SAN FRANCISCO -- Madison Bumgarner has rediscovered his winning ways.Now he just needs to find his winning form.With a showdown looming Monday with Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, Bumgarner gets a tune-up against a team he has dominated, the San Diego Padres, in the finale of a three-game series Wednesday.The Giants (77-67) will enter the afternoon affair in desperation mode. They suffered consecutive losses to the Padres to open the three-game series, including a gut-wrencher when San Diego rallied for five runs in the ninth inning Tuesday for a 6-4 triumph.The late turnaround prevented the Giants from gaining a game on the Dodgers (81-63) in the National League West. Instead, San Francisco lost a game to both the New York Mets (77-68) and St. Louis Cardinals (76-68) in the wild-card race.Where San Francisco will stand when it arrives in Los Angeles on Monday will depend on Bumgarners outing against the Padres, then a critical four-game home series against the Cardinals that begins on Thursday.The Cardinals (76-68) could tie the Giants in the wild-card standings with a win Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs and a third straight San Francisco loss to the Padres.We just have to put this one behind us, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Tuesdays debacle. That was tough. Like a punch in the stomach.The Giants chances of catching the Dodgers and/or holding off the Cardinals hinge on the left arm of Bumgarner, who on Aug. 7 saw his record fall to 10-7 with his fifth consecutive non-winning effort.But the 2014 World Series Most Valuable Player has rebounded to win four of his last six starts, improving his record to 14-8 along the way.While he has gone 3-1 in his last five outings, however, Bumgarner has been anything but dominant. He has allowed 18 runs and 31 hits in those 29 innings.Fortunately for Bumgarner, a visit by the Padres gives him an opportunity to shape up before the meeting with Kershaw.Bumgarner hasnt lost in San Diegos last four trips at AT&T Park in San Francisco, allowing just four runs in 30 1/3 innings (1.19 ERA) while going 3-0.A win Wednesday not only would help the Giants but would give the left-hander a small piece of franchise history.Bumgarner will be seeking his 100th career win as a Giant. If it happens, at age 27, he would become the third-youngest Giant ever to reach the milestone.Bumgarner will be opposed by Padres right-hander Luis Perdomo, who has been unimpressive against the Giants in three meetings this season.The right-hander started the Padres 7-6 home win over the Giants on July 16, but he didnt stick around long enough to pick up the win. He was roughed up for three runs and eight hits over 4 2/3 innings.Perdomo will be backed this time around by a high-flying group that celebrated Tuesdays win by showering offensive star Ryan Schimpf and winning pitcher Jake Smith with shaving cream in a jubilant locker room.Smith recorded his first major-league win thanks to Schimpfs two-out, two-strike, three-run home run in the ninth inning.Schimpfy did all the work. All I did was throw up a zero, said Smith, who pitched a scoreless eighth inning to keep the Padres within 4-1. This was everything I dreamed of. Cheap Air Jordan Wholesale China .

Young formally announced his retirement Friday after returning to Rangers Ballpark, his baseball home for all but the last of his 13 major league seasons. SEATTLE -- After holding off a late comeback attempt, the Seattle Mariners were simply happy to have stopped their five-game losing streak.Ketel Marte had two singles and three RBI in a nine-run second inning, and Seattle beat the Los Angeles Angels 11-8 on Friday night.Its tremendous, said Mariners center fielder Leonys Martin, who walked twice and scored two runs in the second. Nine runs in one inning, its going to give you a lot of confidence. Were fighting, man. Were still alive. Keep fighting. Thats what were going to do. Fight every single game.Even after building a seven-run lead, the Mariners had a hard time putting this one away. Los Angeles scored four times in the ninth before Edwin Diaz retired star slugger Mike Trout with two on for his 12th save.We couldnt quite put the nail in the coffin, Seattle manager Scott Servais said. But we got the win. We needed a win and well build on that one.Nelson Cruz hit his 33rd homer in the eighth for the Mariners, who remained four games behind Baltimore and Detroit for the final AL playoff spot.Trout said he was fine before the game, two days after he was involved in a multi-vehicle accident on a Los Angeles freeway. He hit a three-run homer his first time up and Jefry Marte added a solo shot for the Angels, giving Brett Oberholtzer (1-1) a 4-0 lead before he took the mound.Oberholtzer allowed Guillermo Heredias RBI double in the bottom of the first, then gave up two singles and walked two batters before being pulled in the second without getting an out.Obviously, its not the start we were looking for or he was looking for, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.Jhoulys Chacin came on with the bases loaded and promptly walked in a run. The first out of the inning came when Heredia grounded into a fielders choice with the bases loaded, driving in a run. Seattle got a second run on the play on second baseman Gregorio Petits throwing error, giving the Mariners a 5-4 lead.The scoring didnt end there. Five runs in the inning came with two outs, and the bottom of Seattles order did the most damage -- the last four hitters in the lineup all reached base twice in the inning.Marte, batting ninth, lled the way and No.dddddddddddd 6 hitter Dae-Ho Lee added two singles and two RBI. The Mariners sent 14 batters to the plate, getting six hits -- all singles -- and five walks.The nine runs equaled Seattles season high for one inning. The Mariners also scored nine times in the seventh inning of a 16-13 win at San Diego on June 2.Ariel Miranda (2-1) had a rough start for Seattle, falling behind 3-0 after three batters. A walk and a single led to Trouts 26th home run before Marte connected with two outs.Miranda, however, recovered to pitch six innings without allowing another run.He hung in there, Servais said. If youd have told me after the first inning we were going to get six out of him, I probably wouldnt have bought into that one.FIRST TIME OUTJuan Graterol hit a run-scoring double in his first major league at-bat as part of the Angels ninth-inning rally. Graterol was called up earlier in the year but did not appear in a game before being sent back down. This was his first big league game after 11 years in the minors. Hes worked so hard to get here, Scioscia said. The guys in the dugout felt great for him.ROSTER MOVESBoth teams took advantage of Septembers expanded rosters and added players. The Angels recalled Graterol and LHP Cody Ege, and selected the contract of RHP Andrew Bailey from Triple-A Salt Lake. They also activated 3B Yunel Escobar from the 7-day concussion disabled list.Seattle added OF Ben Gamel, acquired from the Yankees in a trade Wednesday, to the major league roster and recalled C Jesus Sucre from Triple-A Tacoma. Gamel started in right field and batted leadoff.TROUTS CRASHBefore the game, Trout said he had no lingering pain. He declined to go into specifics about the accident but said he was lucky it wasnt more serious.UP NEXTAngels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (2-3, 4.75 ERA) will make his eighth start of the season Saturday -- and third against the Mariners. Skaggs is 0-1 with an 8.31 ERA in two starts against Seattle.Mariners: RHP Taijuan Walker (4-9, 4.19) has lost his last three decisions. ' ' '
