21 ... in my third year of studying physio at uni and we had about 16 exams.We had an end of year physio ball after exams, which was the day before the draft.Fellow veterans Andrew Mackie, Jimmy Bartel and Corey Enright have celebrated meaningful milestones this season.At the MCG on Sunday, when Geelong hope to defeat Richmond and clamber back into the top four, it will be Taylors time in the spotlight.It is a position the 30-year-old is not entirely comfortable with, despite being one of the best defenders in the league.Bartel described Taylor as quiet, intelligent and caring earlier this week.Taylor is undoubtedly a family man, which is why 2013 presented a challenge for the two-time premiership winner.Taylor opted to sign a five-year deal with the Cats but only after beiing actively pursued by Fremantle. PUMA Fenty Bow Slide Rose - Femme/Homme Tongs Et Sandales. My family was growing and getting to a stage where school and those sort of things had to be considered, he said.My wife and I are both from WA. All our family is there.We had to weigh up all those type of things. It was basically a pretty direct conversation with her and family, to work out where our life was going to go next.Taylor attributed his development to the likes of fellow defenders Enright, Matthew Scarlett, Tom Harley and Darren Milburn.I tried to hang around those guys as much as I possibly could, probably to the point of stalking, Taylor said.I know I learned best from watching.The key defender prides himself on educating the Cats young defenders in the same fashion.I feel like Im having more influence on the group this year, he said.Taylor is upbeat the Cats are within striking distance of another flag but added they must improve if its to happen in 2016.Our good is very good and our average is pretty average, so if we can close that gap, play a little bit more consistent and get some good form going into the finals, who knows? Taylor said.It is going to be one of the most open finals series weve had in a while. 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 ' ' '
