DENVER, July 8 (UPI) -- Adam Eaton Sunday allowed four earned runs and eight hits in six innings as the Philadelphia Phillies topped Colorado, 8-4.

Philadelphia got two RBI from Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Howard and Shane Victorino.

Rollins had three hits, Howard hit an RBI single and a sacrifice fly and Victorino hit a two-run homer.

Pat Burrell and Chase Utley both had two hits and one RBI, and Eaton had a run and two hits for the Phillies, who split four games before the All-Star break -- and avoided going into the break as the first professional sports franchise to lose 10,000 games.

Eaton (8-5) walked one and struck out three.

Ryan Madson recorded his first save of the season.

Colorado got its runs on solo homers by Kaz Matsui in the first and Todd Helton in the third, while both Troy Tulowitzki and Cory Sullivan hit RBI singles in the second.

Matsui, Helton and Brad Hawpe all had two hits for the Rockies, who had a five-game winning streak snapped.
