For the second straight time, the Rockies wasted a quality start from right-hander Kyle Kendrick, dropping the second game of their series in Miami, 5-1.
Kendrick allowed just two runs on seven hits in 6⅔ innings, walking two and striking out four, but did not get support from either the Rockies offense or their bullpen.
The game was scoreless until the bottom of the fourth when Marlins center fielder singled home Christian Yelich after an at bat that saw a home run overturned and called a foul ball on replay and a potential double go inches foul.
In the sixth, Miami second baseman Martin Prado hit a home run against Kendrick that was not overturned, extending the Marlins' lead to 2-0.
The Rockies got on the board in the top of the seventh against Marlins starter Jose Urena when Carlos Gonzalez hit his seventh home run, an opposite-field solo shot, cutting the deficit to 2-1.
It was still 2-1 in the bottom of the eighth when Rockies reliever Scott Oberg walked Giancarlo Stanton and Justin Bour before coughing up a three-run home run to J.T. Realmuto, the final nail in the Rockies' coffin.
The Rockies will look to snap their three-game losing skid tomorrow as David Hale takes on Mat Latos.
