The Rockies had converted 20 of 22 saves coming in and they were 23-0 when leading after six innings.
It appeared as though Colorado had put this one away with six runs in the fifth.
"When you put up a big number like that, you want to keep the lead obviously," Rockies manager Bud Black said. "Today was a rare occurrence. This hasn't happened. It's one of these days where they strung together hits. They found some holes.
"It's baseball. A baseball game was played. They hit some homers in the sixth inning themselves and crawled back into the game with their bats."
