National League Game Summary - Colorado at Philadelphia
(Tuesday, May 27th)
Final Score: Colorado 6, Philadelphia 2
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Wilin Rosario hit the go-ahead three-
run home run in the seventh inning, and Colorado went on to post a 6-2 victory
over Philadelphia in the middle test of a three-game series on Tuesday.
Drew Stubbs finished with two hits, two runs scored and an RBI for the
Rockies, who rebounded nicely from Monday's series-opening 9-0 defeat. Troy
Tulowitzki and Brandon Barnes also drove in a run each.
Jorge De La Rosa (6-3) allowed a run on six hits and struck out four over six
Ben Revere and Darin Ruf produced solo homers for the Phillies, losers in five
of their last seven outings.
Cole Hamels (1-3) was charged with three hits and four runs over seven full
Hamels kept his club in the game, but made three crucial mistakes during his
final inning on the mound. He walked Corey Dickerson and Michael Cuddyer with
one out, then Rosario launched a two-out, three-run blast to right which put

Revere's first career homer, off Boone Logan, came with one away in the home
half, but Colorado answered in the eighth.
Jeff Rutledge slugged a triple to greet Jeff Manship and came in on a Stubbs
double. Stubbs moved to third on a groundout, and, after Tulowitzki was given
a free pass, scored when pinch-hitter Barnes grounded into a fielder's choice
off Mario Hollands to make it 6-2.
The Phils couldn't score despite loading the bases with none out in the home
third, and the Rockies responded one half-frame later. Carlos Ruiz and Cesar
Hernandez hit solid singles before Hamels reached on a bunt. However, De La
Rosa induced a fielder's choice grounder from Revere which erased Ruiz at
home, then Jimmy Rollins lined out and Chase Utley flied out to left.
"De La Rosa was huge," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said of his starter. "In the
third inning, getting out of that bases-loaded, no-out jam felt like the game
kind of turned right there. It was critical."
Stubbs led off the Rockies' next turn at the plate with a base hit, stole
second, moved to third on a D.J. LeMahieu single and scored on Tulowitzki's
fly to right.
Ruf drew the hosts even on his first homer of the season, with one down in the
