DENVER -- When the Rockies and Rangers move their series to Texas on Wednesday, Colorado will be looking to stabilize its bullpen. The Rangers, meanwhile, will try to continue their torrid play as the schedule turns in their favor.Texas has more home games remaining than any team in the majors -- 30 of the final 48 -- and it owns a 34-17 at home.The Rangers beat the Rockies 7-5 on Tuesday, thanks to a four-run eighth, and 4-3 on Monday, thanks to a four-run ninth. In the past five games, Colorado relievers are 0-3 with three blown saves and a 9.19 ERA, having allowed 24 hits in 15 2/3 innings.When the Rockies next carry a lead into the ninth inning, Adam Ottavino will be the closer, not Carlos Estevez. Manager Walt Weiss announced that change before Tuesdays game.Estevezs ERA has rocketed from 3.66 to 5.18 in his past two games -- both blown saves and losses charged to him -- in which he allowed five hits and seven runs in two-thirds of an inning. Weiss said it was time for Estevez, a 23-year-old rookie, to regroup.Im going to get him out of that role for a little bit, just let him catch his breath, Weiss said. Part of my responsibility as a manager is to put guys in position to succeed.Hes a young player. Hes made of all the right stuff. Hes going to be a great closer in this league for a long time. But that closing role is different from any other role in the bullpen, certainly. Because your failures never go unnoticed and you feel like you let your team down because the games over.These are great lessons as a young closer in this league. And as Ive said, his future is as a closer in this league. He just needs to catch his breath for a little bit, thats all. Ive played with Hall of Fame closers. Ive seen those guys give up devastating home runs. I saw those guys fail. Its part of the role.Ottavino became the Rockies closer on April 14, 2015, and he converted his three save opportunities before his last appearance April 25. He then hurt his elbow and underwent Tommy John surgery May 7.Ottavino returned to the Rockies this season on July 5 and made 15 consecutive scoreless appearances totaling 11 2/3 innings before being moved into the closers role. On Thursday and Friday, he made back-to-back appearances for the first time since he returned.Jorge De La Rosa will start Wednesday for Colorado, which after winning 11 of 13 games has lost five of the past six. The Rockies just finished a 3-5 homestand, dropping their record to 28-29 at Coors Field. They are 27-29 on the road.De La Rosa (7-7, 5.24 ERA) didnt figure in the decision Friday against the Miami Marlins. He allowed one run in six innings, but Estevez melted down in the ninth, and the Rockies lost 5-3.He will oppose Texas left-hander Martin Perez (7-8, 4.33 ERA). Perez hasnt won a game since June 26, going 0-4 with a 6.33 ERA in his past seven starts. on Friday at Houston, Perez gave up five runs in seven innings during a 5-0 loss.The Rangers (67-47) just concluded a trip that began with two losses before they won five of the next six games. Texas has won four consecutive games, with each one decided in the seventh inning or later.I keep saying this about this ballclub -- the heart, resilience and grit these guys have, manager Jeff Banister said. I know theyre just words, but these guys bring them to life every day they go out and play. They stay engaged. Theyre never out of it.One of the main reasons is third baseman Adrian Beltre. Now that Ichiro Suzuki made it to 3,000 hits in the big leagues, the major-leaguer closest to 3,000 hits is Beltre with 2,882.His personality doesnt crave attention, Banister said, but I hope the baseball world and baseball fans awaken to become huge fans -- if theyre not already -- of a guy who is just a great baseball player. The offensive numbers that he has should wake you up and make you pay attention.Beltre hit his 430th homer on Monday, putting him one behind Cal Ripken, who is 47th on the all-time list. Beltre is 40th in career hits. Beltres two-run, game-tying double in the Rangers four-run eighth Tuesday was double No. 580, which ranks 22nd, and he has 1,535 RBI, which ranks 48th, two behind Joe DiMaggio.I listened to A-Rod talk about passion for the game and having fun playing it, Banister said, referring to Alex Rodriguezs press conference this week in which he announced he would play his last game Friday for the New York Yankees. I think we have the poster child for that. All you have to do is show up and watch (Beltre) play. And theres an unwavering desire to kick everybodys behind on the other side. He wants to win as bad as any player Ive ever been around.Before the Rangers play Wednesday, designated hitter Prince Fielder is expected to announce his retirement. Fielder, 32, hasnt played since July 19, and he underwent season-ending neck surgery July 29, his second neck operation in two years.In 89 games this season, Fielder hit .212 with eight homers and 44 RBI. A six-time All-Star, Fielder hit .283 with 319 home runs and an .887 on-base-plus-slugging percentage in 12 seasons.Its sad if he gets pushed out of baseball, Beltre said, but health and family come first.

Los Angeles front-line of star players and 12 days of rest to regain the stride the Sparks lost during the final 10 games of the regular season proved too much for the Chicago Sky to overcome in Game 1 of the WNBA semifinals.But the Sky have not lost hope and take a measure of confidence into Game 2 of the best-of-five series Friday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.Candace Parker, the 2008 and 2013 league MVP, and Nneka Ogwumike, this years MVP, combined for 57 points and 19 rebounds in the Sparks 95-75 victory in Game 1.
