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.

Colorado took control of the game in the first inning as DJ LeMahieu singled with one out and Troy Tulowitzki followed with a walk. Cuddyer then singled home LeMahieu and Rosario followed with a two-run double. Todd Helton then singled to score Rosario for a 4-0 lead.
