A tough road trip continued Monday in Colorado, as the Astros fell to the Rockies 7-6 in 10 innings and were swept a doubleheader
Brett Meyers gave up two hits in the 10th, including a triple, and picked up his second loss of the season.
Colorado opened up the scoring with a leadoff homer from Dexter Fowler in the first inning. After back-to-back two-run innings in the third and fourth, the Astros took a 4-2 lead. But Houston starter Jordan Lyles allowed a bases-loaded walk and three-run triple in the bottom of the fourth and Colorado took a 6-4 lead.
Lyles gave up six runs (four earned) over five innings. But after him, the Astros used a total of seven pitchers over the final 4.1 innings. Brian Bogusevic led Houston at the plate, going 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs. Marwin Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a run scored.
