    DENVER — German Marquez http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-dale-murphy-jersey , a 23-year-old right-hander who has been dominant in recent starts, will take the mound Tuesday for the Colorado Rockies against the San Francisco Giants.After coming back to win 9-8 on Monday, the Rockies will be trying to clinch the three-game series behind Marquez, who will face the Giants for the first time this year.Dereck Rodriguez, 26, who made his major league debut May 29 at Coors Field in a relief appearance, will make his first start there and first start against the Rockies.Article continues below ...Marquez is 11-9, 4.11, and Rodriguez is 6-2, 2.47. In three starts against the Giants, Marquez is 0-2, 8.79,Marquez is coming off a no-decision Thursday at San Diego that included a career-high 13 strikeouts in eight innings, while allowing two hits, two runs and one walk before the Rockies lost 3-2 in 13 innings.He has pitched at least seven innings in six of his past seven starts. During that stretch Freddie Freeman Jersey , Marquez is 3-1, 2.17 with 10 walks and 61 strikeouts in 49 2/3 innings. He allowed 31 hits, including just three home runs, while holding opposing hitters to a .177 average and a .514 OPS.“I think pitch-to-pitch adjustments, that’s the biggest thing,” said Rockies catcher Tony Wolters, who has been behind the plate recently with Marquez. “He’ll like not feel good on one of them and he’ll know exactly what it is. He’s not going to have four, five, six pitches in a row where it’s, ‘What the heck is going on?’ He needs to stay with his routine, keep knowing his major keys — stay tall, his direction and tempo — knowing how to get out of the bad feelings and just (continue) executing.”Marquez now throws a two-seam fastball with movement in addition to a four-seam fastball that touches 98 mph. He has improved his slider, which recently has been the pitch he has thrown best for strikes and has a dependable changeup in addition to a curveball that he has thrown effectively since his days in the minors.“He feels confident with throwing all of his pitches in different counts,” Wolters said. “So, he can really mess with a lineup. The second go-around http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-bobby-cox-jersey , the third go-around, he brings his changeup more. We’ll mix and match pitches with our game plans. We can mess with people, because he has all four pitches.”The Giants are 9-5 in starts by Rodriguez, whose father is Hall of Fame catcher Ivan ‘Pudge’ Rodriguez. He has allowed 69 hits and just five home runs in 91 innings. In his last start Wednesday at Arizona, Rodriguez gave up three runs on five hits and four walks in five innings with three strikeouts and took the loss as the Giants fell 3-1. That start snapped a streak of nine straight starts in which Rodriguez allowed two or fewer runs.He leads major league rookie pitchers with a 2.47 ERA and is tied for fourth among NL rookies with six wins and ranks second with an opponent’s batting average of .207.“It’s a little different mindset,” Rodriguez said, harkening back to late May, when he joined the Giants here. “You’ve been around for three months already, so you kind of have an idea of what to expect.”Rodriguez has been a godsend for the Giants, who have lost pitchers Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija to injuries and were without ace Madison Bumragner until June.Rodriguez began his career in the Minnesota organization and left the Twins to sign with the Giants as a minor league free agent last winter; hence what he has done for the Giants comes as a surprise, at least to those outside the organization.“I guess so,” Rodriguez said. “I wasn’t on nobody’s radar. I was stuck in Double-A with the Twins. But that’s the good thing about this game is that every year’s different. Every day’s different.“My mentality going into the offseason was just to weigh my options and see what happens, whatever team decides to pick me up and see what opportunity they want to give me. It worked out really well here.” WASHINGTON (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shildt changed his lineup after arriving at Nationals Park, dropping catcher Yadier Molina from second to sixth.Molina responded with a grand slam, Marcell Ozuna homered twice and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Washington Nationals 11-8 on Tuesday night.Molina’s sixth career grand slam provided a cushion for St. Louis http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-bob-uecker-jersey , making it 11-5 with two outs in the ninth.“It did work out. We were happy with it,” Shildt said. “Just thinking about different ways as the lineup has looked the last couple of days, maybe lengthening it out, spreading some things out a little bit.”The Cardinals, who occupy the second NL wild card spot, hit five homers overall as they stopped a three-game skid.Right fielder Yairo Munoz robbed Ryan Zimmerman of a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth, reaching over the fence and pulling it back into the field of play for a two-run double.Tyson Ross (8-9) pitched 1 1/3 innings for the win and Jordan Hicks got the final out for his sixth save in 11 chances.Ozuna and Paul DeJong homered leading off the sixth inning to break a 4-4 tie, and one out later, Patrick Wisdom went deep to make it 7-4.Making his second major league appearance, reliever Austen Williams (0-1) gave up all three of those homers. He allowed none in 68 innings this season in Double-A and Triple-A.“There’s just things that I might be able to do in the minor leagues that I can’t here,” Williams said. “I need to trust my breaking ball more and just try and be better with two strikes if I want to throw a fastball.”The 4-hour, 10-minute game included 16 walks and 20 strikeouts. St. Louis pitchers walked 11.“The walks are concerning. That’s 11, 10 yesterday and eight the day before,” Shildt said. “It’s actually kind of impressive. … We’ve had a real opportunity to win all the last three games.”Wilmer Difo homered and Bryce Harper had a double and three walks in five plate appearances for the Nationals, who fell one game below .500 after relievers Williams and Solis combined to give up seven runs.“They are going to get an opportunity to pitch Tyler Flowers Jersey , so they got to realize if they want to pitch here they got to get outs,” manager Dave Martinez said. “I can’t keep using the same guys every single day.”Ozuna led off the second with his 17th homer, and Matt Carpenter capped the inning with a two-run single that made it 4-0.Washington rallied in the fifth when Zimmerman led off with a grounder to second that second baseman Munoz misplayed for an error. Harper later drove in two with his bases-loaded double, and Trea Turner and Juan Soto drew bases-loaded walks.Erick Fedde allowed four runs in five innings. John Gant of St. Louis allowed three unearned runs in 4 1/3 innings.WALK OUTSt. Louis picked up a first-inning out when Harper walked on a 3-2 pitch with Turner running from first. Despite the walk, catcher Molina threw to Munoz. The Cardinals appealed the play, and upon review Turner was called out. Though entitled to second base via Harper’s walk, Turner slid past the bag and was tagged out.ROSTER MOVESThe Nationals recalled a top prospect, OF Victor Robles, from Triple-A Syracuse along with INF Adrian Sanchez and RHP Austin Voth and selected the contract of RHP Kyle McGowin from Syracuse. Robles flied out as a pinch-hitter in the sixth. Washington reinstated Fedde and RHP Joe Ross from the 60-day disabled list and activated LHP Tommy Milone from the 10-day DL. Milone was then assigned outright to Syracuse.TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: Manager Mike Shildt said 2B Kolten Wong (left hamstring strain) will be activated Wednesday.Nationals: LHP Sean Doolittle (left toe inflammation) will throw another simulated game Wednesday. “His (velocity) was a little down in the last one so we just want to make sure he’s not tinkering with his mechanics or anything like that,” Martinez said. … RHP Jefry Rodriguez will move to the bullpen to limit his innings and Ross will start Friday against the Cubs.UP NEXTCardinals: RHP Miles Mikolas (13-4, 2.96 ERA), who was originally listed as Tuesday’s starter, will instead go in Wednesday’s finale. He gave up four runs in seven innings to Washington on Aug. 13.Nationals: RHP Tanner Roark (8-14, 2.96 ERA) makes the second home start of his career against the Cardinals.
