GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)-- All four of the Rockies runs in their 4-3 win on Thursday came by way of the long-ball.

Grand Junction was trailing until the top of the eighth when Rockies newcomer Jose Briceno hit his first homer in the minors to tie the game at three.

Ben Waldrip followed that with a solo shot in the top of the ninth, which proved to be the winning run for the Rox.

Colorado Springs-native, Ryan Warner got the win after three shutout innings of relief work from the sixth through the eighth.
