DENVER -- If Ryan McMahon’s first season as a regular second baseman is a sink-or-swim proposition, Sunday he helped make sure the Rockies stayed just ahead of sharks. McMahon doubled, singled and tripled, and drove in three runs in a stranger-than-necessary 10-9 victory over the Reds at Coors Field. •

DENVER -- The question is simple to ask, potentially painful to answer, but maybe scarier to not answer: Do the Rockies have the players and the gumption to try to acquire either the Blue Jays’ Marcus Stroman or the Giants’ Madison Bumgarner. Ten MLB teams are in playoff position now
