Rockies Face Twins Thursday Twinbill

Rockies Face Twins Thursday Twinbill

"Explosive, quick heater, that sweeping curveball that he can turn into a slider", Rockies first baseman Ian Desmond said.

Reynolds went 1 for 1 with two walks and drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single off Santana (6-2) to help break the open in the third inning. In 22 games this season with the Rockies, Garneau batted.206 with one home run and six RBIs.

In the nightcap, Colorado veteran right-hander Tyler Chatwood was simply no match for Berrios. In the night side of a day-night double header, Robbie Grossman was 2 for 4 with a run and RBI, Brandon Kintzler got the save, but Jose Berrios stole the show.

"The work I put in in the offseason and during spring training and be able to be ahead of the hitters gives me the confidence", Berrios said.

If Anderson can begin pitching like he did a year ago, the Rockies' rotation would be formidable. "Guys have been working really hard on that side of the ball, and I'm glad it's been showing up".

"Delivery is pretty much the same, body is the same", said Black, now the manager of the Colorado Rockies. "The stuff was outstanding, the fastball had velocity and movement, but it just looked a little bit out of sync, mechanically". He is the first Twins starter to record 11 or more strikeouts since Ervin Santana did it on September 5, 2015 at Houston (11) and the first Twins starter to do it at Target Field since Francisco Liriano accomplished the feat on July 13, 2012 against Oakland (15). Gerardo Parra led off the fifth with a single but was thrown out trying to steal on a failed hit-and-run.

Ringling Bros. Circus Says Goodbye After 146 Years
Her sister, Dawn Mirowitz, 42, of Dix Hills, New York , sobered as she pondered a future without the Ringling Brothers circus. As for those who hope this is all just a stunt and the circus will be back, Ringling management says that's not happening.

Marquez, one of three rookies now in the rotation, stretched his scoreless streak to 15 straight innings until a triple by Eddie Rosario led to the only run.

"(You're) playing percentages", Molitor said.

"Just the confidence", he said. They did manage to knock German Marquez out of the game after that inning. Rosario scored on a Brian Dozier sac fly, giving Marquez his only blemish on the day. With two on and two out and the tying run on the on-deck circle, Holland was brought in to face one batter in the ninth.

Santana entered the game on a remarkable roll, having gone 12-5 with a 2.12 ERA over his last 26 starts, dating back to June 19, 2016. Right-hander Ryan Pressly pitched two innings of scoreless relief, fanning five of the six batters he faced to keep the rest of the bullpen fresh for Game 2. Grossman did the driving in for Minnesota's second run in the fourth inning when his single scored Ehire Adrianza, who led off the inning with a double. He'll get his toughest test yet against Aaron Judge and high-powered NY, which leads the AL in runs, home runs and on-base percentage. He was able to get a swing and miss out of Charlie Blackmon on the curve for strike three and then, one inning later, froze Nolan Arenado with it to neutralize one of the premier power hitters in the league.

The Tigers are expecting to be without Miguel Cabrera for two or three days after the star slugger was a late scratch Wednesday night because of a strained oblique.
