DENVER (AP) - Chris Nelson swiped home in the eighth inning to send the Colorado Rockies to a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday, completing a four-game series sweep and extending their winning streak to season-best seven games.
With one out and runners on the corners, Reds reliever Nick Masset stepped off the rubber and whirled to second. Nelson broke for home on the play and scored easily, giving the Rockies a 6-5 lead.
Huston Street allowed a leadoff single to Ramon Hernandez in the bottom half, then struck out the side for his 17th save in 21 save opportunities.
