Nelson and Rosario homer, Rockies beat Phillies

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Chris Nelson hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the seventh inning and Wilin Rosario added a two-run shot in the ninth Thursday night to help the Colorado Rockies snap a four-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory over Philadelphia Phillies.

Josh Roenicke (2-0) pitched 1 1-3 innings in relief of Jeff Francis to earn the victory. Roenicke was one of four Rockies relievers who combined for four scoreless innings while giving up two hits.

Rafael Betancourt worked the ninth for his 11th save in 14 chances.

Marco Scutaro had a pair of hits for the Rockies, who had lost 12 of 13 games entering Thursday.

Jimmy Rollins homered for Philadelphia, which was looking for its first three-game sweep of the season.
