DENVER, May 16 (UPI) -- Jeromy Burnitz's fourth hit, an infield single with two out in the bottom of the eighth, was the difference Sunday as Colorado beat Philadelphia, 7-6.

After Philadelphia took a 3-0 lead on Ricky Ledee's first-inning home run, Burnitz got the Rockies on the board with an RBI single in the bottom half. He added an RBI double in the third to draw Colorado within a run before driving in Luis Gonzalez in the fourth with a base hit, giving the Rockies a 6-3 cushion.

Chase Utley tied it in the sixth with a three-run blast, but Colorado got to lefthanded reliever Rheal Cormier (2-3) two innings later.

Tying his career high for hits in a game, Burnitz hit a grounder to second. Utley dived to field it and made a throw to second that appeared to beat Castilla for the third out. But Castilla was called safe.
