ATLANTA -- The San Francisco Giants put together quite a mind-boggling statistic in their first three-game sweep at Turner Field. http://www.airforcescarpe.it/air-force-one-fluorescente-verdi-high-x-girl-donne-nike-scarpe-321813-331.html . San Francisco did not have a hit with a runner in scoring position, but still won three straight over the Atlanta Braves. Credit belongs to strong pitching and seven home runs. Brandon Crawford hit two home runs and Madison Bumgarner helped the Giants beat Atlanta 4-1 Sunday, handing the Braves their sixth straight loss. The Giants were 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position on Sunday and 0-for-7 in the series. Still, the NL West leaders left town with a five-game winning streak. "Thats incredible," manager Bruce Bochy said. "What a job our pitching did here. ... The long ball, thats what won it for us because we couldnt get a hit. They had great pitching as well." It was San Franciscos first sweep in Atlanta since 1988 -- long before Turner Field opened in 1997 and before Bumgarner was born in 1989. "Thats a big series for us," Bumgarner said. The Braves skid is their longest skid since an eight-game slide in May 2012. Atlanta, which leads the NL East, was held to one run in each of the losses to San Francisco. "Weve been struggling," said Dan Uggla, who was 0 for 4 and is hitting .190. "Weve got to turn the corner and just turn this thing around. Like, now." Bumgarner (3-3) allowed one unearned run and three hits in six innings, striking out nine. Improved control allowed Bumgarner earn his first win since April 11. He walked only one batter after issuing a combined eight passes in his last three starts. "I still felt like I got behind a lot of times when I wanted to get ahead, but its a big step forward," Bumgarner said. Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his first save. Closer Sergio Romo was rested after recording saves in two straight games. Crawford gave the Giants a 2-1 lead with his homer off Alex Wood (2-5) in the fourth. Crawford hit a two-run shot off Jordan Walden in the eighth for his first career multihomer game. He began the day with only one homer this season. Wood lost his fourth straight start, again receiving almost no run support. The one run scored by Atlanta on Sunday is the only offence Wood has received in that span, which included back-to-back 1-0 losses. The left-hander has a 3.00 ERA after allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk in five innings. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez, who hinted he may tweak his slumping lineup, said an offensive turnaround is coming. "Somebodys going to have to pay for it," Gonzalez said. "Sooner or later somebodys going to come in here and were going to score 10 runs a game for two or three weeks. Thats my mindset Ive got going on right now." The Giants only runs in their first two wins of the series came on five solo homers. They found another way to score in the first when Hunter Pence hit a one-out double, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on Buster Poseys grounder to first base. Atlantas Evan Gattis was called for catchers interference on Poseys grounder, and the umpires initially ruled Posey was safe at first and Pence had to return to third base. Bochy took advantage of Rule 6.08c, which allows a manager to take the live play instead of the interference ruling. Jason Heyward hit a sacrifice fly in the Atlanta third. The Giants reclaimed the lead on Crawfords homer to right-centre with two outs in the fourth. NOTES: Bumgarner has allowed only one earned run in winning three straight starts against the Braves, including two wins in 2013. ... Gonzalez said SS Andrelton Simmons was held out for personal reasons and is expected to start on Monday. ... Braves RHP Gavin Floyd (elbow surgery) came off the 15-day DL and will start on Tuesday against St. Louis as RHP Ervin Santana has his scheduled start skipped due to swelling below his right thumb. Gonzalez said he expects Santana to start on Saturday against the Cubs. ... The Giants open a series at Pittsburgh on Monday as RHP Matt Cain starts. ... The Braves homestand continues on Monday night with RHP Aaron Harang facing Cardinals RHP Shelby Miller. http://www.airforcescarpe.it/lunar-force-one-nike-uomo-basse-bianche-bianche-ice-blu-scarpe-654256-100.html . Rocque and her Edmonton rink stole two points in the eighth end and hit out for the win after South Korea scored a single in the ninth. "Honestly, this is unexplainable," Rocque said. http://www.airforcescarpe.it/donne-regio-blu-nike-air-force-one-high-x-girl-scarpe-321813-411.html . -- Colorado Avalanche forward P.RALEIGH, N.C. -- After being outscored 10-2 in the first two games of a five-game road trip, the Phoenix Coyotes had reason to wish they could pack their bags and return to Arizona. "It was a morgue around here -- nobody was happy, everybody was miserable," said Rob Klinkhammer. The mood on the team has certainly changed in the course of three games over five days. Klinkhammer scored two goals Sunday, including the game-winner 22 seconds into the third period, to help the Coyotes pick up a 5-3 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday. Shane Doan, Mikkel Boedker and Lauri Korpikoski had Phoenixs other goals. Mike Smith made 31 saves for the Coyotes, who closed a five-game road trip by winning in Detroit, Philadelphia and Carolina. "It turns out to be a great road trip," Klinkhammer said. Eric Staal, Riley Nash and Jeff Skinner scored for the Hurricanes. Cam Ward made nine saves after coming on with 10:08 left in the second period to replace starting netminder Anton Khudobin. Khudobin suffered a lower-body injury when he skated out to play the puck. Ward allowed three of Phoenixs goals. "A few guys came ready to play and battle and play their game, but we had too many passengers tonight," said Carolina coach Kirk Muller. "We had some of our top guys that just didnt bring their A game tonight." With the score tied at 3 at the start of the third period, Carolinas Staal gambled in the offensive zone. He couldnt corral the puck, instead allowing Klinkhammer to skate forward on a 2-on-1. Klinkhammer decided not to pass, snapping the puck past Wards glove. "Thats a tough pass to make on your off side there, so I just came down and shot it, and it went in," Klinkhammer said. Doan then gave the Coyotes an insurance goal with 12:49 left when he scored on the power play. Doan also had an assist for his first two points of the year. "At some point, you have to start helping," DDoan said. http://www.airforcescarpe.it/uomo-donne-nike-air-force-1-scarpe-hi-supreme-le-nere-oro-386152-001.html. "The last few games, Ive been playing better and been on the ice for goals for and opportunities, but nothing was going in. I fortunately got one tonight to get off the schneid and get going out there." The relatively high-scoring game broke the mould of Phoenixs other victories -- the Coyotes had allowed four goals in their first three wins compared to 10 goals allowed in their two losses. Phoenix had a strong start, outshooting Carolina 8-1 in the first 12 minutes and scoring the first goal. With Carolinas Alexander Semin in the penalty box for hooking, the Coyotes Derek Morris took a shot that hit the post. Boedker cleaned up the rebound, taking advantage of the fact Khudobin was out of position. The Hurricanes tied the score when a Phoenix clearing attempt bounced to Staal, who was in front of the net. Staal backhanded the puck past Smith. Both teams scored twice in the second period. Nash started things off for the Hurricanes when he deflected a Ryan Murphy shot from the point above Smiths glove. The Coyotes then had consecutive goals to take a 3-2 lead. First, Klinkhammer finished a scrum in the crease by poking the puck through Khudobins pads. After Khudobins injury, Korpikoski finished a nice passing play with Mike Ribeiro by one-timing the puck past Ward. The Hurricanes tied the score at 3 with less than 1 minute left in the second period when Skinner snapped a sharp-angle shot that went off Smiths helmet and into the net for a power-play goal. Up until that point, Phoenix had killed off Carolinas first six power plays, including 1:56 of a two-minute advantage earlier in the second. "We dont score on the 5-on-3, and it just dropped the whole life out of our team," Muller said. Tuomo Ruutu played in his first game of the season for the Hurricanes after missing the teams first five games with a lower-body injury. Muller had no update on Khudobins status other than hed undergo an MRI on Monday.
