TO THE HOUSE, AND BACK

DENVER — The Colorado Rockies begin a weekend series Friday with the Miami Marlins Chargers Elite Jerseys , hoping to finish a homestand by taking advantage of another National League East laggard.

A 6-4 win over the New York Mets on Thursday enabled the Rockies to take three of four games in that series. The Marlins (29-46), who were off Thursday, have the worst road record (15-25) in the NL but have won nine of their past 16 games overall. They are 3-3 on a road trip that included stops in Baltimore and San Francisco and will end in Denver.

“This has been a good little three-game swing for us,” Rockies manager Bud Black said after his team beat the Mets for the third straight time. “We were scuffling a little bit on the mound. We were starting to hit. So collectively, these three hopefully produce a little momentum going forward.”

The Rockies (37-38) broke their major-league record-tying string of allowing at least eight runs in nine consecutive home games but have won a season-high tying three straight games at Coors Field where they are 14-20.

Jon Gray (6-7 5.89) will start for the Rockies against Marlins left-hander Wei-Yin Chen (2-3, 5.91). Gray is 0-2, 7.36 in his past two starts, the most recent Sunday at Texas where he gave up one run in five innings and left after giving up five runs and facing four batters in the sixth. The last was Jurickson Profar, who hit a two-run homer that gave the Rangers a 6-5 lead. Gray ended up with a no-decision in what became a 13-12 loss to the Rangers.

Gray is 1-2, 6.75 in four starts against the Marlins and 3-3, 6.45 in seven starts at home this season.

Chen gave up three runs in six innings Saturday at Baltimore and won 5-4. It was his first victory in nine starts since he made his 2018 debut against the Rockies in Miami and held them to one run in 5 1/3 innings.

Chen is 1-3, 8.88 in six starts on the road this season. He’s 1-1, 7.07 in three starts against the Rockies and will be pitching at Coors Field for the first time.

The Marlins scored three runs in the ninth Monday to beat the Giants 5-4. They are coming off a 6-5 loss Wednesday to the Giants. In that game, Miami came back from a 5-1 deficit and scored two runs in the seventh and two more in the ninth before J.B. Shuck struck out to end the game with runners on first and second. For a young team in a total rebuild like the Marlins, a stirring comeback win followed two games later by a close-but-not-quite effort can help.

“If we’re going to grow,” veteran Marlins outfielder Cameron Maybin said after Wednesday’s game, “these are the kinds of series that you need to be in. The type of series where the fans come at you. I think series like this can help a young team like us grow, more than anything.”

Unlike the Marlins, the Rockies, an NL wild-card team last year Chris Tierney Jersey , have realistic aspirations of returning to the postseason, something they have never done in consecutive seasons.

A series win against Miami would complete a 5-2 homestand for the Rockies, a series sweep would make it 6-1 Regardless, a stumble against the Marlins would be ill-advised.

“We know that we’re a good team that’s got to take care of business, especially when we play at home and play teams that everybody will say on paper we’re going to win those games,” Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez said. “I think we’re making progress. We’re hitting the ball well. Pitching is making progress, too. We believe in each other. I think this is the perfect time for us to continue to play good baseball and finish strong the first half.”

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens have been perfect inside the opponent’s 20-yard line this season, scoring 12 touchdowns on a dozen trips in the red zone.

Denver still hasn’t quite got the hang of it yet.

Baltimore (2-1) went 3 for 3 in the red zone Sunday and came away with a 27-14 victory. Joe Flacco threw a 12-yard touchdown pass, Alex Collins scored on a 6-yard run and Javorius Allen pounded in from the 1.

“You have to give the players credit,” coach John Harbaugh said. “Joe has done a great job. We’ve run the ball down there very well. It doesn’t always show up on the stats, but you have to be able to run the ball in the red zone.”

Denver (2-1) got inside the Baltimore 20 twice in the fourth quarter, looking to cut the deficit under a touchdown. On each occasion, the Broncos came away with nothing.

Coach Vance Joseph lamented his team’s mistakes and penalties, but acknowledged that the Ravens have what it takes to score when close to the goal line.

“We gave them a couple of short fields and they punched it in on us,” Joseph said. “They’ve been great in the red zone. So, it’s what we expected.”

Some things we learned from the Broncos-Ravens game:

HAPPY TO SHARE

Collins and Allen are developing into a potent 1-2 punch.

Collins rushed 18 times for 68 yards, and Allen scored twice. Allen’s 12-yard TD catch in the second quarter gave a Ravens a 17-14 lead and they never looked back.

Allen said he’s delighted with the team’s two-pronged approach.

“You see what it can do,” he said. “You never know who’s getting the ball, where it’s going. Run, pass Torrey Smith Jersey , we can do it all. As long as they keep drawing up plays for us to make, we’re going to make them.”

ROOKIE EJECTED

The Broncos didn’t establish the run, despite totaling 120 yards on the ground and averaging 5.0 yards a carry.

One reason is that Phillip Lindsay was ejected just before halftime for throwing a punch in a scrum after a fumble.

Lindsay became the first undrafted rookie to total 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first two games.

The streak ended with a thud Sunday. He ran for 20 yards and didn’t catch a pass.

“He’s obviously a big part of what we do offensively,” Joseph said. “Losing him, that’s a big deal.”

SELF-INFLICTED WOUNDS: The fact that the Broncos were assessed 120 yards on 13 penalties was a huge factor in the defeat.

Not only did Lindsay get 15 yards for throwing a punch, but rookie Isaac Yiadom got 15 yards for delivering a push — while standing on the sideline during a kickoff return.

“We can’t do that. It probably cost us 20 points today,” Joseph said of the infractions. “A lot of the penalties really were guys losing their composure.”

TO THE HOUSE, AND BACK

Ravens inside linebacker Patrick Onwuasor effectively ended the Broncos’ fourth-quarter comeback attempt with his first career interception.

With the Broncos at the Ravens’ 15-yard-line, Onwuasor picked off a Case Keenum pass and sprinted for an apparent touchdown, stumbling into the end zone while getting swarmed by his teammates.

The play, however was called back when linebacker Matthew Judon was called for an illegal block.

“I broke on the ball and I saw the play in front of me,” Onwuasor said. “I saw Judon put a great block out there in front of me on the return, but it got called back. Judon may owe me some food or something.”

NOT MILLER TIME: Baltimore’s shaky offensive line should have been an opportunity for Broncos linebacker Von Miller to enhance his sack total, which stood at an NFL-best four before the game.

Instead, Miller was largely quiet. He had two tackles and no sack.

He was also upset about being called offside twice.

“I don’t understand it,” he said. “When we practice, we don’t have all those penalties. We have to clean that up.”
