GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)-- The Grand Junction Rockies (COL) have found their mo-jo again.

For the first time in the second half of the 2012 season, Grand Junction completed a series sweep.

The Rockies defeated the Helena Brewers 5-4 on Wednesday on the back of Johendi Jiminian, who registered his first win of the season.

Jiminian started out very shaky, surrendering hits to the first three batters he faced. After a two-run first inning, he settled down for four shutout frames and racked up five strikeouts.

David Dahl also kept his hitting streak alive with a RBI-double in the fifth inning. The 18-year-old from Alabama now has 27 consecutive games with a hit. The Pioneer League record is 32 games.
