Phillies Vs. Rockies Final Score: Colorado Drops Rubber Game, 5-1

The Colorado Rockies are now on a two-game losing streak following Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. After starting off the second half of the season with a solid victory against Cliff Lee on Friday night, the Rockies have stumbled over the last couple of days.

The Phillies took a 5-0 lead at the end of the fifth inning. Carlos Ruiz singled in a run during the top of the first inning while Placido Polanco hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. Then in the fifth inning, Drew Pomeranz ran into his biggest trouble when he allowed a three-run home run to Hunter Pence. That was all of that for Pomeranz, leaving after five innings, allowing five runs and striking out five. He is now 1-4 with a 3.79 ERA.

The Rockies got one run on an RBI triple in the sixth inning. Cole Hamels (11-4, 3.07 ERA) went eight innings and gave up six hits while striking out seven.

The Rockies (34-54, 19-27 home) welcome the Pittsburgh Pirates to Coors Field on Monday.
