DENVER (AP) — Chris Iannetta flung the bat aside as if he got all of the pitch.In a way Andy Pettitte Jersey
, he did — a walk’s just as good as a hit, especially with the bases loaded in the ninth.Iannetta brought in the winning run by drawing a five-pitch walk, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3 after squandering a late lead Sunday.“I like my chances against a guy in that situation — someone with their back against the wall and has to make pitches over the plate,” the Rockies catcher said.It was the second walk-off win in as many days for Colorado. Ryan McMahon lined a three-run homer in the ninth on Saturday.DJ LeMahieu led off the ninth with a single to right that Yasiel Puig misplayed, allowing LeMahieu to take second. After David Dahl was intentionally walked with one out, Ian Desmond grounded out. McMahon was also walked to load the bases.Manager Bud Black thought about using pinch-hitter Carlos Gonzalez, but elected to stick with Iannetta, who drew the walk off Dylan Floro (4-3) when the right-hander’s sinker missed low.“I don’t get the job done and we go to the next inning. It’s not live or die,” Iannetta said of the pressure situation. “If he doesn’t get the job done Jose Cruz Jr. Jersey
, the game’s over.”The Rockies took three of four for their first home series win against the Dodgers since April 7-9, 2017. The loss dropped the Dodgers out of a first-place tie with Arizona in the NL West.It was the third straight game a Dodgers bullpen without Kenley Jansen — who’s sidelined with an irregular heartbeat — was tagged with the loss.“When you’re putting guys in a tough spot in tight situations where every game is close and you can’t get any breathing room, it makes it tough on everyone,” manager Dave Roberts said.Wade Davis (2-6) pitched a shaky ninth in a tie game after Colorado failed to earlier protect a 3-0 lead.Chad Bettis pitched efficiently into the seventh before turning it over to the struggling bullpen.That’s when the Dodgers went to work.Brian Dozier delivered a two-out, two-run single in the seventh off Scott Oberg. In the eighth, Matt Kemp tied the game at 3 with a sacrifice fly against Adam Ottavino.Davis got two quick outs in the ninth before walking Dozier, who stole second and then third when the shifted infield wasn’t paying attention. Davis retired pinch-hitter Joc Pederson on a grounder to end the inning.“They bended a little, didn’t totally break,” Rockies manager Bud Black said.Bettis went 6 1/3 innings http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-nolan-ryan-jersey

The team has an off day Monday before playing in Houston, where Arenado could play third or be the designated hitter.“Feels better for sure,” Arenado said.FRUSTRATIONIt was a frustrating day for Manny Machado, who went 0 for 4.

HOUSTON (AP) — Edwin Diaz was supposed to be off on Sunday after earning saves in each of the last three games for the Seattle Mariners.Instead, after the Mariners tied the Houston Astros in the ninth inning, the All-Star closer told bullpen coach Brian De Lunas to call the dugout to say that he wanted to try to make it four in a row.Ryon Healy hit a tying home run with two outs in the ninth, Mitch Haniger delivered an RBI double in the 10th and Diaz finished up as the Mariners beat Houston 4-3 to sweep a four-game series from the AL West leaders.Diaz allowed one hit in a scoreless 10th for his major league-high 46th save. Manager Scott Servais was pleased but not surprised that Diaz offered to help out on Sunday.“Sometimes you’ve got to do that,” he said. “That’s how Eddie’s wired and how this team is wired.”It’s the first time in franchise history that Seattle swept a four-game series from the Astros. The third-place Mariners pulled within four games of Houston.“It feels like a really bad weekend http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-jake-marisnick-jersey
,” Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. “Which is all it is … but we’ll be fine. This is not something we can’t overcome.”Healy loved that Diaz volunteered to pitch in the 10th.“I got larger goosebumps after hearing that than after I hit the homer, to be honest,” he said.Healy’s solo drive off Hector Rondon made it 3-all. Pinch-hitter Dee Gordon singled against Roberto Osuna (1-1) with one out in the 10th, and the speedster easily scored on Haniger’s double that skipped down the left field line.“That’s the defending world champions. We’re excited,” Gordon said. “That was a big run for us there in the 10th inning. We definitely could have laid down and let them walk us off, but we didn’t.”Zach Duke (5-4) pitched 1 1/3 innings for the win.The Astros had managed just three singles and trailed 2-0 entering the eighth when James Pazos hit Kyle Tucker with a pitch. Pinch-hitter Yuli Gurriel singled before Alex Bregman’s single off Nick Vincent with one out cut the lead to 2-1.Carlos Correa then hit an RBI single to tie it. It was his first hit since coming off the disabled list on Friday after missing six weeks with a sore back. A sacrifice fly by Evan Gattis scored Bregman to put Houston on top.Houston starter Dallas Keuchel allowed seven hits and two runs — one earned — in seven innings.The Mariners got a solid start from Erasmo Ramirez, who gave up just three hits in five scoreless innings in his first game since April 27.Ramirez came off the disabled list before the game to make his third start of the season after sitting out more than three months with a shoulder injury. He took Felix Hernandez’s spot in the rotation after the one-time ace was demoted to the bullpen on Thursday night after going 0-4 in his last five starts in a season where he’s posted a career-high 5.73 ERA.Healy got the Mariners on the board with an RBI single in the second.Mike Zunino’s solo homer made it 2-0 in the seventh.TRAINER’S ROOMAstros: Hinch said OF Jake Marisnick, who went on the disabled list with a groin injury on Saturday, is expected to be out several weeks. … C Brian McCann Michael Saunders Jersey
