CHICAGO - Jake Peavy is showing signs of getting back on track, and his timing couldnt be better for the San Francisco Giants. Devon Travis Jersey . The 33-year-old right-hander pitched seven solid innings in his fifth start with San Francisco, and the Giants rolled past the Chicago Cubs 8-3 on Wednesday, hours after they won a protest regarding a rain-shortened loss from the night before. Peavy (2-3) has won two straight after losing his first three starts with San Francisco following a July 26 trade from Boston where he was 1-9. "I never gave up hope or thought I wasnt going to win," Peavy said. "I didnt really do anything different tonight other than just the team scored and made my job a whole lot easier. "Weve got five or six more starts and Ive got to try to find a way to win those with us trying to get in (the playoffs)." Peavy allowed 10 hits, struck out eight and walked none. Chris Valaikas two-run homer in the second inning accounted for the only runs against him. Hunter Pence and Andrew Susac homered, and Travis Ishikawa drove in three runs with pair of doubles among three hits to help the Giants strengthen their hold on an NL wild card spot. The Cubs Luis Valbuena added a solo homer and a triple in going 3 for 4. Struggling starter Edwin Jackson (6-14) was hit hard in just 2 2-3 innings, his shortest outing of the season. He allowed seven runs, eight hits and two walks. Jackson has lost seven of eight decisions. "Its just terrible," Jackson said. "Theres no excuse for it, pretty much. Tonight I didnt help myself. I didnt help my team." Before the game, the Giants won their protest filed with Major League Baseball over Tuesday nights rain-shortened loss that was called in the fifth inning. A problem in getting the tarp onto the field caused unplayable conditions, and the game was ruled a 2-0 Cubs win after a delay of over four hours. The suspended game will be completed on Thursday before the regularly scheduled game between the teams. "We needed Jake to get somewhat deep in the game," manager Bruce Bochy said. "A long day tomorrow. We have a lot of innings to play." MLB ruled the tarp hadnt been properly put away after its previous use, and therefore there was a "malfunction of a mechanical field device under control of the home club." MLB said this was the first successful protest since 1986. On Wednesday, the Giants jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning as five of their first six batters reached base. Ishikawa drove in two runs with his first double to cap the outburst. Ishikawa doubled in another run in the third and scored on Susacs first career homer as San Francisco opened a 7-2 lead. Pence led off the fourth against Carlos Villenueva with his 17th homer of this season to make it 8-2. UP NEXT The suspended game will resume on Thursday with the Cubs batting in the bottom of the 5th inning and leading 2-0. San Franciscos Yesmeiro Petit (3-3, 3.89) and Chicagos Jacob Turner (4-7, 5.80) will step in to start that one. In the regularly scheduled game, Giants LHP Madison Bumgarner (13-9, 3.14) is slated to face Cubs LHP Travis Wood (7-10, 4.86). TRAINERS ROOM Giants: C Buster Posey was out of the lineup because of soreness in his left hip. Bochy likened it to an unscheduled day off and expected Posey to be back behind the plate on Thursday. Posey is batting .278 with 13 home runs. He was replaced by Susac. Cubs: SS Starlin Castro was a last-minute scratch from the lineup due to a family emergency. The team didnt provide details or say how long he would be out, but said it was likely hed be placed on the bereavement list. LHP Felix Doubront, placed on the DL with a left calf strain on Aug. 1, threw on the side on Wednesday. He is expected to make another rehab start at Double-A Tennessee on Sunday or Monday. Manager Rick Renteria said Doubront, acquired from Boston on July 30, is in line to be recalled and start on Aug. 30 when the Cubs play a doubleheader at St. Louis. BALLPARK WATER-GATE The infield was still damp and the areas under the stands at century-old Wrigley Field reeked of mould even more than usual following Tuesdays nights downpour that led to the game being called at 1:16 a.m. The storm apparently was very localized. Cubs GM Jed Hoyer said it didnt rain at his house, some 12 blocks from the ballpark.Josh Donaldson Jersey . -- Antoine Bibeau bought the Val-dOr Foreurs valuable time at the Memorial Cup with his 51-save shutout Friday. Aaron Sanchez Jersey .com) - Generally you want to be the guy who replaces the guy who replaced the legend.INDIANAPOLIS - Andrew Luck took advantage of every opportunity Washington provided.He exploited the Redskins blown coverages. He watched Coby Fleener turn a missed tackle into a 73-yard score. He enjoyed watching linebacker DQwell Jackson break open the game with a 35-yard fumble return in the third quarter.And now, after throwing for 370 yards and a career high five touchdowns on Sunday in a 49-27 victory over Washington, Luck expects the Colts to keep it up.I think we have incredibly explosive players all over the field, Luck said. You see a running back take it for 60-some yards to the house. You see Fleener run by defensive backs. You see our wide outs making monstrous plays.The combination made Indianapolis (8-4) virtually impossible to defend.Fleener had four catches for 127 yards with two TD catches, becoming the first tight end since Rich Caster in 1972 to have TD catches of 30 or more yards and 70 or more yards in the same game.Rookie Donte Moncrief had three catches for 134 yards, scoring on plays of 48 and 79 yards.Running back Daniel Boom Herron scored on a career-long touchdown of 49 yards to give Indy a 14-3 lead.Luck continued to pile up the milestones, too. He broke Peyton Mannings franchise record for most 300-yard games in a season (10), became the fifth quarterback since 1970 to win 30 games in his first three seasons, joined Manning and Dan Marino as the only players in NFL history with 4,000 yards in two of their first three seasons, and joined Manning and John Unitas as the only Colts quarterbacks with 30 TD passes in a season.His first TD pass, the 30-yarder to Fleener, gave Indy a 7-3 lead. His second, a 3-yarder to T.Y. Hilton made it 21-3. The third and fourth, a 48-yarder to Moncrief and the 73-yarder to Fleener broke open the game, and the last one to Moncrief made it 49-24 early in the fourth.Washington didnt have an answer. Colt McCoy was 31 of 47 for a career high 392 yards annd three touchdowns — also a career-high and one more than Robert Griffin III threw this season before getting benched — the Redskins (3-9) couldnt keep up. Justin Smoak Jersey. Washington has lost four straight.A lot of teams look good in a quarter, a drive or a half or maybe a couple games even, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. Really good teams can do it week-in and week-out, and thats what were trying to figure out.Here are some other takeaways from Sundays game.JOB SECURITY: McCoy didnt get the win, but he certainly got Grudens endorsement to start next week. While Gruden acknowledged he would have done something things differently during the game, in terms of play calls and execution, he liked the way McCoy competed.TURNOVER TROUBLE: Colts coach Chuck Pagano spent all week preaching the importance of taking care of the ball, then watched the Colts give it away on their first two series. Herron also lost a fumble. Afterward, Pagano again started talking about the necessity of ball protection — something the Colts must fix before the playoffs.INJURY PROBLEMS: The long list of injured players certainly hurt Grudens team Sunday. They could have a long lasting impact, too. The list includes: Receiver DeSean Jackson, bruised leg; cornerback Chase Minnifield, concussion; safety Brandon Meriweather, sprained toe; linebacker Will Compton, sprained cervical spine; defensive lineman Kedric Golston, lower back; linebacker Keenan Robinson, medial collateral ligament in his knee; linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, wrist.UP-AND-DOWN Defence: The Colts allowed just 92 yards in the first half. In the second half, they gave up 333 yards and 17 points, a reflection of some of the problems that have popped up this season. While Pagano said Indys defence was on the field a long time in the second half because of the big plays, he wants to see more consistency.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL ;Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
