Denver, CO (Sports Network) – Nolan Arenado drove in the go-ahead run in the
bottom of the seventh inning, and the Colorado Rockies completed their first
three-game sweep in nearly four months with Sunday’s 3-2 victory over the NL
Central-leading Pittsburgh Pirates.

Arenado’s RBI double off reliever Bryan Morris (5-5) proved to be the
difference, with Rex Brothers working through a bases loaded jam in the
ninth to preserve his 10th save and Colorado’s first sweep since taking three
from the New York Mets on April 16-18.

DJ LeMahieu knocked in a run for the Rockies and Manny Corpas (1-2) tossed a
perfect seventh to relieve rookie starter Chad Bettis, who pitched an
effective six innings of two-run ball in his Coors Field debut.

Pedro Alvarez homered for Pittsburgh, but his throwing error in the bottom of
the sixth allowed the Rockies to tie the game at 2-2.
