They kicked off the still-going trend of host cities winning the Grey Cup and sent Hall of Fame head coach Wally Buono to the front office a champion.NEW YORK -- Ryan Vogelsongs strategy in the dugout before the ninth inning was simple: keep quiet. Tired but eager for a shot at his first nine-inning complete game, the right-hander chose not to answer his coaches when asked how he was feeling. He was just fine, finishing off his second career complete game with a perfect ninth to lead the San Francisco Giants to a swift 5-1 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night for their second straight win after a six-game skid. "I just kind of didnt answer them because I didnt want to come out," said Vogelsong, who had a six-inning complete game against the Cubs in 2011. "It was something I wanted to do." Vogelsong (6-8) faced 28 batters, one over the limit, allowing Juan Lagares soft single leading off the sixth and Lucas Dudas 20th homer to start the eighth. In ending a five-decision losing skid, he walked one and got two double plays. Vogelsong threw 102 pitches in the game that took 2 hours, 6 minutes. Brandon Crawford had a run-scoring single, Matt Duffy an RBI single for his first big league hit and Hunter Pence added a two-run triple and RBI groundout off Jonathon Niese (5-7) for San Francisco. The Giants were coming off a horrid homestand in which they lost five of six to fall out of first place in the NL West. They improved to 30-20 on the road. "We normally play very well at home," Bochy said. "We just have a tough time scoring runs there. I dont know what to do to change it but were working on it." After giving Vogelsong no run support in five of his last six outings, the Giants got on the board in the second thanks in part to Nieses throwing error. Juan Perez led off with a double. Gregor Blanco then bounced back to Niese. The left-hander tried to nab Perez, who got caught off second, but he bounced the throw and Perez raced into third. Crawford followed with an RBI single and Pence drove in another with a grounder. "Its unfortunate, because thats a situation where I cant make a mistake, and I did," Niese said. "Just made a mistake and paid for it, costing us runs and, ultimately, the game." Pence tripled to right-centre after Crawwford tripled down the right field line and Vogelsong was hit by a pitch in the seventh. Vans Sk8-Hi Shoes For Sale. Pence was 4 for 33 coming in. Niese pitched 8-plus innings and allowed nine hits and five runs -- three earned. He hit two batters. TRAINERS ROOM Giants: Right-hander Matt Cain needs surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow. He still is not sure when he will have the operation but Bochy thinks the former ace is done for the season. Recovery is about three months. Mets: Ace Matt Harvey threw off the mound for first time since having Tommy John surgery on Oct. 22. He made 15 pitches at about 60 per cent effort. Harvey still is hoping for a possible return in late September. "Im not writing 2014 out, but theres still a lot more to go and a lot more to prove in order to be healthy enough to come back," Harvey said. UP NEXT Giants: Right-hander Jake Peavy (0-1) will make his second start for San Francisco. Peavy has lost his last 10 decisions -- nine with Boston -- but has had success at Citi Field. He is 2-0 with a 3.09 ERA against the Mets in Queens. Mets: Right-hander Jacob deGrom (5-5) has won four straight starts. According to research by the Elias Sports Bureau, he is one of four rookie pitchers since 1982 to win four consecutive starts of six innings or more while allowing no more than one run. The others are Roy Oswalt, Jered Weaver and Cain. DOUBLE BUMP The Giants promoted Duffy and outfielder Jarrett Parker from Double-A Richmond to take the roster spots of Dan Uggla and Tyler Colvin, who were designated for assignment. Duffy started at second base and singled in a run in the seventh for his first career hit. He rounded first with a big grin as Pablo Sandoval, near the on-deck circle called for the ball. "I didnt have as many nerves as I thought I would," Duffy said. RUN REVERSAL The Giants have scored 12 runs in their two wins after scoring six total in the six straight losses. 12 FIRST BASEMEN WITH 20 Duda became the 12th Mets first baseman to reach 20 homers in a season. Ike Davis, whom New York traded to Pittsburgh after giving Duda the starting role, was the most recent in 2012. ' ' '

LIBERIA, Costa Rica - Canada scored a late goal to walk away with a 1-1 draw against North Korea on Tuesday at the under-17 Womens World Cup of soccer. Cheap Nmd China . Sung Hyang Sim put North Korea ahead in the 54th minute. Canada, however, maintained pressure and tied the game late off an own goal where Kim Jong Sum put the ball just over her own line in the 86th minute. "Never give up. Never, ever give up," said Canadas head coach Bev Priestman. "And you could argue we deserved something from the first game (a 2-2 draw against Germany) and a bit of luck was on our side tonight." Canada is currently in second place in Group B while Ghana has already earned its way through to the second stage by winning its first two matches. Canada will face Ghana on Mar. 22 in its third and final Group Stage matchup. North Korea created numerous chances prior to taking the lead, but Canada created some opportunities of their own as Jessie Fleming hit the crossbar with a long-range effort in the first half. After going down a goal in the second half, they nearly came back when Gabrielle Carle had a header that also hit the bar. "They showed real resilience and its one of the things they want to be known for," said Priestman of her teams perseverance against the runners-up from two years ago. "All credit to Korea, they came at us. Tactically, they caused us some problems but there are some special girls in this team and they stood out tonight." Balenciaga Outlet . Reyes, 26, was traded from Atlanta to Toronto in July 2010 and spent the remainder of the season in the minors.

