MIAMI -- Miscommunication between Colorado Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa and catcher Wilin Rosario had Miami Marlins fans booing in the fifth inning of Mondays season opener. Bob Probert Jersey . Rockies manager Walt Weiss was unhappy, too. Weiss addressed the issue in a 15-minute meeting with his pitcher and catcher after the Rockies gave up 14 hits and lost 10-1. De La Rosa lasted only 4 1-3 innings and allowed five runs in his first opening-day start. He drew jeers during the Marlins five-run fifth when he stepped off the rubber several times, and he said he had trouble with Rosarios change in signals made with a runner at second base. "He called a lot of my games last year," De La Rosa said. "Today we probably were not on the same page. I still like him. Thats all I can say." Weiss said the postgame meeting helped. "There were some miscommunications," he said. "Weve got to get it straightened out." Jose Fernandez struck out nine and allowed one run in six innings, and Marlins newcomer Casey McGehee drove in four runs with two doubles. The sellout crowd of 37,116 was the largest for the attendance-challenged Marlins since their new ballpark opened two years ago. The 21-year-old Fernandez earned the victory while becoming the youngest NL opening-day starter since Dwight Gooden in 1986, according to STATS. And he picked up where he left off last season, when he went 12-6 and was voted NL Rookie of the Year. "I didnt know how I was going to react to opening day," he said. "But it came out great." Carlos Gonzalez homered for the Rockies in the sixth. "Hes going to have a monster year," Weiss said. But by the time Gonzalez connected, the Rockies trailed 6-0. Even he tipped his cap to Fernandez. "When a guy like that is pitching, you expect that kind of game," Gonzalez said. "Hes one of the best." The Rockies, who began their first season since 1996 without retired first baseman Todd Helton, could have used his pop. His replacement, Justin Morneau, went 1 for 4. Michael Cuddyer, who won the NL batting title in 2013, went 2 for 4. Fernandezs strikeout total matched Josh Becketts team record for an opener. Fernandez threw 73 strikes and only 21 balls to 23 batters. The crowd included Fernandezs grandmother Olga, who lives in Cuba. She saw him pitch for the first time since he left that country at age 15. Her grandson improved to 10-0 in 16 career starts at Marlins Park with an ERA of 1.21. "She told me, Good pitching. Youve got to throw a lot more strikes, though," Fernandez said. He threw plenty, given his improved run support. The Marlins, who finished last in the majors in most offensive categories last year, totalled 14 hits while scoring in double figures, something they did only four times in 2013. Marcell Ozuna homered, doubled, singled and scored twice. Giancarlo Stanton had an RBI infield single and a run-scoring double. Adeiny Hechavarria singled three times and drove in a run. NOTES: Marlins INF Rafael Furcal, who began the season on the DL with a strained left hamstring, said he expects to play five or six games on a rehabilitation assignment. He hopes to be activated around April 14. ... Weiss had two hits and two RBIs when he started at SS in the Marlins first game 21 years ago. ... The Marlins bid for back to back no-hitters ended with the second batter, when Cuddyer singled. Henderson Alvarez pitched a no-hitter for Miami on the final day of last season. ... Miamis Nathan Eovaldi is scheduled to start against Brett Anderson on Tuesday. Andreas Athanasiou Jersey . On Saturday, the paths of Drew Tate and Kevin Glenn cross again as opposing quarterbacks. Steve Yzerman Jersey . Kenny Miller scored from the penalty spot and Camilo Sanvezzo came off the bench to add two late goals as the Whitecaps kept their playoff hopes alive with a 3-0 victory over the sagging Impact on Saturday afternoon. http://www.redwingshockeyauthentic.com/anthony-mantha-jersey/ .com) - James Harden put the Houston Rockets on his back and willed them to an overtime victory on Thursday.The Vancouver Canucks are trying to complete a season-high road trip with a winning record, which is something the Montreal Canadiens failed to accomplish over the first week of December. The Canadiens open a five-game homestand Tuesday night against the Canucks, and theyll likely do so with fresh combinations of lines to spark their struggling scoring. Catch all the action on TSN Radio 1040 in Vancouver and TSN Radio 690 in Montreal, with coverage starting at 5:30pm et/2:30pm pt. After a 16-5-1 start, Montreal has scored 13 goals on a 1-5-1 stretch, including Saturdays 4-1 loss in Dallas to cap a 1-3-0 trip. If Mondays practice was any indication, the Canadiens (17-10-2) will deploy center Alex Galchenyuk, Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher on the top line. Pacioretty, who had spent the entire season with center David Desharnais, leads the team with 12 goals and is tied with Tomas Plekanec at 20 points. Pacioretty doesnt have a point in three games and is OK with the shuffling. At times during the season, things just go stale, Pacioretty told the teams official website. Thats whats happening right now. Weve got to try to change things up and find a spark. Hopefully with the new lines, everyone can contribute. Moves like these give you that fresh feeling. You come to the rink and you feel like its Day 1 of training camp. ... I think everyone in the room has a little bit of a spark right now, and hopefully it can translate into the game. Pacioretty has scored five goals in his last three games against Vancouver and has eight points on a five-game streak. One of those goals came in a 3-2 overtime loss in Vancouver on Oct. 30. Montreal, though, has won six of eight matchups. The Canucks (18-8-2) are making their final stop on a seven-game trip that has thus far produced a 3-2-1 rrecord. Martin Frk Jersey. After Sundays 4-3 overtime loss to Ottawa, theyre in danger of dropping three straight for the first time. Settling for a point against the Senators certainly wasnt what the Canucks planned on after building a 3-0 lead on Brad Richardsons goal early in the second period. Richardson has emerged in the last six games with four goals and four assists after managing seven points in the first 22. Radim Vrbata had a goal and an assist and Kevin Bieksa also scored, but the Canucks went on the penalty kill seven times and lost all momentum. Its a lesson, Bieksa told the teams official website. We were in control. We were doing all the right things, then penalties and the next thing you know, we werent getting pucks deep, were turning pucks over, our D zone was a little bit sloppy, our forecheck was non-existent at times. All the things that have made us successful, we stopped doing. You cant take the little things for granted. Eddie Lack made 41 saves and is 2-0-2 with a 1.77 goals-against average in his last six games, while Ryan Miller has struggled lately. The first-year Vancouver starter has a 4.60 GAA over a 1-2-0 span. In Montreal, though, hes posted a 1.50 GAA on a 4-1-0 stretch. Montreals Carey Price played in all four games on the trip and posted a 3.05 GAA, but hes 5-1-0 with a 1.67 GAA in the last month at home. Price suffered the overtime loss earlier this season against Vancouver but is 5-1-2 with a 2.34 GAA in nine career matchups. The Canadiens will be without defenseman Mike Weaver, who suffered a concussion against Dallas. Center Lars Eller is dealing with an upper-body injury, and defenseman Bryan Allen has missed practice time with the flu. Canucks center Shawn Matthias missed the Ottawa game with a head injury and is day to day.
