A September call-up

DENVER (AP) —  http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-josh-allen-jersey ,
Noel Cuevas just wants to make an impact.With one choked-up swing, he delivered
in a most meaningful way — in the heat of a pennant race.The rookie pinch-hitter
bounced a go-ahead, two-run single through the middle in the eighth inning and
the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the San Francisco Giants 9-8 on Monday
after squandering a five-run lead.“He’s clutch, man,” Trevor Story said. “He’s
not scared.”This was just another wild game at Coors Field as the Rockies remain
in the thick of the NL West chase. They entered the day a half-game behind the
Los Angeles Dodgers.“You always have to grab on and hold on tight (at Coors
Field),” said catcher Drew Butera, who was making his Rockies debut after being
acquired from the Kansas City Royals last week. “Because anything can happen
here.”On an afternoon when Story hit two homers off Giants ace Madison Bumgarner
and the Rockies seemed in command at 7-2 after five innings, they needed the
rookie Cuevas to come through with that clutch hit.Ian Desmond started the
eighth with a single and pinch-hitter Chris Iannetta later lined a double off
the wall in right. Then, Cuevas stepped into the moment.He took a big first
swing off reliever Tony Watson (4-6) and whiffed. So Cuevas decided to choke up
on the bat and focus on going up the middle. It worked — a grounder through a
drawn-in infield.“No words for it Cheap

,” said Cuevas, who was with the team
earlier this season. “How much better can it get? It’s almost like a
walk-off.”Colorado had a 7-5 lead in eighth when Giants pinch-hitters Alen
Hanson and Chris Shaw hit back-to-back homers off reliever Seunghwan Oh (6-3).
Hanson tied the game at 7 on a two-run homer and three pitches later Shaw lined
an 0-2 cutter from Oh over the fence in right for his first career homer.“What a
great comeback. It was a shame we couldn’t hold on,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy
said. “We really came on strong at the end.”Wade Davis struck out the side in
the ninth for his 38th save.It’s a pivotal stretch for Colorado, which started
off 10 straight at home and all against NL West foes.“To go down late and come
back in the eighth, that was huge,” Story said. “Hopefully we can ride that
momentum through the homestand.”Colorado scored four times in the first off
Bumgarner, who threw 35 pitches in facing nine hitters. DJ LeMahieu and Story
each hit two-run homers in the inning.Story added a three-run homer off
Bumgarner in the fifth. The shortstop has a career-high 28 homers this
season.Gorkys Hernandez homered for the Giants, who’ve dropped 15 of 17 in
Denver since 2017.“These are the toughest ones to lose,” Hernandez said. “We
came back after being so far down and we couldn’t get the win.”TRAINER’S
ROOMGiants: OF Steven Duggar will undergo surgery on his left shoulder Tuesday.

soreness.Rockies: LHP Mike Dunn is planning to have season-ending shoulder
surgery. The reliever has been on the disabled list since July 7 with discomfort

runs Authentic

, six earned, over five innings. He
surrendered three homers in a game for the seventh time in his career.“My
command wasn’t very good at all,” Bumgarner said. “My stuff wasn’t very good. My
curveball felt pretty good, but everything else was left up. You have to be
better. Especially here.”PROGRESSRockies starter Tyler Anderson was in line for
his first win since July 4 before the bullpen melted down. Still, this was
progress. The left-hander hit an August slump in which he was 0-4 with an 11.39
ERA.Anderson had seven days off between starts and his command appeared back in
rhythm as he allowed three runs and struck out seven over 5 1/3 innings.“He
mixed speeds well,” Butera said. “He made some big pitches inside.”UP NEXTGiants

has a 6.75 ERA in 5 career starts at Miller Park, including a 9.82 ERA in 3
starts there over the last 3 seasons.But with few options ahead of Friday's
waiver trade deadline, the Brewers couldn't be picky as they continue to pursue
a National League playoff spot.
