NEW YORK -- The last time the San Francisco Giants started Madison Bumgarner in an American League ballpark they let him bat. Cheap Air Max 97 All Blue .On June 30, the Giants forfeited their designated hitter and Bumgarner went 1-for-4 in a 12-6 win at Oakland.The game-time temperature in Oakland when Bumgarner batted was 66 degrees, but when the Giants take the field at Yankee Stadium on Friday night for the opener of their three-game series against the New York Yankees, the weather is projected to be significantly hotter.I think were seeing three right-handers, San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy told reporters. Not that (Bumgarner) is a matchups guy. But with our situation now, Ill probably DH one of our left-handed hitters. Our bench is deeper now. Plus, it could be really hot. We want to keep him off the field.Regardless of the temperature, the Giants would like to get on a hot streak again.They entered the All-Star break with a 57-33 record but have dropped five straight, equaling a season worst set April 17-21 During the slump, San Francisco starting pitchers have an 8.14 ERA, the offense has produced a .237 average (41-for-173) while also going 6-for-41 with runners in scoring position.The offense actually improved Wednesday when the Giants fell behind by eight runs before losing 11-7. San Franciscos average on this trip climbed 40 points after five players had multi-hit games.Those first games in San Diego and yesterday, our offense wasnt there yet, catcher Trevor Brown told reporters. Even though we lost tonight, we put up seven runs. Thats definitely some good momentum. Everybody in the lineup who started got a hit, which is nice.The comeback attempt was needed because Matt Cain lasted 2 1/3 innings and allowed five runs.The Giants hope Bumgarner will resemble the pitcher who struck out 14 in a one-hitter against Arizona on July 10 and not the pitcher who allowed four runs and seven hits during six innings in last Fridays loss at San Diego.Weve got Bum on the mound, right? Giants right fielder Mac Williamson told reporters. I think were always confident when hes out there.Bumgarner will face the Yankees for the first time but has matched up with a few of their hitters. New Yorks switch hitters and right-handed bats have done well against him, but its left-handed bats have not.Starlin Castro is 11-for-26 against Bumgarner while switch-hitters Carlos Beltran and Chase Headley are 2-for-6 and 10-for-33, respectively. Left-handed hitters Brian McCann and Didi Gregorius are 1-for-9 and 1-for-8, respectively.The Yankees had a four-game winning streak stopped with Thursdays 4-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. New York had four hits and dropped to 4-3 on its 10-game homestand.I think you have to look at you took three out of four from a good Baltimore team and you have to move on, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. San Franciscos going to be no easy task. You cant have a letdown because you lost today. You have to get yourself up and know youre facing a really good pitcher tomorrow.Masahiro Tanaka will start on regular rest, which he has struggled with this season. Tanaka is 1-2 with a 5.33 ERA in eight starts with regular rest, which is why speculation persisted that Chad Green would start when the Yankees scratched him from his Triple-A start Tuesday and recalled him Thursday.Tanaka is 6-0 with a 1.70 ERA in 12 starts on extended rest. The latest instance was Sunday when he allowed one run and three hits in six innings during a 3-1 win over the Boston Red Sox.I dont want to talk for them, but more rest means more time to sort of get the inflammation out of the body, Tanaka said. But the bottom line for me is to basically go out there and try to shut the opponent down regardless of the number of off days you have in between starts.Long before interleague play began in 1997, the teams met in the World Series in 1921, 1922, 1923, 1936, 1937, 1951 and 1962. The Giants won the first two World Series against the Yankees before losing the next five.During the regular season, the Yankees have won five of nine meetings. The Yankees won four of those games in New York in 2002 and 2013 and the Giants took two of three at home in 2007.

Cheap Air Max 97 All Red . One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo.Von Miller says Denver Broncos defensive unity can help them stop Carolina quarterback Cam Newton in Super Bowl 50. 10 stars not called Cam or Peyton We look at the Super Bowl stars going under the radar Preparations are well underway for Sundays San Francisco showpiece and while Peyton Mannings battle with Newton has dominated much of the build-up, there is an equal focus on what is likely to come down to a simple offense v defense battle.The Broncos smothered New Englands Tom Brady in the AFC Championship game and the NFLs top-rated defense will have to be at it again to stop Newton. How to watch Super Bowl 50 Follow all the build-up with us on Sky Sports Linebacker Miller is well aware of the threat he and his teammates face as they target victory and knows stopping Newton is key to any hopes of victory.Cam is a great player. Super tough player to take down, he said at media day.It is tough. He is athletic, 66, 270 pounds, 4.4 (40-yard dash). He is tough. From a physical standpoint, he is smart, strong and athletic. You put all of those together and it is extremely tough to take him down. With ball in hand or across the floor, the Broncos know the threat posed by Cam Newton He controls that whole offense. As Cam goes, their offense goes. We can only stick to our game plan, play the same type of defense we have been playing all year. If we can do that we will be alright.Broncos defense has won praise of the course of the season but Miller, who sacked Brady 2.5 times in the Broncos victory oover the Patriots, insists simple teamwork has been the key. Cheap Air Max 97 Black. We just have to play our game, he added. Mannings milestones Looking back at some of Peytons finest moments I think what makes this defense so close is that we spend a lot of time together. It is like a college atmosphere in our locker room. It is not a seven in the morning to 5pm type of environment. We spend a lot of time with each other. I think that is the glue that makes this team go.There really isnt a magic call or magic play. We just have to go out there and want it more than they want it.Millers thoughts were echoed by outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware, who pinpoints Newton as key to the Panthers stunning season Theyre an awesome team. Thats why theyre here in the Super Bowl right now, said Ware.17-1, theyve only lost one game. The quarterback they have is one of one. You cant find a quarterback that can sit back in the pocket and throw the ball but also can run just like a running back. (They) have a lot of trick plays, a lot of other great players on their team, especially their defense too.I am always predicated on being the best defense. Their defense is good also, so they are good all the way around. You have to prepare well for that team.I think the defense is always up for the challenge. Cam (Newton) is a dynamic guy where he runs the ball really well. He keeps the chains moving and if there is nobody open, he can run very, very effectively. You cant change how we play. We have to do what we do and do what weve been doing effectively. Also See: Peytons moments Ten stars not called Cam or Peyton Memorable Super Bowls How to watch Super Bowl 50 ' ' '
