Recap: Colorado vs. Pittsburgh

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Wilin Rosario hit a two-run home run and drove in four as the Colorado Rockies dominated the Pittsburgh Pirates, 10-1, to open a three-game series.

Michael Cuddyer went 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored, while Nolan Arenado was 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored for the Rockies, who had lost five straight coming into the contest.

Jorge De La Rosa (11-6) benefited from the offensive output, and pitched a strong game as he gave up just a run on eight hits with three walks and three strikeouts in five innings of work.
