The Rockies walked on the highwire in this game but they came out on top. Aaron Cook was just good enough to earn the win in his game as he worked 5 innings allowing 7 hits and 3 earned runs. Jose Contreras, Matt Belisle, Rafael Betancourt and Franklin Morales got the game to closer Huston Street by working 3 innings and allowing 1 run (Betancourt gave up a homer to Jayson Werth). Huston Street make it exciting walking a batter and giving up a hit before slamming the door shut on the Phillies to earn the save. Yorvit Torrealba led the way for the offense as he was 2 for 3 with a run scored, homer and 2 RBIs. Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler were flip flopped in the lineup and they made manager Jim Tracy look like a genius. Gonzalez who led off the game for the Rockies was 3 for 5 with a run scored and a stolen base. Dexter Fowler was 0 for 2 but he knocked in two runs. This series is now tied 1-1 as it shifts to Coors Field.
