MLB: Colo. 7, Houston 6 (10 inn., 2nd gm.)

May 29, 2012 at 12:15 AM

DENVER, May 29 (UPI) -- Dexter Fowler had four hits, including a game-winning triple in the 10th inning Monday, that boosted Colorado to a 7-6 win and a doubleheader sweep of Houston.

Pinch-hitter Michael Cuddyer collected a single off Brett Myers (0-2) with one out in the 10th, and Fowler then lashed a pitch down the line past diving first baseman Carlos Lee to the right-field corner.

Brian Bogusevic retrieved the ball and fired it in but a sliding Cuddyer just beat the relay to the plate for the game-winning score.

Fowler finished 4-for-4 with a solo homer, three RBI and three runs scored while Marco Scutaro added a bases-clearing double for the Rockies, who had beaten the Astros 9-7 in the opener.

Josh Roenicke (1-0) earned the win with a scoreless top of the 10th.

Bogusevic stroked three hits, including a two-run homer, while Chris Snyder and Justin Maxwell also went deep for the Astros.
