Rockies beat Pirates 4-2 to snap 4-game skid

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jhoulys Chacin allowed one run on six hits over eight innings and the Colorado Rockies snapped a 4-game losing streak with a 4-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

Chacin (10-5), who has won 7 of his past nine decisions, stayed in the game after taking a sharp line drive off the bat of Starling Marte in the fifth inning.

Colorado's Troy Tulowitzki had a solo homer and an RBI single, and Todd Helton had a two-run single 16 years to the day after making his major-league debut in the same city.

Pirates rookie Gerrit Cole (5-5) needed 102 pitches to make it through 5 1-3 innings, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks with six strikeouts.
