Dexter Fowler had two hits and two RBIs and the Colorado Rockies used a big sixth inning to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4 Saturday night.
The start of the game was delayed 1 hour, 48 minutes because of a weather cell that slowly moved into the area before the first pitch. Heavy rain and lightning hit Coors Field after the scheduled 6:10 MDT start.
The Pirates have lost two straight after winning 14 of 19, but stayed four games ahead of St. Louis in the NL Central.
In the seventh inning, leadoff man Starling Marte left the game with a left hand injury and manager Clint Hurdle was ejected.
Things had started to turn for the Pirates in the previous inning.
Pittsburgh was leading 3-1 and A.J. Burnett, who beat the Rockies with a complete game Sunday in Pittsburgh, was cruising when the Rockies put together a two-out rally. Nolan Arenado doubled to score Michael Cuddyer, Jonathan Herrera walked and pinch-hitter Charlie Blackmon doubled to tie the game.
