SAN DIEGO (AP) If he keeps pitching this well http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-robin-ventura-jersey ,
Derek Rodriguez will be in the discussion for the NL Rookie of the Year
Award.”That would be one thing that my dad never got, so that would be nice,”
Rodridguez, the son of Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez, said after pitching seven
strong innings in the San Francisco Giants‘ 3-2, 10-inning victory against the
staggering San Diego Padres on Tuesday.Brandon Crawford singled in the go-ahead
run with two outs in the 10th inning and Andrew McCutchen homered for the
Giants, who swept the two-game series and won their third straight
game.Rodriguez was in line for his sixth victory against one loss before Reyes
Moronta allowed the Padres to tie it at 2 in the eighth on Manuel Margot’s RBI
grounder.Rodriguez held San Diego to one run and three hits while striking out a
career-high seven and walking three. It was the second time in 10 big league
starts that he went seven innings.Rodriguez settled down after allowing Wil
Myers‘ single and Eric Hosmer’s RBI double with two outs in the first. The
Padres got a runner as far as second only one other time against Rodriguez.He
gave the Giants a solid effort a day after they had to go 13 innings to beat the
Padres. Rodriguez threw 112 pitches.”I just went out there and pitched my game.
They asked me in the top of the seventh if I felt good and I did and I went out
there for the seventh,” he said. ”I don’t think I’ve ever thrown that many
pitches in my life. That was a good one.”Manager Bruce Bochy marveled about how
reliable Rodriguez has been since making his big league debut on May 29. His
2.59 ERA ranks first among NL rookie pitchers.“It’s a shame we couldn’t get a
win for him with that effort,” Bochy said. ”But we had some tough luck. The
first five innings we hit the ball hard but didn’t have much to show for it. He
kept it close.”The Padres lost their seventh straight, dropped to 2-9 since the
All-Star break and lost for the 14th time in 16 games. San Diego finished July
at 5-20, their second worst month by percentage in club history.”It’s been a
struggle,” Padres manager Andy Green said. ”Those guys in there are giving
absolutely everything they’ve got. I think the harder thing for us has been
flushing the previous days and not letting that carry-over effect, kind of the
hangover effect, of not getting it done, impact the next day’s at-bats. It’s
human nature. As professionals at this level we got to do a better job flushing
that, leaving that behind.”Evan Longoria tripled leading off the 10th against
Phil Maton (0-2) and scored on Crawford’s single to right.Tony Watson (4-4)
pitched a perfect ninth for the win Early Wynn
, and Will Smith pitched the 10th for his sixth
save.McCutchen homered to right leading off the fifth versus lefty Clayton
Richard, his 11th. Gorkys Hernandez hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth.Richard
allowed two runs and five hits in five innings, walked three and struck out
one.Green said the pitching staff kept the team in the game.”Can’t expect a
staff to hold a team down into extra innings every single day and give the
opportunity to keep coming back,” he said. ”We’ve just got to string together a
lot more constructive at-bats if we want to win baseball games.”TRAINER’S
ROOMPadres: Placed rookie LHP Eric Lauer on the 10-day disabled list with a
strained left forearm and recalled RHP Walker Lockett from Triple-A
El-Paso.STILL HEREReliever Kirby Yates, who pitched the ninth, had been one of a
trio of Padres pitchers rumored to be on the trade block. None of them were
moved.”I mean, honestly I didn’t think anything was going to happen,” Yates
said. ”I want to be part of this movement that sticks around for the next few
years.”UP NEXTGiants: LHP Madison Bumgarner (3-4, 3.06) is scheduled to start
the opener of a four-game series at Arizona on Thursday night.Padres: LHP Robbie
Erlin (1-3, 3.47) is scheduled to start the opener of a four-game series at the
Chicago Cubs on Thursday night. He replaces Luis Perdomo, who went on the
disabled list with a shoulder injury Saturday.— DENVER (AP) — Charlie Blackmon
and his teammates walked around the field tossing T-shirts, replica jerseys,
lunch bags and backpacks into the sellout crowd.A more precious gift, though,
