Entering Sunday, Wilin Rosario was hitting just .215 (14-for-65) but was leading NL rookies with at least 60 at-bats in homers (6) and slugging percentage (.569). Rosario also had five doubles, meaning all but three of his hits had gone for extra bases. With 21 strikeouts, he was averaging one every 3.1 at-bats.
Michael Cuddyer broke a string of 13 hitless at-bats with a single in the second inning Sunday. It was his first hit on the five-game homestand.
The Rockies are 4-9 in games started by left-handers and will face one Monday when Mark Buehrle starts for the Marlins. Buehrle is the only left-hander scheduled to oppose the Rockies on their six-game trip to Miami and Cincinnati.
