DENVER, May 17 (UPI) -- Rookie Nick Blackburn limited Colorado to two runs on six hits over seven innings Friday, sending the Minnesota Twins to a 4-2 win over Colorado.
Blackburn (4-2) struck out five and did not walk a batter in helping the Twins halt a three-game losing streak. It was Minnesota's first-ever appearance at Colorado's Coors Field.
The Rockies rallied to tie the game with two runs in the fourth and then got only three more hits the rest of the contest.
Ubaldo Jimenez (1-4) took the loss, giving up eight hits and three runs in seven innings.
Another sacrifice fly by Everett in the eighth delivered an insurance run.
