DENVER -- German Marquez will try to rebound from a poor outing when he makes his third career outing Sunday for the Colorado Rockies against the Milwaukee Brewers in the final game of the regular season. Jordan Zimmermann Jersey .The Brewers are planning a bullpen game with Tyler Cravy, who threw 20 pitches in two perfect innings Friday night, making the start. Cravy is 0-1 with a 2.39 ERA in 19 games, including one start on May 6 at Cincinnati.Cravy took the turn of Wily Peralta, who was on the paternity list, and gave up five runs in four innings and took a 5-1 loss.Its basically going to be a bullpen day, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said of the rubber game of the series with the Rockies. Were looking for a couple innings (from Cravy), and then were going to use a bunch of relievers.Starters Matt Garza and Jimmy Nelson are rested, but Counsell said the plan going into the Brewers road trip that began Monday at Texas was to cover the innings of the final game with relievers.We had to make sure we got through the first two games (at Coors Field) basically with enough pitching, and we did, Counsell said after the Brewers beat the Rockies 4-3 in 10 innings on Saturday night.Marquez, 21, began his career in the majors with three relief appearances last month before making his first start against St. Louis on Sept. 21. He held the Cardinals to four hits and one run in five innings and became the second-youngest pitcher in franchise history to win his first start as the Rockies beat the Cardinals 11-1.On Tuesday at San Francisco, Marquez gave up six hits but only two runs in four innings. However, he then allowed six straight hits to start the fifth before being lifted from the game. He ended up yielding six runs and 12 hits in four innings.Marquez worked on finishing his pitches in what was described as a very sharp bullpen session Thursday. He is 1-1 with a 6.14 ERA overall but has impressed the Rockies with his easy velocity -- a fastball that sits at 95-96 mph -- a polished curveball and a developing slider as well as his composure and poise on the mound.The Rockies acquired Marquez in the January deal with Tampa Bay that also brought reliever Jake McGee to Colorado for outfielder Corey Dickerson and minor league third baseman Kevin Padlo.Marquez spent most of this season at Double-A Hartford, where he was named the Eastern League pitcher of the year. He pitched briefly at Triple-A Albuquerque before the Rockies recalled him Sept. 6, two days before his major league debut.Marquez could contend for a spot in the Rockies Opening Day rotation next season. Asked whether his outing against the Giants could be a teaching tool, an opportunity for Marquez to rebound from adversity, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, All of this is an opportunity to get better for young players. Thats what some of Septembers about. Guys get opportunities to make an impression -- hes already made an impression with his composure, the way he operates out there. These are all opportunities for growth. Alan Trammell Jersey .

Jolyon Palmer is surprised Kevin Magnussen opted to join Haas rather than sign a one-year extension at Renault, calling the decision a mistake.Palmer has been confirmed at Renault for another year after Magnussen turned Renault down to join Haas. Though Magnussens decision meant Renault then turned to Palmer, who will partner Nico Hulkenberg in 2017, the Englishman thinks the Danish driver has made a mistake leaving a manufacturer team.When asked if it perturbed him to know Renault offered a deal to Magnussen first, Palmer replied: Im surprised to hear that, to be honest. I think if Renault turned to Kevin then hes made a mistake to turn it down because I think theyll be ahead of Haas next year.Its a manufacturer team going places. If you get the choice to go to Red Bull for one year its better than going to Toro Rosso for two years. Im not sure thats definitely the case, but anyway I dont care because Im in the seat for next year and nothing changes for me. So its fine.Magnussen has explained that he would have been more willing to stay at Renault if it had been prepared to offer him more than a one-year deal. He also took excepption to how many people Renault had talked to -- joking that even the pope had been a contender for a seat at one point -- without keeping himself of Palmer informed of the situation. Cheap Braves Jerseys. When asked if he had also been offered a one-year deal, Palmer said: Yeah but I have an option for the future. I need to do a good job next year, its understandable for Renault that next year they want to still see how I can do against Nico.But I have an option for the future, I believe in myself and in my opinion the car is going to strong next year - stronger - and then its up to me to do a good job and then I have an option with Renault for the future. So I believe in myself, do a good job and then Ill be part of the future.When told about Palmers comments at his own media session shortly afterwards, Magnussen referenced the deal he turned down and said pointedly: I think he should be happy that I left, honestly. He went on to stress his belief Haas can challenge Renault under the new regulations in 2017.?

