The Colorado Rockies played their second of four consecutive games against the Houston Astros on Tuesday. It was the finale of the two-game series in Houston. The game was tight most of the way, but the Rockies used a run in the ninth inning to win 2-1.

Going into the top of the ninth the game was tied 1-1.  The Astros brought in their closer Jose Veras to give the ‘Stros a chance to win it in their half of the inning.  Veras’ troubles started right away as Troy Tulowitzki led off the inning with a double.

Veras then threw a wild pitch to the next hitter, Michael Cuddyer on an 0-2 count. That allowed Tulowitzki to advance to third.  Cuddyer then took a 1-2 curveball to left to drive in Tulowitzki.  In Cuddyer’s at-bat against Veras, he saw four consecutive curveballs.

The Astros lone run came in the fourth inning as Carlos Corporan scored on a fielder’s choice.

With the loss, Jose Veras’ record dropped to (0-4). Matt Belisle picked up the win for Colorado and Rafael Betancourt notched his 11th save.

The Rockies and Astros now travel to Colorado to play two games on Wednesday & Thursday.
