ATLANTA (AP) — After four at-bats http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-neil-walker-jersey , DJ LeMahieu was still looking for his first hit and felt he hadn’t made good contact.He was just saving his best swing for extra innings.The Colorado Rockies struck for three runs with two outs in the ninth inning before LeMahieu homered over the center field wall in the 10th Saturday night in a 5-3 win over the Atlanta Braves.LeMahieu’s drive off Luke Jackson cleared the 400-foot mark — the deepest part of the park.“I hadn’t really hit the ball hard all night,” he said. “I was just trying to get on base.”Carlos Gonzalez followed with a double and scored on Nolan Arenado’s single to complete a frustrating blown save for fill-in closer A.J. Minter.Minter came in with a 3-0 lead to begin the ninth and retired the first two Colorado batters. But the Rockies followed with four straight hits, including a two-run double by Ian Desmond and a tying single by pinch-hitter Gerardo Parra.Minter has been Atlanta’s closer since Arodys Vizcaino went on the disabled list last month with shoulder trouble.Braves trainer George Poulis visited Minter on the mound early in the ninth to examine a cut on Minter’s left thumb. Minter said a fingernail caused the cut on his second pitch.“It had nothing to do with the outcome of the game,” Minter said, adding the blown save was “just pretty pathetic on my part. My job was to come in and get three outs, especially in a three-run game, and I didn’t get the job done.”Braves manager Brian Snitker described Minter, a rookie, as “still a work in progress” while mastering the command of pitches.“It hasn’t been great for a few outings, really,” Snitker said. “He has continued to make pitches and not give in and get through it.”LeMahieu hit his 10th homer with one out in the 10th off Jackson (1-1).The Braves stranded a runner at third base in the ninth when Adam Ottavino (5-2) struck out Dansby Swanson to end the inning. Wade Davis pitched the 10th for his 34th save.The Rockies have won the first three games of the four-game series to stay close to NL West-leading Arizona.The NL East-leading Braves remained one-half game ahead of second-place Philadelphia.Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz gave up four hits in seven innings and struck out nine.Nick Markakis drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single off Antonio Senzatela with two outs in the third inning. Ronald Acuna Jr. had three hits and a walk, scored twice and stole a base. Acuna singled, stole second and scored on Freddie Freeman’s single off Bryan Shaw in the eighth.TRAINER’S ROOMRockies: INF Pat Valaika was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque to clear a roster spot for Senzatela Adrian Gonzalez Jersey , who had been on the 10-day disabled list since Aug. 5 with right shoulder inflammation.Braves: Snitker said LHP Max Fried (left groin strain) will make another rehab start before he’s able to return to Atlanta. He allowed three earned runs in 4 1/3 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.LEADOFF MAGICAcuna extended his Atlanta franchise-record streak to reaching safely in nine consecutive plate appearances leading off a game when he singled in the first inning. He has four homers, three singles, one walk and a hit by pitch when leading off games over that span.RECORD CROWDThere was occasional light rain but no delay following an afternoon of sometimes heavy downpours. Despite the threatening weather, the sellout of 42,143 set a SunTrust Park record.UP NEXTRockies: RHP German Marquez (10-9, 4.51) is coming off a win over Justin Verlander and the Astros in Houston on Tuesday. He is 5-1 with a 2.91 ERA since June 30 and is 3-0 with a 2.73 ERA in his last five road starts.Braves: RHP Anibal Sanchez (6-3, 3.07) will try to extend his perfect career record against the Rockies. Sanchez is 4-0 with a 1.99 ERA in six career starts against Colorado. NEW YORK (AP) — Being a Rule 5 draft pick usually means putting in far more time before a game than during it. On Sunday, the hard work paid off for rookie Victor Reyes and the Detroit Tigers.Reyes hit his first major league homer, doubled twice and singled in leading the Tigers over the New York Yankees 11-7.“He works his tail off,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. “He does everything he’s supposed to do and he competes up here just like the rest of those guys. He has ability, that’s why they drafted him, that’s why we picked him up.”The 23-year-old outfielder, who hadn’t played above Double-A before the Tigers selected him from Arizona last December in the Rule 5 draft for players left off 40-man rosters Jose Bautista Jersey , drove in three runs with his career-high four hits.