DENVER -- The newcomer helped out his fellow rookie. Christian Yelich went 3 for 4 with two RBIs in his major league debut and impressive rookie Jose Fernandez tossed seven strong innings, lifting the Miami Marlins to a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night. Yelich, one of Miamis top prospects, became just the third Marlins player to have three or more hits in his career debut. His third single of the night, though, almost earned him a spot on the bench. After all, his manager, Mike Redmond, didnt want Yelich breaking his mark. Redmond was 3 for 3 with a homer in his big league debut with the Marlins in 1998. "When he got that third hit, I was like, Theres no way this guy can top me," Redmond said, laughing. Yelich began his career in fine fashion, too, with a single to right in the first inning. This sort of start was better than he couldve envisioned. "You can think about it and dream about it all you want, but going out there and actually living it and being able to be a part of something like this is pretty special and something Ill never forget," Yelich said. Hes taking away mementos, too: a baseball to commemorate his first hit and another in recognition of his inaugural RBI, a single to centre in the third. "Went up there and just tried to stay within myself," Yelich explained. "To go out and do that and for us to get a W is a special night." Fernandez continued to shine in his rookie season. Making his first start since appearing in the All-Star game, Fernandez (6-5) baffled the Rockies all evening as he pitched out of several jams and limited one of the leagues top-hitting teams to five hits and two runs. He also struck out eight. "I went out there and felt great," Fernandez said. Giancarlo Stanton provided some insurance with a solo homer in the eighth and Adeiny Hechavarria had an RBI double for the Marlins, who have taken two straight in the four-game series against Colorado. Jhoulys Chacin (9-5) was hit in the upper left thigh by a line drive early, but stayed in the game. He pitched seven solid innings, allowing three runs and eight hits. "It didnt affect me or anything," he said of the line drive. "Hopefully its not going to be that bad." Fernandez started out of the dugout to begin the eighth, only to be called back when the Rockies sent up a pinch hitter. The Marlins countered with reliever Mike Dunn, who tossed a perfect inning. Steve Cishek closed out the ninth for his 19th save in 21 chances, getting Todd Helton to pop out to end the game. Helton hit a solo homer to give the Rockies an early lead and Carlos Gonzalez brought in another run on a groundout. That was all the offence the Rockies could manage against Fernandez, a pitcher they had only heard about until Tuesday. Fernandez relied on a nasty curve time and time again to bail him out of potential trouble. Fernandezs only mistake was leaving a 94-mph fastball up to Helton, who lined it over the wall in right. "Im thinking, This guy, hes kind of old," Fernandez said. "I know he can hit. So maybe I have a shot to blow it by him? I blew it by him -- into the second deck. Sorry about that." The Rockies received quite a scare in the third when Hechavarrias two-out liner appeared to catch Chacin in the upper left thigh, sending the right-hander tumbling to the dirt. Chacin got back up, paced around the mound for a moment, threw a few warm-up tosses and then motioned he was all right. Chacin couldnt escape the inning unscathed as Hechavarria, who was credited with a single, stole second and scored on Yelichs single to centre. "They gave me a lead. I know its only one run, but I feel like I have to do my job and I feel like I didnt do my job by keeping the lead," Chacin said. In addition to Yelich, Jake Marisnick also made his big league debut, but wound up hitless in four plate appearances. Both Marisnick and Yelich were called up from Double-A Jacksonville on Tuesday. "Jake and I were watching the game last night on TV and we knew we were coming here at that point," Yelich said. "We were saying, Hey man, were going to be playing on that field." NOTES: Stanton is the only other Marlins player to have three hits in his career debut, going 3 for 5 on June, 8, 2010, at Philadelphia. ...

