DENVER (AP) — resence felt down the stretch.Rookie infielder Ryan McMahon had a pinch-hit home run and Carlos Gonzalez tripled with the bases loaded during a five-run seventh inning that carried NL West leading Rockies past the San Francisco Giants 6-2 on Tuesday night.David Dahl Cheslor Cuthbert Jersey
, who played in only 19 minor league games last season because of a stress reaction in his rib cage after making his major league debut late in 2016, also homered for the Rockies. On Monday, rookie Noel Cuevas had a pinch-hit two-run single to make the difference in a 9-8 win over the Giants.Colorado, bidding for its first NL West title, has a lead in the division in September or October for the first time since 1995. It was the fourth straight loss for the Giants, who also have lost six in a row to Colorado.“It’s just a really good group, especially the contributions we’re getting from the young guys,” Gonzalez said after the Rockies’ 40th come-from-behind win of the season. “Yesterday was Cuevas. Tonight was McMahon with a huge home run to tie the game. After that, we were able to keep the momentum going, getting guys on and trying to get that big hit.”Rockies starter German Marquez had shut down the Giants since allowing a run in the first inning, striking out 11 over 6 2-3 innings. But with two outs and the bases clear in the seventh, Gorkys Hernandez snapped a 1-1 tie with his second home run in as many games.That set the stage for a rally in the bottom of the seventh by the Rockies, who batted around after being limited to a run in six strong innings by Dereck Rodriguez.With one out Brian Flynn Jersey
, McMahon drove an 0-1 offering from reliever Reyes Moronta (5-2) over the wall in straightaway center for his second pinch homer of the season.“Honestly, I was just trying to get a knock for the team and get the next guy up there,” McMahon said. “It just worked out. Marquez went out there and pitched so well. He’s been amazing. We were just out there and we were going to grind through it. This team is pretty resilient. It’s a fun group to be around.”An infield single by Charlie Blackmon — his third hit of the game — and walks to D.J. LeMahieu and Nolan Arenado loaded the bases before Gonzalez tripled to the wall in center off Ty Blach.Pinch-hitter Gerardo Parra drew a bases-loaded walk off Sam Dyson to drive in the final run of the inning to vault the Rockies into a four-run lead.“It’s a shame that we can’t hold onto some of these games, certainly when he’s pitching,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of the effort by Rodriguez. “What a nice job he did.”Chris Rusin (2-2) got the final out in the seventh for the victory. Adam Ottavino and Wade Davis each pitched scoreless innings to finish up.Gregor Blanco singled to lead off the game and stole second before Joe Panik followed with an RBI single. The Rockies evened the score when Dahl started the second with a home run, his ninth of the season.TRAINING ROOMGiants: CF Steven Duggar underwent season-ending surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. “All went well,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “He came out of it fine.” Duggar suffered the injury a week ago diving back into second base. He’s expected to be ready in time for spring training.GIANTS MOVES: RHP Jeff Samardzija (right shoulder inflammation) has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list and INF Abiatal Avelino had his contract purchased from Triple-A Sacramento. He is awaiting his major league debut.ROCKIES MOVES: RHP D.J. Johnson had his contract selected from Triple-A Albuquerque and is making his debut on a major league roster. INF Garrett Hampson, LHP Sam Howard and OF Ramiel Tapia were all recalled from Albuquerque.

DETROIT (AP) Mike Fiers got the Detroit Tigers off to a nice start. Too for him, it didn’t last long.Fiers exited soon after being hit in the left shin in the second inning, and the Detroit Tigers relied on their bullpen to beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-4 Wednesday for a two-game series sweep.”That was supposed to be easy Abraham Almonte Jersey
,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said.Fiers was struck by a liner from Mason Williams, who wound up with a single when the ball caromed toward the first base line. Fiers finished the inning but didn’t come out for the third.”It wasn’t too bad – it is just a bruise – but I couldn’t really land on it,” Fiers said. ”The guys here didn’t want to risk me changing my delivery and hurting my arm.”X-rays on Fiers’ shin were negative. It was unclear whether he will make his next scheduled start.”We’re going to see how he is,” Gardenhire said. ”It swelled up pretty big.”Drew VerHagen (2-2) followed as the first of six relievers and pitched three scoreless innings.”He had his good sinker going tonight, and that’s tough for a hitter to get the barrel on,” Tigers catcher John Hicks said. ”Even if they do make contact, they are going to drive it into the ground.”Shane Greene pitched the ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances.Sal Romano (6-9) allowed four runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.Jose Iglesias hit a two-run double in the second, and Jim Adduci had a solo homer in the fourth.Detroit made it 6-0 in the sixth when Ronny Rodriguez hit an RBI double and scored on Iglesias’s single over a drawn-in infield. A throwing error by left fielder Phillip Ervin allowed in another run.Cincinnati also threw away two relay throws to the plate, both allowing runners to advance on the bases.”That was just bad baseball,” Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman said. ”It is great effort, but bad performance. We have to find a way to clean that up.”Cincinnati closed to 6-4 in a four-run seventh, starting the inning with six consecutive hits off Alex Wilson that included Preston Tucker’s RBI single and Curt Casali’s two-run double.Billy Hamilton added an RBI single off Louis Coleman, but Casali was thrown out at the plate by Rodriguez from first when he tried to score on a groundout.”It was just not a good baserunning play on my part http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-grimm-jersey
,” Casali said. ”The hesitation cost me. I wish I could go back, because that was a rally-killer on my part.”Rodriguez, who replaced Adduci in the sixth, finished with two hits and two runs. Adduci also had two hits, including the homer.”That’s great strategy, I guess,” Gardenhire said. ”They went to the lefty, and Rodriguez was the obvious move, but he made me look good.”JaCoby Jones, who forced Joey Votto at second on an apparent bloop single in the top of the eighth, had an RBI single in the bottom of the inning.”I put my hand up like I was going to catch it, and that froze him,” said Jones Burch Smith Jersey
, a converted shortstop. ”After that, I was just playing it like an infielder and trying to make a good throw.”TRAINER’S ROOMReds: With OF Scott Schebler (right shoulder) still waiting to start a rehab assignment and OF Jesse Winkler having season-ending shoulder surgery on Tuesday, Tucker was Cincinnati’s designated hitter and will see action in the outfield.Tigers: LHP Francisco Liriano is scheduled to start Sunday in Oakland.
