Recap: Colorado vs. Miami

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Donovan Solano capped a four-run ninth inning with a two-run homer and the Miami Marlins held off the Colorado Rockies, 5-3, in the finale of a four-game series at Coors Field.

Giancarlo Stanton smacked an RBI double and Ed Lucas knocked in a run after Rob Brantly crossed the plate in the eighth to break a scoreless tie as the Marlins captured three games of this four-game set.

The Marlins came to Colorado on the heels of a three-game sweep to the Brewers and in the midst of a 37-inning scoreless streak.

"Great job to salvage what looked like was going to be a really rough road trip," said Marlins manager Mike Redmond.

Dan Jennings (1-1) pitched a perfect seventh in relief of Nathan Eovaldi, who tossed six innings of scoreless ball. Kevin Slowey surrendered three runs -- two earned -- in the ninth, but Steve Cishek closed the door to pick up his 20th save.

The Rockies only had three hits until the ninth. Michael Cuddyer, Wilin Rosario and Nolan Arenado each drove in a run during the final frame, but Jonathan Herrera hit into a game-ending double play.

Adam Ottavino (0-2) relieved starter Juan Nicasio after the contest went to a 1-hour and 33-minute rain delay at the conclusion of the seventh inning. He allowed the go-ahead run to score in the eighth on a wild pitch.

"Everytime you lose it's hard," said Ottavino. "Juan pitched a great game today and we were right there, had a good shot to win it and we were't able to execute."

Prior to the rain, Nicasio and Eovaldi were locked into a pitching duel. Nicasio struck out nine and allowed just two hits and a walk over seven frames, while Eovaldi yielded three hits and a pair of walks over a six-inning stint.

When the tarp came off the field, Ottavino took over to start the eighth and the Marlins took advantage.

Brantly and Greg Dobbs reached with consecutive two-out singles to put runners at the corners. Ottavino then threw a wild pitch and Brantly came home to give Miami a 1-0 lead.

The Marlins tacked on some extra insurance in the ninth, beginning the frame with back-to-back doubles from Christian Yelich and Stanton to take a 2-0 lead. Lucas then knocked in Stanton with an RBI single and Solano followed with a two-run blast to give the Marlins a five-run advantage.

Slowey tried to close it out but surrendered hits to all three batters he faced, with Cuddyer tagging him for an RBI double and Rosario bringing him in with a single to make it 5-2.

Cishek came on and served up a one-out RBI single to Arenado, but then got Herrera to ground into a double play to end the game.
