Rockies rally in 6th to top Pirates, 6-4

DENVER (AP) - Dexter Fowler had two hits and two RBIs and the Colorado Rockies used a big sixth inning to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4 Saturday night.

The start of the game was delayed 1 hour, 48 minutes because of a weather cell that slowly moved into the area before the first pitch. Heavy rain and lightning hit Coors Field after the scheduled 6:10 MDT start.

The Pirates have lost two straight after winning 14 of 19 and lost left fielder Starling Marte to a left hand injury in the seventh inning.

The Rockies put together a two-out rally in the sixth against A.J. Burnett. Nolan Arenado doubled to score Michael Cuddyer, Jonathan Herrera walked and pinch-hitter Charlie Blackmon doubled to tie the game 3-all.

Fowler laced a two-run single to end Burnett's night.

Burnett (5-8) allowed six runs - five earned - on eight hits while striking out eight in 5 2-3 innings.
