Pirates Vs. Rockies Score Update: Colorado Trails 6-5 Early

After taking an early lead, the Colorado Rockies are now trailing 6-5 to the Pittsburgh Pirates through three innings of play at Coors Field on Wednesday afternoon. The wheels have come off for Rockies starter Jeremy Guthrie once again, as he didn't even make it out of the third inning.

The Rockies actually scored the first three runs of the game en route to a 5-1 lead through two innings, but Guthrie proceeded to blow that lead fairly quickly. After getting two outs following a lead-off single in the third frame, Guthrie simply fell apart, facing six consecutive hitters without recording a single out.

A three-run homer by Pittsburgh's Garrett Jones proved to be particularly damaging, especially after the subsequent two hitters both got on base despite failing to hit the ball out of the infield. Guthrie just looked lost by the end, eventually being replaced by Matt Reynolds, who struck out Pirates pitcher James McDonald to end the inning.

Dexter Fowler and Carlos Gonzalez have led Colorado's offense so far on Wednesday, as each outfielder has contributed a homer and a walk, respectively. Jordan Pacheco has added a pair of singles, although his error in the top of the third inning proved to be costly.
