HOUSTON (AP) - Mark Loretta hit a two-run homer with two outs in
the ninth to lift the Houston Astros to a 9-to-8 win over Colorado.
It's the second night in a row that the Astros hit a walk-off home
run off Rockies closer Brian Fuentes.
It was the fourth blown save in eight days for Fuentes. The
Rockies have lost eight straight.
With two outs, Fuentes walked Carlos Lee, who hit a grand slam
in the eleventh off Fuentes on Thursday night. Loretta followed
with his second home run of the season.
Dave Borkowski allowed one hit and walked one in the ninth for
the win. He's 2-and-3.
