SAN FRANCISCO -- Sure is hard to send these San Francisco Giants home in October. NFL Jerseys Free Shipping .Joe Panik doubled off the right-center wall in the 13th inning to drive in Brandon Crawford, and the Giants outlasted the Chicago Cubs 6-5 on Monday night in Game 3 to extend their NL Division Series.Boosted by Conor Gillaspies go-ahead triple in the eighth off Aroldis Chapman, the Giants rallied from a three-run deficit and won their 10th straight game when facing postseason elimination.San Francisco overcame Kris Bryants two-run homer off closer Sergio Romo that tied it 5-all in the ninth, and an early three-run shot by pitcher Jake Arrieta against Giants ace Madison Bumgarner.Just because were down, were not out. If were breathing, were still fighting, Panik said.The wild-card Giants forced Game 4 at their raucous ballpark, postponing a potential Cubs clinch party in the visitors clubhouse. Chicago leads the best-of-five playoff 2-1 and will send John Lackey to the mound Tuesday night opposite lefty Matt Moore.We played it hard, we played it right -- and they beat us, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.Teammates piled on Panik in celebration after he came through on the 57th pitch from Mike Montgomery, beginning his fifth inning of relief. Crawford hit a leadoff double on an 0-2 curve, bringing Panik to the plate.His big hit ended a 5-hour, 4-minute game that was only 29 minutes shy of the total time it took to play the first two series games combined last week at Wrigley Field.Gillaspie hit a two-run triple in the eighth and Crawford added an RBI single to give the Giants a 5-3 lead.Theres a sense of calmness, Panik said. Its like weve been there before.Rookie left-hander Ty Blach earned the win, escaping a 13th-inning jam when pinch-hitter David Ross bounced into a double play.Bryants tying drive hit the top of the left-field fence and bounced into the seats, silencing the orange towel-swirling sellout crowd. The slugger received a warm hug of congratulations in the dugout from Chapman, who had just given up the lead.On a night when the early focus was the marquee pitching matchup between Bumgarner and Arrieta, the bullpens decided this one hours later.Arrietas three-run drive in the second held up most of the way.The game had everything -- pitching, timely hitting on both sides. It was just a fun game to be involved with, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.Arrietas shot ended Bumgarners postseason scoreless streak at 24 innings. The left-hander had also thrown 24 straight shutout innings with the Giants facing postseason elimination, a separate string that was snapped as well.Buster Posey hit an RBI single for the Giants in the third, and Brandon Belt had a sacrifice fly in the fifth.Chapman relieved with two on in the eighth, trying for the second six-out save of his career, and Gillaspie tripled to deep right-center to put San Francisco ahead 4-3.Starting at third base for a banged-up Eduardo Nunez, Gillaspie also hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning for all the runs in Bumgarners wild-card win over the Mets last Wednesday in New York.In the bottom of the ninth, Albert Almora Jr. made a diving catch in deep right field on Poseys sinking liner and doubled up Belt at first base for an inning-ending double play that kept the Cubs in it.The Giants won the World Series in 2010, `12 and `14, and still believe they can do it again and get by Chicago given their remarkable track record with the season at stake.In 2012 against the Reds, San Francisco became the first team to come back from an 0-2 deficit and win a best-of-five series with three straight road victories. After that, the Giants came back from 3-1 down to beat the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Championship Series.I just think its part of our DNA, Belt said. We never think were out of it.CHAPMAN GIVES IT UPChapman entered in the eighth and struck out Hunter Pence with five consecutive pitches clocked at 101 or 102 mph. That brought up Gillaspie, who grounded out his first three times up. He fouled off the first offering before driving the ball beyond a diving Almora in right-center.Gillaspie has knocked in five of San Franciscos 11 runs this postseason.Give Gillaspie credit, Maddon said. He did it a couple days ago. He got an elevated fastball and hit it to the far part of the ballpark. I think it surprised a lot of people.It was the 10th extra-base hit Chapman has allowed to a left-handed batter in his career -- and the first triple.PAGAN SCRATCHEDThe only Giants player with strong numbers against Arrieta was a late scratch. Left fielder Angel Pagan got pulled from the lineup about an hour before the first pitch because of back spasms. Pagan had a .455 average (5 for 11) against Arrieta with a double and two strikeouts. Gregor Blanco replaced him.UP NEXTLackey will try to pitch the Cubs into their second straight NLCS, while Moore looks to build on his success down the stretch after the Giants acquired him at the Aug. 1 trade deadline from Tampa Bay. Cheap NFL Jerseys China . MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. Jerseys NFL Wholesale China . Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. He has a phone hearing with the department of player safety, which limits any potential suspension to five or fewer games. http://www.nfljerseyschinastore.com/ . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short.

I just kind of got into a battle, and fouled off some tough pitches and got some pitches to hit. Definitely wasnt trying to hit a home run. Just trying to put a ball in play and have a good at-bat, and it just kept going and going and going and going.Walker (4-10), who gave up six runs and six hits in just two-thirds of inning, hit Yunel Escobar on the hand with the first pitch and Calhoun sent a 3-2 pitch over the right-field wall. Trout, who entered 8 for 10 in his career against Walker, then hit his 27th homer and Pujols followed with his shot to make it 4-0.Andrelton Simmons had an RBI double and Carlos Perez added a run-scoring single to cap the inning.Thats as good as it gets, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. It was a 13-pitch at-bat and it ended in a home run. Koles a grinder. He goes up there and he got a home run in a 13-pitch at-bat, which is tremendous.Tyler Skaggs (3-3) allowed three runs on eight hits in six innings for Los Angeles, striking out seven and walking one.Franklin Gutierrez answered in the bottom of the first with a two-run homer, his 13th.Im happy our team scored all those runs, but at the same time its tough to sit there for 45 minutes and throw in the cage and then come out there, Skaggs said. Im not complaining at all whatsoever, though. The offense was great tonight.Pujols 28th homer of the season, a two-run shot in the second, gave him 588 for his career to move past Frank Robinson into ninth place on the all-time list.I dont think about that, Pujols said. I was just glad to help our team win tonight and be able to contribute, especially after a tough loss last night.Trout had opened the inning with a triple off the glove of center fielder Leonys Martin.Calhoun also had a solo shot, his 15th, in the third, and Jefry Martes added an RBI single in the fourth to make it 10-2.Nelson Cruz hit his 34th homer to open the bottom half of the inning.The three connsecutive homers by the Angels was the first time since April 13, 2014, when Trout, Pujols and Raul Ibanez did it in the first inning against the Mets. Cheap NFL Jerseys Shop. hat was the story of the game, Mariners manager Scott Servais. It was over before it really got started. Obviously, Taijuan did not have his best stuff tonight. The first pitch of the game, then the long at-bat to Calhoun that ends up with a home run, and then the home runs after.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: RHP Cam Bedrosian (2-0, 1.12 ERA), who already was on the DL (right middle finger flexor tendinitis) when the club announced earlier this week that he also was dealing with a blood clot in his upper right arm, will undergo season-ending surgery Tuesday for the clot, GM Billy Eppler said in a statement. ... 3B Escobar was taken out of the game after being hit.
