DENVER -- Two surging teams will meet when the Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers begin a three-game series Tuesday at Coors Field.The Rockies are coming off a 5-2 road trip in which they played Baltimore and the New York Mets. Colorado has won nine of its past 11 games and is 12-5 in the second half. Entering Monday, the Rockies (52-53) are five games behind Miami for the second wild-card spot, with St. Louis, the Mets and Pittsburgh also trailing the Marlins but ahead of the Rockies.Were playing really well, and its really exciting where we are at right now, second baseman DJ LeMahieu said. We believe in ourselves, and you cant fake that belief. Everybody is doing their job and doing it very well. Everybody knows their role, and we are executing. Its been fun.The three-game series with the Dodgers is the start of an eight-game homestand that will include visits by the Marlins (three games) and Texas Rangers (two). The Rockies are 25-24 at home, having moved above .500 for the first time since they were 4-3 on April 22 when they completed a four-game sweep of the Braves on July 24 to conclude a 5-2 homestand.The Rockies starting pitchers recorded 20 quality starts in July, the most in franchise history for a single month. In the past 11 games, the Colorado starters have gone 8-0 with a 2.09 ERA (69 innings, 16 earned runs.Jon Gray, who is 7-4 with a season-low 3.94 ERA in 18 starts and will take the mound Tuesday, has been a rotation mainstay as of late. He has pitched seven innings in his past three starts, going 2-0 with an 0.86 ERA in those games. Gray, who leads the team with 19 quality starts, is 4-0 with a 4.22 ERA in eight starts this season at Coors Field. He hasnt lost since July 3 when he gave up three runs to the Dodgers in six innings at Los Angeles, and the Rockies fell 4-1.Rockies left fielder David Dahl will make his Coors Field debut Tuesday after hitting .370 (10-for-27) in his first seven games in the majors with two homers, three RBI and six runs scored.Rockies shortstop Trevor Story hopes to play. He jammed his left thumb and left Saturdays game in the fourth inning and didnt play Sunday.The Dodgers were active Monday before the non-waiver trade deadline. They acquired outfielder Josh Reddick and starting pitcher Rich Hill from Oakland, and obtained reliever Jesse Chavez from Toronto and pitcher Josh Fields from Houston. Hill is on the disabled list with a blister but could return as soon as this weekend.We were real motivated to keep the momentum going and help the teams recent surge continue, general manager Farhan Zaidi said. Were in a pretty good position to make a run, and we wanted to go out and get the pieces to help.The addition of Reddick as a potential right fielder puts into question Yasiel Puigs status with the team. Puig did not travel with the Dodgers to Colorado on Monday after he was told he would be traded or demoted, FOX Sports reported.The Dodgers were eight games behind the Giants in the NL West when Clayton Kershaw last pitched for them on June 26. They have since gone 18-10, including five wins in their past seven games, and are just two games behind the Giants.The Dodgers averaged 4.14 runs per game in the 77 games while Kershaw was active. But in the past 28 games without Kershaw, the Dodgers have averaged one more run per game. And while going 15-9 in July, the Dodgers led the National League with an average of 5.25 runs per game.Brandon McCarthy, who will start for Los Angeles on Tuesday, is 2-1 with a 2.39 ERA in five starts since returning from Tommy John surgery April 30, 2015. The first of those starts was July 3 against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium, and McCarthy threw five scoreless innings. In his two career starts at Coors Field, McCarthy is 0-1 with a 7.50 ERA. McCarthy has made six career starts against Colorado, going 2-2 with a 4.63 ERA.Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is one home run away from 300 for his career. But he has hit only nine homers this season. Gonzalez, who last homered on July 24, has hit 19 homers in 360 plate appearances at Coors Field where he is hitting .311 with a .943 OPS. Sheldon Day Jersey . Instead of dwelling on the negative, Oates focused on what was good about the clubs recent play. It worked. Dave Parks Jersey . Brazilian national coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has confirmed that the veteran goalkeeper is set to join Toronto on loan, saying it will help him be ready for the World Cup. http://www.custom49ersjersey.com/custom-ted-kwalick-jersey-large-1828d.html . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. Dre Greenlaw Jersey . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era. R. C. Owens Jersey . Terms of the deal were not immediately available. The 26-year-old finished last season with Clevelands Triple-A affiliate in Columbus after signing with the Indians in August. CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- Rashawn Thomas scored a season-high 25 points with six rebounds and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi beat Texas-San Antonio 73-69 on Sunday.Thomas was 7 of 15 from the field and 11 of 14 from the line for Texas A&M-CC (7-2). Islanders coach Willis Wilson, formerly head coach at Rice for 16 years, earned his 300th career coaching victory. Ehab Amin added 18 points with eight rebounds and three steals and Kareem South finished with 11 points.UTSA (3-8) was led by Nick Billingsley offf the bench with 13 points and Byron Frohnen had 12.ddddddddddddThe Roadrunners led for much of the first half, but a 12-6 run going into halftime gave the Islanders a six-point lead, 32-26, at intermission.UTSA got it to one on Gino Littles layup with 45 seconds left, but Joseph Kilgore responded with a dunk the next trip down and the Islanders held off the challenge.
