SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants manager Bruce Bochy didnt take kindly to what he believed were two intentional pitches thrown inside at Buster Posey, and wound up getting ejected for the first time this season.Brandon Crawford felt the same way and paid the Diamondbacks back the best way he could.Crawford drove in three runs and came within a triple of hitting for the cycle, Jeff Samardzija overcame a shaky first inning to win and San Francisco beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-2 on Friday night.Crawfords home run came shortly after Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin (4-7) threw two consecutive pitches that nearly hit Posey. The second went behind Posey and nearly hit him in the back, causing home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott to warn both dugouts.Bochy came out after Wolcott issued the warnings and was ejected.That kind of fired me up, Crawford said. When (Posey) walked I wanted to make them pay for doing that. Im not going to sugarcoat it, thats what I was going for.Brandon Belt walked four times and scored for the Giants after earlier in the day being voted by fans to fill the final spot on the NL roster for next weeks All-Star Game.Crawfords homer was his ninth of the season, and he also singled, walked and doubled.Corbins pitches close to Posey followed on the heels of Samardzija hitting Arizonas Jean Segura -- who homered leading off the game -- in the top of the second.I understand theyre not happy their guy got hit but I cant have Buster being a target, Bochy said. They threw once at him, throws another one thats up high at his back. Thats enough. Thats when guys get hurt.Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale, who was ejected in the fifth for arguing balls and strikes, defended Corbin.I just think he was trying to pitch in, Hale said. He was trying to pitch in and the ball got away a little bit.Samardzija (9-5) walked three and struck out six in 6 1/3 innings to win for the first time in four starts. The right-hander gave up two runs, both in the first inning. Samardzija also scored the go-ahead run on a throwing error after doubling leading off the fifth.Three relievers completed the seven-hitter.It was a tough way to start the game but I like the way it finished, Samardzija said.Crawford had an RBI single in the third, walked in the fifth and doubled in the seventh.Corbin allowed five runs over 4 2/3 innings. The left-hander walked five with one strikeout.Gregor Blanco hit a pinch-hit home run in the eighth for the Giants.After the game the Diamondbacks announced they traded closer Brad Ziegler to the Boston Red Sox for two prospects.HITTING PITCHERSCorbin and Samardzija earn their money on the mound but both continue to show their skills at the plate. Corbin singled in the second inning to give him 13 hits this season, tops among all pitchers in the majors.

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Canadian basketball prospect Andrew Wiggins told a small gathering of family and friends at his high school gym Tuesday that he will play at Kansas. Then the Huntington Prep star signed his letter-of-intent and officially became a Jayhawk. No big speech. No bands, live TV coverage or props. Just the way Wiggins wanted it. And just like that, Lawrence, Kan., became more of a focal point for the upcoming college basketball season. "Im looking forward to getting there and just doing my thing," Wiggins said. The six-foot-eight Vaughan, Ont., native chose Kansas over Kentucky, North Carolina and Florida State. Wiggins said there wasnt one particular selling point, taking into account each schools coaching staff, players and program. "I just followed my heart," he said. Hell join one of the top recruiting classes in the country. "I really thought it was one of those long shots, at least when we first got involved," Kansas coach Bill Self said. "The more we hung around, the more we felt he liked us. There was (a) little bit of a connection." Despite the loss of Ben McLemore to the NBA draft, four of Kansas five recruits are considered to be in the top 50 nationally, including guards Conner Frankamp and Wayne Selden, forward Brannen Greene and centre Joel Embiid. Wiggins parents both attended Florida State, and the Seminoles had signed his Huntington Prep teammate and fellow Toronto native, Xavier Rathan-Mayes. Wiggins father is former NBA first-round pick Mitchell Wiggins. His mother, Marita Payne-Wiggins, was a Canadian Olympic sprinter and silver medallist . Older brother Nick plays guard at Wichita State and another brother, Mitchell Jr., plays at NAIA school Southeastern University in Lakeland, Fla. "Florida State was great for mom, it was great for dad," Mitchell Wiggins said. But he recalled telling his son, "its your time. Its not 20-30 years ago. And Florida State (would have been) a great choice." But the father said Kansas will "be a great fit. Hopefully Andrew stays humble, stays hungry. Well see how it plays out." Tuesdays brief ceremony ended the frenzied pursuit of Wiggins, who averaged 23.4 points and 11.2 rebounds per game this season. Rather than turn his announcement into a spectacle, Wiggins wanted a private signing ceremony where he attends classes at St. Josephs Central Catholic High School in Huntington. "I didnt really want to open it up to the public," he said. "I knew it would be jam packed in here. I wanted people who appreciated me and people I appreciate to be here watching me. I wanted a lot of people I kknew.ddddddddddddquot; Initially rated as a 2014 prospect, Wiggins shot to the top of recruiting charts when he decided last October to reclassify into his original high school class of 2013. The four major recruiting services rated Wiggins as the No. 1 overall recruit. Interest grew in recent weeks. As one fan told Wiggins in a Twitter post, "Youre driving 4 schools and 4 fan bases absolutely insane." Wiggins had kept quiet on his intentions. He had yet to even make a verbal commitment and delayed his signing until almost the very end -- Wednesday is the deadline for recruits to sign with NCAA Division I schools. "This is the way I like it to be done -- on my own time," he said. "Ive got a weight lifted off my shoulders. I can relax now." Self said Wiggins "did exactly what we said he was going to do. He told us he was going to take his time. He was going to process everything. So him taking his time wasnt a shock. ... I thought it was a classy, cool way to do it, when kids are seeking more attention these days." Wiggins game did the talking. He has the ability to make shots from all angles and distances, blow past defenders to the basket and reach the rim at eye level. Wiggins was the recipient of this years Gatorade Boys National Basketball Player of the Year and Naismith Foundation national awards. He has been called the best prep prospect since LeBron James. "Im hearing the LeBron comparison and I saw LeBron play some high school, and Im not sure thats a fair comparison to anyone," Self said. "But from a pure athletic ability, he (Wiggins) is one of the most pure athletes the college game has had for a while." Wiggins participated in several post-season all-star games, most recently playing for the World Select Team at the Nike Hoop Summit April 20 in Portland, Ore. Wiggins cited fatigue from the Oregon trip for cancelling scheduled visits from Self, North Carolina coach Roy Williams and Florida States Leonard Hamilton. Wiggins instead talked to them by phone. Kentucky coach John Calipari had visited Wiggins in Huntington on March 28. "When he announced it, it wasnt the one I thought he would pick," said Wiggins high school coach, Rob Fulford, who felt the player would choose Florida State. "But I wasnt surprised. All four have advantages over the others in some way." Wiggins said he planned to relax at home and train with his brothers and some friends during the next few months. Self said hes not sure when Wiggins will arrive in Lawrence because of the possibility of Wiggins involvement in some Canadian national teams over the summer. ' ' '
