GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Wes Rogers drove in two runs as the Rockies win their third straight 5-3, and win the four-game set with Great Falls.

Craig Schlitter looked like he would struggle early in the game, walking two batters in the first. He was able to get out of jams via the double play in each of the first two innings, and finished his day with three innings pitched and no runs allowed.

The Rockies continue to score runs in bunches, when they had a four-run third. After a successful double steal, Wes Rogers doubled home the game's first two runs, followed by an RBI single from Forrest Wall and a sacrifice fly from Kevin Padlo.

Tony Bryant and the bullpen did their job, despite allowing two runs in the sixth. Nate Causey homered for the second straight game as an insurance run, and the Rockies hold on for the win.

They now head to Idaho Falls for a critical four-game series beginning Tuesday.
