Hoffman shines in Colorado's win over slumping Phillies

On the other side, the Rockies have dropped four of Chatwood's last five starts, are 1-6 in his last seven outings after scoring five runs or more in their previous game, and are 2-6 in his last eight outings when he starts the third game of a series.

The Rockies will counter with righthander Jeff Hoffman. They improved to 5-2 on this 10-game trip east and are now 16-7 away from Coors Field. He'll likely return to the minors but has impressed in both his outings with the big club.

No worries. Nolan Arenado hit a two-run homer and the Rockies scored four runs off Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff (0-5).

Blackmon - whose overgrown facial hair could give James Harden's cookie crumb catcher a run for its money - is not your prototypical leadoff hitter.

"Can't tell you", manager Bud Black said, smiling.

"He has the physical attributes to be a good one", Black said.

Mixing the occasional breaking stuff with a dominating fastball, Hoffman checked a box or two against the Phillies.

"We got three hits today, we got three hits yesterday", Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said.

Philadelphia opened a seven-game homestand with its 18th loss in the past 22 games.

"I felt pretty good", Marquez said through an interpreter.

Several expected key Phillies contributors have struggled, including Odubel Herrera (.236/.289/.643) and Maikel Franco (.225/.286/.670). "We'll pull out of it". With a ton of talented position players and a top of the rotation that featured some promising arms, they had the look of a squad that could pose a serious threat to the Los Angeles Dodgers or, at the very least, stick their nose into the wild card race. I might not have shown it past year or early on in the spring, but I think they have confidence in me now. "We've gone through a tough stretch". In four rehab games with Albuquerque, Story batted.273 (3-for-11) with one home run, two RBI, two walks, three strikeouts and one stolen base.

Edwin Encarnacion hit two of Cleveland's four homers off rookie Amir Garrett and scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in leading an 8-7 triumph over the Reds in Cincinnati.

Phillies: Triple-A second baseman Jesmuel Valentin could miss the rest of the season with a separated shoulder that will require surgery.

"I got behind in the count too much", Eflin said.

The Phillies are 8-1 in games Hellickson has started.

Klentak said there was no thought of moving scuffling starter Vince Velasquez into the bullpen.

Eickhoff admitted he had trouble with command and repeating his delivery during his funk but with help from pitching coach Bob McClure and assistant pitching coach Rick Kranitz, who noticed some fixes he could make, he's been better his last two starts.

Colorado - a National League-best 30-17 overall and an fantastic 17-7 on the road - got another solid start, if not a particularly pretty one, from rookie right-hander German Marquez, who improved to 3-2 and lowered his ERA to 3.86.