ALLEN PARK, Mich. Nick Markakis Jersey . -- Over and over, the officials announced that Detroits Corey Robinson was reporting as an eligible receiver -- a sign of just how banged up the Lions are in certain areas.Robinson is an offensive tackle and wears No. 70, but with their tight end corps thin because of injuries, the Lions used him there during their win over Philadelphia last weekend.Hes been asking for a few routes here and there, coach Jim Caldwell joked.With Robinson filling his unusual role and Golden Tate lining up in the backfield some, the Lions showed some creativity in their 24-23 win Sunday. Detroit is dealing with significant injuries at tight end, running back, linebacker and on the defensive line, but the victory over the Eagles helped the Lions regain their footing a bit after three straight losses.We were starting a new quarter of the season, Tate said. We like to break it up into four quarters, and it was the second quarter of the season. Obviously, the first quarter didnt go so well, so we just wanted to start off 1-0.Detroit (2-3) was without tight end Eric Ebron (ankle, knee), defensive end Ziggy Ansah (ankle) and linebacker DeAndre Levy (knee, quadriceps) on Sunday. Running back Ameer Abdullah (foot) has also been out.Considering all that, the Lions looked surprisingly crisp in the first half, when they scored on all three of their possessions and led 21-10 after two quarters.The 6-foot-7, 317-pound Robinson made his first career start and played 19 snaps. The Lions werent about to throw the ball to him, but Robinson is certainly capable of providing extra blocking as a tight end, and Caldwell was pleased with the way he moved around.We typically dont put those guys in motion if we can help it, but I thought he did pretty well, Caldwell said Monday. He did show an aptitude to handle a little bit of a skill position in that regard, so he did pretty well. Didnt have to worry about him jumping offsides or anything of that nature.Tate hasnt had a great season so far at wide receiver, and the Lions moved him around as well Sunday. In addition to his three catches for 39 yards, he also had three carries for 6 yards.The Lions were coming off a particularly unimpressive performance in a loss at Chicago , so beating the previously undefeated Eagles was an important step. Detroit lost seven of its first eight games last season, and there has been pressure to avoid repeating that kind of start this year.The Lions host Los Angeles next weekend, the second of three consecutive home games. Theyll face Washington the following weekend, so the hope in Detroit is that the victory over the Eagles can be the start of an extended stretch of better football.Every win is important. I think its more so what you do after that that counts, Caldwell said. The work weve got to put in and all those kinds of things will make a tremendous difference in that regard, so weve got to go back to work and straighten out the problems we had. But its better to build on that platform than a loss, obviously.Game notes The Lions announced that beer ($3.50) and hot dogs ($2.50) will be sold at 1991 prices for Sundays game.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers observed a moment of silence before their game Friday night to honor five police officers killed in a sniper attack in downtown Dallas, which is about 20 miles from their ballpark.About 150 Air Force recruits stood along the base lines after a previously scheduled induction ceremony that included a flyover by the U.S. Air Force after the national anthem. Players and coaches from the Rangers and Minnesota Twins stood outside their respective dugouts.The Rangers asked everyone in attendance to pause and remember those who have lost their lives in tragic events across our nation in the last week, including those of our community who last night were injured or tragically lost their lives in the line of duty.Seven other officers and two civilians were wounded in the Dallas attack, which took place during a protest over this weeks killings by police of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.During the moment of silence, with a color guard staged behind the pitchers mound, all the video boards and ribbon signs in Globe Life Park went dark.Before their home game Friday night, the?Astros?and Houston police also observed a moment of silence for the fallen Dallas officers.Joey Gallo, one of the top prospects with the Rangers, recalled in an Instagram postt earlier in the day when he and teammate Nomar Mazara were stopped by a police officer walking down the street in downtown Dallas earlier this year. Phil Niekro Jersey. .The two young players werent in trouble. The officer, Patrick Zamarripa, recognized them and wanted to take a picture with the two.Zamarripa was one of the five police officers killed in Dallas.Gallo, now playing at Triple-A Round Rock, posted the picture and relayed the story of the meeting while asking for prayers for Zamarripa and all the officers and families affected by the tragedy.Rangers manager Jeff Banister said the last thing on his mind throughout the day was the game. He was still thinking about what happened in downtown Dallas on Thursday night when the Rangers were finishing up the first game of the weekend series.I went to bed last night watching it. Woke up this morning watching it, Banister said. No disrespect. Were going to go out and play a baseball game because thats what were here to do. Our guys are going to play [hard]. But I guarantee you this, this game was the last thing I was thinking about when I woke up this morning.