Houston Astros Suffer Record-Tying Loss to Colorado Rockies

The Colorado Rockies set a team record with 25 hits as Kevin Kouzmanoff and Chris Iannetta each drove in five runs and the Rockies routed the Houston Astros 19-3 yesterday.

“You treasure these days in baseball, because you know how hard it is day in and day out,” Iannetta told MLB.com. “There are a lot of times when we’d score runs early, then don’t score another run. We scored runs early and kept scoring. You didn’t know when it was going to end.”

Rockies starting pitcher Kevin Millwood hit his second home run since joining the Rockies in August, “To come back out today and put up a strong outing meant a lot to me,” Millwood said. “Hopefully, it gets some people thinking about next year.”

Jordan Pacheco, Ty Wigginton and Tommy Field had four hits each for the Rockies, who broke the previous team mark of 24, accomplished most recently in a 16-4 win at Pittsburgh on Aug. 2, 2003.

The 16-run margin of defeat tied the Houston record, accomplished five times previously, according to STATS LLC. The only other time at home was a 17-1 loss to the Mets on Aug. 30, 1999.

The 19 runs allowed matched the second-most in franchise history, trailing only a 22-7 loss at the Chicago Cubs on June 3, 1987. It also was the second-most hits allowed behind 26 in an 18-2 defeat at Cincinnati on Aug. 3, 1989.
