Rockies Vs. Tigers Final Score: Colorado Takes Game 1, 12-4

The Colorado Rockies offense exploded for eight runs in the top of the 10th inning on Friday night as they defeated the Detroit Tigers 12-4. Neither team had scored since the bottom of the sixth before Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario plated Eric Young Jr. and Todd Helton with a single to left, but that was just the opening of the spigot.

After a Chris Nelson walk, Dexter Fowler hit with a sacrifice fly to left to make it 7-4. Marco Scutaro followed that up with a single to right that scored Rosario, but it was Carlos Gonzalez who delivered the big blast a batter later when he crushed a homer to right-center field. Michael Cuddyer capped the inning off with a back-to-back homer to bring the score to 12-4.

After Jeff Francis departed the game after 5.1 innings, four Rockies relievers were able to hold the Tigers scoreless, with Matt Belisle earning the win after throwing two shutout innings.
