Rockies Vs. Marlins: Colorado Snaps Winning Streak, Loses 6-5 To Miami

The Colorado Rockies' four-game winning streak was snapped Friday night as the team lost 6-5 to the Miami Marlins at Coors Field. The Rockies took a fourth-inning lead when back-to-back RBI singles by Wilin Rosario and Jordan Pacheco put Colorado ahead 2-1. A Jose Reyes three-run homer in the top of the fifth gave the Marlins a 4-2 lead. The Rockies again responded, this time with a three-run fifth-inning rally. Giancarlo Stanton tied the game in the top of the sixth with a mammoth home run, and a John Buck double later in the inning drove home Donovan Solano with the winning run.

Rockies starter Jeff Francis was removed after five innings in which he gave up four earned runs on five hits and struck out three. Francis did not receive the decision; the loss was credited to reliever Josh Roenicke, who gave up two earned runs and three hits while retiring just one batter in the sixth inning. Miami pitcher Wade LeBlanc, who allowed the Rockies five earned runs in five innings, got the win.

With the loss, the Rockies drop to 45-72 on the season.
