Hampson's single in 10th rallies Rockies past Marlins, 7-6
By MICHAEL KELLY
DENVER (AP) --- Garrett Hampson hit a bases-loaded single in the bottom of the
10th inning, and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Miami Marlins 7-6 on
Sunday, completing a three-game sweep.
Nolan Arenado homered twice for Colorado, which has won four straight and swept
a series for the first time since June 18-20.
The Rockies loaded the bases with no outs in the 10th against Jeff Brigham
(2-2). Yonathan Daza had an infield single, Raimel Tapia reached on second
baseman Isan Daz's second error of the game and Ryan McMahon singled.
The Marlins brought right fielder Brian Anderson into the infield, leaving two
outfielders. Brigham struck out Ian Desmond before Hampson lifted a pitch to
left to score Daza.
Arenado gave the Rockies a 4-3 lead in eighth inning with his 30th home run of
the season, a two-run shot off of reliever Austin Brice. Colorado's Wade Davis,
who moved back into the closer's role he lost to Scott Oberg two weeks ago,
started the ninth by walking Jorge Alfaro. Lewis Brinson doubled and Neil
Walker singled to tie it.
Carlos Estevez (2-2) came on and allowed a sacrifice fly and Brian Anderson's
double, which gave Miami a 6-4 lead. But Daz error in the bottom of the inning
helped the Rockies tie it against Ryne Stanek. Charlie Blackmon's RBI single
and a sacrifice fly by Trevor Story sent the game to extra innings.
Blackmon hit his 26th homer in the sixth to cut the Marlins' lead to 3-2.
Harold Ramrez had three hits and two RBIs to help put the Marlins ahead.
Starter Jordan Yamamoto struck out nine in 5 2/3 innings.
Rockies: RHP Oberg was placed on the 10-day injured list with a blood clot in
his right arm. Oberg had a procedure to dissolve the clot at a hospital on
Saturday and stayed overnight, manager Bud Black said. Colorado recalled RHP DJ
Johnson from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Marlins: RHP Elieser Hernndez (2-5, 5.40 ERA) will open a three-game series at
Atlanta starting Tuesday. It will be his third start and eighth appearance
against the Braves.
Rockies: RHP Chi Chi Gonzlez (0-4, 6.57) takes the mound at Arizona on Monday
for the start of a three-game series against the Diamondbacks.
