DENVER -- D. Willie McGee Jersey .J. LeMahieus bat upstaged his glove as the defensive specialist transformed into an offensive catalyst. LeMahieus two-run single broke a tie in a six-run eighth inning, sending the Colorado Rockies to a 10-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday. He finished with three hits, including an RBI double in the sixth that tied the game at 4. Buoyed by his big day -- on an afternoon he was honoured for his work in the field last season, no less -- LeMahieu helped the Rockies take two of three in the series. "Felt good to come through," said LeMahieu, who drove in a career-high three runs. Colorado broke open a tight game in the eighth with its biggest inning this season. Justin Morneau started the rally with a single off Scott Downs (0-2), who was pulled for reliever Ronald Belisario. The Rockies sent 10 batters to the plate, and LeMahieu had a clutch hit to centre. Pinch-hitter Josh Rutledge and Michael Cuddyer added run-scoring singles, while Carlos Gonzalez hit a two-run double down the line. Rex Brothers (1-0) got two outs in the eighth to earn the win. "Need to keep the momentum," Gonzalez said. The momentum shifted in the sixth. Morneau led off with a double and hustled to third after left fielder Dayan Viciedo bobbled the ball on the warning track. Starter Erik Johnson retired the next two hitters and appeared he might escape the jam when LeMahieu lined a ball at right fielder Avisail Garcia. Earlier in the game, Garcia robbed LeMahieu of a hit on a similar play. So LeMahieu figured Garcia would come up with this diving catch, too. "Thought I was out," LeMahieu said. Garcia leapt forward and had the ball in his glove, but when he landed, the ground jarred the ball loose, allowing Morneau to trot home with the tying run. Garcia stayed on the ground for several minutes with a jammed left shoulder before walking slowly to the dugout. The team said X-rays were negative for a fracture or a separation. "Right now I have pain," said Garcia, whos scheduled for an MRI on Thursday. Chicago didnt ask for a video review to determine whether Garcia possibly held the ball long enough for an out. "You really have to have a positive view of whether it was a catch," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "You have to have the glove around the ball to be a catch." Chicagos bullpen melted down, giving up six runs in 2 1-3 innings. Belisario gave up five of the runs in the inning, then left with tightness in his back. "He got the ground balls. But they just kept finding the holes," Ventura said. "And it kept going, kept going after that." After struggling in the first two weeks of the season, Jose Abreu heated up at hitter-friendly Coors Field, where he almost wound up. Abreu was 2 for 4 with a double on Wednesday. He had four hits in the series, including his first two homers of the season. The Rockies made a strong push to obtain the Cuban slugger in October before he signed a $68 million, six-year contract with Chicago. Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Abreu was as good as advertised: "All the reports were this guy is a legitimate middle of the order bat. I think we saw that." Before the game, the Rockies recalled Rutledge from Triple-A Colorado Springs, giving the team a backup for shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who has been bothered by tightness in his right quadriceps. Weiss gave Tulowitzki the day off just so hes not "run into the ground this early." To make room on the roster, Colorado optioned struggling right-handed reliever Wilton Lopez to Colorado Springs. Lopez has an 11.37 ERA in four games. NOTES: The White Sox open a seven-game homestand on Thursday against Cleveland, with LHP John Danks (0-0) slated to take the mound. ... 3B Conor Gillaspie had a two-run single for Chicago in the fifth. ... The Rockies have their first day off of the season Thursday before opening a three-game series in San Francisco. ... Weiss is hoping RHP Tyler Chatwood (hamstring) will be ready to rejoin the rotation on Sunday when hes eligible to come off the DL. ... Cuddyer has hit in all 10 games to start the season. ... LHP Boone Logan made his Rockies debut in the ninth, getting the last out of the game. Mike Matheny Jersey . -- Mixed martial arts fighter Cristiane Justino Santos has been suspended and fined for testing positive for steroids. Mark McGwire Jersey . "I had a pretty good year," the soft-spoken Granberg told TSN.ca with a grin from the teams annual rookie tournament in London. A fourth-round selection in 2010, Granberg is worth keeping an eye on with NHL training camps rolling around in less than a week. The six-foot-two, 200-pound defender may not possess the wow-inspiring theatrics of fellow prospect Morgan Rielly, but nonetheless has a chance to contribute with the Leafs when all is said and done this season.SPARTA, Ky. -- Brad Keselowski took his final lead on the 156th lap and went on to a rain-shortened victory Friday night in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Kentucky Speedway. Showers halted the race at lap 170 in the scheduled 200-lap, 300-mile event, but drivers were expecting it to resume before another pocket of rain forced officials to call it off. Keselowski settled for doing victory spinouts, being careful to avoid sliding into the wall on a night mostly spent on firm footing. After Keselowski finished second Thursday night in the Truck Series race, the Sprint Cup champion led four times for 59 laps en route to his second victory of the year and second at the track in three years. Elliott Sadler was second, followed by Truck Series points leader Matt Crafton, Brian Vickers and Kyle Busch. Series points leader Regan Smith saw his 28-point advantage over Justin Allgaier coming in whacked to an eight-point edge over Sam Hornish Jr. after an engine problem that forced him behind the wall and left him 30th, 17 laps down. The night mostly belonged to Busch and eventually Keselowski, who has a chance to add another trophy if he can win Saturday nights 400-mile Cup race. If his first two races and Friday night in particular are any indication, hes certainly the driver to beat. Starting 19th, Keselowski quickly moved the No. 22 Ford into contention to make it a battle between him and Busch on a tripleheader weekend for both. Running in the top five on lap 150, Keselowski eventually got by Sadler for the lead before the sky opened up. "You know, I didnt want it to end this way but we had a great car and we were able to drive to the front," said Keselowski, who set a track record with his fifth top-five Nationwide finish. "We didnt qualifyy like we wanted to but (crew chief) Jeremy Bullins and this team did a great job. Pat Neshek Jersey. "It was just a great car tonight. This is the type of car you get once a year if you are lucky. Driving this car I feel like Jimmie Johnson, this is a rocket." Busch led three times for a race-high 74 laps, mostly before the halfway point. The race featured 12 lead changes among seven drivers. One of the team was defending race winner Austin Dillon, whose quest was keeping the family name in victory lane for the third straight time at Kentucky. The grandson of NASCAR team owner Richard Childress dominated here a year ago, leading 192 laps while averaging a race-record 151.643 in a Chevy sporting RCRs iconic No. 3 made famous by seven-time Cup champion Dale Earnhardt. Dillon led 65 last September to complete a season sweep here. If that wasnt enough motivation for him to stay hot --- not to mention, cutting into his 45-point deficit to first-place Smith -- there was the opportunity to one-up his brother, Ty, who won Thursday nights Truck race. Dillons bid started well as he won the pole with a speed of 175.758 mph and he led the first 18 laps before yielding to Busch and eventually finishing sixth. As for the two Cup heavyweights, they seemed intent on a strong follow-up to their 2-3 finish in the Truck race. Sadler and Crafton had their turns up front as well, but Keselowski carefully threaded his way back into the lead just before showers arrived, turning into a downpour soon after the race was called. "As a racer, you always want to see a restart to get the opportunity to win the race," Sadler said. "But Brad and those guys definitely had a strong car. He got me loose when he was behind me and made a good pass." Stitched JerseysCheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
