Air Max 90 Femme Rose Et Noir . Simple as that. No matter what it takes a€” or how long.Even 18 innings.On and on and on the Giants and Nationals played Saturday, from afternoon until just past midnight, when Belts homer off Tanner Roark leading off the 18th lifted San Francisco to its 10th consecutive post-season victory, edging Washington 2-1 for a 2-0 lead in their NL Division Series.Thats how we do it. On paper, it might not be the flashiest thing, compared to a lot of teams. But I like this group against anybody in baseball, said Tim Hudson, who started for the Giants and went 7 1-3 innings, leaving hours before the game ended. Whod have thought wed have came here and won the first two? Everybody in America probably didnt think we had a shot. But everybody in this locker room knew that we did.The teams tied the mark for most innings in a post-season game and set a time record at 6 hours, 23 minutes. They combined to use 17 pitchers and 24 position players.After a while, Giants rookie Joe Panik said, every inning just kind of ran into the next.Said Craig Stammen, one of eight relievers used by the Nationals after starter Jordan Zimmerman was yanked while ahead 1-0 with two outs in the ninth after walking Panik: The two worst things in baseball are boredom and frustration, and we were battling both of those tonight.Somehow, Washington was shut out for 15 innings after Anthony Rendons RBI single in the third.The Giants can close out the best-of-five NLDS at home Monday in Game 3, with Madison Bumgarner a€” who tossed a shutout against Pittsburgh in the wild-card game a€” facing Doug Fister.Im sure its going to be a quiet flight, said Zimmermann, who threw a no-hitter in the regular-season finale, then allowed only three singles Saturday.Could be quite a sudden end to 2014 for the Nationals, who won the NL East and led the league with 96 wins. But after a pair of one-run losses, theyre looking as if theyre the latest team that cant figure out how to get past San Francisco.Down to their final out Saturday, the Giants tied it in the ninth on Pablo Sandovals RBI double off Drew Storen a€” the closer who blew a two-out ninth-inning lead in Game 5 of the 2012 NLDS against St. Louis.Petit entered in the 12th and threw six scoreless innings, allowing one hit and striking out seven, to earn the win.I was trying to get as much as I could out of him, manager Bruce Bochy said.Hunter Strickland got the save with a scoreless 18th.By then, the temperature was in the low 50s; the Nationals used a hot-air blower in their dugout.Roark came on in the 17th. An inning later, he threw a 94 mph fastball on a full count to Belt, who missed 96 games this season because of a broken thumb and concussion and was 0 for 6 Saturday until that at-bat. When he drove the ball into the second deck beyond right field, Belt dropped his bat and admired the shot as the Nationals Park crowd fell silent. When Belt got to the dugout, teammates slapped him on his head.I just wanted to get on base for the guys behind me a€” Get em on, get em over and get em in. Fortunately, I put a good enough swing on it, Belt said.Only one other post-season game in baseball history lasted 18 innings a€” when the Astros beat the Braves in a 2005 NLDS game that Hudson started for Atlanta. That one held the previous record for most time, at 5:50.Bochys Giants, who won the 2010 and 2012 World Series, were built to win this sort of marathon.They are relentless. They dont quit, Bochy said. We had our hands full tonight.In sum, San Francisco stays calm and collected. More than could be said for Washington, which had three of its best hitters a€” Denard Span, Adam LaRoche and Bryce Harper a€” go a combined 0 for 21, and had manager Matt Williams and second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera ejected in the 10th after arguing a called third strike.Cabrera slammed his bat and helmet to the ground, then began yelling at home umpire Vic Carapazza, getting right in his face. That got Cabrera tossed. Williams pushed his player out of the way and also got kicked out. Fans began booing ball-and-strike calls; they cheered when a foul ball ricocheted off the screen behind the plate and hit Carapazza in the 18th.Williams was asked afterward about the decision to lift Zimmermann, who retired 20 batters in a row until walking Panik a€” after the rookie launched a deep fly that barely sailed foul.Why did we decide to take him out? Because if he got in trouble in the ninth or got a baserunner, we were going to bring our closer in, Williams said. That is what we have done all year.Storen gave up a single to 2012 NL MVP Buster Posey, then the double to Sandoval that made it 1-all. Posey tried to score on the play, but shortstop Ian Desmonds one-hop relay was in time for catcher Wilson Ramos to tag Posey. After a 2 1/2-minute delay when Bochy asked for a replay review, Posey was ruled