Rockies beat Astros to snap slide

HOUSTON (AP) - Chris Nelson walked with the bases loaded in the 13th inning and the Colorado Rockies snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.

Pinch-hitter Tommy Field sparked the winning rally with a leadoff walk. Eric Young then reached on a bunt single against Jordan Lyles (2-8), with Field going on to third on an error by catcher Humberto Quintero.

Young moved up on defensive indifference, but Mark Ellis grounded out. Dexter Fowler was intentionally walked to set the stage for Nelson, who forced home the tiebreaking run. Pinch-hitter
Wilin Rosario added a sacrifice fly.

Matt Reynolds (1-2) pitched an inning to get the victory and Rafael Betancourt finished for his seventh save in 10 opportunities.
