Rockies Don't Have That Winning Feeling, Drop Game To Lowly Pirates

Denver, CO (Sports Network) – Garrett Jones homered twice as part of a four- hit night and drove in three runs as the Pirates overcame an early injury to pitcher Ross Ohlendorf to beat the Colorado Rockies, 6-2, at Coors Field.

Neil Walker added a two-run single as Pittsburgh posted back-to-back road wins for the first time since May 14-15 against the Cubs.

Ohlendorf was struck in the head by a line drive off the bat of Troy Tulowitzki in the first inning. With a runner at third and two outs, Tulowitzki lined a ball off the side of Ohlendorf’s head and the ball bounced into right field. Carlos Gonzalez scored on the play for a 1-0 Colorado lead.

Ohlendorf went to a local hospital, but a CT scan came up negative and he was diagnosed with a contusion and abrasion.

Sean Gallagher (1-0) fanned four batters over three innings to get the win.
