Rockies fall to Marlins, 7-4, as Chad Kuhl and Austin Gomber get roughed up

Stymied by one of Miami’s aces and unable to get any offense going between the first and the last innings, the Rockies fell 7-4 to the Marlins on Wednesday night and lost another road series in the process.

Last-place Colorado dropped to 3-6-1 in road series this season, and 11-20 away from LoDo with the defeat at loanDepot Park.

The Rockies got on the board first by manufacturing a run after Yonathan Daza’s leadoff double. Pablo Lopez’s attempted pickoff of Daza went into center field, advancing Daza to third, and Charlie Blackmon brought Daza home with a sacrifice fly to give the visitors a 1-0 lead.

But Miami took control of the game in the third against right-hander Chad Kuhl, when the Marlins plated four runs.

Miguel Rojas led off the frame with a single, then Jon Berti’s RBI triple and Jazz Chisholm’s RBI single made it 2-0. Garrett Cooper, who had the game-winning RBI double in the eighth inning in the series opener on Tuesday, tacked on a two-run homer to center field to make it 4-1.

Meanwhile, Lopez remained in control on the mound after getting nicked for the first-inning run. The Venezuelan right-hander spun his sixth quality start of the season and looked like the same pitcher who shut out the Rockies for six innings at Coors Field in a Marlins win on May 30.
