ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves horrible season keeps getting worse.With eight wild pitches and four errors the last two nights, the Braves keep finding ways to top their embarrassment.Last night we got (blown out) and tonight we had a three-run lead in the eighth and we just didnt get it done, catcher A.J. Pierzynski said. There is no other way to put it.Trevor Story led off the ninth inning with a single, advanced to third on two wild pitches and scored the go-ahead run on a throwing error as the bumbling Braves lost 4-3 to the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night.Braves starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz began the eighth up 3-0, but let the first three batters reach and was chased by Nick Hundleys RBI single.Hunter Cervenkas wild pitch scored Mark Reynolds, and second baseman Gordon Beckhams throwing error scored Hundley for a 3-all tie.In the ninth, closer Jim Johnson (1-5) gave up a leadoff single to Story and threw wild pitches to two batters. Story scored when shortstop Erick Aybar bounced a throw on Reynolds fielders choice to Pierzynski, and ball bounced off the catchers glove.The Braves have been an easy target. They rank last in the majors in runs scored and have baseballs worst home and overall records. They let two runs score on a two-base throwing error and a wild pitch in Fridays 11-2 loss.Boone Logan (1-0) gave up one hit and one walk in the eighth.Carlos Estevez retired the side in order in the ninth to earn his fifth save in eight chances.Atlanta led 2-0 in the second on Pierzynskis first homer of the season. Foltynewiczs RBI single in the seventh put the Braves ahead 3-0.Foltynewicz allowed four hits, three runs, walked two and struck out five in seven-plus innings. He retired 12 straight before Ryan Raburn singled in the fifth and was commanding his fastball between 97 and 100 mph.But the Rockies, who began the game ranked second in NL runs per game, finally got going in the eighth.Its really unfortunate the way it unfolded there in the eighth, Foltynewicz said. I put my bullpen in a bad situation.Chad Bettis allowed six hits, three runs, three walks and struck out seven in 6 2/3 innings. The Rockies had won five of Bettis last six starts despite his 5.79 ERA during that span.Colorado began the game 0-43 when trailing after seven innings. Manager Walt Weiss liked how his team kept grinding.We knew early on it was going to be tough to score runs against (Foltynewicz), Weiss said. But we hung in there, made him work, got his pitch count up later, got in the bullpen and we strung together some real key at-bats.EVERY FIVE GAMESInterim Braves manager Brian Snitker said rookie RHP Tyrell Jenkins will join the rotation Tuesday at Cincinnati.Jenkins, acquired with Shelby Miller in the November 2014 trade that sent Jason Heyward and Jordan Walden to St. Louis, made an emergency start on July 6 for Julio Teheran. He gave up four hits and one run in 4 2/3 innings. In four relief appearances, hes 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Raburn was in the lineup for the first time in the teams last seven games because of a sore quadriceps. He went 2 for 4. Raburn hit a pinch-hit grand slam in the ninth Friday.Braves: RHP Arodys Vizcaino was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain. The struggling closer left Friday nights 11-2 loss to the after throwing three pitches in the ninth. It was his first appearance since he missed four straight games with an infection on his right elbow. ... LHP Eric OFlaherty was reinstated from the DL to take Vizcainos spot on the roster.UP NEXTRockies: RHP Jon Gray (5-4) will make his first career start against Atlanta. He is 2-4 with a 4.63 ERA in eight road starts.Braves: RHP Julio Teheran (3-8) is 4-1 with a 3.41 ERA in five career starts against Colorado.

Antonio Garcia Jersey. Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into his own net. Rob Nelson of ESPN Stats & Information revisits the worst bad beats from the weekends gambling action.?Closing lines are courtesy of Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, and pick percentages are via Wunderdog Sports.SaturdayOklahoma State Cowboys at Kansas JayhawksClosing line: Oklahoma State -23Kansas was again a big underdog in conference play, but it looked competitive in this one. The Jayhawks trailed by just four at halftime, and were easily covering the 23-point spread.Turnovers would ultimately cost those who bet Kansas. The home underdogs turned it over on three of their first four possessions in the second half, as Oklahoma State scored 17 points off those mistakes. Despite those giveaways, the Jayhawks were still down just 17 late in the fourth -- but Chris Carson put an exclamation point on the Cowboys win with a 16-yard touchdown run. That was a costly exclamation point for those who bet Kansas, as it gave the Cowboys a 24-point win.Final score:?Oklahoma State 44, Kansas 20 (Oklahoma State covers)Hawaii Rainbow Warriors at Air Force FalconsClosing over/under:?58.5It seems there is one of these bad beats every week -- a college football game that goes over the total after multiple overtimes. But the fact that its happened before doesnt make it easier for those who took the under in this one.Hawaii led 10-7 at halftime, with the total points nowhere near the closing over/under of 58.5. The scoring picked up a little in the second half, but it was still just 20-20 late in the fourth. Air Force proceeded to go on a 19-play drive that killed the final 8:18 of regulation, and had a 32-yard field goal to win it. But Luke Stregel missed it wide right, sending the game into overtime. If it was decided after just one overtime, those on the under would win. But a pair of touchdowns sent the game into double overtime, where Hawaiis Marcus Kemp caught a 25-yard touchdown on the first play to push the total over.Final score:?Hawaii 34, Air Force 27 in 2OT (Game goes over)SundayCleveland Browns at Cincinnati BengalsClosing first half line:?Bengals -7The Bengals closed as an 11.5-point favorite and were favored by a touchdown on the first-half line, but the most memorabble play from this game was one to forget if you took Browns +7 for the first half.ddddddddddddA.J. Greens 48-yard touchdown on the final play in the second quarter turned a four-point Bengals lead to a 21-10 advantage at halftime, and first-half wagers on the Browns from winners to losers. It was a tough loss for those who took the underdog, as Cleveland actually led 10-7 late in the second quarter. A quick Bengals scoring drive capped by a Brandon LaFell 44-yard touchdown and a Browns punt -- on their first drive after losing Cody Kessler to injury -- set up the potential for a Hail Mary. Then A.J. Green did the rest.Halftime score:?Bengals 21, Browns 10 (Bengals cover)Seattle Seahawks at Arizona CardinalsClosing line:?Cardinals -2.5In a game that ended after midnight on the East Coast, those who took the Cardinals as a small favorite are wishing they took the under instead.With less than five minutes left in regulation, Arizona led 3-0 and hadnt allowed Seattle to cross midfield all night. But the Seahawks blocked Ryan Quigleys punt and took over at the Cardinals 22-yard line. Seattle settled for a Steven Hauschka field goal to tie it, and that score would hold until overtime.The teams exchanged field goals on their first possessions in overtime and were now in sudden death. Arizona proceeded to drive down to the Seattle 1-yard line, and those who bet the Cardinals were going to be winners. According to ESPNs win probability model, the Cardinals had a 99.6 percent of winning with 4:13 left in overtime -- but Arizona couldnt punch it in and Chandler Catanzaro somehow missed a game-winning 24-yard field goal. Hauschka would later miss a chip shot to win it, costing those on the Seattle moneyline a winning bet as well (those bets pushed).Neither team scored a touchdown on Sunday night, but it was clear that Arizona had the edge. The Cardinals had 186 more yards of total offense, more than twice as many first downs and had the ball for nearly 18 minutes longer than Seattle.Final score:?Seahawks 6, Cardinals 6 in OT (Seahawks cover) Wholesale Jerseys  Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
