Wade Mileys left arm didnt do the Giants any fav

PHOENIX -- Mark Trumbos bat put a dent in San Franciscos NL West hopes. Wade Mileys left arm didnt do the Giants any favours either. Trumbo hit a grand slam off Ryan Vogelsong, Miley pitched seven effective innings and the Giants dropped further behind in the NL West with a 6-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night. Joaquin Arias had three hits and Buster Posey a run-scoring single for the Giants, who dropped four games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West. "They scored all three runs with two outs," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "We had a couple of pretty good opportunities, but couldnt get it close enough to put a little more pressure on them." A pair of losses to the Dodgers over the weekend hurt San Franciscos NL West chances, but the Giants were still in control of the NL wild card, entering Mondays game three games up on Pittsburgh for the top spot. What the Giants couldnt afford was a letdown in a three-game series at Chase Field, where they had won 16 of 22 games and six straight series since 2012. The start of this series against the struggling Diamondbacks didnt go so well. Miley (8-11) bounced back from his shortest outing of the season by slowing down his mechanics, allowing one run. Trumbo started Arizonas homestand strong and kept it going against the Giants, hitting his ninth homer off Vogelsong (8-11) in the third inning and a run-scoring single off Juan Gutierrez in the seventh. Trumbo has six hits and nine RBIs the past three games. "Hes kind of hitting his stride lately, swinging the bat much better, more comfortable," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said of Trumbo. Vogelsong pitched 6 2-3 scoreless innings against the Diamondbacks his last outing, but was in trouble by the third in his 30th start of the season. The Diamondbacks loaded the bases against him and Trumbo cashed in, ending a 120 at-bat homerless streak by lifting his second career grand slam just over the wall in right. Arizona loaded the bases again in the sixth against Vogelsong, but Javier Lopez ended the threat by inducing a groundout on his first pitch. Vogelsong allowed four runs and six hits with four walks and five strikeouts. It was a bad inning; it wasnt very good," Vogelsong said. Miley had his shortest outing of the season his last start against the Giants, lasting just two innings after giving up three runs and five hits. The left-hander tried to throw too hard in that outing and spent the days in between trying to slow things down. He did against the Giants in his 100th career start, escaping a jam in the second inning and giving up one run on Brandon Crawfords groundout in the seventh. "Youve just got to put those behind you -- those (games) are going to happen," said Miley, who struck out four. "Youve just got to make adjustments and go on to the next one." PAGAN OUT Giants OF Angel Pagan tried to play Monday night despite a stiff back. When his back was still tight during batting practice, the Giants pulled him from the lineup, hoping that hed be able to play Tuesday after receiving treatment. "We miss him when he is not in the lineup," Bochy said. "We are a different club. He is our leadoff hitter, our catalyst. He is the guy that kind of makes things go. RISP TROUBLES The Giants had been on a tear with runners in scoring position, hitting .361 over the past 18 games. They couldnt come through against Arizona, going 2 for 10 while stranding nine runners. TRAINERS ROOM Giants: 1B Brandon Belt was activated before the game after clearing concussion protocols. He had been on the DL since Aug. 8. Diamondbacks: OF David Peralta (back) has resumed all baseball activities and could join Arizona for its final road trip. UP NEXT Giants: RHP Jake Peavy, Tuesdays starter against Arizona, has allowed two earned runs or less in six straight starts. He pitched 5 2-3 innings of one-run ball in a 6-2 victory over Arizona on Thursday. Diamondbacks: RHP Josh Collmenter is 2-0 with a 0.65 ERA over his last four starts, leaving him one win shy of matching his career high of 10. Malcom Brown Jersey .

Joe Thuney Jersey .com) - Stephen Currys jumper with 3.PARIS - Michael Schumacher is showing "small, encouraging signs" that he may awake from his coma, his agent said Wednesday, more than two months after a ski crash left the Formula One champion with severe head injuries. Updates since Schumachers accident have offered few details and limited optimism for the man who once drove the worlds fastest cars and motorcycles but was critically injured on a familiar ski slope during a family outing. Wednesdays statement was little different, describing "an extremely intimate and fragile situation" for his family. "It is very hard to comprehend for all of us that Michael, who had overcome a lot of precarious situations in the past, has been hurt so terribly in such a banal situation," Sabine Kehm, a family representative, wrote in a statement. "We are and remain confident that Michael will pull through and will wake up. There sometimes are small, encouraging signs, but we also know that this is the time to be very patient." Small signs that physicians are watching for could include fluttering eyelids, or efforts to breathe without a ventilator. "This doesnt change ones opinion of Schumachers situation in general. Its still very difficult to predict wwhat his long-term recovery will be like and if he does wake up and comes off the ventilator," said Dr.dddddddddddd Tipu Aziz, professor of neurosurgery at Oxford University. "In all likelihood he will be severely disabled," said Aziz, who has not been involved in treating Schumacher. Schumacher, known affectionately as Schumi, was hospitalized with severe head injuries after the Dec. 29 ski accident, which split his helmet as he crashed into rocks on the slope at the Meribel ski station in the French Alps. Doctors put him into a coma to rest his brain and decrease swelling, and they operated to remove blood clots, but some were too deeply embedded. Neurologists not involved in his treatment say full recovery appears increasingly unlikely, given the comas duration and the extent of his injuries. "Every brain injury is different and no two routes to recovery will be the same," said Luke Griggs, a spokesman for Headway, a British brain injury charity. "It is fair to suggest that any patient waking from a three month-long coma will face the prospect of a long and challenging road to recovery, with the eventual outcome uncertain."
