49ers Roll and Giants get ready to Party !


 

 

 

MICHAEL CRABTREE SCORED TWO TOUCHDOWNS AS THE NINERS BEAT ARIZONA 24-3

 

 

(AP) - The San Francisco 49ers cruised to a 24-3
road victory over the Arizona Cardinals last night and took firm
control of the NFC West at the halfway mark of their season.
     Alex Smith threw touchdown passes to Michael Crabtree and Randy
Moss to help the Niners build a 24-0 lead.
     Smith connected on 18 of 19 passes. That's an NFL record for
most completed passes with just one incompletion.
     The Niners defense lived up to its No. 1 ranking, holding
Arizona to just seven yards on the ground. And they didn't yield a
TD for the fourth time in five games.
     The Cardinals' fourth straight loss after a 4-0 start drops them
two games behind 6-2 San Francisco in the division race.
 

(AP) - For the second time in three years, San
Francisco city officials are gearing up for a ticker-tape parade to
celebrate the Giants' World Series victory.
     Plans for the Wednesday event were being made as the city
cleaned up after a rowdy World Series celebration turned violent in
some neighborhoods and police arrested three dozen people.
     City Hall says the parade will take a slightly different route
from the one that followed the Giants' 2010 championship. Instead
of the financial district, the parade will start at the foot of
Market Street.
     Mayor's Office spokesman Francis Tsang said the new route is
safer and affords better views than the previous route.

 

CHICO STATE MEN'S SOCCER GETS READY FOR POST-SEASON

CHICO – On the heels of its third consecutive North Division title, the Chico State men’s soccer team has earned the No. 2 seed in this weekend’s California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Tournament. And for the fourth time since 2008, the Wildcats’ first round opponent will be Cal State Dominguez Hills, this season’s host school of the four-team tourney. The ’Cats and the No. 3 seed Toros will take the pitch for their first round match Friday at 7 p.m. at Toro Stadium in Carson.

Chico State finished the regular season with a 9-2-5 overall record, using a 12-match unbeaten streak to grab the top spot in the North Division with an 8-1-5 mark and reach the postseason for the fourth time in Head Coach Felipe Restrepo’s five years at the helm. The Wildcats are currently the No. 4 ranked team – and the top CCAA school – in the NCAA West Region rankings.

Cal State Dominguez Hills heads into the tournament 10-6-1 on the year and ranked No. 6 in the West Region. The Toros finished second to Cal State L.A. in the CCAA South Division standings with a 10-5-0 conference mark.

The Toros beat Chico State in the only regular season meeting between the two teams. Dominguez Hills topped the Wildcats 3-1 Sept. 9 at University Soccer Stadium. The Toros also hold a 12-9-1 advantage in the all-time series with Chico State.

The Wildcats are 1-1-1 against Dominguez Hills in their three CCAA Tournament matchups. The two teams tied 1-1 in the 2008 semifinals, with the Toros advancing by winning a 5-3 shootout. Dominguez Hills downed Chico State 3-0 in the 2010 semis, but last season the ’Cats returned the favor, knocking off the Toros 3-0 to advance to the CCAA Tournament championship match.

The tournament’s other first round men’s match features No. 1 seed Cal State L.A. (ranked 5th in the West) against No. 4 Cal State Stanislaus (currently 8th in the West Region rankings) Friday at 4:30 p.m. The Golden Eagles, last year’s CCAA Tournament champion, finished the regular season 11-3-3 overall and 10-2-3 in conference to capture the South Division crown; Stanislaus is 9-4-3 on the season and finished second to Chico State in the North Division with a 7-4-3 conference mark.

In the opening round of the CCAA Women’s Soccer Championship Tournament, No. 1 seed Sonoma State (15-2-1, 11-2-1 CCAA) takes on No. 4 Cal Poly Pomona (10-4-3, 8-4-3 CCAA) Friday at 11:00 a.m., with No. 2 Cal State Stanislaus (15-3-0, 11-3-0 CCAA) squares off against No. 3 UC San Diego (13-2-2, 11-2-2 CCAA).
    

GIANTS WIN WORLD SERIES !!!


 

For the second time in three years the San Francisco Giants are baseball's best team. The Giants completed one of the most amazing post-season turn-arounds by sweeping the Detroit Tigers 4-0 with a 4-3 win in 10 innings on Sunday night. 

 

The Giants win their 7th World Championship in franchise history after memorable comebacks in both the National League Divisional Playoff against Cincinnati and in the National League Championship Series against St. Louis.

