PHOENIX (AP) — Colorado’s bid to gain ground in the NL West appeared to be in jeopardy when German Marquez gave up a leadoff double and a two-run homer in the opening inning.The right-hander shook off those two first-pitch hits Andy Pettitte Jersey , shutting down the Arizona Diamondbacks the rest of the way in a game the Rockies needed to win.Marquez struck out 11 in seven innings and Ian Desmond had three RBIs, lifting Colorado to a 6-2 win over the Diamondbacks on Friday night.“After the home run, I saw a little different mound presence from Marquez,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. “He said, ‘Ok, that’s it, nothing else is going to happen.’ That was pretty cool.”The Rockies bounced back nicely after a three-game sweep by the Los Angeles Dodgers dropped them 2 1/2 games back in the NL West and 1 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the second NL wild card.The Cardinals won again, but the Dodgers lost 5-3 to San Diego, leaving the Rockies 1 1/2 back in the division.Marquez (13-10) put them in position, shaking off David Peralta’s homer in the first inning with six scoreless frames. He allowed six hits and tied Pedro Astacio (1999) for second on Colorado’s single-season strikeout list with 210. Marquez is the third Colorado pitcher — with Astacio and Ubaldo Jimenez — with 200 strikeouts in a season.The right-hander’s outing gave the Rockies time to adjust to Zack Greinke.Greinke (14-11) carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning and struck out six, but the Rockies scored four runs in the eighth after he left with one out. Desmond hit a two-run single off Brad Ziegler in Colorado’s team-record 42nd road win.“We are a good team,” Marquez said through a translator. “We always believe in our offense and know that at any given moment Jose Cruz Jr. Jersey , we’re going to break out of this. It was a great feeling to come out of the game and see them put up those runs.”Arizona had its chances, but failed in a couple of key situations while going 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position. The Diamondbacks have lost five of six to drop six games behind the Cardinals in the wild-card race.“I didn’t feel like they were awful pitches, just good hitting,” Ziegler said.Greinke allowed four runs in 6 1/3 innings in a loss to Houston his last start. The right-hander was sharp early on against the Rockies, not allowing a ball out of the infield for the first two innings or a hit until Desmond’s run-scoring single with one out in the fifth.D.J. LeMahieu tied it at 2 with a run-scoring double off Greinke in the sixth.Greinke allowed three runs and four hits in 7 1/3 innings.“You get out to a 2-0 lead you feel like things are going to go in a real good direction, especially the way Zack has thrown the ball,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. “He was executing a great game plan and I thought he had some of the best stuff he had all year. They chipped away on at him and obviously the eighth inning got away from us.”KEY REVIEWColorado’s four-run eighth came after a video review went in its favor.With two runners on and one out, LeMahieu hit a ball back to Ziegler, who fired it to second. Shortstop Nick Ahmed tried to turn a double play, but made a weak throw to first as Charlie Blackmon slid hard into second base.Blackmon kicked his leg out and raised his arms, prompting the Diamondbacks to call for an umpire review for runner interference. After a long review, the play was upheld and the Rockies went on to score four runs in the inning.“It’s pretty clear to me by the letter of the law that it is an illegal slide ,” Ziegler said. “It is unfortunate that they didn’t see it that way. When you watch the replay, it’s obvious that he made contact with his hands.”TRAINER’S ROOMRockies: SS Trevor Story participated in baseball activities prior to Friday’s game, but Black said he still could be out two or three more games with a sore right elbow.UP NEXTDiamondbacks LHP Patrick Corbin is 4-2 with a 2.70 ERA his last nine starts heading into Saturday. Rockies RHP Antonio Senzatela is coming off his first road win since April 27 after allowing a run in five-plus innings against San Francisco. MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota’s pitching staff has finally caught up in the strikeout era, with Jose Berrios leading the way.Berrios became the first Twins pitcher in eight years to reach 200 strikeouts, throwing seven smooth innings in a 2-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox in the first game of a doubleheader before Mitch Garver’s career-high six RBIs fueled a 12-4 victory for the sweep on Friday night.Berrios finished his All-Star season with a career-best 3.84 ERA and 202 strikeouts. The last time a Twins pitcher topped that milestone was Francisco Liriano (201) in 2010, with Johan Santana (235) prior to that in 2007.