Brendan Rodgers rips three home runs, including walk-off, in Rockies win

DENVER (AP) — Brendan Rodgers hit three home runs, including a two-run walk-off drive in the 10th inning, to help the Colorado Rockies beat the Miami Marlins 13-12 on Wednesday night for a doubleheader split.

Rodgers, who had a one-out ninth-inning double in Miami’s 14-1 route in the first game, went deep against Marlins lefty Trevor Rogers to lead off the second to give him hits in 19 straight games. Then his liner to left in the fifth inning gave him his first multi-homer game.

The magic came in the 10th, when he pulled a changeup from Cole Sulser (0-3) into the left-field seats to give the Rockies their first series win in eight tries.
