CHICAGO — The Cleveland Indians may not boast Antworten

American League divisional leaders Scooter Gennett Jersey , but that doesn’t mean their confidence as they head for the postseason is lacking.The Indians have 88 victories heading into Wednesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field. Although they are well off the pace for regular-season victories as others in their position after seeing their three-game winning streak snapped with a 5-4 loss on Tuesday, Cleveland may be well-suited for a lengthy postseason run just the same.“Our record, we might not have as many wins as what we had in previous years,” Indians general manager Mike Chernoff said, according the team’s official website. “But, it does feel like over the past several weeks, we’ve seen a lot of things come together in ways that we hadn’t seen for the majority of the season. So, we do feel like we’re sort of on an upward trajectory heading into the postseason.”Article continues below ...After surrendering a ninth-inning lead in Tuesday’s loss, the Indians will attempt to bounce back Wednesday behind Shane Bieber (10-5, 4.80 ERA. Bieber has dropped back-to-back decisions and is coming off a rough outing against the Boston Red Sox on Sept. 21, when he surrendered six runs and eight hits over just 4 2/3 innings while pitching in a relief effort. Bieber was scheduled to return to the starting rotation on Thursday against the Kansas City Royals but was bumped up a day to give Josh Tomlin another day of rest after he was needed in a relief appearance on Sunday.Bieber is 0-0 in one career start against the White Sox after he threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out eight earlier this season.The White Sox ended their three-game losing streak on Tuesday when Daniel Palka delivered a one-out George Foster Jersey , two run single that provided Chicago with a dramatic victory. After struggling to score runs, Chicago came up with three runs in the bottom of the ninth to bring an end to Cleveland’s winning streak. Yet as much excitement as victories like Tuesday’s generates, the White Sox continue to build for the future. On Tuesday, right fielder Avisail Garcia told reporters that he put off knee surgery for most of the season and will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee next week.Garcia said that the procedure was “nothing major,” according to the Chicago Tribune. Manager Rick Renteria said the surgery just involved “cleaning (the knee) up” and that the surgery was not being done to make any major repairs.Garcia, who hit his career-best 19th home run in Tuesday’s victory, has been on the disabled list twice this season — both times for a strained knee.“Early in the season, opening day, I (felt) something in my knee,” Garcia said, according to the Tribune. “I’ve been feeling something , something, something.”Jace Fry (2-2, 4.32) will make his first major league start for the White Sox on Wednesday. In 57 games this season, Fry has pitched 50 innings and will get his chance to demonstrate what he can do in a starting role. In 11 career relief appearances against the Indians, Fry is 1-0 with a 4.09 ERA. DENVER (AP) — Matt Holliday wore cleats from 2007. The Coors Field mojo almost felt straight from that decade, too.When Colorado made a charge to its only World Series appearance, it was behind late-season wins just like the dramatic one the Rockies pulled out on this throwback Thursday. Ian Desmond hit a two-run, two-out homer in the ninth inning, and the Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 4-3 in the return of the 38-year-old outfielder Holliday.“When something special is happening, you find ways to win games,” said Holliday , who wore a pair of black spikes that the clubhouse manager dug out of storage from ’07 since Holliday had only a gray pair. “Those are important wins and a huge swing by Ian.”Desmond lined an 88-mph splitter from reliever Kirby Yates (4-3) over the fence in left after Trevor Story singled earlier in the ninth and stole second. It was Desmond’s second career walk-off homer. His other was May 2, 2012, against Arizona.“It felt good. It felt good to win the series,” Desmond said. “Winning a series is really important this time of year.”Yates said the pitch to Desmond was one that didn’t “have any bite to it.”“I got him the other night,” Yates said. “He got me today.”Holliday was in Colorado’s starting lineup for the first time in a decade after having his contract selected from Triple-A Albuquerque before the game. He finished 0 for 3 — he was lifted for a defensive replacement in the seventh — but had a long drive in the fifth that he thought was gone. He even went into a little hop.“I remembered it was a tornado blowing in from left field,” Holliday cracked. “I hit that good.”The Rockies overcame a baserunning blunder early and a costly error late to take two of three games from the Padres and move within one game of first-place Arizona in the NL West.Jose Pirela came through with a bases-loaded, one-out hit up the middle off reliever Bryan Shaw to give the Padres a 3-2 lead. It was just after Story misplayed a slow roller.Chris Rusin (1-2) worked a scoreless ninth to pick up the win.Kyle Freeland turned in a solid outing by allowing two runs over 6 1/3 innings in the no-decision. The 25-year-old Denver native was elated to take the field with Holliday.“That’s a guy I looked up to big time, when I was in middle school and high school,” Freeland said.On a blustery day, Joey Lucchesi kept the Rockies in check for six innings. The left-hander allowed two runs and struck out six. His only major mistake was allowing a solo homer to David Dahl.Lucchesi worked his way out of a messy situation in the third courtesy of a mistake on the bases by the Rockies. With no outs and runners on first and third, Dahl broke for home on Freeland’s bunt , only to be thrown out. Charlie Blackmon then hit into a double play to end the threat.It was an emotional day for Holliday, who returned to where his career began. The team played the song “Holiday Road” from “National Lampoon’s Vacation” before the game. He also received a standing ovation before his first at-bat — a groundout to second.Holliday hasn’t played in the majors since last season with the New York Yankees. He suited up the first five seasons of his career for Colorado, hitting .290 as a rookie in 2004 and helping lead the Rockies to their only World Series appearance in 2007.“I’m grateful to be back,” said Holliday, who hit .319 with 128 homers for Colorado from 2004-08.TRAINER’S ROOMPadres: INF Christian Villanueva was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured right middle finger. INF Carlos Asuaje was recalled from Triple-A El Paso.MYERS UPDATESan Diego infielder Wil Myers wasn’t in the lineup after suffering a cut on his nose the day before. He was working on grounders at third during batting practice when a ball hit him. He entered as a pinch-hitter in the seventh and drew a walk. He hopes to play Friday.“Hopefully get back over at third again and pretend like it never happened,” Myers said.UP NEXTPadres: Open a three-game series Friday in Los Angeles against the Dodgers. LHP Clayton Richard (7-10, 5.11 ERA) goes for the Padres and LHP Rich Hill (5-4, 3.73) for the Dodgers.Rockies: RHP Antonio Senzatela (4-3, 4.47) takes the mound Friday when the Rockies start a three-game series versus St. Louis. The Cardinals will throw RHP Miles Mikolas (13-3, 2.80).
