SAN FRANCISCO - They packed AT&T Park for the 445th straight time to see Madison Bumgarner. All 41,928 who attended Saturday night received a Bumgarner bobblehead. They cheered when he walked to the mound, when he threw a strike, and when he swung a bat. For six innings, Madison Bumgarner did what the otherworldly ace of a first-place team is supposed to do against a rebuilding one. Then Cameron Rupp took one mighty swing in the seventh to silence an entire ballpark. "I crushed it," Rupp said.

Shortstop Juan Uribe was a late scratch from last night's lineup and was replaced by veteran Edgar Renteria. Before the game, Giants manager Bruce Bochy sounded optimistic that Uribe will be back in the lineup for tomorrow's Game 3. Uribe injured his left wrist in the sixth inning of Game 1 when he singled in the Giants' fourth run in the 4-3 win. He advanced to second base as the throw from Shane Victorino went to home plate and injured the...

San Francisco lefthander Madison Bumgarner was scratched from his Sunday start against San Diego because of tightness in his rib cage and a nerve condition in his left foot. Bumgarner said that both problems were minor but that he didn't want to let them linger. He said he would have pitched had it been a regular-season game. Bumgarner developed neuroma, a nerve condition affecting toes on his left foot, during the offseason and said it was under control following treatment. The 2014 World Series MVP felt something pull in his rib cage in batting practice a few days ago. Yanks' Gardner takes his swings New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner batted nine times Sunday in his first simulated game since bruising his left wrist in last year's AL wild-card loss to Houston.

SAN FRANCISCO - Gregor Blanco's bunt single dribbled about halfway down the third base line and stopped inches fair, next to the white chalk. Several Tigers stood over the ball, almost in disbelief. The San Francisco Giants are getting all the good bounces so far this World Series, and they're in control largely because of them. Blanco reached on that perfect bunt in the seventh inning, and the Giants went ahead moments later on Brandon Crawford's bases-loaded double-play ball.

SAN FRANCISCO - In this NL Championship Series between the Phillies and Giants, the pitchers with star power have had their say, for better or worse. The first installments of the highly anticipated matchups - Roy Halladay vs. Tim Lincecum, Roy Oswalt vs. Jonathan Sanchez, Cole Hamels vs. Matt Cain - have been played out. Now it's time for "the other guys" to take the mound - Joe Blanton for the Phillies and Madison Bumgarner for the Giants - and the performances they turn out will be no less significant in Wednesday's Game 4 at AT&T Park.

The perennial bottom-feeding Kansas City Royals have run the table through the playoffs thus far in their first postseason appearance since 1985. They start the World Series tonight at home against the San Francisco Giants, who are on a quest to win their third World Series in 5 years and become the defining team of the decade. Take a look at how the teams match up in terms of hitting, pitching, fielding, running and managing: HITTING Royals: Timely hitting and small ball have fueled KC's underdog run to the American League pennant, but the Royals ranged from mediocre to poor offensively in the regular season (23rd in OPS+, which adjusts for ballpark differences)

SAN FRANCISCO - All along, Vince Velasquez predicted he would need just one minor-league rehab start, and there he was Friday with his Phillies teammates to throw a bullpen session at AT&T Park. "I knew what I had to do in Reading," Velasquez said, "and I did it. " So Velasquez, on the disabled list since June 9 with a strained right biceps, should start Monday in Arizona. The question, then, is how many more starts Velasquez will make in 2016. The Phillies will limit the innings of Velasquez, who threw just 88 1/3 innings in 2015.

With his club falling further out of playoff contention by the day, Giants general manager Brian Sabean started making sweeping changes yesterday. Outfielder Aaron Rowand and infielder Miguel Tejada were designated for assignment by the defending World Series champions. "We're at a spot in the season where we have to do some damage control with the roster. A couple things played into it. In both cases, there was diminished playing time, diminished roles," Sabean said. The Giants have 10 days to trade or release each player.

SAN FRANCISCO  - Zach Eflin threw his third pitch of the night, a 95-mph fastball that Denard Span tapped toward first base, and the rookie pitcher encountered immediate adversity. Ryan Howard bobbled the routine ball. Four batters later, the streaking Giants led. But, once six innings in a 5-4 Phillies loss were complete, the rebuilding team had learned quite a bit about Eflin. He eluded trouble as he pitched in front of the 444th straight sellout at AT&T Park. San Francisco threatened with a runner in scoring position in four of Eflin's six innings.

SAN FRANCISCO - In his first full big-league season, Cody Asche has endured his share of hot and cold stretches. He was in one of the former 3 weeks ago when the San Francisco Giants were in Philadelphia for a four-game series. Entering July 23, Asche had hit safely in 11 of 14 games . . . but he was still held out of the starting lineup against All-Star lefthander Madison Bumgarner. Three weeks later, Asche has come into AT&T Park in the midst of a dry spell at the plate: 2-for-26 in an eight-game stretch.

The Phillies scored only two runs on five hits combined during two consecutive losses to the Miami Marlins. Jump-starting the offense won't be easy Monday night when they open a three-game series in San Francisco against the Giants. The Phillies will face 23-year-old lefthander Madison Bumgarner, who is off to a sizzling start. Bumgarner, who is 2-0 with a 0.00 career record in two World Series games, is 3-0 with a 1.55 ERA this season. He has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his six starts.

By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Pablo Sandoval became just the fourth player to hit three home runs in a World Series game, connecting twice against Justin Verlander and once off Al Alburquerque to lead the San Francisco Giants over the Detroit Tigers 8-3 in Wednesday night's opener. Sandoval hit a solo home run to right-center in the first, a two-run, opposite-field drive to left in the third and another bases-empty shot into the center-field batter's eye in the fifth.
