San Diego Padres manager Bruce Bochy wasn't going to push Kevin Brown too far. Brown won his 10th straight decision with relief help from Dan Miceli and Trevor Hoffman, and Greg Vaughn hit his 38th home run as the visiting San Diego Padres beat the Montreal Expos, 5-4, last night. "It was getting up there and it was a rough travel day, we didn't get in until around 4," Bochy said. "He [Brown] had done his job and Miceli's been throwing well. " Brown (13-3) struck out 10 for the second straight game and third time in four starts, allowing four runs on seven hits without a walk in seven innings.

Tim Lincecum said he won't be concerned with the Phillies' Roy Halladay when the Giants' ace takes the mound Saturday for a celebrated matchup between the game's top two righthanders in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series at Citizens Bank Park. The two-time Cy Young Award winner has bigger worries. "I get to face Halladay, what, once every nine at-bats," Lincecum said Friday. "It's not so much him I'm worried about. Obviously, our hitters are. But I'm more worried about pitch execution to guys like [Ryan]

SAN FRANCISCO - If Bruce Bochy were a juggling act, he'd never drop anything. In an effort to boost production, the Giants' manager shook up his lineup for Game 3 at AT&T Park, and it couldn't have worked out better. His club defeated the Phillies, 3-0, to take a two-games-to-one lead in the NL Championship Series. Struggling leadoff hitter Andres Torres was benched in favor of Aaron Rowand in center field. Rowand led off the fifth inning with a double and scored his team's third run. Edgar Renteria batted in the top spot.

When things are going well, why change? Basically, that was Bruce Bochy's approach when the San Francisco manager decided to stay with Mike Fontenot at third base instead of Pablo Sandoval for Saturday's Game 1 of the National League Championship Series against the Phillies. Aside from Bochy's gut feeling, there wasn't much reason to leave Fontenot in the lineup ahead of Sandoval. Both went 1 for 6 in the NL division series against Atlanta, but Fontenot was at third for the final two games of the series, both won by the Giants.

Bruce Bochy, who is getting ready to manage a major league team on its exhibition tour in Japan, reportedly has taken care of some other business first. The San Jose Mercury News reported last night that Bochy has agreed to become the new manager of the San Francisco Giants, taking over for the fired Felipe Alou. Bochy will leave San Diego after managing the Padres to first place in the National League West last season. The Giants scheduled a news conference for today to announce the deal.

SAN FRANCISCO - Another game, a different lineup for the Giants. Out of necessity, manager Bruce Bochy, who had been pushing all the right buttons while shuffling his lineup, removed Juan Uribe and replaced him with switch-hitter Pablo Sandoval at third base for Wednesday's Game 4 of the NLCS. Incredibly, the move turned out to be genius. Sandoval had the key two-run double in the sixth inning that gave the Giants a 5-4 lead. And Uribe, who went 0 for 3 in Game 3 and is apparently still feeling the effects of a bruised wrist, hit the game-winning sacrifice fly off Roy Oswalt in the bottom of the ninth in the 6-5 win. He injured the wrist sliding into second base in the series opener and sat out Game 2.   Fondness for Phils Aaron Rowand celebrated the Phillies' World Series championship in 2008 even though he was a Giant.

The Phillies have run into Bruce Bochy once before in the postseason. Actually, "run into" is too mild of a phrase. They bowled him over like a duckpin. The Phils are hoping the 2010 National League Championship Series meeting with Bochy that begins Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park winds up like their first one, 30 years ago, with them still standing and with the San Francisco Giants manager wondering what hit him. A third-string Houston Astros catcher at the time, Bochy earned his indelible black-and-blue mark in Phillies history when, in the 10th inning of Game 4 of the 1980 NLCS, he was hit by a history-bound train.

Let it rain The Nationals are weatherproof, says Washington slugger Ryan Zimmerman, after powering a wet and wild 14-6 win over the Colorado Rockies in a steady drizzle in Denver on Thursday. The Nats set a season high in runs in the game, called after eight innings when the conditions worsened. "It seems like the last week, we've played in this [weather] every single night," Zimmerman said. "I guess we're getting used to it. " Looking through raindrops at the plate, Zimmerman hit two homers and drove in a career-high six runs.

