string of chances -- many coming in the latter stages after Marcelo Brozovic was sent off in the 77th for two

DENVER -- After two disastrous games and a disappointing series against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Colorado Rockies will conclude their homestand with four games against the Atlanta Braves starting on Thursday. Cheap Tyler Eifert Jersey .The Rockies fell 11-3 Wednesday afternoon, hours after a rain-delayed 10-1 loss Tuesday night and were outscored 25-11 by the Rays in the series. The Rockies struck out 15 times Wednesday, following 12 strikeouts Tuesday night. It is the first time in franchise history that the Rockies struck out 12 or more times in consecutive games at home.Chad Bettis will start Thursday night for the Rockies. He is 7-6 with a 5.55 ERA in 19 starts, 11 of which the Rockies won, and will face the Braves for the second straight start. On Saturday at Atlanta, Bettis gave up six hits and three runs in 6 2/3 innings with three walks and three strikeouts but wasnt involved in the decision as the Rockies won 4-3.The Rockies are 6-1 in Bettis past seven starts, and he is 3-1 with a 5.49 ERA (39 1/3 innings, 24 earned runs) in that span.Im in a good spot right now mentally and physically, Bettis said. And I think that Im learning things and trying to still understand how to get a little bit better each time, which is where I want to be. But I think in the big sense of things, personally, I feel I need to be much better toward the later part of my starts. In the Atlanta game, I feel like I got hurt there in my last, say, 10-15 pitches.Its not that Im not focused or anything, but (I) just need to understand whats going on and be aware of it and fix it before it happens.At Atlanta on Saturday, Bettis allowed two runs in the second but then retired 12 of the next 14 batters he faced through the sixth. He issued a leadoff walk followed by a bunt single in the seventh but got Erick Aybar to ground into a double play. But Bettis then gave up a run-scoring single to pitcher Mike Foltynewicz and walked Jace Peterson before being lifted from the game.The Rockies and Braves played a three-game series last weekend in Atlanta to start the second half of the season. The Rockies won the first two games but were unable to sweep the series when the Braves scored a run in the ninth Sunday to win 1-0.Foltynewicz will again oppose Bettis and is coming off a terrific outing during which he threw 73 of 107 pitches for strikes. He allowed four hits and three runs with two walks and five strikeouts before being taken out after facing three batters in the eighth. Foltynewicz is 3-3 with a 3.70 ERA in 10 starts this season, four of which the Braves have won.The Braves on Wednesday lost the rubber game of their series at Cincinnati 6-3 and are 2-4 since the All-Star break. Their road record is 19-26, not good but far better than their 14-36 mark at home. Moreover, the Braves are 9-7 in their past 16 road games.Colorado is the second stop for the Braves on a nine-game road trip that will conclude with two games at Minnesota.Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, who had a cancerous mole removed from his back during the All-Star break, went 0-for-11 with six strikeouts in the series against the Rockies last weekend.Freeman finally ended his long-ball drought at Great American Ballpark when he homered in the first inning against Anthony DeSclafini. It was the 17th homer of the season for Freeman, who went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts.This place is a graveyard, you know what I mean, Freeman joked about one of the better home run parks in the big leagues. In my career, Ive never been swinging well when I come into this park. I was able to get one over today.At the hitters paradise that is Coors Field, Freeman has made 66 plate appearances and his hitting .271 (14-for-59) with five homers, 14 RBI and a .627 OPS.

Young formally announced his retirement Friday after returning to Rangers Ballpark, his baseball home for all but the last of his 13 major league seasons. . Self was acquired from the Buffalo Bandits in a trade for Alex Hill midway through last season, and made his debut in Rochester on March 16, 2013. MANCHESTER, England -- Paul Pogba cast aside criticism of his recent performances by delivering a reminder of his talent on Thursday, scoring twice in Manchester Uniteds 4-1 win over Fenerbahce in the Europa League.The France midfielder has struggled to justify his world-record price tag of $116 million since returning to Old Trafford from Juventus in August, with Jose Mourinho unable to find the best position for Pogba in Uniteds midfield.More displays like this and the critics will disappear.Pogba marked a dominant all-round performance by converting a penalty to put United ahead before producing the highlight of the game, a 25-meter curler into the top corner in first-half injury time to make it 3-0.Two days ago, he was the worst player of the Premier League and 48 hours later he is phenomenal, Mourinho said sarcastically. He needs time. To be in Italy for four or five years and come back to the Premier League, I wasnt expecting him to click his fingers and get back his intensity.Anthony Martial also scored from the spot, three minutes after Pogbas penalty, and Jesse Lingard made it four goals in an 18-minute span with a low drive from outside the area in the 48th.It was a timely result for United, which was accused of being negative and too defensive in a 0-0 draw at Liverpool in the Premier League on Monday. This matched its biggest win of the season.There was room for sentiment at Old Trafford, with the home fans applauding the consolation goal scored by former United striker Robin van Persie in the 83rd. The Dutch striker was at United from 2012-15, helping the team win its 20th and most recent title in 2013, so no wonder his name was sung throughout the stadium after his close-range strike.Wayne Rooney failed to get in on the scoring act in his first start in five games after being dropped as he struggles for form, but he performed well and linked play with midfield runners. He gave up penalty-taking duties, an unselfish act perhaps to give Pogba the chance of a goal to boost his confidence.United moved onto six points, the same as Feyenoord after three games in Group A.Fenerbahce may partly blame the performance on its chaotic buildup to the match.

The airplane carrying the Turkish team to England on Wednesday had to make an emergency landing in Hungary after a bird strike cracked the windshield.The journey lasted around 12 hours, causing Fenerbahce to miss training at Old Trafford.Heres a look at other matches in the third round of group games in Europes second-tier club competition:SHAKHTAR DONETSK 5, GENT 0Shakhtar had five different scorers -- Viktor Kovalenko, Facundo Ferreyra, Bernard, Taison, and Maksym Malyshev -- in a win that kept the team on maximum points after three games in Group H.Kovalenko got the Ukrainian team rolling with a 40-meter strike in Lviv as Shakhtar went five points clear in the group.Schalke, a 1-0 winner at Krasnodar, and Zenit St. Petersburg, which rallied to beat Dundalk 2-1, are the other teams to have a maximum nine points so far.ROMA 3, AUSTRIA VIENNA 3An entertaining draw in the Italian capital was preceded by brief clashes between Vienna fans and police outside of a hotel in Rome where the Austrian supporters were staying.Also, a bus full of Vienna supporters was stopped by police earlier in the day and high-grade fireworks and flares were confiscated, plus a banner that read UEFA Mafia, according to the ANSA news agency.On the field, Dominik Prokop and Olarenwaju Kayode scored in the final eight minutes as the Austrian side battled back for a draw that leaves the teams tied on five points atop Group E.INTER MILAN 1, SOUTHAMPTON 0Inter finally has points in Group K, beating Southampton with a 67th-minute goal from Antonio Candreva from the teams only shot on target at San Siro.Inter stayed in last place in the group but at least has revived its chance of qualifying for the last 32. It will come as a relief for coach Frank De Boer, with the team languishing in midtable in Serie ASouthampton, in good form in the Premier League, wasted a string of chances -- many coming in the latter stages after Marcelo Brozovic was sent off in the 77th for two bookings.
