PHILADELPHIA -- Cole Hamels used an amped-up fastball in his latest dominant performance. Hamels pitched eight strong innings and Chase Utley had a tiebreaking RBI single in the fifth inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 2-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday. Hamels (5-5) got the better of Tim Hudson in a matchup between starters who have combined for seven All-Star appearances. The Philadelphia left-hander gave up six hits while striking out 10 and walking one. More noted for his changeup, Hamels has found an extra gear for his fastball over his last two starts. After using it to shut down Atlanta in a 2-1 win last Saturday, Hamels frequently featured a heater that again touched the mid-90s. "Hes really gone with his fastball to set up his other pitches," Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Hes got everything behind him. Hes feeling very good; hes feeling strong." Added Hamels: "Everything was coming out the right way. I wasnt having to put as much effort into each pitch." Hudson (8-7) gave up two runs in six innings although both were unearned. The right-hander struck out six and walked two. "Youre hoping your guy gives you a chance, and thats what (Hudson) did," San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. "He pitched great." The Giants, who were looking for their first four-game sweep in Philadelphia since 1998, lost for just the second time in eight games. San Franciscos lead over the idle Dodgers in the NL West dropped to 1 1/2 games entering this weekends three-game series between the rivals at AT&T Park. Despite the defeat, the Giants return home feeling positive after a 5-2 road trip. "Thats a really good road trip," Bochy said. "Weve got a big series ahead of us. Its going to be a good, exciting series. Its what you play for." Utley, Marlon Byrd and Wil Nieves had a pair of hits for Philadelphia, which snapped its four-game losing streak while winning for just the second time in nine games. Jonathan Papelbon pitched a scoreless ninth for his 24th save in 27 opportunities to stop a rocky stretch. Papelbon blew his third save in Tuesdays 9-6, 14-inning defeat and took the loss in Wednesdays 3-1 loss. He was booed upon entering the field and then again when he was introduced by PA announcer Dan Baker. Papelbon pitched a 1-2-3 inning to tie Goose Gossage for 21st place on the all-time save list with career save No. 310. Philadelphia slugger Ryan Howard wasnt in the lineup for the second straight day as Sandberg has decided to look elsewhere to find production from first base. Howard has been in a power drought with just one homer since June 19 and his .224 average, .377 slugging percentage and .682 on-base plus slugging mark are well off his usual production. The move was eye-opening considering the three-time All-Star and former MVPs dominance against Hudson, against whom he has batted .328 with seven homers and 17 RBIs in 67 career at-bats. Howards replacement, Darin Ruf, went 1-for-4 with a strikeout. "I wanted to see (Ruf) play for a couple of games, get him some at-bats and basically go from there," Sandberg said. "Well continue to watch." Sandberg met with Howard prior to the game, and Howard said he wanted to be in the lineup. But the manager made no promises, adding that a platoon with the right-handed hitting Ruf was possible. "If he has trouble against left-handed pitching and Darin Ruf is swinging it, that becomes an option," Sandberg said. "If (a platoon) becomes the scenario and both guys are going well, thats a good scenario." The Phillies got some help on both of their runs off of Hudson. In the first, Jimmy Rollins hit a one-out double, went to third on a passed ball and scored on Byrds single to left. San Francisco tied the game in the fifth on Ehire Adrianzas RBI single to centre. Philadelphia got some more good fortune in the bottom of the frame as Ben Revere opened the inning with a medium flyball to left. Michael Morse charged hard but couldnt come up with the grab and the error allowed Revere to reach second. Revere scored on Utleys single to centre. Hamels went at least seven innings for the 13th time in the last 15 starts and gave up three runs or less for the 11th consecutive outing. The left-hander reached double-digits in strikeouts for the fourth time this season and 27th in his career. Hamels cooled off Hunter Pence, who went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts. Pence entered batting .412 with a homer and six RBIs in the series, including the game-winning double in Wednesdays 3-1 Giants victory. "I dont ever recall his fastball being as good as it was today," Hudson said. Nieves came up limping after moving awkwardly to block a fourth-inning pitch to Adam Duvall but stayed in the game. Nieves was activated Monday after spending a month on the DL with a strained right quad. NOTES: Adrianza strained his right hamstring running the bases in the fifth inning. Bochy said hell be evaluated further on Friday. ... The Giants open a pivotal three-game series at home against the rival Dodgers on Friday with San Francisco right-hander Tim Lincecum (9-6, 3.68) opposing Los Angeles right-hander Zack Greinke (11-6, 2.90). .

