Astros Vs. Rockies Score Update: Houston Trails 6-5 After 5 Innings

A four-run fifth for Colorado is the difference in Houston's second game against the Rockies on Monday.

In the back-and-forth affair, Colorado scored first on a leadoff homer from Dexter Fowler in the first inning. Brian Bogusevic put the Astros in front with a two-run home run in the third inning, but Fowler scored again on an RBI-groundout from Carlos Gonzalez in the following frame.

In the fourth, Chris Snyder hit a solo homer and Jordan Schaefer singled to give the Astros a 4-2 lead. But in the bottom frame, Houston starter Jordan Lyles found himself in a jam. Colorado loaded the bases with no outs, but a fielder's choice and strikeout had Lyles one out away from getting out unscathed. But Fowler drew a walk and Marco Scutaro drove in three with a double, giving Colorado a 6-4 lead. In the fifth, Snyder cut the deficit to one with an RBI-single.

Bogusevic, Snyder and Carlos Lee are 2-for-3 for Houston
