Rockies rally past Nationals 4-3

WASHINGTON (AP) - Jordan Pacheco doubled and scored the tiebreaking run on a ninth-inning wild pitch by Tyler Clippard, giving the Colorado Rockies a 4-3 comeback victory over the Washington Nationals on Sunday.

The NL East-leading Nationals took a 3-1 lead into the eighth, but a meltdown by their usually reliable bullpen cost them a chance to hit the All-Star break with their best record since the team moved to Washington in 2005.

Colorado's rally was fueled by Eric Young's first homer of the season and a pair of wild pitches.

Rex Brothers (4-2) worked the eighth and Rafael Betancourt got his 15th save, striking out pinch-hitter Jesus Flores with two outs and runners at second and third.
