Goals could be a rare phenomenon when the Colorado Rapids host the San

Goals could be a rare phenomenon when the Colorado Rapids host the San Jose Earthquakes on Thursday night. Jonathan Allen Redskins Jersey . Both teams have carved out a reputation for being stingy on defense this season.A defense-first philosophy has worked out much better for Colorado. The Rapids (14-5-12) trail Western Conference leader FC Dallas by just two points following a 3-2 win over Houston on Saturday. Colorado is unbeaten in its last five games and has won two straight contests.Through 31 games, the Rapids have allowed an MLS-low 29 goals and produced a league-leading 13 shutouts.Things have been a little less reliable on the offensive side at times. Colorado has just 36 total goals, tied with Chicago for second-fewest goals among MLS teams.Still, the Rapids are finally starting to find some good form in final month of the regular season. Midfielders Dominique Badji and Shkelzen Gashi have each scored three goals over the last three games. The duo combined for all three Colorado goals against the Dynamo.Will it be enough to finally break through against San Jose at home? The Earthquakes have pulled out draws in each of their last four trips to Colorado and possess a 14-game undefeated streak against the Rapids overall.San Jose (8-10-13) needs a victory to avoid officially being eliminated from MLS Cup playoff contention. The Earthquakes snapped a seven-game winless streak with a 2-1 victory over Real Salt Lake last time out, but own just one road victory in 2016.Much like Colorado, San Jose is tough on defense and inconsistent on offense. The Earthquakes have allowed just 36 goals, but have scored only 31 goals -- the fewest among MLS teams.Chris Wondolowski is the main scoring threat for San Jose. The veteran forward has a team-high 11 goals and three assists in 27 matches. He is good at creating space in the box, but his teammates have not had as much success in producing scoring chances.The Earthquakes may need a big performance from goalkeeper David Bingham to give themselves a chance to get three points. Bingham has notched seven shutouts this season and boasts the third-highest save percentage (73 percent) among keepers with 95 or more saves. Ryan Anderson Jersey . Ouellette, from Montreal, already has three Olympic gold medals since joining the team in 1999. Samaje Perine Jersey . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. http://www.authenticredskinsfanatic.com … ersey.aspx . -- Yogi Ferrell orchestrates pretty much everything in Indianas offence. DENVER -- His early career struggles behind him, Jon Gray is answering the call as the Colorado Rockies ace.Gray pitched seven strong innings, Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story hit two-run homers off relievers after starter Julio Teheran left because of an injury, and the Rockies beat the Atlanta Braves 4-3 on Friday night.Gray (6-4) shut down the Braves after allowing a run in the first inning, finishing with eight strikeouts in helping the Rockies hand the Braves their eighth straight loss at Coors Field.Hes really pitching like an ace and the futures bright with him on the mound, no doubt, Arenado said. His intensity has been up there. He expects to win. He expects to get guys out. He bears down and its been really impressive to watch him pitch lately.The Rockies first-round draft pick out of Oklahoma in 2013, Gray went without a win in his first 13 starts -- the longest streak at the start of a career in team history. Since then, though, he has gone 6-3 with a 3.77 ERA over 13 starts since earning his first victory May 13.His slider has been a difference-maker this year, Rockies manager Wat Weiss said. Its really sharp.Gray said he has become more sure of himsef on the mound, drawing on a mix of fastballs, curves, and sliders.My confidence is building and Im looking to build it more, he said.The Braves, meanwhile, were dealing with health questions about Teheran, who left the game after facing one batter in the fifth with what the team said was right lat tightness. His status was described as day to day.Lets hope its nothing big, Braves interim manager Brian Snitker said. He had a look on his face of, `Id like to try it. You want to keep going and then you end up screwing it up for weeks. They checked him out. Did everything, but felt theyd get a better read (Saturday).Teheran left after trying to run down Mark Reynolds infield hit, though the pitcher said he may have tweaked the muscle throwing a pitch in the previous inning.I was feeling a little discomfort and there was some pain, he said. I decided to come out of the game. I didnt want to make it worse.Teheran walked off the field under his own power and was relieved by Joel De La Cruz.Trailing 1-0 in the sixth, the Rockies went in front behind a four-run burst. DJ LeMahieu started the sixth with a walk and Arenado, coming off a scheduled rest day Thursday, drove a 2-2 offering from De La Cruz (0-3) into the bleachers in left-center field for his 24th home run. Ryan Anderson Youth Jersey. .Dario Alvarez relieved and Carlos Gonzalez singled ahead of the home run by Story. The Rockies rookie has 24 homers.Jace Peterson connected for a two-run homer off Jason Motte in the eighth, pulling the Braves within a run.Carlos Estevez allowed a double to Adonis Garcia and walked Ender Inciarte to start the ninth. The runners advanced on a sacrifice and Erick Aybar walked to load the bases before Estevez recovered to get Chase dArnaud on a popup and strike out Peterson for his eighth save in 11 chances.Braves pitchers picked off two baserunners, costing the Rockies scoring opportunities.Charlie Blackmon singled to lead off the game, extending his hitting streak to 14 games. He stole second but Teheran got him out with a pickoff throw from the mound, allowing the Braves pitcher to withstand Arenados two-out triple unscathed by getting Gonzalez to ground out.In the fifth, De La Cruz, who had just relieved Teheran, made his first throw from the mound to first base and Freddie Freeman tagged a diving Mark Reynolds before he could get his hand back on the bag. Nick Hundley followed with a double and was stranded at third when Blackmon flied out to end the inning.TRAINERS ROOMBraves: RHP Shea Simmons, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, was slated to make his first rehab appearance on Saturday for the Gulf Coast Rookie League Braves. Hes expected to throw one inning. ... RHP Dan Winkler, in the midst of a comeback from a right elbow fracture, threw on the side Friday and provided there are no setbacks, team officials could put together a minor league rehab schedule for him.Rockies: LF Gerardo Parra, sidelined since mid-June because of a sprained left ankle, is stepping up his conditioning workouts and could soon begin a rehab assignment. ... LHP Chris Rusin, placed on the 15-day DL in early June with a left shoulder strain, is nearing a return. Hes expected to be re-evaluated by training staff after a scheduled rehab assignment on Sunday.UP NEXTBraves: RHP Matt Wisler (4-9) has been hurt recently by the home run ball, especially on the road, where he has allowed at least two homers in each of his past three starts away from home.Rockies: LHP Tyler Anderson (2-3) has won two starts since dropping his first three career decisions.
