Rockies belt four homers in 6-3 win over O's

Greg Fiume

Charlie Culberson, Wilin Rosario, Charlie Blackmon, and Todd Helton each blasted home runs in Friday's win against the Orioles.

Colorado's road woes continued into Friday night, as they fell to the Baltimore Orioles in a lopsided affair. The offense continued their trend of leaving their bats in Colorado and spoiling another decent outing by the starting pitching.

Ahem. That would be a fairly typical summary for the Rockies' play in road games this year, but this was far from a typical game. The Rockies offense found a strong foothold at Camden Yards, and four Rockies belted homers on their way to a 6-3 win. After falling behind by two runs through the first four innings, the offense came back late in the game to out-slug and out-score a team which is still in the playoff picture for the AL East.

Nolan Arenado drove in the first run of the game with a slapped single in the fifth inning. Charlie Culberson tied the game with his first career home run, a solo shot to left field. Wilin Rosario, the team's designated hitter, added a 2-run shot  to the opposite field to put the Rockies up. Charlie Blackmon's homer in the 8th was the hardest hit of the night, and Helton hit his 8th home run of the year for the sixth run of  the game.

Juan Nicasio pitched six good innings, where he allowed two runs on four hits, including a Nate McClouth home run to lead off the bottom of the first. Rex Brothers allowed a solo home run to Matt Wieters, while Josh Outman and Matt Belisle each pitched perfect innings.

The Rockies have already tied their win total from the last road trip.  Here's to a few more.
