ST. LOUIS (AP) Mike Shildt got a glimpse of the St. Louis Cardinals‘ future Wednesday night.The interim manager was plenty encouraged by what he saw in a 6-3 win over the Colorado Rockies.”That’s the blueprint of how you play the game Nolan Arenado Jersey ,” Shildt said. ”Every phase was executed (well) across the board.”Rookie outfielder Tyler O’Neill hit a tiebreaking pinch single in the sixth inning and five rookie relievers dominated over 6 1/3 innings to lift the Cardinals.”We’re playing the game the right way,” said Harrison Bader, who scored the go-ahead run on O’Neill’s single.Bader, also a rookie, had three hits and used his speed to leg out a double and set the stage for the winning tally.St. Louis starter Luke Weaver allowed two runs in 2 2/3 innings before handing off to the bullpen. Daniel Poncedeleon followed with 2 1/3 scoreless innings, and Austin Gomber Charlie Blackmon Jersey , Dakota Hudson, Jordan Hicks and Mike Mayers closed it out. Gomber (1-0) got his first career victory with a scoreless inning. Mayers allowed a run in the ninth but struck out three.”I think we all showed we are ready,” Poncedeleon said.Bader doubled with one out off Kyle Freeland (9-7) to start the go-ahead rally. O’Neill followed with a run-scoring single up the middle, his first pinch hit in nine attempts, to break the 2-all tie. O’Neill was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.”That was a big-time at-bat he took,” Shildt said. ”You saw him bear down and take a nice swing. It was good to see.”The relief corps allowed one run and two hits.”We just couldn’t solve their bullpen http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authent...gee-jersey ,” Rockies manager Bud Black said.Yadier Molina added a two-run double in the eighth to push the lead to 5-2. Marcell Ozuna followed with a run-scoring hit.The Rockies scored twice in the third, on hits by Trevor Story and Gerardo Parra.Paul DeJong cut the early 2-0 deficit in half with an RBI hit in the third. Poncedeleon brought in Yairo Munoz with a groundout to tie it in the fourth.Freeland gave up three runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings. He struck out five and walked three.”We just need to keep doing what we were doing,” Freeland said. ”Getting good starts out of starters, offense doing their thing.”St. Louis has won 17 of its last 21 at home against the Rockies.The 3-hour, 59-minute game was the Cardinals’ longest nine-inning game of the season.”It was worth it,” Bader said.TRAINER’S ROOMRockies: INF DJ LeMahieu will come off the disabled list Thursday and is expected to play in the series finale. LeMahieu has been out since July 21 with a left oblique strain.Cardinals: INF Kolten Wong will make a rehab start with Class A Peoria on Thursday. He has been out since July 22 with left knee inflammation.UP NEXTRHP Antonio Senzatela (4-3 Trevor Story Jersey , 5.01) will face RHP Miles Mikolas (11-3, 2.83) in the finale of the four-game set Thursday. Senzatela is 0-2 with a 7.94 ERA in two road starts this season. Mikolas has recorded 14 quality starts in 21 starts this season.— BALTIMORE — The Chicago White Sox will try to stretch their winning streak to four games and finish a weekend sweep of the Baltimore Orioles when the teams meet Sunday at Camden Yards.Chicago has bounced back after dropping seven straight games. The White Sox took the final game of a series with the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday and won the first two games of this series, including a 2-0 victory on Saturday night.That win also locked up the season series for the White Sox, who now lead the Orioles 4-2 with just the one game left. The White Sox (59-89) have not beaten the Orioles (42-106) in a season series since 2008.Article continues below ...Chicago has not waved the white flag in the season’s final three weeks despite struggling at times and recently dealing with that long losing streak. They’re still pushing hard in each game.“We came here to play 100 percent,” Avisail Garcia said after his solo homer in the ninth inning gave the White Sox some insurance on Saturday night. “(We) try to do our best and try to win every single game. Just trying to do our job.”Neither team could do much offensively for much of Saturday’s game. The White Sox three times tried to steal, but Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph gunned them down each time — in the third Ian Desmond Jersey , sixth and eighth innings.Chicago went ahead thanks to a two-out rally in the sixth against Baltimore starter Yefry Ramirez. Yoan Moncada doubled to right with two outs and Yolmer Sanchez came up next and sent a double to left that scored the game’s first run.Ramirez, a rookie, has likely earned another start after a solid 5 2/3-inning outing in which he gave up one run and struck out seven.“He was outstanding,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “That was fun to watch. That was as good as you want to see a young pitcher pitch.”But that one run was all the White Sox needed thanks to seven shutout innings from Reynaldo Lopez. Lucas Giolito (10-10, 5.76 ERA) will start Sunday for Chicago against Baltimore rookie David Hess (3-10, 5.17) in the final game of the season between the teams.Giolito has fared well of late http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authent...and-jersey , going 3-1 with a 4.05 ERA in his last five starts. He also has struck out 33 in 33 2/3 innings and held opponents to a .218 average.The right-hander has an 0-1 career record with a 47.25 ERA versus the Orioles thanks to one bad start the only time he pitched against them. Baltimore touched him up for seven runs and six hits in 1 1/3 innings in a May 24 loss.For Hess, who has pitched well at times, especially lately, this will be his first appearance against the White Sox.Matt Davidson returned to the Chicago lineup Saturday after sitting out the previous four games (sore left calf). Manager Rick Renteria said he wanted to get Davidson’s big bat back into the lineup — he has hit 20 homers this season — and put him in as the designated hitter.Renteria said Davidson felt good after the game and will return Sunday in the series finale but at first base.
