No pitcher homers on Thursday. Just a well-played game for Nolan Arenado and company.
Gerardo Parra and Raimel Tapia had pinch-hit RBI singles in Colorado’s three-run sixth inning, helping the Rockies to a 5-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Colorado took two of three for its first series win against Arizona since May 5-7, 2017. The Rockies hit five homers in a 19-2 victory Wednesday night, including the first career drive for right-hander German Marquez, but they took the finale behind a timely rally and solid Chris Thompson Jersey defense.
They’ve given us a really hard time, so to win a series finally at home against them feels really good, Arenado said.
Trevor Story homered http://www.redskinsnflofficialonline.com/Nike-Chris-Thompson-Jersey.html for the Rockies, and Kyle Freeland pitched six-hit ball into the sixth inning. DJ LeMahieu had two hits and drove in a run.
Colorado trailed 1-0 before its rally in the sixth.
Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray (3-2) hit Carlos Gonzalez and walked Chris Iannetta with one out before he was replaced by Silvino Bracho, who was called up before the game. http://www.officialmarinershops.com/Robinson_Cano_Jersey Parra then hit a tying single to right, and Tapia followed with another single off Andrew Chafin. LeMahieu drove in Parra with a sacrifice fly.
Those are my nightmares. Righty, top-spinner, those are always the ones you get uncomfortable with.
Syndergaard (4-1, 3.06 ERA) is expected to make his first start in seven weeks when he opposes the Nationals’ Tanner Roark (3-11, 4.76) in a battle of right-handers.
The Nationals won the series opener Thursday night, when Anthony Rendon homered in his first two at-bats before Harper accounted for the decisive runs by launching a long two-run homer off Mets left-hander Jerry Blevins in the seventh inning of a 5-4 victory.
Harper is in the midst of a difficult campaign for the Nationals (47-46). He has 23 homers and 53 RBI, but is Robinson Cano Jersey batting .213, which would be a career-low by 30 points, and his .840 OPS is 168 points lower than a year ago. Washington manager Dave Martinez, though, said he thought the left-handed-hitting slugger might have unlocked something against Blevins.
He was really quiet (in the at-bat), Martinez said. Those are the kind of at-bats that might turn things around for him. Left on left, Blevins is not an easy guy to face, and he crushed the ball. So hopefully that’ll get him going here the next few days. He gets the All-Star break and then we’ll see what happens after that.
Getting Syndergaard going is likely one of the few things the Mets (37-54) have to look forward to the remainder of the season. New York has gone 12-32 since Syndergaard’s most recent start May 25, when he gave up three runs over six innings against the Milwaukee Brewers and didn’t factor into the decision as the Brewers earned a 4-3, 10-inning win.
