How the game went: Jason Marquis allowed three runs in the first inning, but settled down after that. The Rockies didn't do much offensively until the fifth inning when Ian Stewart launched a three-run home run to tie the game at three. Todd Helton put the Rockies ahead 4-3 on a sac fly in the sixth inning. To start the bottom of the seventh, Hunter Pence launched a homer to tie the game at four. The Astros took the lead later that inning when a double play turned into a not double play on a Joel Peralta fielding error (at first it was charged to Clint Barmes, but it was clearly a failed catch on Peralta's end). Pence added an insurance run in the bottom of the eight with an RBI single.
Rockies offensive star of the night: Ian Stewart who went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer. Ian Stewart has 22 hits this season, eight via the long ball. But we know the real star of the night was Hunter Pence with his 4-for-5, 2 R, 1 HR, 3 RBI night.
Rockies pitching: Marquis allowed four runs on ten hits and four walks, Manny got charge with a run, and Peralta had that error that put the Astros ahead.
