MLB: Philadelphia 5, Colorado 1

July 15, 2012 at 6:35 PM

DENVER, July 15 (UPI) -- Cole Hamels allowed only one run over eight innings and Hunter Pence blasted a three-run homer Sunday in Philadelphia's 5-1 victory over Colorado.

Hamels (11-4) kept the Rockies largely at bay, limiting them to six hits and a walk while striking out seven. He broke a personal three-start winless streak.

The left-hander earned the victory while reportedly negotiating a new, long-term contract with the Phillies ahead of the July 31 trade deadline.

Pence connected for his three-run clout in the fifth inning to break open a close game as Philadelphia won the rubber match of a three-game series.

Drew Pomeranz (1-4) took the loss for Colorado, yielding five runs on five hits in a five-inning stint.

Carlos Gonzalez provided the Rockies' only RBI.
