|On June 7 Marquise Brown Jersey , the Colorado Rockies were tied for first place in the National League West and riding high. In the week since, the Rockies have lost five straight games and come to the Dallas-Fort Worth area on Friday with as many questions as answers about themselves as the season heads into the dog days of summer.
Colorado begins a three-game interleague series with the Texas Rangers, a team also in search of answers, at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas.
The Rockies will send right-hander Chad Bettis (4-1, 4.40 ERA) to the mound for the opening game and the Rangers will counter with Yohander Mendez (0-0, 0.00).
Colorado activated right-handed reliever Adam Ottavino from the disabled list Thursday, and manager Bud Black said Ottavino would go right back into his late-game role.
Ottavino had a 0.95 ERA and 45 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings before going to the disabled with a left oblique injury. The team went 5-9 without him in the lineup.
Otto feels that he wants to jump right back into the mix of pitching deep in the game, Black told mlb.com. Hes ready for that. He doesnt necessarily want to ease back in. Physically http://www.ravensfootballauthentics.com/jaylon-ferguson-jersey-authentic , he made it a point of emphasis to get his body in the best shape possible in the offseason. The year before, it wasnt the case.
Ottavino did not see action in the Rockies 9-3 loss at Philadelphia but will be ready when Colorado takes on hapless Texas.
The Rangers will attempt to end a six-game losing streak that included a heartbreaking 3-2 loss in 11 innings in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
With one out and the bases loaded, the Dodgers Austin Barnes dribbled what appeared to be a sure out at home in front of Rangers reliever Matt Bush. However, Bushs throw to home for the force pulled catcher Carlos Perez off the plate, allowing Enrique Hernandez to score the deciding run.
Texas is now a season-worst 18 games back of the first-place Seattle Mariners and the Houston Astros in the American League West after suffering a two-game sweep by the Dodgers.
Bettis gave up three home runs and lasted just four innings in his last start, a home loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The good news is his velocity returned after a dip for three starts. He is a Lubbock, Texas, native who pitched at Texas Tech University.
Bettis will make his 14th start of the season and his eighth on the road. He has no-decisions and a 7.67 ERA in his past six starts since May 11.
Bettis has pitched against Texas only once, getting a no-decision on Aug. 11 Miles Boykin Jersey , 2016, in Arlington, a 12-9 Rockies win.
Mendez will make his first big league start Friday. In 10 minor league starts this season, he has an 0-6 record with a 5.26 ERA. In one relief appearance with the Rangers this year, he didnt allow a run in two-thirds of an inning.
Mendez, who is ranked the Rangers seventh-ranked prospect by MLB Pipeline, has joined the ballclub from Triple-A Round Rock. He has been a September call-up for Texas each of the past two seasons, and featured with the Rangers earlier this season when he was called up May 3.
In 10 career major league appearances all in relief Mendez has posted a 0-1 record with a 7.31 ERA (13 earned runs in 16 innings).
Its going to be multiple starts, Texas manager Jeff Banister said Wednesday about Mendezs upcoming major league stint. Hes going to have the opportunity to show us what he can do as a starter.
Were still in the business of winning baseball games Deandre Baker Jersey , Banister added. Its about development, but it is the big leagues, and you still develop and still give yourself the opportunity to win baseball games.
The Padres bullpen has stepped up to fill a hole in San Diegos rotation.
Eric Hosmer homered, San Diegos bullpen took a perfect game into the sixth inning and the Padres beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2 on Tuesday night for their 10th win in 14 games.
This was the third bullpen game for San Diego this season, all since left-hander Joey Lucchesi went down with a right hip strain.
These guys are all built to kind of grind through a lineup one time or cruise through a lineup or attack a lineup one time through, Padres manager Andy Green said. Theyre all built for nine batters pretty easily or 10 batters so it just makes sense to give them those types of pieces of a lineup for a first time through and keep hitters uncomfortable. I like it.
Padres reliever Matt Strahm started the bullpen game and retired nine batters on 36 pitches, including four strikeouts. Adam Cimber (3-2) retired the next six with two strikeouts before Harrison Bader broke up the perfect game with an infield single in the sixth. Bader was promptly erased in a double play.
In that situation, I know on a bullpen day, me coming in the fourth inning Im probably looked at to get at least a few (innings) http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-oshane-ximines-jersey , Cimber said. You still take it one hitter at a time.
Strahm, a lefty, and Cimber, a submarine righty, make a stark contrast for opposing hitters.
Its the opposite end of the spectrum, Strahm said. Hes down on the right and Im up on the left. Its a good combo to come in.
The Padres nine-man bullpen makes the starter-by-committee approach effective. Green said he plans to go with it again Sunday.
Weve got seven arms available, Green said. Im going to guess thats more arms available than almost every team in major league baseball, so its not putting the stress on our bullpen that a lot of people presume it is.
Brad Hand pitched the ninth for his 20th save.
Hosmer drove the first pitch of the fourth inning to center field to give the Padres a 1-0 lead. It was his second home run in three games.
A.J. Ellis tacked on two more with a two-out hit in the fourth. The Cardinals challenged the safe call on the second run, but replay showed the Freddy Galvis beat catcher Yadier Molinas tag at home plate.
Basically the first strike you see you want to be aggressive Julian Love Jersey , Ellis said. I found a pitch to find a hole on.
Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas (7-2) struck out five in six innings and walked none. He has walked one or less in all seven of his home starts this season, but St. Louis still lost for the second time in three games.
I felt like my stuff was pretty good today, Mikolas said. I made some pretty good pitches. I think the ball Hosmer hit was a decent pitch.
Marcell Ozunas RBI single snapped the Padres shutout bid in the seventh. Ozuna has driven in five runs in his last four games.
I thought our offense did a pretty good job of getting some things rolling toward the end of the game, Bader said. Just today, it just showed up a little too late.
Padres: OF Franchy Cordero (right forearm strain) took batting practice and hopes to begin a rehab in a couple of days.
Cardinals: RHP Matt Bowman (right hand blisters) gave up a run in two innings Monday at Triple-A Memphis and could be activated by the end of the week.
Cardinals RHP Luke Weaver (3-5, 4.35 ERA) will get the start in the series finale against the Padres and LHP Eric Lauer (2-4, 6.64 ERA) on Wednesday at 7:15 CDT. Weaver has not allowed a run in 12 innings (two career starts) against San Diego. Lauer gave up six runs in 2 1/3 innings against St. Louis on May 11.
