Thu Jul 1913:55Rockies roll into 2nd half behind Story and solid pitching
DENVER (AP) — The Colorado Rockies are finding their stride behind a shortstop who's cutting down on his strikeouts, a converted first baseman who's rediscovering his swing and a rotation that's turning in quality start after quality start.On top of that, third baseman Nolan Arenado's turning in an MVP-caliber season yet again.An NL wild-card team a year ago, Colorado is pushing to make the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time in franchise history. The Rockies trail the Los Angeles Dodgers by two games in a tightly bunched NL West race. Riding a five-game winning streak, the Rockies open the second half Friday by traveling to Arizona and facing a Diamondbacks squad that's 1½ games ahead of them in the standings."Guys are really stepping up," said Arenado, who's hitting .312 with 23 homers and playing the hot corner so expertly that a sixth straight Gold Glove looks like a formality. "Everyone has been contributing."Leading the way of late is shortstop Trevor Story . H... [More]
Wed Jul 1813:50Boom or bust as homers, strikeouts dominate diamond
WASHINGTON (AP) — Boom or bust. This is what baseball has become — and that has owners worried."It's just kind of what it is: home runs and strikeouts," Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling said.Stripling had just given up 10th-inning home runs on consecutive pitches to Houston's Alex Bregman and George Springer on a night players combined for 10 longballs , nearly double the previous All-Star record.Last fall, you may remember, the Dodgers and Astros totaled 25 home runs in the World Series , four more than had ever been hit before in a Fall Classic."It's extremely tough to manufacture hits these days, especially with the shift," Stripling said after the American League's 8-6 win Tuesday night. "I certainly understand that's where the game's going, and so I think this game encapsulated that."It took until the 344th pitch for a run to be driven in on something other than a homer, Michael Brantley's tack-on sacrifice fly that boosted the AL's lead to 8-5. Joey Votto added the ... [More]
