Astros Vs. Rockies, Final Score: Houston Loses Fifth Straight, 13-5

A barrage of Rockies home runs, including three by Carlos Gonzalez, put the Astros on the verge of being swept in Denver in a 13-5 loss on Wednesday night. Lucas Harrell was roughed up early, walking two batters - both on 3-2 counts - to set up a grand slam by Michael Cuddyer (quote courtesy of MLB.com):

"The big thing in that first inning was those two walks," Mills said. "Both of them were off a 3-2 count, but that was the big thing to load it up for Cuddyer. I thought his stuff was real good, though. He had real good sink of his fastball. He was just trying to command it and he wasn't getting some of those calls down and he got behind a couple of guys and they were able to get on."

The Astros would rally from down 5-1 in the fourth on a two-out double from Chris Snyder that tied the game, but Colorado would score seven runs in the fifth and sixth innings to break the game open.
