    导出博客文章NEW YORK -- Daniel Descalso took a calculated risk in a big spot. Cheap Red Sox Jerseys Authentic .And it paid off big time.With his team trying to rally against Mets closer Jeurys Familia, the Rockies first baseman stepped to the plate with runners on first and second and nobody out.After fouling off his first two sacrifice attempts, he found himself in an unenviable position against the NLs save leader.Rather than swing away with two strikes, he squared to bunt again.The usually steady Familia stumbled for a second straight game, allowing two runs in the ninth inning and Colorado beat New York 2-1 Thursday for their seventh win in eight games.Less than 24 hours after Familias streak of 52 consecutive regular-season saves was snapped, the right-hander entered in the top of the ninth with a 1-0 lead, and couldnt hold it.Trevor Story had a leadoff single and stole second. After fellow rookie David Dahl walked, Descalso bunted up the first base line. Mets catcher Rene Rivera watched as the ball spun toward foul territory but it stopped fair, loading the bases with no out.I knew it had a lot of English on it and I was looking back to try to see if it was going foul and I guess it stopped right on the line, Descalso said.I didnt want to hit into a double play. Hes got a good sinker and if I put it in play good chance its going to be on the ground, so I decided to take a chance and get the bunt down 0-2.With one out, Familia (2-3) got pinch-hitter Cristhian Adames to hit a slow grounder to the right side. First baseman James Loney misplayed the ball and Story scored to make it 1-all. Familia then threw a wild pitch, allowing Dahl to cross the plate with the go-ahead run.Familia is as good as there is in the game, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. Their staff overall, youre not going to come in here and put up big innings and big crooked numbers. Youve got to scratch and claw for everything.Dealing with a rare early start to open a series because of a camp day at Citi Field, neither offense was able to do much against starters Jacob deGrom and Tyler Anderson.DeGrom allowed only one runner to reach second base in seven scoreless innings.Rivera drove in the only Mets run in the second inning with a double into the right-center field gap, but was easily tagged out at third trying to stretch it into a triple.Anderson struck out five and walked none, allowing seven hits over six innings.The goal every time is to try to give up zero runs, Anderson said. You do realize in a game like this that if you give them up youve really got to try to limit them.Jordan Lyles (3-3) pitched a scoreless eighth for the Rockies, and closer Carlos Estevez had a perfect ninth for his 11th save.New York loaded the bases with no outs in the seventh inning off of reliever Jake McGee. Right-hander Scott Oberg came on to retire three straight batters to end the threat.Colorado had been 0-41 this season when trailing after eight innings before Thursdays win, a victory which snapped a 10-game road losing streak against the Mets.Thats one of the better wins of the year, if not the best, Weiss said. Really proud of our guys.WHO WANTS IT?Rockies catcher Tony Wolters and Descalso collided in front of home plate in the bottom of the fourth, both going after Wilmer Flores popup. The ball started in foul territory, but drifted fair. Each fielder fell to the ground after the collision, with Wolters holding on for the out. They both remained in the game.QUICK STARTDahl has hit safely in his first four games in the majors, including his first multi-hit game on Thursday.TRAINERS ROOMMets: 3B Jose Reyes missed his third straight game with a strained left ribcage, hurt during his final at-bat in the first game of a doubleheader on Tuesday. He was pretty sore last night when he left here, Mets manager Terry Collins said before the game on Thursday. I talked to the trainers before I left and they said theres just no way hes going to be able to play tomorrow. ... OF Yoenis Cespedes was not in the starting lineup due to a flare-up of a right quad injury first sustained on July 8. Last night he came in when the game was over and said it was starting to bother him pretty bad, Collins said. Cespedes was walked intentionally as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and was promptly lifted for a pinch runner.Rockies: OF Gerardo Parra (sprained left ankle) is set to begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Hartford on Friday. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Jun. 17, retroactive to the 15th.UP NEXTRockies: RHP Tyler Chatwood (9-6, 3.65) takes the hill on Friday night.

