The Colorado Rockies stopped an eight-game skid by scoring eight runs in the top of the 10th inning to beat the host Detroit Tigers 12-4 on Friday. It was the most runs the Rockies have ever scored in an extra inning. Wilin Rosario started the scoring barrage when he hit a one-out, bases-loaded single that scored two runs off Detroit closer Jose Valverde. The big bash came from Carlos Gonzalez, who hit a three-run homer, his 17th of the year. "It was a huge win for us," starting pitcher Jeff Francis told the Denver Post. "We had lost a few games in a row and for us to come in here and keep it tight and then bust out like we did in the 10th inning, it was huge for us as a team." The Rockies had 16 hits in all. Chris Nelson hit a two-run homer, tripled, scored three runs and had three RBI.
