SAN FRANCISCO — One hot pitcher and one who hopes he’s heating up go head-to-head Wednesday night when the Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants continue their three-game series.
The Giants outlasted the Rockies in a pitchers’ duel in the opener Tuesday night Marshall Newhouse Jersey , with a bases-loaded walk plating the winning run in the eighth, one inning after starters Derek Holland and Chad Bettis had exited a 1-1 game.
San Francisco, seeking a fourth straight win, will send Madison Bumgarner (1-2, 3.20 ERA) to the mound Wednesday.
The four-time All-Star recorded his first win of the season in his last start, rewarded for pitching eight shutout innings against the San Diego Padres on Thursday.
Bumgarner has made 26 career starts against the Rockies, going 12-7 with a 3.05 ERA.
He will be seeking to continue a stretch of brilliant pitching by the Giants, who have given up three or fewer runs in nine of their last 12 games.
The starting staff has performed so well, Giants manager Bruce Bochy admitted he’s not sure what the team’s going to do when injured rotation regulars Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija are deemed healthy enough to return.
That day is expected soon, especially with Samardzija, who has already made three injury-rehab appearances in the minors.
“I think you look at the way the rotation has been throwing the ball, it’s not going to be easy,” Bochy said of who Jabaal Sheard Jersey , if anybody, gets displaced. “But we knew this would be coming when Jeff’s ready and Johnny’s ready.”
A matchup with the Rockies means Bumgarner will have to deal with hot-hitting Nolan Arenado, but it’s been Carlos Gonzalez who has given the Giants’ lefty the most trouble over the years.
Gonzalez has five career homers against Bumgarner, the most anybody’s hit against the San Francisco ace.
Arenado has two career homers against Bumgarner.
The Giants not only will have to deal with Gonzalez and Arenado, but also with impressive Rockies left-hander Kyle Freeland (7-6, 3.55), who already has beaten San Francisco twice this season.
Facing the Giants twice in a 12-day stretch in May, Freeland allowed them four runs and 13 hits in 12 innings in 6-1 and 11-4 wins.
The 25-year-old has gone 2-1 in June after a 4-1 May that included the two wins over the Giants.
Freeland has started six times in his career against the Giants, going 4-2 with a 3.15 ERA.
He’s 1-1 with a 3.55 ERA in two career starts in San Francisco.
Freeland can expect to see Hunter Pence in the Giants’ lineup Wednesday.
Pence has been relegated to part-time duties when not injured this season, but has come through big-time in his last two starts and has a history against Freeland.
Pence collected two hits and two RBIs in a 6-5 win over Miami last Wednesday, then had a double and two more RBIs in a 3-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.
Pence has faced Freeland eight times in his career, going 4-for-7 with a walk.
The Kansas City Royals broke out of an extended run-scoring slump by getting to one of the toughest relievers in baseball.
They celebrated in the dugout after eighth-place hitter Adalberto Mondesi lined the first pitch from left-hander Josh Hader off the outfield wall for a long Youth John Kelly Jersey , two-run single with the bases loaded to take a 3-1 lead.
The hit was a turning point in a five-run seventh for the Royals, who held off the Milwaukee Brewers in the ninth for a 5-4 win on Wednesday.
”Score two runs and you can just kind of sense a sigh of relief from our offense, and then tacked on a couple more. It was good,” manager Ned Yost said.
The Royals scored more than four in a game for the first time since a 9-6 loss to the Angels on June 4. That 19-game stretch with four runs or fewer was the longest in the majors since the Baltimore Orioles went 21 straight in September 1992.
Danny Duffy (4-7) allowed five hits over six effective innings for the Royals, who split a two-game interleague series with the NL Central-leading Brewers.
The Royals called on Wily Peralta, a former Brewer, to close out the game after Brad Miller hit a three-run homer off reliever Tim Hill with nobody out in the ninth to get the Brewers within 5-4.
Eric Thames struck out before pinch-hitter Erik Kratz singled. Peralta then got Ryan Braun to bounce into a game-ending double play that was initially ruled as a fielder’s choice before the call was overturned on review.
Peralta said he felt a little extra sense of satisfaction in turning away the Brewers for his second save.
”There’s always a little bit of adrenaline going when you face your former team,” the right-hander said.
Mike Moustakas opened the seventh with a solo shot off Brent Suter (8-5) to tie the game at 1-all. Moustakas and Whit Merrifield each had two hits and an RBI.
