DENVER - Carlos Gonzalezs fifth-inning base hit didnt land far from Arizona right fielder Gerardo Parra, who held him to a single with a quick throw to second base. Adrian Beltre Jersey . Trouble is, D.J. LeMahieu, running on the pitch, was about to score all the way from first. The relay from shortstop Chris Owings beat LeMahieu to the plate, but catcher Miguel Montero couldnt hang onto the low throw and LeMahieu slid across with the go-ahead run. Rockies manager Walt Weiss praised both LeMahieu and third base coach Stu Cole. "D.J.s got to give Stu the opportunity to wave him and thats what he did. He never slowed down and gave Stu the opportunity to make a gutsy call," Weiss said after Colorados come-from-behind 9-4 victory Saturday night. "It still seemed like we had the runner beat with the throw but we didnt hold on to it," manager Kirk Gibson lamented after the Diamondbacks fourth straight loss left them with a 1-7 record and their worst start in franchise history. "It was a pressure play they put on us. We didnt execute it." Gonzalez was as surprised as the D-Backs were when he looked back and saw LeMahieu huffing for home. "It was awesome, a heads-up play," Gonzalez said. "Parra kind of falls asleep in right field thinking that I was going to go to second base, throws the ball to second base, D.J. never stopped and that was the go-ahead run, that was what we needed. And once again, the bullpen did an amazing job tonight holding the opposing team and we just kept scoring runs." After falling behind 4-0, the Rockies scored the games final nine runs for their second straight blowout of the reeling D-Backs. Nolan Arenado homered twice for his first career multi-homer game, Michael Cuddyer went deep, rookie right-hander Tommy Kahnle picked up his first major league victory, Charlie Blackmon went 3 for 4, tying the Rockies franchise record with nine hits in consecutive games, and Colorado snapped Paul Goldschmidts 26-game hitting streak that was the longest in the majors. Yet, it was LeMahieus hustle play that truly epitomized the Rockies successful night. Its the kind of aggressiveness on the base paths Weiss has been preaching about all spring that will be required of his team if the Rockies are going to have the kind of season their owner thinks they can. He predicted a 90-win season in the competitive NL West. Never looking back, LeMahieu didnt see where Gonzalez had hit the ball, "but I could kind of see by Stus body language that if something happened, if he bobbled it or whatever, that we could take an extra base there. It was a great call by him." Gonzalez praised both Cole and LeMahieu with his most improbable of RBIs. "He thanked me for my hustle and getting him that RBI," LeMahieu said with a chuckle. "It feels good as a teammate to pick up an RBI for a guy like that." That hustle also benefited Kahnle (1-0), who was selected in the 2013 Rule 5 draft from the New York Yankees. He pitched 1 2-3 innings of one-hit ball in relief of starter Jorge De La Rosa, who struggled through his second straight start. Brandon McCarthy (0-1) surrendered six earned runs on seven hits in six innings for Arizona. The Rockies fell behind 4-0 before scoring three times in the fourth and twice in the fifth to take the lead. De La Rosa allowed four runs, three of them earned, on four hits. He struggled through a 42-pitch, 21-minute first inning but only gave up one run on Martin Prados double into the left-field corner that scored Goldschmidt from first. He also gave up a two-run homer to Mark Trumbo, his fourth, in the third inning. Notes: Goldschmidt went 0-for-2 with two walks. ... Blackmons nine hits in two games tied the franchise mark set by Juan Pierre in 2002. ... Trumbo now has four home runs and 11 RBIs in five career games at Coors Field. ... De La Rosa threw 101 pitches, 30 more than McCarthy threw in six full innings. ... Colorado SS Troy Tulowitzki took a designated day off. ... The series wraps up Sunday afternoon with the D-Backs sending LHP Wade Miley (1-1) against LHP Brett Anderson (0-1). Shin-Soo Choo Jersey . Bell Medias 12-year partnership with the Ottawa Senators includes five major components: - English-language regional television broadcast rights for TSN – a minimum of 52 regular season and pre-season games - French-language regional television broadcast rights for RDS – a minimum of 40 regular season and pre-season games - English-language broadcast rights for TSN Radio 1200 – all games - French-language radio broadcast rights – all games - Telecommunications and retail sponsorship and activation rights "We recognized early on that our regional broadcast rights coming up for renewal was a very important asset," said Senators owner Eugene Melnyk. Prince Fielder Jersey . Diego Costa headed in Gabis corner seven minutes from time to secure victory ahead of the return match in Madrid on March 11. "We know that at Madrid it will be another game, which will also be important and very difficult," Milan coach Clarence Seedorf said. . Villar connected off Joe Saunders (11-14), sending a drive well over the left-field fence for his first career homer. The Astros scored six times in the first three innings to chase Saunders. VANCOUVER -- Nigel Reo-Coker picked a good time to shine offensively -- and miss a glorious scoring chance. Reo-Coker assisted on the only goal the Whitecaps needed and misfired on the play leading to their second as Vancouver blanked the San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 