DENVER -- D. Hydro Flask Black Friday .J. LeMahieu hasnt had much to say about his recent success, which is fine because his bat is saying plenty.LeMahieu kept tormenting the Nationals with two hits, Gerardo Parra drove in four runs and the Rockies beat Stephen Strasburg and Washington 12-10 on Wednesday.Tony Wolters homered and had three hits, and Charlie Blackmon extended his hitting streak to 12 games for the Rockies.LeMahieu singled in his first at-bat to stretch his on-base streak to 10 plate appearances, the fourth longest in club history. The streak ended when he struck out to end Colorados seven-run first inning.It was the first time Washington retired LeMahieu during this three-game series. LeMahieu was 4 for 4 on Monday and 3 for 3 with a walk Tuesday. He also walked in his final at-bat Sunday against Philadelphia.I feel comfortable, relaxed, confident, the soft-spoken LeMahieu said after raising his average to .343, second in the NL.LeMahieu has elevated his average 15 points over the last five games and combined with Blackmon at the top of the order to spark Colorados offense. Blackmon is hitting .346 since July 1.Both guys have really upped their game, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. Both are getting on base at a really high rate. Theyre a big reason why our offense is performing better.Bryce Harper homered and Jayson Werth extended his on-base streak to 45 games, the longest in Nationals history and one behind Rusty Staubs franchise record. Staub reached base in 46 straight games for the Montreal Expos spanning the 1969-70 seasons.Strasburg (15-4) continued his recent struggles with his shortest outing of the season. After winning 15 of his first 16 starts, the right-hander has allowed 19 earned runs and 24 hits in the last 11 2/3 innings. His ERA is up nearly a run, from 2.63 to 3.59, in his last four starts.You just kind of got to put them behind you, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. For one, you got to quit counting because if you dont quit counting, it goes to four and five and it gets in your head. Hell get it together.The first six batters reached against Strasburg on Wednesday. Colorado sent 11 to the plate in the first and eight more in the second to build a 9-2 lead.Parra had the big hit in the first, a three-run double that made it 4-0.Koda Glover relieved Strasburg after Wolters two-out single in the second.You dont want to just become passive or change the way you go about your business, Strasburg said. I think its just one of those games where I didnt execute it enough in spots and I got beat on it.Rockies starter Jon Gray allowed four runs and six hits in four innings and has allowed 18 earned runs over his last 11 innings.Harper made it 9-6 in the fifth with a two-run shot that traveled 461 feet to right-center. Colorado scored three times in the bottom of the inning to make it 12-6.Pedro Severino had a pinch-hit homer in the seventh and Trea Turner led off the eighth with a triple and scored on Werths sacrifice fly.Boone Logan (2-2) struck out Daniel Murphy and Harper to end the eighth before Scott Oberg allowed a solo home run to Chris Heisey before closing it out for his first save.Youd like for it to be a little easier than that after a seven-run first but thats usually how it goes here, Weiss said. You get a big inning early and you end up having to hang on. Its not how we drew it up but a great win.TRAINERS ROOMWashington: LHP Sammy Solis was placed on the 15-day DL with left shoulder inflammation. Solis got the win with an inning of relief Monday but was not available Tuesday. ... The Nationals recalled Glover from Triple-A Syracuse, and he pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings.Colorado: OF Carlos Gonzalez was not in the lineup for precautionary reasons.

