Hot Colorado Rockies ignore chilly, beat Pittsburgh Pirates behind stellar start from German Marquez – The Denver Post

PITTSBURGH — Black long-sleeved shirts under their gray jerseys and white clouds of breath were the only clues that the Rockies were playing in frigid conditions Monday night.

Because the Rockies stayed red hot, beating the Pirates, 6-2, behind a stellar start from German Marquez and home runs by Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon. On a damp, frigid night (a wind chill of 27 degrees), the Rockies won for the fifth time in six games. They are 8-2 in their last 10 games away from Coors Field.

That Blackmon should homer — again — came as no surprise. The all-star center fielder’s solo drive to right field in the eighth inning was his seventh of the young season, all coming on the road.

BOX SCORE: Rockies 6, Pirates 2