Air Max Bw Mujer . SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. Australias captain Steven Smith believes his dramatically changed team have found a way forward in their first Test since coming together, a rousing seven-wicket victory over South Africa in which the Queensland left-handers Usman Khawaja and Matt Renshaw played key roles.As well as Australia bowled, first-innings runs are going to be what defines the success or otherwise of Smiths side. To that end, Renshaws effort to see through a tough period on the first evening followed by Khawajas subsequent masterclass in dogged batting dictated much about how the match panned out. Tellingly, Smith said it helped that three new batsmen were free of the scars of the preceding five Tests. Not surprisingly, Smith wants to see more of the same.I thought we responded really well, Smith said of the challenges posed by the pink ball and floodlit conditions. We had three batters in the top six who had no scars or anything like that so they were able to come in and play their natural game, which was nice. I thought we adapted really well.I thought Usman was outstanding to come in under a pretty tricky situation on that night, opening the batting and get through that difficult period in the night and then bat the whole next day. It shows a lot about his character and what hes willing to do. I thought he played beautifully out there for seven hours to wear them down and score a big hundred. I guess thats the sort of template were looking for in our top six batters.Renshaws place will be a matter for some conjecture whenever Shaun Marsh returns to full fitness, but there was much to like about the way he played his game, tested the patience of the bowlers and put the highest premium on his wicket. Smith was enthused by what he saw. I thought he played quite well. He knows his game very well, Smith said. Obviously he got beaten a lot, but he wasnt chasing the ball. He was keeping his line. South African had some quality bowlers that nip the ball quite a bit so you cant afford to follow them. Something I thought Usman did particularly well in the first innings.He [Renshaw] played the line and let the ball that nips go past the bat and he didnt seem fazed by it at all. He just got on with the job and made them bowl to him. When they got a bit straighter he picked them off and thats the way he goes about his game and it was nice for him and Petey [Handscomb] - two guys on debut - to be there at the end.Khawaja is Renshaws state captain, and spoke with a similar level of warmth for someone who has set himself up with a Test match method in mind. Hes got a really good temperament, hes got a really good head on him, Khawaja said. What you saw today or during this Test match was one bit of Matt Renshaws game. He does havve a very good temperament, hes got a good defence he plays the ball well and plays it late.ddddddddddddBut I think hopefully youll also be able to see the other part of him because Ive seen him take down some attacks. Ive seen him come up against a few spinners and really heave them for some big sixes and really change gears. Hes 20 years old, playing Test cricket for Australia. I think hes doing great for a 20-year-old. Id think he was doing great even he was 25 years old. Hes doing pretty well.Added to the way Australia batted was the teams best fielding display for some time. In this, Smith singled out another debutant in Peter Handscomb for snaffling Faf du Plessis in the gully on the third evening. I felt a bit of a switch straight away in energy and presence around the group in our first training session out here at Adelaide Oval, Smith said.Everything felt like it was running smoothly and when we got our chance to get out into the field we had good energy and presence about ourselves. That helps in the field as well, we were able to take some pretty good catches in this Test match, a part of our game that has probably been a bit disappointing for a while now.It works hand in hand, when you have that sort of presence and energy youre able to take chances like the one Petey took to open the game up. Its been great to have these guys come in, create that energy and have that hunger and character about them to want to win and fight.Looking at the wider picture, Smith was understandably delighted to have snapped a five-match losing run ahead of the next home series against Pakistan. After two weeks of fire and brimstone, there are now some green shoots of new growth to be optimistic about.Im very happy, its much better to be on this side of the fence, he said. A little bit bittersweet, it was a disappointing series, we were outplayed in the first two Test matches by South Africa, but Im really proud of the way that the team came back in this game. There were some new players who came in, they stood up and we showed some fight and character. Thats what I want us to do and Im really proud of the way we stood up.I think we can grow from what weve done in this Test match. Its been a great start for a young group that have come together so were going to have to continue to work hard as a group to get to where we want to. Obviously they [Pakistan] are going to be another tough opposition. I think they have been playing some very good cricket. Theyve got some quality players so were going to have to be at our best if we want to get on top of them this summer as well.
