Rox reliever Oberg out with blood clots in arm, Davis hurt

  Rox reliever Oberg out with blood clots in arm, Davis hurt DENVER — The Colorado Rockies may be without reliever Scott Oberg for the rest of the season after he developed blood clots in his right arm for a third time in his career. Manager Bud Black said Oberg felt some discomfort in his throwing hand Saturday during a throwing session. He was evaluated by vascular doctors, who discovered the clots. Oberg was already on the 10-day injured list with a strained back. “For lack of a better word, it’s a bummer,” Black said. “It will be a while, if at all, for Scott this season.” Oberg was diagnosed with axillary artery thrombosis (blood clots) in August 2016.

SEATTLE — Justus Sheffield pitched six shutout innings for his first major league win, Dylan Moore hit a two-run homer and the Seattle Mariners beat the Colorado Rockies 5-3 on Sunday.

Sheffield (1-2), one of three pitchers 24 or younger in the Mariners’ starting rotation, gave up four hits without a walk and struck out seven in his longest stint of the season. He worked his way out of a jam with a strikeout to end the fifth, then sat down two more Rockies in the sixth before reaching his pitch limit.

Murphy's pinch-hit HR lifts Rockies over Giants 6-4

  Murphy's pinch-hit HR lifts Rockies over Giants 6-4 DENVER — Daniel Murphy hit a two-run, pinch-homer during a five-run seventh inning to lead the Colorado Rockies over the San Francisco Giants 6-4 on Thursday. Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon also homered for the Rockies to spoil Tyler Anderson’s return to Coors Field. Anderson was Colorado’s first-round pick in 2011 and was a starter for four seasons. He went 0-3 with an 11.76 ERA in 2019 before surgery in June ended his season. The Giants picked him up off waivers in October, and Thursday was his second start in four games for them. “It’s funny to me to look over and see some of your buddies, some of your best friends, over there in the box,” Anderson said.

“That was my main thing: Get to two strikes as quick as possible and put them away,” Sheffield said. “I really didn’t want to mess around.”

Sheffield never reached a 2-0 count and landed 16 first-pitch strikes against the 22 batters he faced. The lefty was especially effective with his slider.

“It's really good,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said. “It's a wipeout pitch.”

Charlie Blackmon extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a first-inning double for Colorado. He also got help from a strange bounce past second baseman Dee Gordon for a single in the fourth.

The loss snapped a three-game win streak for the Rockies, who had won seven of eight in August — including two straight over the Mariners. The defeat also ended a six-game interleague win streak.

Colorado starter German Marquez (2-2) struck out four and walked one in seven innings. He gave up six hits, including Moore’s third home run.

Fielding and throwing errors by third baseman Chris Owings on Kyle Seager’s routine grounder helped end Marquez’s outing as the Mariners added three unearned runs in the seventh to avoid a series sweep. Evan White, Tim Lopes and Gordon each drove in a run.

“If you win series, you’re going to have a good season,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. “We’ve done that so far. If we play good baseball and we let our talent show, we’re going to win games. If we continue to pitch the way we have been, our bats will come around.”


Rockies: Black gave slumping 3B Nolan Arenado the day off to rest.

Mariners: Hot-hitting C Austin Nola was an unexpected scratch from the lineup while continuing to deal with a swollen wrist. Servais said Nola was having trouble swinging the bat without pain after injuring his wrist Friday.
