NEW YORK -- Jeurys Familia had been perfect in the regular season for almost a full calendar year, converting 52 straight save opportunities before Wednesday nights loss against St. Slip On Vans Uk. Louis.Less than 24 hours later, he blew another one.The Mets steady closer stumbled for a second straight game, allowing two runs in the ninth inning and the Colorado Rockies beat New York 2-1 Thursday for their seventh win in eight games.The All-Star right-hander entered in the top of the ninth with a 1-0 lead and couldnt hold it.Trevor Story had a leadoff single and stole second. After fellow rookie David Dahl walked, Daniel Descalso bunted up the first base line. Mets catcher Rene Rivera watched as the ball spun toward foul territory but it stopped fair, loading the bases with no outs.I dont think its a misjudgment. You have to think fast, Rivera said. You have to catch it or let it go foul, and my gut said let it roll foul and it didnt.With one out, Familia (2-3) got pinch-hitter Cristhian Adames to hit a slow grounder to the right side. First baseman James Loney misplayed the ball and Story scored to make it 1-all. Familia then threw a wild pitch, allowing Dahl to cross the plate with the go-ahead run.Thats getting back on the horse, Mets manager Terry Collins said of his typically reliable closer. This is a perfect situation to get him right back out there. We gotta get an out on the bunt play. Tough day all around again.Dealing with a rare early start to open a series because of a camp day at Citi Field, neither offense was able to do much against starters Jacob deGrom and Tyler Anderson.DeGrom allowed only one runner to reach second base over seven innings of scoreless ball.I would say thats probably the best Ive felt mechanically-wise, deGrom said.Rivera drove in the Mets only run in the second inning with a double into the right-center field gap, but was easily tagged out at third trying to stretch it into a triple.Anderson struck out five and walked none, allowing seven hits over six innings.Jordan Lyles (3-3) pitched a scoreless eighth for the Rockies, and closer Carlos Estevez had a perfect ninth for his 11th save.New York loaded the bases with no outs in the seventh inning off reliever Jake McGee. Right-hander Scott Oberg came on to retire three straight batters to end the threat.We couldve blown that game open by some ground balls, Collins said. Havent been able to do it and thats what it comes down to.TRAINERS ROOMMets: 3B Jose Reyes missed his third straight game with a strained left ribcage, hurt during his final at-bat in the first game of a doubleheader on Tuesday.

And although English league clubs are unlikely to splash cash in January, Arsenal and Chelsea could be tempted to strengthen their squads with new strikers. http://www.vanonlineuk.com/air-max-1-sale-uk.html. The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Marcus Mariota sees a noticeable upgrade in the talent around him when he looks around the Tennessee Titans locker room.We have a lot of guys in here now that are just studs, and thats exciting, Mariota said. At the same time, now the expectations are higher, the standards higher, and thats what youve got to live by. We cant just come out here and be satisfied with enough. Weve got to be coming out here trying to get better.Well, at an NFL-worst 5-27 the past two seasons, the Titans certainly have lots of room for improvement.Amy Adams Strunk, who took charge as controlling owner in March 2015, fired Ken Whisenhunt after a 1-6 start and chose to keep Mike Mularkey as head coach after he went 2-7. When she also hired a new general manager in Tennessee native Jon Robinson, who got his NFL start with the Patriots, it marked the first time since 1981 this franchise changed both coach and GM in the same offseason.Robinson started revamping the roster, bringing in a handful of free agents and trading for DeMarco Murray. He also traded away the No. 1 overall draft choice and brought in 10 draft picks for Mularkeys exotic smashmouth offense designed to help out Mariota, the quarterback taken No. 2 overall in 2015.Last season was tough, said Mariota, who lost only five games in his career at Oregon. At the same time, now we have an opportunity to build from that and get better. Im totally excited about it.Here are some things to watch for when the Titans report for training camp July 29:TENNESSEE BORDER: Mariota missed a combined four games as a rookie because he hurt each knee when hit in the pocket. Robinson signed center Ben Jones away from Houston and drafted Jack Conklin out of Michigan State eighth overall to bolster an offensive line that gave up an NFL-worst 54 sacks. An offseason injury to veteran Byron Bell erased the opportunity to move right guard Chance Warmack to left guard, and the Titans hope someone pushes undrafted free agent Quinton Spain, who started the last seven games in 2015 at left guard.IMPROVED BACKFIELD: Mularkey wants to run the ball much better to help Mariota and improve an offense that ranked 30th, averaging 3111. Nike Air Max 95 Sale Cheap. yards per game. Robinson picked up Murray for the price of a revised contract and swapping 13 spots with Philadelphia in March, hoping the running back looks much more like the NFLs 2014 Offensive Player of the Year. For insurance, Robinson also drafted Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry out of Alabama with his third selection in the second round.The new running backs could help Tennessee end an ugly drought. Only Mariota has run for 100 yards or more over the past two seasons, and the quarterback needed the longest run in the league last December to reach 100 yards.CATCHING ON: Mularkey challenged the Tennessee wide receivers this offseason to step up and play better. Injuries ended the season for both Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter, and Dorial Green-Beckham showed tantalizing flashes without consistency. Mularkey has made it very clear to Hunter he expects the fourth-year player to be a receiver defenses cant stop. Robinson also signed Rishard Matthews from Miami and drafted Tajae Sharpe of Massachusetts in the fifth round; the rookie was working with the first team as the offseason program ended.LEBEAU IN CHARGE: Ray Horton left for Cleveland after losing the head job to Mularkey, and Dick LeBeau stuck around to be defensive coordinator. Hes made it clear the Titans will go after the quarterback much more this season, trying to improve from 12th in total yards allowed but 27th in points given up. Robinson brought in veteran cornerbacks Brice McCain and Antwon Blake, and Arizona safety Rashad Johnson. Linebacker Kevin Dodd of Clemson was the No. 33 draft pick overall.INJURY UPDATE: Linebacker Derrick Morgan, who had season-ending shoulder surgery in 2015, is expected to be fully available at the start of camp. He was limited at times during the offseason. Dodd also is expected to be available after having preventative surgery on his right foot in late May.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Teresa M.
