A look at what’s happening around the majors Sunday:TRY AGAINThe Red Sox send David Price to the mound for Game 2 of their AL Championship Series against Houston hoping for a bounce-back performance from the entire club. Price hasn’t pitched since allowing three runs in 1 2/3 innings in a Game 2 Division Series loss to the Yankees. That dropped him to 0-9 in 10 career postseason starts Harmon Killebrew Jersey , the longest such skid in major league playoff history.Boston is coming off a lousy night all around in a 7-2 loss to Houston. Chris Sale struggled, Alex Cora was ejected, the defense had a few misplays and the offense had just three hits against Justin Verlander and a trio of relievers.Gerrit Cole is up for the Astros. The right-hander struck out 12 over seven innings in a 3-1 win Game 2 win against Cleveland in the Division Series.LOOK OUT!Umpire Joe West slides from second base to first for ALCS Game 2 after getting closer to the action than he’d like in the opener. Boston catcher Christian Vazquez drilled West in the chest with a throw when Jake Marisnick stole second in the eighth. The 65-year-old crew chief appeared to be fine.REST UPThe Brewers and Dodgers get a day to travel to Los Angeles before playing Game 3 Monday. It’s a chance for Milwaukee’s vaunted bullpen to recover and look for answers after an uncharacteristically lousy first couple games. Aside from lights-out lefty Josh Hader, Brewers relievers have allowed eight runs in 7 1/3 innings. That crew had the fifth-best bullpen ERA in the majors during the regular season at 3.47, including a big league-best 1.98 in September. ATLANTA (AP) — DJ LeMahieu and the Colorado Rockies are quite comfortable on the road. Even against baseball’s best teams.LeMahieu homered, German Marquez pitched seven solid innings and the Rockies closed out their first four-game sweep in Atlanta with a 4-2 victory over the Braves on Sunday.Colorado improved to 30-16 since June 26, and each of those 46 games came against teams with winning records at the time. The Rockies are 8-2 in their last 10 games against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston and Atlanta, facing the Astros and Braves on the road.“Yeah, it’s tough teams but we’re definitely not nervous or scared to play anyone with our team,” LeMahieu said. “We all know we have a really good team here. It makes it easy to show up at the park.”LeMahieu put Colorado in front with his third-inning drive to left field . He has hit nine of his 11 homers on the road Paul Molitor Jersey , including a tiebreaking solo shot in the 10th inning of Saturday night’s 5-3 win.“No explanation,” LeMahieu said when asked about his road success. “Just kind of random, I guess.”Rockies manager Bud Black said his team, battling Arizona for the NL West lead, is playing “good, all-around clean baseball,” but still can hit better.Atlanta’s four straight losses, tied for its longest streak of the season, followed a five-game winning streak.“In this business, every time you think you have something figured out, you get kicked right in the teeth http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-tony-oliva-jersey ,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said.Marquez (11-9) won his fourth straight road decision. He allowed two runs and five hits, struck out five and walked one.“Hopefully we can keep this rolling all the way to the World Series,” Marquez said through a translator.Marquez allowed a run in the first when Freddie Freeman doubled and scored on Johan Camargo’s single. He then threw four straight scoreless innings before Camargo’s single in the sixth drove in Freeman again.Trevor Story led off the second with a tying homer off Atlanta’s Anibal Sanchez (6-4) into the Colorado bullpen behind the left-field wall.Following LeMahieu’s homer in the third, David Dahl doubled and scored on Nolan Arenado’s single.Sanchez struck out eight in 6 2/3 innings. He was charged with three runs and five hits.Wade Davis gave up a one-out single to Inciarte but had three strikeouts in the ninth for his NL-leading 35th save.Colorado’s only previous sweep in Atlanta was a three-game series from Sept. 12-14, 1997.TRAINER’S ROOMRockies: LHP Mike Dunn (left shoulder inflammation) will begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday with Triple-A Albuquerque. He has been out since July 7. “It’s going to be a lengthy rehab assignment,” Black said, adding Dunn will need “multiple outings.”Braves: LHP Sam Freeman (left shoulder inflammation) was activated off the 10-day disabled list. LHP Kolby Allard was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett.STREAKS ENDBraves rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. was 0 for 4, ending his 11-game hitting streak. His team-record streak of reaching safely in nine consecutive plate appearances leading off a game also ended with his fly ball to center in the first.WEST WOESThe Braves fell to 9-18 against the NL West this season. They are 40-19 against NL East teams.ROAD KINGSThe Rockies improved to 37-29 away from Coors Field. They have won their last four series in Atlanta; the Braves won two of three in Colorado from April 6-8.UP NEXTRockies: LHP Tyler Anderson (6-5, 4.39 ERA) tries to bounce from a rough outing at Houston when he gets the ball in the opener of a three-game series against visiting San Diego on Tuesday night. The Rockies are 16-5 at home since July 2.Braves: RHP Kevin Gausman (7-9, 4.22 ERA) starts when Atlanta opens a seven-game road trip at Pittsburgh on Monday night.
