Pirates 5, Rockies 4: Clint Barmes homered to tie it and Casey McGehee singled in the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth inning as Pittsburgh defeated visiting Colorado.

Andrew McCutchen knocked in three runs, including a two-run double that gave Pittsburgh a 3-2 lead in the seventh.
 
Carlos Gonzalez belted his first two homers of the season for the Rockies, both two-run blasts. His second homer, off reliever Tony Watson (1-0) in the eighth, gave Colorado a 4-3 lead.
