He was telling me theres no need to do that. Just focus on getting strike one, strike two. After that, you can focus on getting him out.Martinez allowed five hits, no walks and struck out five. He went into the game 0-6 in eight starts at Globe Life Park in Arlington and 0-10 in 14 starts at night.Both runs scored in the fourth inning, on a 405-foot home run to centre field by Robinson Chirinos and an RBI single by David Robertson.The Rangers have won three straight and 10 of their last 11.To go ahead and have a good string of games right here at the end gets their confidence going, Rangers interim manager Tim Bogar said.The Astros, already assured of their best finish since 2010, have dropped six of their last eight. Interim manager Tom Lawless said his team might be pressing but shows no quit.Twenty-seven outs are in that game, Lawless said. Were going to play 27 outs.Martinez has a 2.12 earned run average over his last five starts.

Neftali Feliz, Texas regular closer, was rested after throwing 31 pitches the last two days.HUNT IN OCTOBER: Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said he hopes to name a permanent replacement for manager Ron Washington inside of October.

Sean Smith Raiders Jersey .Y. - Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby captured his second career Art Ross trophy on Sunday after leading the NHL in scoring this season. Kenny Stabler Raiders Jersey . The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the confidential nature of the search, confirmed reports by several media outlets. The interview took place in Southern California on Monday. . And thats about it. After the Salukis 73-65 loss at Murray State on Tuesday night, Hinson called his players "uncoachable," "a bunch of mamas boys" and compared the disciplining of his young team to housebreaking a puppy. DENVER -- Jimmy Rollins and Ryan Howard led the way out of the Philadelphia Phillies offensive slump. Rollins homered early, then hit a go-ahead single in the eighth inning that sent the Phillies past the Colorado Rockies 10-9 Sunday. Rollins finished with three hits as the Phillies averted a series sweep. Ryan Howard added four hits, including a homer and triple while driving in three runs. "It was good, it was something that was needed," Rollins said. "All those runs were needed. Every time we come here, they find a way to put up some runs. Weve played some interesting series. Today, it was needed to get back in the left column." Philadelphia had gone four games without an extra-base hit before breaking loose. They had scored a total of only two runs in dropping the first two games to Colorado. "It was well overdue," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Just some good at-bats. Howard really broke out in a good way. It was good to see that good contact. Hitting balls to left centerfield is a good thing for him. He broke out in a big way." Howard finished a double shy of hitting for the cycle. He actually ended up on second on a seventh inning drive to right field that got past a charging Brandon Barnes but the official scorer ruled the RBI hit a single and an error. Sandberg questioned the ruling and Howard said he hopes it will be overturned. "He went for a shoestring catch there, and to me, the ball got by him for a double," Sandberg said. "He went for the catch. Thats not a guarantee that he knocks that down and makes it a single. He went for the catch on a tough ball, for me." Howard hung on to the ball just in case the hit is eventually ruled a double. The last Phillies player to hit for the cycle was David Bell on June 28, 2004, against Montreal. Rockies star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez exited early because of a sore left knee. He appeared to tweak it running out a high chopper to end the sixth inning. He is listed as day to day with left knee tendinitis by the Rockies but Gonzalez said hes been dealing with the issue for more than a year off and on and hopes to be back in the lineup on Monday. "At the moment, it feels bad, bbut after a while it gets better," Gonzalez said. Marquette King Raiders Jersey. "Im planning to play (Monday). Its something I have deal with. I just have to be smart about it, and I want to keep playing, so thats what Im planning to do." Justin Morneau homered and drove in five runs for the Rockies. The teams combined for 30 hits, 15 for extra bases. Jake Diekman (2-1) got the win despite allowing two runs in 1 1-3 innings. Jonathan Papelbon earned his fifth save in six chances. Matt Belisle (0-2) gave up Rollins single that broke an 8-all tie. After Rollins put the Phillies ahead in the eighth, Chase Utley added an RBI grounder. Charlie Blackmon homered in the bottom half for Colorado. Philadelphia missed adding an insurance run in the ninth when Rockies manager Walt Weiss challenged the ruling that Freddy Galvis had beaten out a grounder. The replay showed that second baseman Josh Rutledges throw to first arrived an instant before Galvis stepped on the bag. The Phillies used a three-run seventh inning to go in front 8-6 on sacrifice flies by Utley and Domonic Brown and an RBI single by Howard. Colorado evened the score in its half of the seventh when Troy Tulowitzki doubled ahead of Morneaus homer, his second in as many games. The Rockies went up 4-3 with a three-run third that included Tulowitzkis run-scoring double, Morneaus RBI groundout and a tiebreaking RBI single by Nolan Arenado, who extended his hitting streak to a career high 11 games. Howard hit his fourth homer, a two-run shot off Juan Nicasio in the third. NOTES: Sandberg won a replay challenge in the sixth when the review showed pinch hitter Corey Dickersons foot had slipped off the bag when he was tagged at second. ... Rockies OF-INF Michael Cuddyer missed a third consecutive game with a sore left hamstring. Weiss said before the game that while Cuddyer has shown some improvement, his return is still up in the air and the team expects to know in the next day or two whether hell need additional recovery time that would require a stay on the disabled list. ... Three weeks into the season, Rollins has hit three home runs, already equaling half of his total for all of last season. NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
