Rockies Vs. Marlins Final Score: Pacheco Leads Colorado To Win, Series Split

Behind third baseman Jordan Pacheco's big day, the Colorado Rockies avoided another home series loss by defeating the Miami Marlins, 3-2.

Pacheco put the Rockies ahead for good in the bottom of the fourth, when he deposited a first pitch fastball from Marlins starter Josh Johnson into the left field bleachers for a two-run home run, just his second of the season. Pacheco had three hits on the day, while Dexter Fowler had an RBI double, singled, and walked twice.

Adam Ottavino earned the victory by tossing three scoreless innings of crucial relief, striking out two while allowing just one hit and a walk. He took over for Drew Pomeranz, who battled issues with his control all afternoon, making it through just four innings. Despite only allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits, Pomeranz walked four batters and threw 76 pitches in an inefficient outing.

After homering in his first six games at Coors Field, Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton's streak ended on Sunday. He went 0-for-2 with two walks.