Seattle Seahawks superstar Richard Sherman, widely considered to be the leagues top cornerback, is carrying his war of words with Michael Crabtree into the off-season.GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Seattle Seahawks are dominating the NFC West. Thursday night in Arizona provided the latest evidence. Russell Wilson threw for three touchdowns, Marshawn Lynch rushed for 91 yards and Seattle beat the Cardinals 34-22. "This was a really cool night for our football team," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. "We wanted to get on the road and get this thing done and continue to feel good about our ability to win on the road." The Seahawks (6-1) intercepted two of Carson Palmers passes, converting both into touchdowns, and sacked him seven times, twice by Chris Clemons, who had been questionable for the game with a hyperextended elbow. Arizona (3-4) got a touchdown and one of its three field goals after Wilson twice fumbled while being sacked deep in Seattle territory. Palmer has thrown 11 interceptions in the last five games and 13 this season, second only to Eli Mannings 15. Seattle sent the Cardinals to their eighth straight loss against an NFC West foe. "We knew we needed to be great," Palmer said, "and we were not great today." Wilson completed 18 of 29 passes for 235 yards, with TD passes of 31 yards to Sidney Rice, 15 yards to Zach Miller and a yard to Kellen Davis. For the second game in a row, Wilson did not throw an interception. "The receivers did a good job staying alive," Wilson said. "Patrick Peterson is one of the best cornerbacks in the game and the guys made some plays on him." Palmer, 30 of 45 for 258 yards and a touchdown, was under duress most of the night, especially from the left side where young tackle Bradley Sowell struggled mightily. The Cardinals managed just 30 yards rushing on 18 attempts, adding to the pass protection woes. "When you get into that type of game and you get behind its going to be a struggle," Arizona coach Bruce Arians said, "but we have to figure out ways to start faster on both sides of the ball. I thought we came out sluggish." Seattle dominated the first half yet led only 17-10 at the break. Arizona, coming off a 32-20 loss at San Francisco on Sunday, took the opening kickoff and made it to its 40 before Tony McDaniel burst through virtually untouched to sack Palmer for a 14-yard loss. Seattle took the ensuing punt and needed just five plays to go 83 yards. Wilson, throwing off his back foot while retreating to his right, connected with Rice for 31 yards for the score. The next time Arizona had the ball, Palmer threw long to Fitzgerald, but Brandon Browner stripped the ball from the receiver and Seattles Earl Thomas gathered it in as he tumbled out of bounds. Initially it was ruled an incomplete passs, but the Seahawks challenged and the call was reversed to an interception at the Seattle 28.dddddddddddd Again, the Seahawks moved downfield, going 72 yards in 11 plays, Wilson throwing 15 yards to Miller and Seattle led 14-0. A strong defensive stand helped turn things around temporarily for the Cardinals. Seattle had it second-and-1 at its 43 but failed to get the first down on three straight runs. On fourth-and-inches, Wilson tried a sneak but was tackled by Calais Campbell well short of the marker. The Cardinals struggled 26 yards to set up Jay Feelys 49-yard field goal that cut it 14-3. After the kickoff, the Seahawks were at their 13 when, on second down, Matt Shaugnessy hit Wilson and the quarterback fumbled. Campbell recovered at the Seattle 3 and Rashard Mendenhall scored from there to cut it to 14-10. Steve Hauschkas 51-yard field goal with 5 seconds to go made it a seven-point game at the half. In the third quarter, Feelys 52-yard field goal cut it to 17-13, then Seattle went 80 yards in 10 plays. On third-and-3 from the Cardinals 48, Daryl Washington was bringing Wilson to the ground for an apparent sack when the quarterback got rid of the ball for a 6-yard completion to Miller. "I knew I wasnt down," Wilson said. "I just made a little shortstop flip to him. He made a great play." Arians called it "a huge play." "Most quarterbacks, the referee would have blown that down," Arians said. "Hes such a great athlete that Terry (McAulay) let him continue playing, and you just live with the call." Lynch bulled over the middle 17 yards to the 5 and on third-and-goal from inside the 1, Wilson threw to Davis in the back of the end zone for a touchdown to put the Seahawks up 24-13. After the kickoff, Browner stepped in front of Michael Floyd and intercepted, returning it 49 yards before stumbling down at the 1. Two plays later, Lynch scored on a 2-yard run and it was 31-13. John Abrahams second sack of the third quarter jarred the ball loose from Wilson and Shaugnessy recovered at the 15. But the Cardinals had to settle for Feelys 22-yard field goal to cut the lead to 31-16 with 14:41 remaining. Houschkas 42-yard field goal made it 34-16 with 10:21 to go. Arizona got a late TD on Palmers 8-yard pass to Jaron Brown. Notes: Seattle lost two players to hamstring injuries in the first half, strong safety Jeron Johnson and fullback Derrick Coleman. ... Abrahams first two sacks as a Cardinal give him 124 for his career, most among active players. ... Campbell played after being carted off the field in San Francisco on Sunday strapped down to a stretcher with what Arians said was a bruised spine.
