The Colorado Rockies played their final 2020 intrasquad game Sunday at Coors Field.

Purple rode a five-run sixth inning to rally to defeat Pinstripes, 7-5. The game went six innings.

Chris Owings capped the inning with his second home run of the game, an opposite-field, three-run home run off of Jesus Tinoco to put Pinstripes ahead. Owings went 2-4 with four RBIs.

Shortstop Brendan Rodgers had two hits, drove in a run and scored one and also made a nice play to take a hit away from David Dahl in the fifth.

Purple starter Scott Oberg, who is normally a reliever, saw his first intrasquad action and worked a 1-2-3 first inning.

Trevor Story and Sam Hilliard each had a pair of hits for Pinstripes. Nolan Arenado ripped a two-run double in a four-run fifth inning that saw Purple take a 5-2 lead.

Right-hander Jon Gray started for the Pinstripes and went four innings, allowing two runs on seven hits with one walk and no strikeouts.

The Rockies will work out at Coors Field on Monday then fly to Texas for exhibition games against the Rangers on Tuesday and Wednesday ahead of Friday's regular season opener.
