Christian Yelich feels like he's not really locked in

DENVER (AP) — — no more than usual Alex Smith Jersey Elite , anyway."Just taking it day by day," the Milwaukee outfielder said.He and the Brewers are certainly dialed in, though. They have won 10 straight and seized a 2-0 lead against Colorado in the NL Division Series heading into Game 3 on Sunday in what could be a cool and damp afternoon in Denver.The Rockies hope a return to Coors Field can ignite their frigid bats. The team hit .154 over the opening two games and went 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position.A rest day couldn't have come at a better time after a week that included travel to Los Angeles and Chicago, on to Milwaukee and then back home."Clear the mind a little bit," Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado said Saturday. "I'm ready to go. We'll be ready to go. It's no problem."Colorado's scuffle at the plate isn't exactly a new phenomenon. The Rockies hit .287 at Coors Field this season, one of their lowest averages in franchise history. Their .256 overall mark remains a team low."No doubt there needs to be adjustments made," Rockies shortstop Trevor Story said. "But it's a good feeling to be back home, where we feel really comfortable hitting."Story is 0 for 8 with five strikeouts in the series. He resembles the Story of last season, when he struck out 191 times, rather than this All-Star version that hit .291 with 37 homers.His swing in the eighth inning Friday epitomized the Rockies difficulty in timing Brewers pitchers http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline … ith-jersey , striking out on a breaking pitch from Jeremy Jeffress that hit the dirt way before the plate."Story's a good player. He understands," Arenado said. "He clears his mind pretty quickly."Game 3 features a matchup of contrasting pitchers. Milwaukee's Wade Miley gets by more with sneakiness than speed. The left-hander is 3-1 with a 4.76 ERA in five career games at Coors Field.Colorado will hand the ball to German Marquez, a right-hander who throws heat and had a team-record 230 strikeouts. He got the call over lefty Kyle Freeland, another one of Colorado's up-and-coming young arms who also happens to be a Denver native and would pitch Monday — if there is a Monday."They have a potent lineup, but I'm going to execute my plan, which is executing my pitches, hitting my target, and give our team a chance to win games," Marquez said.Asked whether he would like to close the series out as quickly as possible, Brewers manager Craig Counsell just smiled."Would we prefer to win it in three games? Of course Authentic Matt Ioannidis Jersey ," Counsell said. "But they have something to say about that."Counsell appreciates that anyone can step into the spotlight at any moment. Like in Game 2 when it was the turn of 38-year-old catcher Erik Kratz, who had two RBIs."If you're in the lineup, you get four shots. Everybody is going to get four shots," Counsell said. "So last night, Erik was the one that cashed in on a really big opportunity."Sometimes you've got to let these games unfold, and that's how you know how to play them, and that's what we'll continue to do."One factor: The weather. It's supposed to be around 60 on Sunday with a chance of rain."It's not ideal. It wouldn't be anybody's first choice," said Yelich, an NL MVP candidate who is 2 for 5 in the series with a homer and four walks. "They have to pitch in it, they have to hit in it. We have to pitch in it Matt Ioannidis Jersey Elite , we have to hit in it. You have to find a way to win."Being back at home, the Rockies are trying to keep everything as normal as ever. Especially Arenado, who's sticking to his usual routine: Eggs and bacon in the morning with oatmeal and two cups of coffee, head to the park and go straight to the cage to hone his swing."We've won three games in a row before," said Arenado, whose team captured six of seven in their final homestand to force a tiebreaking game 163 in Los Angeles for an NL West title the Dodgers wound up winning. "But it's not an easy task with the Brewers."The energized crowd should help. It's the first home game for the Rockies since 2009."Everywhere we've played, it's been super loud, and everybody hates us," Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon said. "So now it'll be super loud and everybody loves us. I hope." CLEVELAND (AP) — Andrew Miller's start-and-stop season has been disrupted again.The Cleveland Indians placed the invaluable reliever on the 10-day disabled list with shoulder soreness, an injury the AL Central leaders hope gets better in time for the postseason.Manager Terry Francona said Miller complained about his shoulder Tuesday and http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline … dis-jersey , after consulting with the team's medical staff, received a cortisone injection."It was the right thing to do for him," Francona said. "We've talked about it before, even when it's maybe not convenient you need to do the right thing. Andrew is going to pitch for a long time and he's carried such a big load for us that we need to look out for him a little bit, too."Francona said Miller be completely shut down while the shot takes affect and there's no timetable on when the 32-year-old will pitch again."We're just going to go off of Andrew," Francona said Wednesday before the Indians hosted the Minnesota Twins. "We're going to do what's right by him. We'll update you as we go. We just don't know what that is."This is Miller's third trip to the DL this season. He was previously sidelined with a hamstring issue and then inflammation in his right knee. It's just been that kind of year for the two-time All-Star."Sometimes things happen so you just do the best you can," Francona said. "He's not going to quit and we're not going to quit either."One of baseball's best relievers when healthy, Miller is 2-3 with a 3.38 ERA in just 27 games this season. He made 57 appearances in 2017, his first full season with the Indians, who acquired him in a trade with the New York Yankees in July 2016.Francona rode Miller hard in the '16 postseason Authentic Adrian Peterson Jersey , when he dominated hitters while helping Cleveland get to the World Series for the first time since 1997. Miller went 2-0 with a 1.40 ERA and struck out 30 in 19 1-3 innings.Miller is only under contract through this season, and to protect themselves against his injuries and the future, the Indians acquired closer Brad Hand and right-hander Adam Cimber before the trade deadline.To take Miller's roster spot, the Indians recalled Tyler Olson from Triple-A Columbus. The lefty was up twice previously this season with Cleveland, posting a 1-1 record with a 6.75 ERA in 32 outings.
