MIAMI (AP) -- Ryan Wheeler hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the eighth to help give the Colorado Rockies a 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins on Friday night. Jhoulys Chacin (12-7) allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings for the Rockies. Adam Ottavino pitched the eighth and Lex Brothers picked up his 12th save in 13 opportunities. Colorado's Wilin Rosario had his hitting streak snapped at 13 with an 0-for-4 night while Troy Tulowitzki extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a double in the first. Ed Lucas homered and Tom Koehler allowed one run in seven innings for Miami, which has lost four in a row. With the Rockies trailing 2-1 in the eighth, Tulowitzki got the rally started with a one-out double to center off Chad Qualls (4-2). Michael Cuddyer followed with an RBI single to score Tulowitzki to tie the game. After Rosario grounded out, Wheeler gave the Rockies a 3-2 lead with a double to center for his first RBI of the season. Brothers retired the Marlins in order in the ninth to preserve the victory. Lucas' home run to lead-off the fifth broke a scoreless tie. It was his third home run of the season and the first since July 22 at Colorado. DJ LeMahieu responded with a triple to begin the sixth and scored on a groundout by Cuddyer to tie the game at 1. Lucas had a chance to give the Marlins the lead in the bottom of the sixth, but grounded out to end the inning with the bases loaded. Jake Marisnick tripled to right in the seventh and scored on a sacrifice fly by pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs to give Miami a 2-1 lead. NOTES: Koehler also allowed one run in seven innings against the Rockies on July 22. ... Rockies RHP Rafael Betancourt (elbow) will have an MRI on Monday after suffering an injury on Wednesday at Philadelphia. "It doesn't look great," manager Walt Weiss said. "His elbow is pretty sore." ... Marlins phenom RHP Jose Fernandez (9-5, 2.41 ERA) will take the mound Saturday against Colorado RHP Jeff Manship (0-3, 7.80 ERA).