out. Air Max Classic BW . JOHNS, N. Air Max 90 Ultra Br Jaune . -- Cole De Vries had a couple of key strikeouts during what could have been the inning that doomed him to defeat against the Kansas City Royals, allowing him to escape further damage and keep the game tied up.MINNEAPOLIS -- After winning two World Series titles with the Boston Red Sox, Terry Francona knows a thing or two about October baseball. Getting the Cleveland Indians on the cusp of a playoff appearance in his first year with the team just makes it that much sweeter. The Indians pulled into a tie atop the AL wild card standings Friday night, pounding out 17 hits in a 12-6 romp over the Minnesota Twins. "Its everything you hope for when you go to spring training," Francona said. "You cant let yourself get ahead, but the fact that everybodys tired and we cant wait to get back here tomorrow, thats what were here for." With the win and Tampa Bays loss at Toronto, the Indians moved into a tie with the Rays for the two AL wild cards, one game ahead of Texas, which beat Los Angeles. Cleveland has won eight straight and 13 of 15, taking advantage of a schedule that ends with 10 games against Houston, the Chicago White Sox and the Twins, the three worst teams in the AL this season. Last year the Indians were one of those teams, winning just 68 games and entering the year with low expectations. But after improving to 90-70 on Friday night, Francona wasnt in the mood to look back on the season just yet. "Theres time to reminisce when the seasons over. Weve got to show up in about 10 hours and try to get to 91," Francona said. "Im thrilled that were playing for what were playing for." Carlos Santana and Asdrubal Cabrera both had two doubles and Jason Kipnis was a homer short of the cycle as the Indians jumped out to a 7-0 lead and knocked out Twins starter Pedro Hernandez (3-3) in the second inning. "He just had a bad night," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said of his rookie left-hander. "They were all over him right from the get-go. Kind of non-stop." By the time the second inning was over, the Indians had four doubles and a triple, and the first seven hitters in their batting order had at least one hit. "I think you just have to give credit to our lineup tonight," said Indians centre fielder Drew Stubbs, who went 2 for 4 with a two-run homer in the ninth inning. "We came out and when we got good pitches to hit we put good swings on them and gave ourselves a pretty good cushion." Ryan Raburn singled in two runs in the second, and Mike Aviles added a two-run single in the fiifth for the Indians, who went 7 for 12 with runners in scoring position. Air Max 90 Hyperfuse Noir. . Indians starter Corey Kluber (11-5) managed to win his fifth straight decision. He started the game with three scoreless innings, but then allowed 10 of the next 16 hitters to reach and was knocked out with one out in the sixth. Kluber gave up six earned runs and 10 hits, but walked only one and struck out five. "I felt like mechanically I was there," Kluber said. "I felt good physically. I think the last couple of innings I just fell behind a couple guys and got a couple balls up." The Twins scratched back thanks to Pedro Florimons two-run homer in the fifth, and after Alex Presley dumped a two-run single into left field with two outs in the sixth, the Twins had climbed within 9-6. Five relievers then combined to shut out the Twins over the final 3 2-3 innings. Cleveland right-hander Justin Masterson threw a scoreless eighth as he works his way back from a strained left oblique that sidelined him for three weeks. The Indians tacked on three more runs in the last two innings, courtesy of an RBI double by Kipnis and Stubbs 10th homer of the season, a two-run blast to left that made him the 10th Indian to reach double figures in home runs this year. "The way the wind was shifting the ball started carrying," Francona said. "They get to 9-6 and you dont want to be in a situation where a mistake can cost you a game. The guys kept grinding and thats good." In the end, Francona was left deciding how to spend the few hours between the end of Fridays 3 1-2 hour marathon and the start of Saturdays matinee. "I just want to keep playing. I dont want to go home. I dont care where we play, when we play, I just want to keep playing," he said. "I ought to just sit here and stay in my uni because Im probably not going to sleep a heck of a lot." NOTES: With their 6-5 victory over Minnesota on Thursday, the Indians improved their record in one-run games to 30-17, the best mark in the major leagues. . Twins C Josmil Pinto left the game after being hit on the right hand with a pitch in the fourth inning. Precautionary X-rays were negative and hes considered day-to-day with a bruised hand. . The Indians will send LHP Scott Kazmir (9-9) to the mound against Minnesota RHP Cole De Vries (0-1) on Saturday.
