Nolan Arenado hated his first career appearance
HOUSTON (AP) — at designated hitter Tuesday night.However Chris Davis Jersey , the Colorado slugger couldn’t be mad at his results at the plate.Arenado and Trevor Story each went deep, German Marquez pitched well in a clash with Justin Verlander, and the Rockies beat the slumping Houston Astros 5-1.Colorado trailed by 1 and Verlander (11-8) had retired 13 of 14 when DJ LeMahieu singled with two outs in the sixth inning. Arenado then smacked a 96 mph fastball into the third row in right field for his 30th homer to put Colorado up 2-1.Arenado, who has spent his entire six-year career playing in the National League with Colorado, had made each his 825 career appearances at third base entering Tuesday’s game.“It was awful,” he said of not playing defense. “I didn’t like it. I hope I never have to DH.”His work at the plate made him the fourth player in franchise history to hit at least 30 homers in four straight years. Arenado didn’t think it was gone when he hit it and had to wait for the crowd’s reaction to know for sure.“It got caught in the lights and then I heard the crowd go: ‘oh’ and that’s when I knew it was still going,” he said. “I just tried to stay on top of the ball.”Houston has matched a season high with five straight losses and extended its home skid to nine games, its longest of the season.Oakland beat Seattle later Tuesday to move within a game of Houston in the AL West. The Astros have been in first place since June 14 and led the division by six games in late July.“You feel like nothing’s going your way and you’re a little snake-bitten,” manager A.J. Hinch said. “We’re going to have to do more, obviously, and it’s a challenge for me and our coaching staff to get more out of these guys to have a little bit more fun, a little bit more life. This is a very, very tough game and we’re getting beat up, mentally and physically.”The Rockies have won four in a row after losing the previous three and improved to 12-5 against the AL this season to set a franchise record for interleague victories.Collin McHugh took over from Verlander for the seventh and hit Ryan McMahon with a pitch. Tony Wolters lined a double to right field with one out to score McMahon and push the lead to 3-1.Story http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-j.j.-hardy-jersey , who had two hits, made it 4-1 when he connected off Brad Peacock on his 25th home run with two outs in the eighth inning.Ian Desmond tripled and scored on a single by Charlie Blackmon to extend the lead in the ninth.Marquez (10-9) allowed just three hits and a run while fanning seven in seven innings.Verlander was denied his 200th win again as he dropped his second straight despite striking out 11 in six innings, allowing six hits and two runs.After being swept in a four-game series against the Mariners this weekend, Houston’s woes continued against the Rockies after a day off Monday. The top three batters in the order went 0 for 11 on a night the Astros managed just three hits as they look for a way to jumpstart their once-powerful offense with reigning AL MVP Jose Altuve out indefinitely with a sore knee.Marquez walked two Astros and plunked Yuli Gurriel in the first four innings, but Houston didn’t get a hit until Gurriel tripled on a ball to right-center field to start the fifth. Josh Reddick followed with a liner to right to put the Astros up 1-0.The Astros had a chance to add on in the eighth when Marwin Gonzalez doubled with no outs. Reddick reached on catcher’s interference with one out, but Marquez retired the next two batters to end the threat and his night.TRAINER’S ROOMAstros: OF George Springer (sprained left thumb) went through a full workout Tuesday and should be able to come of the disabled list when he’s eligible on Friday. … Altuve, who has been out since July 25, has been running on the treadmill and is expected to begin hitting soon. Manager A.J. Hinch said there still isn’t a timetable for his return. … RHP Lance McCullers (right elbow discomfort) began playing catch Tuesday in the first step toward his return. … C Brian McCann, who has been out since June 30 with a knee injury which required surgery, will begin an extended rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Fresno on Thursday.MILESTONE VICTORYThe win was the 800th in manager Bud Black’s career.UP NEXTHouston’s Gerrit Cole (10-5, 2.75 ERA) opposes Colorado left-hander Tyler Anderson (6-4, 3.94) when this series wraps Wednesday night. Cole looks to bounce back after losing his third straight start by giving up six hits and four runs in 7 1/3 innings of a 5-2 loss to Seattle on Friday. 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 Cal Ripken Jersey , 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,” 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 http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-j.j.-hardy-jersey , won for the second time in the series.Cory Gearrin pitched the eighth, 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.