Kansas City Mike Remmers Color Rush Jersey , which was hitting .188 in June coming into the game, got to the hard-throwing Hader. He allowed all three runners he inherited to score.
Hader also gave up one earned run on his own, along with two hits in two-thirds of an inning.
”They jumped on the first pitch and we’ve seen that a lot lately, but he’s been so effective that obviously multiple hits in an inning is something we haven’t seen,” manager Craig Counsell said. ”They got him today.”
Brewers: Suter, who made a great defensive play in the fifth, allowed six hits and four runs with six strikeouts before leaving with the bases loaded and nobody out in the seventh. He retired the first 11 batters.
”We’re battling and not really making it easy on our opponents. Even in our losses, we’re making the other team work a lot Authentic Dante Pettis Jersey ,” Suter said.
Royals: Duffy struck out seven and walked two. The left-hander has a 2.52 ERA over his past four starts.
AGUILAR GOES FAR
Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar hit a solo shot in the sixth off Duffy for his team-leading 18th homer. He has homered in back-to-back games for the fourth time this season.
Royals: RHP Justin Grimm was placed on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to June 24 with what they club said was right shoulder impingement syndrome. Grimm (1-3), who is making his second trip this year to the DL, would be eligible to return on July 4 against Cleveland. RHP Jason Adam was called up from Triple-A Omaha to replace Grimm in the bullpen. … C Salvador Perez left the game with nobody out and two on in the top of the ninth after a foul ball off the bat of Brad Miller ricocheted off his upper right leg. He was replaced by Drew Butera.
Brewers: 3B Travis Shaw was held out of the lineup for a second straight day to rest his sore right wrist. ”And then tomorrow, we’ll take a hard look at how he’s feeling,” Counsell said.
Royals: After a day off in Seattle, Ian Kennedy (1-7) opens a three-game series on Friday against the Mariners.
Brewers: Junior Guerra (3-5) pitches the opener of a four-game series in Cincinnati. The right-hander is 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA at Great American Ball Park.

The Magic sent Bismack Biyombo and two future second-round picks to Charlotte, which traded Mozgov to Orlando. The Magic also got guard Jerian Grant from the Bulls in the deal completed late Saturday night.
Chicago acquired Julyan Stone from Charlotte in the trade that saves the Bulls about $2 million.
The Hornets had just acquired Mozgov from Brooklyn in the deal that sent Dwight Howard to the Nets before he was bought out so he could sign with Washington. Neither Mozgov nor Biyombo ever came close to living up to the contracts they signed in July 2016, and both have two seasons and more than $32 million remaining.
Biyombo played for Charlotte from 2011-14. He is fifth in Hornets history in blocks and blocks per game (1.6).
A New Jersey memorabilia dealer who claims New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning conspired with the team’s equipment staff to sell bogus ”game-used” helmets to unsuspecting collectors as part of a long-running scam could get a chance to make his case in court next month.
A jury in New Jersey is scheduled to be selected May 14.
Attorneys for the two-time Super Bowl champion have attacked the allegations in Eric Inselberg’s lawsuit as ”inflammatory and baseless John Kelly Color Rush Jersey ,” and have accused Inselberg’s attorneys of using underhanded tactics to whip up a media frenzy against their client.
The lawsuit has encompassed four years, two courts and thousands of pages of documents, and has featured more than a little acrimony between the two sides as one of the NFL’s oldest and most-revered franchises has had to defend allegations that conjure up the seamy side of the sports memorabilia business.
Attorneys representing Inselberg, Manning, the team and an equipment manager named in the suit didn’t respond to requests for comment last week.
Inselberg filed the suit in 2014 and accused Manning and the team of doctoring jerseys, helmets and other equipment to make it look as though they had been used during play. He was among a group of memorabilia dealers accused of selling counterfeit jerseys following an FBI sting.
Though the case against Inselberg eventually was dropped, he said in court papers that he wanted the Giants to be held accountable for the lies that led to his indictment and ruined his business.
The dispute boiled over in April 2017 when Inselberg’s attorneys filed court documents that contained emails between Manning and equipment manager Joseph Skiba, including one in which Manning asks Skiba to get ”2 helmets that can pass as game used.”
In the furor after the emails became public Authentic Philip Rivers Jersey , Manning, who is known for his even-tempered demeanor, angrily denounced the allegations, saying, ”I have done nothing wrong and I have nothing to hide, and I know when this is done everyone will see it the same way.”
