dmitted that he spoke with the Otttawa
SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner wanted to waste a two-strike curveball in front of Rockies cleanup hitter Justin Morneau. [url=http://www.falcontoreauthentic.com/Youth-Takkarist-McKinley-Elite-Jersey/]Takkarist McKinley Jersey[/url] . He left the ball up just enough for Morneau to get a piece of it -- the only mistake on an otherwise memorable night for the San Francisco left-hander. Bumgarner pitched a one-hitter and matched his career high of 13 strikeouts, and the Giants beat the Rockies 3-0 on Tuesday night to snap a three-game losing streak. The two-time All-Star retired the first 21 batters before Morneau doubled down the right field line to end the bid for perfection. That was the only baserunner Bumgarner (15-9) gave up. He fanned the next three hitters. "I was going to try to bounce a curveball," Bumgarner said. "I think it would have probably bounced if he (wouldnt have) hit it. Hes a good hitter and he was in there being aggressive. He happened to hit it pretty good. No regrets on throwing it." San Franciscos husky left-hander was attempting to follow Tim Lincecums no-hitter at AT&T Park on June 25 against San Diego with another milestone for a sellout crowd of 41,050 on a pristine Bay Area evening. His 103-pitch gem kept the Giants in a wild-card spot. Matt Cain is the last Giants pitcher to throw a perfect game, on June 13, 2012. "That game was probably more impressive than a lot of no-hitters, thats how well he threw tonight," San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. "You look at the strikeouts, his stuff, the command ... it was a very, very impressive evening for him." Buster Posey homered twice for San Francisco. The hapless Rockies came close to breaking up Bumgarners bid for perfection in the top of the fifth. Matt McBride was thrown out by shortstop Brandon Crawford on a close play at first base. Colorado manager Walt Weiss came out to dispute the call but did not ask for a replay after getting a signal from his dugout. Drew Stubbs hit a deep fly to left in the first, but Gregor Blanco made the catch near the wall. Colorado didnt come close to getting a hit otherwise. "Its unfortunate we had to lose," Morneau said. "It was a pitchers duel and they found a way to score some runs and we didnt." Its Bumgarners third career shutout and sixth complete game. He also became the first pitcher in franchise history with six games of 10-plus strikeouts with no walks. The Giants didnt do much offensively either until Poseys two-run home run in the sixth chased Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa. Hunter Pence drew a leadoff walk before Posey smashed a 3-1 pitch into the stands in left-centre. Posey also homered in the eighth off reliever Brooks Brown. Its the second multi-homer game of Poseys career. De La Rosa (13-9) struck out five and walked two in five-plus innings before leaving with a bruised left thumb he hurt while batting. "He was cruising," Weiss said. "Weve seen him hurt that thumb before and hes pitched through it a lot. It was hurting pretty good." TRAINERS ROOM Rockies: C Wilin Rosario missed his fourth straight game with a sore wrist. Rosario has done some light hitting in the cage, but the team has not ruled out placing him on the disabled list. Giants: Team officials were still awaiting word on backup catcher Hector Sanchez, who flew to Pittsburgh on Monday to meet with a concussion specialist. UP NEXT Rockies: LHP Franklin Morales (5-7) pitches the series finale and is making his second start since a two-inning relief appearance against Cincinnati on Aug. 17. Giants: RHP Tim Hudson (9-9) has a 4.35 ERA in 13 career starts against Colorado. [url=http://www.falcontoreauthentic.com/Youth-Sean-Harlow-Elite-Jersey/]Sean Harlow Jersey[/url] .

According to The Montreal Gazette, numerous sources are reporting that the Alouettes have approached LaPolice regarding their offensive co-ordinator position. The position will be vacated upon the expiration of interim Doug Berrys contract on Dec. 31. Berry has called the plays for the Als ever since the team fired Dan Hawkins. The teams actual offensive co-ordinator, Mike Miller, was to serve next season but made a request to have his two-year deal divided into two. His contract also expires at the end of December. LaPolice, currently working as an in-studio analyst for TSN, admitted that he spoke with the Otttawa Redblacks and Edmonton Eskimos head coaching jobs, but he would not comment on the prospect of serving as the Alouettes OC.

"I have to see where all those issues are and what everything is and all the information with those pieces, and I can make decisions," LaPolice said. "I certainly miss coaching," he added. "Television allows me to have options. I can make decisions." The RedBlacks job remains vacant, while the Eskimos job was filled by Toronto Argonauts defensive co-ordinator Chris Jones on Wednesday. LaPolice was the head coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from 2010 to 2012, compiling a record of 16 wins and 28 losses.