 

Game 4 started with the Giants jumping out in front 1-0 on a Brandon Belt RBI triple, but Triple-Crown winner Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer to give the Tigers a 2-1 lead. The Giants would strike right back in the 6th as Buster Posey, hitting only .196 in the post-season would hit a hanging change-up down the left field line for a two-run homer......

 

 

After Delmon Young homered in the bottom of the 6th to tie the game at 3-3. Both teams turned the game over to their bullpens. In the 10th, Ryan Theriot led off with a single to right. After being sacrificed into scoring position......Marco Scutaro with two outs would stride to the plate. And, just like he has all season long as a Giant he would come up with the World Series game-winning hit.....

 

 

Bruce Bochy would bring in Sergio Romo. And, Romo would strike out the first two Tiger hitters in the 10th...bringing up Cabrera. After throwing him five straight sliders, the count was 2-2 and the Giants were one strike away from the 2012 World Series Title....

 

 

For the Giants it was an amazing run of dominance after falling behind 3-to-1 in the NLCS against the Cardinals.

Hunter Pence, the mid-season acquisition and spiritual leader for the Giants says there was no-die in San Francisco....

 

 

The ace of the Giants staff in the post-season was Ryan Vogelsong who turned in great start, after great start for the entire post-season run. The journeyman says it is a dream come true....

 

 

Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro was nails for the entire post-season. He says winning a World Series title is the goal of every big leaguer.....

 

 

Giants manager Bruce Bochy says he couldn't be more proud of a group of players.....

 

 

Giants pitcher Barry Zito was a target for Giants fans for several seasons. After signing a 126 million dollar contract, Zito had not lived up to expectations. But his 2012 campaign was filled with clutch performances and great efforts that were signatures on the Giants 2012 story. He says failing for so many years taught him a lot making this journey so very sweet......

 

 

Former Giants great Will Clark says the 2012 San Francisco Giants were the definition of a true team...

 

 

The Giants World Series Championship parade will start on Halloween at 11am in San Francisco. The Giants win their second title in three years and their 7th in the 129 year history of the franchise.

Giants and Vogelsong get ready for Game 3


 

 

(AP) - The third game of the World Series will be
played tonight in Detroit and the American League Champion
Tigers need a win, badly. They dropped the first two games to the
Giants in San Francisco, losing 8-3 on Wednesday and 2-0 on 
Thursday.
     The star in game 2 was starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner who
pitched two-hit ball over seven innings. The bullpen took over and
kept the Tigers in line.
     Losing pitcher Doug Fister had a fine outing as well as the game
was scoreless through six and a half innings. The Giants scored
their first run in the home-half of the seventh on a bases loaded
double play. The game's final run came the next inning on a sac
fly.
     The game 3 pitching will have midseason acquisition Anibal
Sanchez starting for the Tigers and Ryan Vogelsong for San
Francisco. The temperature in the Motor City is expected to be in
the low-to-mid 40s.
     San Francisco is getting tremendous post season pitching as the
starters have allowed two runs in 33 innings over the last five
games, a 0.55 ERA, with 30 strikeouts and six walks.
     Of the 52 teams to take a 2-0 lead in the World Series, 41 have
gone on to win the title. That includes 14 of the last 15 teams
with that advantage.
     That said, the Giants will be anything but overconfident as in
the National League Divisional playoff they rallied back from an
0-2 deficit to eliminate the Reds in five games with three straight
wins.

Giants take commanding 2-0 Series lead


 

(AP) - The San Francisco Giants are halfway to a
World Series title after shutting down the Detroit Tigers 2-0 for a
two games-to-none series lead.
     Madison Bumgarner outdueled Detroit's Doug Fister in a classic
pitchers' duel. Bumgarner and two relievers combined on a two-hit
shutout. Bumgarner struck out eight in his seven innings. Santiago
Casilla (kah-SEE'-yuh) and Sergio Romo finished the gem.
     The Tigers were shut out just twice in the 162-game regular
season. They now have been blanked twice in the postseason.
     In their opening game win, the Giants used three homers by Pablo
Sandoval to bash the Tigers. In Game 2, the Giants used small ball
to win their fifth straight postseason game.
     They broke a scoreless tie with a run in the seventh inning
without an RBI. Hunter Pence scored on a double-play groundout by
Brandon Crawford. The Giants added an insurance run in the eighth
without a hit, scoring on a Pence sacrifice fly.
     Fourteen of the last 15 teams that have won the first two games
have gone onto win the World Series.
     Today is a travel day. The series resumes Saturday night in
Detroit. The Giants send out 14-game winner Ryan Vogelsong against
Anibel Sanchez.

