On a chilly night in Colorado, the win streak ends

Maikel Franco has been giving the Phillies a much needed pop with his bat so far

The winning streak was great.

It came to an end in a very chilly game last night as Justin DeFratus gave up a HR to Nick Hundley in the 8th inning to break up a 5-5 tie.

The Phillies banged out 11 hits in the game, and left 14 runners on base during the game. Ryan Howard went 0-4 and left 4 runners stranded by himself, so the Phillies did have opportunities to do better in this game.

Grady Sizemore dove for a ball in right field when the game was tied in the bottom of the 7th with the game tied 3-3 - the Rockies scored 2 runs on that play, as Sizemore couldn't make the catch.

In the game, Maikel Franco had 3 RBI for the Phils going 3-4 at the plate.

The Rockies scored 3 runs in the first inning alone to pace themselves on their way to the 6-5 win.

So, this game was very close, the Phils look to get back on the winning side again tonight in chilly Denver with another 8:40 PM EDT start.
