Phillies Vs. Rockies Final Score: Losing Streak Continues As Philadelphia Goes Down 6-2

The Philadelphia Phillies were unable to halt their losing streak despite the All-Star Break, losing to the Colorado Rockies Friday night to make it five in a row. The final score was 6-2.

Cliff Lee (1-6) gave up nine hits and three runs, two of them earned, over six innings for the Phillies, throwing 95 pitches in his first start since picking up his first win of the season. Colorado scored first, picking up a run in the bottom of the second, but Jimmy Rollins answered in the top of the third with an RBI double to tie the game at 1-1. Lee's evening would end in the sixth after giving up two more runs, the first on a sacrifice fly to Josh Rutledge, the second a single to Eric Young Jr.

Michael Schwimer relieved Lee and lasted only two-thirds of an inning, giving up an RBI single and an RBI triple. The Rockies added another on a throwing error by Carlos Ruiz, and Colorado led 6-1. Chase Utley made it 6-2 in the eighth with a sacrifice fly, but that was as close as Philadelphia would get.

The Phillies drop to 37-51 with the loss. They'll look to turn things around on Saturday, when Game 2 of the three game series takes place at 8:10 p.m. ET.