Panda Makes History Giants win Game 1


 

 

SANDOVAL HITS A 95 MPH FASTBALL OFF OF VERLANDER TO DEAD CENTER-HOME RUN NUMBER 1

 

 

SANDOVAL TAKES VERLANDER'S 94 MPH FASTBALL TO DEEP LEFT-HOME RUN NUMBER 2

 

 

SANDOVAL HAMMERS A CURVEBALL TO DEAD CENTER-HOME RUN NUMBER 3

 

Move over Babe, now there is something meatier.

In a performance that will be remembered for as long as the great game of baseball is played, Pablo Sandoval hit three home runs in his first three at-bats of this 2012 World Series leading the Giants to an 8-3 win in Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night.

 

LISTEN TO HOW GIANTS BROADCASTERS JON MILLER AND DUANE KUIPER CALLED PABLO SANDOVAL'S HISTORIC NIGHT AT THE PLATE IN GAME 1 OF THE 2012 WORLD SERIES.........

 

 

Sandoval's first two home runs came against Tigers ace Justin Verlander who clearly was out of sync. He gave up 5 runs in 4 innings and threw 99 pitches in his four innings of work. On the other hand, Barry Zito mixed and match beautifully, scattering six hits over 5.2 innings and surrendering only one run.

 

The Giants turn to Madison Bumgarner hoping he has ironed out his mechanical issues looking to take a 2-0 lead in the Fall Classic. The Tigers turn to Doug Fister who has pitched well for them in this 2012 post-season. Game time is 5:07pm and you can hear the game on our sister station 101.7 FM and AM 1340 with our pre-game at 4:30

Giants Celebrate a National League Pennant !


 

SERGIO ROMO CELEBRATES THE GIANTS NLCS PENNANT AS HIS GIANTS MATES  RUSH TO JOIN HIM

 

Down 0-2 against Cincinnati....No Problem. Down 1-3 against St. Louis...No Problem !

The Giants are headed to the World Series for the second time in three years with an amazing run of comebacks not seen in major league history. San Francisco won 6 elimination games within a two week stretch that puts them in the World Series for the second time in three years.

 

Matt Cain pitched 5.2 of shut-out baseball and Marco Scutaro continued his magic carpet-ride of a post-season with three hits, finishing 14-of-28 in the NLCS and garnering MVP honors. The Giants easily bested the Cardinals 9-0 in the decisive Game 7. The Giants outscored St. Louis 19-1 over the final three games of the series to streak into the Fall Classic.

 

 

WORLD SERIES MVP MARCO SCUTARO IS JOINED BY HUNTER PENCE AND BRANDON CRAWFORD AS

THEY CELEBRATE THE FINAL OUT AND THE NATIONAL LEAGUE PENNANT

 

 

"Destiny's Darlings" will be tested in the World Series against Detroit. The Giants will have to face Tigers right-hander are arguably the best pitcher in the game Justin Verlander in Game 1. Barry Zito is slated to get the ball for the Giants as the World Series is set to start on Wednesday at AT & T Park

 

Giants force Game 7 Tonight !


 

THE GIANTS ARE FLYING HIGH AFTER THEIR 6-1 WIN IN GAME 6 OF THE NLCS.

GAME 7 IS SCHEDULED FOR TONIGHT BUT HEAVY OVERNIGHT RAINS COULD PUT A DAMPER

ON THOSE PLANS

 

The San Francisco Giants like living dangerously. They are now 5-0 in elimination games this post-season as they beat the Cardinals last night 6-1. Ryan Vogelsong pitched a gem again. He twirled 7 innings of 5 hit ball and striking out a career high 9. He says he kept his focus and that served him well......

 

 

For the fifth time this post-season the Giants played a great game with their backs against the wall. Manager Bruce Bochy says his team finds a way in critical situations....

 

 

Marco Scutaro continued his torrid hitting. This two-run double in the second inning gave the Giants a 4-0 lead...

 

 

The Giants will send Matt Cain to the mound tonight against Hamilton City's Kyle Loshe. Loshe has a record of 16-3 with an earned run average of 2.79. Lohse says the two-straight losses will not bother the Cardinals as they try and win a decisive playoff game on the road for the third time in six years.....

 

 

Game time tonight is 5:00pm on 101.7 FM and AM 1340. If the game is rained out, Game 7 would be pushed back until Tuesday.

