|Rockies Outlast Cardinals in 15, 7-6
|DENVER (AP)--Corey Dickerson's RBI triple with one out in the bottom of the 15th inning gave the Colorado Rockies a 7-6 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday.
Charlie Blackmon finished with four hits and Troy Tulowitzki and Todd Helton homered for the Rockies in tying the second-longest game in Coors Field history.
Matt Holliday had three hits for the Cardinals, who had their NL Central Division lead over Pittsburgh trimmed to one game. The Pirates beat San Diego 10-1 on Thursday.
DJ LeMahieu started the winning rally with a one-out single to right. Dickerson then drilled a line drive into the right-field corner as LeMahieu rounded the bases. The relay from second baseman Matt Carpenter beat LeMahieu but catcher Yadier Molina couldn't control the ball as LeMahieu crawled to touch home.