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Matt Garza wants to make the Texas Rangers proud that they long coveted having him in their rotation. Jorge De La Rosa Jersey . The big right-hander made quite an impression when he finally pitched in a Texas uniform. "Same thing Ive always saw when he pitched against us," manager Ron Washington said. "The guy can execute pitches. He never gets rattled." Garza pitched into the eighth inning of his Rangers debut, two days after getting traded from the Chicago Cubs. The only run he allowed was unearned after his throwing error in a 3-1 victory over the New York Yankees on Wednesday night. "Im excited. I couldnt be more happy being in a place where Im at, a place where Im wanted, been wanted. Its awesome," Garza said. "I felt good. I just wanted to throw strikes." Garza (1-0) was 6-1 in his 11 starts this season for the Cubs. He was 5-0 with a 1.24 ERA his last six starts for Chicago, winning the last five. After giving up consecutive singles to start his first game in a Rangers jersey, Garza retired 15 of the next 16 batters before his throwing error on Brett Gardners comebacker leading off the sixth. He finished with five strikeouts and no walks, throwing 66 of 95 pitches for strikes. "Pounded the zone with vengeance," Washington said. "He was as advertised," said David Murphy, who homered for Texas. "Weve seen him do it before. It was impressive to see him attack the zone like that." A.J. Pierzynski drove in two runs for Texas, including a tiebreaking solo homer in the bottom of the sixth off Andy Pettitte (7-8). The Rangers were interested in Garza when Tampa Bay traded him to Chicago after the 2010 season. They also inquired about him last summer before he missed the last two months with a stress reaction in his right elbow. He missed the first seven weeks this season because of a strained left lat muscle. "Hes got good stuff. He has a very good fastball and slider. We hit some balls hard, but right at them," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "He gave up hits to the first two batters and got out of the inning, and he kind of got on a roll after that." Gardners comebacker leading off the sixth rolled away from Garza even though the pitcher was able to get a glove on it. He scrambled to grab the ball, but threw awkwardly off his knee well wide of first base. The speedy Gardner was credited with an infield single and got to third on the errant throw. Garza then snagged Ichiro Suzukis comebacker for an out before Robinson Cano lined a single over second baseman Ian Kinslers head to tie the game at 1. Walking off the mound after the inning, Garza was clearly frustrated at himself. He already felt better soon after that, pumping his arms in the air and slapping his hands together when Pierzynski hit his 10th homer. "Its just I kept turning. I didnt stop myself from sliding, thats why I didnt let the ball go too well. ... Caught me off guard, its one of those things " Garza said. "But I made sure I got the next guy out and so close to not letting them score. Thats what I was a little (mad) about." Neal Cotts retired all four batters he faced before Joe Nathan got the final out for his 32nd save in 34 chances. The All-Star closer rebounded from the previous night when he gave up two runs in the ninth of a 5-4 loss to the Yankees. Pettitte allowed eight hits and two runs while pitching into the seventh. The 41-year-old left-hander struck out two and walked one. "Pierzynski killed him. He usually handles lefties well. He left a slider down but kind of in the middle of the plate, and he hit it out," Girardi said. "We just need to get (Pettitte) some runs."The Rangers quickly led 1-0 after Ian Kinsler had a leadoff single, went to second on a sacrifice bunt by Elvis Andrus and scored on a single by Pierzynski. It was the second time in three games this series they scored a run in the first inning, after 10 consecutive games without a run in the initial frame. NOTES: Even with the victory for the Rangers, it was the 27th day in a row they failed to gain ground in the AL West since Oakland won 4-3 at Houston earlier Wednesday. The Rangers have gone from a half-game lead to three games back in that span. ... Rangers opening day starter Matt Harrison threw live BP, facing hitters for the first time since April. The lefty has been on the DL and had two back surgeries since his last start April 6. Harrison says he felt good and is expected to throw BP again Saturday in Cleveland. ...

