SAN FRANCISCO -- The dependable bullpen that has been such a key part of San Franciscos even-year championship success this decade is showing its flaws. Greg Robinson Jersey.And manager Bruce Bochy plans to address it soon in a meeting with his coaches to make sure things are all lined up for a strong second half and what the Giants hope is another special playoff run.All-Star Nolan Arenado hit a go-ahead three-run home run in the seventh inning to give Colorado the big hit it has missed for much of the past week, and the Rockies beat San Francisco 7-3 on Tuesday night to end a season-high six-game losing streak.Were going to meet and see if we can get this thing right, Bochy said. Were trying to get this thing sorted out. At times theyre really good. Its a matter of somebody stepping up and taking over a role.Colorado catcher Nick Hundley and San Franciscos Angel Pagan exchanged words in the seventh during Pagans at-bat, and Hundley said something as Pagan turned to return to the dugout after a swinging strikeout. Pagan then gestured back toward the catcher before plate umpire Carlos Torres and Hundley had a heated chat. Rockies manager Walt Weiss rushed out, then the umpires gathered in the infield and both benches were warned but no ejections made.It was just some good clean fun, Weiss said.Hundley was booed loudly when he batted in the eighth, then he delivered an RBI single.Its such a cyclical game, Hundley said. Ive been bad at the plate the last week. It was big to get a couple hits in big innings.Colorado capitalized against San Franciscos shaky bullpen once ace Madison Bumgarner left, scoring more than one run for the first time in its last five games.Bumgarner, named to his fourth straight All-Star Game a few hours earlier, struck out six over six scoreless innings, allowed four hits and walked two.Jordan Lyles (2-2) pitched the sixth for the win.After George Kontos allowed a pair of singles to start the seventh, DJ LeMahieu hit an RBI infield single in the seventh against loser Cory Gearrin (3-1). Arenado followed with his 23rd home run.Colorado had failed of late to give its pitchers enough run support. Arenados big swing did it this time, then the Rockies added on late. Since the start of last season, Arenado has 14 homers and 45 RBI in 31 games against the Giants.LeMahieu drew a bases-loaded walk from Hunter Strickland in the eighth and Charlie Blackmon added a run-scoring single.Consistencys been missing a little bit from what weve seen, lefty reliever Javier Lopez said. Obviously when we click, weve shown that we click really well. Were running through a little rough patch right now, and its the big homer thats been getting us as of late, but youve got to try to focus on the good things. Were having a good first half. You dont want these little things to manifest. Well nip it in the bud.Bumgarner -- 4-0 with a 1.93 ERA in his last six starts against Colorado -- threw 96 pitches, ending his majors-leading streak of 13 straight outings with at least 100 pitches.Brandon Belt hit an RBI single in the first, trying to make a case to be the last NL All-Star chosen in a final vote by fans, then added another base hit in the third.The Giants scored their second run on a passed ball in the fifth, with Pagan coming home after a leadoff triple.With the bases loaded in the third, Giants right fielder Mac Williamson robbed Rockies rookie Trevor Story -- another All-Star final ballot candidate -- of a likely bases-clearing hit for the clutch final out of the inning.Rockies right-hander Tyler Chatwood came off the disabled list from a strained middle back that sidelined him June 19. He allowed three hits, two runs, one earned, struck out four and walked four in five innings.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Colorado activated RHP Adam Ottavino from the 60-day disabled list, and he made his season debut in the eighth. It marked his first time on the active roster since having Tommy John surgery on May 6, 2015. ... RHP Justin Miller went on the 15-day DL retroactive to Sunday with a strained left oblique.Giants: CF Denard Span, who had trigger-point injections Monday in his stiff neck and missed his fifth straight game Tuesday, hit off the tee and is scheduled for baseball activities Wednesday with the hope he will start Friday against Arizona following an off day. ... 3B Matt Duffy hit on the field for the first time since going on the DL on June 20 with a strained left Achilles tendon. ... OF Gregor Blanco was a late lineup scratch with left knee soreness.UP NEXTRockies: LHP Jorge De La Rosa (5-5, 5.98 ERA) is 1/3 with an 8.22 ERA in five road starts but beat the Giants in one of his two previous 2016 meetings and is coming off a 4-0 June.Giants: All-Star RHP Johnny Cueto (12-1, 2.57) tries to win his 10th straight decision, and the Giants are 15-2 in his starts. He is 1-0 with a 0.63 ERA in two starts against the Rockies. Glover Quin Jersey .

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- There was no celebration after the game for Earthquakes interim coach Mark Watson. San Joses players prefer waiting for something a bit bigger. Sam Cronin scored the winning goal in the 52nd minute and the Earthquakes beat the Colorado Rapids 2-1 on Saturday night to give Watson his first win. "Well wait for something bigger, like a playoff win, but there will be one," San Jose midfielder Chris Wondolowski said. But there were some fireworks between Watson and Rapids coach Oscar Pareja as the two walked off the field following a testy game that featured a red-card ejection. "It wasnt the prettiest game," said Watson. "But the results were good." Neither coach would discuss their postgame conversation, but Pareja wouldnt deny that it had something to do with the red card to Rapids leading scorer Atiba Harris in the 18th minute. "Well keep it between us," said Watson. Colorado played the final 72 minutes without Harris, who was ejected for sliding into Alan Gordon. Gordon was on the ground when Harris slid into his right leg. "Ill have to look at the film before commenting on the play," Pareja said. "I can say we were frustrated by our play in the first half, but played better a man down in the second half." Steven Lenhart scored his first goal of the season in the 11th minute to give San Jose a 1-0 lead, ending a two-match scoreless drought. The Earthquakes, shut out in their last two games, had scored only 13 goals in their first 15 games this season. Watson replaced Frank Yallop after San Joses 3-0 loss to Real Salt Lake on June 1. Haloti Ngata Jersey. The Earthquakes (4-6-6) had only one win in their previous 11 matches and were 0-5-2 on the road under Yallop. "He did a great job coming in here and commanding our locker room," Wondolowski said. "It was a bit similar to the way it was, but it was a great mix." Nathan Sturgis scored in the 67th for Colorado (5-5-5), which snapped a six-match unbeaten streak. The Rapids were 3-0-3 in that span. Neither team had a shot on goal before Lenhart outraced the defence for the ball a few strides past midfield. He drilled the ball from just outside the box into the upper right corner of the net past Clint Irwin to make it 1-0. The Rapids had their first scoring chance in the 30th minute when Dillon Powers put a shot into the breadbasket of Busch for a save. Deshorn Brown had a follow up shot, but sailed a header over the crossbar. Cronin extended the lead with his second goal of the season, picking up a loose ball and eluding Irwin as he came out beyond the penalty box then firing the ball into the back of the net. Irwin later stopped Lenhart from in close, Colorado regained possession and Brian Mullans cross set up Sturgis goal. Lenhart had a second goal waved off by an off-sides call in the 85th minute. San Jose goalkeeper Jon Busch caught a shot by Edson Buddle with a minute left. "Our play changed in the second half," Watson said. "We didnt have to take the game to them. They had to take the game to us." 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 ' ' '
