Recap: Colorado vs. Miami

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Jorge De La Rosa worked six shutout innings to lead the Colorado Rockies to a 2-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday.

De La Rosa (10-5) scattered five hits and a walk while fanning five to pick up the win. De La Rosa reached the 10-win plateau for the first time since going 16-9 for the Rockies in 2009.

DJ LeMahieu and Nolan Arenado drove in one run apiece for the Rockies, who had dropped three of their last five games.

Rex Brothers worked around a two-out walk in the ninth to notch his sixth save of the season.

Donovan Solano went 3-for-4 with an RBI for the Marlins, who had won two straight entering the contest.

Jacob Turner (3-3) was the hard-luck loser, allowing two runs on six hits over six innings.

The Rockies broke through in the second inning. Todd Helton laced a two-out double to left field then scored on Arenado's base hit to left.

LeMahieu's sacrifice fly in the fifth made it 2-0. Yorvit Torrealba hit a leadoff single, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt before advancing to third on Dexter Fowler's base hit to right. LeMahieu followed with a fly ball to center to score Torrealba.

Reliever Edgmer Escalona loaded the bases with no outs, but was able to strike out Adeiny Hechavarria before he was replaced by Josh Outman. The lefty fanned Christian Yelich and got Giancarlo Stanton to ground out to third to end the threat.

"You talk about worst-case scenarios, and this exactly what unfolded. Our guys did a good job to get out of it," said Rockies manager Walt Weiss.

Miami finally got on the board in the eighth inning. Placido Polanco grounded into a potential double play, but Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki's throw sailed out of play allowing Polanco to take second base. Polanco moved to third on Jake Marisnick's ground out before coming around on Solano's single to right field.

After recording the first two outs of the ninth, Brothers intentionally walked Stanton, bringing the potential winning-run to the plate. Brothers was able to retire Ed Lucas to end the game.

"Hits don't matter unless you get them when it matters. We could have 30 hits, it means nothing if we don't get them when it matters," said Stanton.
