DENVER, Conn., May 18 (UPI) -- Ryan Spilborghs' pinch single in the bottom of the eighth inning Saturday gave the Colorado Rockies a 3-2 win over Minnesota.
The contest was knotted 2-2 when Spilborghs, batting for winner Matt Herges (2-0), delivered his game-winning hit through a drawn-in infield and into center. Jeff Baker, who had two runs and two hits, scored from third base.
Brian Fuentes worked out of trouble in the ninth for his fifth save.
After retiring the first 15 batters he faced, Hernandez (6-2) yielded three earned runs and eight hits in 7 1/3 innings.