Hydro Flask Cyber Monday . The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought hed torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it. http://www.waterbottleblackfriday.com/ . -- Linebacker Myles Jack ran for four touchdowns, defensive end Cassius Marsh caught a scoring pass, and No. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was arrested and accused of drunk driving Thursday in Nebraska while on probation for assaulting a police officer, the second New England player to get in serious legal trouble this summer. Dennards early-morning arrest in Lincoln, Neb., where he was a college star for the Cornhuskers, came 15 days after Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder and three days after Patriots owner Robert Kraft said the club will "be looking at our procedures and auditing how we do things" with regard to character reviews. "The New England Patriots are extremely disappointed to learn of Alfonzo Dennards arrest. We take this matter very seriously and are working to get more information on the incident," the team said in a statement. Dennards arrest is his second in 15 months. He hasnt served a 30-day jail sentence for the assault outside a Lincoln bar on Apr. 21, 2012. That is scheduled to begin next March. He also was sentenced to two years of probation. Hernandez, a star tight end, was arrested on June 26 and charged with murder in the killing of Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty. The Patriots cut Hernandez after he was arrested and before the charges were announced. Dennard and Hernandez both were highly-touted college prospects whose draft stock dropped because of character concerns. Seven days after being charged with assault, Dennard was drafted in the seventh round last year out of Nebraska by the Patriots. They drafted Hernandez in the fourth round in 2010 after he violated the substance abuse policy at Florida. "If this stuff is true, then Ive been duped and our whole organization has been duped," Kraft said Monday of the case involving Hernandez. The team did not respond to a request Thursday for Krafts reaction to Dennards arrest. The legal issues are bound to hover over the opening of training camp on July 25. Coach Bill Belichick rarely comments on such matters and instructs his players to do the same. Belichick has sometimes signed players who had troubles elsewhere if he felt they could help the team win, hoping his disciplined approach and leaders such as Tom Brady and Vince Wilfork and now-retired Patriots including Tedy Bruschi and Mike Vrabel could keep them in line. Results have been mixed. Running back Corey Dillon and wide receiver Randy Moss, disgruntled on their previous teams, avoided off-field problems with the Patriots and were productive for several seasons. Chad Johnson, then known as Chad Ochocinco, caught just 15 passes in his only season with the Patriots in 2011 but caused no off-field distractions. Dennard became a starter at cornerback in the seventh game of his rookie season. The other starter, Aqib Talib, was obtained from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Nov. 1 then signed a one-year contract on March 16. He missed his first game with the Patriots while completing a four-game suspension imposed by the NFL for violating itss policy on performance-enhancing substances. Swell Cyber Monday. Talib had been suspended without pay for the 2010 opener and fined one additional game check for violating the NFLs personal-conduct policy. That followed an altercation with a St. Petersburg cab driver during training camp in 2009. He also had charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in Texas dropped a week before he was due to be tried for allegedly firing a gun at his sisters boyfriend. On Thursday, Dennard was pulled over while driving just before 2 a.m. and failed a field sobriety test, police said. A phone listing for Dennard couldnt be found. Police spokeswoman Katie Flood said he was taken to a detoxification centre but not jailed. He also was accused of refusing a chemical test and a driving infraction. She said a final decision on the charges likely will be made by the Lincoln City Attorneys Office before the Aug. 12 court date assigned to Dennard. Assistant city prosecutor John McQuinn said his office had not yet received the citation against Dennard from police. The Patriots first preseason game is scheduled for Aug. 9 at the Philadelphia Eagles. Terry Dougherty, Dennards lawyer in the assault case, said in April that he would ask Lancaster County District Judge Stephanie Stacy to suspend the 30-day sentence if Dennard complied with the terms of his probation over the subsequent 11 months. Stacy said then that she would consider such a motion. Its unclear whether prosecutors will move to have Dennards probation revoked. Lancaster County Attorney Joe Kelly didnt immediately return a message. Dennards arrest is the latest off-field incident involving a Patriots player while he was with them or before they obtained him. Among the others: -- Brandon Meriweather, a safety drafted in the first round in 2007 from Miami, fired a gun at an assailant who had shot Dolphins backup safety Willie Cooper outside the house the two players shared with another teammate, police said. Meriweather wasnt charged and police said he used the gun legally. -- Willie Andrews, a defensive back drafted in the seventh round in 2006 from Baylor, was cut by the Patriots after being arrested twice following the 2007 season. The first arrest was for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute two days after the Patriots lost the Super Bowl to the New York Giants. -- Nick Kaczur, an offensive tackle drafted in the third round in 2005 from Toledo, pleaded guilty in July 2008 to speeding in a deal with prosecutors and was ordered to pay $355 in fines and fees. He originally was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanour punishable by up to one year in jail, after being pulled over by state troopers near Utica, N.Y. -- Albert Haynesworth, a defensive tackle obtained in a trade on July 29, 2011, pleaded no contest the following month to a charge of simple assault in a case in which he was accused of touching a waitress breast at a Washington, D.C., hotel.
