The Colorado Rockies already have one win over the Houston Astros on Monday, and they're working to secure their second Memorial Day victory on the back-end of double-header at Coors Field. The Rockies scored one in the third inning and four in the fourth inning to get out to a 6-5 lead over the Astros through five innings, but Houston tied the game in the top of the sixth via a solo homer from Justin Maxwell. At the moment, the score is tied at 6-6.
The Rockies didn't waste any time scoring in Game 2 of the double-header, as center fielder Dexter Fowler jacked his seventh home run of the year as the opening batter of the game for Colorado. The Astros would take the lead in the top of the third when right fielder Brian Bogusevic bashed a two-run homer, his second of the season.
Colorado would take the lead in the fourth when Marco Scutaro doubled to center field to score three runs. In the previous at-bat, Folwer walked with the bases loaded to score third baseman Jordan Pacheco.
