Rosario helps Rockies beat D-backs 5-4 in 10
DENVER (AP) - Wilin Rosario drove in Carlos Gonzalez with a one-out single in the 10th inning to lift Colorado past the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 on Tuesday night after the Rockies squandered a late four-run lead.
Gonzalez hit a double and reliever Matt Reynolds (0-2) intentionally walked Troy Tulowitzki (too-loh-WIT'-skee) to get to Rosario, who came through with a liner to right on the first pitch.
Rosario lifted his hands in the air after touching first base and was soon mobbed by teammates.
Tulowitzki hit a solo homer and had a double to raise his average to .406 at Coors Field this season.
The Rockies brought closer Rafael Betancourt to start the 10th, but he was in some discomfort after throwing a second straight pitch into the dirt. After a few warm-up tosses, Betancourt left with a tight groin and Wilton Lopez was brought in.
Lopez (1-1) threw a perfect inning to earn the win.
Harris aims to fend off Rodgers-Cromartie
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos keep bringing in veteran free-agent cornerbacks and Chris Harris keeps fending them off.
He aims to do the same with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who signed a 1-year, $5 million deal with Denver this spring.
Last season, the Broncos brought in Drayton Florence and Tracy Porter. Florence was cut in training camp and Porter started the season as the right cornerback but got sick and never won his job back with Harris playing so well.
Rodgers-Cromartie is slated to start opposite Champ Bailey this season with Harris moving to nickel back.
That's not really a demotion because in today's pass-heavy NFL, teams consider the third cornerback another starter.
Harris also wants to start in the Broncos' base defense, though, and history shows he has a good shot.
Colorado Rapids add extra seats for Chivas USA
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado Rapids are expecting a sellout crowd for Saturday's match against Chivas USA in Commerce City.
The team announced Tuesday that it was adding extra bleacher seating and selling standing room only tickets for the game at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
The Rapids resume regular training for the match on Wednesday.
After they square off against Chivas USA, the Rapids will have a few days of rest before next week's third-round game of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
The Rapids will face either the Ocala Stampede or Orlando City.
Avs mum on report Patrick Roy may be next coach
DENVER (AP) - Avalanche fans are talking about the possibility of Hall of Fame goalie Patrick Roy (wah) becoming the next coach of the Colorado team.
Roy's younger brother, Stephane Roy, posted a Facebook note late Monday night saying his brother would be the new coach. Stephane Roy later told The Denver Post: "They're discussing the final details of an arrangement."
The organization remains silent on the report, saying in an email to The Associated Press on Tuesday that the Avs, "won't comment on any speculation on this issue."
Call-in shows revolved around Roy possibly reuniting with Joe Sakic (SAK'-ihk), who has a prominent role in the front office.
Sakic looks to steer the foundering franchise back to the glory days when the duo led the team to two Stanley Cup titles.
Colo.-based TeamSnap acquires key assets of Weplay
BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado-based company that helps people manage their recreational sports teams' activities online has acquired key assets of Weplay Inc., a sports social-networking site that had been backed by athletes including Peyton Manning and Derek Jeter.
Boulder-based TeamSnap said Tuesday it is acquiring the customer base, technology and online coaching resources of Weplay. TeamSnap CEO Dave DuPont says the acquisition cost less than $5 million. He didn't disclose other terms.
The announcement follows the news last month that TeamSnap raised $2.75 million from investors.
By adding Weplay's 2.25 million customers, TeamSnap is nearly doubling its customer base to almost 5 million users.
DuPont says TeamSnap isn't acquiring the Weplay company itself or inheriting its professional-athlete investors but is talking with some of them about potentially teaming with TeamSnap.
