DENVER (AP) - Seth Smith homered twice and the Colorado Rockies beat the Florida Marlins 8-4 on Sunday after attending an emotional Coors Field memorial service for team president Keli McGregor.
Several thousand people attended the pregame ballpark services for McGregor, 48, who passed away unexpectedly last week. He was found unconscious in a hotel room on Tuesday and later pronounced dead. Salt Lake City police have said there were no signs of foul play and the medical examiner's office has assumed the investigation of his death.
Jorge De La Rosa pitched five solid innings and Miguel Olivo also homered for the Rockies.
Chris Volstad (1-2) gave up seven runs and seven hits in 4 1-3 innings for Florida.
