DENVER -- Josh Reddick enjoyed a strong debut on defense but he and the rest of the Los Angeles Dodgers had a tough time against Colorado pitching.Reddick made two fine plays in right field and went hitless in his first game with the Dodgers as they lost to the surging Rockies 7-3 on Tuesday night.Yasmani Grandal homered and Justin Turner had two doubles and two RBI for Los Angeles, which failed to gain ground on NL West-leading San Francisco.Brandon McCarthy struggled in his sixth start of the year. The right-hander was chased in the fourth inning after throwing 85 pitches.Tonight was the first time of his starts where we really saw him struggle with the lack of command, with the feel, manager Dave Roberts said. I dont know if it was the altitude and the dryness -- he just didnt have feel for any of his pitches.Reddick finished 0 for 4 but made a difference in right field. He made a diving catch of Charlie Blackmons sinking liner in the seventh and threw out Carlos Gonzalez at the plate in the eighth.Reddick was acquired from Oakland on Monday in a five-player trade, leading to the demotion of outfielder Yasiel Puig.Puig was sent to the minors. General manager Farhain Zaidi said Puig has 72 hours to report to Triple-A Oklahoma City and is expected to be there by the weekend.This is what we as an organization felt was the best for his development, Roberts said. There are things on the field and off the field that he can continue to work on, and we can all continue to grow. We expect him to understand that this is not punitive, its for his growth to ultimately become a better baseball player.Gonzalez had four RBI and three hits to extend his hitting streak to 14 games. Jon Gray labored through five innings but handed a 7-0 lead to the bullpen.Colorado has won 10 of 12 to reach the .500 mark. The surprising Rockies moved within 3 1/2 games of the second NL wild card, with three teams between them and Miami.The win took some of the sting off news that rookie shortstop Trevor Story will likely miss the rest of the season because of a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb. Storys 27 homers lead the NL and are the most by a rookie shortstop in National League history.The Rockies scored a run in the third and added three more in the fourth with only one hit. McCarthy (2-2) walked the first two batters of the inning and was lifted for Luis Avilan, who allowed both runners to score and another one in on Gonzalezs groundout that made it 4-0.The feel just wasnt there, McCarthy said. I tried as much as I could to battle through. It just felt very weird. The first few batters I could just tell right away with just misses.Gray (8-4) struck out six and allowed only two hits but needed 96 pitches to get through five innings. He worked around a 38-minute rain delay in the first.Colorado scored three more off reliever Jesse Chavez, who made his Dodgers debut after coming over in a trade with Toronto on Monday. Gonzalez knocked in two with a double.Turner spoiled the shutout bid with a two-run double in the eighth. Grandal hit a solo homer, his 16th, in the ninth.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: LHP Rich Hill (hand) did some long tossing and will throw a bullpen Wednesday. Hill, who came to the Dodgers in the deal that included Reddick, might go out for one rehab start before making his Dodgers debut.FANDEMONIUMFour fans jumped over the wall along the first base line and rushed the field carrying signs in the top of the seventh inning. They were tackled by security personnel before they could reach any players and were taken off the field.A press release from Direct Action Everywhere, an animal rights group, claimed that the four people were activists with its group and carried signs that said Dodgers Torture Animals and Keep Animal Cruelty Out of Sports.UP NEXTThe Dodgers have not announced who will pitch against Colorado LHP Tyler Anderson on Wednesday. Anderson (3-3, 3.33 ERA) allowed one run in six innings during Colorados win over the New York Mets on Thursday but didnt get a decision. Vapormax Flyknit Triple Black .

LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. Well, here we are: the eve of the Rocket League Championship Series Season 2 Grand Finals. Concluding an enthralling season, the Grand Finals will seek to live up to the hype with the four best teams from each region competing for the $50,000 grand prize.Will the champion be a European team on home soil in Amsterdam? Will it be a North American team invading Europe? Heres what you might see when the action kicks off Saturday at 7 a.m. ET.Match 1: NRG versus Precision ZThis first match features North Americas No. 1 seed and Europes No 4. Normally these matches arent close, but Precision Z has shown the ability to take down anyone and create magical upsets. While Precision Z might not create the magic it has shown in the past, its expected to keep it close. NRG choked last time, but it surely wont choke in the very first match of the event.Prediction: NRG 3-2 Precision ZMatch 2: Northern Gaming versus GenesisNorth Americas third seed will look to keep the train rolling in Amsterdam, but coming up against Northern Gaming is no feeble task. This set should really be a chance for either team to establish itself at the Grand Finals and steady the emotions on LAN. Unfortunately for Genesis, this set shouldnt be too close with Northern Gaming looking like the second-best team in the world.Prediction: Northern 3-1 GenesisMatch 3: FlipSid3 Tactics versus Taake 3I would love to say Take 3 could win this.dddddddddddd I really would. It cannot. FlipSid3 Tactics has looked incredible in recent months and seems to, once again, be the best team in the world. Take 3 simply does not have the individual skill or teamplay to be expected to keep up with FlipSid3. This set should reflect that and FlipSid3 should be able to comfortably advance to the latter rounds and probably the finals. If Take 3 were to pull off this upset, it would be one of the largest in Rocket League history.Prediction: FlipSid3 3-0 Take 3Match 4: Mockit Aces vs OrbitA matchup of two of the best teams in the world in the first round -- what could be better? Orbit comes in as the North American No. 2 seed, but for a majority of the season seemed the best team in the league by a large margin. Mockit Aces, on the other hand, are the stalwart third-best in Europes Big Three and will be hoping to round off the day with a European three-peat. This should be one of the best matches of the day between two very good teams; in the end Orbit may just edge it over the European giants.Prediction: Orbit 3-2 Mockit AcesKeep up-to-date on the RLCS Grand Finals with the ESPN Esports website, Facebook, Twitter and the ESPN App. ' ' '
