The Colorado Rockies won their sixth straight game in emphatic fashion with a 13-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. The game was well in hand early as the Rockies scored 10 runs against Blue Jays starter Edwin Jackson in just 2 1⁄3 innings. Staked to an eight-run lead, Rockies starter German Márquez took the reins from there, allowing just two runs on six hits in seven innings of work, walking three and striking out seven.
Trevor Story powered the Rockies offense tonight, hitting a pair of home runs and driving in seven. Story started the Rockies’ offensive onslaught with a two-run home run against Blue Jays starter Edwin Jackson in the bottom of the first. He capped his team’s scoring in the same fashion with another two-run homer in the seventh to give the Rockies a 13-2 lead. In between, he had a bases loaded double to drive in three, giving the Rockies a 9-2 lead in the third.

With the game well in hand in the ninth, Rockies prospect Jesus Tinoco made his big league debut. With that, all four players the Rockies acquired in the Troy Tulowitzki trade have appeared with them in the majors. Tinoco pitched a scoreless inning in his debut, allowing a hit and striking out a pair against the team that signed him as an amateur.
The Rockies will look for their seventh straight win tomorrow, with Jon Gray taking the mound against Toronto’s Marcus Stroman. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. Mountain time.
