DENVER -- The Arizona Diamondbacks finally gave Paul Goldschmidt a night off, and recent call-up Nick Evans filled in quite nicely for the first baseman. [url=http://www.cheapairmax270canada.com/]Air Max 270 Clearance Canada[/url] . Evans and Chris Owings hit back-to-back homers, rookie Chase Anderson won his fourth straight start and the Diamondbacks beat the slumping Colorado Rockies 4-2 on Tuesday. The solo shot by Evans in the fourth was his first homer since Sept. 3, 2011, when he was with the New York Mets. He wasnt sure if a moment like this would ever arrive again, especially after missing most of 2012 with a broken hand and not having a job last season until the Diamondbacks called a few days before the season -- with only a spot open at Double-A Mobile. The veteran still jumped at the chance. "You start to question," said Evans, who was recalled from Triple-A Reno last week. "Its not easy to get here. ... This is definitely satisfying." Evans was in the lineup because manager Kirk Gibson decided it was a good time to rest Goldschmidt. It was the sluggers first day off of the season after 59 straight games, one shy of the club record of 60 set by Travis Lee in 1998. Maybe another break for Goldschmidt on Wednesday? "Yeah, I wouldnt count on that," Evans said. "If I was a betting man, Id count on him being in there." Anderson (4-0) was hardly intimidated by hitter friendly Coors Field or one of the top lineups in the league. He didnt overpower the Rockies so much as keep them guessing, throwing six effective innings in his longest outing since he was recalled from Reno on May 6. He becomes the fifth rookie since 1998 to win his opening four starts. The right-hander allowed four hits and one run -- a homer by D.J. LeMahieu -- to help the Diamondbacks stop a three-game skid. "I tried to stick with my game plan, pitch off that," Anderson said. "If you try to pitch to the park, sometimes youre not very successful." Jorge De La Rosa (6-4) settled down after a shaky start, giving up three runs in seven innings. The hard-throwing lefty didnt have a strikeout for the first time this season, and his six-game winning streak came to an end. Evans homer came on a fastball, and then four pitches later Owings hit a cutter into the stands. "I didnt have my best stuff," De La Rosa said. "I just kept trying to work my way through and go as far as I can. I think I did a good job." The Rockies opened a 10-game homestand with their fifth straight loss. The best-hitting team in baseball just finished a dismal road swing in which it went 2-7 and averaged less than three runs a game. If this bad stretch wasnt bad enough, the Rockies could be losing one of their top players. Outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was removed in the sixth after irritating his left index finger. He just might be headed for the disabled list in order to give a finger thats nagged him most of the season a chance to heal. "Were at a point where weve got to make a decision on this and see whats best for him and whats best for our club," manager Walt Weiss said. Colorado struggled against Anderson, who mixed a fastball that barely crept into the 90s with a sharp curve and a splendid changeup. Anderson also benefited from an overturned call at the plate in the second that kept the game scoreless. Wilin Rosario was ruled safe by umpire Jerry Layne after sliding past the tag of catcher Miguel Montero. As Montero protested, Gibson trotted out of the dugout to challenge the play. The call was reversed when replays showed Montero tagged Rosario on the back before touching home. "That was awesome," Anderson said. "I saw that Miggy did tag him, but I wasnt sure if it was in time. Luckily, it was in time." NOTES: Arizona recalled INF Didi Gregorius from Triple-A Reno and placed INF Cliff Pennington (sprained left thumb) on the disabled list. Gibson said Pennington will undergo surgery. ... It was the third time this season the Diamondbacks have hit back-to-back homers. ... Owings also added an RBI double and finished a single shy of the cycle. ... The umpires used replay to check the count in the fourth.

With that said, important strides were made towards our long-term goals and we are excited about building on that progress.We also promised you that renewal pricing would be tied to the teams performance. With that commitment in mind, we are pleased to tell you that you can renew your season seats for the same prices as last season up until Dec. 15th.In one example, a season ticket would cost $760 prior to the deadline and $950 afterwards.A club spokesman said the total price for existing season tickets — before the deadline — ranges from $190 to $1,596 for a non-premium seat with some 29 price points.The prices for a new season ticket-buyer ranges from $342 to $1,273 before Feb. 6 and $380 to $1,402 after.Single ticket prices have yet to be determined.Despite spending millions on designated players Jermain Defoe, Michael Bradley and Brazils Gilberto, Toronto (11-15-8) failed to make the playoffs for the eighth straight year since entering the league in 2007.Two seasons ago, the club rolled back season ticket prices to the 2007 level because of poor performance on the field. The freeze continued last season — for those already holding sseason tickets — with the club delaying the date to renew so they could see the off-season signings.

The big-ticket additions did boost total 2014 attendance to 375,463 fans to BMO Field, up 30,928 over the previous franchise record of 344,535 set in 2011.Toronto averaged 22,086 a game this season, second only to the Seattle Sounders (43,734) and well above the league average of 19,147.The club had a record 17,000 season tickets in 2014 with a waiting list of 3,500. Toronto had 14,600 season ticket-holders in 2013.Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment is biting the bullet with the temporary ticket freeze given it is sinking $95 million in stadium renovations.With the first phase of renovations already underway, BMO Field will be a world-class home to match our vision of being a world-class club, Bezbatchenko said in his letter to ticket-holders. In 2016, a canopy will be installed over the stadium that will not only protect our fans from the elements, but also make BMO Field one of the loudest buildings in MLS.While the renovations to BMO Field are an important part of our commitment to you, we know that the improvements you care most about are on the pitch and that is where we are most focused. Toronto FC has a core roster now that is much improved and is only going to be stronger as a result of their experience together last season.Our goal is within reach and we are working tirelessly this off-season to build on our progress and deliver you a winning side.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter [url=http://www.chinajerseys.info/]China NFL Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.cheapjerseysfreeshipping.info/]Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.cheapnfljerseysauthentic.info/]NFL Jerseys Cheap[/url] [url=http://www.cheapnfljerseyssale.info/]Wholesale NFL Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.cheapbasketballjerseys.info/]Cheap Basketball Jerseys Online[/url] [url=http://www.cheaphockeyjerseys.info/]Stitched Hockey Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.cheapbaseballjerseys.info/]Wholesale Baseball Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.cheapfootballjerseys.info/]Football Jerseys Outlet[/url] [url=http://www.cheapcollegejerseys.info/]College Jerseys For Sale[/url] [url=http://www.mlbcheapjerseys.us/]Cheap MLB Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.soccercheapjerseys.us/]Wholesale Soccer Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.cheap1jerseys.com/]Wholesale Jerseys For Sale[/url] [url=http://www.cheapjjerseys.com/]Wholesale NFL Jerseys[/url] ' ' '