remains up for grabs — an NL West title.The playoff-bound Colorado Rockies are
headed to Los Angeles for a tiebreaking game to decide the division crown after
routing the Washington Nationals 12-0 on Sunday behind Blackmon’s cycle.“Not
many times in our past have we had a chance to play for a divisional title this
late in the season,” Trevor Story said.As in Avisail
Garcia Jersey
, never — Colorado (91-71) is trying for its first
division title.Tied atop the division with the Dodgers entering the last day,
the Rockies won for the ninth time in 10 games, while Los Angeles routed San
Francisco 15-0 to send the season to game 163.The one-game tiebreaker will be
Monday at Dodger Stadium, and the loser goes to the Chicago Cubs or Milwaukee
for Tuesday’s wild-card game.Walker Buehler will start for the Dodgers as the
defending NL champions try for a sixth straight West title. The Rockies will
counter with German Marquez, who struck out eight straight to begin his last
start.“It’s two of the best young starting pitchers in the big leagues pitching
in this type of game,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. “It’s great.”Nolan
Arenado hit two of the Rockies’ five homers and took over the National League
lead with 37, one more than teammate Trevor Story — who also went deep. David
Dahl homered for the sixth time in seven games.Blackmon finished his first
career cycle and the ninth in Rockies history with a double in the eighth. He
tripled in the first, homered in the third, singled in the fifth and struck out
in the sixth.“Charlie is a really hard worker and we understand how much work he
puts in,” Carlos Gonzalez said. “When he does something special on the field, we
all feel really proud.”Tyler Anderson (7-9) didn’t look the least bit bothered
by a sore shoulder that sidelined him for about a week. He scattered four hits
over 7 2/3 innings for his first win since July 4, combining with Seunghwan Oh
and Chris Rusin on a five-hitter.“He was efficient. He was throwing strikes in
good spots. That’s the type of game when he’s on that he can throw,” Black
said.Arenado got the Rockies rolling in the first, with a two-run shot off Erick
Fedde (2-4), who was starting after the Nationals elected to skip NL Cy Young
Award candidate Max Scherzer. Blackmon added a two-run drive in the third.Fedde
lasted four innings and gave up four runs in place of Scherzer, who wound up
with a big league-best 300 strikeouts.Colorado went 19-9 in September http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-frank-thomas-jersey ,
one shy of the team record set in 2007, when the Rockies made a late surge, beat
San Diego in a wild-card tiebreaker and reached the World Series for the only
time, only to be swept by Boston.Before the game, Story said he planned to do
sneak peeks at the large scoreboard in right field to see how the Dodgers were
faring. It wasn’t pretty, as Los Angeles scored early and often.Late in the
game, the fans chanted “Beat LA! Beat LA! Beat LA!” The only cheer louder was
the one Anderson received when he was taken out.“It was good to hear,” Anderson
said.Anderson appeared iffy for this start after complaining of shoulder
soreness that led him to be bumped from his outing last Monday. He steadily
progressed throughout the week.The left-hander was 0-6 with a 6.08 ERA over his
past 13 starts. But he found his command and worked out of trouble courtesy of
three double plays.Arenado and Story hit back-to-back homers in the seventh to
help the Rockies earn their 91st win of the season, which is the second-most in
team history. The record is 92 turned in by the 2009 team.Washington (82-80)
finished with a winning record for a seventh straight season.“The last two
months have been fun. I enjoyed it,” said Dave Martinez, who replaced Dusty
Baker as manager last offseason. “Unfortunately my first year as manager is over
and I’m looking forward to seeing my family.”HARPER’S FINAL NATS
AT-BAT?Soon-to-be free agent Bryce Harper doubled in perhaps his final Nationals
at-bat. He was 2 for 4 with two doubles.“Nobody knows if I’m going to be back or
nobody knows if I am going to be in a different uniform,” said the 2015 NL MVP,
who turns 26 next month. “If something happens, I am not afraid of change.”Asked
whether the outfielder remains in the team’s plans, general manager Mike Rizzo
said: “Of course he is in our plans. He’s a guy that we would love to have.”UP
