Josh Harrison proved that last month’s escape in a rundown was no fluke. He also helped the Pittsburgh Pirates avoid another sweep at Coors Field. Harrison had four hits, including a tiebreaking homer, to help the Pirates beat the Colorado Rockies 7-5 on Sunday. Gregory Polanco and Travis Snider also went deep for the Pirates, who avoided being swept in Colorado for the second straight season.

Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will undergo a dry needling procedure on his left hip Monday in Philadelphia in an effort to recover from a left hip Before the Rockies 7-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, Colorado head trainer Keith Dugger said the procedure would be done in Philadelphia by Dr. William Meyers, a leg and core muscle specialist, who performed a procedure to remove scar tissue from Tulowitzki’s groin in 2012. Dry needling involves the use of very small needle to create bleeding in areas of discomfort and promote healing.

His tie-breaking home run in the eighth was by no means the most impressive thing Josh Harrison did Sunday as the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Colorado Rockies 7-5. Harrison, who went 4-for-6 with two RBIs and two runs scored, led off the sixth with a single against Chad Bettis, stole second and made it to third as he dashed back and forth and escaped a rundown in which the Rockies made five throws. Harrison’s head-first slide took him past second base. Shortstop Josh Rutledge made a move — but a tentative one — to tag Harrison, who got into a 6-5-6-1-6-2 rundown but made it to third, getting credit for another stolen base.

Nolan Arenado wanted to put his benching behind him. Arenado rebounded with three hits, including a home run, and the Colorado Rockies routed the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-1 on Saturday night. Tyler Matzek pitched three-hit ball over seven scoreless innings. Drew Stubbs and Corey Dickerson also homered for the Rockies, who have won three straight.

The Colorado Rockies attempted to do something nice for their fans on Saturday.
Based on their recent history , we shouldn’t be a bit surprised that they failed.
OH NO RT @_Bwoss_ : . @purplerow dear god the #rockies misspelled the giveway Tulo jerseys. photo credit: vanessa wos pic.twitter.com/WFeNTL5978 — Purple Row (@PurpleRow) July 26, 2014
#Rockies give away Troy Tulowitzki jerseys, misspell Tulowitzki. #YouHadOneJob pic.twitter.com/g7KaUgj93c — Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsRadio) July 26, 2014
Those are the shirt jerseys (aka, shirseys) the team was giving away to fans prior to their game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. It’s supposed to be a Troy Tulowitzki No. 2 jersey. Instead, it says Tulowizki, which is pretty much the saddest thing we’ve seen all season in MLB. 
T-U-L-O-W-I-Z-K-I. Seriously!?
Maybe next time they should just stick to Tulo, since that’s almost impossible to screw up. Or better yet, just get it right before printing out 15,000 shirts.
The thumbnail of the Tulo jersey on the @Rockies website is misspelled too. #fail pic.twitter.com/ebmbpcf80T — Darren Whitehead (@NewsDarren) July 26, 2014
It’s Troy T-U-L-O-W-I-T-Z-K-I.
He’s only the biggest star on the team. An All-Star. A Gold Glove winner. An MVP candidate before his most recent injury. A bonafide star in MLB. Which, honestly, probably makes it a pretty nice collector’s item for all of those forward thinking fans out there. 
Update: The Rockies have since issued an apology for the gaffe.
#Rockies Monfort in an immediate press release, “Maybe Denver doesn’t deserve a Tulowizki jersey.” — Eric Goodman (@EricGoodman) July 27, 2014
Wait, that’s not it.
Here’s the real one.

Our sincere apologies to the fans for the misspelling of the Troy Tulowitzki King Soopers jersey that was distributed tonight.

Acknowledging that many fans came to the game for the jersey, rather than disappoint them, we decided to go ahead and hand them out.

We have made plans to reproduce the jersey and fans wishing to exchange will be able to do so at a future date (TBD) in September at Coors Field or the Rockies Dugout Stores. In addition, fans exchanging the jersey will receive a complimentary ticket to a future game in 2014 or 2015.

A nice gesture from the team, and certainly one that was needed. Still, it’s worth asking if Tulowitzki has asked for that trade yet, because wouldn’t it be so Rockies if he was gone before they had a chance to make this right?

Brett Anderson left Friday night’s game before he wanted to. Anderson pitched effectively into the seventh inning before a blister ended his night and the Colorado Rockies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-1. Hopefully I’ll get on a roll here.” Carlos Gonzalez homered and Josh Rutledge had two hits and drove in four runs for Colorado, which has won consecutive games for just the second time in the last six weeks. The Rockies are 16-40 since May 20 but they cooled off the Pirates, who entered Friday 44-29 since starting the season 10-18.

If there were any lingering effects from Matt Garza’s last start, he wasn’t showing it Thursday night at Miller Park. The right-hander gave up five runs and lasted just one-third of an inning his last time out but was on top of his game against the New York Mets, striking out four and issuing only one walk while giving up just one run as the Milwaukee Brewers rolled to a 9-1 victory. The lead came courtesy of the Brewers’ suddenly resurgent offense. Milwaukee scored four or fewer runs 13 times and hit seven home runs while losing 13 of 16, but on their current four-game winning streak, the Brewers are averaging 5.75 runs per game and have homered nine times.

Matt Garza was fuming after his previous start, the shortest of his career when he recorded just one out and allowed five runs. Garza allowed two hits in eight innings, and Ryan Braun hit one of three homers for the Milwaukee Brewers in a 9-1 victory over the New York Mets on Thursday night. ”His last start probably upset him enough that he had a lot to prove tonight, and he threw the ball well,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. Jonathan Lucroy and Khris Davis also connected for the Brewers, who took a 6-0 lead after three innings against Dillon Gee (4-3) to win their fourth consecutive game.
