It wasn't the prettiest of wins. But the Colorado Rockies will take it.
Jon Gray got through six innings, giving up four runs on six hits with three walks ad eight strikeouts.
Trailing 4-1 heading to the bottom of the third, the Rockies tied the game with a three-run inning. Gerardo Parra came through with a two-run single and Tony Wolters drew a bases-loaded walk.
Noel Cuevas drilled an RBI triple to bring Wolters home in the sixth. That run turned out to be the difference.
