Nolan Jones had four hits and three RBIs, and the Colorado Rockies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 9-4 on Friday night in a matchup of last-place clubs.
“I was struggling there for a while but I feel like I’ve been having really good at-bats the past couple of weeks,” said Jones, who raised his average to .284 with his second career four-hit night. “It’s good to help the team get a win.”
Elias Díaz had two hits and drove in two runs as Colorado won for just the third time in nine games. The Rockies finished with 15 hits.
Nolan Gorman hit two solo homers for St. Louis, which has dropped six of eight. Gorman, who has 24 homers on the season, missed Thursday night’s 5-3 loss to Minnesota with a sore foot.
