If the Colorado Rockies hope to reach the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time in club history Chris Rusin Jersey , they’ll need to beat the teams they’re expected to beat.night in the series finale against the Los Angeles Angels at Angel Stadium.The Rockies (71-60) missed an opportunity to move into a tie atop the National League West by blowing a late lead against the Angels on Monday night in a 10-7 loss.Article continues below ...Colorado had moved ahead 7-5 on a grand slam by DJ LeMahieu in the eighth inning and appeared on the verge of handing the Angels their seventh straight defeat, but Los Angeles came back with five runs in the bottom half of the inning courtesy of five walks from the bullpen and a bases-loaded two-out throwing error by shortstop Trevor Story.The loss left the Rockies a game behind the Arizona Diamondbacks, who lost 2-0 at the San Francisco Giants on Monday night.Colorado fell to 25-25 this season against teams below .500.They’ll get a chance to improve on that mark over the next eight games, all against teams that entered Tuesday with losing records. On the flip side, Colorado has the second-most victories against teams with winning records (46-35).During one stretch this summer, Colorado faced 46 consecutive opponents with a winning record, which tied for the longest stretch in NL history. The Rockies went 30-16 in that span.The Angels (64-68) avoided losing seven in a row for the first time in two years.Reduced to playing spoiler, Los Angeles was swept over the weekend by the American League West-leading Houston Astros at Angel Stadium.The Angels took their first lead since Aug. 19 with a four-run fourth inning on Monday night, moving ahead 4-2 on a three-run homer by Shohei Ohtani. Mike Trout then hit his first home run since July 31 to give the Angels a 5-2 lead.Ohtani is 4-for-8 in his past two starts with two home runs and five RBIs.“He’s impressive off the charts,” Angels outfielder Eric Young Jr. told Fox Sports West after the game. “The natural talent that he is, I’m glad that we’ve got him on our team.”Ohtani mainly starts against right-handers, and Colorado is scheduled to start left-hander Kyle Freeland http://www.rockiesfa...de-davis-jersey , leaving Angels manager Mike Scioscia with another tough decision.Freeland (11-7, 2.96 ERA) is 5-1 with a 2.25 ERA in 14 starts since June 16.Freeland, a Denver native and the eighth overall draft pick in 2014, has pitched at least five innings in his past 14 starts, allowing more than three earned runs just once.“Kyle’s been so consistent,” Rockies manager Bud Black told MLB.com after his last outing. “That’s the thing I’m really proud of and impressed by, just the consistency over the last 3 1/2 months. He’s taking the ball deep into the game, his strike-throwing ability, his ability to make big pitches at certain key parts of the game — as a second-year pitcher, he’s made big strides since his rookie season.”Freeland has never faced the Angels in his two-year career.After 102 major league relief appearances, Angels right-hander Noe Ramirez will make his first career start on Tuesday.Ramirez (4-4, 4.76 ERA) earned his first career save on Monday night. LAS VEGAS (AP) — All-Star outfielder Andrew McCutchen and the Philadelphia Phillies finalized a back-loaded $50 million Jon Gray Jersey , three-year contract on Wednesday, a deal that includes a team option for 2022.McCutchen gets $10 million next season, $17 million in 2020 and $20 million in 2021. The Phillies have a $15 million option for 2022 with a $3 million buyout.The 32-year-old was an All-Star each season from 2011-15, topping .300 in batting average from 2012-14. He was the NL MVP in 2013.McCutchen spent nine years with Pittsburgh before he was traded to San Francisco last winter. He was dealt to the New York Yankees on Aug. 31 and hit .255 with 20 homers and 65 RBIs in 155 games overall this year.McCutchen has 223 homers, a .287 average and 790 RBIs in 10 major league seasons.He would get a $100,000 bonus for winning another MVP, $50,000 for finishing second in the voting and $25,000 for third. He would get $100,000 for World Series MVP, and $50,000 each for League Championship Series MVP Adam Ottavino Jersey , Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awardsPhiladelphia remains interested in Bryce Harper, the top free agent on the market, but has a surplus of outfielders, including Odubel Herrera, Nick Williams, Aaron Altherr and Roman Quinn.Rhys Hoskins is moving from left field to first base after the team traded Carlos Santana to Seattle for infielder Jean Segura last week.Herrera, a former All-Star, is a trade candidate. He struggled in the second half last season and finished with career lows in batting average (.255) and on-base percentage (.310).Philadelphia pursued Patrick Corbin and is still seeking a left-handed starter.___
