Rockies end five-game skid by edging Cardinals

rockies

Michael Toglia drove in a run and made a run-saving catch as the visiting Colorado Rockies edged the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Thursday to snap a five-game losing streak.

Rockies starting pitcher Cal Quantrill (5-4) blanked the Cardinals for five innings while allowing three hits and four walks. He struck out one.

Tyler Kinley earned his third save

Cardinals starting pitcher Sonny Gray (7-4) surrendered three runs on two hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out five.

Colorado moved ahead 1-0 in the third inning. Jake Cave walked, moved to third on Toglia’s single and scored when Charlie Blackmon grounded into a forceout.

Quantrill dodged trouble in the fourth inning. Nolan Gorman and Nolan Arenado drew one-out walks, but Brendan Donovan lined out and Ivan Herrera grounded into a forceout.

The Rockies increased their lead to 3-0 in the fifth inning. Brenton Doyle hit a leadoff single and Cave drew a one-out walk. After they executed a double steal, Toglia hit a run-scoring groundout, and Cave scored on a wild pitch.

After Gray walked Blackmon and Ezequiel Tovar, reliever Matthew Liberatore got Ryan McMahon to hit a rally-ending groundout.

In the bottom of the inning, Toglia robbed Matt Carpenter of solo homer with a leaping catch at the right field wall. Masyn Winn and Alec Burleson hit two-out singles, but Paul Goldschmidt grounded out to strand them.

Colorado threatened in the sixth when Elias Diaz walked and Brendan Rodgers hit a single to start the inning. But Liberatore retired the next three batters to escape.

The Cardinals cut their deficit to 3-2 in the bottom of the inning. Gorman hit a leadoff single off reliever Matt Carasiti, advanced on Donovan’s one-out single, and scored on an error.

After singles by Carpenter and Michael Siani produced another run, Victor Vodnik came on to coax an inning-ending groundout from Winn.
