DENVER -- A tough stretch in the last few days for the Colorado Rockies made Dexter Fowlers game-winning hit in the teams final at-bat that much sweeter. Air Max Bw White Grey . Fowlers RBI single down the first base line in the 10th inning lifted the Rockies past the Dodgers 7-6 on Saturday, a day after Colorado lost to Los Angeles in extra innings. "Its an awesome feeling, especially the way weve been grinding the past few days," Fowler said. "Weve been losing some close games, some extra-inning games and its good to come out on top." The Rockies endured a stretch in which they had lost six of seven games before pulling out their fourth win this season in their last at-bat. They improved to 4-6 in extra-inning games. "This win was really important," said Michael Cuddyer, who hit a game-tying home run in the seventh. "It wasnt, Our season is over if we lose, but at the same time, it was a good win to be able to get our heads back and to fight like we did and have the resiliency to come back and win. Hopefully, this will give us some momentum." Yorvit Torrealbas two-out single off Matt Guerrier (1-2) started the rally. Pinch-hitter Wilin Rosario followed with an infield single, narrowly beating the throw to first. Fowler then lined a hard grounder that shot past first base into right field, driving in Torrealba with the winning run and snapping the Rockies three-game losing streak. "I hit a curve ball," Fowler said. "I was just looking for something up. I just wanted to hit the ball hard somewhere. Thats what Ive been trying to do the past few weeks and let everything else take care of itself." Matt Belisle (3-2) pitched a scoreless inning for the victory. The loss was compounded for the Dodgers because of another injury, this time to Carl Crawford. He left in the third inning after suffering a left hamstring cramp while legging out his second double in two at-bats. There was no immediate word on the severity of the injury, but Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated that the team likely would have to make some roster moves. "Hamstrings are never good. Well find out," said Mattingly, who wasnt around for the finish after drawing his first ejection of the season in the sixth. Said Crawford: "Were all trying to figure it out because this is my left hamstring and it kind of came out of nowhere." Crawfords absence for any extended period of time would be tough for the Dodgers, whose disabled list already is swelled with some of the teams best players, from Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez to Josh Beckett and Chad Billingsley, among others. "Its kind of getting ridiculous," Mattingly said. "The last couple of days, two outfielders (Kemp went on the DL two days ago), kind of our main guys. We had a chance to win today and we didnt get the outs we needed." The Rockies tied the score at 6-6 in the seventh when Cuddyer connected off Ronald Belisario for his ninth homer of the season, a two-run shot that bounced off the top of the wall in right-centre before dropping on the other side. Trailing 3-1, the Rockies used a three-run fifth, highlighted by Carlos Gonzalezs 14th home run of the season, to go up 4-3. The Dodgers regained the lead in the sixth. Skip Schumaker and Nick Punto hit consecutive singles and Tim Federowicz, who hit his first major league home run in the third, followed with a two-run double to centre for a 5-4 lead. In the bottom of the sixth, Nolan Arenado led off with a single. Torrealba hit a low line drive that Zack Greinke appeared to snag before his glove hit the base of the mound and then threw to first to double off Arenado, who had advanced to second. Umpires ruled that the ball hit the ground before Greinke caught it and Mattingly was ejected by first base umpire Brian Knight after a persistent, heated argument over the call. Greinke left with one out in the sixth after walking pinch-hitter Jordan Pacheco. Paco Rodriguez relieved and retired the next two batters, rendering the umpires decision moot as the Rockies stranded both base runners in the inning. Schumakers RBI single in the seventh boosted the Dodgers lead to two runs. In the second, the Rockies got three consecutive hits off Greinke, the last an RBI double by Arenado. Torrealba walked before Greinke induced an inning-ending double-play grounder from Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin, who allowed five runs on nine hits in six innings. Chacin is still seeking his first win since April 19. NOTES: After the game, a Rockies team spokesman said closer Rafael Betancourt would go on the disabled list because of a right groin strain. The move is expected to be formalized on Sunday. ... Cuddyer has hit safely in each of his eight starts since being activated from the disabled list and rejoining the Rockies on May 24. ... Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis, who hasnt played since suffering an oblique strain Wednesday, took swings off a tee prior to the game. ... Dodgers reliever J.P. Howell struck out the side in the eighth. ... Fowler has three career "walk-off" hits. ... The Dodgers fell to 1-3 in extra-inning games. Air Max Bw For Sale .Y. - Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night. Nike Air Max Bw Classic For Sale . After slipping from the summit during the week, the Gunners overcame struggling Crystal Palace 2-0 on Sunday thanks to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlains second-half brace. http://www.airmaxbw.com/ . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. CHICAGO -- Jeff Samardzija has started plenty of games at Wrigley Field -- just not in the playoffs. Thats about to change.He will make his first postseason start in the same place he began his major league career when his San Francisco Giants play the Chicago Cubs in Game 2 of the NL Division Series on Saturday night.Samardzija was drafted by the Cubs in 2006 and spent his first 6 1/2 seasons with the team before he was traded to Oakland in the 2014 deal that brought shortstop Addison Russell to the Cubs.Obviously, everythings a little different when you pitched in one place for so long and then have to go do it on the other side, he said. But really not worried about that too much. Im just excited that Im getting an opportunity to pitch in a playoff game, which for me they have been few and far between with going in 2008 and then going briefly in 2014. For me, Im excited to have that opportunity and never matters where its at or what time of day it is. Its just the playoffs are the playoffs and you want to have a good showing.Samardzijas only playoff appearance was a relief outing for the Cubs against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2008 Division Series.San Francisco could have started midseason acquisition Matt Moore in Game 2. But Samardzija is familiar with Wrigley Field and has not pitched since Sept. 28. Moore, who started the final regular-season game, would get throw back home in a Game 4.Chicago Game 2 starter Kyle Hendricks went 16-8 with a major league-best 2.13 ERA.To be able to pitch here in front of these fans, Game 2, its a dream come true, Hendricks said. Really it was a dream come true last year just to be pitching iin a playoff game. Nike Air Max Bw Classic Cheap. But for the team, for Joe (Maddon) to have confidence in me to hand me the ball for this game is big.Samardzija, a native of nearby Merrillville, Indiana, also played baseball and football at Notre Dame. He signed a $90 million, five-year contract with San Francisco last fall and has bounced back after going 11-13 in his lone season with the White Sox.Saturdays start will be Samardzijas second as a visitor at Wrigley Field. In September, he threw 47 pitches in a three-run first and exited after four innings.Samardzija was critical of the Cubs rebuilding plan, especially when they traded Scott Feldman and Steve Clevenger to Baltimore and Carlos Marmol to the Dodgers on the same day in early July 2013.The deal with the Orioles became one of the defining moments that helped make the Cubs one of the best teams in the majors the past two years, bringing them 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner Jake Arrieta and reliever Pedro Strop.Samardzija met with Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein last offseason before signing with San Francisco, but the Cubs focused on outfielder Jason Heyward and pitcher John Lackey.There was a handful of teams that I could see myself playing for with the direction they were going, the strength of the division, the guys they had in their farm team, he said. So obviously the Cubs checked all those boxes. I had good relationships with the people that were there. Just unfortunately when it came down to it, we were kind of looking for different things. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