on Saturday. Brazilian striker Camilo, on a pass from Reo-Coker, and Kenny Miller, on the Englishmans miss, scored second-half goals 14 minutes apart as the Whitecaps (10-7-6) ended a three-game winless skid before a crowd of 20,151 at B.C. Place Stadium. Vancouver also put six points between the two clubs in the ultra-tight Western Conference. The Earthquakes (8-10-6) saw their winning streak end at three games. Reo-Coker, a 29-year-old midfielder from London who logged more than 200 matches in the English Premier League, said he was able to succeed after coach Martin Rennie instructed him to play more of an attacking role. "It gave me a bit more freedom to get in the box and join in with the forwards and the strikers," said Reo-Coker. "And thats what I did." Whitecaps goalkeeper David Ousted recorded his first MLS shutout as he made his home debut, and only his second start, since signing with Vancouver in June. It was Vancouvers fourth clean sheet of the season by three different goalkeepers. After a tight, scoreless first half, Reo-Coker stood out as the clock struck the 60th minute when he sprinted with the ball from midfield, ran down the right flank with two defenders giving chase and put a pass behind another to Camilo, who flicked the ball inside the far post to give the Whitecaps a 1-0 lead. "I just saw (Camilo) out of the corner of my eye," said Reo-Coker. "So all I could do was just put it in there, because I couldnt take it any further. So I just put it in the box and then hoped that he could get there." The goal was Camilos 14th of the season and moved him into a tie for the MLS scoring lead with Chicagos Mike Magee, who was also playing Saturday. "Its very important," said Camilo of the league scoring lead. "Im more happy (when) our team wins the really important games. Today, we pick up three points. Its very important for us." Miller gave the Whitecaps a 2-0 lead in the 74th minute as he put in a Russell Teibert cross from the right flank. The goal came after Reo-Coker mis-kicked on Teiberts pass, hitting nothing but air, and the ball went through to Miller, who returned after missing the previous game with a groin injury. "It was a great goal by Kenny," said an embarrassed Reo-Coker with a chuckle. "Im just happy the team made a goal on that. We got the goal and we got the result. Thats the main thing, getting the result." Reo-Cokers offensive efforts came after he blocked Chris Wondolowskis attempt to tap in a rebound off goalkeeper Ousteds hand in the 53rd minute. The two second-half goals, which gave the Whitecaps 36 on the season, surpassing their totals in the past two campaigns, were just reward for Vancouvers strong defensive effort in the first 45 minutes. Mike Napoli Jersey. Ousted, a former Danish Superliga star who signed with the Whitecaps in June, excelled in making five saves. San Jose counterpart Jon Busch was credited with just two as his team recorded 18 attempts on goal compared to 11 for Vancouver. Ousted kept the first half scoreless as he dove to get his arm on a Cordell Cato shot in the 39th minute. In the 70th minute, the Vancouver goalkeeper caught a short-range bicycle kick from former Whitecap Shea Salinas, whose free kick led to the Wondolowski scoring chance that Reo-Coker stopped earlier in the second half. "It was great getting (the first MLS shutout) at home, at B.C. Place in front of the home fans," said Ousted. "It was good to get started with a clean sheet and a nice win. "Its important right now with the table being as tight as it is and (the need for) getting the points at home." Vancouvers Gershon Koffie, playing in the holding midfielder spot for the first time, was also a strong presence as he returned from a one-game suspension for yellow-card accumulation. He filled the role usually performed by Jun Marques Davidson, who returned to the lineup from a one-game suspension for head-butting a Philadelphia player two weeks ago but was relegated to the bench. Rennie felt Koffie played his best game in a long time. "There was a lot of great individual performances today," said Rennie. "Im just really happy with the performance and, ultimately, with the win." The loss spoiled Earthquakes interim coach Mark Watsons first game in his hometown since taking over in June from Frank Yallop, who also grew up in Vancouver. "We are obviously very disappointed," said Watson. "It was a big game. We knew there was a lot on the line. ... They took their chances -- and we didnt. Notes: Central defender Andy OBrien returned to Vancouvers lineup after missing two months with a hamstring injury suffered in early June, but did not play. ... Whitecaps captain Jay DeMerit, who suffered a torn Achilles tendon in the first game of the season, hopes to sign a contract extension in the near future. He was negotiating with the club at the start of the season, but talks were put on hold as he recovered from his injury. He has resumed full training and is expected back in late August or early September. ... Earthquakes goalkeeper Jon Busch has played every minute of each match this season. ... San Joses Clarence Goodson and Rafael Baca both drew yellow cards for fouls on Teibert in the first half. But Teibert also received a yellow card in the second half. ... Vancouver striker Tommy Heinemann made a rare appearance as he subbed in for Miller in the final 86th minute.

It looked like it would be easy when Rene Bourque scored for the Montreal Canadiens only 11 seconds into the game.
