Why the Rockies Can Pay on the MLB LinesThe Rockies rallied for three unearned runs in the top of the ninth inning to end the Braves' five-game winning streak. Ronald Acuna Jr. also failed to hit a home run for the first time in six games after he was drilled by Jose Urena of the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. Acuna left the series finale against the Marlins and did not have an official at-bat, so his five-game homer streak was still intact.Regardless, Colorado capitalized on an error in the ninth and won for the fifth time in six games. Now the Rockies hope lefty Keith Freeland (10-7, 3.02 ERA) can stay hot. Freeland has allowed a maximum of three runs in his past four starts Eugenio Suarez Jersey , and the Rockies are 7-1 in his past eight.Why the Braves Can Pay on the MLB LinesAtlanta was happy to see Acuna back in the lineup a day after getting a major scare. Acuna went 1-for-4 despite the loss, singling on the second pitch he faced to extend his hitting streak to nine games.The Braves will send Sean Newcomb (10-5, 3.40 ERA) to the mound here in an effort to get back on track, and the southpaw has not suffered a loss since July 14. Newcomb is 2-0 in his previous four outings, giving up just one run in three of them. In the other start, he surrendered five runs and 12 hits in four innings to the Milwaukee Brewers, but Atlanta still found a way to pull off an 8-7 victory. Newcomb is 7-2 with a 2.31 ERA in 12 games under the lights.Smart Betting PickThe Braves have not lost consecutive games since July 28, so they have a good chance to bounce back in this spot. Newcomb also faced Colorado back on April 8 and blanked them for six innings on the road with no walks and nine strikeouts in a 4-0 win. Look for a similar performance from him as Atlanta rebounds with another victory.

They came out ready to play today.”Matt Wieters and Trea Turner homered for Washington, and Bryce Harper added an RBI double.The Nationals’ loss Friday night, coupled with the Atlanta Braves’ win, knocked them out of the NL East race. Then, shortly after Saturday’s game began, the St. Louis Cardinals beat the San Francisco Giants on a 10th-inning homer, ending Washington’s slim wild card hopes.“It’s something where we felt like we had the talent in this clubhouse and we still feel like we have the talent in this clubhouse,” Wieters said. “We just didn’t play well enough and that’s why this game’s played on the field and not in the papers and that’s what’s great about it.”Favored to win a third straight division title, the Nationals slid into third place on June 22 and remained there.Ownership stood pat at the July trade deadline Tucker Barnhart Jersey , and the team responded by winning six of seven games. However, a four-game losing streak soon had the Nationals nine games out of first place in mid-August, and the team unloaded players including Daniel Murphy and Matt Adams.The team dealt with injuries to pitchers Stephen Strasburg and Sean Doolittle, as well as Adam Eaton, Murphy and Ryan Zimmerman, but even when healthy, Washington was unable to put together an extended winning stretch. The Nationals are 78-77 with seven games remaining after going 97-65 a year ago.“I think all of us in here would sit here and tell you we came here every day and did everything we could to try and win. At least I did. Because of that I can go home and be at peace with it,” Zimmerman said. “Obviously, it’s frustrating. You want to come out and win every year and have a chance to go into the playoffs.”Voth (1-1), making his second major league start http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-harvey-jersey , allowed only an infield single to Michael Conforto leading off the fourth inning. Voth struck out five with two walks in five innings.“He kept us off balance,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. “He had a good curveball I thought. He was able to throw it for strikes … and then he got it down when he needed to, and his fastball command was pretty good.”Even with Saturday’s win, the Nationals will lose the season series to the fourth-place Mets.Turner’s 18th homer of the season, a two-run shot, put Washington ahead in the third, and Wieters added a three-run homer off reliever Jerry Blevins in the sixth.New York’s Corey Oswalt (3-3) allowed two runs over five innings.Matt Grace, Justin Miller, Jimmy Cordero and Austen Williams each worked an inning for Washington in relief of Voth.Harper drew his 125th walk of the season, a career high and a Nationals record.STREAKINGWashington’s Anthony Rendon extended his on-base streak to 30 games with a sixth-inning double Scott Schebler Jersey , and Turner extended his on-base streak to 22 games with a first-inning double.TRAINER’S ROOMMets: 2B Jeff McNeil was given the day off.Nationals: OF Eaton (sore and stiff left knee) was out of the starting lineup for the fifth time in six games.UP NEXTLHP Steven Matz (5-11, 4.18 ERA) makes his sixth start of the season against the Nationals, who will start RHP Erick Fedde (2-3, 5.02) in the series finale.
