SAN FRANCISCO -- Ehire Adrianza became the latest pinch-runner in the majors to make a decisive dash. Damian Lillard Jersey . Adrianza scored the winning run in his big league debut, speeding home Sunday on Angel Pagans single in the 11th inning to lift the San Francisco Giants over the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2. In a week that saw Cincinnatis Billy Hamilton and Bostons Quintin Berry score key runs as pinch-runners, Adrianza did his part. "That was so exciting," Adrianza said. "I have been waiting for this moment since I was 3 years old. It was pretty amazing and it feels great. As a pinch-runner it was an honour to win a game like that." Adrianza has been a minor league shortstop in the Giants system since he was 16 in 2006. Hector Sanchez hit a leadoff single in the 11th against Joe Thatcher (3-2). Adrianza moved up when Gregor Blanco reached safely on a sacrifice bunt and beat the throw home on Pagans single. Javier Lopez (3-2) got the win. Sanchez also drove in a run for the Giants, who split the series with Arizona. "I just tried to put the ball in play and took advantage of the hole," Sanchez said. "I feel great right now. Im comfortable swinging. I feel amazing." Eric Chavez and A.J. Pollack each drove in runs for the Diamondbacks. "We have not swung the bats very well at all, especially in the good situations," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "Were not in a good streak right now." Gibson was ejected in the 10th for arguing after first base umpire Tom Hallion reversed his original call. The Diamondbacks had runners at first and second with two outs when Aaron Hill grounded to first baseman Buster Posey. After bobbling the ball, Posey flipped to pitcher George Kontos covering the bag. Hallion called Hill safe, then consulted with the other umpires and ruled him out. Giants starter Madison Bumgarner threw six shutout innings, allowing four hits. He struck out nine and did not walk a batter. Bumgarner remains winless over his last seven starts. "It doesnt matter if I get the win or not, thats out of our control," Bumgarner said. "All the starters are trying to do is compete, eat up some innings and keep us in it." Diamondbacks starter Wade Miley went seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits. He walked two and struck out three. Joaquin Arias singled to lead off the eighth for the Giants and went to second on Tony Abreus sacrifice bunt. He was left there. Matt Davidson walked to lead off the ninth for the Diamondbacks but pinch-runner Tony Campana was caught stealing. Miguel Montero followed with a single but was stranded. Miley retired nine of the first 10 hitters before running into trouble in the fourth. Tony Abreu walked and Posey doubled to open the inning. One out later, Sanchez bumped a single into right field to score one run and Posey later scored on a wild pitch. The Diamondbacks scored twice in the eighth against Santiago Casilla, Chavez hit a sacrifice fly and Pollack had an RBI single. NOTES: OF Hunter Pence needs a home run to become the first Giants player to record at least 20 home runs and 20 steals in a season since Barry Bonds in 1998. ...

"I love the game, its the best job you can have," he explained Tuesday as the players left Joe Louis Arena for the summer. "Ill sit down with my wife and well go from there.UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- John Tortorella was pleased his Vancouver Canucks left Long Island with two points he felt they shouldve had two days earlier in Columbus. How they got these is another story. "I thought it was an absolute mess, right on through," the blustery coach said after the Canucks rallied for a 5-4 overtime victory against the New York Islanders on Tuesday night. "It seems like every time we come into this building ... it turns into a cluster." The Canucks erased a 2-0 deficit in the first period, a 3-2 hole in the second, and overcame a tying goal by the Islanders Frans Nielsen with 1:12 left in regulation. Vancouver improved to 3-1-1 on its seven-game trip that has two stops remaining. This win took a little bit of the sting off a 3-1 loss at Columbus on Sunday. "I give them credit," Tortorella said. "It was ugly. We made a ton of mistakes, they made a ton of mistakes, but we found a way to win. Thats what I was so disappointed in Columbus about. It was a game that good teams win. We didnt. "Tonight is another type of game where I think if youre going to get there in the end, you have to win." Brad Richardson provided the deciding goal, banking the puck in off Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov 2:16 into overtime with Vancouvers 33rd shot. The Islanders salvaged a point at the end of their 1-1-2 homestand when with Nabokov pulled, Nielsen fired the rebound of MacDonalds shot into the open left side, past the outstretched glove of Roberto Luongo to tie it at 4. "We found a way in the third period," Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. "We need some guys to play better. We need some guys to engage more if they want the ice time they want. That will be addressed." Chris Higgins had given the Canucks their first lead -- 4-3 -- with 17.2 seconds left in the second. He scored off a feed from defenceman Kevin Bieksa, who took the puck away from Brock Nelson in the New York zone. "It wasnt the prettiest one but well take it," said Higgins, a Long Island native with dozens of friends and family in attendance. "It was a bad game to watch but you have to grind out some ugly ones." Ryan Kesler scored his fourth of the season to get Vancouver on the board, and Daniel Sedin tied it 2-2 with his second 4:12 later. Vancouver will play on back-to-back days at New Jersey and St. Louis to finish this long trip. "As you go further and further, you wear down a bit. Its natural," Tortorella said. "Its a situation that teams have to fight through." New York grabbed the lead just 2:26 in on Nelsons first NHL goal and wwent ahead 2-0 just 2:15 after that on the first of Matt Moulsons two power-play goals. Anthony Tolliver Blazers Jersey.  Islanders captain John Tavares earned an assist to stretch his point streak to eight games, but New York finished its homestand 1-1-2. Vancouver started its comeback 16 seconds later, taking advantage of a shaky Nabokov, who made 28 saves. Moulson put New York back in front 4:48 into the second, but Henrik Sedin answered that one at 12:39. The Islanders looked ready to run the road-weary Canucks out of the Nassau Coliseum in Vancouvers first visit since a shootout win on Jan. 11, 2011. Cal Clutterbuck sent the puck behind the net from right-wing wall to Peter Regin, who carried it out by the left post and tried a jam shot. Nelson came to the right post and knocked in the rebound. New York struck again on its first power play after Higgins slashed Nielsen. Tavares sent a pass down to Nielsen near the left post, and he moved the puck across the crease to Moulson, who was first denied by Luongo but then knocked in the rebound. Islanders fans were still celebrating that one when Kesler cut the Canucks hole in half. Defenceman Dan Hamhuis fired a long shot from inside the Islanders zone that Nabokov blocked with his chest but couldnt control. The puck bounced into the slot, and Kesler beat New York defenceman Andrew MacDonald to it and knocked it past Nabokov. Nabokov wasnt any sharper a few minutes later when Jannik Hansen sent a pass from the right circle to Daniel Sedin in the left circle for a drive that sailed past the Islanders goalie to make it 2-2. The 38-year-old goalie has played in all but one of New Yorks nine games, but could soon lose playing time to backup Kevin Poulin. "Im not going to discuss the goaltending," Capuano said. "Poulin is going to get his chance shortly. If he plays well, hes going to play more." Luongo, the No. 4 pick in the 1997 NHL draft by the Islanders, found his game and made a pair of stellar saves to deny Moulson and Thomas Hickey to keep it tied before the intermission. Only Moulson had the touch to beat him again. Moulson let go a wrist shot from the right circle that found its way over Luongos glove and into the top right corner of the net. NOTES: Luongo improved to 8-10-3 against the Islanders in 24 games, the same number he played for them in his one season before being traded to Florida. ... Nelson was in the lineup for speedy RW Michael Grabner, who served the first game of a two-game suspension for hitting Carolina forward Nathan Gerbe in the head on Saturday. ... Canucks LW David Booth was a healthy scratch.         ' ' '
