D-backs rookie Jimmie Sherfy dazzles, closes out sweep in Colorado

D-backs rookie Jimmie Sherfy dazzles, closes out sweep in Colorado”

They rested three regulars Sunday. And the Diamondbacks sent their No. 5 starter to the mound. Now, after dropping 10 of their last 14 games, and getting swept by the Arizona Diamondbacks this weekend, there's a possibility the Rockies might not even get into the postseason. While they had held a lead for 52 consecutive innings, they still haven't trailed in an inning for 78 consecutive innings.

"It's an impressive run, and it says a lot about what we're doing day by day", Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said.

However, we find ourselves only three games back of the Wild Card thanks to the recent bad play of the Colorado Rockies.

Chris Sale, Rick Porcello and Doug Fister all pitched well for the Red Sox overall, but Sale lasted just 4.1 innings Sunday in the Bronx after he allowed three home runs among seven hits while walking two in 4.1 innings of work. McFarland entered the game in the inning prior. They started this winning streak a day earlier. "They've been the mainstay and the common denominator all year long".

But they had better do it sooner rather than later.

"We have so much talent, so I expect that one of these days were are going to turn it around and get on a roll here".

It marked the first time since June 2013 that the Padres won three straight against the Dodgers, who have lost eight of their last nine games. The other two times they swept three three-game series in a row occurred in 2001 and 2003.

Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Chad Bettis throws to the plate during the first inning of a baseball game against the Atlanta Braves, Monday, Aug. 14, 2017, in Denver. The Rockies have batted.241 overall and.152 with runners in scoring position in that 14-game span. The sneaky Milwaukee Brewers are now right on Colorado's tail, just a half game back. They went 2-for-30 with runners in scoring position over the series. It was the Rockies' worst batting average with runners in scoring position in a series of three or more games since they went 0-for-23 in four games at St. Louis from September 30-Oct. "It's one of those things, everyone is trying". Everyone is trying. Everyone is trying really hard. Everyone is focused. But in baseball, it sounds weird, but the harder you try sometimes the harder it is. We can not forget how well the Milwaukee Brewers have stormed back after a slow start to the second half of the season.

Rockies starter German Marquez (10-6) had gone 6-0 with a 3.24 ERA in his previous nine starts at Coors Field, all of which the Rockies won.

Bettis is coming off a shaky start against Detroit in which he gave up five runs on seven hits over five innings. He lost at home for the first time since May 5 - also against Arizona.

Jordy Mercer and Starling Marte hit homers as Pittsburgh made the most of five hits to beat Cincinnati at PNC Park. The harsher part was the grand total of zero pitches outside the zone the Rockies got called for strikes to six such occurences for the Diamondbacks. However, he was effective when he had to be.

The Rockies' lone run Sunday came in the fifth inning when Blackmon singled home LeMahieu. "He's going to get his innings in", Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Stratton.

The Rockies managed only three hits off Godley, and although the right-hander issued six walks, the Rockies failed to cash in.

Santana put the Brewers on the board with a solo home run off Edwin Jackson (5-4) in the second inning.

The story of the game, though, would be Sherfy.

Rio Ruiz drove in three runs and Max Fried earned a victory in his first major league start as Atlanta snapped Chicago's six-game winning streak.

Seattle used three home runs and a strong start from Andrew Albers to complete a three-game sweep of Oakland.

The Diamondbacks were held scoreless in the first inning.

Little wonder Milwaukee is breathing down the Rockies' neck for the NL's second wild card.