ZITO dominates Cards....We head for Game 6


 

HOW ABOUT THIS GUY ?? 

 

 

For five years Barry Zito has been a punching bag, a veritable pinata for San Francisco Giants fans.

He was the poster boy for bad baseball contracts. Last night, he took all of that angst, all of that 

frustration from years of criticism and perceived under-achieving and shoved it down everyone's 

throats.

 

Zito was magnificent in pitching the Giants back into the National League Championship Series

with the St. Louis Cardinals. Zito dazzled with a fastball that topped out at 85 miles per hour as

he kept the Cards off balance with a plethora of well-located fast-balls, dancing curveballs and 

an occasional change, just for posterity's sake.

 

The Giants would give Zito more than enough runs with a 4-run outburst in the 4th inning. The big

hit coming off of the bat of Brandon Crawford grounding a bases loaded single into center.

Pablo Sandoval would add his second home run in as many days in the 8th to put the cherry on top.

 

Zito was rather stoic in post-game interviews as he talked about how great it was to pitch well on 

the big stage. His best quote of the night came when asked if he had noticed the support he was

receiving on Twitter with the #RallyZito hashtag that was trending world-wide through-out the day,

Zito responded, "well I tried Twitter a few years ago, it was a pretty devastating experience."

The quote was classic Zito and was the only veiled mention he gave to being public enemy 

number one in San Francisco for so long.

 

For Zito it has to feel "Oh So Sweet," coming through on the big stage with his team and an entire 

fan base relying on him. And, with the spot-light shining its brightest he came up with a truly epic

performance.

 

Game 6 is Sunday in San Francisco with Ryan Vogelsong going for the Giants and Chris Carpenter 

pitching for the Cardinals. Game time is 5:15 and our pre-game on 101.7 FM and AM 1340 will

come your way at 4:45pm

Giants turn to Zito in a Must-Win Game 5


 

GIANTS SEASON RIDES ON BARRY ZITO AS SAN FRANCISCO FACES A 3-1 DEFICIT IN NLCS

 

Must-win is an over-used term but for the San Francisco Giants they have reached that point.

The Giants are down 3-to-1 in their best-of-seven NLCS series against the Cardinals after last night's

8-3 loss. San Francisco now turns to Barry Zito, much maligned for years by Giants fans for his over-inflated

contract and his lack of production. The Giants season now rides on Zito.

 

The Giants have won 12 straight Zito starts, but his most recent appearance was a sketchy 2.2 inning struggle

against the Cincinnati Reds in the divisional series. The Giants know if they can somehow find a way to win tonight they will have their two best pitchers throwing Games 6 & 7 at  AT & T Park.

 

The Chico State men's and women's soccer teams are on the road at San Bernardino for some big matches today. The men (8-2-3 overall, 7-1-3 CCAA) look to run their unbeaten streak to 10 as they take on the Coyotes. It has been a season of frustration for the women (5-9 overall, 3-9 CCAA) the Wildcats enter today's match against San Bernardino haviing lost 7 of 8 with six of those losses by one goal. In fact the Chico State women's team has scored a total of 5 goals in their last 8 matches. The women play at 1230 while the men play at 3.

 

The Chico State volleyball team ( 13-6 overall, 7-5 CCAA) got a nice win on the road on Thursday. The Wildcats knocked off Humboldt State in four sets. They now get ready for a trip to Kellogg Gym in Pomona for a match on Saturday night.

 

The Chico State men's and women's Cross Country teams get ready for the CCAA Championships in La Jolla. Both Wildcat men's and women's teams are expected to do well as they prepare for the NCAA Championships in two weeks.

Giants Lose Turn to The Freak


 

THE GIANTS ARE TURNING TO.....THIS GUY.....TO GET THEM EVEN IN THE NLCS

 

The San Francisco Giants are facing a pivotal Game 4 in the NLCS and they will turn to a guy who has been the anchor of their pitching staff for the past several seasons. Tim Lincecum will get the ball for the Giants today as they trail the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 in the best-of-seven NLCS.

 

Lincecum scuffled through a 10-15 season with a 5.18 ERA. But, he has been solid in his post-season relief appearances so far, pitchin 8.1 innings scattering 3 hits no runs and striking out nine. Giants manager Bruce Bochy has already said Barry Zito will get the ball in Game 5 for the Giants, meaning Madison Bumgarner is now relegated to the bullpen after six weeks of sub-par starts.

