    Matthew Boyd pitched well on Jack Morris Day

    DETROIT (AP) — Jeurys Familia Jersey , but he was still worried about disappointing one of his idols.“I think he might be mad at me for only pitching six innings,” Boyd joked after the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 4-2 Sunday to win the weekend series.The game started 20 minutes late because of the ceremony to retire Morris’ No. 47 jersey. Morris and longtime teammate Alan Trammell were inducted into the Hall of Fame earlier this month.“I think it was great for all of our players to be able to watch that ceremony, and we’ll have them out there again in a couple weeks for Tram,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. “There was a lot of franchise history on that field.”Boyd (7-10) won for the third time in four starts, giving up one run on two hits and a walk in six innings. He struck out three.Boyd has talked to Morris several times for pitching advice, even though as a finesse lefty, he’s not much like the famed righty.“The theme of every conversation we’ve had is competing,” Boyd said. “Compete on every pitch, don’t get pushed around or intimidated and give your team a chance to win.“It was special to be able to go out there and pitch like that on his day,” he said.Shane Greene pitched the ninth for his 25th save.Kohl Stewart (0-1) took the loss in his major league debut, allowing three runs on eight hits and a walk in 4 1/3 innings. He started his career with four scoreless innings, but after he got the first out in the fifth, the next five batters reached base.“I was really nervous leading up to the game, but after the first pitch, I thought I settled in,” he said. “I just needed to make a couple more pitches in the fifth inning and keep us in the game.”Twins manager Paul Molitor said Stewart should get at least one more start.“For his first time, I thought he composed himself pretty well,” Molitor said. “He had a little misfortune, but I think he’s very likely to get another chance.”The Twins took a 1-0 lead in the second when Mitch Garver tripled over JaCoby Jones‘ head in center field and scored on Johnny Field’s sacrifice fly.Grayson Greiner Mike Piazza Jersey , Victor Reyes and Jeimer Candelario hit three straight singles with one out in the fifth to tie the score.Jose Iglesias beat out an infield single on the 10th pitch of his at-bat, loading the bases, and Niko Goodrum walked to give the Tigers the lead and end Stewart’s debut.“Iglesias is not a guy who strikes out, so even when you are ahead, he can foul pitches off,” Molitor said. “It was a good battle, and Kohl kept pounding the sinker in there and got a ground ball, but not in a place where we could do anything.”Victor Martinez greeted Taylor Rogers with a sacrifice fly, making it 3-1.Max Kepler led off the eighth with a homer off Joe Jimenez, pulling the Twins within a run, but Ronny Rodriguez made it 4-2 with an RBI double in the bottom of the inning.“That was a huge hit for Ronny,” Gardenhire said. “He hasn’t played in a couple days, and he only came into this game after an injury, but he got us that big insurance run.”TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: LHP Adalberto Mejia (wrist) will have an MRI on Monday in Minnesota to try to determine a recovery plan.Tigers: Jones left the game after the third inning with a right hamstring strain. He injured himself chasing down Garver’s triple in the second inning and was undergoing tests after the game.MORRIS HONOREDMorris became the sixth Tigers player to have his number retired, with Trammell’s No. 3 scheduled for Aug. 26. Detroit has also retired manager Sparky Anderson’s No. 11 and a blank jersey for Ty Cobb.Morris, who won World Series championships for the Tigers (1984) and Twins (1991), finished his speech by thanking both teams.“It is a great honor to have this day in the city where I spent most of my career, and in front of two teams I love. Thank you and go Tigers and Twins,” he said.The Minnesota native will be honored by the Twins on Saturday , also before a game with the Tigers.UP NEXTTwins: Off on Monday before starting a two-game series at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Jake Odorizzi (4-7, 4.50) will start Tuesday against Pittsburgh’s Jameson Tallion (9-8, 3.83).Tigers: Start a three-game home series against the Chicago White Sox. Artie Lewicki (0-2, 4.76) will pitch for Detroit against Reynaldo Lopez (4-9, 4.30). DENVER (AP) — Charlie Blackmon’s bushy beard dripped with bubbly, while Carlos Gonzalez