stepping away from the game to avoid severe

DENVER — The surging San Francisco Giants open a three-game series Monday at Coors Field Rock Ya-Sin Jersey , where they have fared poorly. But ace left-hander Madison Bumgarner, who is in vintage form, will start against the Colorado Rockies in a sequel of sorts.

Bumgarner (1-2, 2.51) and Rockies left-hander Kyle Freeland (7-6, 3.29), who has been the Rockies’ best starter, opposed each other Wednesday at AT&T Park. Both starters pitched seven scoreless innings before the Giants won 1-0 on Brandon Crawford’s walk-off homer.

The Giants have lost 12 of their past 14 games at Coors Field. But they began their current road trip by sweeping three games at Arizona — their first sweep at Chase Field since September 2016 — giving the Giants (45-40) 10 wins in their past 12 games.

The Giants are 19-26 on the road, which is the second-worst road record in the National League. But they have won eight of their past 14 road games.

The Giants are tied for second in the NL West with the Los Angeles Dodgers, 2 1/2 games behind the Diamondbacks. That is the closest the Giants have been to first place since June 10 http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/ben-banogu-jersey , when they were also 2 1/2 games behind.

The Giants got strong starts from Andrew Suarez and Dereck Rodriguez while beating the Diamondbacks 2-1 and 7-0 and overcame a poor start by Derek Holland to win the series finale, 9-6.

“These are big games for us, for sure,” Giants catcher Buster Posey said after Saturday’s win. “I think we all collectively know we’ve got to play better on the road. … We go to Denver, where we haven’t played well the past couple of years. It’s a matter of keeping our focus and executing.”

Bumgarner’s execution has been uncommonly good lately.

He has a string of 16 consecutive scoreless innings dating back to June 16 against the Dodgers at Los Angeles. He then worked eight scoreless innings June 21 against San Diego and limited the Rockies to two hits Wednesday in seven innings.

That gave Bumgarner back-to-back scoreless outings of at least seven innings for the first time in his career. In 27 starts in his career, Bumgarner is 12-7 with a 2.92 ERA against the Rockies.

At Coors Field, he is 5-5 with an ERA of 4.00 in 13 starts. He hasn’t pitched in Colorado since 2016.

This is the second season in the majors for Freeland, who is 4-2 with an ERA of 2.61 in seven starts against the Giants. He’s 2-0 in three starts against them this year.

Freeland has allowed three or fewer runs in 11 starts and four runs in the other. In six starts at Coors Field this year, Freeland is 4-2 Parris Campbell Jersey , 2.95.

Freeland held the Giants to four singles Wednesday, and registered 12 ground-ball outs.

Bumgarner gave up a single and a double, allowed one runner to reach third base and struck out eight (six swinging). Freeland threw 104 pitches, 67 for strikes. Bumgarner finished with 101 pitches, 66 strikes.

“It was a great matchup between two lefties, one just starting his career and getting his feet on the ground, and Bumgarner obviously we know what he’s done in his career,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. “It was impressive from Kyle in terms of the changeup usage, keeping the ball down Will Harris Jersey , enough inside to keep the righties honest, changing speeds, sinking the ball.”

The Rockies (41-43) dropped two of three at San Francisco but then won two of three at Los Angeles, ending a 3-3 road trip with a 6-4 loss Sunday that kept them six games behind Arizona.

The Rockies are 26-21 on the road, but their 15-22 home record is the second-worst in the NL.

Time flies when you’re having fun.Or, apparently, when you are a professional athlete playing in the NFL. The shelf life for players in the National Football League is perhaps the shortest in all of professional sports, with the average amount of years played currently hovering around 3.3. With a big influx of professional football players voluntarily stepping away from the game to avoid severe injuries, it’s not hard to see why the average span of these athletes’ careers continue to dwindle each year. Football is by far the most dangerous of all of the major American sports http://www.detroitlionsteamonline.com/austin-bryant-jersey , so naturally turnover is a normal and accepted thing. While there are always freak athletes like Tom Brady who continue to dominate into their early forties, there are also plenty of players that fizzle out of the league at a much quicker rate. Although sometimes it can be tough to speculate which players are on their way out, oftentimes the writing is just on the wall. We decided here at The Sportster to rank the top 15 players who are most likely on their way out of the NFL by the time the 2018 season wraps around. Obviously this isn’t a list of random undrafted journeyman and struggling rookies, but rather, big ticket players who have had successful careers in the NFL up to this point. While it’s impossible to get such a list 100% correct, we think we managed to put a solid list of notable names together. Let us know what you think!
