  'Tactical parade' rides across Utah town waving guns and flags for Constitution Day A "tactical parade" featuring plenty of guns and "Trump 2020" gear rode through St. George Thursday as part of a Constitution Day event.Some 75 vehicles participated in the parade, which was organized by the same right-wing group that led an anti-mask rally outside a school district building several weeks ago that led to international attention over a viral video that drew jokes from Jimmy Kimmel and others.

The Rockies announced that they have sent right-hander Jacob Wallace to the Red Sox to complete the trade the teams made on Aug. 31 involving outfielder Kevin Pillar.

The 22-year-old Wallace, a third-round pick of the Rockies in 2019, debuted in Low-A ball last season and pitched to a stingy 1.29 ERA/2.94 FIP with 12.43 K/9 and 3.86 BB/9 in 21 innings. Since then, Baseball America (No. 19), MLB.com (No. 20) and FanGraphs (No. 21) have placed Wallace among Colorado’s top 25 prospects. BA writes that Wallace is “the prototypical power reliever with a mid-90s fastball and a plus slider” who could quickly make his way to the majors and turn into a back-end reliever.

Pillar, Márquez help Rockies hand Giants costly loss, 7-2

  Pillar, Márquez help Rockies hand Giants costly loss, 7-2 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Kevin Pillar homered against his former team and German Marquez pitched six strong innings to snap a five-game losing streak as the Colorado Rockies beat the San Francisco Giants 7-2 on Monday night. In the opener of an eight-game road trip to end the season, the Rockies knocked around Johnny Cueto for seven earned runs in 4 1/3 innings. © APWF Colorado Rockies left fielder Raimel Tapia (15), center fielder Kevin Pillar (11) and right fielder Sam Hilliard (22) celebrate after a 7-2 victory against the San Francisco Giants in a baseball game on Monday, Sept. 21, 2020, in San Francisco.

Wallace seems like a good return for Pillar, a pending free agent who performed decently for a non-contending Boston team before the trade. Pillar has struggled as a member of the Rockies, though, as he has batted just .255/.296/.373 in 54 plate appearances. The Rockies had designs on a playoff berth when they acquired Pillar, but they have floundered since then and now find themselves with a 22-27 record.
