Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado has been coming through in the clutch this season whether it's offensively or defensively. Arenado's run-scoring double in the sixth inning sparked the Rockies to a 4-3 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday afternoon at Marlins Park. It was Arenado's 43rd RBI of the season — and 23 of those have come with two outs. Arenado a 22-year-old rookie from Newport Beach Calif. also made a couple of standout fielding plays at third base including one that got the Rockies out of a bases-loaded jam. His heroics were needed on a day that the Rockies started less than half their normal regulars including the injured Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki and the resting Wilin Rosario Todd Helton and Dexter Fowler. The Rockies finished their 10-game road trip at 4-6. But they took two out of three from the Marlins to win their first road series since July 10 at San Diego. With two outs and the score tied 3-3 in the sixth the Rockies regained the lead when Michael Cuddyer singled and Arenado doubled to left. Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa (14-6) earned the win even though he lasted just five innings and allowed three runs. The Rockies' bullpen was stellar — Adam Ottavino Josh Outman Wilton Lopez Matt Belisle and Rex Brothers combined to pitch four scoreless innings. Brothers worked around two walks in the ninth to earn his 13th save. Colorado's bullpen was a big improvement over the previous series in Philadelphia that the Rockies would have won had they not blown ninth-inning leads in the last two games. Marlins starter Jacob Turner (3-5) took the loss after allowing four runs (three earned) in 5 ⅔ innings.