cheerfully soaked up all the spray coming at him from every direction. Nolan Arenado posed for picture after picture as teammates got selfies with him.Think this party scene was wild, hold on. The Colorado Rockies are hoping to exchange those hats that read, “Postseason,” for ones that say, “NL West Champions.”Now that would really be a party.The NL West-leading Rockies locked up a playoff berth for the second straight season, beating the Washington Nationals 5-2 on Friday night for their eighth win in a row behind a resilient start from Kyle Freeland.David Dahl homered for the fifth consecutive game and Ian Desmond hit a two-run homer against his former team to help Colorado clinch at least a wild card with two games remaining. The Rockies remained one game ahead of Los Angeles as they try to wrap up the franchise’s first division crown. The Dodgers won 3-1 in San Francisco.“It’s a playoff atmosphere,” Arenado said. “The good thing about us is we’ve been in a playoff atmosphere before. We know how to handle it.”Colorado can take the NL West title — and end Los Angeles’ five-year reign — with a win Saturday and a Dodgers loss.Wade Davis struck out Bryce Harper looking to end the game and earn his 43rd save. The sellout crowd at Coors Field roared and fireworks went off.Plenty to celebrate: The Rockies are headed to the postseason in back-to-back years for the first time in team history. This is their fifth playoff trip since the franchise began in 1993 — last year, they lost to Arizona in the NL wild-card game.“It’s just incredible,” said Freeland, who grew up in Denver and was a big Rockies fan. “I dreamt of this as a little kid and never thought I’d be in this position to do it. But the work is not done.”Freeland (17-7) wiggled out of jam after jam on a cool night to finish the season with a 2.40 ERA in games at the hitter-friendly ballpark. The lefty allowed two runs and 11 hits over six innings before turning it over to a staunch bullpen.The Rockies’ winning streak is their longest since capturing eight straight in April 2013. During the current streak, the Rockies have outscored opponents by a 57-12 margin.With posters around the stadium billing this as “The Hunt for Rocktober,” the team improved to 18-8 in September. They’re on a quest to end the Dodgers’ five-year reign as division champions.Freeland found himself in trouble quite often, but was able to work his way out of it. His one big mistake was a fastball in the fourth that Trea Turner lined for a two-out, two-run triple to give the Nationals a 2-1 lead.Desmond put the Rockies up 3-2 in the fifth with his 22nd homer of the season. Two pitches later Wilmer Flores Jersey , Chris Iannetta went deep. It was the fifth time the Rockies have hit back-to-back homers this season.With his solo shot in the sixth, Dahl became the fourth Rockies player to homer in five straight games. He joins Dante Bichette (1995), Larry Walker (1999) and Arenado (2015).Freeland finished with a 2.85 ERA overall this season. He joins Marvin Freeman (2.80, 1994) and Ubaldo Jimenez (2.88, 2010) as the only Rockies pitchers who qualified for the league ERA title with a mark below 3.00.Joe Ross (0-2) allowed four runs over five innings in his third start since undergoing Tommy John surgery last year.“I felt OK. The last couple innings, my stuff kind of flattened out,” Ross said. “That’s frustrating, the team had the lead and then I give it right back.”The party in the Rockies clubhouse was wild, but not too wild for one reason.“This is just the first step,” Gonzalez said. “We understand we have a big chance in front of us.”TRAINER’S ROOMNationals: INF Ryan Zimmerman was out of the starting lineup with a sore back and the team plans to take a cautious approach. “I don’t want him to start the offseason worried about rehabbing,” manager Dave Martinez said.Rockies: LHP Tyler Anderson’s sore shoulder is a “little better,” manager Bud Black said. “He seems to be trending in the right direction.”PAIR OF ACESWashington will throw right-hander Stephen Strasburg (9-7, 3.77 ERA) on Saturday. But whether NL Cy Young candidate Max Scherzer (18-7, 2.53) starts Sunday largely depends on what’s still at stake for the Rockies.“We’re going to relish the moment,” Arenado said of possibly facing two aces. “You have to face the best pitchers in the game to get where you want to be.”UP NEXTThe Rockies will send RHP Jon Gray (12-8, 4.91 ERA) to the mound Saturday against Strasburg, who’s looking to hit the 10-win mark for a fifth straight season.
