Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - The Rockies got no more than an infield hit
off Pirates starter James McDonald, but still walked away with a win Wednesday
in the opener of a doubleheader.
Jason Giambi and Tyler Colvin both had sacrifice flies and Colorado squeezed
out a 2-1 win over Pittsburgh despite getting just three hits.
McDonald took a no-hitter into the seventh inning but gave up an infield
single to Troy Tulowitzki, then a sacrifice fly to the next batter for the
game's first run.
Chris Resop (0-2) allowed the second run to take the loss, while Matt Reynolds
(2-0) earned the win in relief of Rockies starter Juan Nicasio.
The Pirates won the weather-delayed opener of the series 5-4 on Tuesday after
Monday's postponement because of rain and wet snow.
Right-handers Jhoulys Chacin for Colorado and Charlie Morton for Pittsburgh
were starting the second game of the doubleheader. Both are after their first
wins of the season.
