Another game against the Houston Astros, another victory for the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies are now on a five-game winning streak, taking this latest one 7-6 in 10 innings.
Neither team had scored since the top of the fifth inning. In the bottom of the 10th, former Rockies prospect Aneury Rodriguez entered the game for Houston. He struck out Carlos Gonzalez, but then walked Troy Tulowitzki. Jonathan Herrera, Tuesday night's hero, pinch-hit for Matt Belisle, Tuesday night's winning pitcher, and singled to put runners on the corners.
Newly acquired Kevin Kozmanoff came to the plate with a chance to win it. During the at-bat, Herrera moved to second on a wild pitch, which eventually led to an intentional walk. Eliezer Alfonzo had a chance to win the game, but all he did was watch as Rodriguez threw a wild pitch wide of the plate, allowing Tulowitzki to score the winning run.
The Rockies knocked around Wandy Rodriguez for six runs in six innings. Tulowitzki (26) and Carlos Gonzalez (23) each hit two-run home runs off Rodriguez. In the first inning, Dexter Fowler tripled in a run and then scored on a Gonzalez single.
Aaron Cook allowed six runs in five innings, including a solo shot to Clint Barmes. Matt Belisle picked up his second straight win, his ninth of the season.
The Rockies (63-68, 35-33 home) have Thursday off before heading to Los Angeles for another series with the Dodgers.
