Olivo's walkoff homer gives Rox dramatic win over Phils

DENVER (AP) - Miguel Olivo went 5 for 5, including a leadoff home run in the 10th inning that lifted the Colorado Rockies over the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 Wednesday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

Phillies ace Roy Halladay took a 3-1 lead into the seventh, but the Colorado native wound up with a no-decision after Brad Hawpe's tying, two-run triple.

Olivo sent Chad Durbin's first pitch far over the left-field wall, then flipped his bat in celebration. Olivo began the game in a 2-for-28 slump.

Joe Beimel (1-0) threw 1 1-3 scoreless innings. Durbin (0-1) took the loss on a cold, damp and windy day that followed an overnight snowfall.