Coach Darryl Sutters team knows all about peaking for the post-season after its Stanley Cup title run two years ago, and the Kings are counting down the games until they can try it again. Anze Kopitar scored two goals in the first period, Jonathan Quick made 24 saves, and the Kings beat the Jets 4-2 Saturday night for their sixth straight victory. Trevor Lewis and Tyler Toffoli also scored for the Kings, who havent lost since March 17. Marian Gaborik and Willie Mitchell had two assists apiece as Los Angeles took a big early lead and cruised to its 14th win in 17 games. "I dont think there is any coasting goes on, period," Sutter said. "Youre just trying to refine parts of your game, very simple. You are trying to take care of your own business first. Youre not a playoff team until you clinch the playoff spot." The Kings are just a couple of wins away from clinching their fifth straight playoff trip and a first-round matchup with San Jose or Anaheim. After 4 1/2 weeks of outstanding play out of the Olympic break, theyre all but locked into third place in the Pacific Division. Los Angeles has won 13 of 16 since Sochi, with three one-goal losses between two lengthy winning streaks. Kopitars third multigoal game of the season was set up by another strong offensive game from Kings newcomer Gaborik, who had his second multipoint performance on Los Angeles top line. "We have a chance to finish very strong and prepare for the playoffs," said Gaborik, who has eight points in his past nine games with Los Angeles. "This team works well in a system. Everybody is on the same page. Everybody is trusting each other. Its like one big machine." And that machine steamrolled the Jets in the opening 20 minutes. Matt Halischuk and Blake Wheeler scored in the third period for the Jets, who hadnt visited Los Angeles since Jan. 3, 1996. Ondrej Pavelec gave up three goals in the first period before getting pulled, and Al Montoya stopped 12 shots iin the final 40 minutes. Wholesale Adidas Nmd . Winnipeg has lost four of six and 10 of 13, its playoff hopes dwindling to a faint prayer. The Jets trail eighth-place Phoenix in the Western Conference standings by nine points with seven games to go and three teams between them. The erstwhile Atlanta Thrashers finally have appeared in every NHL road arena since their move to Manitoba in 2011, but they couldnt keep up in the first period against their surging hosts. "We got taught a real good lesson in the first period about being ready to play a hard game," Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. "We were just giving up so much ice and backing up. The last two periods, we were ready to play. Theres a learning lesson for some." The Kings went ahead just 2:42 in when a sharp-angled shot somehow got past Pavelec for Lewis career-best sixth goal of the season. Lewis didnt score in his first 38 games of the season, but the grinding forward has four goals in March. Kopitar then scored when a rebound of Gaboriks shot banked off his skate and in for the Slovenian centres 23rd goal. Gaboriks shot sent Winnipeg defenceman Mark Stuarts stick flying into Pavelecs chest. Kopitar scored again late in the period, muscling past the Winnipeg defence for a rebound backhand. "There is no explanation," Wheeler said of the Jets early effort. "They came out with the kind of energy you need to start a hockey game. We didnt. Thats what happens. After the opening period, we figured it out a little bit." After a scoreless second period, Halischuk scored his first goal since Dec. 14 from right in front of Quick, banging home Evander Kanes pass from below the goal line in the corner. Quick made an amazing facedown save with 1 minute to play, sticking his right leg into midair to block a long Winnipeg shot. NOTES: The Kings have outscored their opponents 19-11 during their winning streak. ... Los Angeles has 44 victories, two shy of the regular-season club record with seven games to go. ... Mitchell had his first multipoint game since April 5, 2012. The stay-at-home defenceman missed all of last season with injuries, and he had seven points in his first 69 games this season. ' ' '
