Yuli Gurriel Jersey
DENVER — The Colorado Rockies clinched a spot in the postseason with a win Friday but are aiming to win the National League West for the first time rather than have to play a one-and-done wild-card game.To that end Brian McCann Jersey , the Rockies’ game Saturday with the Washington Nationals is vitally important. Jon Gray (12-8, 4.91) will start for the Rockies against Stephen Strasburg (9-7, 3.77).The Rockies won their season-high eighth consecutive game Friday night, beating the Nationals 5-2. That victory coupled with St. Louis’ 8-4 loss earlier in the day at the Chicago Cubs assured the Rockies of making the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time in their 26-year history.Article continues below ...With two games to play, the Rockies (90-70) lead the Los Angeles Dodgers by just one game and have their sights set on winning the division.Meanwhile, the Nationals (81-79) are highly motivated to block the Rockies’ road to the division crown. After Strasburg, the Nationals will send ace Max Scherzer to the mound Sunday in the final game of the regular season if the game has postseason implications for the Rockies.“I think we just got a lot of competitors,” Nationals shortstop Trea Turner said after Friday’s loss that ended Washington’s three-game winning streak. “The fact Max wants to pitch on that last day; there’s a possibility he’s going to pitch. That shows you want kind of competitor he is. The same with everybody in the lineup.“I think nobody wants to give anything away. If we win, we win. If we lose, we lose. But we’re definitely going to go out there and compete against these guys.”Strasburg, who was reinstated Aug. 21 after missing 29 games with a cervical nerve impingement, had a no-decision Monday against Miami. In a 7-3 win over the Marlins, Strasburg gave up three hits http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-verlander-jersey , four walks and one run in four innings with five strikeouts while throwing 100 pitches.Still, the short start kept Strasburg’s streak intact of allowing two or fewer earned runs in six straight starts, five of which the Nationals won. During that stretch, Strasburg is 3-0 with a 2.60 ERA.He’s 4-4 with a 4.19 ERA in nine starts against the Rockies, including a no-decision April 15 at Washington when he allowed four hits and four runs in six innings in the Rockies’ 6-5 win.Gray is 0-2, 6.48 in three starts against Washington, including a loss April 14 at Washington when he gave up eight hits and five runs in 5 2/3 innings as the Rockies fell 6-2.Gray is coming off an outstanding start Monday against Philadelphia where he gave up four hits and one run in seven innings with three walks and seven strikeouts in the Rockies’ 10-1 romp over the Phillies.In three previous starts, Gray had gone 0-1, 10.80, allowing 15 hits, including five homers, and nine walks in 10 innings with 11 strikeouts.Gray had seven days of rest before he took the mound against the Phillies and took advantage of the extra time to regroup. The Rockies pitching coaches worked with Gray to quicken his tempo on the mound, which Tyler Clippard Jersey , in turn, helped him simplify things and not think about his mechanics.Rockies manager Bud Black said Gray’s start against the Phillies “was big for Jon obviously in a number of areas. I thought he threw the ball well. The slider returned, and I think there was an uptick in the velocity. He was throwing the ball harder.”Black said Gray’s work on his tempo led to a quicker delivery out of the windup and out of the stretch as well.“We saw better pitches, so I think that played a big part,” Black said. “And I think once Jon got rolling, gained more confidence, it set a nice tone, hopefully, as it relates to this start.” ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Rougned Odor didn’t let a little rain get in the way of his torrid August.The Texas second baseman connected on a go-ahead, three-run homer with rain falling in the seventh inning, and the Rangers beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-2 on Sunday to wrap up a soggy weekend.Odor’s 15th home run of the season came minutes before the second rain delay of a game that started 13 hours after the previous night’s game ended. The Angels wrapped up that 11-7 win at 12:59 a.m. local time Sunday after a 2½-hour delay at the start.“We can’t change the weather,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “What’s going to happen is going to happen. It was just the way it was.”The rain had just started for the third time in Sunday’s regularly scheduled game when Odor pulled a pitch from reliever Noe Ramirez (4-4) into the seats above the Texas bullpen in right-center field.“We played through very similar conditions last night for seven innings http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-verlander-jersey ,” manager Jeff Banister said. “It’s another one of those situations to add to what (Odor) has been able to do this year to right the ship and move himself forward.”Odor, who had the most RBIs in the majors in August going into the game, added four to give him 23 for the month. His previous career high for a month was 18.A 24-year-old already in his fifth season, Odor is hitting .338 with a 1.094 OPS this month, and is up to .279 for the season. He didn’t get his batting average above .200 for good until late May.“You don’t get to this point without putting in the work,” Banister said. “Now, there are a number of things along the way. Whether, it’s did he get to a low point and go through some realization. Physically, he’s still the same talented, young player that we’ve seen.”Shohei Ohtani doubled and scored the run that put the Angels up 2-1 in the fourth inning.Three Texas relievers retired all nine hitters, starting with Matt Moore (3-6) in the seventh. The left-hander, who began the season in the Texas rotation before getting sent to the bullpen, won for the second time in the series.Cory Gearrin pitched the eighth Yuli Gurriel Jersey , and Jose Leclerc worked the ninth for his fifth save.Shin-Soo Choo had three hits and scored two runs, the first on Odor’s RBI single in the first inning.RAIN WON’T STAY AWAYThe delay after Odor’s homer lasted 56 minutes following an 18-minute stoppage moments after he grounded out to end the fifth, making the game official with the Angels leading 2-1.The sun came out before the tarp was in place for the first delay, and it was removed in less than 10 minutes. The game didn’t stop during a brief shower between the two delays.RUNS, NO HITSBoth Los Angeles runs came home without a hit in the fourth. Before Ohtani scored on Andrelton Simmons‘ double-play grounder, Albert Pujols drove in David Fletcher on a fielder’s choice when Fletcher avoided the tag by catcher Isiah Kiner-Falefa on a slightly wide throw from first baseman Ronald Guzman.IN A PINCHOhtani connected on his second pinch-hit homer of the season in Saturday’s win. He’s the first Angels player with two pinch homers in a season since Russell Branyan in 2011. The two-way Japanese star has reached in eight of 17 pinch-hit appearances.“Shohei is as prepared as any player I’ve seen, even more so,” Scioscia said. “But pinch-hitting is different than going up there and having four at-bats against a pitcher. There’s less margin of error as far as when you miss a pitch that you should hit. He’s been terrific.”TRAINER’S ROOMAngels: Ohtani threw 20 pitches Saturday in his third bullpen session in eight days. The right-hander is expected to face hitters at the club’s minor league facility in Arizona this week. Ohtani hasn’t pitched since June 6 because of a ligament sprain in his right elbow.Rangers: Banister said the club would wait until after flying to Oakland to determine whether 45-year-old right-hander Bartolo Colon can start the opener of the series against the Athletics on Monday. Colon was scratched from Sunday’s scheduled start because of back stiffness.UP NEXTRHP Felix Pena (1-3, 4.35 ERA) was announced as the Angels’ starter for the opener of a two-game series at Arizona on Tuesday. If Colon can’t start for Texas, Banister hasn’t indicated who would take his spot.
