This much is clear: Rondos return is i

SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants slugger Michael Morse received a couple of batting tips from home run king Barry Bonds during spring training. Lance Alworth Blue Jersey . He obviously heeded the advice. Morse homered for the second consecutive game to back another stellar outing by Tim Hudson, and San Francisco beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 on Friday night. "One thing Barry told me was just go up and try to get hits," Morse said. "Home runs are a product of good swings." Morse might have been channeling Bonds a bit when he hit a towering blast to right-centre off Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco. The leadoff shot in the fourth went to one of the deepest parts of the park and is Morses sixth home run of the season. He also drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the first. "For a guy to hit the ball where he hit it, a man has to do that," San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. "I guess thats why hes got the nickname The Beast." Hunter Pence had two hits and two RBIs while Brandon Crawford also knocked in a run to help the Giants win in their first interleague game of the season after going just 6-14 against the American League in 2013. Hudson (3-1) scattered four hits over seven innings and struck out five. He walked two, ending an impressive streak of 30 consecutive innings without one. Michael Bourn tripled and scored Clevelands only run. Jason Kipnis and Nick Swisher added two hits apiece for the Indians, who lost for just the second time in six games. The Giants jumped on Carrasco for two runs in the first inning, then rode the pitching of Hudson and two relievers to the win in their first game against a team outside of the NL West this season. Hudson had not issued a walk in his first four starts this season before giving up a free pass to Carlos Santana with two outs in the first. It was the longest walk-less streak to start a season by a pitcher in the majors since Tiny Bonhams 33-inning stretch for the New York Yankees in 1944. Hudson also walked Santana in the sixth. Beyond that, San Franciscos crafty right-hander was solid in his first start against the Indians since May 30, 2004. He pitched out of two-out, two-on jam in the first and retired nine straight after giving up an RBI single to Nick Swisher in the third. "It was a nice streak to start the year," Hudson said. "Obviously it was not going to continue all year. Thats not typically the kind of pitcher I am." Jeremy Affeldt pitched a scoreless eighth and Javier Lopez worked the ninth to complete the five-hitter. Morse, who homered twice in Wednesdays extra-inning win over Colorado, made it hold up with a sacrifice fly in the first and a leadoff home run in the fourth, a booming shot to centre on an 0-2 pitch from Carrasco. Pence added an RBI triple in the first and an RBI single in the third. Both times he drove in Angel Pagan. Carrasco (0-3) allowed four runs over six innings. The right-hander, winless over his past 17 starts dating to 2011, struck out six and walked one. He didnt get much support, either. The Indians had two runners on in the first, sixth and eighth but failed to score each time. The bottom six spots in Clevelands lineup went 0-for-21. "We couldnt generate enough offence to climb back in," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "(Carrascos) fastball was kind of what plagued him tonight right from the get-go. He was scattering some fastballs and I think thats what got him in a little bit of trouble." Pagan had two hits in his return to the Giants lineup after being limited to a pinch-hitting role on Wednesday. San Franciscos leadoff hitter underwent an MRI on Thursday and was diagnosed with what manager Bruce Bochy called a "chronic small tear" of the patella tendon in his right knee. The Giants made it 5-1 when slumping Pablo Sandoval tripled in the seventh and scored on Brandon Crawfords single. Sandoval, who went into the game batting just .165, was dropped to sixth in the Giants order and went 1-for-3. NOTES: Bochy said he plans to keep Morse in the No. 5 spot as protection for cleanup hitter Buster Posey. Morse leads the Giants with 17 RBIs. ... RHP Tim Lincecum (1-1), who pitches for San Francisco on Saturday, has struck out 24 hitters in 21 innings. ... RHP Zach McAllister (3-0) goes for the Indians and has not allowed a home run in 31 consecutive innings dating to 2013. Lance Alworth Black Jersey . Jurrjens signed a minor league contract with Cincinnati in May, and was 2-3 with a 4.46 ERA at Triple-A Louisville. He has a 53-37 record with a 3.63 ERA in seven major league seasons, including five with Atlanta. Melvin Gordon Chargers Jersey . Zdeno Chara and Jarome Iginla scored for Boston. The Bruins took over the top spot in the Eastern Conference with 93 points, one more than Pittsburgh.OAKLAND, Calif. -- Rajon Rondo says he hopes to make his season debut before the All-Star break. Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens says he has never spoken to Rondo or anybody in the organization about a specific return date. This much is clear: Rondos return is inching closer. Rondo, who has been out since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee last January, told reporters at the teams morning shootaround Friday in San Francisco that he hopes to make his season debut before the break but declined to give a specific date. Bostons last game before the break is Feb. 12. "Its just a feeling," Rondo told reporters. "Ill probably just wake up (one) morning and play." Stevens said before the Celtics played at Golden State on Friday night that the decision for Rondo to return will not be made by him. Instead, the first-year Celtics coach said it will be solely up to team doctors and the point guard. "Its not my call," Stevens said. "Obviously the trainers, No. 1, to be able to clear him to do certain things, to clear him to play games, to clear him to practice. Thats their job, and they do that well. "And its about him feeling ready in a number of wways. Craig Mager Elite Jersey. . I cant lose sleep over things I cant control personally. Im more concerned about him being healthy. I want him to be fully ready to go mentally, emotionally and physically. And when that time is right, well plug him right in." Stevens also stressed hes still not sure when Rondo will return. "We never talked about a specific date," Stevens said. "Its been, Hey, when you feel like youre close, then well talk at that point. But Ive never talked to him about that nor have I heard from our organization that theres been a date thats been targeted." Rondo runs the offence but cant do it from the sideline. The four-time All-Star point guards return has been uncertain since the team announced during a double-overtime win against Miami on Jan. 27, 2013, that he would have season-ending surgery. He had injured his knee two days earlier against Atlanta. Doctors cleared Rondo to participate fully in practice in the middle of December. Theres also the possibility he could play for the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League before rejoining the Celtics, who had lost six straight and nine of their last 10 entering Friday nights game at the Warriors. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale JerseysWholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
