So much for the home run drought.
Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon, without a home run through the first 19 games of the season, made his first long ball of the year a memorable one.
Blackmon crushed Juan Nicasio's 1-2 pitch over the right-center field wall with Tony Wolters aboard in the bottom of the 12th to give the Rockies a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Philles Friday night at Coors Field.
Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper broke a 2-2 tie with an RBI double in the top half of the 12th. It was Harper's fifth hit of the game.
Tony Wolters drew a one-out walk in the bottom of the 12th to set the stage for Blackmon's heroics.
The Rockies overcame a 2-0 deficit with a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth. Trevor Story drilled a home run to the left field concourse and Garrett Hampson chased home Ian Desmond witha two-out, blooop double double down the left field line.
The Rockies have won five straight games.
Game three against the Phillies is Saturday. Coverage of the game starts with Rockies All Access at 5 p.m. on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
