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

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."
