#1 squad internationally, by jinshuiqian0713 02.11.2019 05:29

PHOENIX -- Paul Goldschmidt seems to hit whatever Tim Lincecum throws at him. So does Aaron Hill. Neither one is about to question why. Theyre just going to enjoy the success while it lasts. Hill drove in two runs, and Goldschmidt had two hits off Lincecum, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks send the San Francisco Giants to their sixth straight loss, 4-1 on Friday night. "You dont want to take it lightly because baseball can turn at any moment," said Hill, who is 11 for 19 against Lincecum. "He is a great pitcher and had a great career, and you dont want to make it sound like its easy. Hes a great pitcher and its not easy." The Giants still lead the NL West, but have lost nine of 10 to see a lead that was once 9 1-2 games dwindle to less than four. The last-place Diamondbacks extended San Franciscos misery behind a gritty effort by Josh Collmenter (5-4) and by knocking around Lincecum (5-5). Hill had run-scoring hits in the fourth and fifth innings, and Goldschmidt had a single and double to raise his average to .577 against the two-time Cy Young Award winner. Collmenter fought through five innings to win for the first time in four starts. Arizonas bullpen picked it up from there. Three pitchers worked scoreless innings, and Addison Reed had a perfect ninth to close out his 17th save. It was Arizonas third win in 10 games and another frustrating loss in what is becoming a long stream of them for the Giants. "Its been that way here through this tough streak," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "We are missing the big hit, kind of keep the line moving. We had some great at-bats, stretched him (Collmenter) out, but he dodged some bullets there." Collmenter had lost two straight starts, allowing six runs in six innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers his last time out. The right-hander laboured through his night, needing 31 pitches to get through the first. Pablo Sandoval had a run-scoring triple in the inning, chugging his way around the bases after centre fielder Ender Inciarte just missed a diving catch in the gap. Collmenter continued to run up his pitch count, yet found ways to wriggle out of jams. He walked two in the fifth inning and got out of that by striking out Sandoval and getting Michael Morse to fly out to deep centre. Collmenter allowed a run and four hits, struck out four and walked four while throwing a season-high 109 pitches. "I just continued to battle," Collmenter said. "I dont think Ive ever had a clean, crisp outing against these guys for whatever reason. But I felt as good as I have in the last few starts and was able to make some good pitches." Lincecum was solid in his previous two starts, allowing five combined runs after giving up eight against Cincinnati on June 3. Like Collmenter, he struggled. Unlike Collmenter, he didnt always get out of it. Arizona scored two runs off the right-hander in the fourth inning, on Hills single and a double by Martin Prado. Arizona added a run in the fifth on a run-scoring triple by Chris Owings, who was thrown out at the plate while trying for an inside-the-park homer. Hill made it 4-1 with a sacrifice fly that scored Goldschmidt, who improved to 15 for 26 against Lincecum with his second hit of the night, a double off the wall in left-centre. Lincecum allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings. "I left too many pitches over the plate, and you saw what they did with them," Lincecum said. NOTES: The Diamondbacks signed first-round draft pick Touki Toussaint. Arizona took the right-hander from Coral Springs (Fla.) Christian Academy with the 16th pick in this years draft. ... Giants OF Angel Pagan missed his fourth straight game with lower back pain, but Bochy said he could be back in the lineup Saturday night. ...

Kings. Jonathan Quick turned aside each and every one of them and so many more - 32 in all - as he and the Kings nudged the Rangers to the brink of elimination on a sticky Monday night in Manhattan. “He was obviously the best player on the ice tonight,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said glumly afterward. Asked what went wrong, Vigneault deferred to Quick. “We couldnt score,” he said. This was a flashback to the remarkable Quick of two years earlier, the Quick who rung up three shutouts and a .946 save percentage in a near-flawless march to the Kings first Stanley Cup. The now 28-year-old hadnt been nearly as dominant this time around. He entered Game 3 with a mild .906 save percentage while sprinkling in the usual assortment of game-changing stops, including a breakaway save on Carl Hagelin in the dying moments of regulation in Game 1. “I think that was his best game of the playoffs,” Drew Doughty said of Quick in a visitors dressing room that remained cool and business-like, despite the Cup drawing near. “He played fantastic for us tonight. He made some big saves, saves he had no business making.” Most memorable and crowd-deafening among them was a heroic stop on Mats Zuccarello in the opening period, one that saw the Kings netminder employ every last ounce of will to keep the puck from crossing the line – the net appeared open – his paddle the ultimate saving grace. Some on thhe L.ddddddddddddA. bench, including captain Dustin Brown, thought Zuccarello simply missed the gaping cage only to discover later on replay that it was Quick who kept it out. “Hes the best in the world,” said Jarret Stoll. “Hes going to come up with those saves sometimes, it doesnt surprise us.” His brilliance only continued thereafter. Amid the aforementioned barrage of shots in a second period plagued with penalties – L.A. was a perfect on six penalty kills – Quick calmly brushed aside Rick Nashs hard charge to the net before swatting Derick Brassards attempt away for another glowing stick save. Brown, also a teammate of Quick with the American squad internationally, is past being surprised by such theatrics in the crease. “The best example is playing at the Olympics and seeing other guys react to it and Im just sitting there because Ive played with him long enough and hes made enough of those saves you kind of expect him to do it,” said Brown. Born in nearby Connecticut and a Rangers fan growing up – the 90-minute drive kept him from attending many games – Quick had never played an NHL game in the historic Mecca of New York hockey, though he did take to the ice briefly as a 12-year-old in one rare visit. This performance will surely eclipse such a memory. Cloaked in a hoodie and sweats afterward, Quick downplayed any added meaning to his debut on the hallowed ice of MSG. “It meant it was a playoff hockey game,” he said slyly. “We were trying to win a hockey game.” One more and the taste will be a whole lot sweeter.
