Clint Barmes never felt this locked in. Too bad the rest of the Colorado Rockies don't feel the same way.

Barmes was a home run shy of hitting for the cycle last night and raised his average to .355. But his big night was wasted as the Rockies lost their sixth straight, 4-2, to the Minnesota Twins.

Nick Blackburn (4-2) struck out five and didn't walk a batter in seven strong innings. Delmon Young doubled twice and scored two runs to help the Twins end a three-game losing streak.

Joe Nathan remained perfect in 13 save opportunities.

Rockies left fielder Matt Holliday was a late scratch from the lineup because of tightness in his lower back.