The San Francisco Giants and free-agent first baseman Ryan Klesko agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.75 million contract yesterday, giving the club another option at first with recently acquired Rich Aurilia. Klesko is yet another figure the Giants have plucked from the rival San Diego Padres, the two-time and defending National League West champions. San Francisco also hired manager Bruce Bochy away from the Padres and agreed to a three-year, $18 million contract with centerfielder Dave Roberts.

SAN DIEGO - Tim Lincecum walked into the San Francisco Giants' clubhouse late yesterday morning and, yes, his right arm was still attached to his body. That was no small matter, considering that Lincecum threw 148 pitches in his first career no-hitter Saturday night. The Freak, indeed. While he was still trying to put his no-hitter into perspective, Lincecum said his arm was OK after his incredible effort in the Giants' 9-0 victory against the last-place San Diego Padres.

KUNG FU PANDA, The Freak, The Beard and all their seed-throwing buddies are on top of baseball - again. They may be under the radar, unappreciated and unexpected. But they're unassailable, the winner of two World Series titles in the last 3 years. Their sweep of the Detroit Tigers, completed Sunday night with a 4-3, 10-inning win, was historic. No National League team had swept a World Series since the 1990 Cincinnati Reds. No NL team had won twice in a 3-year span since the Big Red Machine in 1975-76.

The Giants sure are tough to eliminate this postseason. Barry Zito and the Giants gave themselves at least one more game in the NL Championship Series with a 5-0 victory Friday in St. Louis that forced Sunday's Game 6 back at AT&T Park. Just where the NL West winners want to be with their season on the line - in front of the raucous, orange-towel-waving sellout crowd. "It's great to be back in San Francisco. There is no tomorrow," Giants rightfielder and ex-Phillie Hunter Pence said.

ORLANDO CABRERA had become a bit concerned as San Francisco's skid hit five games while its offense sputtered. Then, Cabrera started clicking with his new club and, suddenly, so did the rest of the Giants. And Ryan Vogelsong? He was his typical reliable self on the mound when it mattered. Vogelsong won his career-best sixth straight decision, Cabrera hit a two-run double and drove in three runs, and the Giants remained atop the NL West with an 8-1 victory over the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday.

Bruce Bochy didn't have to wait until game time before feeling the wrath of Phillies fans at Citizens Bank Park. The manager of the World Series champion San Francisco Giants no sooner stepped off the team bus in front of the hotel when some Philly guys let him have it. "A couple of guys wanted to know why I used their pitchers," Bochy said before the Phillies and Vance Worley beat the Giants, 7-2, Tuesday night. It was the first game of a three-game series between the teams that met in last year's National League Championship Series.

IN ANOTHER TIME, in another day, the events that transpired during last week's All-Star Game would be viewed benignly, even humorously. Bruce Bochy wouldn't be that devious to try and wear out the Phillies' two best-paid aces while saving his own. He wouldn't be that calculating to plot this far in advance, knowing his decisions that night would result in a distinct advantage when the Giants come to town for next week's playoff rematch at...

DENVER - Tim Lincecum, the two-time Cy Young Award winner who led San Francisco to the World Series title six months ago, took a no-hitter into the seventh inning at Coors Field and the Giants routed the Colorado Rockies, 8-1, Monday night. Spotted an early eight-run cushion thanks to homers by Pat Burrell, Nate Schierholtz, and Freddy Sanchez, Lincecum cruised through Colorado's lineup, dominating baseball's best team over the season's first 21/2 weeks until Carlos Gonzalez broke up his no-hit bid with a clean single in the seventh.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Pat the Bat sat. Pat Burrell, the former Phillie whom the Giants signed off the scrapheap in late May, was benched by manager Bruce Bochy last night after going hitless in the first three games of the World Series. Last night's lineup traded power potential for improved defense, Bochy said. But it improved the offense, too, evidenced in the Giants' 4-0 win that gave them a 3-1 series lead. "Just trying to get back to where he was, whether it was moving your hands a little bit, getting your starting foot down sooner, things like that," Bochy said.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Madison Bumgarner, all of 21 years and 91 days old, stood behind the mound as the seventh-inning stretch during Game 4 of the World Series lengthened. First, ballpark officials had to wait for TV to begin "God Bless America. " Then, after an elongated rendition, troops were honored behind home plate. Bumgarner took off his glove and clapped as the ceremonies ended. The San Francisco lefthander was six shutout innings into the most important start of his young life and far from done.
