But he gave up a game-tying solo home run to Joseph in the seventh inning, and was removed after Cesar Hernandez's double led off the eighth. At left is Ryan Hanigan.

Colorado Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez, left, rounds the bases after hitting a three-run home run off Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson during the third inning of a baseball game, Wednesday, May 24, 2017, in Philadelphia. Michael Saunders doubled with one out against Scott Oberg, and Tommy Joseph followed that up with a single to score Saunders and hand the Rockies a loss. Joseph has six homers and 12 extra-base hits in May after getting three extra-base hits in April, when he batted.179. "There's no telling what clicks in a guy".

Jeanmar Gomez, just activated from the disabled list, got the team through the 11th and earned the win.

Joseph (2-for-5, two RBIs) was the main offensive reason the Phillies (16-29) were able to snap a five-game losing streak, part of a larger stretch that saw them lose 20 out of their last 24 games.

The Colorado Rockies have been getting winning efforts from both their arms and bats which is why they are the owners of the best record in the National League and sit atop the West.

Trevor Story was responsible for the Rockies' only run, homering on an 0-2 count off Phillies starter Vince Velasquez to begin the fifth.

Gonzalez hit a three-run homer for the Rockies, who have won four straight.

"I was pretty happy that we got to Blackmon", Mackanin said.

Through 41 games (171 plate appearances) this season, Franco is hitting an underwhelming.221/.281/.377 with six home runs and 28 RBI's.

Odubel Herrera became Philadelphia's first player to strike out five times in a game since Roman Quinn on September 24.

Maikel Franco was back in the lineup and the cleanup spot, and went 1-5 with a single.

UP NEXTRockies: LHP Tyler Anderson (3-4, 6.00) has been really good for Colorado in his last three starts (2-1, 3.06) but has struggled on the road this season in five outings (2-2, 6.66).

Phillies: RHP Aaron Nola (2-1, 3.52 ERA) is slated to pitch Friday against Cincinnati in his second start since returning from a trip to the DL caused by a back injury. Valasquez will be looking to bounce back from a 6-3 loss at Pittsburgh where he was charged with five runs on seven hits and two walks in 5.1 frames.