TORONTO -- Scott Dixon said hed never been on a stranger podium. Dixon was joined by Sebastien Bourdais and Dario Franchitti but he was the only one who appeared to be celebrating after winning the Honda Indy Toronto for the first time in his career. Bourdais, who should have been overjoyed at his first podium finish since 2007, watched his second-place trophy fall off the base and smash on the ground. Franchitti, thinking he had finished third, was told moments before being doused in champagne that hed been penalized 25 seconds and was actually 13th. After the race the call was again reviewed and Franchittis third-place finish was restored. "I felt bad for Sebastien. That sucked," said Dixon, who made a pass on Bourdais with eight laps left in the 85-lap race. "Dropping that nice trophy. It bounced twice, too, so third time lucky I guess it smashed and the funniest thing though is you see it go back past Dario and he ... just watched it. So that was pretty funny." Dixon was enjoying himself all day. Saturdays victory was his second of the week and the season after capturing Pocono last Sunday, and moved him into third overall in the points standings. It came after the New Zealand native secured the pole in qualifying earlier in the day for Sundays race, the second of a doubleheader at Exhibition Place. Dixon also joined Bourdais, Franchitti and Torontos Paul Tracy for seventh on the all-time wins list with his 31st victory. "Basically for me it means a lot," said Dixon. "To think were all tied for what, seventh or something, but to think that the next group of people have names of Unser, Andretti and Foyt, you know thats pretty special to even be on the same list as those guys." Franchitti was at a loss for words when IndyCar penalized him for blocking rival Will Power on a restart on Lap 79. The three-time champion had started from the pole, but suffered from tire degradation and had to work back through the field. The same restart that saw Dixon rocket to victory featured fourth-place Power try to pass Franchitti only to shoot straight into a tire wall. After the race, Marco Andretti passed both drivers when Franchittis penalty moved him to third. Before the penalty was reversed, Franchitti said he had just been defending the inside racing line like he had through all 85 laps of the 1.75-mile street course at Exhibition Place. He said he would protest the call if he could, but it was reversed well after the race anyway. "It will be very interesting to know how they make decisions up there sometimes," said Franchitti. "I think it involves a dice and blindfold." The comment will likely anger IndyCar officials after race director Beaux Barfield missed the event with personal reasons. He was replaced by former race director Brian Barnhart, who was removed from the job at the end of the 2011 season following public spats with Power and Helio Castroneves. Andretti, the son of Michael Andretti who won the race seven times during his career, watched Franchitti and Power duel but said he didnt want to take a side. Bill Lee Jersey. "But if it moves me up to third, that was definitely a block," he said with laughter. Bourdais meanwhile said it was right that Dixon passed him because the fastest car should always win. The 2004 winner in Toronto said he wouldnt miss the broken trophy. "Ive got plenty of trophies," said the French driver. "Its not what makes your day. What makes your day is to have a day like this ... Today we drove well, fought hard, got the result in the end." The race continued a tradition of disappointment for the Canadian drivers. James Hinchcliffe of Oakville, Ont., finished eighth after starting 13th -- his best finish in Toronto in three IndyCar seasons after being knocked out of the last two races -- while Alex Tagliani of Lachenaie, Que., ran into Simon Pagenaud on Lap 82 and ended up 17th. Ryan Hunter-Reay, last years winner and the defending series champion, was bumped into a banner and out of contention by teammate E.J. Viso on Lap 79, leading to a restart on the final lap. Power, who started third, led the race after 61 laps but conceded first place to Dixon and failed to take the lead after Dixon pitted. Power dropped back to third shortly after when a quick pit stop also put Bourdais just ahead. On Lap 64, Justin Wilson brought the pack together with a full-course caution after bouncing off the wall and into Charlie Kimball and Ryan Briscoe, who injured his wrist in the accident and was later taken to a hospital. On the restart, Bourdais moved by Dixon on a pass that was reviewed but later approved by IndyCar officials. The lead lasted until Dixons strong pass in the dying moments of the race. The much-anticipated standing start to the race never happened. Drivers were set for the unusual start -- IndyCars first since 2008 -- but it was aborted when Josef Newgardens car stalled on the grid. IndyCar immediately changed to the normal rolling start, but the race didnt get a green flag until Newgardens car was taken off the track after stalling again. Race officials later opted to try the standing start again Sunday. When the race finally began, every car made it through the slippery first turn for a clean start. Dixon, who would normally be spending the night celebrating his victory with a drink, said he would instead be preparing for a Sunday race he thinks could get testy. "Thats kind of the tough part about today," said Dixon. "If people had a bad day today theyre going to take it out tomorrow. I guess if you had a good day you just hope youre not on the receiving end of that." Notes: Takuma Sato was put on probation for five races after running into Hunter-Reay in pit lane at Pocono on Sunday. ... Justin Wilson stalled on pit road and started the race from back of the pack.
