Welcome back, Ryan McMahon.
McMahon came off the injured list Thursday and proceeded to blast two home runs to lead the Colorado Rockies over the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-2.
His first one was a three-run shot that got the Rockies on the scoreboard and gave them a 3-0 lead in the sixth inning.
One inning later, he connected on a two=run shot to give the Rockies some breathing room and a 5-2 lead. He finished with five RBIs the first multi-homer game of his career.
Left-hander Kyle Freeland turned in six scoreless innings, allowing only two hits while stirking out seven.
The Rockies extended their winning streak to four games. They'll go after their fifth straight win in game two against the Phillies on Friday night. Coverage starts at 6 p.m. on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
