Jon Gray was pretty darn good on Sunday.
Gray threw six scoreless innings and the Rockies did enough on offense for a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies at Coors Field. The Rockies take three of four games in the series.
He worked out of a couple of jams but gave up only one hit while walking four and striking out five while picking up the win. Gray is now 2-3.
Shortstop Trevor Story put the Rockies up 1-0 with an RBI single in the third inning. Then they broke the game open in the sixth.
Ian Desmond singled in a run to make it 2-0 and Tony Wolters added two more runs with a double.
Story now has a 10-game hitting streak. Outfielder Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-4 and finished the four games series 10-for-18 (.556) with two home runs, two triples and four RBIs.
The Rockies open a three-game set against the Washington Nationals on Monday, April 22 at Coors Field. Coverage starts at 6 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
