Bailey’s starts this season. Antworten

DENVER (AP) — Christian Yelich feels like he’s not really locked in — no more than usual Ronald Acuna Jr. Jersey , anyway.“Just taking it day by day,” the Milwaukee outfielder said.He and the Brewers are certainly dialed in, though. They have won 10 straight and seized a 2-0 lead against Colorado in the NL Division Series heading into Game 3 on Sunday in what could be a cool and damp afternoon in Denver.The Rockies hope a return to Coors Field can ignite their frigid bats. The team hit .154 over the opening two games and went 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position.A rest day couldn’t have come at a better time after a week that included travel to Los Angeles and Chicago, on to Milwaukee and then back home.“Clear the mind a little bit,” Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado said Saturday. “I’m ready to go. We’ll be ready to go. It’s no problem.”Colorado’s scuffle at the plate isn’t exactly a new phenomenon. The Rockies hit .287 at Coors Field this season, one of their lowest averages in franchise history. Their .256 overall mark remains a team low.“No doubt there needs to be adjustments made,” Rockies shortstop Trevor Story said. “But it’s a good feeling to be back home, where we feel really comfortable hitting.”Story is 0 for 8 with five strikeouts in the series. He resembles the Story of last season, when he struck out 191 times, rather than this All-Star version that hit .291 with 37 homers.His swing in the eighth inning Friday epitomized the Rockies difficulty in timing Brewers pitchers, striking out on a breaking pitch from Jeremy Jeffress that hit the dirt way before the plate.“Story’s a good player. He understands,” Arenado said. “He clears his mind pretty quickly.”Game 3 features a matchup of contrasting pitchers. Milwaukee’s Wade Miley gets by more with sneakiness than speed. The left-hander is 3-1 with a 4.76 ERA in five career games at Coors Field.Colorado will hand the ball to German Marquez, a right-hander who throws heat and had a team-record 230 strikeouts. He got the call over lefty Kyle Freeland, another one of Colorado’s up-and-coming young arms who also happens to be a Denver native and would pitch Monday — if there is a Monday.“They have a potent lineup, but I’m going to execute my plan, which is executing my pitches, hitting my target , and give our team a chance to win games,” Marquez said.Asked whether he would like to close the series out as quickly as possible, Brewers manager Craig Counsell just smiled.“Would we prefer to win it in three games? Of course,” Counsell said. “But they have something to say about that.”Counsell appreciates that anyone can step into the spotlight at any moment. Like in Game 2 when it was the turn of 38-year-old catcher Erik Kratz, who had two RBIs.“If you’re in the lineup, you get four shots. Everybody is going to get four shots,” Counsell said. “So last night, Erik was the one that cashed in on a really big opportunity.“Sometimes you’ve got to let these games unfold, and that’s how you know how to play them, and that’s what we’ll continue to do.”One factor: The weather. It’s supposed to be around 60 on Sunday with a chance of rain.“It’s not ideal. It wouldn’t be anybody’s first choice,” said Yelich, an NL MVP candidate who is 2 for 5 in the series with a homer and four walks. “They have to pitch in it, they have to hit in it. We have to pitch in it, we have to hit in it. You have to find a way to win.”Being back at home, the Rockies are trying to keep everything as normal as ever. Especially Arenado, who’s sticking to his usual routine: Eggs and bacon in the morning with oatmeal and two cups of coffee, head to the park and go straight to the cage to hone his swing.“We’ve won three games in a row before Preston Tucker Jersey ,” said Arenado, whose team captured six of seven in their final homestand to force a tiebreaking game 163 in Los Angeles for an NL West title the Dodgers wound up winning. “But it’s not an easy task with the Brewers.”The energized crowd should help. It’s the first home game for the Rockies since 2009.“Everywhere we’ve played, it’s been super loud, and everybody hates us,” Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon said. “So now it’ll be super loud and everybody loves us. I hope.” CINCINNATI (AP) — Eugenio Suarez and the Cincinnati Reds closed out a nice weekend with another solid day at the plate.It was quite a response to a tough series against Cleveland.Suarez hit a two-run homer during Cincinnati’s seven-run third inning, and the Reds swept the San Francisco Giants with an 11-4 win on Sunday.Jose Peraza also hit a two-run homer for last-place Cincinnati, which outscored San Francisco 18-5 in the last two games. Billy Hamilton tripled twice and drove in three runs.The Reds also swept the Giants in Cincy last season. Nine different Reds scored at least one run, helping Cincinnati bounce back after it was swept by Cleveland.“Sometimes it is when you play a club,” interim manager Jim Riggleman said. “We had a hot Cleveland team, then we get a Giants team that’s been struggling with the bats. We got them at the right time.”San Francisco had a chance to sweep Los Angeles before the Dodgers’ 12-inning victory on Wednesday night. The Giants then managed just six runs in the sweep by the Reds, extending their slide to four games.“It’s frustrating,” San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. “We didn’t hit much, The offense didn’t do anything here. We were hoping for more.”Giants left-hander Andrew Suarez (4-9) was tagged for seven runs, five earned, and seven hits in a season-low 2 2/3 innings in the finale.“I got ahead,” Suarez said. “I just couldn’t put them away. I didn’t have that putaway pitch today. I thought I had good stuff. The location wasn’t there.”Giants infielder Chase d’Arnaud worked a scoreless eighth in his first career pitching appearance.Suarez’s career-best 27th homer made it 6-1 in the third. Scooter Gennett hit a two-run triple before Suarez’s drive to center.Curt Casali also had two hits and drove in two runs in Cincinnati’s big inning.“It was an awesome inning,” Casali said. “I’m sure I’ve had two hits in an inning at some point in my career , but not in the big leagues. Any time you put up a crooked number against a club like that, it’s important.”Reds right-hander Luis Castillo (7-10) struck out nine in 6 2/3 innings. He was charged with three runs, one earned, and six hits.“Everything was working for me today,” Castillo said. “I was commanding my changeup. My slider was good and I was throwing strikes. I think, like last year, I’m able to throw my pitches in any situation.”Castillo retired 13 straight batters before Stephen Duggar’s two-out single in the seventh.“You look at his velocity,” Bochy said, “I don’t know of anybody in the National League who throws harder on average, and his changeup was biting. He was on top of his game.”Peraza finished with three hits as Cincinnati closed out a 5-4 homestand. Phillip Ervin had two hits and scored a run.NEW LOOKBrandon Belt became the first first baseman to lead off for the Giants since David Bell on July 6, 2002, at Arizona. Belt went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts.NEW FACEAristides Aquino made his major league debut when he ran for Gennett in the sixth inning. Aquino was recalled from Double-A Pensacola on Friday when Joey Votto was placed on the 10-day disabled list.TRIPLE HAPPYThe Reds had three triples in one game for the first time since Hamilton, Peraza and Devin Mesoraco tripled against the Dodgers on June 17, 2017. Hamilton is the first Red with two triples in one game since Jay Bruce on May 2, 2015, at Atlanta.TRAINER’S ROOMReds: OF Scott Schebler (strained AC joint in his right shoulder) is set for a rehab assignment with Double-A Pensacola. The Reds hope he will be ready to join them in Chicago during their weekend series with the Cubs.UP NEXTGiants: LHP Derek Holland (6-8) makes just his second career start against the Mets in Monday’s series opener in New York.Reds: Homer Bailey (1-10) is scheduled to start Monday in Milwaukee. The Reds are 1-15 in Bailey’s starts this season.
