DENVER -- The struggling Colorado Rockies followed up a pregame meeting with their best offensive showing in months, and Wilin Rosario believes it was no coincidence. Thomas Muller Jersey . Rosario doubled and homered to drive in four runs, leading a Colorado offence that batted around in the first and second innings, and the Rockies snapped a five-game losing streak by beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-1 on Friday night. Manager Walt Weiss had called the meeting to discuss the clubs play on the heels of a 1-9 road trip. "It was a wake-up call," Rosario said. "But he didnt let us keep our heads down. Everybody was focused and ready to go. That was good, to show as a team that we can come back and play well." Weiss said his players deserve the credit, not him. "We got kicked around the last 10 days and had to come out and face a team with the best record in the league, and go against one of the best pitchers in the league and the guys fought," Weiss said. "I dont think it has anything to do with me. The guys went out there and competed. Im proud of them." Colorado scored double digits for the first time since also putting up 10 runs in a victory over Philadelphia two months ago. Francisco Liriano (12-5) bore the brunt of the Rockies outburst in his first appearance at hitter-friendly Coors Field, allowing a career-high 10 runs on 12 hits in 2 1-3 innings, his shortest outing of the season. "I was missing my spots a lot," Liriano said. "The slider wasnt sharp tonight either. Got behind in the count a lot. One of those days. Nothing was moving, nothing was sinking. I couldnt get anything going." With the game out of reach, Pirates infielder Josh Harrison was summoned by manager Clint Hurdle to relieve Jared Hughes and got pinch-hitter Corey Dickerson to fly out to left to close out the eighth. It was the first relief appearance of Harrisons career and marked the first time a Pirates position player had been used in a relief role since infielder Abraham Nunez got one out during a 12-1 Pittsburgh loss to the Chicago Cubs on May 30, 2004. "Why bring any other pitcher in?" said Hurdle, also a former Rockies manager. "Ive got a little experience here. You bring in another pitcher and he might end up facing four or five. We told him to keep it low and dont get hurt. He said he didnt get to work his cutter in. Its a hard at-bat for the other guy. We wanted to preserve our pen for the two games we have left to play." Jorge De La Rosa (11-6) went five innings, shaking off a blow near his pitching shoulder from Jordy Mercers comebacker and keeping the Pirates in check by working out of two bases-loaded jams early. Pittsburgh, one of only three major league teams with at least 70 wins this season, lost for the first time in six games. The Rockies had averaged just over a run per game during their skid, which included a 5-2 loss a week ago at PNC Park in which Liriano got the win with seven scoreless innings, lowering his ERA to 2.02. It increased to 2.83 after the second-chance shelling by the Rockies. "I felt like the guys attacked the big part of the field and certainly didnt go up there and try to pull them," Weiss said. "Hes got a great changeup and we made some adjustments, let the ball travel a little bit and attacked the big part of the field." The Pirates opened the game with four consecutive singles off De La Rosa but failed to score. Leadoff man Starling Marte was picked off first base by De La Rosa after singling. Jordy Mercer, Andrew McCutchen and Russell Martin hit successive singles to load the bases but De La Rosa fanned Pedro Alvarez and got Gaby Sanchez on a groundout to end the inning. Liriano retired the first batter he faced, Dexter Fowler, on a liner to short. The next six Rockies batters reached on a walk and base hits, including RBI singles by Michael Cuddyer and Todd Helton, and Rosarios two-run double. Rosario turned on a 93 mph fastball for his 16th homer of the season during the Rockies five-run second inning. Pittsburgh got a run on a bases-loaded sacrifice fly by Mercer in the second. After McCutchen walked to re-load the bases with two outs, Martin grounded out. The Rockies added a final run in the third on a fielders choice by Cuddyer. NOTES: Lirianos personal three-game winning streak was snapped. ... Pittsburgh began a stretch where it plays 13 of 16 on the road. ... A.J. Burnett (5-7), who went the distance in beating the Rockies 5-1 last time out, is set to pitch Saturday night against Colorados Juan Nicasio (6-6). ... Since mid-June, Rosario is batting .328 with 11 doubles, a triple, 6 home runs and 24 RBIs in 38 games. Mesut Ozil Jersey . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Lindsey Horan Jersey . Meanwhile, there were huge victories for Sunderland and West Ham over fellow relegation rivals, leaving the battle to avoid the drop up for grabs with the bottom 11 teams separated by just six points. Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres scored second-half goals to seal a fourth straight victory for Chelsea, which climbed above Arsenal and Manchester City in the standings ahead of their games on Monday and Sunday respectively. http://www.soccerpro.us.com/USA/Geoff-Cameron-Jersey/ . Just not the game. Kyle Palmieri scored two straight goals in the third period to rally the Anaheim Ducks past the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night. BOSTON -- The names that Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge didnt mention said all anyone needed to know about how he views the teams future. After trading up three spots to get Gonzaga 7-footer Kelly Olynyk in the NBA draft on Thursday night, Ainge described him as a complementary player who will fit in well with Rajon Rondo, Avery Johnson and Jeff Green. No mention of the teams biggest stars, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. "Cant talk about it," Ainge said when the omission was pointed out to him. But asked if there were any untradeable players on the roster, he said, "If Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar were traded, I guess everybodys tradable." According to a person with knowledge of the talks, the Celtics and Nets were nearing completion of a deal that would send Garnett and Pierce to Brooklyn in exchange for a package that included three first-round draft picks. The person confirmed the talks to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the details were to remain private. Although the details were not final -- the deal cannot be submitted to the NBA office until next month -- the Celtics were expected to get Gerald Wallace, the expiring contract of Kris Humphries and one other player while sending Jason Terry to Brooklyn. The deal would complete the breakup of the core that brought Boston its NBA-record 17th championship in 2008. The process began earlier this week when the Celtics traded coach Doc Rivers to the Los Angeles Clippers for a first-round draft pick in 2015. Boston and Los Angeles had discussed a deal for Garnett, who has a no-trade clause but was expected to waive it to remain with Rivers. But NBA commissioner David Stern said coaches could not be dealt for active players -- as opposed to draft choices -- and nixed any future deals between the Celtics and Clippers. Instead, the Celtics talked to Brooklyn. The inclusion of Pierce, who is due $15 million next season, and the possibility of swapping a rebuilding team for a contender was expected to encourage Garnett to go along. "Thats what Danny wants to do is rebuild," Rivers said from Clippers draft headquarters. "Its sad to see everybody leave Boston. You just want them to go someplace where they have a chance to win, and they have." After winning five straight Atlantic Division titles, the Celtics tumbled down the Eastern Conference standings this season, dropping all the way to thee No. Paul Pogba Jersey. 7 seed before being eliminated by the New York Knicks in the first round. Ainge has said he wanted to avoid the precipitous fall and long rebuilding process in the 1990s that followed the aging of the original Big Three of Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish -- his teammates on the teams that won it all in 1984 and 86. The Celtics were no closer to a title -- and in the midst of the longest championship drought in franchise history -- when Ainge arrived in 2003. He rode them into the draft lottery, and when the ping pong balls failed to deliver a star, he traded for Garnett and Ray Allen to join Pierce in a New Big Three that won the NBA title in its first year and returned to the finals two years later. But the team regressed after losing in the 2010 finals in seven games, and in the first-round loss to the Knicks this spring, Pierce and Garnett looked worn down. That convinced Rivers that his future was elsewhere, and Garnett and Pierce arent far behind. Instead, the Celtics begin their rebuilding around Rondo, the one player Ainge said he was not looking to trade. They also have Bradley joining him in the backcourt and Green to fill Pierces role, and now Olynyk to join Jared Sullinger at power forward after Garnetts gone. "I think were in a much better place than we were when I got here 10 years ago," Ainge said. "Our objective is to do it less painfully and to do it with more speed." Ainge sent the No. 16 pick and two future second-rounders to the Dallas Mavericks to get Olynyk, who was fifth in voting for the Wooden Award. Olynyk averaged 17.8 points and 7.3 rebounds while shooting 63 per cent from the field while leading Gonzaga to a 32-3 season. Ainge said Olynyk was athletic, playing quarterback for his high school football team. "I dont know too many players who played quarterback in high school as a 7-footer," Ainge said. The Celtics entered the night without a second-round pick, but they bought the No. 53 overall selection from the Indiana Pacers for cash and used it to pick centre Colton Iverson from Colorado State. A person with knowledge of the deal confirmed the transaction Thursday night on condition of anonymity because it was not yet official. Iverson is a 7-foot, 255-pound centre who started his career at Minnesota. Last season, after transferring to Colorado State, he led the team in scoring with 14.2 points and rebounding at 9.8.
