SAN FRANCISCO - Yusmeiro Petit bounced off the mound pumping his fists and shouting Lets go!The right-hander from Venezuela certainly has found his swagger this October as a lights-out long man who delivers in the clutch game after game, inning after inning. Air Force 1 Cheap Wholesale .He did it again Saturday night for the San Francisco Giants, pitching three scoreless innings of relief against the Kansas City Royals in an 11-4 victory that tied the World Series at two games apiece.Petit came oh-so-close to tossing a perfect game in 2013 — now hes a perfect 3-0 this post-season. He entered in the fourth inning of Game 4 with the Giants trailing 4-2 and held Kansas City in check while his teammates rallied.The unsung star of the San Francisco pitching staff keeps adding memorable moments to a breakout season thats made him one of the games most versatile arms.Even if much of the baseball world might struggle to pronounce his first and last name (use-MARE-o peh-TEET), hes sure making a name for himself this month.Ryan Vogelsongs short night meant a long one for the San Francisco bullpen. And it worked out, thanks to another gutsy performance by Petit and his fellow relievers.Petit has thrown 12 scoreless innings of relief over three post-season outings this year. Hes allowed four hits and struck out 13.Pretty dominant numbers for a pitcher who was left out of the playoff rotation.This is the same guy who already set a major league record this season by retiring 46 consecutive batters over eight appearances, six in relief, from July 22 to Aug. 28.Moved into the rotation in late August to replace struggling right-hander Tim Lincecum, the 29-year-old Petit has dazzled almost every time he has taken the mound in his first post-season.Petit showed signs of this a year ago, when he carried a bid for a perfect game into the ninth inning against Arizona before allowing a two-out single on Sept. 6, 2013.On Saturday, Petit allowed two hits and struck out a pair of Royals.He became the first relief pitcher to win three games in one post-season while going at least three innings in each appearance and not allowing a run.Petit even came through at the plate with a surprising single, making him the first Giants reliever with a hit in the World Series since Slick Castleman in 1936, according to STATS.In all, the Giants got three singles, a run and a walk out of the No. 9 spot in their order.On a pitching staff with stars like Madison Bumgarner, Jake Peavy and Tim Hudson, Petit has more than hung tough each time manager Bruce Bochy calls his number.The reliever entered in the 12th inning of a 2-1, 18-inning win at Washington in Game 2 of the NL Division Series and threw six shutout innings, allowing one hit and striking out seven for the win.Petit pitched three more scoreless innings out of the bullpen to win Game 4 of the NLCS against the Cardinals.And while Bochy might have let Vogelsongs short leash run a bit too long Saturday night, Petits brilliance on the big stage made it a moot point. Wholesale Air Force 1 . Pospisil, from Vancouver, and Sock will compete for the title against defending champions and top seeds Bob and Mike Bryan of the United States, who defeated the 12th-seeded French duo of Michael Llodra and Nicolas Mahut 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-2. Wholesale Air Force 1 From China . And though his comeback night didnt quite go to script, Bryant couldnt help reflecting on the work necessary to get back on that court -- and all the months of steady labour ahead to reclaim his game. Bryant had nine points and eight rebounds in his season debut, but Amir Johnson scored a career-high 32 points in the trade-depleted Toronto Raptors 106-94 victory over Los Angeles on Sunday night.MOSCOW -- Russian middleweight Dmitry Chudinov successfully defended his WBA interim title Saturday, stopping Mehdi Bouadla in three rounds. In front of a strongly nationalist crowd at a motorbike festival in the Russian-speaking Crimean peninsula, annexed by Russia in March, Chudinov knocked down his French opponent in every roundd before the referee stopped the bout. Air Force 1 Clearance. Chudinov stays unbeaten with 14 wins and two draws, while Bouadla drops to a 30-6 career record. The fight was part of a festival in Sevastopol organized by the Night Wolves, a Russian biker group with whom Russian President Vladimir Putin has ridden in the past
