Rockies Vs. Marlins Final Score: Mike Stanton's Three-Run Homer Gives Florida 6-3 Victory

In what has become an all-too-common experience, the Colorado Rockies were on the wrong end of a potential no-hitter in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Florida Marlins. Dexter Fowler broke up the no-hitter in the top of the sixth with a double, just as did on Friday night in the ninth against Anibal Sanchez. That's when it appeared the Rockies had started their comeback.

Down 3-0 in the sixth inning, Fowler scored on a Jonathan Herrera double. Then in the eighth inning, Ty Wigginton walked and Dexter Fowler put down a bunt, putting runners on first and second. A passed ball allowed them to move up a base. A Carlos Gonzalez sac fly and a Troy Tulowitzki double to left center field tied the game at three. But Seth Smith struck out to end the inning.

In the eighth inning, Matt Belisle (2-1) entered with one out and allowed a single and walk. Mike Stanton came to the plate and blasted a home run to left field, putting the Marlins up, 6-3. The Marlins had just three hits in the game.

Both the Marlins' Josh Johnson and the Rockies' Ubaldo Jimenez pitched well for the first five innings and four innings, respectively. Johnson allowed one run in seven innings and struck out six. Jimenez didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning. He had walked three batters in that inning and then gave up a three-run triple to Omar Infante for the first hit of the game. That was the end of his day, striking out seven and allowing three runs.

The Rockies (14-7) head to Chicago on Monday to start a three-game series with the Chicago Cubs. Esmil Rogers will throw against Matt Garza.
