Two Texas errors in the sixth led to an unearned run for Colorado. “It was kind of stunning,” Rangers manager Chris Woodward said. “He didn’t feel that great, which is amazing. He didn’t throw his best. After the fourth or fifth inning, he obviously knew he had to pick us up. We weren’t hitting much. He picked our defense up by getting out of that (sixth) inning, only gave up one that inning. Solak evened the score at 1-1 when he led off the fifth with his first homer of the season, driving the first pitch from Ryan Castellani into the right field seats. The homer snapped the Rangers’ four-game homerless streak, their longest since going homerless for four games Sept. 4-7, 2015.Solak helped to tie the game again in the seventh, doubling off Jeff Hoffman and scoring on Rougned Odor’s single.Daniel Bard (1-1) took the loss. He hit pinch hitter Derek Dietrich with a pitch leading off the eighth. He scored from third on Isiah Kiner-Falefa’s double-play grounder.The Rockies scored in their half of the first on an RBI groundout by Arenado.Colorado starter Ryan Castellani, who pitched four hitless innings in his major league debut at Seattle last week, went 4 2/3 innings in his second career start. He allowed two hits, both to Solak, and fanned seven, striking out the side in the first and third innings. “After the eighth inning, he came by me and I knew I wasn’t going to take him out,” Woodward added. “I said, ’How are you feeling? He said, ‘I’m going to finish this thing.’ I said, ‘Well, then go do it.’ That was it.”Lynn fanned six, struck out the side in the eighth before closing out his first complete game since Sept. 11, 2014, at Cincinnati. “I actually enjoy pitching here,” said Lynn, who threw 110 pitches in going the distance at hitter-friendly Coors Field. “It’s weird. It’s cool, it’s dry, you don’t sweat. You’ve just got to outlast the other pitcher. That’s the way I think about it when I come here. If I outlast the other starter, you get a win. I was told that a long time ago in my earlier years.”He lowered his ERA to 1.11. It was the third career complete game for Lynn, who also beat the Rockies in Texas on opening day with six scoreless innings.“He was on again tonight,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. “We just couldn’t solve him. He kept us off-balance. He had enough velocity and he kept his velocity the whole game.” Lynn tosses 2-hit complete game, Rangers beat Rockies 3-2 read more
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says he is experiencing the “worst period and results” in his managerial career.The Premier League champions have won two and lost three of seven top flight games this season and are 14th.”I get it as a fantastic experience – an experience that I don’t want to repeat,” he said before Saturday’s home game against Southampton.”To come after 15 years is too late but it’s helping me to be better. It is a great negative experience.”Mourinho said there were no unrest within the Chelsea squad and his players were behaving in a “great” manner, despite the side being eight points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United.”The players, when they make a mistake, they know and they feel,” he said. “We speak openly, no prima donnas. When you make a mistake you have to speak about it. I call it ‘coaching’.”Mourinho kept his own counsel when asked about the controversy over former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro.Carneiro and head physio Jon Fearn were criticised by the Portuguese for treating Eden Hazard with the side already down to 10 men against Swansea earlier on this season.The club doctor, 42, had her role downgraded before she decided to leave the club.The Football Association cleared Mourinho of making discriminatory comments to Carneiro – a decision criticised by Women in Football as well as FA board member Heather Rabbatts. “For the last two months I did not open my mouth and I will keep like this,” said Mourinho.”One day I will speak, and I will choose that day.”Asked about FA chief Greg Dyke’s comments that he should apologise, Mourinho replied: “That’s the same answer. I am quiet about it for a long time.”I read, and listen, and watch, and I am quiet.”Responding to a suggestion that commenting might help the issue go away, he said: “I can be here all day. My chance to speak will come.” –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySports read more
