    SAN FRANCISCO -- Things have become so bad for the San Francisco Giants that Bruce Bochy is second-guessing his own managerial decisions. Cheap Sam Huff Jersey . Madison Bumgarner is lost for any explanation as to why the San Francisco Giants have been so inconsistent in the second half.Everybody knows one thing: There isnt much time left and there must be an immediate turnaround to become a playoff team. When youre losing and trying to hold on, scoreboard watching can be excruciating.Bumgarner (14-9) missed a chance at his milestone 100th career win and the Giants wasted another chance for a potential push in the NL West, losing to the San Diego Padres 3-1 on Wednesday to be swept by the divisions second-to-last-place club.This was a big series. Theyre all big, Bochy said. ...You take responsibility when things arent going well. Its always on your mind ... something you could have done a little bit differently. Its human nature. I think every manager or coach will tell you that. We wear it pretty hard.The division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers beat the New York Yankees later Wednesday, increasing their division lead to five games. On Tuesday night, San Franciscos bullpen blew a three-run lead in the ninth and the Giants failed to gain ground.Now, they must regroup to host St. Louis for an important four-game set starting Thursday night among playoff contenders and wild-card candidates. San Francisco has won the World Series in every even year this decade: 2010, `12 and `14.Theres a lot of pressure this time of year, Bumgarner said. Its more of a mindset this time of year.Luis Perdomo (8-9) allowed one run in 6 1/3 innings of four-hit ball. He struck out five with one walk. The 23-year-old right-hander who the Padres acquired in the Rule 5 draft from the Cardinals has given up three runs or fewer in 11 of his last 15 starts.Brandon Maurer finished for his 10th save.It was the same story for San Francisco of late with missed opportunities and mistakes.Trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the eighth, San Franciscos Denard Span was picked off trying to get back to first after drawing a two-out walk.Spans base-running blunder was the Giants second on the day. Brandon Belt was doubled up at second base in the bottom of the second on Conor Gillaspies liner to first.Bumgarner, the 2014 World Series MVP, allowed seven hits and three runs, all earned, with five strikeouts and two walks in 6 2/3 innings.When he takes his next turn, the lefty again would try to become the third-youngest Giants pitcher reach 100 victories.Luis Sardinas had an RBI single among his three hits for San Diego, while Wil Myers added a double.The Giants lost their sixth straight to San Diego -- outscored 29-15 -- after winning the initial nine matchups of 2016.San Francisco was swept by the Padres for the second time this season, after dropping three in a row at Petco Park to begin the second half. San Diego earned its first sweep at AT&T Park since May 2010.Its not this big macro statement about where we are in the season and what were trying to accomplish, Padres manager Andy Green said. Its not playing spoiler or anything like that.POSEYS PLEDGEBefore the game, Giants catcher Buster Posey and ESPN basketball analyst Dick Vitale teamed up to discuss their pledge to raise awareness and money for pediatric cancer research. Posey and wife Kristen were set to host a benefit at the ballpark for The V Foundations Buster and Kristen Posey Pediatric Cancer Research Award.TRAINERS ROOMPadres: RHP Jarred Cosart (hamstring, groin) still is in the plans to start Sundays series finale at Colorado or by Monday at home against Arizona at the latest.Giants: 1B Brandon Belt returned from an illness that kept him out Tuesday night. ... RHP Derek Law was activated from the 15-day disabled list on his 26th birthday after he missed 15 games with a strained right elbow.UP NEXTPadres: LHP Christian Friedrich (5-10, 4.67) will pitch the series opener in Colorado on Friday. Friedrichs most recent start was arguably his best this year. He struck out a season-high 10 batters and allowed one walk in seven shutout innings of two-hit ball against the Rockies.Giants: RHP Johnny Cueto (15-5, 2.90) starts the opener of a four-game series against St. Louis. Cueto is 2-2 with a 2.56 ERA over his last five starts. Hes 6-8 with a 3.88 ERA in 21 career starts against the Cardinals. Cheap Montae Nicholson Jersey . On Tuesday, Ottawa placed forward Cory Conacher and defenceman Joe Corvo on waivers as trade