Aug. 19, 2012 at 6:32 PM   |   Comments

DENVER, Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Jordan Pacheco belted a go-ahead homer and Adam Ottavino led the Colorado bullpen with three scoreless innings Sunday in the Rockies' 3-2 win over Miami.

With Colorado trailing 2-0 in the fourth inning, Josh Rutledge led off with a single and scored when Dexter Fowler followed with a double.

Two outs later, Pachero came up and drove a pitch to left field that just cleared the fence, putting the Rockies ahead for good.

Ottavino (5-1) took over from starter Drew Pomeranz in the fifth, allowing only one hit while walking one and striking out two in three frames.

Matt Belisle tossed a scoreless eighth inning and Rafael Betancourt gained his 23rd save despite yielding two hits in the ninth as the Rockies earned a split in their four-game series.

Marlins starter Josh Johnson (7-10) was the loser, surrendering three runs on seven hits over seven innings.

John Buck hit a solo homer for Miami.