“It’s hard work every day,” Reyes said through a translator. “It’s coming to the park (to) work hard. I’m ready for any time the team needs me.”As a Rule 5 player, Reyes must either stay on the big league roster all season or be offered back to the Diamondbacks. Striking a balance between keeping Reyes sharp and running the risk of exposing him against competition he’s never faced has been a season-long challenge for Gardenhire, who admits he didn’t play Reyes enough in the first half.Reyes made 22 starts in 99 games before the All-Star break, but has started 23 of Detroit’s 38 second-half games.“It’s been a pleasure having him up here, to tell you the truth, and watching him get to play,” Gardenhire said. “As I’ve started playing him more, he’s done more. That’s kind of what you’re supposed to do.”Batting last, Reyes delivered RBI doubles in the second and fourth, when his hit gave Detroit the lead for good. He homered in the sixth, connecting in his 82nd game in the big leagues.“Unbelievable emotion,” Reyes said. “Running around the bases http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-amed-rosario-jersey , first big league home run in Yankee Stadium, you can’t describe the feeling.”Reyes, who had just three RBIs in his previous 49 games dating to June 15, may have saved his biggest contribution for the field.The Tigers took an 8-3 lead into eighth. They nearly frittered the game away after Miguel Andujar and Neil Walker hit RBI single. Greg Bird then barely missed a grand slam when his two-out shot was caught by Reyes as he hit the right field wall.“I thought as he hit the ball, maybe he has a chance,” said Reyes, who credited outfield coach Dave Clark for working with him during batting practice to adjust to the different dimensions of road ballparks. “But then I got to the wall and I was ready to catch the ball.”Niko Goodrum had an RBI single in the first for the Tigers. JaCoby Jones‘ two-run double in the fourth chased Yankees starter Lance Lynn (9-9) before Nicholas Castellanos hit a two-run homer on Tommy Kahnle’s first pitch to give Detroit a 7-2 lead.Matthew Boyd (9-12) gave up three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings for the Tigers.Aaron Hicks and Luke Voit homered and Andujar had three hits and scored three times. Gleyber Torres had a two-run single in the ninth.Giancarlo Stanton sat out his first full game for the Yankees since May 28. Manager Josh Bard, filling in for the suspended Aaron Boone, sent up Walker and Bird as pinch-hitters in the eighth.“He was available, but we were going to make sure that it was to win the game and we thought the matchup was good for ‘Birdie’ right there,” Bard said.Lynn allowed six runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out six over 3 2/3 innings.BOONE BANBoone served a one-game suspension for his heated argument Friday night with home plate umpire Nic Lentz. Boone made the highlight shows for getting into a crouch to explain his displeasure with Lentz’s strike zone, though he was punished for bumping caps with Lentz and jabbing his pointer finger in the umpire’s face.“Obviously, I got a little to closer for comfort there Devin Mesoraco Jersey , so that’s part of the deal,” said Boone, who was informed of the decision by one of his predecessors, MLB chief baseball officer Joe Torre.It was the first suspension for Boone, whose ejection was his third of his rookie season. He watched the game from a luxury suite as Bard took over.“It’s really no different,” Bard said of sliding into Boone’s spot in the dugout. “Our process stays the same.”TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: DH Victor Martinez, who is retiring after the season, sat out for just the fourth time since Aug. 1.Yankees: SS Didi Gregorius (left heel bruise) took batting practice for the first time since he was injured Aug. 19. He is expected to be activated next weekend.UP NEXTTigers: RHP Michael Fulmer (3-10, 4.71 ERA) will look to win for the first time in 2 1/2 months when the Tigers visit the White Sox for the opener of a three-game series. Fulmer is 0-5 with a 5.90 ERA in seven starts since his most recent win June 14.Yankees: LHP CC Sabathia (7-5, 3.36 ERA) will take the mound as the Yankees visit the Oakland Athletics for what could be a preview of the AL wild-card game. The Yankees entered Sunday 5 1/2 games ahead of the Athletics in the race for the top wild-card spot.
