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 Crawford tripled down the right field line and Vogelsong was hit by a pitch in the seventh. 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.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Little League rules impose a limit of 85 pitches, a number that can make it tough to throw a no-hitter. Grant Holman of Chula Vista, Calif., didnt have any problems Friday. Holman struck out 13 and became the first player to toss a no-hitter in the Little League World Series since the rule was put in place in 2007, leading Chula Vista into the second round with a 3-0 victory over Grosse Pointe, Mich. With his seven innings of work, Holman also became the first pitcher since 1979 to throw an extra-inning no-hitter in the LLWS. Standing 6-foot-4 and weighing 166 pounds, the 13-year-old Holman outdueled Grosse Pointes Chad Lorkowski -- another stout young pitcher at 6-3 and 219 pounds. The 12-year-old Lorkowski struck out 12 in six innings but exhausted his 85-pitch allotment. He walked two batters and hit another. Grosse Pointe manager Tom Mazzola praised both pitchers. "That kid throws hard," Mazzola said about Holman. "Hes 6-foot-4, he has a nice curveball and he hits his spots. We havent quite faced a pitcher like that, but the same goes for our big fella. Chad for his size and weight is remarkable." Each pitcher was clocked throwing fastballs in the low-to-mid 70s. "He was going out there. He was dealing," Chula Vista coach Rick Tibbett said about Lorkowski. "And we knew they had to bring someone else in and we knew we were going to hit him." Chula Vista ended a scoreless tie against Grosse Pointe reliever Antonio Moceri with three runs in the top of the seventh. Micah Pietila-Wiggs drove in the third run with the fourth hit of the inning and his second hit of the game. Holman narrowly missed a perfect game with only one walk and got some help from his defence to enter the seventh with eight pitches to spare before he reached the limit. Holman said one of his teammates "accidentally" said something about his no-hit bid in the dugout. "And I walked the next batter," the pitcher said with a laugh. On Sunday, Chula Vista will face Newark, Del., which beat Urbandale, Iowa, 6-3. Grossee Pointe will take on Urbandale on Saturday in the losers bracket.dddddddddddd In the international bracket, Tokyo beat Brno, Czech Republic, 7-3, and Taoyuan, Taiwan, routed Ottawa, Ontario, 10-2. Taiwan and Japan will face each other Sunday, while the Canadians will take on the Czechs on Saturday. DELAWARE 6, IOWA 3 Joseph Davis allowed one hit in 4 2-3 innings and Newark held on to win after scoring five times in the first inning. The Mid-Atlantic champions had six hits in the first, including for straight by Nathan Hardcastle, Davis, Eric Ludman and Jack Hardcastle. Jared Owens added a two-run single and Ryan Miller followed with a run-scoring triple. Brady Roberts and Sam Petrillo had Iowas only two hits. Roberts drove in Brock Heinen in the first. Iowa scored its other runs on a passed ball in the second and a wild pitch in the seventh. Davis and Nathan Hardcastle, who pitched 1 1-3 innings in relief, each had two hits for Newark. JAPAN 7, CZECH REPUBLIC 3 Kazuki Ishida hit a two-run homer and Kyousuke Kobayashi drove in a pair of runs with a double to lead Tokyo. Shou Miyao singled home a run in the first and Kobayashi added his double later in the inning. The Japanese champions made it 6-0 in the second on Ishidas homer and an RBI double by Shunpei Takagi. Six pitchers combined on a two-hitter for Japan in the first LLWS game for a team from the Czech Republic. The Czechs broke through in the third on Daniel Stoudeks two-run homer. The Europe and Africa champions cut it to 6-3 in the top of the fifth on a pair of errors by Japan before Ryusei Hirookas RBI single in the bottom half provided the final margin. TAIWAN 10, CANADA 2 Chou Shih-Che, Lan Huai-Chien and Yeh Tung-Jua homered to lead Taiwan. Chou had a three-run shot in the first inning, Lan added a two-run homer in the second to make it 5-0 and Yeh had a two-run homer in the fourth. Yeh allowed just one hit in three innings -- retiring the first eight hitters of the game -- to get the win. He struck out four and didnt walk a batter. Angus Adams homered in the fourth for the Canadians. Trebuie să fii logat sau înregistrat pentru a vedea acest link. Trebuie să fii logat sau înregistrat pentru a vedea acest link.
