DENVER - The Colorado Rockies were out for revenge against the St. Louis Cardinals in a three-game set at Coors Field but were unable to find it, getting throttled in the finale by a score of 12-3.

Other than two standout innings, the Rockies got pretty well outplayed by the Cardinals in the series but did manage to take a game against a team they always struggle against.

Matt Carpenter led off the first by hitting a high fly ball that was just out of the reach of a leaping Carlos Gonzalez in right, bouncing off the wall for a double. Anderson got a groundout and a strikeout to freeze Carpenter at second and, in a full count, was a strike away escaping any damage but Tyler O'Neil went down and put the barrel on one that looked like it would fall just short off the bat.
