The Cardinals offense was firing on all cylinders as Jorge De La Rosa's final start ended poorly.

In what was likely Jorge De La Rosa's final start for the Colorado Rockies, the team put together a rather disappointing performance as they fell 10-5 on Tuesday night.

De La Rosa struggled early, and it led to a very poor final outing for his Rockies' career. De La Rosa allowed eight runs (seven earned) and seven hits through just 4 2/3 innings. He struck out an impressive eight batters, but walked three. The veteran left-hander finished his season with a 8-8 record and a 5.51 ERA. It's important to not let that overshadow his 4.20 ERA over his last 182 games in a Rockies' uniform.

Eddie Butler's miserable 2016 campaign continued as he allowed six hits and two runs in just 1 1/3 innings. Justin Miller, Matt Carasiti, and Jason Motte all threw one clean inning apiece.

David Dahl picked up his 22nd RBI in the first inning, when he singled in Charlie Blackmon. The Rockies tacked on four more runs over the course of the game, three of which were solo homers. Daniel Descalso, Charlie Blackmon, and Gerardo Parra all went deep off of Adam Wainwright. Raimel Tapia picked up an RBI in the ninth when he singled in Descalso from second base.

The Rockies face the Cardinals tomorrow at 1:10 PM MT as they try and avoid being swept at home.
