DENVER (AP) -- Jordan Pacheco homered among his three hits as the banged-up Colorado Rockies slowed down Giancarlo Stanton and beat the Miami Marlins 3-2 Sunday. Stanton went homerless for the first time in seven games at Coors Field. On Saturday night, he became the first player in big league history to homer in his first six games in a particular park, the Marlins said in citing the Elias Sports Bureau. Stanton drew two intentional walks and went 0 for 2 in the series finale. Rockies outfielder Eric Young Jr. left after one inning with a strain in his left ribcage and shortstop Josh Rutledge exited in the fifth with tightness in his left thigh. Before the game, Colorado put outfielder Michael Cuddyer back on the 15-day disabled list after he aggravated a right oblique strain in Saturday's loss. John Buck homered for the Marlins. Adam Ottavino (5-1) tossed three scoreless innings for the win and Rafael Betancourt pitched the ninth for his 23rd save. Josh Johnson (7-10) lost his third consecutive start. He gave up three runs and seven hits in seven innings. Colorado looked overmatched early by Johnson but broke through in the fourth. Rutledge reached on an infield hit -- Colorado's first of the game -- and scored on Dexter Fowler's double. Two outs later Pacheco homered to left to give the Rockies a 3-2 lead. It was his second of the year and first since May 17. Rockies starter Drew Pomeranz allowed two runs on three hits and four walks in four innings. The key player in the trade that sent Ubaldo Jimenez to Cleveland last season, Pomeranz is 1-7 and has failed to pitch more than four innings in each of his last four starts. The Marlins got to him early, scoring an unearned run in the first and loading the bases before Buck grounded out to end the threat. Buck led off the fourth with his ninth home run to make it 2-0. Ottavino shut down the Marlins on one hit in three innings. He worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth and retired the final eight batters he faced. NOTES: The Marlins activated OF Emilio Bonifacio and INF Donnie Murphy from the 15-day DL. ... Pacheco has six three-hit games this season.