rumours swirl around the Senators. Cheap Earnest Byner Jersey . Francis told several hundred members of the European Olympic Committees that when sport "is considered only in economic terms and consequently for victory at every cost . . Fernandez, coached in Toronto by former two-time Olympic silver medallist Brian Orser, scored 267.11 points and is the first champion to successfully defend since Russias Evgeny Plushenko in 2005 and 2006. Speculation has it that even if Alabama does not beat Florida to win the SEC Championship, the Crimson Tide could still earn a spot in the third annual College Football Playoff.But dont suggest that to Tide coach Nick Saban.Thats certainly not the mindset that we want, Saban said. This is a big game for us. Its an opportunity to win the SEC championship, which to me is a very, very significant accomplishment. We hold that in very high esteem, having the opportunity to do that, having the ability to do it, having the ability to play for it.The Tide (12-0, 8-0 SEC) and Gators (8-3, 6-2 SEC) will clash at 4 p.m. ET Saturday in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, with CBS cameras catching the action.Alabamas players are locked into Sabans way of thinking.You dont ever want to lose really, Tide tight end O.J. Howard said. You dont want to have to let the season come down to the committee choosing what your stakes are. We just have to take care of business on the field ourselves and we can control our destiny.Alabama, No. 1 in this weeks College Football Playoff rankings, has a chance to become the first team to win three straight SEC championships since Florida won four from 1993 to 1996. Alabama made the College Football Playoff both years with a loss, and the Tide lost a game in three of their four national championship seasons as well.You all want to put everything on the playoffs, man. Thats all you care about, Saban said. You dont care about bowl games, you dont care about any teams in the country that arent in the playoffs. I dont know. If we dont win this game, maybe we throw a stink bomb out there, maybe we dont get in the playoffs. I dont know. You guys have all the answers to that, but I dont.All I know is that if we play and we play well, we control our destiny in terms of what we do. So Id really rather not have any more questions about Is it OK to lose this game? Its never OK to lose a game.With an offense that is producing nearly 40 points and 480 yards a game led by freshman quaarterback Jalen Hurts (20 touchdown passes, 12 rushing touchdowns, 2,454 yards passing, 840 rushing) and running back Damien Harris (897 yards rushing), the Tide is expected to roll over a Florida defensive unit that is could have seven starters out with injuries. Authentic Washington Redskins Jerseys. End Jordan Sherit, injured in last weeks loss to Florida State, is the latest addition to a list that features end Bryan Cox Jr., linebackers Jarrad Davis and Alex Anzalone and safeties Nick Washington and Marcus Maye. They could be joined by linebacker Daniel McMillian and safety Duke Washington, who are day-to-day.The problems are multiplied with the difficulties the Gators have moving the ball with an offense that ranks 13th out of 14 teams in the SEC and averages 352.7 yards a game rushing and passing.Backup quarterback Austin Appleby likely will start with injured starter Luke Del Rio available on a limited basis against an Alabama defense that has held opponents to national lows of 68.7 yards a game rushing and 246.8 yards a game in total offense.But Gators coach Jim McElwain isnt conceding anything.I dont look at it as mismatch, he said. I look at it as a great opportunity. Thats part of the chess match.Still, the Gators have scored just 29 points over their last two games and failed to score an offensive touchdown last week in a 31-13 loss to Florida State.Weve got to get the ball in our playmakers hands in space and allow them to be able to make plays, McElwain said.The game is a rematch of last seasons SEC title game, which Alabama won 29-15. This will be the ninth time they have played for the championship since the league split into two divisions in 1992. They have split the previous eight meetings 4-4.It means a lot to be able to be in this ballgame, McElwain said. This is one of those weekends where a lot of teams arent playing. Its an honor to be representing the East. Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys CamoCheap NFL Jerseys Camo Wholesale NFL Gear Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys ' ' '
