Postby laiyongcai92 » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:13 pm

DENVER (AP) — For an encore Miguel Andujar Jersey , one that was even more memorable than the first.McMahon hit a three-run home run with two outs in the ninth inning — his second go-ahead homer in as many nights — and the Colorado Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Saturday night.“I thought last night was the greatest night of my life,” McMahon said. “Shortly after, I found out this was. It was pretty cool.”McMahon’s drive off reliever J.T. Chargois (2-4) cleared the right-field wall just above the out-of-town scoreboard. He hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh inning of Friday night’s 5-4 victory over the Dodgers.“These wins mean a lot,” said Carlos Gonzalez, who had two hits. “We’ve had some tough losses recently, and being able to catch our breath, with a win like we had tonight, and the last win too, when Mac hit that home run late, it’s a great feeling. It’s what a really good team needs to take the next step.”Bryan Shaw (4-5) picked up the victory with an inning of scoreless relief for the Rockies, who moved within 1½ games of their NL West rivals. The Dodgers are tied with the Arizona Diamondbacks for the division lead.The Rockies, who were missing All-Star Nolan Arenado in the starting lineup because of a shoulder injury, were handcuffed most of the night by Walker Buehler, who pitched seven scoreless innings. He struck out six, walked three and benefited from three double plays.With regular closer Kenley Jansen on the disabled list because of an irregular heartbeat, the Dodgers turned first to Caleb Ferguson, who pitched a hitless eighth. Scott Alexander fanned Gonzalez to start the ninth and was relieved by Chargois after giving up a double to Trevor Story.“Obviously http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-khris-davis-jersey , you don’t have that guy that has proven to get out of the ninth inning,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “That’s where we are at right now. We talked about closer by committee and giving guys opportunities. And the matchups that we feel will give us the best chance to get the last three outs.”Chargois hit pinch-hitter Arenado with a pitch before getting Ian Desmond to ground into a fielder’s choice for the second out in the ninth.That brought up McMahon, who connected on a 1-0 offering, triggering an exuberant celebration around the plate. He tossed his batting helmet in the air and was doused with water and popcorn as he got bear hugs from his teammates.“I was trying to attack Arenado with sliders and get ahead of him. It didn’t work out,” Chargois said. “I battled with Desmond and got a ground ball. I left that pitch up to McMahon.”Kyle Freeland struck out a career-high 10 in seven innings, allowing a pair of runs on six hits, but got into early trouble.Freeland allowed a double to Manny Machado, followed by a run-scoring triple to Justin Turner in the first.Yasiel Puig then connected on a 1-2 offering in the second, driving it deep into the left field bleachers for his 15th homer.TRAINER’S ROOMDodgers: C Austin Barnes started in place of Yasmani Grandal, who was given a day off. … LHP Alex Wood (hamstring) is expected to reinstated from the 10-day disabled list and start Tuesday’s game against the San Francisco Giants. … LHP Julio Urias took another step in his rehab from June 2017 shoulder surgery when he pitched 1 1/3 innings for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga on Friday night.Rockies: Arenado was held out of the starting lineup because of a right shoulder strain that also forced him to leave Friday night’s game early.UP NEXTDodgers: LHP Rich Hill (5-4, 3.62 ERA) makes his first at Coors Field in 10 years. He last pitched at the hitter-friendly park on April 23, 2008, for the Chicago Cubs, when he allowed two runs on three hits in five innings.Rockies: RHP Chad Bettis (5-2, 5.67 ERA) is slated to make his second start since being reinstated from the 10-day DL. Bettis, who returned from a blister on his right middle finger, allowed a season-high nine runs in 4 2/3 innings in a loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday. NEW YORK (AP) Booed as he walked off the Yankee Stadium mound in the third inning, Sonny Gray smiled.A few moments later Kendall Graveman Jersey , third base coach Phil Nevin screamed at players in the New York dugout.The Yankees headed to their four-game series at Fenway Park after perhaps their worst performance this season, a 7-5 defeat Wednesday to the Baltimore Orioles, who have the worst record in the major leagues. And to Alex Cobb, who leads the big leagues in losses .”We’re a lot better than what we did today,” Nevin said. ”People have different ways of firing guys up. I think that was my first one this year, I guess.”Gleyber Torres raised his homer total to 17 with a solo shot in the second and a three-run drive in the ninth , but the rookie second baseman also