Rockies run wild on Pirates, win 16-4

Hunter Goodman homered twice and finished a triple shy of the cycle, Michael Toglia hit a grand slam and also singled and the Colorado Rockies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 16-4 in Denver on Saturday night.

Goodman had four hits and five RBIs to overshadow Ryan McMahon becoming the first Colorado player to steal home since Dexter Fowler did so on July 21, 2011.

McMahon had a sizable lead at third when catcher Yasmani Grandal lobbed a throw to the mound in the fifth. McMahon broke for home on the throw and scored standing up as Pittsburgh starter Jared Jones caught the ball.

McMahon, who also doubled twice, is the 16th player in Rockies franchise history to swipe home.

Jake Cave had three hits and Ezequiel Tovar added two for Colorado, which recorded a season high in runs.

Nick Gonzales homered among his two hits and Andrew McCutchen went deep for the fifth straight game at Coors Field for the Pirates. Bryan Reynolds had two hits to extend his hitting streak to 13 games, and Grandal also finished with two hits.

Goodman and Gonzales traded solo homers in the first 3 1/2 innings before the Rockies scored three times in the bottom of the fourth. Cave had a two-run double, and Goodman made it 4-1 with his RBI double.

Colorado continued to add on in the fifth and chased Jones in the inning. Charlie Blackmon led off with a walk, McMahon doubled and Elehuris Montero hit a sacrifice fly to center that scored Blackmon and moved McMahon to third to set up his steal of home.

Jones (4-6) allowed six runs on six hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out six.

Pittsburgh got one run back against Rockies starter Ty Blach in the sixth on Grandal’s infield single that drove in Gonzales.

Blach (3-4) allowed two runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings. He walked one and fanned five.

McCutchen hit a solo shot as part of a two-run seventh for the Pirates, who then surrendered three runs in the home half of the frame.

Toglia ripped his grand slam as part of a six-run eighth that blew the game open.
