DENVER (AP) -- Dexter Fowler capped a big day at the plate with a game-ending triple off Brett Myers with one out in the 10th inning Monday night, giving the Colorado Rockies a 7-6 win and a sweep of their doubleheader with the Houston Astros.
The Rockies won the opener 9-7.
Fowler lined a pitch past a diving first baseman Carlos Lee and the ball ended up in the right field corner as Michael Cuddyer, who singled, scored from first.
After Cuddyer slid across home plate, Fowler ripped off his helmet and threw it across the field in excitement.
Josh Roenicke (1-0) pitched a scoreless 10th for the win. Myers fell to 0-2.
The Rockies had entered the day 6-18 in May.

The Astros threw out runners at the plate in the seventh and eighth innings to preserve the 6-6 deadlock in the nightcap, and they escap...

Someone asked me last week, before the Astros lost four straight games to the Dodgers and Rockies, what would happen if this club ends up three or four games out of first place by the All-Star break in terms of potential trades of veterans.

The Houston Astros are playing above preseason expectations so far this season, and right-handed starting pitcher Bud Norris is a big reason why. Entering Saturday's start against the Dodgers, Norris has a 0.35 earned-run average in May.
Houston manager Brad Mills rejected "sloppy" as the correct way to describe the Astros' 9-7 defeat against the Colorado Rockies in the front end of a Memorial Day doubleheader. Then again, Mills wasn't using the use of "tidy," either, after the Astros had committed three errors that led to four unearned runs. The Astros allowed two more unearned runs...