failed to cover first base on Caleb Joseph’s second-inning bunt and second on Renato Nunez’s third-inning grounder to shortstop, leading to hits both times.Gray (8-8) may have lost his rotation spot after putting New York in a 7-1 deficit. Lance Lynn followed with 4 1/3 scoreless innings in his Yankees debut and first regular-season relief appearance since 2012, and manager Aaron Boone wouldn’t commit to staying with Gray .”That’s something that we’ll talk about now in the hours ahead, days ahead about what our plans will be going forward,” Boone said.On an afternoon that began with a partly sunny sky, Gray left under dark clouds just before a 39-minute rain delay.He tied his career high by allowing seven runs, giving up eight hits and two walks in 2 2/3 innings as his ERA rose to 5.56. Gray wiped his faced as he left the mound, adjusted his cap and then smirked when fans jeered.”I’ve never been a guy to come off the field and throw a glove or throw a hat or punch something or do anything,” Gray said. ”I’ve always been a mellow guy that tries to think things through and get over it.”Gray said fans shouldn’t question his desire because of his demeanor.”You can go around and ask the 24 other guys in this clubhouse who I am, what kind of person I am, what I’m about, and they’ll tell you http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-canseco-jersey ,” he said. ”You’ve seen me do that before.”He is 12-15 with a 4.85 ERA since he was acquired from Oakland at last year’s trade deadline. His ERA this year is 7.71 at Yankee Stadium and 3.62 on the road.”I’ve struggled. I don’t know if it has anything to do with New York, or it’s just strictly on the field,” he said.Then a 19-year-old at Vanderbilt, Gray tweeted on Oct. 29, 2009, that ”You have to be really good to get all of Yankee stadium to boo you as you’re walking off the mound…and a hall of famer to smile about it.” That was when Pedro Martinez lost World Series Game 2 to New York.Gray was asked about another tweet, one from Sept. 12, 2012, that said ”1. You didn’t go to college. 2. You are black.” He said the tweet, since deleted, was a response to Rashun Dixon, a teammate in the Oakland minor league system whose brother Anthony played in the NFL.”That’s an inside joke,” Gray said. ”And if people are trying to dig stuff up, then ask Sir Peanut. He’s one of my best friends,” referring to Dixon by his Twitter handle.New York (68-38) dropped 5 1/2 games behind Boston (75-34). This is the first time since the leagues split into divisions in 1969 that two teams in the same division began August with a winning percentage .640 or higher, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.Boone, a laid-back Californian, understood the eruption by the extroverted Nevin.”Over the course of the season you’re going to have outbursts from guys http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-jed-lowrie-jersey , from coaches, from me, whatever, so just emotion of the season, of the game,” he said.First baseman Greg Bird said the lashing was needed.”We were dragging a little bit today,” he said.Baltimore, which traded six veterans for prospects in recent weeks, took a 5-0 lead in the second . Trey Mancini hit a run-scoring single , and Joseph reached on a bunt single as third baseman Miguel Andujar delayed his throw because Torres didn’t sprint to cover first.Renato Nunez followed with a two-run double over a shallow Shane Robinson in right , and Tim Beckham had a two-run single .Torres led off the bottom half with his first home run since July 1 , and Cobb (3-14) struck out Giancarlo Stanton to end the inning , leaving the Yankees 0 for 15 with four sacrifice flies in their last 19 plate appearances with the bases loaded.Mancini homered in the third , and Breyvic Valera greeted Lynn with a grounder to Didi Gregorius. The shortstop looked to second for a force, saw Torres wasn’t there, and then threw too late to first as another run scored .”I know I missed a couple plays,” Torres said. ”I feel pretty bad.”Torres, 21 Tony Phillips Jersey , was a shortstop until last year.”A lot of that is youthfulness, his inexperience at the position, the nuances where you just do things all the time, second nature,” Boone said.Andujar hit a based loaded-single against Mychal Givens in the eighth, but Paul Fry got pinch-hitter Neil Walker to ground into an inning-ending double play. After Torres’ two-out homer against Mike Wright Jr. , Bird followed a game-ending popup.Lynn threw 71 pitches, which rules him out for a start at Boston. But he could be in the rotation soon.”When they’ve told me I go pitch, I go pitch,” he said.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: Boone said the team will not know until Thursday at the earliest whether LHP J.A. Happ will recover from hand, foot and mouth disease in time to start Saturday.UP NEXTYankees: LHP CC Sabathia (6-4) starts the opener against Boston and LHP Brian Johnson (1-3), who pitches in place of injured ace Chris Sale.—
