Rockies Lose Fifth Straight at Miami 7-4

Only the Minnesota Twins (14-27) have a worse record in Major League Baseball than the Colorado Rockies (15-26), who’s tailspin continued last night with a 7-4 loss to the Miami Marlins (23-19). The Rockies took an early 4-0 lead before giving up seven straight. The two teams face off again tonight at 5:10 MT at Marlins Park (TV: Root Sports).

Colorado gave starter Jamie Moyer a 4-0 lead before he even stepped onto the mound. Moyer worked through the first three innings with minimal damage, giving up just one run — a one-out RBI single to Austin Kearns in the third, but ultimately lasted just 3 2/3 innings.

The four-run lead wasn’t enough for Moyer, who ran into trouble in the fourth, when the Marlins sent 11 men to the plate and scored five runs, highlighted by Giancarlo Stanton’s second grand slam of the season.

Official: Monday’s Box Score.

The Rockies recorded their first hit since the first inning with two outs in the eighth, when Pacheco singled to left to chase Buehrle. But that’s all the visitors would muster, as Gonzalez grounded out to Ramirez at third and Colorado’s bid for a comeback fell short for the second straight game.

Tickets are available for the Rockie’s next home game at Coors Field vs. the Houston Astros on Monday, May 28th, and can be purchased by calling (800) 388-ROCK, or click here.