BERKELEY, Calif. Deion Sanders Jersey . -- One year after Jared Goff left to become the first overall pick in the NFL draft, California coach Sonny Dykes will once again be looking for a quarterback replacement.Davis Webb, who took over for Goff, is set to play his final home game when the Golden Bears host UCLA at Memorial Stadium on Saturday. Webb holds numerous single-season passing records and has accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl in his quest to join Goff in the NFL.What California will do for a quarterback once Webb is gone is a mystery. The Bears have a pair of underclassmen but neither played this season, as Dykes opted to stick with his starter the entire season.Dykes and his staff might have to find a replacement for wide receiver Chad Hansen, too. Hansen is also mulling his potential NFL options and has not yet to decide whether to declare for the draft or return for his senior season.Chads got a high ceiling and I dont think hes anywhere close to reaching it yet, Dykes said. I think it makes sense for him to come back but those are conversations well have after the seasons over. I still think hes a developing guy. He has an opportunity to become one of the elite guys in college football.Hansen is the Pac-12s leading receiver with 82 catches, 1,093 yards and 11 touchdowns despite missing two games with an ankle injury.While Webb has already embraced Saturday being his final college game, the Bears quarterback isnt sure what the plans are for his favorite target.I havent had that conversation with Chad, Webb said. Weve had just about every conversation under the sun but that one. Thats a credit to him, the hard work he put in this summer, to allow him to even have that possibility of leaving early.UCLA senior quarterback Mike Fafaul, who is also ending his collegiate career after this season, has had an uneven year while filling in for injured Josh Rosen. Fafaul, a redshirt senior, set a school single-game record for completions and attempts against Utah on Oct. 22 and has 11 touchdowns with 10 interceptions.Here are a few other things to look for when California hosts UCLA on Saturday in a matchup of two teams that are 4-7 overall and 2-6 in the Pac-12 :GROUND STRUGGLEWith an average of 84.3 yards on the ground the Bruins rank last in the Pac-12 for rushing. That might be a bad omen except that the Bears are last in the conference in rushing defense, allowing a whopping 290.1 yards per game.SLIM BOWL HOPESNeither California nor UCLA will reach the six-win mark this season, meaning their only hopes for a bowl game will be if there are not enough eligible teams to fill out of the bowl schedule. The NCAA hands out those invitations based on Academic Progress Rate. In 2015, three five-win teams were invited to play in postseason bowl games and all three won.STREAKSUCLA has won the last three games between the two teams but has won only once in Berkeley since 1998. Conversely, California has lost its last two games at Memorial Stadium but has posted home wins against two ranked teams (Texas and Utah) earlier this season.CAREFUL OFFENSEThe Bears have had 933 plays on offense this season yet have turned the ball over only 15 times, including just three fumbles. The school record for fewest turnovers in one season is 17, which California did twice. Bob Uecker Jersey .

(STATS) -- Sam Houston States six sacks allowed this season are tied for the sixth-lowest total among FCS teams.On Thursday, the NCAA Division I FCS selection committee delivered a sack against the unbeaten Bearkats thats more important than any on the field.The committee lowered the No. 1 team in the STATS FCS Top 25 three spots to No. 5 in their second of three sets of Top 10 rankings preceding its announcement of the 24-team pairings on Nov. 20.Jacksonville State (8-1) had the top spot for the second straight week, followed by Eastern Washington (8-1), five-time defending FCS champion North Dakota State (8-1) and James Madison (8-1), which moved up one spot each. After Sam Houston, The Citadel (9-0) was sixth, followed by Chattanooga (8-1), Richmond (7-2), Central Arkansas (8-1) and North Dakota (8-2).Sam Houston (9-0) hasnt trailed in a game this season, but coach K.C. Keelers squad has fallen behind in the selection committee rankings. The top two seeded teams in the playoffs are guaranteed home games through the semifinals, whose winners will advance to the FCS championship game Jan. 7 in Frisco, Texas.Second in the committee rankings last week, the Bearkats fall to No. 5 ironically comes after one of their bigger wins of the season, 56-43 over rival McNeese (5-55). Julio Teheran Jersey. While Sam Houstons 89th ranking in the NCAAs toughest schedule report would be cause for a drop with the committee, it doesnt compute with Jacksonville States 101st-ranked schedule based on cumulative opposition (the winning percentage of past and future opponents). The Gamecocks, last years FCS runners-up, are coming off a less impressive win than Sam Houston -- 17-10 over Southeast Missouri (3-6).Should the teams in front of Sam Houston continue to win this weekend, the Bearkats may not gain with the committee because they play a 1-8 Northwestern State squad. However, their final regular-season game on Nov. 19 could leave a lasting impression as they will host Central Arkansas in a likely pseudo-Southland Conference championship game. Both teams are 7-0 in conference play.The playoffs consist of 10 conference champions which receive automatic bids and 14 at-large selections. Eight teams will be seeded and receive first-round byes, and 16 open play in the first round on Nov. 26.The selection committee will release one more set of rankings on Tuesday during the Championship Drive: Power Hour, beginning at 10 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