 

You can hear the game on 101.7 FM and AM 1340 at 5:00pm with the pre-game at 4:30.

 

The 49ers play a big Thursday night game tonight at home against the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers are trying to bounce back after last weekend's 26-3 loss to the New York Giants. Seattle had a thrilling 24-23 win over New England, coming back from 13 points down late in the 4th quarter. Kick-off is scheduled for 5:30pm

 

 

49ers get bullied and Giants lose at home AGAIN


 

It was not a great day for Bay Area sports teams. The 49ers got pushed around and bullied by the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants 26-3. Alex Smith threw three interceptions and the 49ers were beaten in all facets of the game.

 

 

IT WAS A LONG DAY FOR 49ERS HEAD COACH JIM HARBAUGH AND HIS STAFF

 

Jim Harbaugh told assembled media after the game that the game-plan was not a good one and that the 49ers don't have much time to pick up the pieces as they take on the resurgent Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night.

 

 

RODDY WHITE CATCHES A TOUCHDOWN IN THE FALCONS 23-20 WIN OVER THE RAIDERS ON SUNDAY

 

The Raiders played well enough to win, but did just enough to lose to the undefeated Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Matt Bryant's 55 yard field goal with one second left won it 23-20 for the Falcons. Atlanta goes to 6-0 while the Raiders fall to 1-4.

 

 

DAVID FREESE HITS A TWO-RUN HOMER IN THE SECOND INNING GIVING THE

CARDINALS IN EARLY LEAD IN THEIR GAME 1 WIN

 

The San Francisco Giants stayed winless at home during the post-season as they lose Game 1 of the NLCS to the St. Louis Cardinals 6-4. Madison Bumgarner was roughed up for the second time this post-season giving up 6 runs on 8 hits in 3 2/3 innings. Carlos Beltran and David Freese homered for the Cardinals as St. Louis jumped out to a 6-0 lead. The Giants would score 4 runs in the bottom of the fourth, but would be held in check the rest of the way by the Cardinal bullpen. Game two of the series is tonight at 5pm as the Giants send Ryan Vogelsong to the mound against Chris Carpenter. Our pre-game on 101.7 FM and AM 1340 comes your way at 4:30 with Kruk and Kuip.

A's Primed for History while Giants Deal Death-Blow to Rivals


 

 

ANGEL PAGAN BRINGS HOME WHAT WOULD BE THE DECISIVE RUN AS THE GIANTS ELIMINATE THE DODGERS FROM PLAYOFF CONTENTION

 

The Oakland A's are one win away from the most improbable of season recoveries. With a win they will win the AL West and could have home field advantage throughout the American League playoffs. A loss, and the A's would play in a one game playoff on Friday against either the Baltimore Orioles or the New York Yankees.

 

The San Francisco Giants delivered the death-blow to the Los Angeles Dodgers playoff hopes. With their 4-3 win, the Giants knocked the Dodgers out of the playoff contention. The Giants and Dodgers finish their regular seasons today at 4pm on Fox Sports Chico 101.7 FM/AM 1340. The Giants will open the playofffs at home on Saturday against either the Cincinnati Reds or the Washington Nationals at AT & T Park.

THE OAKLAND ATHLETICS CELEBRATE AN IMPROBABLE 2012 PLAYOFF BERTH

 

Who is going to play Billy Beane in Moneyball Part II ?

 

After what the Oakland A's pulled off this season, the Athletics warrant cinematic consideration. Picked by many to lose 100 games during this 2012 baseball season the A's secured a post-season spot by beating the Texas Rangers last night 4-3. The win, their 92nd of the year, puts the A's in the playoffs for the first time since 2006. If Oakland wins the next two days against Texas, they would secure the American League West Division title. Oakland plays Texas again tonight at 7:05pm

 

 

 

 

 

49ers blast the Jets and Denver pummels the Raiders


 

ALEX SMITH IS A HAPPY GUY AS THE 49ERS TROUNCE THE JETS IN NEW YORK

 

The San Francisco 49ers recovered from their loss in Minnesota a week ago with a convincing 34-0 shut-out win over the New York Jets. The 49ers harrassed Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez all afternoon and were also able to sustain drives in their big road win. The 49ers are now 3-1 on the season.

 

For the Raiders, it was another bad performance. The Raiders were never really in the game as Denver marches up and down the field at-will in a 37-6 victory in Denver. Peyton Manning throws for 338 yards and three TD's to lead the Broncos to victory. The Raiders dip to 1-3 on the season.