Manning didn’t return a message left with a spokesperson last week.
In a request to the judge to impose sanctions on Inselberg’s attorneys, Manning’s attorneys wrote that the emails were provided during the normal exchange of information that occurs in all civil cases and were labeled confidential.
They also argued the emails showed Manning carrying out the terms of his personal services contract with Steiner Sports, under which he provided them with two game-used helmets and two game-used jerseys after each season.
The email in question ”was intended by Mr. Manning to be a request for his game-used helmets that were in the possession of the Giants’ equipment staff Youth Cam Newton Jersey , consistent with Mr. Manning’s intentions and practices for other years as corroborated by the other email exchanges,” they wrote.
Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson knows he has an inspiring story to tell. The man who led the Eagles to a dramatic Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots is working on a memoir.
Hachette Books told The Associated Press on Tuesday the book is called "Fearless" and is coming out August 28. According to Hachette, Pederson will look back on his career as a quarterback and assistant coach and tell of the Eagles' unexpected championship season.
Pederson has been the team's head coach since 2016. He said in a statement that he had always considered himself an "underdog," whether backing up quarterbacks such as Brett Favre of the Green Bay Packers or, as Eagles head coach, facing the Patriots in Super Bowl LII and winning 41-33.
The Philadelphia Phillies won another one-run game to extend their winning streak to six games.
Nick Williams Cam Newton Jersey , Scott Kingery and Jorge Alfaro drove in runs on consecutive at-bats in the seventh inning to help Philadelphia win 3-2 on Saturday.
With two outs in the seventh, Williams sent a line drive down the right field line that took a funny hop off the fence and eluded Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco, who bobbled the ball. The relay throw still made it to third baseman Colin Moran ahead of Williams, but he able to avoid the tag for a triple.
Carlos Santana scored on the play. Kingery followed up with a single up the middle and then scored when Alfaro hit a double to right-center to give the Phillies all they’d need to clinch their third straight series win and improve to an MLB-best 19-7 in one-run games.
”Another win in a one-run game,” manager Gabe Kapler said. ”I think that’s something to really be proud of and something we continue to focus on.”
Jake Arrieta (6-6) worked around six hits with the help of eight strikeouts to hold the Pirates to two runs over seven innings. It was Arrieta’s first win in eight starts Womens Luke Kunin Jersey , though it didn’t look that way at first.
”There’s no perfect formula for how the game’s going to play out,” Arrieta said. ”Yeah, you want to score first. You want to score often. Sometimes that doesn’t happen.”
Pirates starter Jameson Taillon (5-7) was charged with all three runs. He struck out eight and walked none in his 77 pitches over 6 2/3 innings. He had allowed just two singles and hadn’t allowed a runner to even get into scoring position coming into the seventh inning. Reliever Edgar Santana allowed the go-ahead run to score with Alfaro’s double. The three runs were scored on three straight pitches.
”I was really excited and looking forward to being the guy to put an end to our tough streak here,” Taillon said. ”I’m at 68 pitches without a guy touching second base and someone’s warming up? That’s tough. So, I don’t know. I haven’t been pitching the greatest. I understand the trust isn’t there. “
Starling Marte singled and scored in the first and homered in the second as part of a three-hit afternoon to stake the Pirates to an early lead. Pittsburgh has lost five straight.
Victor Arano worked around a leadoff double in the ninth for his second save.
The Pirates activated right-handed reliever Michael Feliz from the 10-day disabled list Connor Brown Jersey , selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Alex McRae from Triple-A Indianapolis and optioned relievers Dovydas Neverauskas and Josh Smoker to Indianapolis.
Feliz had been on the disabled list since June 24 with a right shoulder strain. He has a 5.51 ERA in 33 appearances this season. It’s McRae’s first MLB call-up. He had a 4.61 ERA in 17 appearances – 16 starts – with Indianapolis. He’ll work out of the bullpen in Pittsburgh.
Phillies: INF Cesar Hernandez did not start after fouling a ball off his foot on Friday. He flew out in the eighth as a pinch hitter.
Pirates: C Francisco Cervelli (concussion) returned from his rehab assignment and took batting practice before the game. He hopes to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday. . RHP Joe Musgrove (finger infection) threw a bullpen session. He expects to return from the disabled list on Tuesday. . RHP Chad Kuhl (right forearm strain) is getting a second opinion on his injury and expects to be out until after the All-Star Game.
