DJ LeMahieu, Kyle Parker, and Nolan Arenado all hit solo home runs ... but the Rockies lost anyway.

The Rockies got a trio of solo home runs from DJ LeMahieu, Kyle Parker, and Nolan Arenado. And that was about it for the offense.

LeMahieu's second-inning blast was the longest of the season for Colorado at 460 feet ... until Parker's beat him by six feet in the fifth inning. Arenado added a shot to dead center field in the eigthth inning that went a mere 442 feet. Weight room. Carlos Gonzalez smashed an RBI double to left-center that nearly left the park to bring the Rockies within two at 6-4.

Yohan Flande was very Yohan Flande-ish ... Flande-y. He did Flande things, pitching five innings, giving up two earned runs, striking out five and walking three.

Inauspicious debut for Miguel Castro who walked the pitcher and gave up a three-run jack to some guy named Phil Gosselin who I'm being told is a real person. Castro was charged with four runs.

The Rockies got a triple play to end the eighth inning which was cool, I guess.