“That was one of my goals before the season started,” Berrios said. “That’s when I wrote it down, and I accomplished it and I’m thankful to God for that.”Berrios (12-11) struck out nine batters , allowing just three hits and one run on Leury Garcia’s RBI single in the third. Berrios walked four, including Avisail Garcia to lead off the sixth, but he followed that by fanning Daniel Palka, Matt Davidson and Omar Narvarez in a 10-pitch span to finish the inning with his fastball buzzing.“Pretty special kid ,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. “Nice mix of pitches. Breaking ball was diving, sinking. He’s got a quick arm. Just kept us off balance.”The Twins are 16th in the major leagues in strikeouts, after finishing next-to-last in 2017. From 2011 through 2015, they were last.Though Berrios had a 4.15 ERA and just a 3-4 record in 12 starts after the All-Star break, the right-hander took another step toward being the ace at the top of the rotation the Twins have lacked since Santana was traded 11 years ago.“I want to be one of the best pitchers in the league,” Berrios said. “I think I have the material to do that and to be the best pitcher on this team, so that Minnesota can construct around me and build a winning team.”Reynaldo Lopez (7-10) turned in another strong start in the opener for the White Sox, save for matching his season high with five walks over six innings. Tyler Austin’s RBI groundout in the first and Willians Astudillo’s sacrifice fly in the sixth were all the Twins needed to take a game that was originally scheduled for the mid-April weekend when they had three straight games postponed by a snowstorm.Joe Mauer, facing an offseason decision about whether or not to retire at age 35, went 2 for 4 in each game and is batting .362 (21 for 58) over his last 14 starts while reaching base at least once in each.Astudillo has 16 RBIs in his last 15 games for the Twins, who improved to 47-32 at home. They’re 28-12 since June 24, the fifth-best record in MLB in that span.The White Sox , who fell to 8-17 in September, would lose 100 games for the first time since 1970 if they don’t win Saturday or Sunday. They were 63-99 in 2013.NIGHT MOVESGarver went 4 for 5 with doubles to fuel Twins starter Chase DeJong (1-1) in his first major league victory with six strong innings, despite solo home runs by Jose Rondon and Kevan Smith. Robbie Grossman went 2 for 4 with three RBIs for the Twins.Lucas Giolito (10-13) gave up seven runs in 1 1/3 innings for the White Sox, pushing his MLB-worst ERA to 6.13. Hector Santiago threw 97 pitches in relief, allowing seven hits, two walks and one hit batter in 4 2/3 innings.“This leaves a bad taste in my mouth,” Giolito said. “Definitely a lot to work on in the offseason.”WHIFFING WHITIESThe White Sox struck out 18 times during the doubleheader, raising their season total to an MLB-most 1,570. That’s also only one less than the all-time record last year by the Milwaukee Brewers. Yoan Moncada has the team lead with 215, followed by Davidson with 162.FINISHING STRONGLopez logged 40 innings over his last six starts, with a sparkling 1.13 ERA and 41 strikeouts. The 24-year-old finished with a 3.91 ERA in 188 2/3 innings.“I’m leaving this season in a much better way than how I entered the season,” Lopez said through a team interpreter. “I learned a lot.”GIVING BACKThe last time the White Sox played in Minnesota Michael Saunders Jersey , on Aug. 20, Renteria experienced light-headedness in the afternoon and was hospitalized overnight as a precaution. He wound up missing four games. As a thank-you to Hennepin County Medical Center staff for his care, Renteria sent popcorn and donated 200 tickets to children being treated at the facility.TRAINER’S ROOMWhite Sox: LF Nicky Delmonico, who hurt his shoulder on Tuesday, was a late addition to the second-game lineup in place of Adam Engel.Twins: Garver made his first start in 17 games in the nightcap, after recovering from concussion symptoms.“Peace of mind for myself and for the people that care about me,” Garver said.UP NEXTWhite Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon (6-7, 3.61 ERA) will pitch in the third game of the series.Twins: RHP Kyle Gibson (9-13, 3.68 ERA) will start on Saturday night.
