Jordan Pacheco comes through as Rockies win slugfest against Reds

Jordan Pacheco hit his first career home run, one of nine HR'scombined by the Rockies and Reds on an old school Coors Field afternoon, and Pacheco finished with three hits and three RBI as the Rockies won 12-7 over Cincinnati. Rockies starter Alex White allowed five home runs in five innings, as his rough Rockies debut season continues.

The Rockies banged out 13 hits overall on the afternoon, only Seth Smith and Chris Iannetta were held without one among position players. Carlos Gonzalez had two hits, and scored two runs. Jason Giambi hit a two run home run, and Dexter Fowler and Mark Ellis also homered for the Rox.

Two of the home runs allowed by White were to Reds outfielder Chris Heisey, who coincidentally was once connected in rumors with the Reds on a potential Ubaldo Jimenez trade. Jimenez, of course, was traded to the Indians for White, among others. Rockies relievers Matt Belisle, Rex Brothers, Huston Street and Rafael Betancourt allowed just one hit and no runs in four innings after White was pulled.
