Yorvit Torrealba blasts Rockies into NLDS tie, Rockies beat Phillies 5-4

Colorado scored a first inning run from Carlos Gonzalez, later got a two run home run from Yorvit Torrealba and an effective pitching performance from Aaron Cook and several relievers to defeat the Phillies 5-4 on Thursday and even their NLDS series at one game apiece as the teams now head to Denver and Coors Field for games three and four.

Cook pitched brilliantly before running into trouble in the sixth inning, when the Phillies wound up scoring three of their four runs. Jose Contreras was called on to get out of the inning, eventually inducing an inning double play from Carlos Ruiz to put a stop to the rally. Matt Belisle pitched a scoreless seventh, but Rockies killer Jayson Werth hit a solo home run off of Rafael Betancourt with two outs in the eighth to pull the Phillies back within one run. Franklin Morales finished the inning before giving way to Huston Street who required a little drama, walking Matt Stairs and allowing a two out single to Jimmy Rollins before recording the save.

Dexter Fowler drove in two runs, both with sacrifice flies including the eventual game winner in the top of the seventh inning after the Rockies loaded the bases with none out.

 

WOOT!!! HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE NOW, MONKEYS!!!
