DENVER -- The Atlanta Braves have gone more than two years at Coors Field without walking off the field, exchanging high-fives and savoring a victory.Indeed, the Colorado Rockies, who beat the Braves 7-3 in the opener of a four-game series Thursday night, have won seven straight games against the Braves at Coors Field, dating back to June 11, 2014. The Rockies seven-game winning streak against the Braves at Coors Field is the longest in franchise history.Julio Teheran will try to put an end to all that winning and continue his mastery over the Rockies when he makes his second consecutive start against them Friday night.On Sunday, Teheran pitched seven scoreless innings against the Rockies at Turner Field but wasnt involved in the decision when the Braves scored in the ninth to win 1-0.Teheran, who is 3-8 with a 2.79 ERA in 19 starts, is 4-1 with a 2.79 ERA against the Rockies in six starts.Jon Gray, who matched Teheran with seven scoreless innings Sunday, will again oppose him. Gray is 5-4 with a 4.33 ERA in 16 starts. He has a team-leading 103 strikeouts and 32 walks in 95 2/3 innings. He leads the Rockies with 11 quality starts and has pitched at least seven innings a team-high seven times. This will be Grays eighth start this season at Coors Field, where he is 3-0 with a 4.71 ERA and has allowed nine walks and 37 hits in 42 innings with 47 strikeouts.The latter statistic is a crucial indicator at Coors Field to Gray, 24, who is in his first full season in the big leagues.I think thats really the way you have to live here, he said. I dont necessarily think its a sinker thing or a ground ball thing. I just think you have to miss bats and be unpredictable. Dont let guys eliminate (the possibility of seeing) pitches.Gray has gotten considerably more comfortable as the season has gone on with his curveball, a pitch he started throwing in spring training.Even just show them the curveball first pitch for a strike -- they havent my slider yet and Ive already got a strike on them, Gray said. So Ive only got two more to go. Im looking for a quality pitch and with two strikes, its put-away time.In addition to a mid-90s fastball, a sharp-breaking slider and his curveball, Gray also throws a changeup.I feel like every pitch is there right now, he said. I feel like every pitch is a weapon.One of the Braves hitters Gray will oppose is Nick Markakis, who had a rather unusual streak end Thursday night. On his final at-bat in the ninth inning, Markakis struck out, swinging and missing strike three from Jason Motte.Markakis had gone 32 plate appearances without having swung and missed a pitch, a streak that began July 10 in the final game before the All-Star break and went seven full games and most of an eighth.Markakis hasnt reached 100 strikeouts in a season since 2008 and entered this season averaging one strikeout every 6.9 at-bats, which is good in todays game. This season, Markakis is hitting .260 in 94 games with 23 doubles, five homers and 47 RBI. He has 58 strikeouts and is averaging one strikeout every 6.2 at-bats.Hes got such a great eye at the plate, interim Braves manager Brian Snitker said. He doesnt expand the strike zone. Hes as disciplined a hitter as Ive seen. Its almost like if he takes a pitch, it probably was a ball.Hes got a really good eye, a good feel for the strike zone. Its like his at-bats, he really slows everything down to where he stays with balls a long time. Doesnt go out of the strike zone, obviously. Cheap Seattle Mariners Jerseys .

Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique.It would be a fitting tribute after all his hard work and dedication to see Andy Murray defeat old foe Novak Djokovic in the ATP World Tour Final on Sunday, believes Mark Petchey. The worlds top two players had contrasting wins in the semi-finals at Londons O2 Arena on Saturday, with Murray surviving a match point to beat Milos Raonic 5-7 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (11-9) in three hours and 38 minutes, the longest ever three-setter in the ATP finals.Five-time champion Djokovic needed just 66 minutes to dispatch Japans Kei Nishikori 6-1 6-1. Live Tennis: ATP World Tour Finals November 20, 2016, 5:45pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Murray arrived at the tournament needing to do better than the Serb to finish the year at the top of the rankings - a position he has held since winning the Paris Masters a fortnight ago. Now, that means winning the final.But Sky Sports Tennis analyst Petchey feels both players have a 50-50 chance of walking away with the coveted title on Sunday evening, although he thinks the ball is well and truly in Djokovics court. Murray must show belief Andy Murray must believe he can win Sundays ATP World Tour Final, says Greg Rusedski They can both win, but at this minute its advantage Novak given the quick nature of this match and to see what Andy went through emotionally and physically against Nishikori and Raonic, he said.But you cant get away from the fact that their match-ups have been very physical. Theyre both great returners, they both move great, theres lots of rallies. Highlights of the epic semi-final match between Murray and Raonic Although the court is medium fast, weve seen long matches here and a lot of rallies, so the physical aspect plays a huge part. How Andy wakes up tomorrow... I know its his last match of the year, but you cant magic energy into the legs.I just hope he feels 100 per cent for everybody here, the fans and most importantly himself. Djokovic sets up Murray final Novak Djokovic beats Kei Nishikori to reach ATP World Tour Final Murray, bidding to win the Tour Finals for the first time in his maiden final appearance, acknowledged he is feeling the strain of his gruelling run, but Petchey is adamant that he can produce one final career-defining moment.Winning means everything for Andy, but winning here is the culmination of hard work and the phenomenal effort that he puts into his sport and the sacrifices that hes made. It would be, I think, a fitting tribute, picking himself up so incredibly well to the loss at the French - those are big moments in his career, said Murrays former coacch Petchey.dddddddddddd Murray was exhausted after beating Raonic in the longest match ever in the competition He picked himself up to then go and win at Wimbledon, the Olympics and I actually think the adversity to pick himself up after defeats against Kei Nishikori [at the US Open] and Juan Martin del Potro [in the Davis Cup semi-finals] - he has picked himself up from those losses and gone on this run. He has been amazing. Murrays climb to greatness Andy Murray has climbed to the top of the tennis rankings A 24th victory of the season for the Scot would bring a fitting finale to the best year of his life and Petchey feels the debate for who is the world No 1 will finally be put to bed once and for all Sunday night.Andy is going to give Novak different spins, different pace, hes going to mix it up and hes not going to allow Novak the same kind of time on the ball and the same timing, so of course he can push him. Djokovic is looking forward to taking on Murray in Sundays final Its the first time ever the year-end number one is going to get decided here, with two players who have been clearly the best two players by a mile. You only need to look at the titles, the rankings, the points. We couldnt have asked for more.It will end the argument about who is number one.
