SAN FRANCISCO -- Alex Reyes arrived in the majors this year already packing some of the best stuff in baseball. Cheap Orlando Magic Jerseys .On Sunday, the 22-year-old Cardinals right-hander showed he can handle the spotlight just fine, too.Reyes pitched seven dominant innings in his third major league start, fellow rookie Aledmys Diaz hit a two-run homer and St. Louis moved up in the tight NL wild-card race by beating the San Francisco Giants 3-0 on Sunday.He kind of answers a lot of questions about whether he can handle pressure when you put him in a spot like that, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. He knows where we are in the season and hes been able to stay focused and continue to really maximize the moment.The Giants dropped one game behind the New York Mets for the top NL wild-card spot. The Cardinals closed within one game of San Francisco.St. Louis split this four-game series, winning the final two. The struggling Giants finished their homestand 2-5 and have won just one series at AT&T Park since the All-Star break.Reyes (3-1) has thrived since being called up on Aug. 9 when Michael Wacha went on the disabled list with shoulder discomfort.Coming into the series you know its going to be a playoff atmosphere, Reyes said. Being on the field for the first time here in San Francisco it was fun and it was exciting to be on the mound.Reyes gave up four hits, struck out six and walked two. The rightys fastball was consistently in the mid-to-upper 90s mph, and he also mixed in a slider.Not the 100-plus mph stuff hes flashed, but an efficient game plan that got the job done.Just being consistent, throwing everything for strikes and getting early contact and not being afraid to let them put the ball in play, Reyes said. Thats what worked today.Seung Hwan Oh pitched a scoreless ninth for his 18th save.Diaz hit his 16th homer in the third off Albert Suarez (3-4). The All-Stars shot followed Matt Carpenters two-out double.Suarez has allowed three runs or fewer in his first 11 career starts, but the rookie is winless in 10 outings (including six starts) since June 23.The Giants appeared to still be reeling from another blown ninth-inning lead in Saturdays 3-2 loss.That hurt, not holding on, thats a big swing, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Saturdays game.The Giants were 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position.We created some chances today, we just couldnt get them in, we couldnt get the big hit, Bochy said.LAW AND ORDERWith the Giants in desperate need of bullpen help, manager Bruce Bochy said right-hander Derek Law will be a ninth-inning option in a reshuffling plan going forward. Giants relievers have blown seven of 11 save opportunities this month. The team has already tied a franchise record with eight losses in games it led after eight innings.Law has an 0.39 ERA in 26 outings since July 4.Its time to tweak it a little bit, Bochy said, Im not saying Laws the closer, but with him and (right-hander Hunter Strickland), theyre going to be more in the mix in the eighth and ninth.TRAINERS ROOMUmpires: Plate umpire Brian ONora left the game after being struck in the mask by a foul ball of Hunter Pences bat in the second inning. He was diagnosed with a concussion by Giants team doctor Kenneth Akizuki. Second base umpire Laz Diaz called the rest of the game behind the plate.Ive been doing this for 30 years and Ive never been hit that hard, ONora said.Cardinals: 1B Matt Adams was out of the lineup a day after being pulled from Saturdays game with a jammed left wrist, but was available to pinch-hit, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. ... Plans to let injured OF Matt Holliday bat in a simulated game are on hold until further notice. Holliday has been out since Aug. 12 with a swollen right thumb. Wed like to see consecutive days with him letting it go and no setbacks in order for us to even start talking about having a live session, Matheny said.UP NEXTCardinals: RHP Carlos Martinez (14-8, 3.15 ERA) pitches the series opener in Colorado. He is 4-1 with six quality starts in his last seven outings.Giants: LHP Madison Bumgarner (14-9, 2.66 ERA) faces three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw in what will be the 11th matchup between the two southpaws in the series opener in Los Angeles. Bumgarner is 4-3 with a 4.44 ERA in nine starts since Aug. 2.---This story has been updated to correct the spelling of Aledmys Diaz. Jonathan Isaac Jersey .

While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. Making a statement for South Korea, SK Telecom T1 summoned Bae Bengi Seong-woong off the bench to assist Lee Faker Sang-hyeok to body North Americas Cloud9. This wasnt so much a game as it was a solo queue stomp.C9s mid laner Nicolaj Jensen Jensen was the target of constant abuse from Bengi and Faker; he simply couldnt hold his own against the two-time World Champions and ended up with no kills, six deaths and six assists. Jungler William Meteos Hartman had little presence in the early and mid game while Bengi made moves in the mid and top lanes.Bottom and top lane for C9 were relatively even most of the time in the laning phase, but SKT simply converted its bullying of Jensen into a tangible lead that was never relinquished. Dwight Howard Jersey. While this was supposed to be a big game for C9 top laner Jung Impact Eon-yeong, who was taking on his former team, the North Americans as a whole fell flat. At 27 minutes SKT was ahead 11k gold, and walked into a defenseless base to claim the easy victory at 34 minutes. ' ' '
