Houston Astros Beat Colorado Rockies with Runs Late in the Game
The Houston Astros scored four runs in the final two innings in their 6-3 win over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday.
With the game tied 2-2 in the top of the eighth inning, J.D. Martinez drove in Marwin Gonzales on a single. That gave the Astros a 3-2 lead and they added three more runs in the ninth.
Astros starting pitcher Erik Bedard gave up two runs in six innings, which is a great performance at Coors Field. Paul Clemens pitched the next 1.2 innings and he picked up the win.
Former Astro, Sergio Escalona, came out of the bullpen for the Rockies and took the loss. He gave up the RBI single to Martinez.
All-Star, Troy Tulowitzki (pictured, after hitting a homer) provided all of the Rockies offense, going 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double and 3 RBI. He also scored two runs.
The Astros wrap up their two-game series at Colorado on Thursday.
