The stat caught Chris Iannetta by complete surprise: This was only the 10th 1-0 game ever at Coors Field.

”Come on http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.co...il-mack-jersey ,” the catcher said.

He can thank his dominant starter for the latest addition. He played a pretty big role, too.

Iannetta homered in the seventh, Tyler Anderson pitched eight stellar innings in outdueling Andrew Suarez and the Colorado Rockies beat the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night to sweep a three-game series.

It was the first 1-0 game at Coors Field since June 12, 2010.

Anderson (6-3) scattered two hits and tied a season high with nine strikeouts. The left-hander didn’t allow a baserunner to reach second base.

”Tyler pitched great,” Rockies manager Bud Black said.

For that, Anderson credits a slight tweak in game plans, going with more cutters than changeups.

”It was helpful because I’ve faced those guys a lot,” Anderson said. ”If they want to sit on a changeup, it kind of helps to have something to equalize that.”

And of course, Anderson wanted the ball for the ninth.

”You always want to go out and finish it,” Anderson said. ”At the same time, Wade Davis is an unbelievable pitcher.”

Davis surrendered a two-out single to Andrew McCutchen and walked Buster Posey in the ninth. Pinch-hitter Brandon Crawford hit a deep foul ball before later flying out as Davis earned his 25th save.

Suarez (3-5) pretty much matched Anderson pitch for pitch in going seven innings and scattering five hits.

”A pitcher’s duel is always fun,” Suarez said. ”I enjoyed it http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/dion-sims-jersey , just that last inning I missed that one pitch.”

Suarez elevated a slider on a full count to Iannetta, who took a few steps down the line to make sure his hooking liner remained fair.

It did. The umpiring crew took a look and confirmed Iannetta’s seventh homer of the season.

Kelby Tomlinson and Brandon Belt both singled to account for the only Giants hits off Anderson. Over the three-game series, San Francisco mustered just three runs and hit a combined .152.

”It’s a tough one, the whole series,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. ”We’ve got to rebound here, get the bats going.”

This was another strong outing for Anderson, who allowed four hits and no runs over eight innings in Los Angeles against the Dodgers last Friday.

He found a way to top it.

”He was good both times. He had command of four pitches,” Iannetta said. ”He was using all four quadrants of the zone. That’s really a difference maker. When you can command pitches, it makes it tough for hitters to get in a groove.”

Colorado had something brewing in the third, when DJ LeMahieu lined a one-out double to right. Charlie Blackmon followed with a sharp single off the glove of Joe Panik, who hustled after the baseball as LeMahieu took a wide turn. LeMahieu held at third and Suarez got the next two outs to escape the jam.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Rockies: RHP Bryan Shaw (strained calf) threw 25 pitches in a simulated game Wednesday. Black said the reliever will throw Friday and Sunday for Triple-A Albuquerque. ”From there, we’ll make an assessment of where Bryan is,” Black said. ”But Bryan right now feels good Paul Hornung Jersey , his arm feels great.”

STREAKING ARENADO

Nolan Arenado leads the NL with 22 homers this season. And to think, he thought he might not even hit one out this season.

No, seriously.

”The first month-and-a-half, felt like I wasn’t going to hit any homers this year,” Arenado said. ”Now I have 22. You have to ride the wave.”

THIS & THAT

Tomlinson was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento and started at third base. … Colorado snapped a four-game skid on the Fourth of July. … Of Colorado’s three 1-0 wins on solo homers, Iannetta has the last two, according to the team. He also accomplished the feat on July 18, 2010, at Cincinnati. … The game lasted just 2 hours, 15 minutes – the shortest at Coors Field this season.

UP NEXT

Giants: Begin a four-game series against St. Louis on Thursday, with Johnny Cueto (3-0, 0.84 ERA) expected to return to the mound. Cueto was placed on the disabled list May 1 – retroactive to April 29 – with inflammation in his right elbow. A few days later he visited Dr. James Andrews, who diagnosed him with a strained elbow.

Rockies: Off Thursday before playing a three-game series in Seattle. RHP German Marquez (6-8 La'el Collins Jersey , 5.14) will throw for the Rockies on Friday, while the Mariners go with RHP Felix Hernandez (8-6, 5.11).




RENTON, Wash. (AP) — For most of the past month, Doug Baldwin has been a spectator as he dealt with a sore left knee that kept him from participating in Seattle Seahawks practices.

It may be how Baldwin and the Seahawks end up managing most of the upcoming season for Seattle’s No. 1 wide receiver.

“I’m probably about 80-85 percent right now and the truth of the matter is it won’t be 100 percent,” Baldwin said. “It’s something I’ve got to deal with for the rest of the season.”

At least Baldwin is back on the field and showing signs of progress. He won’t play in the preseason finale Thursday against Oakland, but the expectation is that he will be ready for the regular-season opener Sept. 9 at Denver. The month of waiting to get back into practice has been difficult for Baldwin to handle.

“To be out this long … it was hard. It was hard emotionally. It was good to be back out there,” he said.

The team has offered few specifics about Baldwin’s knee. Coach Pete Carroll simply called it a sore knee. Baldwin was coy when asked if he’s undergone surgery, saying, “It depends on your definition of surgery.”

Whatever the full extent, it’s clear the issue is something Seattle will have to manage with rest if it expects to have Baldwin for the entire season.

“It will be something we have to manage throughout the course of the year. It will be day to day,” Baldwin said.

Baldwin practiced two days at the start of camp before becoming a spectator and spending more time in the training room than on any field. He said the knee issue emerged during the first week of OTAs in the spring and he did not participate in the team’s mandatory minicamp in June.

Once he realized the knee wasn’t responding as he hoped at the start of camp, it became a race to see if he could be ready for the start of the season.

“The first two days of camp realized it wasn’t where we wanted it to be in order for me to sustain the level of play http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline...e-adams-jersey , being able to express myself athletically, that I want to,” Baldwin said. “So it was time to do something more serious.”

Baldwin is coming off a down season by his standards. He had 75 catches, 991 yards and eight touchdowns in 2017 as Seattle’s overall offense took a step back. A year earlier, Baldwin had a career-best 94 receptions, and in 2016 he had 14 touchdown catches.

He understands his role in Seattle’s offense may be different this year with the addition of new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and a wide receiver group that includes newcomers Brandon Marshall and Jaron Brown. Not being able to be part of training camp has made the transition to the new offense a bit tougher.

“Obviously I would have liked to have some game reps and more practice because I am a rep guy and especially now with the new offense,” Baldwin said. “I would like to get the physical reps, especially with the quarterback trying to get that chemistry and build that rapport. I’ve been playing football since I was little. It’s really not that much different for me. I’ve been in the league now going on eight years, at this point it should be like riding a bike.”
