DENVER (AP) — Jared Triolo had two hits and two RBIs, Jason Delay had a three-run double, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Colorado Rockies 8-2 on Sunday.

Pirates left fielder Bryan Reynolds singled in the seventh to extend his hitting streak to 14 games, the longest active streak in the majors.

Four Pittsburgh pitchers combined to hold Colorado a pair of runs a day after the Rockies scored 16 for just the second time since 2018. They had three home runs and 10 extra-base hits on Saturday night. They finished with nine hits on Sunday.

“Their bats caught fire (Saturday),” Pirates starting pitcher Josh Fleming said. “(Delay) called a great game, Carmen (Mlodzinski) came in and got the huge double play, the huge rollover, kind of saved me there.”

Mlodzinski (1-2) got the victory with two innings of shutout relief.

“The biggest thing is we threw strikes,” manager Derek Shelton said. “We didn’t have a walk today. You cannot give up free bases in this ballpark or they come back to haunt you.”

Andrew McCutchen had a single for the Pirates but his streak of consecutive games with a home run at Coors Field was snapped at five. Oneil Cruz singled and doubled in his return to the lineup after missing two games with ankle soreness.

Pittsburgh got a run in the second on Jack Suwinski’s RBI single and squandered a chance to add to it in the fourth when Nick Gonzales was thrown out at third trying to execute a double steal.

The Pirates padded their lead with two outs in the sixth off starter Dakota Hudson (2-9) and reliever Victor Vodnik. Triolo had a two-run single and Delay cleared the bases with a three-run double, his first hit of the season.

“That span of four hitters really was the determining factor in the game,” Colorado manager Bud Black said. “Two outs, guys on second and third in a one-run game in the sixth inning. (Vodnik) hung a breaking ball, guy bounced it up the middle, and then the walk. They put the ball in play and found holes and the backbreaker was the double.”

Colorado averted the shutout when Jake Cave beat out a relay to avoid a double play, allowing Jacob Stallings to score from third. Nolan Jones, who had three hits, added an RBI single in the ninth.

Hunter Goodman, who had two home runs and five RBIs in Saturday night’s 16-4 win, crushed a pitch just foul of the pole in left field, a call that held up on a crew chief review.

“Good teams take pride in bouncing back from losses like Saturday night,” Triolo said. “We came in today with a plan to do so.”
