DENVER - Pinch-hitter Charlie Culberson hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning off Kyle Farnsworth, and the Colorado Rockies, down by six runs early, rallied again to beat the New York Mets 11-10 in a wild affair on Saturday night. The Mets had weathered an eight-run fifth inning by Colorado, that included Nolan Arenados grand slam, and took a 10-9 lead on Juan Lagares RBI single in the ninth inning off LaTroy Hawkins (1-0). But Troy Tulowitzki, who recorded his 1,000th career hit earlier, singled off Farnsworth (0-2) to start the bottom of the ninth. He advanced to second on a deep flyout by Arenado, and Culberson followed with a drive that cleared the centre field wall. The crowd erupted as he rounded the bases. As he neared the plate, he tossed his helmet and jumped onto home plate as he was mobbed by his teammates. It was a sudden finish to a game in which the teams combined for 30 hits, including Arenados slam that extended his major league-best hitting streak to 23 games. Tulowitzki notched his 1,000th hit in the seventh when he singled up the middle off reliever Daisuke Matsuzaka. The ninth-year pro became the fifth Rockies player with 1,000 hits and the 78th active player to reach the milestone. He scored from third on Jordan Pachecos sacrifice fly to give Colorado a 9-8 lead, but the Mets tied it again in the eighth on Chris Youngs RBI single. Staked to an early 6-0 lead, Jenrry Mejia had blanked the Rockies through the first four innings and seemed headed toward the solid pitching outing New York needed. Instead, he became the third Mets starter in a row to fail to get out of the fifth after the rotation began the season with 26 straight starts of at least five innings. The turnaround was triggered by Ryan Wheelers first home run of the season leading off the fifth. The Rockies sent 11 men to the plate in the inning. In one stunning five-pitch stretch, Mejia gave up RBI singles to Charlie Blackmon, Drew Stubbs and Carlos Gonzalez as the Rockies tied it 4-4. Mejia then hit Tulowitzki in his upper left arm with a pitch to load the bases, and Arenado drove the next pitch into the left field bleachers for his second career slam and the first by a Rockies player this season. Arenado also tied Dante Bichette for the second longest hitting streak in Rockies history. Matsuzaka then relieved Mejia, who gave up eight runs and nine hits in 4 1-3 innings. The Mets, who built a 6-0 lead off Rockies starter Franklin Morales, fought back in the sixth to tie it at 8, getting a run-scoring double from Young and an RBI single from Curtis Granderson. Daniel Murphy got the Mets going with a one-out triple in the first and scored when David Wright followed with a double. Anthony Recker and Lucas Duda added RBI singles. New York added to its lead when Wright singled to start the third, stole second and took third on a groundout. He scored on Grandersons single, and Granderson came in on a double by Anthony Recker, who scored on third baseman Arenados throwing error. NOTES: Bichette had his 23-game hitting streak in 1995. ... RHP Chad Bettis was optioned to Triple A Colorado Springs, and the Rockies recalled catcher Michael McKenry. ... RHP Jhoulys Chacin, who began the season on the disabled list because of a right shoulder strain, is slated to make his season debut Sunday for the Rockies against Mets RHP Dillon Gee (2-1). ... Wright, who had three hits, has a career batting average of .391 at Coors Field, his highest at any ballpark. Reggie White Jersey .

Fletcher Cox Jersey .C. -- Martin Kaymer set a U.IRVING, Texas - Tony Romo got an earful from Jason Garrett after the Dallas quarterback threw three first-half interceptions in a season-opening loss to San Francisco.The coachs message: These Cowboys have a chance to be really good, and so do you.Sixteen weeks later, a four-year playoff drought is over and Romo is in the Pro Bowl with one of the best passer ratings in NFL history.The message is be who you are, Garrett said about his conversation after the Cowboys fell behind by 25 points in a 28-17 loss to a 49ers team that had reached three straight NFC championship games. Youve been a great football player for a long time. Read things out. Throw it to the right guy and go play.Romo was admittedly frustrated early in the season, coming off back surgery that sidelined him for a third straight season-ending loss to keep the Cowboys out of the playoffs. He missed off-season workouts and took more time off than usual during training camp.The 34-year-old looked rusty at best against the 49ers, just a few weeks after opening camp in California by telling reporters they would see the best version of me in the coming years.He showed it the first year. Going into Sundays regular-season finale at Washington, Romo has 32 touchdowns, eight interceptions, a 70 per cent completion rate and a 114.4 QB rating that ranks sixth in NFL history. He has a chance to move ahead of Peyton Manning, whos fifth at 115.1 with Denver last year when the Broncos reached the Super Bowl.I dont think about it in individual terms, said Romo, who moved past Troy Aikman as Dallas career leader in yards passing in last weeks 42-7 win over Indianapolis that clinched the NFC East title. I just thought our football team was getting better. I thought we had some players who were going to help.Topping that list: running back DeMarco Murray and three young first-round draft picks anchoring the offensive line. All four of those made the Pro Bowl with Romo.Murray is the NFL rushing leader with 1,745 yards and needs 29 to break career NFL rushing leader Emmitt Smiths franchise record from 1995. Right guard Zack Martin is the first rookie offensive lineman to make the Pro Bowl for Dallas, while Travis Frederick got his first nod in his second season and Tyron Smith is joining Murray and receiver Dez Bryant with two straight all-star selections.To me, hes always been one of the best quarterbacks in the league, even the last two years when we went 8-8, said receiver Cole Beasley, who has four of his six career touchdowns in the past five games.dddddddddddd You put guys around a quarterback like that, hes always going to take off. Even with not many guys around him, hes still going to have a good year. Hes that good.Romo remembers the chat in early September with Garrett. There were no expectations for the Cowboys to make the playoffs, and history suggested those hopes were even more remote without the same Romo from his first seven-plus seasons as the starter.It was just great to hear from the head coach that he felt very comfortable with what was going to happen going forward, said Romo, a four-time Pro Bowler. He has the pulse of the team.Romo has the reigns, and hes used them however needed. He has one 300-yard passing game, and the only time had as few as two in a season was 2010, when he missed the final 10 games with a broken collarbone.The emergence of Murray is a big reason for that, but Romos also had his late-game moments throwing. He took the Cowboys 80 yards to the winning score at the New York Giants, using just one run from Murray and finding Bryant for the touchdown in a 31-28 victory.The most notable thing about that drive was Romo having at least 7 seconds to throw — twice. Thats why three of his linemen are headed to the Pro Bowl.Hes been good. I dont know, said Frederick, trying his best to describe how good Romo has been. I think that hes a great quarterback because of all the things that he can do. How smart he is, the way that he adjusts things, the way that he can control the offence.Garrett didnt pull Romo aside in September because he thought his quarterback needed a pick-me-up. The former offensive co-ordinator has been around him long enough to know Romo doesnt need that. He was just making a point.Tonys a tough guy, Garrett said. Hes a physically tough guy. Hes a mentally tough guy. I knew he was going to respond the right way. Thats how hes responded throughout his career. I think were seeing him like hes been for a long, long time.Statistically, Romos never been quite this good.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
