Rockies top Reds 12-7 in homer-fest

DENVER (AP) - Jordan Pacheco's first home run broke a fifth-inning tie and he added a two-run single in the eighth to lift the Colorado Rockies to a 12-7 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday.

The teams combined for nine home runs in the first five innings.

The Reds hit five homers off starter Alex White, who tied a Rockies record for homers allowed in a game. White gave up three homers in succession, and he has allowed nine homers in 22 innings in four starts with the Rockies.

White (2-1), acquired in the July 31 trade that sent pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez to the Cleveland Indians, lasted five innings. Staked to a 6-1 lead after two innings, White gave up a solo homer to Chris Heisey in the third and a two-run shot to Juan Francisco after walking Jay Bruce with two out.
