The Colorado Rockies red-hot pitching staff took a hit.

The result was a 5-4, 10-inning loss to the St. Louis Cardinals Monday night at Busch Stadium.

With the Rockies up 4-1 going to the bottom of the seventh, starter Tyler Anderson walked the bases loaded, then reliever Scott Oberg walked in a run to make it 4-2.

Matt Carpenter's two-run single in the inning tied the game at four and set the stage for Marcell Ozuna, who blasted his first career walk-off home run in the tenth inning. Ozuna hit it off Jake McGee.

Nolan Arenado hit his fifth career grand slam to give the Rockies a 4-0 lead in the fifth.

The loss snapped the Rockies' four-game winning streak.