Phillies: Drew Anderson is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to make his 2018 debut. Anderson was 5-3 with a 4.15 ERA. It will be his third career MLB appearance.
Pirates: Nick Kingham (2-4, 4.70 ERA) will try to shake off a career-worst appearance last time out against Los Angeles on July 2, when he gave up seven runs in three innings. The rookie is 0-4 over his last five starts.
New York Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka has cleared a key hurdle in his rehab program for strained right and left hamstrings, throwing 26 pitches in his first bullpen session.
Tanaka, sidelined since getting hurt June 8 while running the bases in a game Abry Jones Jersey , threw before Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay.
”I was kind of being a little bit cautious about it,” Tanaka said through a translator. ”But it turned out that I didn’t feel anything.”
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tanaka will throw off a mound again Tuesday at New York’s spring training complex in Tampa. That lines Tanaka up to pitch in a simulated game Friday.
”Went well,” Boone said. ”Encouraging sign. It looks like he’s doing well.”
Tanaka is 7-2 with a 4.58 ERA in 13 starts.
”The arm strength is still there,” Tanaka said. ”Was able to really throw with some force on it.”
Bears head coach Matt Nagy said in April that he sees a “big ceiling” for wide receiver Kevin White despite the fact that White has missed all but five games since being drafted in the first round of the 2015 draft.
That belief didn’t lead the Bears to pick up their option on White’s contract for the 2019 season Bengals Authentic Jerseys , but he’s still on the cap for over $5.2 million this season and that gives them plenty of reasons to see if they can help White reach that ceiling. On Saturday, Nagy said the approach to doing that won’t involve a lot of yelling and screaming during the next six weeks of practices.
“We’re not gonna harp on anything that happens — a dropped ball, a route run the wrong way, a wrong split Mike Adams Jersey , a missed assignment,” Nagy said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “We don’t harp on any of that with any of the players — and in particular with him. We just want him to be him and play — play fast. And he’s done that so far. Again, it’s going to be up to him to do it in the preseason games and see where it takes him.”
With Allen Robinson Authentic Derwin James Jersey , Taylor Gabriel and second-round pick Anthony Miller joining the team this year, the Bears hope to have the receiver spot squared away whether White finally makes good on the potential he showed in college or not. If he does, it would make for a nice story and open up a chance for White to have a second act in Chicago or another town after the rough start to his professional career.
The Browns exercised the fifth-year option on defensive back Damarious Randall, acquired during the offseason from Green Bay.
Cleveland traded quarterback DeShone Kizer and swapped draft picks on March 14 with the Packers for Randall. The 25-year-old is expected to play free safety for the Browns Authentic Jason Sanders Jersey , allowing Jabrill Peppers to move to strong safety, where he played more at Michigan.
Randall was selected by Green Bay with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2015 draft.
The 5-foot-10, 196-pounder played exclusively at cornerback for three seasons with the Packers, making 30 starts and appearing in 39 games. He had four interceptions last season and returned one for a touchdown.
NFL teams have until May to exercise fifth-year options on players drafted in the first round in 2015. The option year is guaranteed for injury Youth Christian McCaffrey Jersey , but teams can still waive the player.
The Texans began experimenting with Kareem Jackson at safety during the offseason program as the team explored all options in trying to replace Andre Hal. Jackson performed so well at the position that he will play the position full time at training camp Maliek Collins Jersey , John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Jackson, 30, has practiced at safety in the past Ryan Strome Jersey , but his 108 career starts were at cornerback.
Coach Bill O’Brien said Friday that Jackson still can play corner when needed but will work only at safety for now. Jackson is more needed at safety after Hal was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
Hal started all 16 games at free safety last season, and Houston signed Tyrann Mathieu to man the strong safety spot.
The Dolphins signed a couple of draft picks on Friday and they agreed on a contract extension with a veteran member of the team.
Cornerback Bobby McCain was headed into the final year of his rookie deal, but he won’t be a free agent in 2019. McCain shared a picture of his contract signing on Instagram on Friday afternoon.
According to multiple reports, the four-year extension with the Dolphins with a total value of $27 million. There are $13 million in guarantees included in the deal Randall Cobb Jersey , .
McCain joined the Dolphins as a fifth-round pick in 2015 and has played in every game over his first three professional seasons. McCain has primarily worked out of the slot in those appearances and has 121 tackles, two sacks and three interceptions on the stat sheet.
