Rox continue hot play with win

CINCINNATI ” Colorado piled up 15 hits in less than five innings off Homer Bailey, another offensive splurge that sent Jorge De La Rosa and Colorado to a victory over Cincinnati.

Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 607th career homer off De La Rosa (5-5), who gave up two hits in 6 2-3 innings of a breakthrough win. The left-hander hadn’t won a game on the road all season.

Every Rockies starter had at least one hit off the right-handed Bailey (0-4), who left after De La Rosa singled home a pair of runs with two outs in the fourth for a



5-1 lead.

Colorado’s offense has been running full-throttle since the All-Star break, setting up an 8-1 surge that suggests the Rockies may not be out of it in the weak NL West. Colorado has averaged 7.2 runs during that tear, and has piled up at least 11 hits in each of its last seven games.



The Reds are 4-5 on a homestand since the All-Star break, leaving them marooned in fourth in the NL Central.
