The Colorado Rockies (17-28) added their 7th loss out of their last 9 games as they dropped Saturday night's game, 10-3, to the Cincinnati Reds (26-20).
SP Jeremy Guthrie lasted only 5 innings, but did manage to strike out 5 hitters while walking only 1. Unfortunately for the Rockies, though, a key first inning throwing error from 3B Jordan Pacheco allowed the Reds to score 4 runs with two outs. All told, Guthrie allowed 10 hits and 2 home runs to put Colorado in a 6-3 deficit by the bottom of the fourth inning.
Pacheco (3 for 4 with a double), 2B Marco Scutaro (2 for 5 with a double) and OF Tyler Colvin (2 for 4 with 1 BB) all performed well at the plate, but could not outdo the Reds impressive lineup.
Colorado and Cincinatti will wrap up their series on Sunday at 11:10 a.m. MDT.
