DENVER (AP) --Carlos Gonzalez hit a go-ahead homer in the fifth and rookie Nolan Arenado added a grand slam, lifting the Colorado Rockies to a 9-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday night in David Price's first start since his run-in with umpire Tom Hallion.
Jon Garland (3-2) threw five solid innings and surrendered three runs to help the Rockies snap an 11-game home skid in interleague play.
Arenado broke open a tight game when he lined a curveball from Price (1-3) into the left field seats in the seventh. It was his first career grand slam.
Price didn't have his best stuff, surrendering nine runs -- four earned -- in 6 2-3 innings.
The AL Cy Young Award winner had an eventful week after accusing Hallion of directing a profanity toward him during the Rays' win over the Chicago White Sox last Sunday. Price thought Hallion missed a pitch and exchanged words with the plate umpire while heading to the dugout after the seventh inning.
In this game, there were no confron...

The Tampa Bay Rays would love to hold on to David Price for a playoff run in 2013. But the team’s financial picture and his high value make him a prime candidate to trade for a haul of younger, affordable prospects. Whom the Rays eventually trade with will depend on whether they are winning enough by the trading deadline to want to keep Price, or doing poorly enough to deal...

Three essentials you need to pull off a Rockies-inspired mohawk like this one—a full head of hair, a sh*t load of gel and/or mousse, and an extreme, almost unhealthy, dedication to your favorite baseball team. I currently have none of these (cursed male pattern baldness), but back in the mid 80s I totally rocked a 3-foot Kansas City Royals/Buddy Biancalana mohawk like it was...

I’m buried so far in the cellar of my fantasy baseball league there is no hope for resurrecting any semblance of a normal season.
