Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

DENVER (AP) – DJ LeMahieu homered, doubled and drove in three runs, reliever Jorge De La Rosa settled down a slugfest with four perfect innings and the Colorado Rockies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 11-5 on Thursday.

The game was a makeup of the April 28 contest that was postponed by weather.

Ryan Raburn, Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado each drove in two runs as Colorado snapped an eight-game skid to the Pirates at Coors Field.

De La Rosa (2-4) retired all 12 batters he faced after starter Chad Bettis struggled. De La Rosa also brought in a run with a bunt.

Jeff Locke (5-4) had his four-game winning streak halted. He surrendered 11 runs and saw his ERA soar from 4.28 to 5.38.
